Volume 26 – June 27, 1929
Having received Holy Communion, I was offering my Holy Communion for the glory of
Saint Aloysius (__________), and I offered It, as a present for him/her,
everything that Our Lord had done in His Divine Will with His mind,
with His words, His works and His steps, for the accidental glory of
Saint Aloysius (___________) on this his/her feast day.
Now, while I was doing this, my sweet Jesus, moving in my interior,
“My daughter, a more beautiful present you could not give
to dear Saint Aloysius (_____________) on the day of his feast.
As you were offering your Holy Communion and all My Acts done in My Divine Will,
so many suns were formed for as many Acts as I (Jesus) did in the Divine Will while being on earth;
and these suns invested Saint Aloysius (______________),
in such a way that he/she received so much accidental glory from the earth,
that he/she could not receive more.
Only the offerings of Acts done in My Most Holy Divine Will have the virtue
of forming their suns, because, containing the Fullness of Light,
it is no wonder that the Divine Will converts into suns the human acts done in the Divine Will.”

GOD OUR FATHER
(Click here for more information on the Consecration and Feast Day
for the Father of All Mankind)
A son honors his father, and a servant his master.
if then I am a father, where is my honor? (Mal 1:6)
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. (Jn 4:23-24)
And for their sake I consecrate myself,
that they also may be consecrated in truth. (Jn 17:19)
Wouldn’t it be appropriate to consecrate ourselves and the world to the One we were created to return to-God Our Father? Wouldn’t it be, equally appropriate to recite this consecration publicly and to renew it annually on a feast specifically celebrated for God Our Father–“The Father of All Mankind”? Isn’t it time to cleanse, purify, and re-dedicate the Temple of God Our Father–individually and as the Body of Christ?
A chaplet, medal, and litany have been specially designed for the octave approach of this consecration and feast day. All God’s children are invited to use the following spiritual practices and format to consecrate themselves to God Our Father. Although the consecration can be done at any time by setting aside an eight-day period (preferably Sunday to Sunday), it is suggested that (1) it be renewed formally each year on the proposed date (an octave ending on the first Sunday of August, July 29 – August 5 for 2012. The first seven days serve as preparatory steps leading to the final day of assembly and solemn consecration–The Feast of the Father of All Mankind.) and that (2) it be renewed informally each day by praying the chaplet. In addition, the short prayer, “I love You, Father, and I give myself to You” can be prayed throughout the day to help us live our consecration more fully.

The book about the life of Luisa Piccarreta, which introduces the reader to a first acquaintance of the divine message entrusted to her, receives approval even from Church authorities
Behind her ordinary, simple life, made of a few daily acts, as working and praying, an extraordinary scene opens, a mystical life, full of deep spirituality that only Luisa and the priests who were at her side knew
“The seas” of the Divine Will to which Luisa refers in her writings are not yet known. God has his own time and He alone knows when His Kingdom will reach its fulfillment. We need to pray that this happens, spreading those that are our knowledges, after “studying” to be faithful to the message left by the Servant of God in communion with the Church.
With Luisa at our side we are sure to take the right steps. Her mission, in addition to that of “victim soul”, is to bring to everyone the gift of the Divine Will that God made her to experience at first hand to testimony “living as a son and not as a servant.”
Now, it’s time that also others receive this Gift!
Already in October 2005, at the conclusion of the Diocesan inquiry, our Archbishop Mons. Giovanni Battista Pichierri had “felt the need to elaborate a biographical sketch of the Mystic from Corato, which has been achieved in 2014 with the first official publication of the biography “The Sun of my Will” by Prof. Maria Rosaria Del Genio (LEV). Through a conscientious work of research and study Prof.Del Genio, an expert on mystique and the lives of saints, gave birth to the above – mentioned volume, a valuable “document” offering, anyone reads it, the opportunity to know the life and therefore the spirituality of Luisa Piccarreta, so that “the message of the Divine Will may radiate throughout the world … fiat voluntas tua sicut in caelo et in terra, as claimed by Mons. Pichierri in his afterword to the text.
He himself wanted to share this “extraordinary message ” with the bishops from Puglia and the prelates interested in the Cause for beatification of the little daughter of the Divine Will, gifting them with the book. Many responses and opinions about it came to Mons. Pichierri that he faithfully turned to the Association Little Children of the Divine Will.
Here are some of them, with the promise of further updates:
“Thank you for the gift that I really appreciated … I read with attention and spiritual utility the biography of Piccarreta … This beautiful book shows the extraordinary figure of “The Saint from Corato “… example of a life dedicated to the love of Christ in a state, at the same time, of mystical tension and suffering. The book also highlights the particular message and spirituality of the Servant of God on adherence to the Divine Will … The great aspiration of us all is certainly attend the Beatification of the Servant of God … we look forward to the conclusion of the work … to know exactly the theological and mystical vision of Piccarreta. “(Card. Francesco Monterisi- CTV).
“I received the book on Luisa Piccarreta and I thank you wholeheartedly for this initiative, which has become indispensable to make this ” little servant of the Divine Will. ” fully known.
It ‘s true that when the Good and the Truth come from God and reside in humble souls who are completely entrusted to the Church, they cannot remain immersed in darkness… Providence has its way… I remember when with Mons. Cassati we went to the Congregation for the Cause of Saints … now finding myself in front of a book written by a respected author and researcher, published by Libreria Editrice Vaticana was a surprise that filled me with joy. “(Msgr. Michele Seccia-Bishop Teramo-Atri).
“Sending you my regards, I leave you all in the immense sea of the Divine Will” .
From Volume 24; June 12, 1928:
…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 whose Light would never be extinguished; Flourishing Gardens in which the Happy couple, God and man, would 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…”
And from Meditation 6 of the Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will:
…Then will I (Blessed Mother) take on the commitment of forming the Marriage between you and the Fiat; and acting as your True Mother, I will bind the Marriage by giving you the very Life of My Son as Dowry, and My Maternity and all My Virtues as Gift…
The Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will on earth. Queen of Families, Queen of Miracles. Bond of Marriage between the Fiat and the Creature. The Wedding of Cana.
The soul to her Celestial Mother:
Holy Mama, here I am together with You and with Sweet Jesus, to be present at a New Wedding, to see Its Prodigies and comprehend Its Great Mystery, and the extent of Your Maternal Love for me and for all. O please! Mother of mine, take my hand in Yours, place me on Your knees, invest me with Your Love, purify my intelligence, and tell me why You wanted to be present at this wedding.
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
My dearest daughter, My Heart is swollen with Love, and I felt the need to tell you the reason why, together with My Son Jesus, I wanted to be present at this wedding of Cana. Do you think it was because of a simple ceremony? No, daughter, there are Profound Mysteries. Pay attention to Me, and I will tell you New things, and how My Love of Mother was displayed in an Incredible Manner, and the Love of My Son gave True Signs of Paternity and Royalty toward creatures.
Now listen to Me: My Son had come back from the desert, and was preparing Himself for His Public Life; but first He wanted to be present at this wedding, and therefore He allowed Himself to be invited. We went there, not to celebrate, but to work Great Things for the good of the human generations. My Son took the place of Father and King in the families, and I took the place of Mother and Queen. With Our Presence We Renewed the Sanctity, the Beauty, the Order of the Marriage formed by God in the Garden of Eden—that of Adam and Eve—Married by the Supreme Being in order to populate the earth, and to multiply and increase the future generations. Marriage is the substance from which the life of the generations arises; it can be called the trunk from which the earth is populated. The priests, the religious, are the branches; but if it were not for the trunk, not even the branches would have life. Therefore, through sin, by withdrawing from the Divine Will, Adam and Eve caused the family to lose Sanctity, Beauty and Order. And I, your Mama, the New Innocent Eve, together with My Son, went to Reorder that which God did in Eden; and I constituted Myself Queen of families, and impetrated the Grace that the Divine Fiat might Reign in them, to have families that would belong to Me, and I might hold the place of Queen in their midst.
But this is not all, my daughter. Our Love was Burning, and We wanted to make known to them how much We Loved them, and to give them the Most Sublime of Lessons. And here is how: at the height of the lunch, wine lacked, and My Heart of Mother felt consumed with Love, wanting to give help; and knowing that My Son can do anything, with supplicating accents, but certain that He would listen to Me, I say to Him: “My Son, the spouses have no more wine.” And He answers Me: “My hour to do miracles has not yet come.” And I, knowing that He certainly would not deny to Me what His Mama asked of Him, I say to those who are serving the table: “Do whatever My Son tells you, and you will have what you want; even more, you will receive in addition, and in Superabundance.”
My daughter, in these few words I gave a Lesson, the most useful, necessary and sublime for creatures. I spoke with the Heart of Mother and I said: “My children, do you want to be Holy? Do the Will of My Son. Do not move from what He tells you, and you will have His Likeness, His Sanctity in your power. Do you want all evils to cease? Do whatever My Son tells you. Do you want any Grace, even difficult? Do whatever He tells you and wants. Do you also want the necessary things of natural life? Do whatever My Son tells you; because in His Words, in everything He tells you and wants, He encloses such Power that, as He Speaks, His Word contains what you ask for, and makes the Graces that you want arise within your souls. How many see themselves as full of passions, weak, afflicted, misfortuned, miserable; yet, they pray and pray, but because they do not do what My Son tells, they obtain nothing; Heaven seems to be closed for them. This is a sorrow for your Mama, because I see that while they pray, they move away from the Source in which all Goods reside—that is, the Will of My Son.
Now, those who were serving did precisely what My Son told them—that is: “Fill the jars with water and bring them to the table.” My dear Jesus Blessed that water and it turned into delicious wine. O! A thousand times blessed, the one who does what He (Jesus) tells and wants! With this, My Son gave Me the Greatest Honor, He constituted Me Queen of Miracles; this is why He wanted My Union and My Prayer in doing His First Miracle. He Loved Me too much— so much that He wanted to give Me the First Place of Queen also in Miracles. And with facts, not with words, He said: “If you want Graces, Miracles, come to My Mother; I will never deny Her anything She wants.”
In addition to this, My daughter, with My Presence at this wedding, I looked at the future centuries, I saw the Kingdom of the Divine Will upon earth, I looked at families, and I impetrated for them that they might symbolize the Love of the Sacrosanct Trinity, so that Its Kingdom might be in Full Force. And with My Rights of Mother and Queen, I took to heart Its Regime; and Possessing the Source of It, I placed at the creatures’ disposal all the Graces, the Helps, the Sanctity, which are needed to Live in a Kingdom so Holy. And so I keep repeating: “Do whatever My Son tells you.”
My daughter, listen to Me: look for nothing else, if you want to have everything in your power, and give Me the contentment of being able to make of you My True Daughter, and Daughter of the Divine Will. Then will I (Blessed Mother) take on the commitment of forming the Marriage between you and the Fiat; and acting as your True Mother, I will bind the Marriage by giving you the very Life of My Son as Dowry, and My Maternity and all My Virtues as Gift.
Celestial Mama, how much I must thank You for the Great Love You have for me, and because, in everything You do, You always have a thought for me, and You prepare for me and give me such Graces, that Heaven and earth are moved and enraptured together with me; and we all say to You: “Thank You! Thank You!” O please! Holy Mama, engrave within my heart Your Holy Words: “Do whatever My Son tells you,” so as to generate in me the Life of the Divine Will, which I so much long for and desire. And You, Seal my will, that it may always be submitted to the Divine.
In all our actions, let us prick up our ears to listen to our Celestial Mama, who says to us: “Do whatever My Son tells you,” that we may do everything in order to fulfill the Divine Will.
Holy Mama, come into my soul, and do for me the Miracle of making me possessed by the Divine Will.
