10/18 Feast Day of St. Luke the Evangelist
In order to find the Divinity, one must operate united with the Humanity of Christ and with His very Will.
Continuing in my usual state, blessed Jesus came for just a little and told me: “My daughter, it is necessary to operate through the veil of the Humanity of Christ in order to find the Divinity – that is, to operate united with His Humanity, with the very Will of Christ, as if His Will and that of the soul were one, in order to please Him alone; operating with His very ways, directing everything to Christ, calling Him in everything the soul does, as if He Himself were to do her very actions. By doing this, the soul finds herself in continuous contact with God. In fact, for Christ, His Humanity was nothing other than a sort of veil that covered the Divinity; therefore, by operating in the midst of these veils, she already finds herself with God. One who does not want to operate through His Most Holy Humanity and wants to find Christ, is like one who wants to find the fruit without finding the skin – it is impossible.”
Along with St. Matthew, St. Luke offers the events before the birth of Jesus as well as episodes from His childhood (the two other Evangelists, St. Mark and St. John, begin their Gospels with Christ’s public ministry).
St. Luke was most likely a Gentile doctor who accompanied St. Paul on numerous missions, notably to Greece, Macedonia, and Jerusalem. The Gospel according to St. Luke was written in the latter part of the 1st century A.D. in idiomatic Greek and with Gentile readers in mind. None of this explains why the book contains such treasures for the reader and the artist.
There are two Annunciations in St. Luke; the Angel Gabriel comes to Elizabeth first and then to Mary. In Luke we hear for the first time the great hymns which will inspire mankind with hope: the Ave Marie and the Magnificat. In Luke we find out why Jesus of Nazareth was born in Bethlehem. In Luke, the Angels of the Lord are awesome beings, striking fear and terror at first and then great joy. In short, there simply wouldn’t be a Christmas to celebrate without the events narrated in St. Luke’s goepel.
St. Luke is the patron saint of doctors and artists.
Book of Heaven – January 18, 1928
Necessity of the first priests of the Kingdom of the Fiat
… “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 which 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.”
