The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will
From the writings of the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta
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. Nazareth, Symbol and Reality of the Kingdom of the Divine Fiat. Hidden Life. Mary, the Depository, the Source and the Perennial Channel.
The soul to her Sovereign Queen:
Most sweet Mama, here I am again at your maternal knees. You are together with the little child Jesus, and caressing Him, You tell Him your love story, and Jesus tells You His. Oh, how beautiful it is to find Jesus and His Mama talking to each other! The ardor of their love is so great that they remain mute – enraptured: the Mother in the Son, and the Son in the Mother. Holy Mama, do not put me aside, but keep me with You, so that, in listening to what You say, I may learn to love You and to do always the Most Holy Will of God.
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
Dearest child, oh, how I longed for you to continue my lessons on the Kingdom which the Supreme Fiat extended ever more within Me.
Now, you must know that for your Mama, for dear and sweet Jesus, and for Saint Joseph, the little house of Nazareth was a paradise. Being the Eternal Word, my dear Son possessed the Divine Will within Himself, of His own virtue; immense seas of light, of sanctity, of infinite joys and beauties resided in that little Humanity. I possessed the Divine Will by grace, and even though I could not embrace immensity, as did beloved Jesus – since He was God and Man, while I was always His finite creature – still, the Divine Fiat filled Me so much as to form Its seas of light, of sanctity, of love, of beauties and of happiness. And the light that came from us, the love, and all that a Divine Will can possess, were so great that Saint Joseph remained eclipsed, inundated, and lived from our reflections.
Dear child, in this house, the Kingdom of the Divine Will was in full force. Every little act of ours – working, starting the fire, preparing the food… – all were animated by the Supreme Volition, and were formed on the solidity of the sanctity of pure love. Therefore, from the tiniest to the greatest of our acts, immense joys, happinesses and beatitudes were unleashed. And we remained so inundated as to feel ourselves as though under a pouring rain of new joys and indescribable contentments.
My child, you must know that the Divine Will possesses, by nature, the source of joys, and when It reigns in the creature It delights in giving, in each one of her acts, the new and continuous act of Its joys and happinesses. Oh, how happy we were! Everything was peace, highest union, and each of us felt honored in obeying the other. My dear Son also competed in wanting to be commanded by Me and by dear Saint Joseph in the little jobs. Oh, how beautiful it was to see Him in the act of helping His foster father in the smith-work, or to see Him take food! But how many seas of grace did He let flow in those acts for the good of creatures?
Now, dear child, listen to Me: in this house of Nazareth, the Kingdom of the Divine Will was formed in your Mama and in the Humanity of my Son, to make of It a gift for the human family, when it would dispose itself to receive the good of this Kingdom. But even though my Son was King and I was Queen, We were King and Queen without a people. Our Kingdom, even though It could enclose all and give life to all, was deserted, because Redemption was needed first, in order to prepare and dispose man to come into this Kingdom, so holy. More so, since It was possessed by Me and by my Son, who belonged to the human family according to the human order, as well as to the Divine Family by virtue of the Divine Fiat and of the Incarnate Word, and therefore the creatures received the right to enter into this Kingdom. And the Divinity conceded this right, and left the doors open to those who wanted to enter. So, our hidden life of so many years served to prepare the Kingdom of the Divine Will for the creatures. This is why I want to let you know what this Supreme Fiat operated in Me, so that you may forget your will, and as you hold the hand of your Mama, I may lead you into the goods which I have prepared for you with so much love.
Tell me, child of my Heart, will you make Me content, and also your, and my, dear Jesus, who await you with so much love in this Kingdom so holy, to live together with us, and to live only of Divine Will?
Now, dear child, listen to another trait of love which my dear Jesus made for Me in the house of Nazareth: He made of Me the depository of His own life. When God does a work, He does not leave it suspended, or in the empty space, but He always looks for a creature in whom to enclose and place all of His work. Otherwise, there would be the danger that God might expose His works to uselessness – which cannot be. Therefore, my dear Son placed in Me His works, His words, His pains – everything. He deposited even His breath into His Mama. And when, withdrawn in our little room, He would speak sweetly and narrate to Me all the Gospels He was to preach to the public, and the Sacraments He was to institute, He entrusted everything to Me; and depositing everything in Me, He constituted Me perennial channel and source, because His life and all His goods were to come from Me for the good of all creatures. Oh, how rich and happy I felt in feeling that all that my dear Son Jesus did, was being deposited in Me! The Divine Will which reigned in Me gave Me the capacity to be able to receive everything, and Jesus felt He was receiving from His Mama the return of love and glory of the great work of Redemption. What did I not receive from God, because I never did my will, but always His? Everything; even the life of my Son was at my disposal; and while it remained always with Me, I could bilocate it, to give it to whomever would ask Me for it with love.
Now, my child, a little word to you. If you always do the Divine Will and never your own, and if you live in It, I, your Mama, will make the deposit of all the goods of my Son in your soul. Oh, how fortunate you will feel! You will have a divine life at your disposal, which will give you everything. And I, acting as your true Mama, will watch over you, so that this life may grow within you, forming the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
Holy Mama, I abandon myself into your arms. I am a little child who feels the extreme need of your maternal cares. O please! I pray You to take this will of mine and to enclose it in your Heart. Never give it to me again, that I may be happy to live always of Divine Will. In this way, I will make You and my dear Jesus content.
Today, to honor Me, you will come to make three little visits in the house of Nazareth to honor the Holy Family, reciting three Paters, Aves and Glorias, asking us to admit you to live in our midst.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, take me with you to live in the Kingdom of the Will of God.
