From Volume 24; June 12, 1928:
…And my Beloved Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, the True Marriage with humanity was done in Creation. Nothing was lacking, either to the soul or to the body; everything was done with Royal Sumptuousness. An Immense Palace was prepared for the human nature, such that no king or emperor can have one similar to it, which is the whole Universe: a starry heaven and its vault, a sun whose Light would never be extinguished; Flourishing Gardens in which the Happy couple, God and man, would stroll, amuse itself and maintain the continuous, uninterrupted Feast of our Marriage; and Garments, woven not with matter, but formed of Purest Light by Our Power, as befitted royal persons…”
And from Meditation 6 of the Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will:
…Then will I (Blessed Mother) take on the commitment of forming the Marriage between you and the Fiat; and acting as your True Mother, I will bind the Marriage by giving you the very Life of My Son as Dowry, and My Maternity and all My Virtues as Gift…
The Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will on earth. Queen of Families, Queen of Miracles. Bond of Marriage between the Fiat and the Creature. The Wedding of Cana.
The soul to her Celestial Mother:
Holy Mama, here I am together with You and with Sweet Jesus, to be present at a New Wedding, to see Its Prodigies and comprehend Its Great Mystery, and the extent of Your Maternal Love for me and for all. O please! Mother of mine, take my hand in Yours, place me on Your knees, invest me with Your Love, purify my intelligence, and tell me why You wanted to be present at this wedding.
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
My dearest daughter, My Heart is swollen with Love, and I felt the need to tell you the reason why, together with My Son Jesus, I wanted to be present at this wedding of Cana. Do you think it was because of a simple ceremony? No, daughter, there are Profound Mysteries. Pay attention to Me, and I will tell you New things, and how My Love of Mother was displayed in an Incredible Manner, and the Love of My Son gave True Signs of Paternity and Royalty toward creatures.
Now listen to Me: My Son had come back from the desert, and was preparing Himself for His Public Life; but first He wanted to be present at this wedding, and therefore He allowed Himself to be invited. We went there, not to celebrate, but to work Great Things for the good of the human generations. My Son took the place of Father and King in the families, and I took the place of Mother and Queen. With Our Presence We Renewed the Sanctity, the Beauty, the Order of the Marriage formed by God in the Garden of Eden—that of Adam and Eve—Married by the Supreme Being in order to populate the earth, and to multiply and increase the future generations. Marriage is the substance from which the life of the generations arises; it can be called the trunk from which the earth is populated. The priests, the religious, are the branches; but if it were not for the trunk, not even the branches would have life. Therefore, through sin, by withdrawing from the Divine Will, Adam and Eve caused the family to lose Sanctity, Beauty and Order. And I, your Mama, the New Innocent Eve, together with My Son, went to Reorder that which God did in Eden; and I constituted Myself Queen of families, and impetrated the Grace that the Divine Fiat might Reign in them, to have families that would belong to Me, and I might hold the place of Queen in their midst.
But this is not all, my daughter. Our Love was Burning, and We wanted to make known to them how much We Loved them, and to give them the Most Sublime of Lessons. And here is how: at the height of the lunch, wine lacked, and My Heart of Mother felt consumed with Love, wanting to give help; and knowing that My Son can do anything, with supplicating accents, but certain that He would listen to Me, I say to Him: “My Son, the spouses have no more wine.” And He answers Me: “My hour to do miracles has not yet come.” And I, knowing that He certainly would not deny to Me what His Mama asked of Him, I say to those who are serving the table: “Do whatever My Son tells you, and you will have what you want; even more, you will receive in addition, and in Superabundance.”
My daughter, in these few words I gave a Lesson, the most useful, necessary and sublime for creatures. I spoke with the Heart of Mother and I said: “My children, do you want to be Holy? Do the Will of My Son. Do not move from what He tells you, and you will have His Likeness, His Sanctity in your power. Do you want all evils to cease? Do whatever My Son tells you. Do you want any Grace, even difficult? Do whatever He tells you and wants. Do you also want the necessary things of natural life? Do whatever My Son tells you; because in His Words, in everything He tells you and wants, He encloses such Power that, as He Speaks, His Word contains what you ask for, and makes the Graces that you want arise within your souls. How many see themselves as full of passions, weak, afflicted, misfortuned, miserable; yet, they pray and pray, but because they do not do what My Son tells, they obtain nothing; Heaven seems to be closed for them. This is a sorrow for your Mama, because I see that while they pray, they move away from the Source in which all Goods reside—that is, the Will of My Son.
Now, those who were serving did precisely what My Son told them—that is: “Fill the jars with water and bring them to the table.” My dear Jesus Blessed that water and it turned into delicious wine. O! A thousand times blessed, the one who does what He (Jesus) tells and wants! With this, My Son gave Me the Greatest Honor, He constituted Me Queen of Miracles; this is why He wanted My Union and My Prayer in doing His First Miracle. He Loved Me too much— so much that He wanted to give Me the First Place of Queen also in Miracles. And with facts, not with words, He said: “If you want Graces, Miracles, come to My Mother; I will never deny Her anything She wants.”
In addition to this, My daughter, with My Presence at this wedding, I looked at the future centuries, I saw the Kingdom of the Divine Will upon earth, I looked at families, and I impetrated for them that they might symbolize the Love of the Sacrosanct Trinity, so that Its Kingdom might be in Full Force. And with My Rights of Mother and Queen, I took to heart Its Regime; and Possessing the Source of It, I placed at the creatures’ disposal all the Graces, the Helps, the Sanctity, which are needed to Live in a Kingdom so Holy. And so I keep repeating: “Do whatever My Son tells you.”
My daughter, listen to Me: look for nothing else, if you want to have everything in your power, and give Me the contentment of being able to make of you My True Daughter, and Daughter of the Divine Will. Then will I (Blessed Mother) take on the commitment of forming the Marriage between you and the Fiat; and acting as your True Mother, I will bind the Marriage by giving you the very Life of My Son as Dowry, and My Maternity and all My Virtues as Gift.
Celestial Mama, how much I must thank You for the Great Love You have for me, and because, in everything You do, You always have a thought for me, and You prepare for me and give me such Graces, that Heaven and earth are moved and enraptured together with me; and we all say to You: “Thank You! Thank You!” O please! Holy Mama, engrave within my heart Your Holy Words: “Do whatever My Son tells you,” so as to generate in me the Life of the Divine Will, which I so much long for and desire. And You, Seal my will, that it may always be submitted to the Divine.
In all our actions, let us prick up our ears to listen to our Celestial Mama, who says to us: “Do whatever My Son tells you,” that we may do everything in order to fulfill the Divine Will.
Holy Mama, come into my soul, and do for me the Miracle of making me possessed by the Divine Will.
We (the little family of Luisa) will Joyfully Celebrate, in our own communities,
The Solemnity of Corpus Christi also as “our wedding day with the Lord”
because we are linked to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta
Volume 24 – 6/12/28
Since it was the Feast of Corpus Domini, I (Luisa) was thinking to myself that that day was The Feast of the Marriage that Blessed Jesus did with souls in the Most Holy Sacrament of Love.
“. . . In this state of sufferings I (Jesus) will purify your soul thoroughly, in such a way as to dispose you to form a Mystical Marriage with Me; and after this, I (Jesus) will make the Last Transformation, in such a way that both of us will become like two candles placed on the Fire – one is Transformed into the other and they form a Single One.”
Volume 36 – 5/17/38
Then He added with more Loving Tenderness:
“My good daughter (Luisa), My Love wants to be tied more and more to (you) the creature, and the more Truths It (My Divine Love) Manifests regarding My Most Holy Divine Will, the more bonds I (Jesus) put between God and herself.
In Manifesting the Truth, My Divine Love is preparing the Marriage between God and the soul.
The more It Manifests the more Pomp and Magnificence this Marriage will have.
Would you like to know what happens then?
My Truths will be like the dowry needed in order to marry God; to get to know the One (God) who lowers Himself and even ties Himself—only for Love—in the bond of Marriage.
My Truths touch the creature over and over; They mold her to a New Life;
They (My Truths) return her to the Beauty of Our Image and Resemblance from the time she was Created, and Impress on her Their kiss of inseparable Union.
Just one of Our Truths can make a Sea of Prodigies and Divine Creations in the soul who has the goodness to listen to It.
One Truth can turn a perverted world into a Good and Holy one, because It is one of Our Lives, exposed for the Good of all.
It is a New Sun that We raise in created intellects; a Sun that will let Itself be known through Its Light and Heat, turning into Light and Heat whoever wants to listen.
Therefore, hiding a Truth that We give from Our Paternal Womb, with so much Love, is the greatest crime. It deprives human generations of the Greatest Good.
Further, one (Luisa and those linked to Luisa) who Lives in Our Most Holy Divine Will, by Marrying Us (Triune God), makes a Feast for all Saints.
All of them participate in this Divine Wedding and, because of It, they have their own party in Heaven and another one on earth.
Each act the creature does in Our Most Holy Divine Will is a Feast; a table sumptuously decked for the Heavenly Regions.
In return, the Saints give New Gifts.
They beseech the Lord to Manifest more Truths to the soul (Luisa), to broaden more and more the boundaries of the dowry that God gave to her (and to those linked to her.”)
“When one is linked to Luisa, one will also possess the Mystical Marriage because of her”
From the Writings of
The Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta
The Little Daughter of the Divine Will
Feast of Corpus Christi
Fiat – In Voluntate Dei!
My good daughter in the Divine Volition,
Courage and trust. The Divine Will has found Its work in your soul, and when you suffer more, it seems that Jesus wants to hasten His work, to receive the contentment to see you as He wants and likes, and to be able to say: “My daughter is like Me, in the sufferings as much as in wanting what I Myself wanted – only the Will of the Celestial Father. How happy I am! It is true that you suffer, but I run to sustain you in My Arms, that you may feel My Strength and the Powerful Breath of My Will, which searches for the New Life I want in you, and converts all your pains into precious gems of love. And when I feel embittered, I run, I come to you, to be sweetened in your pains which carry the seal of My Divine Will, and to sweeten the bitternesses that, unfortunately, the other creatures give Me. Therefore, I recommend to you, My daughter: be patient, be My HOST, let Me come to be consecrated in you. But I do not want you as a dead HOST, but alive and speaking; and may your suffering be the lamp, always lit, which never extinguishes, and which loves Me incessantly.”
My blessed daughter, how good is Jesus! It seems that He reduces us to dust in order to give us New Life, and to find His own Life in us.
Feast of “Corpus Domini”
(Click here for more on the Feast of Corpus Christi)
Book of Heaven; Volume 24 – June 12, 1928
…it was the Feast of Corpus Domini, I was thinking to myself that this day was the feast of the marriage which blessed Jesus did with souls in the Most Holy Sacrament of love. And my beloved Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, the true marriage with humanity was done in Creation. Nothing was lacking either to the soul or to the body; everything was done with royal sumptuousness. An immense palace was prepared for the human nature, such that no king or emperor can have one similar to it, which is the whole Universe: a starry heaven and its vault, a Sun which would never extinguish its light; flourishing gardens in which the happy couple, God and man, was to stroll, amuse itself and maintain the continuous, uninterrupted feast of our marriage; and garments, woven not with matter, but formed of purest light by Our power, as befitted royal persons… Everything was beauty in man, soul and body, because the One who prepared the marriage and formed it was of unreachable beauty. So, from the external sumptuousness of the so many enchanting beauties present in the whole of Creation, you can imagine the interior seas of sanctity, of beauty, of light, of science, etc., which the interior of man possessed. All the acts of man, interior and external, were as many musical keys which formed the most beautiful melodies, sweet, melodious, harmonious, that maintained the joy of the marriage. And each additional act that he would dispose himself to do, was a new little sonata that he would prepare, to call his spouse to delight with him.
My Divine Will which dominated humanity, brought him the new continuous act and the likeness to the One who had created him and married him. But in such a great feast man broke the strongest bond, in which lay the whole validity of our marriage and through which it had been in force: he withdrew from Our Will. Because of this, the marriage was broken, and since all the rights were lost, only the memory of it was left, but the substance, the life, the effects no longer existed. Now, the Sacrament of the Eucharist in which my Love overabounded in all possible imaginable ways, cannot be called either the first or the true marriage of Creation, for I do nothing but continue what I did when I was on earth. According to the needs of souls, with some I make Myself a compassionate doctor in order to heal them, with some a teacher to instruct them, with some a father to forgive them, with some light to give them sight. I give strength to the weak, courage to the timid, peace to the restless – in sum, I continue my redemptive life and virtue; however, all these miseries exclude the true marriage. No young man marries a young woman who is ill – at most, he waits for her to recover; or a young woman who is weak and who offends him very often. And if the groom is a king and loves her, at most he waits for the bride to get well, to love him, and for her condition to become somehow satisfactory, and not so inferior to his. Now, the condition in which poor humanity finds itself is still that of a poor ill one, and I am waiting for my Will to be known and to reign in the midst of creatures, for It will give them true health, royal garments, and a beauty worthy of Me. Then will I form again the true and original marriage.”
