Madonna del Parto, Antonio Veneziano
The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven, Mother of Jesus:
Dearest daughter, do not fear, trust your Mama; pour everything into My Heart, and I will take everything into account. I will be your Mama, I will change your pains into Light, and will use them to expand the boundaries of the Kingdom of the Divine Will in your soul.
Therefore, put everything aside for now, and listen to Me; I want to tell you what little King Jesus Operated in my Maternal Womb, and how your Mama did not lose even one Breath of Little Jesus.
Now, my daughter, the Little Humanity of Jesus kept growing, United Hypostatically with the Divinity. My Maternal Womb was so very narrow, dark—there was not a glimmer of light. And I could see Him in My Maternal Womb, immobile, enveloped in a deep night. But do you know what formed this darkness, so intense, for the Infant Jesus? The human will, in which man had voluntarily enveloped himself; and for as many sins as he committed, so many abysses of darkness he formed around and within himself, in such a way that it rendered him immobile to doing good. And My Dear Jesus, in order to put to flight the darkness of this night so deep, in which man had rendered himself the prisoner of his own tenebrous will, to the point of losing the motion of doing good, chose the Sweet Prison of His Mama and, voluntarily, exposed Himself to the immobility of nine months.
My daughter, if you knew how martyred was My Maternal Heart in seeing Little Jesus in My Little Womb, immobile, crying, sighing! His Ardent Heartbeat Palpitated so very Strongly; and fidgeting with Love, He made His Heartbeat heard in every heart, to ask them—for pity’s sake—for their souls, because for Love of them He had voluntarily exchanged Light for darkness so that all might obtain True Light in order to reach safety.
My dearest daughter, who can tell you what My Little Jesus suffered in My Womb? Unheard-of and Indescribable Pains. He was endowed with Full Reason—He was God and Man; and His Love was so Great that He put as though aside the Infinite Seas of Joys, of Happiness, of Light, and plunged His Tiny Humanity into the seas of darkness, of bitterness, of unhappiness, and of miseries, which creatures had prepared for Him. And Little Jesus took them all upon His shoulders, as if they were His own. My daughter, True Love never says “Enough.” It does not look at the pains, and by dint of pains it searches for the loved one; and when It lays down Its Life to give Life back to the beloved—then is It content.
My daughter, listen to your Mama; see what great evil it is to do your will: not only do you prepare the night for your Jesus and for yourself, but you form seas of bitterness, of unhappiness and of miseries, in which you remain so engulfed as to be unable to escape. Therefore, be attentive; make Me Happy by saying to Me: “I want to do always the Divine Will.”
Now listen, My daughter: Little Jesus, in Spasms of Love, is in the Act of taking the step to come out to the light of the day. His Yearnings, His Ardent Sighs and Desires for He wants to embrace the creature, to make Himself seen, and to Look at her in order to Enrapture her to Himself, give Him no more respite. And just as one day He put Himself on the lookout at the Doors of Heaven in order to enclose Himself in My Womb, so is He now in the Act of putting Himself on the lookout at the doors of My Womb, which is more than Heaven. And the Sun of the Eternal Word Rises in the world and forms in it Its Full Midday. So, there will be night no longer for the poor creatures, nor dawn, nor daybreak—but always Sunshine, more than at the fullness of midday. . . .
