Personal Reflections on Divine Will
This page is personal poetic thoughts and feelings on Divine Will authored by the web master of this site. These thoughts and feelings are not teachings from the church, but rather how reading, meditating and loving Divine Will has affected my personal life and my relationship with the Blessed Trinity.
Garments of Light
Years ago when I first started reading Divine Will and got re-converted back into the Church I pondered on the idea that in Heaven we would all be given robes of light to wear by God. Last night I was reading from Volume 12 - January 1, 1920 - "The Divine Will Surrounds and Encloses Perfectly Who Lives in It and Forms for Him a Garment of Light, Formed from His Acts, Each of Which Encloses Jesus Multiplied as Many Times, More Than in the Sacramental Hosts." I read about the robes of light that God assigns us in Heaven. I have thought that we are children of light in Divine Will and God being the "light of the World" I am comforted by this thought. The reading however goes on to say that Jesus speaking to Luisa says, "But do you know what the garments of the soul who lives in my Volition are made of? They are not made of gold but of the purest Light. Moreover, this garment of Light will be as a mirror in order to show to all of Heaven how many acts she has done in my Volition. This is because she enclosed all of Me in every act that she did in my Will. Further, this garment will be adorned by many mirrors; and one will see all of Me in every mirror. Thus, wherever it looked at - from behind, from the front, from the right, or from the left - they will see Me multiplied as many times for as many acts as she did in my Volition. I could not give a more beautiful garment to these souls; it will be the emblem of only those souls who live in my Volition."
I had loved the idea of wearing light, though it seems impossible in this life. Luisa goes on to say, "I was left a little confused in hearing this, and He added: "How do you doubt? Moreover, Doesn?t the same happen in the Sacramental Hosts? If there are one thousand Hosts, there are one thousand Jesuses, and I communicate my whole self to a thousand; if there are one hundred Hosts, there are one hundred Jesuses, and I can give Myself only to a hundred. In the same way, the soul encloses Me within each act done in my Will, and I remain sealed inside the will of the soul. Therefore, these acts done in my Will are eternal Communions, the species not subject to being consumed as in the Sacramental Hosts. As those species are consumed, my Sacramental Life ends; on the other hand, in the Hosts of my Will there is no flour, or any other matter - the food, the substance of these Hosts of my Will, is my eternal Will Itself, united with the will of the soul, which is eternal with Me; and therefore these two wills are not subject to being consumed. So, what is the wonder, if the whole of my Person will be seen as multiplied for as many acts as she has done in my Will? More so, since I remained sealed in her and she, as many times, in Me. Therefore, the soul too will remain multiplied in Me for as many acts as she has done in my Will. These are the prodigies of my Will - and this is enough to cast any doubt away from you."
Imagine that we are wearing garments of light and that each particle (photon) of light contains the Blessed Trinity, so we are wearing millions of particles and each particle, each act done in Divine Will Contains God. Now each time we consciously act in Divine Will we add another photon containing God to our garment of Light. How beautiful we would become and how bright!!
Divine Will Like a Wheel
In the same reading of January 1, 1920 Jesus compared Divine Will to a wheel...
Then He added: "My daughter, my Will is wheel, and whoever enters into It remains entrapped within, to the point of not being able to find a way out; and everything she does remains fixed on the eternal point, and pours into the wheel of Eternity. .."
This reminds me of a reading from the Bible that I was reading recently...from Ezekiel 1:15 ..."Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel upon the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them. As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of a chrysolite; and the four had the same likeness, their construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel, When they went, they went in any of their four directions without turning as they went. The four wheels had rims and they had spokes and the rims were full of eyes round about. And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them. Wherever the spirit would go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them; for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels."
So each time we act in Divine Will God moves in that act and thinks in that thought and breaths in that breath and sees in that sight and hears in that sound.. and so the Blessed Trinity is inside me animating me and generating me in my every thought, word and action. And add to that all the acts done by all from Adam and Eve until the end of time and those acts remaining "fixed on the eternal point, and pouring into the wheel of Eternity..."
Also on April 11, 1924, Luisa wrote ..."But as I was thinking this, I felt crushed more than ever under an enormous weight. And my lovable Jesus, moving in my interior, showed Himself placing the edge of a wheel upon me, which He was carrying, and, all afflicted said to me, said to me: "My daughter, patience, this is the weight of the world that crushes us. Yet, one single edge leaning on you serves Me so as not to end it with the whole world..."
God is saying to Luisa that although she is only a created creature like us, she can help (and we can help) to save the world from the time of Adam and Eve to the end of time in the enormity and vastness and mystery that is the Divine Will.
Being in Divine Will Moment by Moment...
It occurs to me that I can struggle to be in Divine Will moment by moment or I can let the Blessed Trinity take over inside me. Yesterday I felt Jesus moving inside me.. as I moved my arm the arm of Jesus inside my arm was moving my arm... I felt His presence in my thoughts and actually thought about Him inside me and Him smiling when He generated a word or He animated an act.
Thinking Outside of Time, Going Backwards, Coming to the Present and Going to the End of Time...
Almost every morning for years I have been praying the following: "God Our Father, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Jesus from all the Altars throughout the world joined together with my every thought, word, and action of this day. And l tie these thoughts, words and actions to the last act done in the Divine Will by Adam. And I tie these thoughts, words and actions to the thoughts, words, and actions of Jesus, Mary and Luisa. And I tie those thoughts, words, and actions to the last act done in the Divine Will by the last man on earth. Oh my Jesus, I desire today to gain every indulgence and merit I can, and I offer them together with myself to you Mary Immaculate, so that you may best apply them to interests of Thy Sacred Heart of Jesus."
January 24, 1923, Volume 15 "... as though in a twinkling of an eye, from the first to the last man, and becoming actors, spectators and divinizers. By doing my Will one does not arrive at doing all that my Eternal Volition contains; rather, It descends into the creature as limited, as much as the creature can contain of It. Only one who enters into It expands and diffuses himself like solar light in the eternal flights of my Volition, and finding my acts and those of my Mama, he adds his own. Look inside my Will: are there perhaps other acts of creature multiplied within mine, reaching up to the last act which is to be performed on this earth? Look well - you will find none. This means that no one has entered. It had been reserved that the doors of my Eternal Volition would only be opened to my little daughter, so as to unify her acts with mine and with those of my Mama, and render all our acts triple, before the Supreme Majesty and for the good of creatures. Now, since I have opened the doors, others may enter, provided that they dispose themselves for such a great good."
a little further in the same reading ?All amazed, I said: ?My Love, who will be this fortunate Mother, this Son and this Spouse, which will conceal the Trinity on earth, and in whom your Will will be one?? And Jesus: "What? Have you not understood? Two of them are already at their place of honor: my Divine Mama and I, the Eternal Word, Son of the Celestial Father, and Son of the Celestial Mother since, by incarnating Myself in Her womb, I became Her own Son. The Spouse is the little daughter of my Will. I am in the middle, my Mama is at my right, and the Spouse at my left. As my Will acts in Me, It echoes to the right and to the left, and forms one single Will. This is why I have poured so many graces in you, I opened the doors of my Will, I revealed to you the secrets, the prodigies which my Will contains: to open many ways, so that you might be reached by the echo of my Will, and, losing your own, you might live with my Will alone. Aren?t you happy?"
And I: ?Thank You, O Jesus! And, I pray You, let it be so that I follow your Will.?

It is not so much the end of the world as it is the beginning of the world.
Finding Peace in Any Circumstance
Today I do not feel the strong presence of the Blessed Trinity in my soul. I talked with my wife about being a little down. She reminded me that Divine Will does NOT want for us to be depressed. To allow the complete action of God animating and generating me would be to find my peace, the great and wonderful peace that Jesus reminded Luisa about in Volume 3 January 3, 1900.
I continued to see myself all full of miseries; not only so, but also restless. It seems to me that all of my interior had become alarmed about the loss of Jesus. I kept thinking to myself that my great sins had made me deserve that my adorable Jesus had left me, and therefore I was not going to see Him any more. Oh, what a cruel death this thought is for me! Or rather, more ruthless than any death! ?No longer to see Jesus?! No longer to hear the gentleness of His voice?! To lose the One on whom my life depends, and from whom every good comes to me?! How can I live without Him? Ah, everything is over for me if I lose Jesus!? With these thoughts I felt an agony of death; all of my interior was upset for it wanted Jesus; and He, in a flash of light, manifested Himself to my soul, telling me: " Peace, peace, do not want to disturb yourself. Just as a most fragrant flower perfumes the place in which it is put, so does my peace fill with God the soul who possesses it." And He escaped like a flash."
The Steadfast Love of the Lord...
Lamentations 3:22-24 in the Bible says "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. 'The Lord is my portion,' says my soul, 'therefore I will hope in him.'"
We can't loose hope in the face of strife and difficulty, we must look to the mercy, gentleness, and love of the Blessed Trinity.
In Divine Will on January 15, 1920 the title of the reading is "In the Divine Will There is Found the Love and All the Attributes and Perfections of God as in an Inexhaustible Fountain, from Which One Can Take as Much as is Needed, to Reciprocate the Supreme Majesty in the Name of Everyone"
Then Jesus said to me in my interior: "My daughter, in my Will you will find this Love which can supply for the love of all. This is because whoever enters into my Will finds so many springs which rise up; and, for however much on could take, one never reduces it a drop. Thus, there is the spring of Love which impetuously casts its waves; but, for however much it hurls them forth, it always rises up. There is the spring of Beauty, and for however much beauty it emits, it never fades; rather, it rises up with always new and rarer beauties. There is the fountain of Wisdom, the fountain of Happiness, the fountain of Kindness, of Power, of Justice, and of all the rest of my qualities"...
Being Hidden by God
Diane and I felt that though we were around people who were threatened by Divine Will and were against it, God protected us from being hurt by them. We have never stopped reading Divine Will and practicing it, although we always remained obedient to the Church. Jesus talked with Luisa on December 25 1910 in Volume 10 as follows:
And good Jesus continued: "My daughter, I too loved hiddenness, but there is a time for everything. When the honor and the glory of the Father, as well as the good of souls, became necessary, I revealed Myself and I did my public life. So I do with souls: sometimes I keep them hidden, other times I manifest them; and you must be indifferent to everything, wanting only that which I want. Even more, I bless your heart and your mouth, and I Myself will speak in you, with my own mouth and with my own sorrow." And so He blessed me, and He disappeared.

The Light of God
I went out to dinner with Diane last night as she needed a little cheering up. Later that night I was praying and I felt a call to read Divine Will... Volume 12 May 28, 1920.
...Then He added: "The acts done in my Will are those which always excel over all, and have supremacy over all. Since they are done in my Will, they enter into the ambience of Eternity. Moreover, taking the first places, they leave all humans acts behind, running always ahead. It does not matter whether they are done before or after, if in one epoch or in another, or if they are little or great. It is enough that they were done in my Will in order that they are always the first and run ahead of all human acts...
I was inspired to think that that small act of trying to cheer Diane up was one done in Divine Will and important in God's eyes. We can be married, live normal lives and be in Divine Will if we are cognizant and think of God operating in us and continue to try...
A little further in the same reading...
"Thus acts done in my Volition, as they are done in my Will, convert into light-but light tied and merged with the Eternal Light. Therefore they do not mingle with human acts, rather, they have the virtue of changing human acts into Divine. Accordingly they leave all behind and are the first among all."
I think of two Bible references concerning light, the light of God Eternal Light. Exodus 34; 29-30 ...When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tables of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God. And when Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him...
Moses' face shone with the light of God - Eternal Light.
Matthew 17; 1-2 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart. And He was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light.
And so as we practice Divine Will we
with the light of God -
Eventually we will be amongst the Blessed Trinity and will all be "
like the sun
" and will be filled with the magnificence, the beauty,
and the wisdom of God.
Thy Kingdom Come...
"Thy kingdom come Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven..." from the Lord's Prayer will be answered when there have been enough acts done in Divine Will to satisfy Divine Justice. Heaven will be inside us at that point. In the meantime we need to continue to live our lives in quiet and peaceful recollection, for the recollected heart is the heart that God speaks to. In a day's activities we must pray and meditate on being in Divine Will.
I Step into the Divine Will...
On a morning walk I meditate and pray in reparation for the sins of mankind and I feel the Blessed Trinity animating and generating my arms and legs and breath and I step in the Divine Light of God and contemplate back to Adam and Eve and think of true Paradise on earth that existed then and then I pray that their actions in Divine Will be connected with the actions of Our Lady in Divine Will years later and then I pray that all of their actions be connected to the actions of the last man in Divine Will on earth...
And while I am doing this I see two souls approaching me with great pain and effects of being weighted down with sin and I see another soul approaching them and that soul is uplifted by Divine Will and brings the first two souls into the Divine Will and I want to flee and be alone with God, but the Blessed Trinity reminds me to wrap those souls in Divine Will I let the Blessed Trinity have Their Way with me and I see a light enveloping them... the light of Divine Will and I continue on my journey of life and know that the Blessed Trinity wants all of us to step into the Divine Will and share it with others and that it is time for lay people to study Luisa and learn of the mysteries of Divine Will and begin their own journey so that " Thy Kingdom Come Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven"... can happen in earnest...
I breathe the breath of the Holy
Spirit, and I love the creation of the Father and I join with the Holy Passion
and I can love my enemies in earnest for a split second, or rather out of time for eternity, and I never want to leave this place...
and I taste the blessing of feeling the peace of Divine Will...
and later I continue in Divine Will in my regular life as God talks through me to my mother and Diane...

This Generation will Not End...
Volume 12, February 22, 1921 Jesus is speaking to Luisa, "This generation will not end if my Will does not reign on earth. My Redeeming Fiat will put Itself in the middle, between the Creating Fiat and the Sanctifying Fiat..." Meaning before " Thy Kingdom Come Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven"... requirements must be met. We all must be living in Divine Will. The action of the Blessed Trinity is apparent once again. They are acting together, never apart and yet separate and distinct persons. Jesus goes on to say "The three will blend together and will complete the sanctification of man. The third 'FIAT' will give such grace to the creature as to make him return as if to his state of origin; And then, when I have seen man just as he came forth from Me, My Work will be complete, and I will take my perpetual rest in My last FIAT. Only the life in my Volition will give back to man his state of origin. Therefore, be attentive, and together with Me, help Me to complete the sanctification of the creature."
John10: 37-38 "...If I am not doing the works of My Father, then do not believe Me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father."
A Hug in Divine Will
I personally have been struggling with my job and while I was doing a tedious activity at work that only required my presence but not my mental activity I was praying and saw myself like a rocket shooting straight up into the bosom of the Blessed Trinity and felt that my REAL work was to study, contemplate, love and ACT in the Divine Will and the act that I was doing at that point became an act that the Blessed Trinity was working through me and I was at peace...
Later, while walking I was upset about the results of my annual job performance evaluation and felt that it was less than what I should have received, and I began to seek comfort from God and wished that I could embrace Jesus or the Father or the Holy Spirit physically and it occurred to me that God had given me to Diane in marriage and Diane to me and that God was in her and that if I hugged her that God in the mystery of Divine Will would be present and I could embrace God this way. I went home and told Diane about it and she hugged me and I felt better.
Some of Us Are Receiving the Good of Divine Will.
Luisa as a Protector, a Shell Around Divine Will...
From Volume 12, February 22, 1921 ...And Jesus: "My daughter, even if nobody had been saved with my descent upon earth, the work of glorifying the Father would already be complete. Likewise now; even if no one wanted to receive this gift - which will not be - you alone will be enough, and you will give Me the complete glory which I want from all creatures."
The words " which will not be " is particularly interesting in that we who are reading, studying and practicing the mysteries of the Divine Will are actually receiving the great gift. It is inspiring, comforting and hopeful that our lives on earth and our souls and our sufferings are immeasurably calculated and valuable by the Blessed Trinity.
On March 12, 1921, Volume 12 ...Then my amiable Jesus said to me: "My daughter you will provide the husk for Me to form the ear, in which I will be the grain, so that I will give my Will as food to nourish those souls who will want to feed themselves with my Will. You will be the husk that will preserve the grain."
Luisa was the protector, the
" the shell around the
later, after the death of Luisa, we (practitioners of
become the husk and invite the Blessed Trinity to animate and generate Their
acts, thoughts, and words in and through us. We must be careful to remain humble
and guard the sanctity of the
inside us. We must remain
attached to smallness and in this way each of us will add together as droplets
in the ocean of
God has planned for bringing Heaven to earth
Thy Kingdom Come Thy Will be done on earth as it
is in Heaven'.
Infused with Light...
Jesus has on occasion in prayer, said that He is infusing me with light... In Volume 12, April 2, 1921 Luisa says "If my Jesus wants me to, I write, He benignly speaks in words that He infuses into me by way of light..."

The Vastness of the Soul...
December 21, 1922,
"...But all this was
nothing yet. My poor soul, wanting my Life, my All, left my body in order to
find Him at least outside of myself, but in vain. Rather, I found myself within
an immensity, whose depth, magnitude and height seemed to have no limits. I
fixed my gaze everywhere within that great empty space - who knows, I might see
Him at least from afar, so as to take flight and throw myself into His arms..."
Then on January 2, 1923, Volume 15 "...I was praying and abandoning all of myself in the arms of the Most Holy Will of God, and my always lovable Jesus, coming out from my interior and taking my hand, told me: "My daughter, come with Me and look at the great void which exists between Heaven and earth. Before my Fiat was pronounced, this great void was horrible to the sight. Everything was disorder; no separation of land, of water, or of mountains could be seen ? it was one heap that struck fright. But as soon as my Fiat was pronounced, all things rolled about, bumping against one another, and each of them took its place, remaining all ordered with the imprint of my Eternal Fiat..."
And later in the same reading Jesus compares the void of the Universe to the void of the soul and the necessity of this void in order to form His Holy and Divine Will "...Now, my daughter, do you see this great void in which I created so many things? Yet, the void of the soul is even greater. The former was to serve as the dwelling of man; the void of the soul was to serve as the dwelling of a God. I was not to pronounce my Fiat for six days, as in creating the universe, but for as many days as the life of man contains - and so many times for as many as, putting his own will aside, he would let Mine operate. Therefore, since my Fiat was to do more things than It did in Creation, more space was needed. But do you know who gives Me free field in order to fill this great void of the soul? One who lives in my Will. My Fiats are pronounced repeatedly; every thought is accompanied by the power of my Fiat, and ? oh! how many stars adorn the heaven of the intelligence of the soul. Her actions are followed by my Fiat, and ? oh! how many suns rise within her..."
So all is happening in secret, in contemplation, in prayer, in meditation, in love with the Blessed Trinity. Our soul is VAST and God is bringing "Heaven to Earth..." through the individual souls who abandon themselves to Divine Will.
Do Not Reject Divine Will - Let Mary, the Mother of God into the Vastness of Your Prepared Soul and Let Her Bring the Divine Will of Her Divine Son...
Mary's job is bringing the good news of her son Jesus to us today and if it takes centuries for us to accept the Divine Will which is Heaven, into our souls. She will be relentless and patient.
From The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will "... Do not give me this sorrow - do not reject me. Accept this gift of Heaven I am bringing you; welcome my visit and my lessons. Know that I will go all over the world; I will go to each individual, to all families, to religious communities, to every nation, to all peoples, and if needed, I will go about for entire centuries until, as Queen, I have formed my people, and as Mother, my children, who may know the Divine Will and let It reign everywhere. Here is the purpose of this book. Those who will welcome it with love will be the first fortunate children to belong to the Kingdom of the divine Fiat, and with gold characters I will write their names in my maternal heart."
Saturation of the Divine Will in Souls on the Earth - A Combination of All the Small Acts - Like Letting Jesus Cook Through Me...
We had some very dear friends in the Divine Will over for dinner last night and we went to Holy Mass together then came back to our house for dinner. Lynne said that Jesus has made some delicious meals through her and how good and perfect they were. It is the small acts done in Divine Will offered together that matter, that will saturate, perhaps supersaturate the soul and at a point in this human time line in which we exist, by the power of the Holy Spirit we will burst forth in light, the light of the Divine Will. In Volume 11, Jan. 10 1917 Jesus says to Luisa, "...In the same way, one who neglected to unite many little acts together, would cause the nourishment of sanctity to be lacking; and just as one cannot live without food, in the same way, without the food of the little acts, the true shape of sanctity, and the mass sufficient to form sanctity, would be lacking..." And so we must not start our day without Jesus inside us, without the Father inside us, without the Holy Spirit inside us...
Filling our souls with unimaginable and infinite love...
Yet our acts are small, we are going through our daily lives, crosses and blessings, never alone, always with the Blessed Trinity acting inside us...
and we have infinite peace and happiness...
AND the combination of all the small acts in the Divine Will formed together " the mass sufficient to form sanctity "
AND THAT sanctity sufficient to transform the earth of goods for all your brothers."
Redemption through Mary, the Mother of God, Divine Will through Luisa Piccarreta, and Mankind moving BACK to Paradise... The Call to the Creature to Return to the Order, to the Place, and to the Purpose for Which It was Created by God
On August 13, 1923, Volume 16 "... Now, my daughter, if my Eternal Wisdom disposed that one Celestial Creature, the holiest of all, would prepare the seed of my Holy Will, in which I formed the plane of the new rising of man in my Supreme Will, now, through another creature, by letting her enter the eternal dwellings of my Will and binding her will to Mine, uniting her to all my acts, I make her whole interior rise again in the Eternal Sun of my Will, opening the field of this plane to the generations, so that, whoever wants it, can enter into it to place himself in relation with the Will of his Creator. And if until now creatures have enjoyed the goods of Redemption, now they will move further to enjoy the fruits of the ?Fiat Voluntas Tua on earth as it is in Heaven? - that lost happiness, that dignity and nobility, that peace all celestial which, by doing his will, man had caused to disappear from the face of the earth. Greater grace I could not give him, because by placing him again in relation with my Will, I give back to him all the goods with which I endowed him in creating him. Therefore, be attentive, because this is about opening a large field
There is a hunger, a desire, an emptiness that causes man to look outside of himself for something more, and even as we study the relationship of God with mankind we see ever increasing illumination (God the Creator, Jesus the Savior, and now the Sanctification by the Holy Spirit). The Divine Will provides the satisfaction, the Divine Peace "...that lost happiness, that dignity and nobility, that peace all celestial which, by doing his will, man had caused to disappear from the face of the earth." But by being in Divine Will and NOT in our own human will God gives BACK all the good with which He endowed to us when he created us. What a beautiful thought!

"...Only when creatures come to live in His Divine WILL will God be able to find His rest, complete His works and give the last divine brush stroke to all CREATION..." (Vol. 16, March 22, 1924)
I had a dream last night and during the dream I was praying the CHAPLET OF OUR LORD'S HOLY WOUNDS and I was worried about my step-daughter who has come back to live with us and Jesus was saying to me to give Him my intelligence and to not worry about her, that for now at this time He wanted me to meditate on His crucifixion and I began to have the most vivid images of our Lord's passion. I saw several souls on the earth that were on crosses especially constructed for them and they were all in Divine Will and we were aware of one another and by joining our crucified selves together in Divine Will we gave rest to Jesus and He said " This is the rest I spoke about after I created all things. And since man was the last to be created, I wanted to rest in him -- that is, by virture of my WILL, which overshadows my images in the soul, not finding my shadow, I cannot rest, because I cannot complete my works and give the last divine brush stroke to all Creation..."
Though it is mysterious and spiritual, we are giving Jesus rest who is God and needs no rest from us as His creations, It pleases the Blessed Trinity for us to perform acts in Divine Will and thus gives Them pleasure and we are then answering " The call of the creature to the Order, the Place and the Purpose for which he was created by God ."
"God the Father as Infinite Creator, Jesus as the Savior and Holy Spirit as the Renewer"
Jesus came to me early in the morning as I was praying. I asked Him how it was that humanity would just be ended and no more babies, no more creation, no more new life, we would all be spirits and eventually be rejoined with our bodies.. how could it all come to an end? and He "Rory just pray and I will explain in time..." Then I saw God the Father at the end of the Universe creating suns and stars and planets with intricate and carrying tenderness and what beauty, beyond compare and He said to me " I have to create, it is my nature and it is my Son's nature to suffer and to sacrifice." Then Jesus was with us and He, "I have never wanted to loose even one soul. It takes a life time to earn hell and so many choose hell, I suffer so greatly." Along with my confusion at this time I wanted to ask Him to release me from a sickness that I was having and also heal my wife from a sickness she was having, but at the same time I wanted to please Him and help Him in His sorrow and offer up my sickness. Jesus took part of the sickness into Himself from both of us and told me he would began to heal us at that moment. I see the Holy Spirit flying over the destruction of the earth and His path is bathed in light and beneath it the earth is being reborn and renewed in beauty and holiness. Later when my wife and I were reading Luisa Volume 16 April 11, 1924...
Jesus is talking to Luisa..."However, know that I do not want to force you. I have never liked force; so much so, that when I came upon earth and wanted to go and be born in Bethlehem, I went, yes, knocking at door after door to have a place in which to be born, but I did not force anyone. Had I wanted to, with my power I could have used force in order to obtain a place less uncomfortable in which to be born, but I did not want it; I contented Myself with only knocking and asking for shelter, and without insisting, I moved on to knock at other doors. And since no one wanted to receive Me, I contented Myself with going to be born in a grotto, in which animals gave Me free entrance and did the first adorations for their Creator, rather than forcing anyone to let Me in. However, this refusal cost the people of Bethlehem very much, because they never again received the good that my soles would trade upon their lands, or of seeing Me in their midst again. I like spontaneous things, not forced ones; I like for the soul to make what I want her own, and, as though it were hers and not mine, to give Me what I want freely with love Me. Force is for slaves, for servants, and for those who do not love. This is why, just as with those people of Bethlehem, I move on from those souls who are not ready to let Me enter into them and to give Me full freedom to do whatever I wanted with them.? On hearing this, I said: ?My Love, Jesus, no, I do not want to be forced, but, freely, I want to remain in this state, even at the cost of mortal pains. And You - never leave me, and give me the grace to always do your Will.?
So there is Divine Justice and Divine Mercy and Divine Will and the Three Divine Persons are working in me and the world and I can't explain everything in words once again, but I have a tremendous sense of peace and all seems in order and right!
Yet Another Reference to the Light of Divine Will Shinning Out From within Creatures...
June 1, 1924, Vol. 16 "This morning I found myself outside of myself, and I saw my last late confessor surrounded by many people who were all attentive and as though enraptured in listening to him; and he spoke and spoke, and became so inflamed as to inflame the others. I drew near to hear what he was saying, and to my surprise I heard that he was saying all that my blessed Jesus had told me ? His finesses of love, the many condescension's of Jesus toward me. And when he spoke of the stratagems of love of Jesus toward me, he radiated light, to the point of remaining transfused within that light; and not only himself, but also those who were listening to him. I remained surprised, and I said to myself: ?The confessor has done this not only in life ? telling the things of my soul to others ? but he is doing it also after his death, in the next life.'
And years later, those of us that continue with our little acts in Divine Will become "... transfused within that light", and not only affecting us but those who are around us, "... and not only himself, but also those who were listening to him". So we can affect our own salvation as well as those around us and we become transfigured which is a precursor to our own transfiguration and we are reminded of the transfiguration of Christ...
Mark 9: 2-8 " And after six days Jesus took with Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves; and Was transfigured before them and His garments became glistening, intensely white , as no fuller on earth could bleach them.
We are reminded of transfiguration, Divine Light, the whiteness of all that is good and holy in Revelation 1: 13-16 "...and in the midst of the lampstands, one like a son of man , clothed with a long robe and with a golden girdle round his breast; His head and His hair were white as white wool, white as snow; His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters; In His right hand He held seven stars, from His mouth issued a sharp two-edged sword, and His face was like the sun shinning in full strength."
And we are reminded once again of Moses in Exodus 34: 29-35 "When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tables of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God. And when Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, behold the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him ."
We are Children of Light as described in Ephesians 5: 8-10 "...for once you were darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as Children of Light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true)..."
Our faces must shine with the Divine Light of Divine Will. Divine Light must issue forth from us now and forever. It is our true destiny, our true inheritance, and we must be wearing the robes of Divine Light of the Divine Will in order to come face to face with the holiness, the whiteness, the beauty of the Almighty Blessed Trinity where we will dwell outside of time in the great wheel of eternity.
THE DOCTRINE OF DIVINE WILL
I got an e-mail from a brother in Divine Will recently and he referred to the Doctrine of Divine Will . I thought this had to be too much. I mean the Church will never accept this as doctrine... but Jesus in Volume 16, February 10, 1924 says as follows:
Necessity of complete abandonment in the Divine Will. The doctrine on the Divine Will is the purest, the most beautiful, and through it the Church will be renewed and the face of the earth transformed.
"I was thinking to myself about all that was written in these past days, and I said to myself that they were neither necessary nor serious things, that I could have done without putting them on paper, but obedience wanted it so, and I had the duty to say ?Fiat? also in this. But as I was thinking about this, my beloved Jesus told me: ?Yet, my daughter, everything was necessary in order to make known how to live in my Will. By not saying everything, you would cause some quality of how to live in It to be missing, and therefore they could not have the full effect of the living in my Will. As for example, on the abandonment of living in my Will: if the soul did not live completely abandoned in my Will, she would be like someone who lived in a sumptuous palace, and now leaned out of a window, now out of a balcony, now went down to the main door. So, only seldom or in passing does the poor one pass through some of the rooms, and therefore she knows little of the regime, of the work that is needed, of the goods which are there present, of what she can take, and of what she can give. Who knows how many goods are in there, and she knows little about it, therefore she does not love that palace as she should love it, nor does she esteem it as it deserves. Now, for the soul who lives in my Will and is not completely abandoned in It, self reflections, cares for herself, fears, disturbances, are nothing other than windows, balconies and main doors that she forms in my Will; and by going out very often, she is forced to see and feel the miseries of human life. And since the miseries are her own property, while the riches of my Will are mine, she becomes more attached to the miseries than to the riches, and so she will not come to love, nor will she enjoy what it means to live in my Will. And having formed the main door, one day or another she will go away to live in the miserable hovel of her own will. See, then, how complete abandonment in Me is necessary in order to live in my Will. My Will does not need the miseries of the human will; It wants the creature to live together with It - beautiful, just as It delivered her from Its womb, without the miserable provision that she has formed for herself in the exile of life. Otherwise, there would be disparity, which would bring sorrow to my Will and unhappiness to the human will.
Do you see how necessary it is to make them understand that complete abandonment is needed in order to live in my Will? And you say it was not necessary to write about it. I feel compassion for you, because you do not see what I see, and therefore you take it lightly. But in my all-seeingness, I see that these writings will be for my Church like a new sun which will rise in Her midst; and drawn by its blazing light, creatures will apply themselves in order to be transformed into this light and become spiritualized and divinized, in such a way that, as the Church will be renewed, they will transform the face of the earth. The doctrine on my Will is the purest, the most beautiful, not subject to any shadow of the material or of interest, both in the supernatural and in the natural order. Therefore, like sun, it will be the most penetrating, the most fecund, and the most welcomed and appreciated. And being light, of its own it will make itself understood and will make its way. It will not be subject to doubts or suspicions of error; and if some word is not understood, it will be because of too much light which, eclipsing the human intellect, will not allow them to comprehend the whole fullness of the truth. However, they will find not a word which is not truth. At the most, they will not be able to comprehend it fully. Therefore, in view of the good which I see, I push you to neglect nothing in writing. One saying, one effect, one simile about my Will can be like beneficial dew upon souls, just as dew is beneficial on the plants after a day of burning sun, or like a pouring rain after long months of drought. You cannot understand all the good, the light, the strength contained in each word; but your Jesus knows it, and knows the ones whom it must serve and the good it must do.? Now, as He was saying this, He showed me a table in the middle of the Church, and all the writings about the Divine Will placed upon it. Many venerable people surrounded that table and became transformed into light and divinized; and as they walked, they communicated that light to whomever they encountered. Then Jesus added: ?You will see this great good from Heaven, when the Church will receive this celestial food, which will strengthen Her and make Her rise again in Her full triumph.?'
says in the reading above that the Church will be renewed...
see that these writings will be for my Church like a new sun which will rise in
Her midst; and drawn by its blazing light, creatures will apply themselves in
order to be transformed into this light and become spiritualized and divinized,
in such a way that, as the Church will be renewed, they will transform the face
of the earth..."
So we are in the THIRD FIAT
and the Church is being renewed from within and we ourselves are being
transformed into light and becoming spiritualized and divinized! What that means
is that we need to pay attention to our faith and daily dedicate ourselves to
the Divine Will and continue our prayer and little acts in the Divine Will and
like a Rosary turned to the Heavenly gold, that gold like no other on earth...
we are divinized into spiritual light, that
that is distinguished by its source, the
. And what's more... Jesus showed Luisa a
table in the middle of the Church with all the writings of
on the table, and those writings
and those brothers
and sisters in Divine Will become transformed with that
shinning from their souls communicating
whomever they encountered... and the Church will rise again in glory. The Divine
"celestial food, which will strengthen
Her and make Her rise again in Her full triumph."
Thinking about Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion of the Christ" and it's connection to Luisa's "The Hours of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ", especially in reference to Our Lady...
It has been said that the movie The Passion of the Christ is a love story between mother and child, which is one theme, I agree. I heard a criticism before I saw the film that where Our Lady goes to Our Lord on His way to Calvary and says simply "I'm here.." and His response "See mother how I make all things new," is not in the bible. I got an e-mail stating that indeed it is... Revelation 21:5 - "Behold, I make all things new."
But what's more, Diane and I are reading " The Hours of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" with even more understanding and realize its beauty more than ever this holy Lent. To view the Passion from the Divine Will is unfathomable and Heavenly - 1 PM: The Second Hour of Agony on the Cross... "My crucified Love, while I am praying with You, the enrapturing force of your Love breaks upon seeing You suffer so. You suffer agonies of Love and of pain, and the flames that burn your Heart rise up so high that they are in the act of reducing You to ashes. Your Love contained is stronger than death itself; and, wanting to pour it out, You look at the thief on your right and snatch him from Hell..."
And a little later in His Passion "...You say, 'Woman, here is your son,' and to John, 'Here is your Mother!' Your voice descends into her maternal Heart; and, united to the voices of your Blood, it continues to say: 'My Mother, I entrust all my children to You. Let all the love that You feel for Me be for them. Let all your maternal cares and tenderness be for my children. You will save them all for Me.' Your Mother accepts...meanwhile, the pains are so strong that they reduce You to silence..."
Now Our Lady is my mother also...and your mother! Don't forget, she is the Patron Saint of the United States!
I also wanted to mention that just previous to Revelation 21:5, I think a Divine Will reference is made..
" Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a great voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away."
Divine Will reigning in us is a new heaven and a new earth, and all the false prophesies will pass away, and all the Love and Justice and Mercy of the Blessed Trinity will become apparent, however, it will be a surprise to all how this occurs, much more peaceful, much more interior, much more contemplative.. than perhaps imagined. "Behold, the dwelling of God is with men." Divine Will dwells within us!
FIAT "BEHOLD I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW!"
Sinning - The Loss of Hope, Then the Regaining of Hope in Divine Will
Last Tuesday evening, following Eucharistic Adoration I mentioned to Diane that I was reading the Bible and in Sirach 14:1-2 "Blessed is the man who does not blunder with his lips and need not suffer grief for sin. Blessed is he whose heart does not condemn him, and has not given up his HOPE ". Diane immediately exclaimed, "I was reading about HOPE in Divine Will !!!"
Last night I sinned and today I felt down and not at peace and without hope. I was tired and "not quite right" all day. I began to think about my job, my marriage... Why was I hopeless? I made it a point to go to Confession and Mass. As I was praying, I got a word from Jesus explaining that He did indeed still love me and He wanted for me to be at peace and to remember what He had taught Diane and I two nights ago about HOPE! He asked me to work on this site as a penance. After Holy Confession I began to feel IMMEDIATELY better and at peace and then Mass was such a special blessing! I began to contemplate HOPE and its importance.
Jesus says to Luisa in Volume 2, September f9, 1899 ..."You, however, rise more, and dive into the immense sea of Hope, which is made of all my merits that I acquired in the course of my mortal life, and of all the pains of my Passion, which I also gave to man as gift. Only through these can you hope for the immense goods of Faith, because there is no other way to obtain them. So, as you avail yourself of these merits of mine as if they were your own, your ?nothing? will no longer feel dissolved and sinking into the abyss of nothingness, but acquiring new life, it will be embellished and enriched, in such a way as to draw the very divine gazes upon itself. Then the soul will no longer be timid, but Hope will administer to her courage and strength, in such a way as to render her stable like a pillar exposed to all the intemperances of the air, which are the various tribulations of life, and which do not move her a tiny bit. And Hope will cause the soul not only to immerse herself without fear into the immense riches of Faith, but to make herself the owner of them; and through Hope she will reach such a point as to make God Himself her own. Ah, yes! Hope makes the soul reach wherever she wants; Hope is the door of Heaven - only by means of It can it be opened, because one who hopes for everything, obtains everything. Then, after the soul has reached the point of making God Himself her own, immediately, without any obstacle, she will find herself in the immense ocean of Charity, and carrying Faith and Hope with her, she will immerse herself in it and will form one single thing with Me, her God.
In the Catechism of the Catholic Church 1821: Saint Teresa of Avila said about HOPE, "Hope, O my soul, hope. You know neither the day nor the hour. Watch carefully, for everything passes quickly, even though your impatience makes doubtful what is certain, and turns a very short time into a long one. Dream that the more you struggle, the more you prove the love that you bear your God, and the more you will rejoice one day with your Beloved, in a happiness and rapture that can never end."
My best friend was talking about being envious of someone because they were beautiful and they had attractive daughters. I tried to help by telling ny friend about a meditation I had during Eucharistic Adoration this week. Luisa had a vision of Father (Saint) Hannibal after his death as follows:
"I saw the blessed soul of Father Hannibal before me, near my bed, invested with light, suspended from the earth, fixing on me, but without telling me one word. I too felt mute before him, and Jesus added: Look at him, how transformed he is. My Will is light, and has transformed that soul into light; It is beautiful, and has given him all the shades of perfect beauty; It is holy, and he has been sanctified. My Will possesses all sciences, and his soul has been invested by Divine Science. There is nothing which my Will has not given to him. Oh! if all understood what Divine Will means, they would put everything aside, they would care about doing nothing else, and their whole commitment would be to do my Will alone. And now he enjoys, in the sea of light of the Divine Will and this is more than anything. " June 1, 1927 Vol. 22
God showed me in the Bible where outside appearance is not important, but rather what is in a person's heart...
"But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for the Lord sees not as a man sees; man looks on the outward appearance but the Lord looks on the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7
A Meditation on Heaven
First, what does it mean "...Thy Kingdom come thy Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven?" It means that the Blessed Trinity working inside us (in our souls) in Divine Will so that our thoughts, words, and actions become divinized .. Heaven in us as in April 23, 1925 Vol. 17 Christ says to Luisa, "And this is what I want from you, so that all your acts, marked by my Will, may form one single act; and uniting to the single act of my Will which has no multiplicity of acts, as in man, they may remain in that eternal beginning, in order to copy your Creator, and to give Him the glory and the contentment that His Will be done in you as It is in Heaven.”
We find our true destiny, that thing which God wrote on our souls at conception, that desire to be with Him in Heaven. According to the Catholic Catechism starting at paragraph 1025 we find our true name ..."
To live in heaven is "to be with Christ." The elect live 'in Christ,' but they retain, or rather find, their true identity, their own name.
By his death and Resurrection, Jesus Christ has "opened" heaven to us. The life of the blessed consists in the full and perfect possession of the fruits of the redemption accomplished by Christ. He makes partners in his heavenly glorification those who have believed in him and remained faithful to his will. Heaven is the blessed community of all who are perfectly incorporated into Christ.
This mystery of blessed communion with God and all who are in Christ is beyond all understanding and description. Scripture speaks of it in images: life, light, peace, wedding feast, wine of the kingdom, the Father's house, the heavenly Jerusalem, paradise:
And in 1Corinthians 2:9 "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him."
Because of his transcendence, God cannot be seen as He is, unless He Himself opens up his mystery to man's immediate contemplation and gives him the capacity for it. The Church calls this contemplation of God in his heavenly glory "the beatific vision":
In the glory of heaven the blessed continue joyfully to fulfill God's will in relation to other men and to all creation. Already they reign with Christ; with him "they shall reign for ever and ever."
