Psalms Chapter 51
Have mercy on me, God, in your goodness; in your abundant compassion blot out my offense.
Wash away all my guilt; from my sin cleanse me.
For I know my offense; my sin is always before me.
Against you alone have I sinned;
I have done such evil in your sight that you are just in your sentence, blameless when you condemn.
True, I was born guilty, a sinner, even as my mother conceived me.
Still, you insist on sincerity of heart; in my inmost being teach me wisdom.
Cleanse me with hyssop, that I may be pure; wash me, make me whiter than snow.
Let me hear sounds of joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
Turn away your face from my sins; blot out all my guilt.
A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit.
Do not drive me from your presence, nor take from me your holy spirit.
Restore my joy in your salvation; sustain in me a willing spirit.
I will teach the wicked your ways, that sinners may return to you.
Rescue me from death, God, my saving God, that my tongue may praise your healing power.
Lord, open my lips; my mouth will proclaim your praise.
For you do not desire sacrifice; a burnt offering you would not accept.
My sacrifice, God, is a broken spirit; God, do not spurn a broken, humbled heart.
Make Zion prosper in your good pleasure; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
Then you will be pleased with proper sacrifice, burnt offerings and holocausts;
then bullocks will be offered on your altar.
The Baptism of Victim, Baptism of Fire
The Mission of Missions – the Apostolate of Apostolates
O Jesus and Mary united with the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta we pray in the Most Holy Divine Will, one with You, so that the many Wonders of the Divine Will begin in the little children linked to Luisa. We pray the Divine Will have the First Place in our lives, as Luisa prayed, so that all the freedom of The Divine Will begin to Operate also in her little children.
O Jesus, take our human will, our words, our acts and all that we want to do in The Divine Will—covering our human will with Your Creative Virtue, pronouncing Its Fiat in our human will, and form as many Lives for as many existing souls past, present and future.
O Jesus, we pray in the Most Holy Divine Will for the New Baptism by Fire that You gave Luisa, which is even more than Baptism itself. We pray, in our free will, that Your Most Holy Divine Will give the little children of Luisa the Grace to set aside our human wills, so that the little children Live without the passions, the weaknesses and all that is human; and that the little children of Luisa begin to Live the Life of the Virtues, of the Fortitude and of All the Divine Qualities that You, O Jesus have desired for mankind beginning with Adam.
O Jesus, we pray You for this Great Grace to accept us as victims, since becoming a victim is equivalent to receiving the Second Baptism by Fire, and with effects even greater than Baptism itself. May we Rise again in Your Own Divine Life and, since the little children of Luisa, the victims, shall begin to Live in You, of You and for You.
O Jesus, wash the little children of Luisa from every stain. Give the little children of Luisa a New Baptism by Fire and strengthen them in Grace, so that they be admitted to Live one with You.
O Jesus, from now on consider anything and everything the little children linked to Luisa do as Yours Jesus, rather than their own. Whether they pray, speak or work, they shall always say that these are Your things, Lord Jesus.
Baptism at birth is by water; and it has the virtue to purify, but does not take away the tendencies and passions. The Baptism of victim is Baptism by Fire, therefore it has not only the virtue to purify, but also to consume any passions and evil tendencies.
O Jesus, You Yourself baptize the little children of Luisa, little by little:
O Jesus, Your thought baptizes the thought of the victim souls;
O Jesus, Your heartbeat baptizes the heartbeat of the little children;
O Jesus, Your desire the desire, and with everything else of the little children linked to Luisa.
This Baptism is done between You Lord Jesus, and the little children of Luisa, according to whether we give ourselves completely to You without ever taking back what we have giving to You, so that we shall not feel the evil tendencies ever again. May this come quickly from our state of victim which is the New Baptism of Fire.
O Jesus, hurry, may Thy Kingdom come Thy Will be done, soon and may the little children of Luisa be always attentive, for this is: “the Mission of Missions – the Apostolate of Apostolates.”
O Jesus, we desire to be one with You, and all intent within You. Fiat! Amen.
V36-4.12.38 “My blessed daughter of My Divine Will, how many Wonders My Will can make in the creature, as long as she gives It the First Place and all the Freedom to Operate. My Divine Will takes the human will, the word, the act that the creature wants to do, as part of Itself—covers it with Its Creative Virtue, pronounces Its Fiat in it, and forms as many Lives for as many existing creatures. You were asking in My Will for the Baptism of all newborn babies that will come to the light of the day—and then, for Its Life to Reign in them. My Will did not hesitate for a instant; as soon as you asked It pronounced Its “Fiat” and formed as many Lives from Itself for as many newborn babies coming to the light—Baptizing them, as you Luisa wanted, with Its First Light, and then giving each one of them Its Life. If these newborn babies, for lack of Knowledge, will not possess Our Life, this Life still remains for Us, and We shall have many Divine Lives that Love Us, Glorify Us, Bless Us, as We do Ourselves. These Divine Lives are Our Greatest Glory, but they don’t put aside the creature Luisa, who gave Our Fiat the opportunity to form so many of Our Lives for these newborn babies who are coming to the light; rather, they keep her Luisa hidden in themselves to let her Luisa Love as they Love, and let her Luisa do what they do. Neither would they set the Newborn babies aside; rather, they would give them So Much Attention, Guard and Defend them as to be able to Reign in their souls…”
V9 – 3.23.10 “My daughter, I recommend that you not get out of my Will, because my Will contains such power as to be a new Baptism for the soul – and even more than Baptism itself. In fact, while in the Sacraments there is part of my Grace, in my Will there is the whole fullness of It. In the Baptism, the stain of original sin is removed, but passions and weaknesses remain. In my Will, since the soul destroys her own volition, she also destroys passions, weaknesses and all that is human; and she lives of the virtues, of the fortitude and of all the Divine qualities.”
V11 – 3.8.12 “My daughter, tell him of the great grace I give to him by accepting him as a victim, since becoming a victim is equivalent to receiving a second Baptism, and with effects even greater than Baptism. In fact, it is about rising again in my own Life and, since the victim has to live in Me and of Me, I need to wash him from every stain, giving him a new Baptism and strengthening him in Grace, to be able to admit him to live with Me. Therefore, from now on I will consider anything he does as mine rather than his own. So, whether he prays, speaks or works, he will say that these are My things.”
V11 – 3.13.12 The victim Baptism by Fire has effects superior to the Baptism by water.
Jesus continues to speak about the state of victim, telling me: “My daughter, the Baptism at birth is by water; it has the virtue to purify, but not to take away tendencies and passions. On the other hand, the Baptism of victim is Baptism by fire, therefore it has not only the virtue to purify, but also to consume any passion and evil tendencies. I Myself baptize the soul, bit by bit: my thought baptizes the thought of the victim soul; my heartbeat baptizes her heartbeat; my desire her desire, and so on. This Baptism is done between Myself and the soul, according to whether she gives herself to Me without ever taking back what she gave Me.
This is why, my daughter, you don’t feel evil tendencies and such. It comes from your state of victim, and I tell you this for your consolation. So, tell Father G. to be well attentive, for this is the mission of missions – the apostolate of apostolates. I want him always with Me, and all intent within Me.”
