7/22 Feast Day of St. Mary Magdalen; (1st Century) Memorial

Luisa’s third Order Dominican tertiary cross 

As a young lady, Luisa became a third Order Dominican tertiary, and took the name of Sister Mary Magdala. At the age of 16, Luisa made her profession to Jesus as His victim. From then until the end of her life she remained in a state of almost continuous suffering, enduring both the physical pains of the invisible stigmata, and the more terrible interior pains inflicted by Divine justice.

On October 16, 1888, Feast Day of St. Mary Margaret Alacoque, the Servant of God the Little Daughter of the Divine Will Luisa Piccarreta received the grace of the Mystical Marriage.

7/21 One who goes out of the Divine Will, goes out of the Light

Book of Heaven
VOL. 12 – 11/29/18

Finding myself in my usual state, I (Luisa) was praying my always lovable Jesus, according to what He had promised me another time – that when the soul always does His Will, sometimes He consents to do the will of the soul. Therefore, I said to Him: “Today You really have to do my will.”

Jesus, in coming, told me: “My daughter, don’t you know that as the soul goes out of My Will, it is like a day without sun for her, without heat, without the Life of the Divine Attitude within her?”

And I: “My Love, may Heaven keep me from doing this. I would rather die than go out of Your Will. Therefore, place Your Will in me, and then say to me, ‘It is My Will that today I do your will.’

And Jesus: “Ah, bad little one!  All right, I will make you content. I will keep you with Me as long as I want, and then I Myself will leave you free.” Oh! how happy I was that, without doing my will, Jesus, identifying His Will with mine, would do my will while doing His Will.

Afterwards, my Lovable Jesus spent some time with me. It seemed that He was dipping the point of His Finger in His Most Precious Blood, and then traced it over my forehead, my eyes, my mouth, my heart. Then He kissed me. In seeing Him so affectionate and sweet, I tried to suckle from His Mouth the bitternesses that His Heart contained, as I used to do before. But Jesus immediately withdrew a little, and showed me a bundle that He had in His Hand, full of other Chastisements; and He told me: “Look at how many other Chastisements must be poured upon the earth; this is why I do not pour into you. The enemies have prepared all their internal plans to make revolutions; now there is nothing left but to prepare their external plans. Ah, My daughter, how My Heart grieves! I have no one with whom to pour out My Sorrow. I want to pour it out with you. You will have to be patient in hearing Me speak very often about sad things. I know that you suffer, but it is Love that pushes Me to do this. Love wants to make Its Pains known to Its Beloved. I almost could not do without coming to pour Myself out with you.”

I felt bad in seeing Jesus so Embittered. I could feel His Pains in my heart; and Jesus, to Cheer me, gave me a few sips of the Sweetest Milk to drink. Then He added: “Now I withdraw and I leave you free.”

Book of Heaven
4/22/01 – Vol. 4

While I was all afflicted and confused, and almost without hope of seeing my adorable Jesus again, all of a sudden He came and told me: “Do you know what I want from you? I want you similar to Me in everything, both in operating and in the intention. I want you to be respectful with everyone, because respecting everyone gives peace to oneself and peace to others; and that you consider yourself the least of all; that you meditate constantly on my teachings within your mind, and keep them in your heart, so that, on the occasion, you may find them always ready to be used and put into practice. In sum, I want your life to be an outpouring of Mine.”

7/19 Everything in Jesus is Merciful Love.

Book of Heaven
6/9/22 – Vol. 14

. . . After this He (Jesus) came back again, but all afflicted; and He told me (Luisa): “I feel sad when they think that I am severe, and that I make more use of Justice than of Mercy. They are with Me as if I were to strike them in each thing. Oh, how dishonored I feel by these ones! In fact, this leads them to remain at due distance from Me, and one who is distant cannot receive all the fusion of my Love. And while they are the ones who do not love Me, they think that I am severe and almost a Being that strikes fear; while by just taking a look at my Life they can only notice that I did only one act of Justice – when, in order to defend the house of my Father, I took the ropes and snapped them to the right and to the left, to drive out the profanators. All the rest was only Mercy: Mercy my conception, my birth, my words, my works, my steps, the Blood I shed, my pains – everything in Me was Merciful Love. Yet, they fear Me, while they should fear themselves more than Me.”
