5/31 Offering of the human will to the Celestial Queen – Prayer for May 31st!


Most Sweet Mama, here I am, prostrate at the foot of Your Throne. I am Your little daughter, I want to give You all my filial love, and as Your daughter, I want to braid all the little sacrifices, the ejaculatory prayers, my promises to never do my will, which I have made many times during this month of Graces. And forming a crown, I want to place it on Your lap as attestation of love and thanksgiving for my Mama.

But this is not enough; I want You to take it in Your hands as the sign that You accept my gift, and at the touch of Your Maternal fingers, convert it into many suns, for at least as many times as I have tried to do the Divine Will in my little acts.

Ah! Yes, Mother Queen, Your daughter wants to give You homages of Light and of Most Refulgent Suns. I know that You have many of these Suns, but they are not the Suns of Your daughter; so I want to give You mine, to tell You that I Love You, and to bind You to Loving me. Holy Mama, You smile at me and, all Goodness, You accept my gift; and I thank You from the heart. But I want to tell You many things; I want to enclose my pains, my fears, my weaknesses, my whole being in Your Maternal Heart, as the place of my refuge—I want to consecrate my will to You. O please! My Mama, accept it; make of it a Triumph of Grace, and a field on which the Divine Will may extend Its Kingdom. This will of mine, consecrated to You, will render us inseparable, and will keep us in continuous relations. The doors of Heaven will not be closed for me, because, as I have consecrated my will to You, You will give me Yours in exchange. So, either the Mama will come and stay with her daughter on earth, or the daughter will go to Live with her Mama in Heaven. O! How Happy I will be.

Listen, dearest Mama, in order to make the consecration of my will to You more solemn, I call the Sacrosanct Trinity, all the Angels, all the Saints, and before all I protest—and with an oath—to make the Solemn Consecration of my will to my Celestial Mama.

And now, Sovereign Queen, as the fulfillment, I ask for Your Holy Blessing, for myself and for all. May Your Blessing be the Celestial Dew which descends upon sinners to convert them, and upon the afflicted to console them. May it descend upon the whole world and Transform it in Good; may it descend upon the purging souls and extinguish the fire that burns them. May Your Maternal Blessing be Pledge of Salvation for all souls.  Amen

5/31 Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will
Meditation 1

***

The Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
In the Ardor of Her Love, feeling Herself the Mother of Jesus,
Mary sets out in search of Hearts to be Sanctified.
Visit to St. Elisabeth; Sanctification of John.

 

The soul to her Celestial Mother:

Celestial Mama, Your poor daughter has extreme need of You. Since You are my Mother and the Mother of Jesus, I feel the right to be near You, to place myself at Your side, and to follow Your Steps in order to model mine. O please! Holy Mama, give me Your hand, and take me with You, that I may learn to behave well in the different actions of my life.

 

Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:

Blessed daughter, how sweet is your company to Me. In seeing that you want to follow Me in order to imitate Me, I feel refreshment for the Flames of Love that devour Me. O! Yes, having you near Me, I will be able to teach you more easily how to Live of Divine Will. While you follow Me, listen to Me.

As soon as I became Mother of Jesus and your Mother, My Seas of Love Doubled, and unable to contain them all, I felt the need to pour them out, and to be the first Bearer of Jesus to creatures, even at the cost of Great Sacrifices. But, what am I saying—Sacrifices? When one really Loves, Sacrifices and Pains are refreshments; they are reliefs and outpourings of the Love that one possesses. O! My daughter, if you do not experience the Good of Sacrifice, if you do not feel how it brings the Most Intimate Joys, it is a sign that the Divine Love does not fill all your soul, and therefore that the Divine Will does not Reign as Queen in you. It alone gives such Strength to the soul as to render her Invincible and Capable of bearing any pain.

Place your hand upon your heart, and observe how many voids of love are in it. Reflect: that secret self-esteem, that becoming disturbed at every slightest adversity, those little attachments you feel to things and to people, that tiredness in good, that bother caused in you by what is not to your liking, are equivalent to as many voids of love in your heart; voids which, like little fevers, deprive you of the strength and of the desire to be filled with Divine Will. O! How you too will feel the Refreshing and Conquering Virtue in your sacrifices, if you fill these voids of yours with love.

My daughter, give Me your hand now, and follow Me, because I will continue to give you My Lessons.

So I departed from Nazareth, accompanied by Saint Joseph, facing a long journey, and crossing mountains to go visit Elisabeth in Judea, who, in her advanced age, had miraculously become a mother. I went to her, not to make her a simple visit, but because I Burned with the desire to bring her Jesus. The Fullness of Grace, of Love, of Light that I felt within Me, pushed Me to bring, to Multiply—to Increase a hundredfold the Life of My Son in creatures.

Yes, My daughter, the Love of Mother which I had for all men, and for you in particular, was so Great, that I felt the Extreme Need to give My Dear Jesus to all, so that all might Possess Him and Love Him. The Right of Mother, given to Me by the Fiat, Enriched Me with such Power as to Multiply Jesus as many times as there are creatures who want to receive Him. This was the Greatest Miracle I could perform: to have Jesus ready to give to whoever desired Him. How Happy I felt.

How I wish that you too, my daughter, in approaching people and in making visits, would always be the bearer of Jesus, capable of making Him known, and yearning to make Him Loved.

After several days of travel, finally I arrived in Judea, and solicitously I hastened to the house of Elisabeth. She came to meet Me in feast. At the greeting I gave her, Marvelous Phenomena occurred. My Little Jesus exulted in My Womb, and fixing on little John in the womb of his mother with the Rays of His Divinity, He Sanctified him, gave him the use of reason, and made known to him that He was the Son of God. And John leaped so vigorously with love and with joy that Elisabeth felt shaken. She too, touched by the Light of the Divinity of My Son, recognized that I had become the Mother of God; and in the emphasis of her love, trembling with gratitude, she exclaimed: “Whence comes to me so much honor, that the Mother of my Lord should come to me?”

I did not deny the Highest Mystery; rather, I humbly confirmed it. Praising God with the song of the Magnificat—Sublime Canticle, through which the Church continuously honors Me—I announced that the Lord had done Great Things in Me, His Handmaid, and that because of this, all peoples would call Me Blessed.

My daughter, I felt Devoured with the Desire to pour out the Flames of Love that Consumed Me, and to reveal My Secret to Elisabeth, who also longed for the Messiah to come upon earth. A Secret is a need of the heart, which irresistibly is revealed to persons who are capable of understanding each other.

Who can ever tell you how much good My Visit brought to Elisabeth, to John, and to their whole household? Each one remained Sanctified, filled with Gladness, felt unusual Joys, and comprehended things unheard-of. And John, in particular, received all the Graces that were necessary for him, to prepare himself to be the Precursor of My Son.

Dearest daughter, the Divine Will does Great and unheard-of things wherever It Reigns. If I worked many Prodigies, it was because It had Its Royal Place in Me. If you let the Divine Will Reign in your soul, you too will become the bearer of Jesus to creatures—you too will feel the Irresistible Need to give Him to all.

 

The soul:

Holy Mama, how I thank You for Your Beautiful Lessons. I feel that they have such Power over me as to make me yearn continuously to Live in the Divine Will. But so that I may obtain this Grace— come, descend into my soul together with Jesus; renew for me the Visit you made to St. Elisabeth and the Prodigies You worked for her. Ah! Yes, my Mama, bring me Jesus—Sanctify me. With Jesus I will be able to do His Most Holy Will.

 

Little Sacrifice:

To honor Me, you will recite the Magnificat three times, in thanksgiving for the Visit I made to St. Elisabeth.

Magnificat

 

My soul proclaims the Greatness of the Lord,

my spirit rejoices in God my Savior

for He has looked with favor on His lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:

the Almighty has done great things for me,

and Holy is His Name.

He has mercy on those who fear Him

in every generation.

He has shown the strength of His arm,

He has scattered the proud in their conceit.

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,

and has lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,

and the rich He has sent away empty.

He has come to the help of His servant Israel

for He has remembered His Promise of mercy,

the promise He made to our fathers,

to Abraham and his children for ever.

 

Ejaculatory Prayer:

Holy Mama, Visit my soul, and prepare in it a Worthy Dwelling for the Divine Will.

5/29 Feast of Corpus Christi

L_LuisaOSCircle a

We (the little family of Luisa) will Joyfully Celebrate, in our own communities,

The Solemnity of Corpus Christi also as “our wedding day with the Lord”

because we are linked to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta

Volume 24 – 6/12/28

            Since it was the Feast of Corpus Domini, I (Luisa) was thinking to myself that that day was The Feast of the Marriage that Blessed Jesus did with souls in the Most Holy Sacrament of Love.

Volume One

“. . . In this state of sufferings I (Jesus) will purify your soul thoroughly, in such a way as to dispose you to form a Mystical Marriage with Me; and after this, I (Jesus) will make the Last Transformation, in such a way that both of us will become like two candles placed on the Fire – one is Transformed into the other and they form a Single One.” 

Volume 36 – 5/17/38 

            Then He added with more Loving Tenderness:

            “My good daughter (Luisa), My Love wants to be tied more and more to (you) the creature, and the more Truths It (My Divine Love) Manifests regarding My Most Holy Divine Will, the more bonds I (Jesus) put between God and herself.

            In Manifesting the Truth, My Divine Love is preparing the Marriage between God and the soul.

            The more It Manifests the more Pomp and Magnificence this Marriage will have.

            Would you like to know what happens then?

            My Truths will be like the dowry needed in order to marry God; to get to know the One (God) who lowers Himself and even ties Himself—only for Love—in the bond of Marriage.

            My Truths touch the creature over and over; They mold her to a New Life;

            They (My Truths) return her to the Beauty of Our Image and Resemblance from the time she was Created, and Impress on her Their kiss of inseparable Union.

            Just one of Our Truths can make a Sea of Prodigies and Divine Creations in the soul who has the goodness to listen to It.

            One Truth can turn a perverted world into a Good and Holy one, because It is one of Our Lives, exposed for the Good of all.

It is a New Sun that We raise in created intellects; a Sun that will let Itself be known through Its Light and Heat, turning into Light and Heat whoever wants to listen.

            Therefore, hiding a Truth that We give from Our Paternal Womb, with so much Love, is the greatest crime. It deprives human generations of the Greatest Good.

            Further, one (Luisa and those linked to Luisa) who Lives in Our Most Holy Divine Will, by Marrying Us (Triune God), makes a Feast for all Saints.

            All of them participate in this Divine Wedding and, because of It, they have their own party in Heaven and another one on earth.

            Each act the creature does in Our Most Holy Divine Will is a Feast; a table sumptuously decked for the Heavenly Regions.

            In return, the Saints give New Gifts.

            They beseech the Lord to Manifest more Truths to the soul (Luisa), to broaden more and more the boundaries of the dowry that God gave to her (and to those linked to her.”)

 

“When one is linked to Luisa, one will also possess the Mystical Marriage because of her”

 

Fiat!

5/29 Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, The Feast of Corpus Christi In the Divine Will

Feast of “Corpus Domini”

(Click here for more on the Feast of Corpus Christi)

Book of Heaven; Volume 24 – June 12, 1928
it was the Feast of Corpus Domini, I was thinking to myself that this day was the feast of the marriage which blessed Jesus did with souls in the Most Holy Sacrament of love.
  And my beloved Jesus, moving in my interior, told me:  “My daughter, the true marriage with humanity was done in Creation.  Nothing was lacking either to the soul or to the body; everything was done with royal sumptuousness.  An immense palace was prepared for the human nature, such that no king or emperor can have one similar to it, which is the whole Universe:  a starry heaven and its vault, a Sun which would never extinguish its light; flourishing gardens in which the happy couple, God and man, was to stroll, amuse itself and maintain the continuous, uninterrupted feast of our marriage; and garments, woven not with matter, but formed of purest light by Our power, as befitted royal persons…  Everything was beauty in man, soul and body, because the One who prepared the marriage and formed it was of unreachable beauty.  So, from the external sumptuousness of the so many enchanting beauties present in the whole of Creation, you can imagine the interior seas of sanctity, of beauty, of light, of science, etc., which the interior of man possessed.  All the acts of man, interior and external, were as many musical keys which formed the most beautiful melodies, sweet, melodious, harmonious, that maintained the joy of the marriage.  And each additional act that he would dispose himself to do, was a new little sonata that he would prepare, to call his spouse to delight with him.

My Divine Will which dominated humanity, brought him the new continuous act and the likeness to the One who had created him and married him.  But in such a great feast man broke the strongest bond, in which lay the whole validity of our marriage and through which it had been in force:  he withdrew from Our Will.  Because of this, the marriage was broken, and since all the rights were lost, only the memory of it was left, but the substance, the life, the effects no longer existed.  Now, the Sacrament of the Eucharist in which my Love overabounded in all possible imaginable ways, cannot be called either the first or the true marriage of Creation, for I do nothing but continue what I did when I was on earth.  According to the needs of souls, with some I make Myself a compassionate doctor in order to heal them, with some a teacher to instruct them, with some a father to forgive them, with some light to give them sight.  I give strength to the weak, courage to the timid, peace to the restless – in sum, I continue my redemptive life and virtue; however, all these miseries exclude the true marriage.  No young man marries a young woman who is ill – at most, he waits for her to recover; or a young woman who is weak and who offends him very often.  And if the groom is a king and loves her, at most he waits for the bride to get well, to love him, and for her condition to become somehow satisfactory, and not so inferior to his.  Now, the condition in which poor humanity finds itself is still that of a poor ill one, and I am waiting for my Will to be known and to reign in the midst of creatures, for It will give them true health, royal garments, and a beauty worthy of Me.  Then will I form again the true and original marriage.”
