1/13 What distinguishes Luisa from all the others?

…in a few words: What distinguishes the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta, from all the

 From the Introduction to the book “Quando la Divina Volonta’
regna nell’anima” (“When the Divine Will reigns in the soul”), published by the
Pious Association “Luisa Piccarreta” with ecclesiastical  approval.

 Where is the uniqueness of Luisa, that which distinguishes her
from all the others? Let us say it soon and with simple words: she is the first
one to live in the Divine Will, in perfect imitation of the Humanity of Our
Lord: “My food is to do the Will of my Father”… and in perfect imitation of the
Most Holy Virgin: “Fiat Mihi…”

The Saints and the Church have known until now the conformity
to the Will of God, the full abandonment, and even the union to the Will of God.
We could take as examples of this, the concepts of St. Francis of Sales and of
St. Vincent de Paul, among many, in the following expression: “To empty oneself
of oneself and to unite one’s own will so completely to God that it becomes one
with His…”

We could say: this is the highest point. And so, what is the
difference between the teachings we are given through Luisa and this union of
wills? We will take the answer from the writings of Luisa. In Volume 14, on
October 6, 1922, being asked by Luisa how it could be possible that she was the
first one to live in the Divine Will after so many centuries and so many Saints
the Church has had, Our Lord says:

“…And then, it is so true that I have called you as the first,
since to no other soul, though dear to Me, did I manifest the way to live in my
Will, Its effects, and the wonders and the goods that the creature operating in
the Supreme Volition receives. Check as many lives of Saints as you want, or
books of doctrines: in none of them will you find the prodigies of my Volition
operating in the creature and of the creature operating in my Will. At the most,
you will find resignation, union of wills; but in not one of them will you find
the Divine Will operating in her, and she in It. This means that the time had
not come in which my Goodness was to call the creature to live in this sublime
state. Even the way I make you pray cannot be found in anyone else. Therefore,
be attentive. My Justice demands this, my Love is delirious; so my Wisdom
disposes everything in order to obtain the intent. It is the rights, the Glory
of Creation, that We want from you.”

 In other words, from the union of wills already known through
several Saints, Luisa moves on to the activity of the union – to the activity
and the life of the creature in the Divine Will.

This statement can be verified and confirmed by the reader, if he reads the Writings without prejudice and “with his mind opened to the light of the Truth”; otherwise, “he will understand nothing” (Volume 12, January 29, 1919).
