From the Postulation for the Cause:

Luisa Piccarreta was born in Corato, province of Bari, Italy on April 23, 1865. She was baptized in the Mother Church and there received the first Sacraments in 1874. When she was 11 she became a “Daughter of Mary” and as a teenager a third-order Dominican. She received only a first grade education, and was called to serve our Lord as a victim soul at the tender age of 16.
On February 2, 1899, she was given the obedience by her spiritual director to begin a diary of her spiritual experiences, which she continued until 1938: 36 notebooks which detail her intimate rapport with heaven.
In 1926 she wrote her autobiography under obedience to her extraordinary spiritual director and Censor of her Writings, Saint Annibale Maria Di Francia. Her bed was her cell, her room her chapel, and her bed her Cross. The word which gave her life was God’s own creative Word: Fiat!
When she spoke, it was only briefly, but very wisely; the example and counsel she gave was always illuminating. Carrying invisibly the wounds of our Lord in her own crucified body made her a rare victim of intercession for mankind for more than 60 years, and any physical illness. Her nourishment for the most part of her life consisted of God’s Most Holy Will and the Eucharist.
Luisa, Precursor of the Sanctifying Third Fiat, chosen by God for the holy mission of proclaiming God’s Kingdom: “His Will now done on earth as it is in heaven”, was called into the fullness of that Kingdom on March 4, 1947.
On November 20, 1994 in the Mother Church of Corato, Mons. Carmelo Cassati, Archbishop of Trani-Barletta-Bisceglie, having received the “non obstare” from the Holy See, blessed the opening of the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, secular third order Dominican.
With the Archbishop himself as president of the Ecclesiastical Tribunal, joined by enthusiastic faithful from southern Italy and from around the world, Luisa began her triumphal journey toward the Honors of the Altar.
Whoever has received particular graces attributed to the intercession of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta is requested to wrote to:

4/22 Begin Novena to St. Joseph 4/22-5/1

S_St Joseph the Worker

Dear Saint Joseph, you be my Protector, the Custodian of my heart, and you keep the keys of my human will in your hands.

Dear Saint Joseph, you will keep my heart jealously, and will never give it to me again, that I may be sure never to go out of the Most Holy Will of God.

We ask this in the Name of Jesus, under the Blue Mantle of Mary Our Mother and through the intercession of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, the little daughter of the Divine Will,



Storm Luisa with your prayers
If we wish the Servant of God to continue, and even hasten, her ascent to the glory of the altar, let us give her a chance to perform first class miracles. 
Her holiness and the favors already granted should impregnate our supplications with unquenchable confidence.   
It is certainly permissible to pray to her in our daily needs, but let us not be afraid to implore real miracles from her.  
Let us invoke her or have her invoked in cases of fatal maladies, wherein science has to declare itself powerless.   
That is when Luisa Piccarreta will be able to display the prodigious power of her intercession.
For the glory of God and of Luisa Piccarreta, kindly write out the favors obtained, sign them, with two witnesses, if possible, and send to:

4/20 All that Jesus did upon earth is in continuous act of giving itself to man. Correspondence for each created thing.

Book of Heaven
3/28/22 – Vol. 14

Continuing in my usual state, I was fusing all of myself in the Holy Will of my lovable Jesus; and He told me: “Daughter of my Will, if you knew the portents, the prodigies that occur when you fuse yourself in my Will, you would be stupefied. Listen a bit: all that I did upon earth is in continuous act of giving itself to man, surrounding him like a crown. My thoughts form a crown around the intelligence of the creature; my words, my works, my steps, etc., form a crown around her words, works and steps, so that, by braiding her things with Mine, I may say to my Celestial Father that her works are like Mine.

Now, who takes this continuous attitude of Mine? Who lets herself be braided by my works, with which I crowned the whole human family? The one who lives in my Will. As you were fusing your thoughts in my Volition, my thoughts which surrounded you like a crown heard the echo of my thoughts in your mind, and identifying themselves with yours, they multiplied yours with Mine, and formed a double crown around the human intelligence. And my Celestial Father received, not only from Me, but also from you, divine glory on the part of all created intelligences; the same with words and with all the rest. And He receives this divine glory not only from the creatures, but from all other created things, because all things were created to make continuous love run toward man, and man, by justice, should give homage and love to his Creator for each created thing.

Now, who compensates for this? Who makes that FIAT, through which all things were made, her own, so as to spread homage, adoration, divine love for her Creator over everything? The one who lives in my Will! She makes that Omnipotent FIAT her own almost at each word of hers. The echo of the Eternal FIAT echoes within her Divine FIAT in which she lives, and it spreads, it runs – it flies, impressing another FIAT on each created thing, and giving back to her Creator the homage and the love wanted by Him.

This was done by Me when I was on earth. There was nothing for which I did not requite my Divine Father on the part of all creatures. Now it is done – and I want it, I expect it – by the one who lives in my Will. If you could see how beautiful it is to see my glory, my Love, my profound adoration united to yours, in every flickering of stars, in every drop of light of the Sun! Oh, how it runs – flies upon the wings of the wind, filling the whole atmosphere! It crosses the waters of the sea, it places itself in each plant, in each flower; it multiplies at each motion! It is a voice that echoes over everything, and says: ‘Love, glory, adoration to my Creator!’ Therefore, the one who lives in my Will is the echo of my voice, the repeater of my Life, the perfect glory of my Creation. How could I not love her? How could I not give to her all that I should give to all the other creatures together, giving her primacy over all? Ah, my Love would feel constrained if I did not do so!”

04/19 One who dwells in Jesus swims in the sea of all contentments.

Book of Heaven
Volume 4; November 2, 1900

The one who dwells in Jesus swims in the Sea of all Contentments.

     This morning I felt all oppressed and afflicted, with the addition that Blessed Jesus was not making Himself seen.  Then, after much waiting, He came out from within my interior, and opening His Heart to me, He placed me inside of It, telling me:  “Remain inside of Me – only there shall you find True Peace and Stable Contentment, because nothing penetrates into Me that does not belong to Peace and Contentment.  The one who Dwells in Me does nothing other than swim in the Sea of all Contentments; while, then, in going outside of Me, even if the soul did not meddle in anything, at the mere sight of the offenses that they give Me and of how they grieve Me, she already comes to participate in those Afflictions, and remains troubled.  Therefore, every now and then, forget everything, enter into Me, and come to enjoy My Peace and Happiness.  Then go out, and do for Me the Office of My Repairer.”  Having said this, He disappeared.

4/18 …you, by wanting nothing, have wanted Everything, and here is all the Fineness and the Astuteness of True Love.

Book of Heaven:  Volume 11; February 24, 1912

The soul who Lives in the Divine Will loses her temperament and acquires that of Jesus.  The Smile of Jesus.

     After I saw various souls around Jesus, especially the one who was more sensitive, Jesus told me:  “My daughter, if the souls with sensitive temperament start doing Good, they make more progress than the others, because their sensitivity leads them to arduous and great enterprises.”  I prayed that He would take what was left of her human sensitivity away from that soul, and that He would clasp her more closely to Himself and tell her that He Loved her, for He would conquer her Completely, as she would hear that He Loved her.  “You shall see that You shall succeed.  Have You not Conquered me in this way, telling me that You Loved me very, very much?”  And Jesus:  “Yes, yes, I shall do it, but I want her cooperation – that she escape as much as she can from the people who excite her sensitivity.”
     So I added:  “My Love, tell me, what about my temperament – what is it?”  And Jesus:  “The one who Lives in My Will loses her temperament and acquires Mine.  So, in the soul who Lives in My Will one finds a Pleasant, Attractive, Penetrating, Dignified Temperament, and Simple at the same time – of a child-like simplicity; in sum, she looks like Me in everything.  Even more, she keeps her temperament within her power as she wants and as is needed.  Since she Lives in My Will, she takes part in My Power, so she has all things, and herself, at her disposal, and according to the circumstances and the people she deals with, she takes My Temperament and applies it.”
And I:  “Tell me, shall You give me a First Place in Your Will?”  Jesus smiled:  “Yes, yes, I Promise you.  I shall never let you go out of My Will, and you shall take and do whatever you want.”
And I:  “Jesus, I want to be poor poor, little little; I want nothing, even of Your very things; it is better if You keep them.  I want only You, and as I need things You shall give them to me; isn’t it True, O Jesus?”
And Jesus:  Brava, brava, My daughter!  Finally I have found someone who does not want anything.  Everyone wants something from Me, but not the All – that is, Myself Alone; but you, by wanting nothing, have wanted Everything, and here is all the Fineness and the Astuteness of True Love.”  I smiled and Jesus disappeared.

4/17 Peaceful souls are the delight of God


Book of Heaven
Volume 8; March 29, 1908 

Peaceful souls are the delight of God.

     This morning, on coming, blessed Jesus seemed to carry a black mantle; and drawing near me, He seemed to place me (Luisa) under it, saying: “In this way I will envelop all creatures, as within a black mantle.” And He disappeared.
I remained concerned because of some chastisement, and I prayed Him to come back, for I could no longer be without Him; but I was as though bothered by that sight from before. Then, after much hardship, He came, carrying a cup filled with some liqueur. He gave me some to drink, and then He added: My daughter, peaceful souls eat at my same table and drink at my cup, and the Divine Archer does nothing but dart through them continuously, and no dart is wasted. All of them – all of them wound the loving soul; and the soul faints, while the Divine Archer continues with His arrows which now make her die of love, now give her back new life of love. And from her wounds, the soul shoots her darts to wound the One who has so much wounded her. So, a peaceful soul is the delight and the amusement of God; while, with turbid souls, if the Divine Archer darts through them, the darts are wasted by the soul, leaving Him embittered, and forming the diabolical amusement and taste.”
