Day 1 – Tuesday August 30, 2016
V1 Now, during these exits that the Lord would make me do, sometimes He would renew the Promise of the Marriage, which I already mentioned. Who can tell the ardent yearnings that the Lord infused in me for this Mystical Marriage to take place? (…)
“The longed for day finally arrived, after not a little suffering. I remember that it was almost one year that I had been continuously in bed – it was the day of the Purity of Mary Most Holy. On the night before that day, my lover Jesus made Himself seen all festive. He drew near me, took my heart in His hands, and He looked at it over and over again; He dusted it, and then He gave it back to me. Then He took a Garment of Immense Beauty, whose background seemed to be a Surface of Gold streaked with Various Colors, and He Clothed me with that Garment. Then He took Two Gems, as if they were earrings, and He bejeweled my ears. Then He adorned my neck and my arms, and surrounded my forehead with a Crown of Immense Value, all enriched with precious stones and gems, all Refulgent with Light; and it seemed to me that those Lights were as many voices which resounded among themselves, speaking in clear notes of the Beauty, the Power, the Fortitude, and of all the other virtues of my Spouse Jesus. Who can tell what I comprehended, and in what sea of consolation my soul was swimming? It is impossible to say it.
Now, while He was Crowning my forehead, Jesus told me: “Most Sweet Spouse, I place this Crown upon you so that nothing may be missing in order to make you Worthy of being My Spouse; but then, after our Wedding is finished, I shall take it with Me to Heaven, to keep it for you at the moment of your death.” Finally, He took a Veil and covered me completely with it, from head to foot; and He left me in that way. Ah! it seemed to me that there was a Great Meaning in that Veil, because the demons, in seeing me all Covered with that Veil, were so frightened and had such fear of me, that they fled, terrified. The very Angels were around me with such Veneration, that I myself was confused and all Full of Blushing.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, please we pray that being one with Luisa; draw near us and take our hearts in Your Hands, look them over, dust them, and Adorn us as You Adorned Luisa, that we may, on behalf of All, be her true little children and Yours, Veiled in the Gift of the Divine Will, and that It be All for Your Glory and the Good of All souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen.
Day 2 – Wednesday August 31, 2016
V1 On the morning of the aforementioned day, Jesus made Himself seen again all Affable, Sweet and Majestic, together with His Most Holy Mother and Saint Catherine.
“Sometimes, carrying me with Him, Jesus would take me, Luisa to Paradise, and there I could listen to the Canticles of the Blessed, and I could see the Divinity, the different Choirs of Angels, the orders of the Saints, all Immersed in the Divinity of God – absorbed, identified with It. It seemed to me that there were many Lights around the Throne, which were more Brilliant than the sun; and these Lights displayed in clear notes all the Virtues and the Attributes of God. By reflecting themselves in one of these Lights, the Blessed would remain enraptured, in such a way that they could not arrive at penetrating the whole Immensity of that Light, therefore they would move to a second Light, without understanding all the depth of the first one. So, the Blessed in Heaven cannot comprehend God perfectly, because the Immensity, the Greatness, the Sanctity of God is such, that a created mind cannot comprehend an Uncreated Being. Now, it seemed to me that by reflecting themselves in these Lights, the Blessed would come to participate in the Virtues of these Lights. Therefore, in Heaven, the soul Resembles God – with this difference: that God is that Immense Sun, while the soul is a little sun. But who can say all that can be understood in that Blessed Dwelling? It is impossible to do it while the soul is in this prison of the body; while one can feel something in the mind, the lips do not find the terms to express it. It seems to me that it is like a child who begins to babble: he would like to say many upon many things, but in the end he remains without being able to say even one clear word. Therefore I stop here, without going any further. I shall just say that sometimes, while finding myself in that Blessed Fatherland, I would be strolling together with Jesus in the midst of the Choirs of Angels and the Saints; and since I was Newly-Espoused, all the Blessed would Unite Together to participate in the Joys of our Marriage. It seemed to me that they would forget their own contentments to occupy themselves with ours; and sometimes Jesus would show me to the Saints, saying to them: “See this soul – she is a Triumph of My Love; My Love has Surpassed Everything in her.”
Other times, then, He would make me stay at the place which was going to be mine, and He would say to me: “Here is your place – no one can take it away from you.” And at times I would reach the point of believing that I was no longer going to come back to earth; but in one simple instant I would find myself locked up in the wall of this body.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, we being Luisa’s true little children, Reflect ourselves in her in order to Receive the Same Effects, and may we participate in the Joys of Your Marriage as with Luisa, so that, we too may be the Triumph of Your Love. Let us, on behalf of All, receive the Gift of Living in the Divine Will, that It be for Your Glory and the Good of All souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen
Day 3 – Thursday September 1, 2016
V4–11.20.00 How she sees the Divinity of Jesus.
“While I am outside of myself, my Adorable Jesus continues to show me my heart inside of His – but so Transformed, that I can no longer recognize which one is mine and which one is Jesus’. He has conformed it perfectly to His Own; He has Impressed on it all the Insignia of the Passion, making me understand that, from the moment of His Conception His Heart was Conceived with these Insignia of the Passion; So Much So, that what He Suffered at the end of His Life was an Outpouring of that which His Heart had Suffered continuously. I seemed to see one just like the other. I seemed to see my Beloved Jesus occupied with preparing the place in which He was to put the heart, perfuming it and Bejeweling it with many different Flowers. And while He was doing this, He told me: “My beloved, since you Must Live from My Heart, it is appropriate for you to undertake a More Perfect Way of Living. Therefore, from you I Want:
1. Perfect Conformity to My Will, because you shall only be able to Love Me Perfectly if you Love Me with My Own Will. Even More, I tell you that by Loving Me with My Own Will, you shall arrive at Loving Me, and your neighbor, with My Same Way of Loving.
2. Profound Humility, placing yourself, in front of Me and of creatures, as the last among all.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, we pray You to transform our hearts one with Luisa, and conform them perfectly to Your own. As her little children, Impress the Insignia of the Passion as Much as Possible, that we may undertake this More Perfect Way of Living, that is, in Your Divine Will, Loving You and our neighbor with Your Love, with Profound Humility, as the last among all. May we, on behalf of all, receive this Gift of Living in the Divine Will, that It be for Your Glory and the Good of All souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen.
Day 4 – Friday September 2, 2016
V4–11.20.00 How she sees the Divinity of Jesus (Continued)
3. Purity in Everything, because any slightest fault against Purity, both in Loving and in Operating, is Reflected all in the heart, and it remains stained. Therefore I Want Purity to be like dew upon the flowers at the rising of the sun, which, its rays reflecting upon them, transmutes those little drops into as many precious pearls, such as to enchant the people. In the Same Way, if all your works, thoughts and words, heartbeats and affections, desires and inclinations, are Adorned with the Celestial Dew of Purity, you shall weave a Sweet Enchantment, not only for the human eye, but for the Whole of Heaven.
4. Obedience, which Must be connected with My Will, because if this virtue regards the superiors I have given you on earth, My Will is Obedience which regards Me directly; So Much So, that it can be said that both one and the other are virtues of Obedience – with this difference alone: one regards God, and the other regards men. However, both of them have the same value, and one cannot be without the other; therefore you Must Love both one and the other in the Same Way.”
Then He added: “Know that from now on you shall Live with My Heart, and you Must see things the Way My Heart does, that I may find My Satisfactions in you. Therefore be careful, for this is no longer your heart, but Mine.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, being one with Luisa, that like her, we too may be Pure in Everything, in Loving and Operating; that all our works, thoughts and words, heartbeats and affections, desires and inclinations be Adorned with the Celestial Dew of Purity. May we Possess, through Luisa, the virtue of Obedience, connected with Your Holy Will, in regards to the superiors You have given us because this regards You directly. May You find Your Satisfactions in us, one with Luisa, as we pray on behalf of All, to Receive the Gift of Living In the Divine Will, that It be for Your Glory and the Good of all souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen
Day 5 – Saturday September 3, 2016
V20–1.13.27 Jesus prays her to write. How His Word is happiness. How the one who Lives in the Divine Will is looked upon as one from the Celestial Fatherland. She prays Together with the whole Creation; how Jesus promises her that everything shall be Granted to her.
“To My little daughter who takes to heart So Much the Rights of My Divine Fiat, and who makes use of Its very Power in order to breach her way over My Heart, Everything shall be Granted. How not to content you, My daughter? To you Everything shall be Given; even more, We shall adjust together what regards My Will and what regards the creatures. Aren’t you happy? “Look, My daughter—from the moment My Will went out into the field in Creation, It has always been firm and unshakeable in doing Good, in spite of the many volatilities of creatures and the offenses. Triumphing of Everything, It has followed Its Course of always, always doing Good. See, in order to make the creature ascend again into the Firmness, into the Perennial Good, into the unshakeability of My Will, I want to Establish My Kingdom in their midst. See then, in what point I have placed you—in the Firmness and unshakeability of the Fiat, so as to allow you to lay this Kingdom of Mine within It. And just as My Will Triumphs of everything with Its Firmness, so shall you Triumph of everything with Its Firmness and in the unshakeability of Its Acts, and you shall Reorder the Divine Order between the two wills—the Divine Will shall be Reintegrated in Its Glory, and the human will shall place itself again in the Order Established by God.”
“My daughter, in order to Live in My Will, the soul must Ascend; and in order to Ascend in It, she must leave what does not belong to My Will. She must leave her miserable rags, her vulgar habits, her vile foods, her miseries. Everything she must leave, to make use of Royal Garments, of Divine Habits, of Precious and Nourishing Foods, of Infinite Riches—in sum, of Everything that belongs to My Will. What you have written serves you for now, it serves the Kingdom of the Supreme Fiat; then it shall be the Rule for those who Must Live in It—how they Must make use of All the Operating Acts of My Will in order to maintain themselves within the boundaries of My Kingdom. Therefore, what to you does not seem to be necessary, Is Necessary for the Formation of My Supreme Kingdom.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, being one with Luisa, who takes to heart So Much the Rights of Your Divine Fiat, making use of Its very Power in order to breach her way over Your Heart, that You may say to us through her, everything shall be Granted. In us her little children, may Luisa Triumph with the firmness and unshakeability of the Divine Acts by reordering our human wills with the Divine Will. Let us Ascend by leaving all that does not belong to Your Holy Will, our miserable rags, our vulgar habits, our file foods and miseries. Let us, through Luisa, make use of Royal Garments, Divine Habits, Precious and Nourishing Foods, Infinite Riches, Everything that belongs to Your Will. May Luisa’s Writings be our Rule; may we make use of All the Operating Acts of Your Will to maintain ourselves within the boundaries of Your Kingdom, as we pray on behalf of All, to receive the Gift of Living in the Divine Will, that It be for Your Glory and the Good of All souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen.
Day 6 – Sunday September 4, 2016
V13–12.5.21 The gift of the Divine Will was given to Luisa from the time of the Renewal of Mystical Marriage before the Holy Trinity, thirty-two years before.
‘Tell me, my Life, who is my Family? What is my dowry and Yours?’ And smiling, He continued: “Your Family is the Trinity. Don’t you remember that in the first years of bed I took you to Heaven and we Celebrated Our Union before the Most Holy Trinity? It Endowed you with Such Gifts that you yourself have not yet Known; and as I speak to you about My Will, about Its Effects and Value, I Make you Discover the Gifts with which, from that time, you were Endowed. I do not speak to you about My Dowry, because what is Mine is yours. And then, after a few days, We, the Three Divine Persons, Descended from Heaven, took Possession of your heart Luisa, and Formed Our Perpetual Residence in it. We took the Reins of your intelligence, of your heart, and of all of yourself; and everything you did was an Outpouring of Our Creative Will over you, and the Confirmation that your human will was animated by an Eternal Will.
The Work is Already Done. There is nothing left but to make It Known, so that, not only you, but others also may Take Part in these Great Goods. And this I AM Doing by Calling now one minister, now another, and even ministers from places afar, to make Known to them these Great Truths. Therefore, This Thing is Mine – not yours; so, let Me Do. Even more, You Must Know that every time you Manifest one additional Value of My Will, I feel So Much Contentment that I Love you with Multiplied Love.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, being one with Luisa, let us Celebrate with You this Union in which the Most Holy Trinity, Endowed her with the Gift of Living in Your Will. Take Possession of our hearts and Form Your Perpetual Residence in us her little children. Take the Reins of our intelligence, of our hearts, of all ourselves and let Everything we do be an Outpouring and Confirmation of Your Creative Will in us, that our human wills may be animated by an Eternal Will. Help us make the Great Truths of Your Divine Will Known as You call Your priests so that All may be for Your Contentment and Love us with Your Multiplied Love. We pray this on behalf of All that It be for Your Glory and the Good of all souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen.
Day 7 – Monday September 5, 2016
V20–11.6.26 Jesus promises to bring Luisa to Heaven when He has completed His Manifestation. The New Apostles of the Fiat. How the one who Lives in It Centralizes the heavens, the sun and everything within herself.
(…) “My daughter, Courage, let Me finish to Manifest to you All that is Necessary, regarding the Kingdom of My Will, so that nothing may be missing in order to Form It in the midst of the human family. Then, after I have Completed Everything, I shall quickly Bring you into our Fatherland. Do you think you shall see the Full Triumph of the Kingdom of the Eternal Fiat before coming to Heaven? Its Full Triumph you shall see from Heaven. It shall happen to you as it happened to Me with the Kingdom of Redemption. I did everything that was needed; I formed the Foundation, I Gave the laws and the counsels which were needed; I Instituted the Sacraments, I left the Gospel as the Rule of their life, I suffered unheard-of pains unto death, but while being on earth, I saw little or almost nothing of the Fruits and of the carrying out of Redemption. After I did everything, having nothing left to do, I entrusted everything to the Apostles, that they might be the criers of the Kingdom of Redemption, so that the fruits of the works I did for the Kingdom of Redemption might come out.
The same shall happen for the Kingdom of the Supreme Fiat. We shall do It together, My daughter. Your pains, your long sacrifices, your incessant prayers that My Kingdom may come soon, and My Manifestations about It – I shall Unite Everything Together with Me and shall form the Foundations. Once I have Completed Everything, I shall Entrust My Kingdom to My priests, so that, like second Apostles of the Kingdom My Will, they may be the Criers of It.
Do you think that the coming of Father Di Francia, who shows So Much Interest and who has taken to heart the publication of what regards My Will, came by chance? No, no – I Myself Disposed it. It is a Providential Act of the Supreme Will that wants him as First Apostle of the Divine Fiat and Proclaimer of It. And since he happens to be the founder of an order, it is easier for him to approach Bishops, Priests and people, also within his own institute, in order to Proclaim the Kingdom of My Will. This is why I Assist him So Much and I give him Special Light, because in order to understand My Will it takes Great Graces – not little lights; it takes a Sun to comprehend a Divine, Holy and Eternal Will, as well as Great Disposition on the part of the one to whom this Office is Entrusted. And then, I Myself Disposed also the daily coming of the priest, in order to find soon the First Apostles of the Fiat of My Kingdom, that they might Proclaim that which regards My Eternal Will. Therefore, let Me finish first, so that after I have completed it, I may Entrust it to the New Apostles of My Will; and you shall be able to come to Heaven, to see from up there the Fruits of the Longed for Kingdom of the Eternal Fiat.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, as promised, You Manifested all that is Necessary regarding the Kingdom of Your Will and brought Luisa into Your Fatherland. Being one with Luisa in our pains, long sacrifices, incessant prayers, that Your Kingdom may Come Soon. Entrust Your Kingdom to Your priests who are the Criers of It. In a Providential Act of the Supreme Will You Wanted St. Annibale Di Francia as First Apostle of the Divine Fiat and Proclaimer of It; we pray, one with Luisa and through St. Annibale, for Great Graces, a Sun to comprehend the Divine, Holy and Eternal Will as well as great Disposition for Your priests whom You have Entrusted the Office of First Apostles of the Fiat of Your Kingdom. May they Proclaim All that regards Your Eternal Will. Let your priests being one with Luisa, the New Apostles of Your Holy Will, the Fruits of the Longed for Kingdom, as we pray this on behalf of All that It be for Your Glory and the Good of All souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen.
Day 8 – Tuesday September 6, 2016
V27–11.14.29 How the Rights of Creation are just and Holy. Example of the sun, and how the one who Lives in the Divine Will is the True Sun.
I am always in my dear Inheritance of the Divine Fiat. The deeper I remain in It, the More I feel like Loving It; the More I Move within It, the More It Unveils Itself—the More It Makes Itself Known, and says to me: “Live Always in your Precious Inheritance, that was Given to you with So Much Love. It is yours—It shall always be yours, Inseparable from you; nor shall I ever permit that My little daughter not feel the heartbeat of My Light, the breath of My balsamic Air, the Life of My Divine Will.”
(…)“Now, My daughter, the one who Lives in My Divine Will Possesses the Rights of her creation, and therefore, More than sun, she Lives in the Unity of her Creator; she is the Reproducer of the Effects of the Divine Unity. In this Unity she Gathers Everything, Embraces Everyone, Warms Everyone, and with the Breath of the Divine Unity she Produces in the hearts of creatures All the Effects that are present in the Kingdom of Grace. But while, More than sun, she Plays in Touching Everything, with her Touches she Gives Sanctity, Virtue, Love, Sweetness, that are Divine; she would Want to Enclose Everyone in the Unity of her Creator.
“But while she Wants to Give Everything, Jealous, she preserves for herself the Rights of her creation—that is, the Will of her Creator as her First Act and the Origin of her creation; and she says to All: ‘I cannot descend from within the Divine Fiat, nor do I Want to lose even one drop of It—I would lose my Rights, that I do not want to do. Rather, come up, all of you, and one shall be the Will of All; in this way we shall Live Common Life. But for as long as you remain at the low level of the human will, like sun, I shall Give you the Effects of the Divine Will; however, Its Life shall be Always Mine, praying and waiting for all of you in the Will of our Creator.’
“The one who Lives in My Will is the True Sun that is such that apparently one sees nothing but Light and feels nothing but heat, but how many goods are there not inside that light and heat? How many effects? The life and the goods of the earth are enclosed inside that light and heat. In the same way, with the one who Lives in My Divine Fiat, apparently one sees a creature, but Inside there is a Divine Will that sustains Everything—Heaven and earth, and does not want to keep inactive she who Possesses such a Great Good.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, being one with Your little daughter Luisa and feel the heartbeat of Your Light, the breath of Your balsamic Air, the Life of Your Divine Will. Luisa is the one who Possesses the Rights of her creation, and, More than sun, she Lives in the Unity of her Creator as Reproducer of the Effects of the Divine Unity. May her little children, rise up in the Divine Will so that Your Will shall be the Will of All. May All Live the Common Life in the Will of our Creator, one with Luisa, True Sun, the one who Sustains Everything – Heaven and earth. We pray this on behalf of All that It be for Your Glory and the Good of All souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven Amen.
Day 9 – Wednesday September 7, 2016
V1 Jesus made me understand that He wanted to Renew the Marriage – not on earth, as the First Time, but in Heaven, in the Presence of the whole Celestial Court, and that I should remain Prepared for a Grace So Great.
“One morning – it was the eve of the Nativity of Mary Most Holy – my always benign Jesus Himself came to dispose me… on that morning, in order to dispose my heart More, Jesus spoke about the annihilation of myself… While my soul was Exciting itself with Ardent Yearnings for Receiving the Grace that Jesus Himself Wanted to Give me, Jesus came back and Transported me outside of myself, up to Paradise. And there, in the Presence of the Most Holy Trinity and of All the Celestial Court, He Renewed the Marriage. Jesus put out the Ring Adorned with Three Precious Stones, white, red and green, and He gave it to the Father, who Blessed it and gave it back to the Son again. The Holy Spirit took my right hand and Jesus placed the Ring on my ring finger. Then I was admitted to the Kiss of All the Three Divine Persons, and Each of Them Blessed me. Who can tell my confusion when I found myself before the Most Holy Trinity? I shall just say that as soon as I found myself in Their Presence, I fell flat to the ground, and I would have remained there if it wasn’t for Jesus, who encouraged me to go into Their Presence, So Much was the Light, the Sanctity of God. I am only saying this; the other things I shall leave out, because I remember them confusedly. After this, I remember that a few days passed and I received Communion. I lost consciousness, and I saw, Present before me, the Most Holy Trinity whom I had seen in Heaven. I immediately prostrated myself at Their Presence, I Adored Them, I Confessed my nothingness. I remember that I felt so plunged within myself that I did not dare to utter a single word, when a Voice came from Their Midst and said: “Do not fear, pluck up Courage, We have come to Confirm you as Our own, and to Take Possession of your heart.” While this Voice was saying this, I saw that the Most Holy Trinity Descended into my heart and took Possession of it – and there, They Formed Their Dwelling. Who can tell the Change that occurred in me? I felt Divinized; it was no longer I who lived, but They were Living in me. It seemed to me that my body was like a Residence, and that the Living God was Residing in it, because I could Feel, Sensibly, Their Real Presence in my interior. I could hear Their Voice Clearly, coming from within my interior and Resounding at the ears of my body. It happened precisely as when there are people speaking inside a room, and their voices can be heard, Clearly and Distinctly, also outside.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ, being one with Luisa we Excit ourselves with Ardent Yearnings and Receive the Grace that You Yourself Want to Give us; may we Receive the Gift of Living In the Divine Will, as Luisa did in the Renewal of the Marriage in the Presence of the Three Divine Persons. Your Light, Your Sanctity is So Much, that if not for being one with our little mama Luisa and encouraged by You Jesus, we could never Raise ourselves from the ground to Receive such a Grace. Therefore, one with Luisa, we prostrate before You, Triune God; we confess our nothingness, and pray You to confirm us as Your Own; Take Possession of our hearts, Descend into them, Form Your Dwelling and Live in us, the little children of the little mama Luisa and Yours’. Let us Feel Sensibly Your Real Presence, let us Hear Your Voice Clearly, as we pray this on behalf of All that It be for Your Glory and the Good of All souls, past, present and future, as we pray for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen.
Thursday, – September 8, 2016
BIRTHDAY OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
The day Luisa received the Gift of Living in the Divine Will
V18-12.25.25 The Dispositions are Needed in order to Possess the Gift of the Divine Will. Similes of It. The Living in Supreme Volition is the Greatest Thing, it is to Live Divine Life, and the soul Operates in the Unity of the Eternal Light.
‘So, the Living in the Will of God is to Possess the Will of God, and this is a Gift. Therefore, if the Goodness of God does not condescend to Give It, what can the poor creature do?’ At that moment, my lovable Jesus moved in my interior, as though Clasping me all to Himself, and told me: “My daughter, it is True that the Living in My Will is a Gift, and It is to Possess the Greatest Gift; but this Gift – which contains Infinite Value, which is Currency that Arises at Each Instant, which is Light that Never goes out, which is sun that Never sets, which Puts the soul in her Place, Established by God in the Divine Order, and therefore she takes her Place of Honor and of Sovereignty in the Creation – is Given but to the one who is Disposed, to the one who shall not waste it, to the one who shall Esteem It So Much and Love It More than his own life; Even More, he Must be Ready to Sacrifice his own life so that this Gift of My Will may have Supremacy Over Everything, and be held as more than life itself – even more, his life be nothing compared to It. Therefore, First I Want to see that the soul Really Wants to do My Will and Never her own, that she is Ready to Make Any Sacrifice in order to do Mine, and that in Everything she does, she Always Asks Me for the Gift of My Will, even just as a loan. Then, when I see that she does Nothing without the loan of My Will, I Give it as Gift, because by Asking for It Over and Over Again, she has Formed the Void within her soul, in which to Place this Celestial Gift; and by becoming used to living with the loan of this divine food, she has lost the taste for her own will, her palate has been Ennobled and shall no longer adapt itself to the vile foods of her own self. Therefore, in Seeing herself in Possession of that Gift which she Longed for, Yearned for, and Loved So Much, she shall Live of the Life of that Gift, she shall Love It, and shall Give It the Esteem It Deserves. (…) Therefore, Knowledge of It is like the Herald of the Gift of My Will which I Want to Give to the creature. Knowledge Prepares the Way; Knowledge is like the Contract I Want to Make of the Gift I Want to Give; and the More Knowledge I Send to the soul, the more she is spurred on to desire the gift and to solicit the Divine Writer to place the final signature – that the Gift is hers and she Possesses It. So, the Sign that in these times I Want to Give this Gift of My Will is the Knowledge of It. Therefore, be Attentive not to let Anything Escape you of what I Manifest to you about My Will, if you Want Me to Place the Final Signature on the Gift which I Yearn to Give to creatures.”
Prayer – O Lord, Jesus Christ being one with Luisa, and Want to receive the Gift of Living in the Divine Will, the Greatest Gift. Being one with Luisa, may You find us Disposed, not wasting this Gift, but Esteeming It and Loving It more than our own life. One with Luisa we are ready to sacrifice our lives so that this Gift of Your Will may have Supremacy over Everything, and be held more than our human life itself. Give us, the little children of little mama Luisa, the Grace we Need to do nothing without the Loan of Your Divine Will, that we may Receive the Gift of the Divine Will. We Long for It, we Yearn for Its, we Love this Gift of the Most Holy Divine Will. We pray to not let anything escape us of what You have Manifested to Luisa in the Book of Heaven. We Implore You, one with Luisa, to place the Final Signature on this Gift which You, Lord, Yearn to Give us, as we pray on behalf of All that It be for Your Glory and the Good of All souls, past, present and future, praying for Your Kingdom to Come on earth as it is in Heaven! Amen.
