The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will

Meditations for the Month of May
Prayer to the Celestial Queen for each day of the month of May
Immaculate Queen, my Celestial Mother, I come onto your maternal knees to abandon myself in your arms as your dear child, and to ask of You, with the most ardent sighs – in this month consecrated to You – the greatest of graces: that You admit me to live in the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
Holy Mama, You who are the Queen of this Kingdom, admit me to live in It as your child, that It may no longer be deserted, but populated by your children. Therefore, Sovereign Queen, I entrust myself to You, that You may lead my steps into the Kingdom of the Divine Will; and clinging to your maternal hand, You will lead all of my being to live perennial life in the Divine Will. You will be my Mama, and to You, my Mama, do I give my will, that You may exchange it with the Divine Will, and so I may be sure I will not go out of Its Kingdom. Therefore I beg You to illumine me in order to make me comprehend what ‘Will of God’ means.
Little Sacrifice of the Month:
Each morning, midday and night – three times a day – let us go onto the knees of our Celestial Mama, and say to Her: “My Mama, I love You; and You – love me, and give a sip of Divine Will to my soul. Give me your blessing, that I may do all of my actions under your maternal gaze.
The Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will. She continues Her Life in the Temple and forms the New Day to make the Refulgent Sun of the Divine Word rise upon Earth.
The soul to her Celestial Mama:
My most sweet Mama, I feel that You have stolen my heart, and I run to my Mama, who keeps my heart within Hers as a pledge of my love, and wants to put the Divine Will in place of my heart, as a pledge of Her love of Mother. So I come into your arms, that You may prepare me as your child, give me your lessons, and do with me whatever You want. Therefore I pray You never to leave your child alone, but to keep me always – always together with You.
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
My dearest child, oh, how I long to keep you always together with Me! I would like to be your heartbeat, your breath, the works of your hands, the step of your feet, to make you feel, through Me, how the Divine Will operated in Me. I would like to pour Its life in you. Oh, how sweet, lovable, enchanting and enrapturing It is! Oh, how you would render Me twice as happy, if I had you, my child, under the total empire of that Divine Fiat which formed all my fortune, my happiness and my glory.
Now, pay attention to Me, and listen to your Mama who wants to share Her fortune with you.
I continued my life in the temple, but Heaven was not closed for Me; I could go there anytime I wanted – I had free passage to ascend and to descend. In Heaven I had my Divine Family, and I burned and sighed to be with Them. The very Divine Persons awaited Me with great love in order to converse with Me, to be happy and to make Me more happy, more beautiful and more dear in Their eyes. After all, They had not created Me to keep Me far away – no, no. They wanted to enjoy Me as Their daughter; They wanted to hear how my words, animated by the Fiat, had the power to put peace between God and creatures. They loved to be won by Their little daughter, and to hear Me repeat to Them: “Descend – let the Word descend upon earth!” I can say that the Divinity Itself would call Me; and I would run – I would fly into Their midst. Since I had never done my human will, my presence gave Them return of love and glory for the great work of all Creation, and so They entrusted to Me the secret of the history of mankind. And I prayed and prayed for peace to come between God and man.
Now, my child, you must know that the human will alone closed Heaven, and therefore it was not given to man to penetrate into those celestial regions, or to have a familiar relationship with his Creator. On the contrary, the human will had cast him away from the One who had created him. At the moment man withdrew from the Divine Will, he became fearful, timid, and lost dominion over himself and the whole Creation. All the elements, because they were dominated by the Fiat, were superior to him and could harm him. Man was afraid of everything. And do you think it is trivial, my child, that the one who had been created as king and dominator of everything, reached the point of being afraid of the One who had created him? It is strange, my child, and I would say almost against nature, that a son would be afraid of his father; when it is according to nature that, as one generates, love and trust between father and son is also generated. This can be called the primary inheritance that is due to the son, and the primary right that is due to the father. Therefore, by doing his will, Adam lost the inheritance of His Father; he lost his Kingdom, and became the taunt of all created things.
My child, listen to your Mother, and ponder well the great evil of the human will. It removes the eyes of the soul and makes her blind, in such a way that everything is darkness and fear for the poor creature. Therefore, place your hand upon your heart and swear to your Mama that you would rather die than do your will. By never doing my will, I had no fear of my Creator. How could I be afraid if He loved Me so much? And the Kingdom extended so much within Me that, with my acts I kept forming the full day to make the new Sun of the Eternal Word rise upon earth. And as I saw that this day was being formed, I increased my pleas to obtain the longed-for day of peace between Heaven and earth.
Tomorrow I will wait for you to narrate to you another surprise of my life down here.
My Sovereign Mama, how sweet are your lessons! Oh, how they make me understand the great evil of my human will! Oh, how many times I too felt fear and timidity within me, and I felt as though far away from my Creator. Ah! It was my human will that reigned in me – not the divine; and this is why I felt its sad effects.
Therefore, if You love me as your child, take my heart in your hands and remove from me the fear and the timidity which prevent my flight toward my Creator. In their place, put in me that Fiat, which You love so much, and want to reign in my soul.
Today, to honor Me, you will place into my hands every bother, fear and distrust you may feel, that I may convert them into Will of God; saying to me, three times: “My Mama, make the Divine Will reign in my soul.”
My Mama, my trust, form the day of the Divine Will in my soul.
