THE GLORY THAT THE SOUL WILL RECEIVE IN HEAVEN

 THE GLORY THAT THE SOUL WILL RECEIVE IN HEAVEN

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 36 

June 12, 1938 

The Truth, Bearer of Divine Seeds. How Knowledge forms New Divine Lives.  The glory that the soul will receive in return, in Heaven.  One who lives abandoned in Jesus’s arms is His favorite.

 I am always returning to the Divine Volition. Its Immensity is such that while I am in the middle of Its ocean, trying in vain to embrace all Its Acts (since it takes centuries to do it, and still, they would not be enough to embrace all Its Acts), I seem to come back to my smallness. 

So, while I was wandering in the Fiat, my sweet Jesus, who needs the love of those who want to Live in His Will, told me: “My blessed daughter, it is only when I speak about My Will that My Love can find Peace, and that It calms down from Its anxiety and delirium. In the Word, in the Truth I Manifest, It finds sweet Rest, because It sees Its Love taking place in the creatures, in order to receive Love in return and form Its Life.  It is necessary to Manifest the Merits and the Goods contained in It in order to attract and enchant the creature to Live in It, otherwise they won’t move. 

“Now, you must know that every Knowledge I Manifest and every act done in my Will, thanks to this Knowledge, is like a Divine Seed acquired by the soul. This Seed will produce New Divine Science. O! how she will be able to speak the language of her Creator.  Every Truth will be a New Celestial Language with the virtue of being understandable to those who listen and want to receive this Divine Seed.  This Seed will produce New Life of Sanctity, New Love, New Goodness, New Joy and Happiness. These Seeds of Truth will be as many Divine Properties acquired by the soul.

“The Joy We receive when the soul operates in Our Will is such that We communicate It to all the Blessed. You must know that as many are the Divine Seeds that the soul acquires by Knowledge of My Fiat, so many more Degrees of Our Knowledge and Glory will We extend to her when, having finished her life down here, she will come to Our Heavenly Fatherland.  To each Knowledge acquired on earth will correspond a Double Knowledge of Our Supreme Entity in Our Celestial Residence.  To each Divine Seed a degree of Glory, Joy and Happiness.  Therefore, the Happiness, Joy and Glory of the Blessed will be in proportion to how much they will have known Us.  Consider, for example, a man who did not study different languages.  In hearing them being spoken, he will not understand a thing.  Moreover, he certainly could not be employed as a teacher of these languages to let him earn a higher salary.  He will only be able to teach the little he knows and earn little money. 

“In the same way, if men do not know Us on earth, they won’t make enough room in their souls to be able to receive all Our Joy and Happiness. Even if We desire to give it to them, it would just not fit, and they would not understand anything.  Therefore, the Glory of the Blessed will correspond to how many acts in Our Will they have done: Glory and Joy will be higher the more Knowledge they acquired.  This can make the Blessed reach such a height that all the Celestial Court will be amazed, because each additional Knowledge is a New Divine Life that the soul acquires, a Life with Infinite Goods and Joys. 

“Do you think it’s nothing for the souls to possess many of Our New Divine Lives as her own property? What we will not give of Joy, Happiness and Love, in return for these New Divine Lives that she possesses!  We long for Our children who will Live in Our Will, to make Ourselves known on earth, since It will be their Teacher of the New Sciences of their Creator and will make them Beautiful, Wise, Holy and Noble, according to the Knowledge acquired.  We await them in Our Celestial Court to inundate them with Our New Joys, Beauties and Happiness, that We haven’t been able to give until now.  And since in Heaven all the Blessed are bound together as a Family, Loving each other in a Perfect way, they will all participate in the Glory and Joy of these children; not as direct Glory and Joy, but in an indirect way, thanks to the bond of Love among themselves.  So, We want Our Will to be known on earth in order to show, from the depth of Our Divine Womb, New Infinite Joys and Happiness to those who Live in It.”

Then He added with Unspeakable Tenderness: “My good daughter, I Love creatures very much, but I feel more captured, won and attracted to Love the soul that Lives abandoned in My arms, as if she had nobody in the world—only her Jesus—trusting Me and Me only. If she is offered other kinds of support she refuses them, to have only the support of her Jesus who holds her tightly in His arms, defending her and taking care of her completely. These are the souls that I Love very, very much—My favorite ones.  I surround them with My Divine Power.  I build around them the wall of My Love.  Woe to those who touch them!  My Love will know how to defend them and My Power will know how to topple those who want to displease her. 

“The souls abandoned in Me, Live only of Me and I of them, as if We Lived on one Breath and one Love. If some human support arises, they look into it to see if I’m there, and if I’m not, they run away to find shelter in My arms.  Only these are the souls I can really trust, confide to them My Secrets, and lean on them as well.  I am certain that they do not get out of My Will because they are always with Me.  The one who doesn’t Live abandoned in Me, instead, runs away from My arms; she does not refuse human supports.  Rather, she gets a taste for them. She is inconstant.  One moment she looks for Me, another, for creatures.  She is forced to feel the disillusion from creatures that opens deep gashes in the soul, and she feels the earth in her heart—My Will as Life, far away from herself. 

“O, if everyone abandoned themselves in My arms! The earth would disappear for them, they wouldn’t pay attention to anybody, I would be enough for all.  I Love, so much, the one who Lives abandoned in My arms that I show her the Greatest Excesses of My Love, My Love jokes, My caresses. I reach the point of inventing New Love tricks to keep them busy and centered in My Love.  Therefore, Live abandoned in My arms and in everything you will find your Jesus defending, helping and sustaining you.”

THE VIGIL OF ALL SAINTS

 The Vigil of All Saints

In the eighth century the Gregorian Sacramentary indicated among the common Masses without a date:  The Mass in honor of All Saints.  Fixed in the following century on November 1, it became The Mass of All Saints Day that is now prepared for by that of a vigil.  Thus today is the Eve of All Saints, otherwise known as All Hallows Eve, that is Hallows Eve, or now more commonly,  Halloween.

How The Angels Are Around The Soul Who Does The Hours Of The Passion

HOW THE ANGELS ARE AROUND THE SOUL WHO DOES THE HOURS OF THE PASSION

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 11

October 13, 1916

How the Angels are around the soul who does the Hours of the Passion. These Hours are sweet little sips that souls give to Jesus.  

I was doing the Hours of the Passion, and blessed Jesus told me: “My daughter, in the course of my mortal Life, thousands and thousands of Angels were the cortege of my Humanity, gathering everything I did – my steps, my works, my words, and even my sighs, my pains, the drops of my Blood – in sum, everything. They were the Angels in charge of my custody, and of paying Me honor; obedient to my every wish, they would rise to and descend from Heaven, to bring to the Father what I was doing. Now these Angels have a special office, and as the soul remembers my Life, my Passion, my Blood, my wounds, my prayers, they come around this soul and gather her words, her prayers, her acts of compassion for Me, her tears and her offerings; they unite them to Mine, and they bring them before my Majesty to renew for Me the glory of my own Life. The delight of the Angels is so great that, reverent, they listen to what the soul says, and pray together with her. So, with what attention and respect must the soul do these Hours, thinking that the Angels hang upon her lips to repeat after her what she says.”

Then He added: “After the so many bitternesses that creatures give Me, these Hours are sweet little sips that souls give Me; but for the many bitter sips I receive, the sweet ones are too few. Therefore, more diffusion, more diffusion!”

Closing of The Diocesan Phase For Beatification of Luisa

 

 
Closing of the Diocesan Phase 

of the Cause of Beatification and Canonization
of the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta

October 29, 2005

On October 29, 2005, His Excellency Mons. Giovanni Battista Pichierri, Archbishop of Trani, Barletta-Biceglie and Titulary of Nazareth, in Corato, Italy, having completed the diocesan investigation (“inchiesta diocesana”) of her fame of sanctity with the compilation of testimonies and documents, remitted his definitive judgment on the sanctity of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta to the Holy Father.

 In a communiqué of 2008, the Archbishop of Trani, informed “that the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, in waiting to issue a decree on the legal validity of the diocesan investigation, has submitted the writings of the Servant of God for examination, to the two theological Censors, in conformity with the normative canon and the practice in force”.  Communique n. 2 (Prot.n.098/08/c3) regarding the process for Beatification and Canonization of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, Trani, May 30, 2008. Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

 The work of the theological Censors.

Before 1927, the writings of Luisa (the first 19 volumes and The Hours of the Passion), had already obtained the “Nihil Obstat” from the now Saint Annibale Maria Di Francia (Censor on behalf of the Archdiocese) and the Imprimatur of the then Archbishop Mons. Giuseppe M. Leo. In addition to this previous study, the Congregation for the Saints, conforming to the canonical normative and actual praxis establishes that the writings of a Servant of God should be submitted for examination by at least two theological Censors (whose names would remain secret); this should be completed before formally initiating the process at the level of the Holy See.

As this work on the writings had not taken place within the diocesan process, the Dicasterio ordered the completion of this requisite with the intention to be able to issue the decree on the legal validity of the diocesan investigation and in this manner initiate the Roman process. The theological Censors, named by the Church, must examine the writings and verify that there is nothing in them contrary to faith and tradition, and must also describe in their verdict the personality and the spirituality of the Servant of God.

The Holy Congregation for the Saints assigned this work to two theological Censors, asking their evaluation.

On June 11, 2010  it was announced that the first theologian appointed by the Holy See for the evaluation of the writings of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, had completed his assessment and officially rendered his verdict: POSITIVE. 

On July 23, 2010 Sister Assunta Marigliano, President of the Píous Association “Luisa Piccarreta – Little Daughter of the Divine Will” in Corato, Italy, who is also responsible for the promotion of the Cause for Beatification and Canonization of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, unofficially disclosed that the second theologian appointed by the Holy See for the evaluation of the writings of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, had completed his assessment and had officially rendered his verdict: POSITIVE.

THE MEANING OF THE BLESSING OF JESUS AND OF THE SIGN OF THE CROSS

Reflections on the Meaning of the Blessings 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 24 

July 29, 1928
Meaning of the blessing and of the sign of the cross. 
My days become more bitter and long because of the privation of my sweet Jesus. Hours are centuries, days never end; and while I do my usual rounds in the Creation, I want and invite everyone to cry for He who, flying away from me, leaves me alone and abandoned in my hard martyrdom of living as if I had no life, because He who formed my true life is no longer with me. 
And so, in my bitterness, I call the sun to cry tears of light to move Jesus to compassion, so that He would come back to His little exiled one. I call the wind to make tears of moans, of screams, and to deafen the hearing of Jesus with its mighty empire, so as to bend Him to come back.  I call the sea to my help, that it would convert all of its waters into tears, and murmuring tears and tumulting with its waves, it may make a tumult deep into His Divine Heart, so that He may quickly resolve to give me back His Life, my All.  But who can say all my nonsense?
I sought help from all, so that they would make Jesus come back to me. But He would not come; and I would continue my round in His adorable Will, and following all the Acts He did when He was on this earth, I paused when Jesus was blessing the children, blessing His Celestial Mama, blessing the crowds, and other things, and I prayed Jesus to bless this little daughter of His, who so much needed it. 
And He, moving in my interior and raising His arm in the act of blessing me, told me: “My daughter(Luisa), I bless you(Luisa) from the Heart in your soul and body—may My blessing be the confirmation of Our Likeness in you(Luisa).  My blessing confirms in you(Luisa) what the Divinity did in the creation of man—that is, Our Likeness. 
“You(Luisa) must know that during the course of My mortal Life, in everything I did, I always blessed. It was the first act of Creation that I called back upon creatures, and in order to confirm it, in blessing I invoked the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit.  The very Sacraments are animated by these blessings and invocations.  So, while calling the Likeness to the Creator within souls, My blessing calls also the life of My Divine Will, that It may return as in the beginning of Creation to reign in souls, because My Will alone has the virtue of painting in them, vividly, the Likeness of He who created them, of making it grow and of preserving it with the vivid Divine colors. 
“See then, what blessing means: confirmation of Our creative work, because the work We do once is so filled with wisdom, and with sublimity and beauty, that We love to repeat it always.  And if Our blessing is nothing other than the longing of Our Heart to see Our Image restored in creatures, as well as the repetition of Our confirmation of what We want to do, the sign of the cross that the Church teaches to the faithful is nothing other than impetrating Our Likeness on the part of creatures; and so, echoing Our blessing, they repeat: ‘In the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.’ Therefore, without knowing it, the Church and all the faithful harmonize with the Eternal Creator, and all want the same thing:  God, by blessing and pronouncing the words, ‘Father, Son and Holy Spirit,’ wants to give His Likeness; creatures impetrate it by making the sign of the cross, pronouncing the same words.”
