THE WHEELS OF ETERNITY
+verse 15 “Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel upon the earth (1) beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them. (2)
(1) Book of Heaven, volume 12, 1/1/20: “My daughter, My Will is wheel, and whoever enters into It remains so circumvented inside as to not find the opening to leave. Moreover, everything that she does remains fixed to the Eternal Point and opens in the Wheel of Eternity.”
(2) CCC#1138: “...all creation (the four living beings)...”
+verse 16 “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 (1), their construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel. (2)
(1) Book of Heaven, Volume 13, 2/2/22: “Now, the little wheel that was in the center seemed as though it were a little sun-wheel; Jesus admiring Himself within it, so as to see whether His adorable Person would reappear in its entirety in the sun-wheel; His Person reappearing in it, Jesus was very happy....”
(2) Book of Heaven, Volume 16, 9/21/23: “My daughter, this circle is my Eternal Will that embraces the great wheel of Eternity. All that is within this great circle is none other than all that My Humanity did in the Divine Will to impetrate that my Volition be fulfilled on earth as in Heaven.”
+verse 17 “When they went, they went in any of their four directions without turning as they went.
Book of Heaven, Volume 17, 8/14/24: “My daughter, do you want to move always about in my Volition? Oh, with what longing and with what love do I wish for you to go always around in my Volition! Your soul will be the little wheel; my Will will supply you the spring to make you go around speedily without ever stopping. Your desire will be the point of departure from where you want to leave, which way you want to take, if it is in the past or the present, or if you wish to delight yourself in future ways. It will be as you choose. You will always be dear, and you will give Me the greatest delight no matter which point of departure you select.”
+verse 18 “The four wheels had rims and they had spokes and their rims were full of eyes round about.”
Book of Heaven, Volume 14, 8/29/22: “Imagine a wheel: the center is my Humanity; the spokes are everything I did and suffered. The circle (the rims) where all the spokes unite is the human family (full of eyes) which revolves around the center.”
+verses 19-20 “And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose. 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.”
Book of Heaven, Volume 14, 8/12/22: “....this wire of your human will shall fuse into My Will in the great wheel of eternity; it shall reach to all places and will be encountered everywhere.”
+verse 21 “When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth; the wheels rose along with them (1); for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels (2).
(1) Book of Heaven, Volume 16, 2/2/24: “This happens as in a machine where there is a prime wheel and many other little wheels fixed around it. As the prime wheel moves, the little wheels receive their motion; but they never touch the prime wheel, nor do they know anything of what it does of the good it contains. On the other hand, another little wheel, which is not fixed, goes around by means of a mechanism for all the wheels, in order to find itself in each motion of the prime wheel and again do its round. Now this little wheel, going around, knows what there is in the prime wheel and takes part in the good it contains. Well then, the first wheel is My Will; the fixed wheels are the souls abandoned to themselves which render them immobilized for doing good; the wheel going around is the soul that lives in My Will; and the mechanism is total abandonment in Me. Thus, each lack of abandonment is a round that one loses in the ambience of Eternity....”
(2) Book of Heaven, Volume 13, 10/21/21: “Eternity turns you around like a wheel, so that you take part in everything and nothing escapes from you; all of this is so that my Will is honored and fully glorified in you.”
Book of Heaven, Volume 13, 2/4/22:
“My daughter, the souls that live in my Will are the little wheels that turn in the great wheel of Eternity. My Will is the motion and the life of the never-ending wheel of Eternity. As these souls enter into my Volition to pray, to love, to work, etc., the wheel of Eternity makes them turn in its endless circumference; in that wheel they find everything that has been done and must be done, everything that should have been done and is not done. Oh, how beautiful it is to see a soul enter into my Volition! As it enters, the great wheel of Eternity gives it a rope to make it turn in the massive structure of the wheel, and the small wheel undergoes eternal turns. The rope of the great wheel puts it into communication with all the divine ropes; as it turns, it does whatever its Creator does.” “As the soul enters into my Will - even by a simple acceptance, or an abandonment - I give it a rope to make it turn. It turns as many times as minds think, as creatures give glances, as they speak words, as they take steps and accomplish works; they turn at every divine act, at every movement, at every grace that descends from Heaven: in other words, at whatever is done in Heaven and on earth, they turn. The turns of these little wheels are quick and rapid; consequently, they are incalculable to themselves.
“And he who talked to me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city (Isaiah 60:14: “they shall call you the City of the Lord...”) and its gates and walls. The city lies foursquare, its length the same as its breadth.”
“And I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand! Then I said, ‘Where are you going?’. And he said to me, ‘To measure Jerusalem to see what is its breadth and what is its length.’”
The Book of Heaven, Volume 13, 2/2/22:
Luisa: “This morning, my ever amiable Jesus came, all goodness and sweetness; He had a rope around His neck and in His hand an instrument...” “Then He removed the rope from His neck and placed it on my own; He then fastened the instrument in the center of my person. A measuring device that turned by a small wheel in the center of the instrument was measuring my entire person, to see whether all the parts were equal. He was very careful to observe whether the measuring device, as it turned around, found a perfect equality. Having found this equality, He gave a sigh of great joy, saying: ‘If I had not found it equal, I would not have been able to accomplish what I want.’” Now, the little wheel that was in the center seemed as though it were a little sun-wheel; Jesus admiring himself within it, so as to see whether His adorable Person would reappear in its entirety in the sun-wheel; His Person reappearing in it, Jesus was very happy.....”At that very moment, there descended from Heaven another little wheel of light that was similar to the one that was in the center of my person; but it did not detach its rays from Heaven. They became jointed together, and Jesus placed them in me with His most Holy Hands.” “Acts done in my Volition will turn always in the never-ending wheel of eternity, so as to make themselves life, light, and warmth for everyone.”
Jeremiah 17:18: “The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: ‘Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.’ So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do.”

MY GRANDCHILDREN: AN EXERCISE IN LIVING IN THE DIVINE WILL
Where is Jesus, The Father, The Holy Spirit in this picture? The answer is, “In the Divine Will”.
You can see God and heaven in the peace and tranquility, playing with and through my grandchildren in this picture. Living in the Divine Will comes naturally for the innocents. Adults have to exert some effort, time in prayer, pleading and exhorting God to have mercy and grant us the gift of His Divine Will, just so we can retrace our steps to innocence. Meanwhile, these kids have got it and are living it. Only after much instruction, discipline, regimen, time in the classroom and time out sitting in the corner are they able to grow out of the Divine Will, stop wasting time and start being productive --and into the “real world”, as we like to call it.
Of course, if we as parents don’t provide role models, educate and train them into little replicates of ourselves, they would grow up into spoiled monsters, wouldn’t they?
Trusting God. Loving Him for Who He Is. Appreciating all the good things He does for us, and telling Him so. Not worrying. Not hurrying. So many people trust God and “Let go and Let God”... for a couple of minutes. Living in the Divine Will involves more than a couple of minutes. It involves a lifetime and a life style, until a flowing of life develops, where the flow is from God to me and from me to God.
In the Divine Will, I become as a little child.
Not because I become great as God. Not because I act. Not because I do or am. But because God IS that little child, being and doing.
June, 1994 (Rory)
I saw Diane and I ( or at least two figures one male and the other female which seemed to me to be husband and wife) walking a tight wire. I couldn't see any ground or to the left or right. We were teetering and careful. Every time one of us would begin to fall he or she would pull the other to safety with the Holy Rosary. It was black everywhere, above, below and around us. We were wearing a priestly black and the Secular Order of Mary Patches on our shirts. We were all together in a group in a private home, and kneeling in a circle praying fervently, holding hands that were extended toward the Almighty in Heaven. Outside was black, pitch black, only the light from lightning and fire and wind, a wind unlike any earthly wind I have ever experienced. There was a shaft of light like a column coming from Heaven encompassing the house and fire and evil spirits and lighting and wind were bouncing off the holy shaft of light. And there were columns of light like this allover the earth shining on groups of protected souls. We were praying fervently. Then after this there was an opening in the sky above and God shown Himself as the Trinity with the Father as extended arms and Christ embracing humankind and the Dove that is the Holy Spirit and a bright heavenly light unlike any I have ever seen and I distinctly remember a feeling of warmth in my chest and being lifted up into the light of God, raised body and soul toward the light and it was wonderful. During this vision I was praying the Rosary and also saying I am nothing You are everything and please Lord let Your Divine Will reign in my heart. I also was tempted and saw a beautifu1 woman in a restaurant from the side in a booth. She turned to me and I asked her to say that Jesus was her Lord and Savior and her face turned monstrous and she shrieked no never and floated away.
July 2, 1994 (Rory)
I saw a green rolling hills and clean fresh air, perfect and without pollutants. I heard the voices of angels and people praising God and in absolute happiness. It was a peace and beauty not found on this Earth, and yet it was this Earth. I saw a crack and a blackness that is total blackness and a purple edge around the crack in the sky that was no sky. A heavenly beam of light shown through the crack and I thought it was the beginning of the new era and the end of the Chastisement.
...I have had several visions in the past few weeks. I saw the blackness again and Diane, Laura, and myself praying in front of the crucifix. There is a kind of blue-black looking sparkly stuff on the ground outside. It looks like ashen snow. It sparkles like snow but is blue-black. It looks deadly. The blinds are closed in the front room. There is screaming and hollering and people in pain outside. All at once there is a scratching at the window. It is Brian with leprosy looking skin, and scratching,. and bloody hands, yelling for help and to get in. I know it is not really Brian, but an evil spirit, the devil. Then later Jenna is crying outside the front door, asking for her mother, whining and crying. I know that is not Jenna either. She is somewhere else in the world. I hold Diane back. It is not Jenna. I ask Jesus to cover us in his precious blood. The crying changes to a snarl and growl of the worst kind and shrieks off into the darkness. I see the crosses we have nailed over the door ways and entrances to the house shooting beams of deadly light at the fly1ng evil spirits. The devils shriek away. I see many beautiful children jumping as I look up from a cool, clear pool of water. The children are jumping from one side of a cliff to another side. All at once a child falls and I catch him in my arms. He yells in glee not afraid. After I catch him, I throw the boy in the water, and he splashes and swims about. I catch several more children. We are all wearing clothes that are made of light or beams of some sort. They do not get wet. Later, I see myself teaching children how to fly. It seems not everyone can fly right away. We get more and more intelligent, the more filled with the Holy Spirit we are. And eventually we are lifted body and soul into heaven.

I heard Indian drums and the sound of a rushing river and birds and animal sounds from the ancient, American forest. Mostly, I have been having inner locutions and developing a personal relationship with Jesus, Saint Joseph, Padre Pio, Saint Michael the Archangel, and my guardian angel, Honesty For The Glory Of God. I have tested the spirit with the beginning of every locution by asking for the voice to recognize Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Jesus has asked me to work with Saint Joseph right now. I am praying to him for intercession on my life especially my career and my responsibility for Laura. Jesus directed me to buy a crucifix and then make it a traveling crucifix. I did as I was directed. God is working through this holy cross. Diane started having inner locutions last night. Mary, the blessed Virgin talked with her. She tested the spirit. Satan interrupted her a few times. The Blessed Virgin relieved Diane about her mother and father. Diane asked about Laura and I and she was told by Mary that Saint Joseph will help guide me through intercession with God.
July 30, 1994 (Rory)
I was in my partial awake, but not asleep state and began thinking about Saint Joseph, and wanting him to come to me. Christ has been speaking to me and told me to work with Saint Joseph regarding Laura and my career in particular. I am also to work with Padre Pio, Saint Michael, and Honesty For The Glory Of God (my guardian angel). I thought I heard Joseph's voice, but it was not. It was booming and beautiful, and I knew it was Saint Michael. He told me to take my Rosary, which I did immediately. He told me to start praying. I began to pray the Apostle's Creed, but then I was confused and couldn't say the right words and was inclined to blaspheme. Oh no! I had forgotten to test the spirit. I said, "say Jesus is my Lord and Savior." He refused and began to scream and change. I said "Jesus cover me in your precious blood. Leave me Satan in the name of Jesus". I began to pray the Joyful Mysteries. The demons increased and kept attacking me. I prayed through the Annunciation and the Visitation, and then asked God for relief. I especially wanted to concentrate on the Birth of Our Lord Mystery. During this time I heard another similar beautiful voice. He immediately said I bow down before God the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. I said "Say that Jesus is my Lord and Savior." He said, "Jesus is my Lord and Savior", in the most beautiful and strong way. I couldn't see him, except I began to see a glimpse and he said in a booming voice, "Don't look at me! Look up at God, now and pray. Concentrate, Rory." I began to pray the Hail Mary very carefully. "No, think of each word and concentrate!" I did and he began to pray with me. I looked on my right and caught a glimpse of his huge stature and his beautiful wings and piercing eyes. He said, "I am nothing, only a messenger, God is everything. Place your heart in the Divine Will of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Look away from me. I am nothing!" I said "Who are you?" He said "I am Saint Michael the Archangel. Concentrate on your prayers, Rory. It is alright to pray in your car, but God is more pleased if you concentrate and pray in a church." I began to pray and he prayed with me kneeling down on my right side. It was the most wonderful feeling I have ever experienced. Well maybe not, I felt pretty wonderful at Conyers. I looked up and saw the most beautiful light coming down. It was undescribable. It was peaceful, yet I felt full of power and at rest, yet unable to move. I was unaware of anything around me. Just this scene with Michael and this light and us praying. Then I looked on my left and Honor For The Glory Of God was praying with us. I was so excited. Saint Michael said "Do as I say, Rory. Concentrate and pray, now." We went on praying. Michael said that Diane was right to pray the Oh God send us holy priests, all for Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, All for the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, All in union with Saint Joseph... at the end of the Oh mv Jesus save us from the fires of Hell prayer. And then I had forgotten to say that we were on the fourth mystery. And Michael stopped me at this point and said "That's what I mean Rory, think about what you are saying. You need to pray with more attention to what you are doing!" We prayed the fourth and fifth mysteries. I never wanted the experience to end. I slowed way down and the three of us praying was so powerful and beautiful and can not be depicted. We prayed through the fifth mystery and he said that not enough people understood the finding of the Lord in the temple and we needed to contemplate it and understand it better. That we needed to be more aware of this mystery and to research it. We prayed the Hail Holy Queen at the end of the Joyful Mysteries and then he asked me to pray the prayer that he taught the children at Fatima, Most Holy Trinity prayer. He wanted me to pray it three times. We all three prayed it three times with great seriousness and reverence. He said "Share this prayer with your Divine Will Cenacle. Ask them to pray it at the end of the Holy Rosary and pray it three times. " Look away from me Rory Look at God.. Some day you will glimpse God the Father and His might and power. I am nothing. God is everything! Let our hearts reign in the Divine Will of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen! Amen! Amen!" Saint Michael then told me that Honesty For The Glory Of God has suffered with me and could not fly back and forth to God at one point in my life and now he was stronger than ever, lighter than ever, and was moving back and forth between God and myself frequently and strong and beautiful and has gone up in rank. (I don't know what that meant.) However, I wanted to grasp everything and listen intently. Saint Michael went on about something very personal. It has been my worst sin to date and told me Christ had forgiven me, but that the hole left in my soul would be there for some time and not to reveal the sin to anyone, not even Diane. I felt so good about being forgiven. It has been torturing me for years. Even after I confessed to a holy priest and got counseling about it. We talked of Saint Joseph and Padre Pio's intervention in my life, about Diane and Laura and Jenna. He slowly began to fade and told me to keep my eyes on the Lord and to continue praying, fasting, receiving the Holy Eucharist every day if possible in Holy Mass, and to give the Group the message to work on getting the Blessed Sacrament exposed and talked about Beth's question to me about whether I would leave the BIessed Sacrament if it meant my job. I told Saint Michael that I would not leave the Blessed Sacrament alone ever, even if it meant my job. He knew that I was making God happy. He also said God knew of people making fun of me in my life and the suffering that Diane and I have gone through, partly because we were on the wrong path. But now, God was working if someone laughed or made fun because of our faith and Jesus. They were hurting themselves in the long run. He talked of other personal things and asked me to pray for certain people and fast and go to Mass and communion and that God was going to make Christian Soldiers out of Diane and I, and to keep up the hard and holy work. He began to fade. I did not want him to go. He reminded me one last time to look at God and not him. This was an internal locution.

I have seen a crucifix in the sky over a mountain with grass and just a few trees. It formed slowly and was a fire with yellow and red flames. Blood was gushing from the wounds of Christ and falling to the grassy hills below. It will be a great sign and a wonder to behold..
August 1, 1994 (Diane)
I was driving to work, first day at my new job. As I was getting closer to the facility I looked toward the sun and it reminded me of Conyers. The more I looked at it I realized that I was able to look directly at it without it hurting my eyes. The sun became a white spinning disc that I could look directly at, just like the spinning sun at Conyers. Although I was driving, I almost couldn't stop looking at it until I realized I was pulling into the Martin Marietta driveway. I immediately began to pay attention to my driving, when I looked into my rear view mirror I saw pink everywhere. I attributed this to staring at the sun too long. I didn't think about this incident again for most of the day until f went to the Rosary Novena that same evening and I was reminded of it again. I told Rory about it and he was excited about it.
August 2, 1994 (Diane)
I was driving to work again. I had left a little early and as I was approaching the facility as 1 did yesterday, I noticed that the sun was in a different position. I was somewhat relieved. I wasn't sure I wanted to see the sun appear as I had the day before. But the closer I got to work, the sun seemed to be in the same position it was the day before and I was drawn to look at it again. I thought to myself l'Oh, no...". My hands began to shake a little and as f did the previous day, I tried to ignore it, but I was drawn to stare at it and it appeared the same way it did yesterday. A white disc that stood out from the rays or brilliance around it. I parked the car and just sat and as I tried to finish my rosary, I could see yellow in things that were around me. Even my white glass beads on my rosary appeared yellow. I could feel tears welling up in my eyes and I felt shaken. I decided to take out this list of prayers that I had made up a while ago. It had been a couple of weeks since 1 had looked at it. As I began going down the list, I felt like crying even more because I realized that about six or seven of the intentions I had been praying for on my list had been answered. I finished my prayers of thanksgiving and I began to smile and a feeling of peace came over me and I went into work.
August 3, 1994 (Rory)
I am not reporting an incident today, but rather that I awoke at 5:00 A.M. and began to pray the Sorrowful Mysteries. I began to pray very slowly and deliberately as Saint Michael has directed me. The Our Father is becoming so important to me. I didn't realize the beauty and significance of this prayer before. Every word is beginning to mean something to me now. As I was praying Jesus said He was pleased with my prayers and He loved my innocent heart and to write about Him and to ask Diane and I to continue to write down everything that happens to us. I want to go to Mass and receive the Eucharist and fast and pray before the exposed Blessed Sacrament. I went down stairs to pray the novena to Saint Joseph. I am at peace and in confidence about my future and my family is safe. I must keep praying. I read the first few pages of the Thunder of Justice a couple of days ago and last night I got farther into the book and realized that I had been seeing the things being talked about already! I called Bill and he told me that God was attesting to the fact that He was working in me. This whole thing scares me sometimes, but I want to do the Divine Will of God. It is beautiful I know. I don't always see or understand what is happening at the time, but after testing the spirit to make sure it is not Satan and his evil hoards, I am obedient and willing. It is difficult to be good and holy and every day I falter, and every day I love God. Diane and I are getting our prayers answered! Her mother called last Sunday to reconcile after six months of not speaking to one another. We had gone to the priest that married us. He wrote us not two days prior and totd us thanks for sending him some money to be applied toward the church and that he was praying for reconciliation between Diane and her mother. Two days later it happens. We spent all day Sunday talking. Diane's mother had been praying all night! A friend who had been layed off his job found work in his home state and sold his house after we started praying about it. Saint Joseph was involved here also. Diane got a job on the East side of town after asking God for help. I am still on a project that has been doomed and many have lost their jobs here after asking Saint Joseph to intervene and ask for God's hetp. My step daughter was accepted into the Air Force after months of worry and trying. She lost 26 pounds and changed her attitude. She had a hard heart and said she did not believe in Jesus. After Diane and I bought the crucifix (and had it blessed by Father Piatek), Jenna helped me put it up on the wall. She prayed the Holy Rosary that very night for the first time with Diane and I. She left a note that night after Diane and I had gone to bed saying she was looking forward to going to Conyers with us! I know that God wants Diane and I to become Christian Soldiers dedicated to the magnification and intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
August 4, 1994 - a.m. (Diane)
Rory and I had a little bit of a rough morning. I asked him if he had called the Job Line number I had given him for jobs at Information Systems. He said "No." I got upset because I felt that he wasn't helping himself in case he gets layed off from EER. There's a very good possibility that this will happen and I didn't want him to wait until the very last minute and be desperately looking for a job. He got upset with me because he felt that I should be praying for his project to not be cancelled rather than try1ng to find him new work. I didn't understand his being so naive, and became angry that he wanted me to pray for this project that at the most would only last a few more months. He told me that he'd been praying to Saint Joseph about his teaching career and that he needed to fill out paperwork for that. I was just upset that he wasn't paying any attention to what I thought he should do and he just kept asking me to pray about it. After I got in the car and started to drive to work I pulled out my rosary and began to pray. As I was praying I looked up at the sun and I was able to look right at it again as I had the other mornings and the white disc was so apparent. As I was staring at it and trying to drive at the same time I heard a firm, and deep voice say to me "My child, Rory was right." I continued to look at the sun, thinking that I needed to concentrate on my driving but mesmerized by what I was seeing and hearing. Then the voice continued, "Very deep inside of Rory is a great yearning to teach, that is what he should do." And while I was thinking to myself, but what about our income, it would decrease tremendously if he got a teaching job, the voice continued I will take care of you financially." Tears started to whell up in my eyes and all I could do is thank Him and tell Him that I wanted Rory to be happy and I know that teaching would do that, but I was worried about our financial situation, but that if He would take care of us, I believed Him and I said that I would let Rory know as soon as I got to work. He said that I should do that. After I parked my car, I said the first decade of the Joyful Mysteries, my Universal Prayer that I always say, Hail Holy Queen and the Saint Michael and Guardian Angel prayers. While I reciting all of these prayers, I was looking out onto the lake and up in the sky, right above a small white cloud was a pale gold puff (like a yellow cloud). It remained there the whole time I was praying. After the 1 st decade, I recited the Glory Be, the Oh My Jesus Forgive Us Our Sins and then it started to fade, as soon as I began to recite, God Our Father Send Us Holy Priests, the yellow puff got real bright. Then it went away. I made the sign of the cross and went into work.
August 4,1994 - p.m. (Diane)
Tonight after Mass and dropping Rory off at his car, I was driving toward home and I began to say the Sorrowful Mysteries. I was only first decade, when I looked up at the sun and as p1ain as can be, it appeared to me as it has been the last couple of days. I was able to look directly at it while I prayed. I just continued to pray and stare and drive. Now that 1 think about it, I'm not really even sure how I got home. After parking the car in front of the house, I was walking to the mail box, which is across the street and felt compelled to continue looking at the sun. All around the sun was a large mass of yellow like fog. Like a haze. I kept turning my back and then looking back, thinking that maybe it was my imagination. Just as I was entering the front door I turned to look at it again and there was a red haze around it. I immediately threw everything in my hands on the table and I felt compelled to kneel in my front doorway and pray. I grabbed my rosary and with my front door open and the sun beaming down through my doorway I began to pray the Sorrowful mysteries where I had left off. The haze around the sun kept changing back and forth from yellow to red. I tested it, by saying "May the Precious Blood of Jesus cover me, and Bow Down and say that Jesus is Your Lord and Sav10r." It repeated, "Jesus is My Lord and Savior." I was praying slowly and fervently but I kept thinking to myself, I hope nobody walks by and sees me praying in my front doorway, they'll think I'm crazy. But no one did. Laura was at a neighbors house. I did want Rory to get home quickly though so that I could share it with him. However, I finished the Rosary, got up, composed myself and Rory came home. As he walked up the driveway, his face had a yellow glow and it was around his head also. I told him all about what had happened. He came home with flowers for me, that why he was a little late.
August 8, 1994 (Rory)
On Friday, August 5th I saw the miracle of the sun. I almost ran into someone ahead of me as I was driving to work. I had been looking at the sun on previous occasions as Diane had been seeing a miraGle put by God. It was a perfect white disk inside the yellow sun that protruded and spun and pulsated. There was beautiful orange-yellow hallow around the whole affair. It reminded me of the Eucharist. Since that experience I have been more aware of the Eucharist and hearing priests talk about the respect and beauty and need for the Eucharist and the Blessed Sacrament. I am so on fire with the Lord and Mary and the Angels and Saints. It only makes the most perfect sense to be good and continue my daily struggles with satan and his evil hordes of demons. The closer I get to Our Lord, the more I get attacked and am tortured. There are break throughs, though, and now I am feeling so peaceful and much more humble. I wanted to shout it from the mountain tops everything that has been happening to me. But, fortunately, I have the experienced older and wiser members of my prayer group leading me in such matters and am quiet and inward. I have a more purposeful existence and feel directed. I know that this life is short and the world may come to an end in my life time, and yet if I am prepared in my heart and continue to pray and fast and go to Mass and pray to grow in faith, hope, and charity toward God and my brothers and sisters, then I will be ready and blessed. It turns out that Bill saw the same miracle of the sun on the same morning - August 5th.
Lou, at Rosary last evening said that God told her that I was saying the rosary the way He liked it said. I hugged her. I had not told her about Saint Michael and that I was being coached on praying.
August 10, 1994 (Rory)
Today, a group of five or six people are coming over to Saint Peter and Paul's for a visit to Our Lord with me and pray together. "If two or more are gathered in My Name..." I love to make a visit alone, but I am so happy that I can take some others with me. I am sure that God wants that. One of people is not even a Catholic! I have noticed that I can hear that voice of God or an angel or a saint and test
them every time with saying that Jesus is my Lord and savior or ask them to say that I cover myself with the blood of Jesus or I bow down before God the Father, and always we pray together, and feel peace in my heart. Although many times satan will appear and tempt or try to ruin my peace. I am accepting this growing relationship with God with peace and calmness. It seems so filled with light and goodness.

I have been wanting more and more to just be with the Lord all the time. The world does not interest me. I love my family and will continue to support and love them. I will continue to be responsible. I just feel so much more spiritual now. Diane sees the the miracle of the sun every day now and it tS still not a matter-of-fact thing to her. It seems that the sky is a place of specialness for her. The clouds are different to her and she is always looktng up. Jesus introduced His mother to me at Mass in a special way tonight. I felt overwhelmed and a special closeness to Our Blessed Lady. I also felt that Blessed Kateri Tekakwttha will be in touch with me more after tonight. I prayed to Saint John the apostle for intercession also as he was a special protector of Christ's Holy Mother and Christ especially loved John on this earth.

I still see the miracle of the sun. Rory read in Thunder of Justice that sometimes the traveling picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe is associated with this miracle, but we returned the traveling Guadalupe two days ago and I can still look at the sun with no effort. I still see the white disc with different colored hazes around it. Why is this happening to me? What does it mean? Rory keeps telling me to ask the Lord why, but I (unlike him) have a hard time listening and hearing the voices that he does. I've tried to ask but I don't seem to get any answers. Why does everything in the skies look so different to me now? The clouds seem to be closer to the earth and they seem to envelop the Orlando area in a circular fashion, unlike the way the sky used to look. I remember the clouds being distant on the horizon and moving infinitely away from me (actually I really didn't pay much attention to the sky, except if bad weather was coming). Now the sky seems to be in my face (so to speak) at all ttmes. I remember when Rory & I went to Montana a couple of summers ago, I had noticed how much closer the sky seemed to the earth, but the explanation was that we were at such high elevations. But Florida I just don't know. I wish I had some answers, but all I know is that I have found myself looking up at either the sun or the sky and clouds, and I break into a smile and feel a tremendous sense of peace and tranquility. About a week ago I had a dream. I was with Rory and some other people I didn't know real well. But we were outside when all of a sudden up in the sky was a gigantic reddish-orange cross. We all immediately fell to our knees and I. remember looking up and seeing a plane fly by and it looked like it was moving very slowly and it looked so miniscule compared to the cross in the sky. Then my dream switched to another scene. We were in this apartment complex with balconies. I remember feeling a little anxious and when I went out on the balcony and looked down an eerie feeling came over me. There wasn't anyone in sight except for two men in uniforms, sort of patrolling the area. Their uniforms were not the typical armed services uniforms of today. They looked mixed & matched. The area outside of our shelter was immaculately clean, no cars or anything were on the road. When I came back in from the balcony I remember greeting Rory at the door. He had a suitcase, I asked him what was going on. He said we had to hide. Then I looked toward the balcony and an old lady was leaning against the balcony wall as if she was thinking about climbing over the short wall when all of a sudden once of these uniformed men came out of nowhere and threw her off the balcony onto the pavement below. I was horrified. I woke up immediately after that with my heart pounding.

I was praying the Holy Rosary in front of the Crucifix and Jesus showed me a vision. I discerned Him to make sure as I always do.. He showed me a cloudy, grey, white sky following the three days of darkness and all of us are confused and it is raining out. We are wondering about where we are to go or what we are to do and questioning and afraid and tired. Christ's Holy Face appears in the sky and tells us lovingly to go home or to our shelters and rest. We do as He says and He puts us into a deep, deep sleep. While we are asleep the Father prepares the earth as a paradise never before seen.
August 18, 1994 (Rory & Diane)
We were reading from the Poem of the Man-God by Maria Valtorta. It was the healing of Simon-Peter's Mother-in-law. A beautiful scent of roses or violets came over the room. We went down on our knees and praised the Lord. We looked for some origin of the scent. We could not find the origin. It was the heavenly scent. we both had wonderful prayer sessions that night.
August 19, 1994 (Diane)
As I was driving to work again I saw the miracle of the sun. I began to pray to Jesus and asked him if He could please have His Mother talk to me about some personal concerns I've been having and also about some small doubts that I've had about being installed in the Secular Order of Mary. After t parked the car and was facing the lake, I felt this tremendous sense of peace come over me. I began to say the rosary when I stopped and listened and I asked the Blessed Virgin if she was with me. She began speaking to me and I discerned her. She said that she will always bow
down to the Almighty Father. She eased my doubts about joining the Order and asked me to do some other things to take care of the personal concerns I was having. I asked her if she was praying with me last night as I felt her presence in our bedroom especially after Rory and I experienced a flora.! scent while reading together. She told me that she had been kneeling and praying beside me the whole time and that I should concentrate less on the picture of her which I kneel in front of when I pray sometimes. I told her I needed to get into work because of the time although I didn't want to stop talking to her. She said "Go and remember her Son throughout the day as I worked and to worry less about some of the things that I've been concerned with."

Thy Kingdom Come Thy Will Be Done Its about Adam and Eve before original sin and Mary our Sorrowful Mother, and Luisa Piccarreta. They all were in God's Divine Will. An intelligence and love of Our Lord. A death of their own wills, to let the Divine Will reign in their hearts forever. Their innocence and obedience and purity allowed the gift of the Divine will to reign. It is a gift from the Father through the Son and inspired and maintained by the Holy Spirit. The Divine Will travels into us if we become conduits or pipes whereby He passes into every atom of us and intermingles until we breathe as He breathes as He feels as He thinks as He hears as He sees as He touches as He heals as He believes as He knows as He... on to infinity. Luisa made rounds in a Divine state. And so should we make rounds. Rounds of creation going together into every creature of the past, present, and future and let the Father and Holy Spirit perfect glory in each instant of the existence of all creatures. Rounds of the Holy Angels that give God perfect glory, perfect adoration, and perfect gratitude to God for as long as God shall be God. Let us make rounds in Christ's Holy Passion and Glorification, feeling His sorrow and His pain and His resurrection and His glorious ascension and give the Father the greatest possible glory and do it for everyone in the past, present, and future. And into every snow flake and into the sun and into every human starting with Adam and Eve and at every instant in the past, present, and future and all together praise God, and be grateful to God, and adore God and love God for existence and do it all together as one voice, one mind, one heart in one thought in one instant and through all eternity that is... then and only then will "Thy Will be done as it is in Heaven."

I saw four tired, hungry and travel weary men in a dream last night. I did not know any of them. I thought they were criminals, perhaps robbers. They were talking about a house that they knew about. I thought they meant to rob the house. They headed in the direction of the house looking tired and ragged, hollow eyed. When they got to the house, to my surprise there were people there. Many, many people and barb wire fence around the house. It was a common three bedroom house, alone with other houses destroyed around it. The people did not want to let the men into the house, but one of the owners, a woman said, I know one of the men, let them in. They were taken in. There were many, many people there and they were being fed, a little salad and potatoes. One person was saying it was Khadafi. He shot six missiles and one hit New York City. He had given himself up after destroying six cities. One man said we should have kept the Pershing missile and that he used to work for Martin Marietta.

I have not been writing things down as Ron Lee advised me to fight against my visions and to not accept them and have nothing to do with them. However they kept coming and slowed down. Some were satan (Lucifer) of course and some were imagination (which is a gift from God also). Diane and I consecrated ourselves to the DIVINE WILL yesterday. Friday night we had a Secular Order of Mary meeting with Ron Lee. It was Spirit filled. God released me from guilt about my past sins. Ron told Diane and I that the visions were from God and about God. I felt the Spirit surge through me and Diane saw the Sorrowful Mother blue grey light go through her and Ron saw it also at the same time during a blessing from God. I feel moved to write about some of my recent visions now. On Mary's birthday (September 8th) at Mass during the evening I saw the Assumption of Our Lady. It was filled with heavenly 1ight and angels and sacredness with Our Blessed Mother enraptured and clothed in light going up to heaven. I am moved as I write this, though it is nothing flowery in words, it was an astounding experience. Yesterday during the Divine Will seminar I felt moved several times and while helping Ron catch people during blessings with a relic from the real cross of Jesus, I saw my hands completely bathed in light, the same light I saw around Mary. This morning Jesus told me to talk with Jennifer and Michael and Lou and Dick. I am hesitant, but He will find the words for me. He wants them to join the order dedicated to His Mother, to help Him save souls. I will do it because He told me to. I discerned Him. He told me to tell Lou also that I was to emulate the apostle John, and that she could help me and teach me. I already have started to read up on Saint John. He
wrote the Apocalypse which I thought was complete hog-wash and science fiction a few years ago. I am supposed to take a verse from there and Genesis to Lou as a matter of fact. The following: Genesis 1 :24 "Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." Revelation to John 1:4 "To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, everyone who pierced him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.
September 27, 1994 (Rory)
Bill wants to discern what happens to me. I was upset about that at first, but Jesus wants discernment. I prayed at Mass about it and the reading was speaking directly to me. Luke 9:46:50 - The story of the disciples arguing among one another about who is greatest, and Christ telling them to be like a little one, like a child to enter the Kingdom. I am the littlest apostle of the new age and nothing, I must remember this, and pray for humility. I will let Bill and Joy discern me and answer any questions. Jesus has given me some readings to share with them and my only request is that we pray each time before I am discerned. When I told Jennifer and Michael about Jesus talking to me, I just wanted to get it over with and did not expect them to react the way they did. It was peaceful and beautiful. They had already been moved by God and were going to join the Order of Mary. It was a confirmation for me to come to them. It was wonderful. Lou reacted very positively also. She said she already new that I was to emulate John the evangelist before I said it, and she knew about joining the Order. I did not tell her yet about something else Jesus wants me to tell her. I don't have the heart and need to pray more about it. Its that Jesus will keep Dick alive longer to help with His work if she (they) join. I must pray about that and ask God to give me a sign. The First Letter of John 18: Children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come; therefore we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us but they were not of us; for if they had been of us they would have continued with us; but they went out, that it would be plain that they all are not of us. But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and you all know. I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and know that no lie is of the truth.
September 27, 1994 after work (Rory)
I went to Lou's house because I wanted to make sure that I told her part of the message I was leaving out, because of fear and I didn't have the heart to tell her. But I felt it was important to do what Jesus wanted me to and I couldn't get it out of my mind. I prayed about it and decided to stop by her house on the way to Mass. I prayed earlier in the day for a sign and even tried to fake myself out with things that were not really signs. Jesus told me to not rationalize, but to just do it, although I did not have to. It was my free will. On the way over to Lou's house at the corner of 436 and Aloma I was at stop light and looked up to see a bumper sticker that read "God said it! I believe it! And I can't remember the last sentence, and it was partially torn off. but I distinctly heard Jesus say to me. This is your sign. I was shaking like a leaf and tried to calm down. Lou received my message that Jesus would keep Dick alive longer if she and he joined the Order of Mary and He would save souls through them who would otherwise go to hell with seriousness and faith. She said that she didn't believe me at first, but after discernment, prayer and months she believes my happenings are authentic and had a message written down for me from Jesus about humility. We talked and then I felt great relief and went to Mass with renewed jubilation. Jesus told me I could go to heaven without being his going through this and I did not have to, but I could help other people and gain many graces. I begged Him to not release me from His Divine Will and He consoled me and told me He loved me very much. The readings at Mass spoke to me.
September 29, 1994 (Rory)
I had an inspired dream two nights ago. I dreamt that I was with some other men. I had never seen these men or did not know them. One of the men was drunk and we were taking him home. He was mean and obnoxious. He had crazy eyes and was belligerent and difficult to handle. We knew he shouldn't drive. We were in a convertible and he tried to jump out a few times when we were moving. We finally got him home and as dreams go, I followed him invisibly. He could not see me but I was behind him and went with him into his house. He proceeded to beat his wife who was complaining about his drinking. I was horrified and gripped. His two little children looked on with panic and dread. They began to cry and scream. He hit them and stumbled to the closet and got a unopened bottle of vodka and held up and exclaimed "This is my god. It is the only thing that relieves me and gives me comfort." I was sickened and was worried about the woman. She was crying on her knees in the kitchen with the children. She was praying to Jesus.. At that time Jesus came to me and gently woke me. I was in a state of being totally awake in mind, but not in body. I was flooded with the peace and light of the Lord. He asked me to get my rosary and began to pray. I discerned Him and began to pray the Sorrowful Mysteries. I was very saddened by my dream. God relaxed me and filled me with His love, mercy, and peace. He told me to pray for all the abused women and children from the beginning of time until the end of time and to invoke all the angels and saints and especially His holy mother to pray with me. I did this and re-consecrated myself to the Virgin's Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Jesus told me that my prayers dedicated to Him through the mediatrix of Mary was magnified an infinite amount of times from the world's faithful hearts through her heart to Jesus's Sacred Heart. As I prayed I was with Him in the agony in the garden and saw some more of my sins from the past and was sickened and He forgave me, but asked me to confess them to a priest later for grace and absolution. I agreed. During the Scourging at the Pillar, I was in the room and was crying as the soldiers were tearing the flesh of Him and He told me he could be the Lamb of God and not cry out because He was offering His pain for the sins of human kind from the beginning of time until the end of time and I saw different women and children throughout time and space who were being abused by men. Jesus was taking me on rounds to see these women. My mind raced with seeing them and prayed slowly, fervently and was sweating and my hands and feet hurt. He told me this was little pain and called me his Itttiest apostle and that my littlest pain offered to Htm through the advocate of His holy mother was magnified an tnfinite amount of times and by the littlest one that He would give me graces. He t01d me to take my Secular Order of Mary crucifix and put it on. I prayed with my rosary in my left hand and took the crucifix in my right hand. Lucifer, the devil told me at one point to take my hand off the crucifix, as it was hurting and asleep. And then asked if 1 would like a hole in my hand and it scared me, and he laughed. I would not remove my hand. It sounded like Jesus, but then changed, when I asked to leave in the name of Jesus Christ, and satan left me. I prayed and felt great sadness and offered my littlest of pains to Our Lord through His mother and was gifted with happiness and contentment. I did not want to leave the presence of Jesus, but He asked me to wake Diane and talk with her after I prayed the rest of the rosary. He told me to write all this and He would help me with the writing.
October 2, 1994 (Rory - took place while working on Friday, September 30)
Jesus told me while I was outside looking at His beautiful nature that He created, "The peace you feel now is nothing compared to the wonderful immaculate, pure, absolute, simple, complete, perfect PEACE. Later He told me while I was working, "You must be invisible soldiers in Christ. You must carry nothing with you, I mean on your person that would cause you to sin against Me when you are ftghting My holy war. Carry everything in your mind, as satan cannot read your mind. Practice now saying your prayers while doing something else... At work, at play, at different moments during the day or night so onlookers won't know. Contact Me in your mind. Be in My Divine Will so that on a second's notice from Me I will be able to save your life or the lives of loved ones, brothers and sisters of the New Era."
October 11, 1994 (Rory)
We had a Divine Will meeting on last Friday night. I shared with the others what Jesus told me to keep in my heart until He was able to speak through me. I decided to keep these things to myself and tell the indiv1duals by themselves. However, Bill wanted me to share my revelations. I was moved by Jesus to do so. I told Beth Jesus did not want her to work for Carly Corporation, as there was evil activity there and it was not good. She already knew this. I told her that Mary did not visit Denise. It was satan. I told Harry that Jesus wanted him to be less concerned with books and the written word. He said I was wrong and that maybe Galdys, not him. The group discerned me and said I got the right family but the wrong person and that it sometimes happens and prophecy can be mis-interpreted. I told Bill that Jesus wanted him to start wearing a scapular. I told Joy not to be afraid of Jesus's Passion and to pray the Passion more and take it into her heart.
Later He told me while I was working, "You must be invisible soldiers in Christ. You must carry nothing with you; I mean on your person that would cause you to sin against Me when you are fighting My holy war. Carry everything in your mind, as satan cannot read your mind. Practice now saying your prayers while doing something else... At work, at play, at different moments during the day or night so onlookers won't know. Contact Me in your mind. Be in My Divine Will so that on a second's notice from Me I will be able to save your life or the lives of loved ones, brothers and sisters of the New Era."
A Meditation on Divine Mercy and Divine Will (Author - anonymous)
Divine Will - Luisa Piccarreta was born on April 23, 1865 the Sunday after Easter (Divine Mercy Sunday), in Corato, Bari, to Nicola Vito and Rosa Tarantino, who had five daughters: Maria, Rachele, Filomena, Luisa and Angela. A few hours after Luisa's birth, her father wrapped her in a blanket and took her to the main church for baptism. Her mother had not suffered the pangs of labor: her birth was painless. Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary - 299. I desire that the first Sunday after Easter be the Feast of Mercy.
Divine Will - Luisa, having accepted the role of victim, came to experience a most peculiar condition: every morning she found herself rigid, immobile, huddled up in bed, and no one could move her because of her weight, as if she were a large piece of lead, nor could they stretch any of her members, to raise her arms or move her head or legs as they were strongly stiffened no one was able to stretch her out,. Her body assumed a rock-like hardness. Her tiny frame grew so heavy that no one could lift it. In this death-like state, Luisa was totally paralyzed, although she retained consciousness and suffered excruciating pains. As we know, it required the presence of a priest who, by blessing her with the sign of the Cross with his thumb on the back of her hands Reciting at the same time the Trisagion prayer of the Byzantine liturgy "Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, Have Mercy on us." This dispelled that corpse-like rigidity - then the body of Luisa came round and started to move, and her sister could lift her easily and with no strain, placing her in her usual and only position, sitting on her little bed.
Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary: 476. This prayer will serve to appease My wrath. You will recite it for nine days, on the beads of the rosary, in the following manner: First of all, you will say one Our Father and Hail Mary and the I Believe in God. Then on the Our Father beads, you will say the following words: "Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world." On the Hail Mary beads you will say the following words: "For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us and on the whole world." In conclusion, three times you will recite these words" Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Divine Will - Volume 6, April 16, 1904 -Jesus and God the
Father speak about Mercy. - Continuing in my usual state, I found myself outside
of myself, and I saw a multitude of people, and in their midst one could hear
noises of bombs and gun shots. People were dropping dead or wounded, and
those who were left would flee up to a palace nearby; but the enemies would go
up there and kill them, more surely than those who remained outside. So I
said to myself: 'How I wish I could see whether the Lord is there in the
midst of these people, so as to say to Him: 'Have mercy - pity on these
poor people!' So I went round and round and I saw Him as a little Child;
but little by little He kept growing, until He reached the perfect age. I
drew near Him and I said: 'Amiable Lord, don't You see the tragedy that is
happening? You don't want to make use of mercy any more? Do You
perhaps want to keep this attribute as useless, which has always glorified your
Incarnate Divinity with so much honor, forming a special crown on your august
head, and bejeweling You with a second crown, so wanted and loved by You - which
is souls?' Now, while I was saying this, He told me: 'Enough, enough, do
not go any further; you want to speak of Mercy, and what about Justice - what
are we going to do with It? I have told you and I repeat to you: 'It
is necessary that Justice follow Its course'." So I replied:
'There is no remedy - why then leave me on this earth when I can no longer
placate You and suffer in the place of my neighbor? Since it is so, it is
better if You let me die.' At that moment I saw another person behind the
shoulders of blessed Jesus, and He told me, almost making a sign with His eyes:
"Present yourself to my Father and see what He tells you.' I
presented myself, all trembling, and as soon as He saw me, He told me:
"Why have you come to Me?" And I:
'Adorable Goodness, infinite Mercy, knowing that You are Mercy Itself, I have come to ask for your Mercy - Mercy on your very images, Mercy on the works created by You; Mercy on nothing else but your creatures themselves.' And He said to me: "So, it is Mercy that you want. But if you want true Mercy, after Justice has poured Itself out It will produce abundant fruits of Mercy.
Divine Mercy - In answer to Luisa's request for Mercy, Saint Mary Faustina of the Blessed Sacrament was born the following year on August 2, 1905.
Divine Will - The archbishop at that time, Giuseppe Bianchi Dottula (December 22, 1848-September 22,1892), came to know of what was happening in Corato; thought it right to delegate to Luisa a special confessor, Fr. Michele De Benedictis. Fr. Michele, ordered her to eat at least once a day, even if she immediately threw up everything she had swallowed. Luisa was to live on the Divine Will alone. It was under this priest that she received permission to stay in bed all the time as a victim of expiation. This was in 1888. Luisa remained nailed to her bed of pain, from New Year 1889 she was to remain there permanently.
Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary - 1264...Act of total abandonment to the will of God, which is for me, love and mercy itself. Jesus-Host, whom I have this very moment received into my heart, through this union with You I offer myself to the heavenly Father as a sacrificial host, abandoning myself totally and completely to the most merciful and holy will of my God. From today onward, Your will, Lord is my food. Take my whole being dispose of me as You please. Whatever Your fatherly hand give me, I will accept with submission, peace and joy.
Divine Will -Volume 11 - April 10, 1912 - The souls who have more trust will shine more in the crown of the divine mercy. Continuing in my usual state, as soon as blessed Jesus came, He told me: "My daughter, the souls who will shine the most, like bright gems in the crown of my divine mercy, are the souls who have more trust, because the more trusting they are, the more they give space for the attribute of my Mercy to pour into them all the Graces that they want. On the other hand, the soul who does not have real trust closes the graces within Me, remaining poor and unequipped, while my Love remains contained within Me and suffers greatly. In order not to suffer so much, and to be able to freely pour out my Love, I deal more with those souls who trust than with the others. With these souls I can pour out my Love, I can play, I can cause loving contrasts, since there is no worry that they may feel ashamed or afraid; rather, they become more brave and take everything in order to love Me more. Therefore, trusting souls are the outpouring and the amusement of my Love - the most graceful and the richest ones."
Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary -102. When you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith on behalf of some sinner, I will give him the grace of conversion. This is the prayer:"O Blood & Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of Mercy for us, I trust in You."
Divine Will - In 1994, on the day of the Feast of Christ the King, in the main church, Archbishop Carmelo Cassati, in the presence of a large crowd including foreign representatives, officially opened the beatification cause of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.
Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary - 83. Write this: before I come as the just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort.
Divine Will - Volume 10 - February 3, 1912 If in the soul there is no purity, upright working and love, she cannot be the mirror of Jesus. Continuing in my usual state, my always lovable Jesus came, and placing His holy hand under my chin, He told me: "My daughter, you are the reflection of my glory." Then He added: "In the world I need mirrors to which to go and look at Myself. Only then can a fount serve as mirror in which people can reflect themselves... Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary -163. O Most Holy Trinity! As many times as I breathe, as many times as my heart beats, as many times as my blood pulsates through my body, so many thousand times do I want to glorify Your mercy.I want to be completely transformed into Your mercy and to be Your living reflection, O Lord.
Divine Will - November 9, 1906 -Effects of meditating continuously on the Passion. Finding myself in my usual state, I was thinking about the Passion of Our Lord; and while I was doing this, He came and told me: "My daughter, one who meditates continuously on my Passion and feels sorrow for it and compassion for Me, pleases Me so much that I feel as though comforted for all that I suffered in the course of my Passion; and by always meditating on it, the soul arrives at preparing a continuous food.
Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary - 267 Jesus told me that I please Him best by meditating on His sorrowful Passion, and by such meditation much light falls upon my soul. He who wants to learn true humility should reflect upon the Passion of Jesus.
Divine Will - Blessed Hannibal Maria Di Francia - Messina, October 29, 1926 - Intelligentes quae sit voluntas Dei. We begin, with this first printing, the publication of more than 20 handwritten volumes of sublime revelations which, always excepting the judgments of the Holy Church, we believe to have been given by Our Lord Jesus Christ to a soul, a dearest daughter and disciple of His, who is the pious author of the Hours of the Passion. Even now we make known that these revelations, which are continuing and will continue, we don't know for how much longer, have as their goal the establishment of the complete Triumph of the Kingdom of the Divine Will upon earth.
Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary - 304. O my Jesus, my only hope, thank You for the book which You have opened before my soul's eyes. That book is Your Passion which You underwent for love of me. It is from this book that I have learned how to love God and souls. In this book there are found for us inexhaustible treasures. O Jesus, how few souls understand You in Your martyrdom of love!
Divine Will - March 24, 1922
Every Act Done in the Divine Will Multiplies the Sacramental Life of Jesus. As I continued in my usual state, my ever-lovable Jesus came and said to me: "My daughter, when the soul does its acts in my Will it multiplies my Life. If it does ten acts in my Will, it multiplies Me ten times; and if it does twenty, one hundred, one thousand, or even more acts in my Will, so many times does it multiply Me. It is similar to the sacramental consecration. I am multiplied into as many hosts as are consecrated. But in the case of the consecration I need the hosts to be able to multiply Myself, and I need a priest to consecrate them. Whereas in my Will I need the acts of creatures which are living hosts, not dead like the hosts before their consecration, so that my Will may consecrate and enclose Me in these acts. Thus am I multiplied in each act of a soul when it is done in my Will. Because of this my Love finds its complete release and satisfaction in souls that do my Will and live within my Volition. It is they who constantly provide the basis not just for the acts that all creatures owe Me, but also for my Sacramental Life itself. How many times does my Sacramental Life remain enclosed and shackled within a few consecrated hosts. Few are those who receive communion and often there are no priests to consecrate Me. My Sacramental Life not only fails to be multiplied as it desires, but often ceases to exist. Oh, how my Love suffers! I would like to multiply my Life every day into as many hosts as there are creatures, so that I could give Myself to them. Yet I wait in vain; my Will remains impotent. But what I have decided, shall be. That is why I am taking a different path and multiply Myself, alive, in each act done by creatures in my Will. I want these acts to bring about the multiplication of my Sacramental Life. Oh yes, only those souls who live in my Will provide all the communions creatures fail to receive, and make up for all the consecrations priests have failed to make! In them I will find everything, even the multiplication of my Sacramental Life. I repeat, your mission is very great. I could not have picked you for a higher, more noble, more sublime, more divine mission. There is nothing that I will not concentrate in you, even to the multiplication of my Life. I will perform new prodigies of Grace never performed before. Therefore, be attentive and faithful to Me. Make sure that my Will always finds life in you. Then in my own Will living in you, I will find the work of Creation whole and complete, with all the rights that are due me and with everything I desire."
Divine Will March 15, 1912
How The Divine Will is the Sanctity of Sanctities"My daughter, my Will is the Sanctity of Sanctities. Therefore, the soul that does my Will according to the perfection that I teach you - that is, on earth as it is in Heaven - no matter how little or ignorant she may be, she will surpass even such Saints, despite their prodigies, striking conversions, and miracles. When comparing souls that do my Will - who are in my third 'FIAT' - with such Saints, the former are queens, and all others as if they were at their service. The soul that does my Will appears as if she were accomplishing nothing, yet she accomplishes everything, because by remaining in my Will, she acts divinely, secretly, and in a surprising way. Such souls are lights which illuminate, winds that purify, fire that burns, miracles that make miracles occur. Such souls are channels, and in these souls, power resides. Thus, they are the feet of the missionary, the tongue of the preacher, the strength of the weak, the patience of the infirm, the sovereignty, the obedience of subjects, the tolerance of the calumniated, the steadfastness in dangers, the heroism of heroes, the courage of the martyrs, the sanctity of sanctities, and so forth. By remaining in my Will, they partake in all good things that can exist on earth and in Heaven. "Behold, this is why I am able to say that they are my true Hosts - but living Hosts, not dead. For the accidents that form the Host (Eucharist) are neither full of life, nor do they affect my Life, but the soul that remains in my Divine Will is full of life, and in doing my Will, she affects and partakes in all that I do. This is why these consecrated Hosts of my Will are more dear to Me than my very own Sacramental Hosts. And if I have reasons for existing in my Sacramental Hosts, they are to form these Consecrated Hosts of my Will. My daughter, the pleasure that I draw from my own Will is so great, that scarcely upon hearing it mentioned, I become elated with joy and call all of Heaven to make merry. Imagine, for yourself, what it will be like for those souls who do my Will. I find all happiness in them, and I give all happiness to them. Their life is the life of the Blessed. Only two things are fixed in their hearts: they desire, they long for my Will and for my Love. They find few other things to do, and yet they do everything. Their very virtues remain absorbed in my Will and in my Love. Thus, their virtues no longer have anything to do with them, because my Will contains, possesses, absorbs all, but in a Divine way, in an immense and interminable way. This is the life of the Blessed!"
Divine Mercy - Saint Faustina's Diary - 1826...When I had received Jesus in Holy Communion, my heart cried out with all its might, "Jesus, transform me into another host! I want to be a living host for You. You are a great and all-powerful Lord; You can grant me this favor." And the Lord answered me, You are a living host, pleasing to the Heavenly Father. But reflect: What is a host? A sacrifice. And so...? Oh my Jesus, I understand the meaning of "host", the meaning of sacrifice. I desire to be before Your Majesty a living host; that is, a living sacrifice that daily burns in Your honor. When my strength begins to fail, it is Holy Communion that will sustain me and give me strength. Indeed, I fear the day on which I would not receive Holy Communion. My soul draws astonishing strength form Holy Communion. O living Host, light of my soul!
Divine Will - Luisa's death which occurred on March 4,1947, Luisa's body remained exposed for public veneration (with the permission of the health service's doctor) to satisfy the thousands of people of Corato and the surrounding area who poured into the house day and night. Everyone was under the impression that Luisa had fallen asleep and was not dead. In fact, her body, laid on the bed, did not undergo rigor mortis. It was possible to raise her hands, move her head in all directions, bend her fingers without forcing them, and raise and bend her arms. Her eyelids could be lifted and one could see her shining eyes, undimmed by death: Luisa seemed alive, as if a placid and serene sleep had stopped her for an instant. Everyone was convinced that she wasn't dead, and some said: "Call the bishop and you will see that by making the sign of the cross he will awaken her; isn't Luisa a daughter of obedience?". A council of doctors, summoned by the religious, civil and health authorities, declared after a careful examination that beloved Luisa really was dead. As long as she remained exposed for public veneration, she gave no sign of corruption nor did her body emanate any odors of putrefaction. It proved impossible to lay her out, so that a special "p" shaped coffin had to be built for her, the front and sides of glass so that everyone could see her for the last time. Luisa the Saint, who for about 70 years had always remained sitting up in bed without ever leaving her room.
