“Will OF GOD” FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

lUISA pICTURE

Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta,

 The Little Daughter of the Divine Will

  VOLUME 23 

September 21, 1927

How the soul who lives in the Divine Will places the acts of It in exercise. How the truth is perennial life and continuous miracle.

 I was going around throughout the whole Creation, asking for the Kingdom of the Supreme Fiat in each created thing; and my adored Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, since all created things are fixed in God, as you ask for the Kingdom of My Divine Will in each of them, the created things move in God and ask for My Kingdom.  Each of them forms its supplicating wave, the incessant motion to ask for what you want; and since created things are nothing other than acts come out of My Divine Will, and each act was given an office, as you ask for My Kingdom in each created thing, you place all the offices of the acts of My Supreme Volition in exercise around the Divine Being, and you make Our Goodness, Our Power, Justice and Mercy, Our Love and Wisdom, ask for the Kingdom of Our Will. 

“In fact, each created thing contains a Quality of Ours, and We feel waves of beauty, of power, of justice, of mercy, of love, of wisdom, coming to Us, one after the other, that, with Divine ways, supplicate, pray, plead for the Kingdom of the Divine Fiat in the midst of creatures. And in seeing Ourselves being prayed so much by the very acts of Our Divine Will, We ask:  ‘Who is she who moves a Will so great with all Its innumerable acts, to ask of Us that We give Our Kingdom to creatures?’ 

And Our Acts answer Us: ‘It is the little daughter of the Eternal Volition—it is the daughter of all of us, who, with so much love, moves Our Acts to ask for what we all want.’ 

And in the excess of Our Love, We say: ‘Ah! it is the little daughter of Our Will!  Let her do it—to her it is given to penetrate everywhere; let her pass freely, because she will not do anything, nor ask for anything, but what We Ourselves want.’”

After this, I was thinking about all that my adored Jesus had told me on His Divine Will, and it was as if I wanted additional and more sure proofs that it was Jesus who was speaking to me.

And Jesus, coming out from my interior, told me: “My daughter, there is no proof that is more certain and sure, and that can do greater good both to you and to others, than My having manifested to you so many truths.  Truth is more than miracle; it brings permanent Divine Life within itself, and wherever it reaches and in whomever listens to it, it bilocates the truth together with its life, to give itself to whomever wants it.  Therefore, My Truths are perennial light, not subject to being extinguished, as well as life that never dies. 

“What good can a Truth of Mine not produce? It can form Saints, it can convert souls, it can dispel darkness, and has the virtue of renewing the whole world.  Therefore, I perform a greater miracle when I manifest one of My Truths than when I give further proofs that it is I who go to the soul, or did other miraculous things, because these are the shadow of My Power—passing light; and because it is passing, it does not bring the miraculous virtue to all, but is limited to the individual who has received the miracle, and many times not even the one who has received the miracle makes himself a Saint.

“On the other hand, the truth contains life and, as life, brings its virtue to whomever wants it. Be certain, My daughter, that if in coming upon earth I had not spoken so many truths in the Gospel, even if I had done miracles, the Redemption would have been hampered, without development, because they would have found nothing, neither teachings nor light of truth, in order to learn the remedies, to find the way that leads to Heaven. 

“So it would be with you: had I not spoken to you so many Truths, especially on My adorable Will, that has been the greatest miracle I have done in these times, what good would your mission bring—the mission so great, entrusted to you, of making known the Kingdom of My Supreme Fiat?  On the other hand, because I have told you so many truths about It, My Divine Will can be known in the world; the order, the peace, the light, the lost happiness can be restored.  All these truths will bring man onto the lap of his Creator, that they may exchange the first kiss of Creation, and man may be given back the Image of He who created him. 

If you knew the great good that all these truths I have spoken to you will bring to creatures, your heart would split with joy. Nor can you fear that the infernal enemy might dare to manifest to you a single truth about My Divine Will.  In fact, before Its light, he trembles and flees, and each truth on My Will is one more hell for him; and because he wanted neither to love It nor to do It, It changed for him into torments that will have no end.  Before the mere word ‘Will of God,’ he feels himself burnt so much, that he flies into a rage, and he hates that Holy Will that torments him more than hell.  Therefore, you can be sure that Will of God and infernal enemy never get along, nor can they be together or close; Its light eclipses him and hurls him into the chasms of hell. 

“Therefore, what I recommend to you is that you let not even one truth or a simple word on My Divine Will be lost, because everything must serve to perform the chain of perennial miracles, so as to make known Its Kingdom and give back the lost happiness to creatures.”

The Unknown Passion of Jesus From The Book of Heaven

  PASSAGES ON THE UNKNOWN PASSION OF JESUS FROM

THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

lUISA pICTURE

Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta,

The Little Daughter of the Divine Will

 VOLUME 23 

September 17, 1927

The pains are like iron beaten by the hammer, that emits sparks. Differences between the cross of the Humanity of Our Lord and that of the Divine Will, and how the Divine Will has Its incessant Act.  

My Jesus, Life of my poor heart, come to sustain my weakness. I am still a little child, and I feel the extreme need for You to keep me in Your arms, to guide my hand while I write, to feed me the words, to give me Your Thoughts, Your Light, Your Love and Your very Will.  And if You do not do it, I will remain here like a fussy little girl, doing nothing.  If You love so much to make Your Most Holy Will known, You will be the first in the sacrifice; I will be in the secondary order.  Therefore, my Love, transform me into Yourself, take away from me the torpor I feel, for I can bear no more, and I will continue to fulfill Your Holy Will, even at the cost of my life.

So, continuing in my abandonment in the Divine Will, I felt myself in the nightmare of the pains; and my Beloved Jesus, clasping me to Himself to give me strength, told me: “My daughter, the pains are like iron beaten by the hammer, that makes it sparkle with light and become red-hot, to the point of being transformed into fire; and under the blows it receives, it loses its hardness, it softens, in such way that one can give it the shape one wants. 

“Such is the soul under the blows of pain: she loses hardness, she sparkles with light, she is transformed into My Love and becomes fire; and I, Divine Artificer, finding her soft, give her the shape I want.  Oh! how I delight in making her beautiful; I am a jealous Artificer, and I want the boast that no one can and knows how to make My statues, My vases—both in their form and in their beauty, and even more in their fineness and in the light that, sparkling, converts them all into truth. 

“So, for each blow I give her, I prepare a truth to be manifested, because each blow is a spark that the soul emits from herself; and I do not lose them as does the smith in beating the iron, but I use them to invest those sparks of light with surprising truth, such as to serve the soul as the most beautiful clothing, and to administer to her the nourishment of Divine Life.”

After this, I followed my sweet Jesus, but He was so afflicted and in suffering as to arouse pity; and I: “Tell me, my Love, what’s wrong?  Why do You suffer so much?” 

And Jesus added: “My daughter, I suffer because of the great sorrow of My Will.  My Humanity suffered, It had Its cross, but Its Life on earth was short; on the other hand, the Life of My Will in the midst of creatures is long—it has been already six thousand years, and will last even longer; and do you know who Its continuous cross is?  The human will.  Each act of it opposed to My Will, and each act of My Will that It does not receive, is a cross that it forms for My Eternal Volition.  Therefore, Its crosses are innumerable. 

“If you look at all Creation, you will find It all full of crosses formed by the human will. Look at the sun:  My Divine Will brings its light to creatures, and they take its light but do not recognize who He is that brings this light; and My Will receives so many crosses in the sun for as many as are those who do not recognize It, who, while they enjoy the light, use that very light to offend that Divine Will that illumines them.  Oh! how hard and painful it is to do good and not to be recognized. 

“The wind is full of crosses: each of its blows is a good that it brings to creatures, and they take and enjoy that good, but do not recognize who He is that, in the wind, caresses them, refreshes them, purifies the air for them.  And so It feels Itself being thrust with nails of ingratitude and crosses at each blow of the wind. 

“The water, the sea, the earth, are full of crosses formed by the human will. Who does not avail himself of water, of the sea, of the earth?  Everyone does; and yet, My Will, that preserves everything and is primary life of all created things, is not recognized, and is present in them only to receive crosses from the human ingratitude. 

“Therefore, the crosses of My Will are numberless and more painful than those of My Humanity; more so, since My Humanity does not lack some good souls who have comprehended Its sorrow, Its torments, the pains that they made Me suffer, and even My Death, compassionating Me and repairing for what I suffered in My mortal Life. On the other hand, those of My Divine Fiat are crosses that are not known, and therefore without compassion and without reparation.  This is why the sorrow that My Divine Will feels in all Creation is so great as to cause now the earth, now the sea, now the wind to burst with sorrow; and, in Its sorrow, It unloads scourges of destruction.  This is the extreme sorrow of My Will that, unable to endure any more, strikes those who do not recognize It.

“This is why I call you so very often to go around in all Creation, to make known to you what My Will does in It, the sorrow and the crosses It receives from creatures, so that you may recognize It in each created thing, love It, adore It, thank It, and be the first repairer and consoler of a Will so holy. In fact, only one who lives in It can penetrate into Its acts and recognize Its sorrows, and with Its very power, become the defender and the consoler of My Will that, for many centuries, has been living isolated and crucified in the midst of the human family.”

Now, while Jesus was saying this, I looked at the Creation, and I saw It as all full of crosses that could not be counted, so many they were; and as the Divine Will would issue Its acts from Itself to give them to creatures, the human will would issue its cross to crucify those Divine Acts. What sorrow! What pain! 

And my Beloved Jesus added: “My daughter, My Eternal Fiat has had an incessant act toward creatures from the moment It created the whole Creation, but because My reigning Will was missing in creatures, these acts were not received by them, and therefore remained suspended in the whole Creation within My very Divine Will.  Now, when I came upon earth, My first interest was to take into Myself Its incessant act, that had remained suspended within It because it had not been able to take its place in the creature; and My Humanity, united to the Word, first was to give place to this incessant act, giving satisfaction to it—and this was My unknown Passion, the longest and most painful—and then I occupied Myself with the Redemption. 

“The first act in the creature is the will; all other acts, whether bad or good, are in the secondary order. Therefore, I had to have, as first, the concern of placing in safety within Myself all the acts of My Divine Will, descending down below to the human acts, to reunite the two wills together, so that, in seeing Its acts being placed in safety, My Will might reconcile with creatures.  Now, today I invite you to take into yourself these acts rejected by creatures, because My Will continues Its incessant act, and remains with the sorrow of seeing it suspended within Itself, for It finds neither anyone who receives them, nor anyone who wants them, nor anyone who knows them.  Therefore, be attentive in working and suffering together with Me for the triumph of the Kingdom of My Divine Will.”

“Dominus Tecum”

 

lUISA pICTURE

Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta,

The Little Daughter of the Divine Will

 VOLUME 4

January 10, 1903

The most pleasing words for the sweet Mama.

This morning, after much hardship, the Queen Mother came with the Baby in Her arms, and gave Him to me, telling me to keep Him courted with continuous acts of love. I did that as much as I could, and while I was doing it, Jesus told me:  “My beloved, the most pleasing and consoling words for my Mother are ‘Dominus Tecum’ [‘The Lord is with Thee’].  In fact, as soon as they were pronounced by the Archangel, She felt the whole of the Divine Being being communicated to Her, and therefore She felt invested with divine Power, in such a way that, in the face of the divine Power, Her own power dissolved; and so my Mother remained with the divine Power in Her hands.”

Feast of St. Luke The Evangelist

Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist

 St. Luke 1

Today is the feast of St. Luke the Evangelist. It is believed that St. Luke was born a Greek and a gentile. A physician at Antioch, and a painter, St. Luke became a convert of Saint Paul and afterwards his fellow-laborer. Luke was the writer of the Gospel and its “companion volume,” the Acts of the Apostles and has been identified with St. Paul’s “Luke, the beloved physician” (Colossians 4:14). Saint Luke shared the shipwreck and perils of Saint Paul’s voyage to Rome, and was with him in his last days. He later died a martyr’s death in Achaia. After St. John, St. Luke’s writings (both his Gospel and Acts of the Apostles) are my favorite part of the New Testament. Although Luke was not an eye witness, he was a historian who carefully researched his material and obtained details from eye witnesses. As a physician, Luke emphasizes the miracles and the merciful love of Jesus, which heals his children and welcomes all into his arms — especially the sinner, the outcast, the gentile. Luke shows us the compassion of Jesus, especially toward women and children. He gives prominence not only to the group of women who follow him from the beginning of his ministry, but he also  to Mary, from the Incarnation and the infancy narratives to his mention of her being present with the Apostles at Pentecost. His is the only Gospel to give an account of the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. Luke’s gospel is noted for its praise and thanksgiving and is a very poetic book. For example, Mary’s song, 1:46-55. Song of Zacharias, 1:68-79, and The Song of the Angels, 2:8-14. Finally, Luke’s is the gospel of Jesus praying, and his parables concerning prayer.

St. Luke 2

As a physician, St. Luke is the patron saint of the medical profession. He is also the patron of artists and painters, as tradition holds that he painted an icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary. St. Luke is symbolized by the ox, The ox, recognized as the animal of sacrifice, was applied to St. Luke because his Gospel emphasizes the atonement made by Christ’s sacrifice of himself on the Cross.

PASSAGES ON THE DIVINE WILL AND THE GOSPELS 

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

 lUISA pICTURE

 

Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta, The Little Daughter of the Divine Will:

 VOLUME 23

January 18, 1928

How the Virgin is isolated in Her glory, and how She awaits the cortege of the other queens, so as to have Her retinue. How the works of God hold hands among themselves.  How the manifestations on the Divine Will will be the Gospel of His Kingdom.  The issue about the writings.  Necessity of the first Priests of the Kingdom of the Fiat.

 I was continuing the acts in the Divine Will, and I said to myself: “Oh! how I would like to enclose myself in the Prime Act of God, in order to do everything with one single act, so as to be able to give to my Creator all the love, all the glory, His very Beatitudes and infinite Joys, to be able to love Him and glorify Him as He glorifies and loves Himself.  What would I not give Him if I were present in that Prime Act of the Divine Fiat?  I would lack nothing to make my Creator happy with His own Happiness.” 

And seeing myself impotent, I was praying my Sovereign Mama to come to my help and to enclose me with Her maternal hands in that Prime Act in which She had had Her perennial dwelling, because, since She lived in the Divine Will, the Prime Act of God was hers, and therefore She could give Him whatever She wanted. But while I was thinking about this, I said to myself: “How much nonsense I am speaking.” 

But my lovable Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, the Queen of Heaven, in Her glory and greatness, is as though isolated.  In fact, She alone having lived in the Prime Act of God—that is, in the fullness and totality of the Divine Volition—She is the isolated Queen; She does not have the cortege of other queens who surround Her and match Her in the glory and greatness that She possesses.  She finds Herself in the conditions of a queen who is surrounded by damsels, by pageboys, by faithful friends who give Her honor and keep Her company; however, no other queen, equal to Her, gives Her the great honor of surrounding Her and of keeping Her company. 

“What would be a greater honor for a queen of the earth: to be surrounded by other queens equal to Her, or by people inferior in condition, in glory, in greatness and in beauty?  There is such distance in honor and in glory between one who is surrounded by queens and one who is surrounded only by other people, that no parallel can be compared to it.   

“Now, the Celestial Mama wants, desires—awaits the Kingdom of the Divine Will upon earth, in which there will be the souls who, by living in It, will form their life in the Prime Act of God, and will acquire the royalty and the right of queens. All will see, impressed in them, an indelible character that they are the daughters of the Divine King, and, as daughters, to them is due the title and the right of queens.  These souls will have their dwelling in the Divine Royal Palace, therefore they will acquire nobility of manners, of works, of steps, of words; they will possess such science, that no one will be able to equal them; they will be invested with such light, that the light itself will announce to all that here is a queen who has lived in the Royal Palace of My Will. 

“And so, the Sovereign Queen will no longer be alone on Her royal throne; She will have the other queens who will surround Her; Her beauty will be reflected in them; Her glory and greatness will find the ones in whom it can pour itself. Oh! how honored and glorified She will feel.  Therefore, She desires those who want to live in the Divine Fiat, in order to Herself form the queens in the Prime Act of It, so as to be able to have, in the Celestial Fatherland, the retinue of the other queens who will surround Her and will give Her the honors due to Her.”

After this, I was thinking:  “What will be the utility of these writings on the Divine Will?” 

And my highest and only Good, Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, all of My works hold hands, and this is the sign that they are My works—that one does not oppose the other; on the contrary, they are so bound among themselves, that they sustain one another.  This is so true that, having to form My chosen people, from which and within which the future Messiah was to be born, from that same people I formed the Priesthood, that instructed the people and prepared them for the great good of Redemption.  I gave them laws, manifestations and inspirations, upon which the Sacred Scriptures were formed, called the Bible; and all were intent on the study of It. 

“Then, with My coming upon earth, I did not destroy Sacred Scriptures; on the contrary, I supported them; and My Gospel, that I announced, opposed them in nothing; on the contrary, they sustained each other in a admirable way. And in forming the new nascent Church, I formed the new Priesthood, that does not detach itself either from Sacred Scriptures or from the Gospel.  All are intent upon them in order to instruct the peoples; and it can be said that anyone who did not want to draw from this salutary fount does not belong to Me, because these are the basis of My Church and the very life with which the peoples are formed.

“Now, what I manifest on My Divine Will, and that you write, can be called ‘The Gospel of the Kingdom of the Divine Will.’ In nothing does It oppose either Sacred Scriptures or the Gospel that I announced while being on earth; on the contrary, It can be called the support of one and of the other.  And this is why I allow and I call Priests to come—to read the Gospel, all of Heaven, of the Kingdom of My Divine Fiat, so as to say, as I said to the Apostles:  ‘Preach It throughout the whole world.’  In fact, in My works I make use of the Priesthood; and just as I had the Priesthood before My coming in order to prepare the people, and the Priesthood of My Church in order to confirm My coming and everything I did and said, so will I have the Priesthood of the Kingdom of My Will. 

“Here is the utility of the many things I have manifested to you, the many surprising truths, the promises of the so many goods that I must give to the children of the Fiat Voluntas Tua:  they will be the Gospel, the basis, the inexhaustible fount from which all will draw the Celestial life, the terrestrial happiness and the restoration of their Creation.  Oh! how happy they will feel—those who, with yearning, will drink in large gulps from these founts of My knowledges; because they contain the virtue of bringing the life of Heaven, and of banishing any unhappiness.”

Then, in hearing this, I was thinking to myself about the big issue concerning the writings on the Divine Will, that are in Messina, brought there by the blessed memory of venerable Father Di Francia: how myself and my other superiors absolutely want them here, while the superiors in Messina, rigorously recommended by the venerable Father before dying, want to keep them over there, for their publication when God pleases.  So, we do nothing but [send] letters of fire, back and forth—them, to keep them, and us, to get them back. 

And I was feeling all worried, bored and tired, and was saying to myself: “How could Good Jesus allow all this?  Who knows whether He too feels disappointed?” 

And He, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, you are worried, but I am not disappointed at all; on the contrary I enjoy in seeing the interest that Priests take in these Writings that will form the Kingdom of My Will.  This means that they appreciate the great good of them, and each one would want to keep such a great treasure with himself, to be the first to communicate it to others.  And while the issue of who is going to win lasts, one approaches the other in order to consult one another on what to do.  And I enjoy that more of My Ministers get to know that there is this treasure so great, of making known the Kingdom of My Divine Will; and I use this to form the first Priests of My coming Kingdom of My Fiat. 

“My daughter, it is a great necessity to form the first Priests; they will serve Me like the Apostles served Me to form My Church; and the ones who will occupy themselves with these Writings in order to publish them, putting them out to print them—to make them known, will be the new evangelists of the Kingdom of My Supreme Will. And just as the ones who are most mentioned in My Gospel are the four Evangelists who wrote It, to their highest honor and My Glory, so it will be for those who will occupy themselves with writing the knowledges on My Will in order to publish them.  Like new evangelists, there will be greater mention of them in the Kingdom of My Will, to their highest honor and My great Glory in seeing the order of the creature, the life of Heaven on earth—the only purpose of Creation—return into My bosom. 

“Therefore, in these circumstances I expand the circle, and, like a fisherman, I catch those who must serve Me for a Kingdom so holy. Therefore, let Me do, and do not be worried.”
