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 Sixth Step of the Divine Will in the Queen of Heaven.After the Triumph in the Test, the Possession.
The soul to the Virgin:
Queen Mama, I see that You are waiting for me again, and stretching out your hand, You take me on your knees and press me to your Heart, to let me feel the Life of that Divine Fiat which You possess. Oh, how refreshing is Its warmth! How penetrating is Its light! O please, Holy Mama, if You love me so much, plunge the little atom of my soul into the Sun of the Divine Will which You conceal, that I may say: “My will is ended, it will have life no more; my life will be the Divine Will.”
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
Dearest child, trust your Mama and pay attention to my lessons; they will serve to make you abhor your will and to long within you for that Holy Fiat, whose Life I greatly yearn to form in you.
My child, you must know that the Divinity was assured about Me through the test It wanted, while everyone believes that I had no test, and that it was enough for God to make the great portent of conceiving Me without original sin. But – oh, how they deceive themselves! On the contrary, He asked of Me a proof which He has asked of no one. And He did this with justice and with highest wisdom, because since the Eternal Word was to descend into Me, not only was it not decorous that He find original sin in Me, but it was also not decorous for Him to find a human will operating in Me. It would have been too unbefitting for God to descend into a creature in whom the human will reigned. Here is why He wanted my will as proof from Me – and for my whole life, in order to secure the Kingdom of the Divine Will within my soul. Once He secured this in Me, God could do with Me whatever He wanted; He could give Me anything, and I can say that He could deny Me nothing.
For now, let us go back to the point we reached. I will reserve the narration of what this Divine Will did in Me during the course of my lessons.
Now listen, my child: after the triumph in the test, the Divine Fiat took the sixth step in my soul by allowing Me to take possession of all of the divine qualities, as much as is possible and imaginable for creature. Everything was mine – Heaven, earth, and even God Himself, whose very Will I possessed. I felt I was the possessor of Divine Sanctity, of Divine Love, Beauty, Power, Wisdom and Goodness. I felt I was Queen of everything; nor did I feel a stranger in the house of my Celestial Father. I felt vividly His paternity and the supreme happiness of being His faithful daughter. I can say that I grew up on the paternal knees of God, nor did I know other love or science but that which my Creator administered to Me. Who can tell you all that this Divine Will did in Me? It raised Me so high, It embellished Me so much…so much, that the very Angels remain mute, nor do they know where to begin to speak about Me.
Now, my dearest child, you must know that as soon as the Divine Fiat had Me take possession of everything, I felt I was the possessor of everything and of everyone. With Its Power, Immensity and All-seeingness, the Divine Will enclosed all creatures within my soul, and I felt a little place in my Heart for each one of them. So, from the moment I was conceived I carried you in my Heart, and – oh, how much I loved you, and I do love you! I loved you so much that I acted as your Mother before God; my prayers and my sighs were for you, and in the delirium of a Mother, I said: “Oh, how I wish to see my child possessor of everything, just as I am!”
Therefore, listen to your Mama: do not want to recognize your human will any more. If you do so, everything will be in common between you and Me; you will have a divine strength in your power; all things will turn into divine sanctity, love and beauty. And in the ardor of my love, just as the Most High sang my praises, “All beautiful, all holy, all pure are You, O Mary!”, I will say: “Beautiful, pure and holy is my child, because she possesses the Divine Will.”
Queen of Heaven, I too hail You, “All beautiful, pure and holy is my Celestial Mama”. O please, I pray You, if You have a place for me in your maternal Heart, O please! enclose me in It, so I will be sure that I will no longer do my will, but always that of God; and we will both be happy – Mother and child.
Today, to honor Me, you will recite three Glory Be’s for three times, in thanksgiving to the Most Holy Trinity for establishing in Me the Kingdom of the Divine Will, giving Me possession of everything. And making the words of the Supreme Being your own, at each Glory Be, you will say to Me: “All beautiful, pure and holy is my Mama.”
Queen of Heaven, make me possessed by the Divine Will.
