PASSAGES ON JESUS CALLS LUISA ‘THE LITTLE DAUGHTER OF MY WILL’ FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN
Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta,
The Little Daughter of the Divine Will:
March 23, 1921
The Divine Will renders the soul little. Luisa is the littlest of all.
As I was in my usual state, I found myself outside of myself together with Jesus, and I said to Him: “My Love, I want You to hear what I do to enter your Volition, to see whether you like it or not.’ So I said what I usually say when I enter His Will – which I don’t think it is necessary to repeat here, since I have said it somewhere else. And Jesus gave me a kiss, approving, with His kiss, of what I was saying to Him. Then He said to me: “My daughter, my Will has the special virtue of rendering souls little, making them become so little as to feel the extreme need for my Will to administer life to them. Their littleness is such that they are unable to make one act or take one step if my Will does not administer that act or that step to them. So they live completely at the expense of my Will, because their littleness carries no baggage, either of things from their own, or of love of self; rather, they take everything from my Will – and not to keep it for themselves, but to give it to Me. And since they need everything, they live dissolved in my Will.
Listen, I went round the earth over and over again; I looked at all creatures, one by one, in order to find the littlest of all. Among many I found you – the littlest of all. I liked your littleness and I chose you. I entrusted you to my Angels, so that they might keep you, not to make you grow, but to preserve your littleness. And now I want to begin the great work of the fulfillment of my Will; nor will you feel greater because of this; on the contrary, my Will will make you even smaller, and you will continue to be the little daughter of your Jesus – the Little Daughter of my Will.”
