THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY’S SCEPTER OF COMMAND
The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will
Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta
The Little Daughter of the Divine Will
Day of The Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will takes the Scepter of Command, and the Most Holy Trinity constitutes Her Its Secretary
The souls to the Divine Secretary:
Queen Mama, here I am, prostrate at your feet. I feel that, as your child, I cannot be without my Celestial Mama; and even though today You come to me with the glory of your scepter of command and with the crown of Queen, yet You are always my Mama. So, though trembling, I fling myself into your arms, that You may heal the wounds which my bad will has made to my poor soul. Listen, my Sovereign Mama, if You do not make a prodigy – if You do not take your scepter of command in order to guide me and hold your empire over all my acts, so that my will may have no life – alas, I will not have the beautiful destiny of coming into the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
My dear child, come into the arms of your Mama, and pay attention in listening to Me: you will hear the unheard-of prodigies that the Divine Fiat worked in your Celestial Mama.
These six steps which the Divine Fiat took in Me symbolize the six days of Creation. Each day, by pronouncing a Fiat, it was as if God took a step, passing from the creation of one thing to another. On the sixth day, He took the final step, saying: “Fiat! Let Us make man in Our Image and Likeness”; and on the seventh day He rested in His works, as though wanting to enjoy everything He had created with such magnificence. And in His rest, looking at His works, God said: “How beautiful are my works! Everything is order and harmony!” Then, fixing upon man, in the ardor of His Love, He added: “But you are the most beautiful one! You are the crown of all Our works.”
Now, my conception surpassed all the prodigies of Creation, and therefore the Divinity wanted to take, with Its Fiat, six steps within Me. As I took possession of the Kingdom of the Divine Will, Its steps within Me ended, and Its full Life began, whole and perfect, within my soul. Oh, at what divine heights I was placed by the Most High! The heavens could neither reach Me nor contain Me. The light of the Sun was little before my light. No created thing could reach Me. I crossed the divine seas as if they were my own; my Celestial Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, longed for Me to be in Their arms, to enjoy Their little daughter. Oh, what contentment They felt in feeling that, as I loved Them, prayed to Them and adored Their Supreme Height, my love, my prayer and adoration, came out of my soul, from the center of the Divine Will. They felt, coming out from Me, waves of divine love, chaste fragrances and unusual joys, coming from within the Heaven which their own Divine Will had formed in my littleness – to the extent that They could not stop repeating: “All beautiful, all pure, all holy, is Our little daughter… Her words are chains that bind Us; Her gazes are darts that wound Us; Her heartbeats are arrows that, darting through Us, make Us go into a delirium of love!” They felt the Power, the Strength of their Divine Will coming out from Me, which rendered us inseparable; and They called Me “Our invincible daughter, who will obtain victory even over Our Divine Being.”
Now, listen to Me, my child; the Most Holy Trinity, taken by excess of love for Me, told me: “Our beloved daughter, Our Love cannot resist; It feels suffocated if We do not entrust to You Our secrets. Therefore We elect You Our faithful Secretary; to You We want to entrust Our sorrows and Our decrees: at any cost We want to save man – look how he goes toward the precipice! His rebellious will drags him continuously toward evil. Without the life, the strength and the support of Our Divine Will, he has deviated from the path of his Creator, and walks crawling on the earth – weak, ill, and full of all vices. But there are no other ways to save him – no other ways out, other than for the Eternal Word to descend, take his guise, his miseries, his sins upon Himself; become his brother, conquer him by dint of love and unheard-of pains, and give him so much confidence as to be able to bring him back again into Our paternal arms. Oh, how We grieve over the destiny of man! Our sorrow is great, nor could We confide it to anyone, because not having a Divine Will to dominate them, they could never comprehend either Our sorrow, or the grave evils of man fallen into sin. To You, who possess Our Fiat, is given the ability to comprehend it. Therefore, to You, as Our own Secretary, We want to unveil Our secrets, and place the scepter of command into your hands, that You may dominate and rule over all, and your dominion may conquer God and men, bringing them to Us as Our children, generated anew within your maternal Heart.”
Who can tell you, dear child, what my Heart felt at these divine words? A vein of intense sorrow opened in Me, and I committed Myself, even at the cost of my life, to conquering God and the creature, and to uniting them together.
Now, my child, listen to your Mama: I saw that you were surprised in hearing Me narrate the story of the possession, in the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Know that this destiny is given also to you: if you decide never to do your will, the Divine Will will form Its Heaven in your soul. You will feel the divine inseparability; the scepter of command over yourself, over your passions, will be given to you. You will no longer be slave to yourself, because the human will alone puts the poor creature into slavery, clips the wings of her love for the One who created her, and takes away from her the strength, the support and the confidence to fling herself into the arms of her Celestial Father – in such a way that she is unable to know either His secrets, or the great love with which He loves her, and so she lives like a stranger in the house of her Divine Father. What a distance the human will casts between Creator and creature!
Therefore, listen to Me – make Me content. Tell Me you will no longer give life to your will, and I will fill you completely with the Divine Will.
Holy Mama, help me; don’t You see how weak I am? Your beautiful lessons move me to tears, and I cry over my great misfortune of having fallen many times into the maze of doing my own will, detaching myself from that of my Creator. O please! be my Mama, do not leave me to myself. With your power, unite the Divine Will to mine; enclose me in your maternal Heart, in which I will be sure never to do my will.
Today, to honor Me, you will remain under my mantle, to learn to live under my gaze; and reciting three ‘Hail Marys’ to Me, you will pray Me to make everyone know the Divine Will.
Celestial Mama, enclose me in your Heart, that I may learn from You to live of Divine Will.
