5/21 Seventh Sunday of Easter (in Ecclesiastical Provinces of Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, Omaha and Philadelphia)

Volume 36; April 20, 1938

…I continued my round in all that Our Lord did on earth and I stopped in the act of Resurrection.  What triumph, what glory.  Heaven poured Itself upon earth to be spectator of such a great glory. My beloved Jesus said: “My daughter, in my Resurrection, the right was given to creatures to rise again in me to new life.  It was the confirmation, the seal of my whole life, my works and my words.  If I came on earth it was to give to each and every one my Resurrection, as their own – to give them life and make them rise again in my own Resurrection.  But do you want to know where is the real resurrection of the creature?  Not in the end of her days, but while she is still living on earth.  One who lives in my Will rises again to light and says: ‘my night is over.’  She rises again in the love of her Creator, so that there is no more cold or snow for her, but the smile of the Heavenly Spring; she rises again to sanctity, which puts to rushed flight all weaknesses, miseries and passions; she rises again to all that is Heaven, and if she looks at the earth, Heaven and Sun, she does it to find the works of her Creator – to take the opportunity to narrate to Him His glory and His long love story.

“Therefore, the one who lives in my Will can say, as the Angel said to the holy women on the way to the sepulcher, ‘He is risen.  He is not here any more.’   The one who lives in my Will can also say, ‘my will is not with me any longer – it is risen again in the Fiat.’  And if the circumstances of life, opportunities and sufferings surround the creature, as if they were looking for her will, she can answer: ‘my will is risen again, it is not in my power anymore.  I possess, in exchange, the Divine Will, and I want to cover with Its light all things around me – circumstances and sufferings, to make them like many divine conquests.’  The soul who lives in our Will finds life in the acts of  her Jesus, and Our operating, conquering, triumphant Will always runs in her.  She gives us so much glory that Heaven cannot contain it.  Therefore, live always in our Will – never leave it, if you want to be our triumph and our glory.”
