The More Acts Luisa Performs Witihin Us
The More Her Divine Life Grows Within Us
From the Writings of Luisa Piccarreta
“The Little Daughter of the Divine Will”
Letters of Luisa #67
Do you want to know how to grow in the FIAT? By calling it in everything you do, whether natural or spiritual. In fact, everything belongs to the Divine Will; therefore It wants to love together with you, and if you call It, It gives you Its Love in your power in order to be loved; It gives you Its sanctity to make yourself a saint, Its light to allow you to know yourself and to eclipse weaknesses, miseries and passions, so that they may no longer have life in you, but only Its Will, which lays and forms Its life in your little act… If you do so, It will feel as a Queen in my daughter who is far away – but a ruling Queen. You will give It much to do, and whatever you do, It will do. It will not leave you one instant; on the contrary, It will form your breath, your heartbeat, motion, step, and, even while you sleep, It will form your rest and will rest together with you. But all Its contentment will be to feel as the Queen and Mother of her daughter and mine…
VOL. 21 – March 26, 1927
“My daughter, as many acts as the soul does in My Will, so many times does she rise again in the Divine Life; and the more acts she does in It, the more the Divine Life grows, and the more complete becomes the glory of the Resurrection. Therefore, the foundation, the substance, the light, the beauty, the glory, are formed by the acts done in My Will. The more contact the soul has had with My Will, the more It can give, embellish and expand.
“Even more, one who has always lived in My Volition, since My Will has had Its dominion over all the acts of the creature, will possess the act ever new of My Fiat. So, not only will she receive the new and continuous act of the beatitudes from God, but by virtue of My Will that she has possessed on earth, she will possess the new act of the beatitudes within herself, such that, as she releases it from herself, it will invest the whole Celestial Fatherland. And so, there will be such harmony between the new act of God and the new act of one who has possessed My Will, as to form the most beautiful enchantment for that Celestial Dwelling. The prodigies of My Will are eternal and ever new.”
VOL. 28 – April 1, 1930
Then, I continued my round in the acts of the Divine Will, and I thought to myself: ‘But what is the use for the so many times I go round and round in the Supreme Fiat to follow Its acts?’ And my sweet Jesus added: “My daughter, all lives have need of nourishment; without nourishment, a person neither forms nor grows. And if nourishment is lacking, there is the danger that life may be taken away from him. Now, following my Will, uniting oneself to Its acts, going around in It over and over again, serves to form the nourishment with which to nourish, form and make Its Life grow in your soul. Its Life can nourish Itself with no other acts but those which are done in Its Will; nor can It form in the creature, or grow, if she does not enter into It; and by the union of her acts, It forms in her Its birth of light, to form Its Life of Divine Will in the creature. And the more acts of Divine Will she forms, and the more she unites herself with Its acts and lives in It, the more abundant food she forms to nourish It and make It grow more quickly within her soul. Therefore, your going around in It is life that it forms – it is nourishment that serves the development of the Life of my Divine Will in your soul; and it serves to prepare the food to nourish my Will in the other creatures. Therefore, be attentive, and do not want to stop.”
VOL. 35 – April 4, 1938
“In the same way, I Created the strong necessity of My Will in the creature. I Created the soul, like water for the earth, that had to flow—more than water—in the earth of the body. I Created My Will in it, like Sun, Light and Heat, that had to vivify, fecundate and embellish it, but with so much Beauty as to continuously enrapture Us for Love of her. Then, just as the farmer throws the seeds into the earth to make it produce, My Will assumed the commitment of throwing many Divine Seeds into the creature, that had to rise like many Suns, one more Beautiful than the other, to produce blooms and Celestial fruits, that had to serve as food for the creatures, and even as food for their Creator; for Our Food—Our Life—is Our Will.
“Do you see then, the necessity of the Union of Acts which, like Seeds, are formed by the creature? This necessity determines the growth of My Will within her; it communicates the Virtue of Our Divine Qualities, producing many Prodigies of Grace and Beauty. And We Love her so much that not only do We become inseparable, but We also Operate continuously within her. We know that if We Love, she Loves; if We Work, she works—nor can she do anything without Us. If her Union with Us were missing, she would be reduced to uselessness, like the earth with no water, no sun and no seed. Therefore, Loving her very much, We do everything in her. Do you see, at what painful, harmful and almost horrible point the creature puts herself without Our Will?”
