Offering of self as victim together with Luisa on Ascension Thursday
“As far as the vow, do it on the day of Ascension, so that sweet Jesus may bring your human will to Heaven as the most beautiful victory He has achieved over you…”
Letter of Luisa #19
My lovable Jesus, I come to You, under the blue mantle of Our Blessed Mother Mary, linked with Luisa, and offer myself as victim of Your hidden Life. As Your hidden Life was Victim for the whole interior life of man, which repaired for all the bad thoughts, desires, tendencies and affections of man, so I again link myself to Luisa, offer myself as victim for the purpose of also Living Your hidden Life.
With Luisa, I consecrate and offer all my interior to You Lord Jesus to satisfy You for the evil interiors of other creatures. In this way I will better know how much Your state of Victim cost You. Please accept my humble offering of victim, which is equivalent to receiving a second Baptism with effects that are even greater than Baptism itself.
With Luisa, I want to rise again in Your own Life as victim to live in You and of You. O Jesus, wash me from every stain of sin and give me that New Baptism which You spoke gave to Luisa. Strengthen me in Grace to be able to be admitted to live with You. With Luisa I beg You to consider anything I do as Yours rather than my own, so that whatever I pray, speak or work, I can say that these are Your things.
With Luisa I promise to be more humble, trusting, brave and more intimate with You, with no thought for myself, knowing that I am no longer owner of myself, otherwise I would cancel this state of victim.
This Baptism of Victim shall be a Baptism of Fire that will not only purify, but also consume any passions and evil tendencies. You Yourself shall baptize my soul, O Jesus, so that Your Thought baptizes my thought, Your Heartbeat shall baptize my heartbeat, Your Desire shall baptize my desire. Always linked with Luisa, I promise to never take back what I give You – my human will – confident that Luisa shall fulfill this promise in me.
As You told Luisa, “This is the Mission of missions – the Apostolate of apostolates,” and always one with Luisa I promise to be always with You, and all intent within You.
(From the offering of self as victim of Fr. G. – Volume 11 – March 8 & 13, 1912)
Letter 19. To Mrs. Antonietta Savorani, widow from Faenza
Fiat – In Voluntate Dei!
My good daughter in the Divine Volition,
Your letter brought me great contentment, especially in hearing that you want to strip yourself of the mourning clothes of the human will; and I briefly answer to your difficulties. To live in the Divine Will is not so difficult as you and others believe, nor does sweet Jesus want impossible things, nor can He teach difficult things; rather, in all He teaches, His love is so great that not only does He facilitate His teachings, but in order to make all that He wants and teaches easier, He puts Himself at our disposition, doing together with us all that He wants and teaches. My daughter, everything is in a strong, firm, constant resolution to deliver our will into the hands of Jesus, so that His Will may underlie each one of our acts. Therefore, in all our being, in the most natural acts of life – in food, in sleep, in sufferings, in prayer, and also in legitimate pleasures, the Divine Will must have Its royal place, Its field of action, and our will must be the ground in which to receive these divine acts, and the footstool on which the Divine Will must place these acts; and these acts, united together, will form its Life. Life cannot be formed with one single act, but with many acts, repeated and incessant.
Moreover, the love of Jesus, His sighs and also His tears for desire that His Will reign in us as life, are such that He never leaves us alone; He Himself descends into the depth of our will; He molds it, strengthens it, purifies it, prepares it, and does all that we do together with us. So, if we want it, everything is done; however, it is not that we must no longer feel our will: to operate on a dead will would be neither ours nor Jesus’ victory. The dead are buried. Therefore Jesus wants our will alive, so that it may feel all the good, as His operating Will lays Its acts in it. The human will becomes the residence of the Divine, and gives It all the freedom to dominate and to do whatever It wants.
Do you see, then, how easy it is? Nor does one have to be a religious to do this. The Sanctity of living in the Divine Will is for all; or rather, to tell the truth, It is for all those who want It. Therefore, get down to work; tell Jesus from the heart: “I firmly want it, I continuously want it; I want it!”, and Jesus will make wonders, and will use everything you do and suffer as raw material so that you may ask for His Will and let It operate with Its creative virtue.
As far as the vow, do it on the day of Ascension, so that sweet Jesus may bring your will to Heaven as the most beautiful victory He has achieved over you…
I finish here, as I cannot continue further. Pray for me and make yourself a saint, for Jesus wants it. I leave you in the place of honor of the Divine Will, with a thousand regards,
the little daughter of the Divine Will
