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. The Fourth Step of the Divine Will in the Queen of Heaven: The Test.
The soul to the Virgin:
Here I am again, on the maternal knees of my dear Celestial Mama. My heart beats so very strongly. I am fidgety with love for the desire to hear your beautiful lessons; therefore, give me your hand and take me in your arms. In your arms I spend moments of Paradise – I feel happy. Oh, how I sigh to hear your voice! A new life descends into my heart. Therefore, talk to me, and I promise I will put your holy teachings into practice.
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
My child, if you knew how much I love to hold you tightly in my arms, leaning on my maternal Heart, to let you hear the celestial secrets of the Divine Fiat…! And if you sigh so much to listen to Me, those are my sighs that echo in your heart; it is your Mama that wants her child, and wants to entrust Her secrets to her, and to narrate to her the story of that which the Divine Will operated in Me.
Child of my Heart, pay attention to Me: it is my Heart of Mother that wants to pour itself out with her child. I want to tell you my secrets, which have not been revealed to anyone until now, because the hour of God had not yet come. Wanting to bestow surprising graces upon creatures, which He has not conceded in the whole history of the world, He wants to make known the prodigies of the Divine Fiat, and that which It can work in the creature, if she lets herself be dominated by It. This is why He wants to place Me in the sight of all, as model, since I had the great honor of forming my whole life of Divine Will.
Now, my child, know that as soon as I was conceived and put the Divinity in feast, Heaven and earth made feast for Me, and recognized Me as their Queen. I remained so identified with my Creator that I felt I was the owner in the divine dominions. I did not know what separation from my Creator was; that same Divine Will which reigned in Me, reigned in the Divine Persons, and rendered Us inseparable.
But while everything was smile and feast between Me and Them, I saw that They could not trust Me if They did not receive a proof. My child, the test is the flag that speaks victory. The test places all the goods that God wants to give us in safekeeping; the test matures and disposes the soul for gains of great conquests. I too saw the necessity of this test, because I wanted to give proof to my Creator with an act of faithfulness which would cost Me the sacrifice of my whole life, in exchange for the many seas of graces that He had given Me. How beautiful it is to be able to say: “You have loved me, I have loved You!” But without the test, it can never be said.
Now know, my child, that the Divine Fiat made Me know the creation of man, innocent and holy. For him too, everything was happiness. He had command over all Creation, and all the elements were obedient to his wishes. Since the Divine Will was reigning in Adam, by virtue of It, he too was inseparable from His Creator. After God had given so many goods to him, in order to receive one act of faithfulness in Adam, He commanded him not to touch one fruit only, of the many which were in the terrestrial Eden. This was the proof that God wanted in order to confirm his innocence, sanctity and happiness, and to give him the right of command over the whole of Creation. But Adam was not faithful in the test, and because he was not faithful, God could not trust him. So he lost command, innocence and happiness, and one can say that he turned the work of Creation upside down.
Now know, child of my Heart, that in knowing the grave evils of the human will in Adam and in all of his offspring, I, your Celestial Mother, though newly conceived, cried bitterly and with hot tears over fallen man. In seeing Me cry, the Divine Will asked Me, as proof, to surrender my human will to It. The Divine Fiat said to Me: “I do not ask of you a fruit, as with Adam; no, no – I ask for your will. You will keep it as if you did not have it, under the empire of my Divine Will, which will be your life, and will feel confident to make of you whatever It wants.”
So, the Supreme Fiat took the fourth step in my soul: asking Me for my will as proof; waiting for my Fiat, and for my acceptance of such a test.
Tomorrow I will wait for you again to come upon my knees, to let you hear the outcome of the test; and since I want you to imitate your Mama, I ask you, as a Mother, never to deny anything to your God, even though they might be sacrifices that would last all your life. Remaining ever unwavering in the test which God asks of you – your faithfulness, is the call of the divine designs upon you; it is the reflection of His virtues which, like many brushes, make of the soul the masterpiece of the Supreme Being. One can say that the test offers the raw material into the divine hands, so that they may accomplish their crafting in the soul. God does not know what to do with one who is not faithful in the test; not only this, but he upsets the most beautiful works of his Creator.
Therefore, my dear child, be attentive: if you are faithful in the test, you will make your Mama happier. Do not cause Me to be worried, give Me your word and I will guide you and sustain you in everything, as my own child.
Holy Mama, I know my weakness, but your maternal goodness infuses such confidence in me that I hope for everything from You, and with You I feel safe. Even more, I place into your hands the very tests which God will dispose for me, so that You may give me all the graces I need in order not to send the divine designs to ruin.
Today, to honor Me, you will come three times onto my maternal knees, and will bring Me all your pains, of soul and body. You will bring everything to your Mama, and I will bless them in order to infuse in them the strength, the light and the grace that are needed.
Celestial Mama, take me into your arms, and write in my heart: “Fiat, Fiat, Fiat.”
