…After this, I found myself prey to a supreme force, that it was not given to me to be able to resist, in my painful state; and even though I felt great reluctance, I tried to abandon myself in the Divine Will, my only refuge. And Jesus, to give me strength, made Himself seen for a little while and told me: “My daughter, in creating man, Our Divinity issued from Ourselves Sanctity, Love, Goodness, Beauty, and so forth, that were to serve man to make himself holy, good, beautiful, and to give Us love for Love. Now, Our goods have not been taken completely by him, and so they are waiting for one who would take them. Therefore, come into Our Goods, come to take the crumbs of Sanctity, of Love, of Goodness, the crumbs of Beauty, of Strength. I say crumbs in comparison with those that you will leave out, because Our Goods are immense and what the creature can take can be called crumbs compared to what she leaves out; but, for her, they fill her so much as to overflow outside. Only when Our Love sees the creature loved in Our Goods, filled to the brim—then is It content. Now, these crumbs form many different foods, one more beautiful than the other, that she takes from Our Celestial Table, and she nourishes herself abundantly from these Divine Foods; and since one gives of that food that one takes, so, in giving Us her acts, of one who has nourished herself of these Divine crumbs that give of Sanctity, of Beauty, of Strength, of Love, and has filled herself with such beauty, We immediately recognize that it is food of Our crumbs that she gives Us in her acts, and—oh! how content We remain, that the creature gives Us her acts that give of Divine; We feel Our fragrances, We touch Our Sanctity and Goodness, and feel requited for the crumbs We gave to her.”
|Luke 18: 10 – 14
|10||“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.|
|11||The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, `God, I thank thee that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.|
|12||I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get.’|
|13||But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, `God, be merciful to me a sinner!’|
|14||I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for every one who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”|
Excerpt from the Eighth Hour: from Midnight to 1 am, Jesus is arrested, from the Hours of the Passion:
But, O Sweet Jesus, my Good, what a touching scene I see! You first meet the perfidious Judas, who, drawing near You and throwing his arms around Your neck, greets You and kisses You. And You, Most Passionate Love, do not disdain to kiss those infernal lips; You embrace him and press him to Your Heart, wanting to snatch him from hell, and giving him signs of New Love. My Jesus, how is it possible not to love You? The tenderness of Your Love is such that it should snatch every heart to love You; yet, they do not love You! And You, O my Jesus, in bearing this kiss of Judas, repair for the betrayals, the pretenses, the deceptions under the aspect of friendship and sanctity, especially of priests. Your kiss, then, shows that, not to one sinner, provided that he comes humbled before You, would You refuse Your Forgiveness.
March 28, 1994 – Cardinal Felici’s letter from the Sacred Congregation of the Causes of the Saints to His Excellency Archbishop Carmelo Cassati. The letter declared that on the part of the Holy See there was no impediment to opening the Cause for Luisa Piccarreta’s Beatification, and to therefore start the process.
November 20, 1994 – Feast of Christ the King: Archbishop Cassati officially opened the beatification cause of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta in the principal church of Corato, in the presence of a huge crowd of people, locals and foreigners.
In October 2005 at the end of the closure of Luisa’s cause by the Archdiocese of Trani, all official documents were packaged and sealed for shipment to Congregation for the Causes of the Saints – The dicastery, or department, of the Roman Curia responsible to the Holy Father for the investigations which lead to the beatification and canonization of holy men and women. On March 7, 2006 those packages were officially opened by the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints. Thus began the “Roman Phase” of Luisa’s Cause.
The Congregation for the Causes of the Saints appoints a Relator from among its College of Relators. His task is to supervise the writing of the Positio, a complete biography containing the evidence for or against the candidate. When completed the Positio is judged by the Congregation’s consultors, and then by a panel of theologians, whose vote determines whether the Positio is presented to the Cardinals of the Congregation for their vote. If the Cardinals approve, the Cause goes to the Pope, whose positive judgment on the Heroic Virtues of the Servant of God permits the person to be called Venerable. This Decree on the Heroic Virtues, together with a Decree approving a Miracle, permits the person’s Beatification.
On March 7, 2006, three days after the 59th anniversary of Luisa’s passage to Heaven, Luisa’s cause was officially opened in Rome. The official seals on the cases containing the documents from the Archdiocese of Trani were broken and the cases opened by the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints. In attendance were Padre Bernardino Bucci and the Vicar General of Trani Msgr. Savino Giannotti.
Mass Reading for March 7, 2006
Matthew 6: 7 – 15
7 “And in praying do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that
they will be heard for their many words.
8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 Pray then like this: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as It is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread;
12 And forgive us our debts, As we also have forgiven our debtors;
13 And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.
14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;
15 but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your
Marie-Julie Jahenny (1850-1941), the French stigmatist, mystic, and victim soul, gave a prophecy on December 8, 1874, that may now apply to our day. She bore the stigmata from the age of twenty-three until her death. She said, “In Rome the storm will be the blackest. “The storm in Rome is worse than the storm in France. ” All the wrath of the ungodly is in Rome. All the anger of the wicked is focused on the Holy See. But, the chastisements will begin in Paris.
The term icon in the last ten years has been an overused word. However, Notre Dame (Our Lady) Cathedral in Paris embodies the very definition of the word icon. Construction started in 1163 under King Louis VII of France, and was completed nearly two hundred years later in 1345, on the Ile de la Cite’ in the middle of the Seine. All distances in Paris originate from Notre Dame. France is the Elder Daughter of the Roman Catholic Church, and the church is symbolic of its past faith. What went up in flames was old Europe. The stone slabs of Notre Dame reflect the heart of a nation, and western civilization itself. Notre Dame IS Paris, because so much was built around it –and because of it. It survived warring nations in the middle ages, the French Revolution, Napoleon’s exploits, two World Wars and a very aggressive Nazi state.
Anyone who has been to Paris remembers its Gothic architecture and flying buttresses. To see the Notre Dame Cathedral while on a boat on the Seine was breathtaking and inspiring. Notre Dame embodied past generations of Christendom, not just France. The Camino in northern Spain was similar to Notre Dame in its significance of religious heritage. It is a little over 850 years old, and to put that in perspective, Saint Augustine, Florida the oldest city in the United States was founded in the year 1565, and Jamestown Virginia 1607. The cornerstone of the U.S. Capitol was laid in 1793. Yes, Notre Dame has been around for a long time.
What Notre Dame once was, it is no longer. Nor is the faith of its people. It is a shell of its former self and a faithless one at that. The world is in a state of shock because in our souls we know an era has passed. Approximately three percent of Parisians today identify with orthodoxy and go to church. For them it is culture, not heart or soul. It became a cultural icon in the past several generations and is now relegated to a tourist attraction, and more of a museum and cultural heritage site, rather than what was in the heart of its French pilgrims and visitors who sojourned there to see its magnificence. FAITH made Notre Dame what it was.
The shock of seeing the spire fall to the ground in real time on television against a darkened sky and the subsequent mourning of people, will be etched in minds for decades as those who saw images of the Twin Towers collapsing on 9/11. Those of faith will remember where they were. With the Pentagon and Twin Towers falling, mankind knew in their hearts the world had changed. That created the emotion. It would have been different if lightening had struck the Twin Towers, and Notre Dame. It was so dramatic because everyone knew that the world would be different from that day on because warring factions of religion and strong ideological differences is a strong factor with no remedy in sight.
The same applies to this. France has changed, Europe has changed, and so has everyone. It has to do with race and different religions. The Muslim invasion to take over Europe is at the heart of the conflict. Migration, invasion, legal, and illegal immigration, and caravans are the beating heart of the issue. Muslims and Arab nations are using mass migration to take over the world for Allah. Oil rich Arab nations are taking in virtually no migrants (zero) but choosing to promote Islam through invasion. It is a jihad, and the west is walking in a daze and hoping it goes away.
Let’s see how far logic brings us.
— Col. Muammar Gaddafi of Libya (President, deceased) said thirty years ago that Islam would take over Europe without a shot being fired due to mass migration and flooding Europe with migrants.
— Much like parts of Scandanavia now, there are whole suburbs in Paris that are “no go zones” for police due to possible violence against the “intruder and infidels.” Streets in heavily trafficked suburbs have been closed for decades at the call to prayer.
— In 2016 a car carrying seven gas cylinders were found near Notre Dame. ISIS has continually said Notre Dame was a target as is St. Peter’s in Rome. As the Twin Towers and Pentagon were symbols of the power and might of New York and the U.S. military, Notre Dame is a symbol of western Christianity.
— The intensity of violence in all Europe is increasing against Christian and Jewish establishments by the year. At Notre Dame des Enfants in Nimes, the Consecrated Host was found in garbage outside the church, and human feces was drawn as a sign of the cross.
— In the year 2018, 875 French churches alone were vandalized.
— In March 2019 Saint Sulpice, and eleven other churches were vandalized, with damage to one alone estimated at over 200 million euro’s.
— Le Parisien reports in March of 2019, a 41 year old Pakistani immigrant is on trial
for vandalizing the Saint Denis Basilica housing many of the tombs of past French Kings.
— Benjamin Mouton, the Chief Architect of Notre Dame said on French TV that in no way was this an accident. He said the fire broke out in an area where there was no renovation.
— In 2018, there were according to the French police 1,063 acts of violence against Christian and Jewish establishments. That is an average of 89 per month. Similar reports are now being reported all over Germany, and the world. A German report in November 2017 said in the Alps area alone, 200 churches were vandalized. If the fire was an accident, so be it, but the vast percentage of Americans don’t believe the U.S. government sponsored 9/11 Report either. If anyone believes the U.S government position, just ask gently, “how did Building 7 fall 6 hours later?”
U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota (D) has openly attacked the Christian views of Vice President Mike Pence. Thirty-seven years old and born in Mogadishu, Somalia, she states that his view of Christianity is unacceptable to her Muslim views. After the attack, Cardinal Sarah said, “If the West continues in this fatal way, there is a great risk that, due to lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome has been invaded by barbarians. My country is predominantly Muslim. I think I know what reality I am talking about. Islam will invade the world being ‘invaded’ by migrants and will completely change cultural, anthropology and moral vision, and the West will disappear.” However, globalist western leaders are welcoming the migration for the new world they wish to mold in their image.
If you have a different political opinion than many Muslims, you are labeled a racist or a bigot. Muslim leaders are schooled in classrooms and café’s around the world how to speak to the press and the general public to control the narrative. Listen to just about any talk show and you will see them talking over the opposing view hammering the message of intolerance if one disagrees with their talking points.
The Twin Towers and the Pentagon were symbols of U.S financial and military strength. When hit, it showed their vulnerability. The abandonment of faith in the west has allowed this to happen not realizing faith can be lost when not taught correctly. Let’s be very clear here now in the year 2019, the west is pagan by biblical standards, and child killing is the number one indicator of that fact. We are now two to three generations removed in the west from proper education in the faith, and this is our result.
The above refusal of many people reminds one of the stated intentions of the Nazi’s to eliminate Jews in Europe in the 1930’s to early 40’s. It was a carnage like nothing in all of history, and many people refused to admit the truth. Millions of deaths later, they lamented that the signs were ignored. Kristalnacht (the night of the broken glass) in November 1938 was a mere two day duration in Germany. The above incidents of Muslim violence are now in the multiple thousands across all Europe, and people refuse to see the threat. In the European Union today, it is anathema to mention God in the public square, yet in times of crisis we seek His protection.
However, the fact is that many people believe that the U.S. is largely to blame for sticking its nose in places it was not wanted. First and foremost, it was the Iraq War staged by the United States and the neocons from the People for the New American Century (PNAC) fabricating a war in the Middle East, using the excuse Saddam Huessin had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). The charade of uranium from Niger with the Valerie Plame story proved to be a lie. The U.S. wanted a war to remake the world into its image of what ought to be. Pres. George H. W. Bush (41) in his message to the joint members of Congress said twice, “The New World Order, a big idea.” The goal of the global elite is to merge all nations into a utopian dream without borders or sovereignty. The Bush Administration (43) used former Secretary of State General Colin Powell to deliver the lie of uranium from Niger was in Iraq before the U.N. General Assembly, thus an invasion was necessary. There is a game being played far above the heads of most, with people who want war and unrealistic aspirations for mankind. At the heart of the matter is a Luciferian agenda dating back to Genesis with Satan saying, “I will not serve.”
Some people believe that the Notre Dame Cathedral fire is about the spiritual chaos and upheaval in the church. So goes the family, so goes the church, and so goes the world. The family and the church are under a great spiritual and diabolical attack.
A friend sent me a reflection on the fire he picked up off the net. It reads, ”First, what survived the fire? The cross, the altar, and the crown of thorns. Consider this for your own life, when our lives will be burned up and everything turned to ashes, what will survive? Will it be the crosses that made you holy, the altar where you offered yourself to God as a living sacrifice, or the Crown of Thorns in humility you wore that you may be worthy to wear as glorious crown of gold.
Second, the outside of the church looked completely destroyed, while the inside remained intact though damaged— a fitting metaphor for the universal Church. But, to those on the inside, we know that while damaged, it can never be destroyed.
Finally, the fire at Notre Dame is a powerful symbol of what is happening in Europe, and soon the United States. The flames of secularism seem intent on destroying it. Will a new generation rise up to save not their cultural heritage, but their very faith itself?
Jesus was clear that the gates of hell will never prevail against the church. That is our hope — that is our destiny.
JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU!
2/12/08 – Vol. 8
As I was in my usual state, blessed Jesus came for just a little and told me: “My daughter, timidity represses Grace and hampers the soul. A timid soul will never be good at operating great things, either for God, or for her neighbor, or for herself. When a soul is timid, it is as if she had her legs tied: unable to walk freely, she always has her eyes fixed on herself, and on the effort she makes in order to walk. Timidity makes her keep her eyes low, never high. In operating, she draws her strength not from God, but from herself, and therefore, instead of becoming stronger, she becomes weaker. If Grace sows, it happens to It as to a poor farmer who, having sown and worked his little field, harvests little or nothing. On the other hand, in one day a courageous soul does more than a timid one does in one year.”
The First Joyful Mystery of the Rosary. Tomorrow the Church celebrates that day when the Archangel Gabriel requested Our Lady to be the Mother of God. Mary accepts and declares Herself to be the handmaid of the Lord.
The Annunciation is one of the three most ancient feasts of Our Lady. The feast probably dates from the Council of Ephesus in 431, when Our Lady was proclaimed the Mother of God. This proclamation was because of a heresy which denied Mary’s Divine Motherhood. It was also the Council of Ephesus which added the following words to the Hail Mary: “Holy Mary Mother of God, pray focus sinners now and at the hour of our death, Amen.”
This feast has been known by many names over the years, including: the Feast of the Incarnation,” “the beginning of the Redemption,” “the Conception of Christ” and “the Announcing of the Christ.”
– Significance of March 25th: Adam and Eve each being created; the passing of Israel through the Red Sea; the sacrifice of Isaac by his father Abraham; St. John the Baptist’s beheading; Jesus Died on Good Friday March 25th – The day that Mary took her Son’s Body into Her Arms beneath the Cross is the same day that She had taken His Body into Her Womb at the Annunciation; Feast of the Good Thief, St. Dismas, as Jesus Promised him from the Cross “today you will be with me in Paradise”; Our Lady Announced to St. Bernadette at Lourdes that She is “The Immaculate Conception.”
Day Nineteen – The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
Now, My daughter, listen to Me: I continued My Life in Nazareth; the Divine Fiat continued to expand Its Kingdom within Me. It used My littlest acts, even the most indifferent ones—such as keeping the little house in order, starting the fire, sweeping, and all the tasks that are usually done in the families—to let Me feel Its Life Palpitating in the fire, in the water, in the food, in the air I breathed— in everything. And Investing them, It formed over my little acts Seas of Light, of Grace, of Sanctity; because wherever It Reigns, the Divine Will has the Power to form, from little trifles, New Heavens of Enchanting Beauty. In fact, being Immense, It does not know how to do small things, but with Its Power It gives Value to trifles, and makes of them the Greatest Things, such as to Astonish Heaven and earth. Everything is Holy, everything is Sacred, for the one who Lives of Divine Will.
Now, daughter of My Heart, pay attention to Me and listen: several days before the descent of the Eternal Word upon earth, I could see Heaven opened and the Sun of the Divine Word at Its doors, as though to look out for the one upon whom He was to take His Flight, to render Himself Celestial Prisoner of a creature. O! How Beautiful it was to see Him at the doors of Heaven, as though on the lookout, and to spy the fortunate creature who was to host Her Creator!
The Sacrosanct Trinity no longer looked at the earth as alien to Them, because there was little Mary who, by possessing the Divine Will, had formed the Divine Kingdom in which He could descend safely, as in His own Dwelling, in which He would find Heaven and the many suns of the many Acts of Divine Will done in My Soul. The Divinity Overflowed with Love, and removing the Mantle of Justice which, for so many centuries, They had kept with creatures, They covered Themselves with the Mantle of Infinite Mercy, and decreed among Themselves the Descent of the Word, and were in the Act of sounding the Hour of the Fulfillment. At this sound, Heaven and earth were Astounded, and all stood at attention, to be spectators of such a Great Excess of Love, and a Prodigy so unheard-of.
Your Mama felt Ignited with Love, and echoing the Love of My Creator, I wanted to form one single Sea of Love, so that the Word might descend upon earth within it. My Prayers were Incessant, and while I was praying in my little room, an Angel came, sent from Heaven as messenger of the Great King. He came before Me, and bowing, he hailed Me: “Hail, O Mary, our Queen; the Divine Fiat has filled You with Grace. He has already pronounced His Fiat— that He wants to descend; He is already behind my shoulders, but He wants Your Fiat to form the Fulfillment of His Fiat.”
At such a great announcement, so much desired by Me— although I had never thought I would be the chosen one—I was stupefied and hesitated one instant. But the Angel of the Lord told Me: “Do not fear, our Queen, for You have found Grace before God. You have Conquered Your Creator; therefore, to complete the Victory—pronounce Your Fiat.”
I pronounced My Fiat, and—O! Marvel—the two Fiats fused together and the Divine Word descended into Me. My Fiat, which was Endowed with same Value as the Divine Fiat, from the Seed of My humanity, formed the tiny little Humanity which was to enclose the Word; and the Great Prodigy of the Incarnation was accomplished.
O! Power of the Supreme Fiat—You raised Me so high as to render Me Powerful, to the point of being able to create within Me that Humanity which was to enclose the Eternal Word, whom Heaven and earth could not contain. The heavens were shaken, and all Creation assumed the attitude of Feast; and exulting with Joy, they peeked over the little house of Nazareth, to give homages and obsequies to the Creator made Man; and in their mute language, they said: “O! Prodigy of prodigies, which only a God could do. Immensity has made itself little, Power has rendered Itself powerless, His Unreachable Height has lowered itself deep into the abyss of the womb of a Virgin, and at the same time, He is little and Immense, Powerful and powerless, Strong and weak.”
My dear daughter, you cannot comprehend what your Mama experienced in the Act of the Incarnation of the Word. All pressed upon Me and awaited My Fiat, I could say, Omnipotent.
Now, dear daughter, listen to Me: how much you should take to heart doing the Divine Will and Living of It. My Power still exists— let Me pronounce My Fiat over your soul. But in order to do this, I want your own. A True Good cannot be done with one alone, but the Greatest Works are always done between two. God Himself did not want to do it on His own, but wanted Me together with Him to form the Great Prodigy of the Incarnation; and in My Fiat and in His, the Life of the Man-God was formed, the destiny of mankind was restored, Heaven was no longer closed; all Goods were enclosed between the two Fiats. Therefore, let us pronounce them together: “Fiat! Fiat!” and My Maternal Love will enclose in you the Life of the Divine Will.
My dear daughter, today I await you more than ever. My Maternal Heart is swollen; I feel the need to pour out My Ardent Love with My daughter: I want to say to you that I am the Mother of Jesus. My Joys are Infinite; Seas of Happiness inundate Me. I can say: I am the Mother of Jesus; His creature, His handmaid, is Mother of Jesus—and I owe this only to the Fiat. It rendered Me Full of Grace, It prepared the Worthy Dwelling for My Creator. Therefore, always Glory, Honor and Thanksgiving be to the Supreme Fiat.
Now listen to Me, daughter of My Heart: as soon as the Little Humanity of Jesus was formed in My Womb by the Power of the Divine Fiat, the Sun of the Eternal Word Incarnated Himself in It. I had My Heaven, formed by the Fiat, all studded with Most Refulgent Stars that glittered with Joys, Beatitudes, Harmonies of Divine Beauty; and the Sun of the Eternal Word, Blazing with Inaccessible Light, came to take His Place within this Heaven, hidden in His Little Humanity. And since His Little Humanity could not contain Him, the Center of this Sun remained in It, but Its Light Overflowed outside, and Investing Heaven and earth, It reached every heart. And with Its Pounding of Light, It knocked at each creature, and with Voices of Penetrating Light, It said to them:
“My children, open to Me; give Me a place in your heart. I have descended from Heaven to earth in order to form My Life in each one of you. My Mother is the Center in which I reside, and all My children will be the circumference, in which I want to form so many of My Lives for as many as are My children.” And the Light knocked and knocked again, without ever ceasing; and the Little Humanity of Jesus moaned, cried, agonized, and within that Light which reached into the hearts, He made flow His Tears, His Moans and His Pangs of Love and of Sorrow.
Now, you must know that a New Life began for your Mama. I was aware of everything that My Son was doing. I saw Him devoured by seas of Flames of Love; each one of His Heartbeats, Breaths and Pains were Seas of Love that He unleashed, enveloping all creatures to make them His own by Force of Love and of Sorrow. In fact, you must know that as His Little Humanity was Conceived, He Conceived all the Pains He was to suffer, up to the last day of His Life. He enclosed all souls within Himself, because, as God, no one could escape Him. His Immensity enclosed all creatures, His All-seeingness made them all present to Him. Therefore, My Jesus, My Son, felt the weight and the burden of all the sins of each creature. And I, your Mama, followed Him in everything, and felt within My Maternal Heart the New Generation of the Pains of My Jesus, and the New Generation of all the souls whom, as Mother, together with Jesus I was to Generate to Grace, to Light, to the New Life which My Dear Son came to bring upon earth.
My daughter, you must know that from the moment I was Conceived, I Loved you as Mother, I felt you in My Heart, I Burned with Love for you, but I did not understand why. The Divine Fiat made me do facts, but kept the Secret hidden from Me. But as He Incarnated Himself, He revealed the Secret to Me, and I comprehended the Fecundity of My Maternity—that I was to be not only Mother of Jesus, but Mother of All; and this Maternity was to be formed on the stake of Sorrow and of Love. My daughter, how much I have Loved you, and I Love you.
Now listen to Me, dear daughter—what extent one can reach when the Divine Will takes Operating Life in the creature, and the human will lets It Work without impeding Its Step. This Fiat, which by Nature Possesses the Generative Virtue, Generates all Goods in the creature; It renders her Fecund, giving her Maternity over all, over all Goods, and over He who created her. Maternity says and means True Love, Heroic Love, Love that is content with dying to give Life to the one It has Generated. If this is not there, the word maternity is sterile, is empty, and is reduced to words, but does not exist with facts. Therefore, if you, My daughter, want the Generation of all Goods, let the Fiat take Operating Life in you, which will give you the Maternity, and you will Love everyone with Love of Mother. And I, your Mama, will teach you how to fecundate in you this Maternity, all Holy and Divine.
