Luisa and the Ascension in the Divine Will
V16 – 5.29.24 – I was thinking of when my Sweet Jesus went back to Heaven in His Glorious Ascension, and therefore of the sorrow of the Apostles in remaining deprived of such a great Good; and my Sweet Jesus, Moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, the greatest sorrow for all of the Apostles, in their entire lives, was to remain deprived of their Master. As they saw Me Ascend to Heaven, their hearts were consumed with the Pain of My Privation; and much more sharp and penetrating was this Pain, since it was not a human pain – something material that they were losing – but a Divine Pain: It was a God that they were losing. And even though I had My Humanity, as It Resurrected, It was Spiritualized and Glorified, therefore all the Pain was in their souls; and penetrating them completely, it made them feel consumed with grief, such as to form in them the most Harrowing and Painful Martyrdom. But all this was necessary for them.
One can say that until that moment, they were nothing but tender babies in Virtues and in the Knowledge of Divine Things, and of My own Person. I could say that I was in their midst and they did not really Know Me, or Love Me. But when they saw Me Ascend into Heaven, the pain of losing Me tore the veil, and they recognized Me with so much Certainty as the true Son of God, that the intense Sorrow of no longer seeing Me in their midst Delivered Firmness in Good and Strength to suffer anything for Love of the One Whom they had lost. It Delivered the Light of Divine Science; it removed the swaddling clothes of their childhood, and formed them as intrepid men – no longer fearful, but Courageous… The Pain Transformed them and formed in them the True Character of Apostles. What I could not obtain with My Presence, I obtained with the Pain of My Privation.
Now, My daughter, a little Lesson for you.
Your life can be called a Continuous Pain of losing Me and a Continuous Joy of Acquiring Me. But between the Pain of the loss and the Joy of Acquiring Me, how many Surprises have I not made you? How many things have I not told you? It was Pain and the Painful Martyrdom of losing Me to Prepare you and Dispose you to hear the Sublime Lessons on My Will. In fact, how many times it seemed to you that you had lost Me, and while you were immersed in your harrowing Pain, I would come back to you with one of the most Beautiful Lessons on My Will, and I would make the New Joy of gaining Me come back, to Dispose you once again to the Piercing Pain of My absence? I can say that the Pain of remaining deprived of Me has Delivered within you the Effects, the Value, the Knowledges, the Foundation of My Will.
It was Necessary that I behave with you in this Way – that is, coming to you very often, and leaving you prey to the Pain of being deprived of Me. Since I had Established that I would Manifest to you, in a Way all Special, many things about My Will, I had to leave you prey to a Continuous Divine Pain, because My Will is Divine, and only upon a Divine Pain could It Establish Its Throne and Lay Its Dominion; and assuming the Attitude of a Master, I Communicated the Knowledge of My Will, as much as it is possible to a creature. Many shall be amazed in hearing of the Continuous Visits I made to you – which I have not done with others – and of your continuous Pain of My Privation. If you had not seen Me so many times, you would not have Known Me or Loved Me so much, because Each One of My Visits brings an additional Knowledge of Me and a New Love; and the more the soul Knows Me and Loves Me, the more her Pain is redoubled. And in coming, I kept provoking your Pain more intensely, because I Want My Will not to lack the Noble Courting of Pain, which makes the soul Firm and Strong, such that My Will is able to form My Stable Dwelling in her, and to give her New and Continuous Lessons on My Will. Therefore, I repeat it to you – let Me Do and Trust Me.”
V26 – 5.12.29 – After this, I was thinking about when Our Lord Ascended into Heaven, Glorious and Triumphant, with His Humanity no longer humiliated, subject to pains, with the insignia of Adam decayed, but untouchable by any pain, with the Insignia of the New Innocent Adam, with all the most Beautiful Prerogatives of Creation, Clothed with Light and Immortal.
But while I was thinking about this, my most Sweet Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, My Humanity Redid within Itself, and over Itself, all the evils of decayed humanity, to the point of dying, in order to give to it the Virtue of Rising again from the death to which it was subject. This is the reason why I did not leave the Kingdom of My Divine Will upon earth—because the humanity of Innocent Adam was missing, Glorious and Immortal, in order to be able to impetrate It and to receive the great Gift of My Fiat. Therefore, it was Necessary that My Humanity first Redo decayed humanity and give to it all the Remedies in order to Raise it again, and then die and Rise again with the Qualities of Innocent Adam, so as to be able to give to man what he lost. Not only this, but I Wanted to Ascend into Heaven with My Humanity as Beautiful, Clothed with Light, just as it came out of Our Creative Hands, so as to say to the Celestial Father: ‘My Father, look at Me, how My Humanity is Redone, how the Kingdom of Our Will is safe in It. I AM the Head of all, and the One Who Prays You has all the Rights to ask and to give what I Possess.’
“My daughter, an Innocent humanity, with all the Qualities with which it came out of Our Creative Hands, was Needed in order to Impetrate again the Kingdom of Our Will into the midst of creatures. Up to that time it was missing, and I Purchased it with My Death, and I Ascended into Heaven in order to Fulfill, with My First Task, My Second Task of Impetrating and Giving the Kingdom of My Divine Will upon earth. It is about two thousand years that this Humanity of Mine has been Praying, and Our Divine Majesty, feeling the Love of Creation that We had in Creating man overflow from Itself again—or rather, with greater intensity—and feeling Itself being Enraptured and Charmed by the Beauties of My Humanity, has Poured Itself out again; and Opening the Heavens, It has made the Rain of Light of the many Knowledges about My Fiat Rain down in torrents, so that, like rain, It may Descend upon souls, and with Its Light It may Vivify and Heal the human will, and Transforming it, It may cast the Root of My Will into the hearts, and may Lay Its Kingdom upon earth. In order for My Kingdom to come upon earth, first I had to make It Known, I had to make Known that It wants to Come to Reign. And I, as an elder brother of the human family, in order to give to it a Purchase so great, am making all the Arrangements in Heaven before the Divinity. Therefore, it was Necessary that I Ascend into Heaven with My Humanity Glorified, in order to be able to Purchase again the Kingdom of My Fiat for My brothers and children of Mine.”
V34 – 5.20.36 – After this I was accompanying the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven. How Beautiful He was, all Majesty, Dressed with the most Resplendent Light that Enraptured and Enchanted hearts to Love Him. And my Sweet Jesus, all Goodness and Love, told me: “My Blessed daughter, there is nothing that deals with My Life that does not symbolize the Kingdom of My Divine Will. On this day of My Ascension I felt Victorious and Triumphant. My Sufferings were already finished, rather I left My Sufferings already Suffered in the midst of My children whom I left on earth for Help, for Strength, and for Support, and as Refuge for where to hide in their sufferings so as to draw from Mine the Heroism in their sacrifices.
“I can say that I left My Sufferings, My Examples and My own Life, as sowing that, maturing and growing, would make the Kingdom of My Divine Will Arise. In fact I departed and I remained. I remained in virtue of My Sufferings. I remained in their hearts in order to be Loved. After My Most Holy Humanity Rose to Heaven, I felt more tightly the bond of the human family. So that I would not have to adapt Myself to not receiving the Love of My children and brothers whom I left on earth, I remained in the Most Holy Sacrament in order to continuously give Myself to them, and they to give themselves to Me, in order to let them find the Rest, the Relief and the Remedy for all their needs. Our Works do not suffer from changeability; what We do one time We repeat always.
“In addition to this, on this day of My Ascension I had a Double Crown: the Crown of My children whom I brought with Me into the Celestial Fatherland, and the Crown of My children whom I left on earth, symbol of the few who shall begin the Kingdom of My Divine Will. All those who saw Me Ascend to Heaven received so many Graces, that everyone gave his life in order to make the Kingdom of the Redemption known, and they cast the foundations in order to form My Church so as to gather all the human generations into Her Maternal Womb. The same for the first children of the Kingdom of My Will; they shall be few, but the Graces with which they shall be invested shall be such and so many, that they shall give their lives in order to call everyone to Live in this Holy Kingdom.
“A Cloud of Light invested Me, that took My Presence away from the sight of the disciples, who remained as enraptured in watching My Person. So much was the Enchantment of My Beauty, that it kept their pupils Enraptured, so much so that they did not know how to lower them to look at the earth, so much so that an Angel was needed to shake them and make them return to the Cenacle. This too is a symbol of the Kingdom of My Volition. Such and so much will be the Light that shall invest Its First children that they shall carry the Beauty, the Enchantment, the Peace of the Divine Fiat, in a Way that they shall easily surrender themselves to wanting to Know and to Love a Good so Great.
“Now, in the midst of the disciples there was My Mama, Who Assisted at My Departure for Heaven. This is the most Beautiful Symbol. Just as She is the Queen of My Church, She Assists it, She Protects It, She Defends It, so She shall sit in the midst of the Children of My Will. She shall always be the Engine, the Life, the Guide, the Perfect Model, the Teacher of the Kingdom of the Divine Fiat that remains so close to Her Heart. They are Her Anxieties, Her Ardent Desires, Her Deliriums of Maternal Love because She wants Her children on earth in the Kingdom where She Lived. She is not content that She has Her children in Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will, but She wants them also on earth. She feels that She has not completed the Task given to Her by God as Mother and Queen. As long as the Divine Will does not Reign on earth in the midst of creatures, Her Mission is not finished. She wants Her children who are like Her and who possess the Inheritance of their Mama.
“So the Great Lady is all Eye in order to Look, all Heart in order to Love, so as to help the one whom She sees in some way disposed, that they want to Live of Divine Will. Therefore in the difficulties, think that She is Around you, She Sustains you, She Fortifies you, She takes your volition in Her Maternal Hands in order to make it receive the Life of the Supreme Fiat.”
V35 – 1.24.38 – After this, I continued to think about the Prodigies of the Divine Volition, and my Beloved Jesus added: “Daughter of My Will, as your Jesus said, in Descending from Heaven to earth: ‘I leave and I stay;’ when He Ascended into Heaven He said: ‘I stay and I leave.’ My Word repeats upon Descending as Sacrament in the creatures: ‘I leave and I remain in the Tabernacles.’ In the Same Way, the creature who Lives in My Will can repeat My Word in all her acts. As soon as she begins her act, her Jesus is formed in that act. My Life has the Virtue of Multiplying Itself to Infinity as many times as I want. Therefore, in all Truth, she can say: ‘I leave and I stay. I leave for Heaven to Beatify It, to reach my Home and to make Known to everyone my Dear Jesus, Whom I Enclosed in my act so that all may Enjoy Him and Love Him. I stay on earth, as my Life, Support and Defense for all my brothers and sisters.’ How Beautiful one Act in My Will!”
Letters of Luisa:
- 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
To Mother General of the Daughters of the Divine Zeal
Fiat – In Voluntate Dei!
My good reverend Mother general,
Today is the sacred day of ASCENSION, the name of which you carry, and I feel the duty, although I am the least among all, to send you my sincere and affectionate wishes. But what wishes can I give you? I wouldn’t know what else to wish you other than that dear Jesus may make facts correspond to the name He gave you – that is to say, that He may take each one of your acts within Himself and bring it to Heaven, so making of all your life a continuous ASCENSION, like many conquests that sweet Jesus takes from earth to Heaven, and like the triumph of His Love in which your life must be consumed. To live in order to be consumed in love is the most beautiful act, which, putting us on the stake of love, consumes us with Jesus and makes His Life rise within us.
But this is not enough, most dear Mother, if I don’t let my Divine Fiat act. Therefore I send it to you with all my heart, and I pray that It may pronounce Its Omnipotent Fiat in the center of your soul, and create Its Life within it, nourish it, and carry you always in Its arms of light; and that It may pronounce Its Fiat in every action you do and form in it Its Heaven, the most beautiful stars, the brightest sun, in order to make the most adorned room in which to reign and form Its first Kingdom.
My Mother, He always gives something to do to those who live in His Divine Volition. He lets not one of our acts escape Him without animating it, molding it, investing it, caressing it with His Creative Virtue. These are the best wishes I can send you, and I want you to accept them, so that the Divine Will may fulfill the wishes I am sending you with all my heart. I commend myself very much to your prayers… Luisa Piccarreta
Day Twenty-nine The Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will. The Hour of the Triumph. Apparitions of Jesus. The Fugitives cling to the Virgin as the Ark of Salvation and Forgiveness. Jesus departs for Heaven.
The soul to her Mother Queen:
Admirable Mother, here I am again on your maternal knees, to unite myself with you in the feast and triumph of the Resurrection of our dear Jesus. How beautiful is your appearance today – all loveliness, all sweetness, all joy. I seem to see you risen together with Jesus. O holy Mama, in so much joy and triumph, do not forget your child. Enclose the seed of the Resurrection of Jesus in my soul, so that, by virtue of It, I may fully rise again in the Divine Will, and always live united with you and with my sweet Jesus.
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
Blessed child of my maternal heart, great was my joy and my triumph in the Resurrection of my Son; I felt reborn and risen in Him. All of my sorrows changed into joys and into seas of grace, of light, of love, of forgiveness for the creatures – and laid my maternity, with the seal of my sorrows, over all my children, given to me by Jesus.
Now, listen to me, dear child. You must know that after the death of my Son I withdrew in the cenacle, together with beloved John and Magdalene. But my heart was pierced because only John was near me, and in my sorrow I said: “And the other apostles…where are they?”
But as they heard that Jesus had died, touched by special graces, all moved and weeping, the fugitives drew around me, one by one, surrounding me like a crown; and with tears and sighs, they asked for my forgiveness for having so cravenly abandoned their Master, and having run away. I welcomed them maternally in the ark of refuge and salvation of my heart; I assured them of the forgiveness of my Son, and I encouraged them not to fear. I said to them that their destiny was in my hands, because He had given them all to me as my children, and I recognized them as such.
Blessed child, you know that I was present at the Resurrection of my Son. But I did not say a word to anyone, waiting for Jesus Himself, to manifest Himself as risen, gloriously and triumphantly. The first one to see him risen was the fortunate Magdalene; then the pious women. And all came to me telling me that they had seen Jesus risen, and that the sepulcher was empty; and I listened to all; and with an air of triumph I confirmed all in the faith of the Resurrection. By the evening, almost all of the apostles had seen Him, and all felt triumphant at having been the apostles of Jesus. What change of scene, dear child! – symbol of those who have first let themselves be dominated by the human will, represented by the apostles who run away, abandoning their Master; and their fear and fright is such that they hide, and Peter reaches the point of denying Him. Oh, if they had been dominated by the Divine Will, they would never have fled from their Master, but, courageous and triumphant, would never have departed from His side, and would have felt honored to give their life to defend Him.
Now, dear child, my beloved Son Jesus spent forty days, risen, on the earth. Very often He appeared to His apostles and disciples to confirm them in the faith and certainty of His Resurrection; and when He was not with the apostles, He was with His Mama in the cenacle, surrounded by the souls who had come out of Limbo. But at the end of the forty days, Jesus instructed the apostles, and leaving His Mama as their guide and Teacher, He promised us the descent of the Holy Spirit. Then, blessing us all, He departed, taking flight for the vault of the heavens, together with that great crowd of people who had left Limbo. All those who were there, and they were a great number, saw Him ascend; but as He got up high, a cloud of light removed Him from their sight.
Now, my child, your Mama followed Him into Heaven, and was present at the great feast of the ASCENSION. More so, since the celestial Fatherland was not foreign to me; and then, the feast of my Son, Ascended into Heaven, would not have been complete without me.
Now a little word to you, dearest child. All that you have heard and admired has been nothing other than the power of the Divine Will operating in me and in my Son. This is why I so much love to enclose in you the life of the Divine Will; It is an operative life, because everyone has it – but the majority of them keep It suffocated and to their service.. And while It could operate prodigies of sanctity, of grace, and works worthy of Its power, It is
forced by the creatures to remain with folded arms, without being able to display its power. Therefore, be attentive, and let the Heaven of the Divine Will extend within you, and with Its power, work whatever It wants, and however It wants.
Most holy Mama, your beautiful lessons enrapture me, and – oh, how I wish and sigh for the operating life of the Divine Will in my soul! I too want to be inseparable from my Jesus and from you, my Mama. But to be sure of this, you must take on the commitment to keep my will enclosed in your maternal heart; and even if I should see that it costs me much, you must never give it to me. Only then will I be certain; otherwise, they will always be words, but I will never do facts. Therefore, your child commends herself to you, and hopes for everything from you.
Today, to honor me, you will make three genuflections in the act in which my Son ascended into Heaven, and pray to Him that He might let you ascend in the Divine Will.
My Mama, with your power, triumph in my soul, and let me stay in the Will of God.
Rounds: Twenty-fourth Hour
The soul is present at the ASCENSION of Jesus, and asks to be able sing, always, her loving refrain: “May the Kingdom of your Divine Will come upon earth”.
My risen Jesus, my “I love You” follows You in all the acts You did as risen, in the midst of your disciples. I call Heaven and earth to accompany You in your ascending into Heaven when, triumphant, You opened Its doors, which had been closed for many centuries to poor humanity. I place my “I love You” upon those eternal doors, and I ask You, for the sake of that blessing which You gave to all your disciples who were present at the feast of your ASCENSION into Heaven, to bless all human wills, that they may know the great good of living in your Will; and for the sake of that love with which You opened for us the doors of Heaven, let your Divine Will descend from those very doors to reign upon earth as It reigns in Heaven.
“My blessed daughter, there is no part of my life which does not symbolize the Kingdom of my Divine Will. On this day of my ASCENSION, I felt victorious and triumphant. My pains had already ended; or rather, I was leaving my pains, already suffered, in the midst of my children whom I was leaving on earth, as help, as strength and support… So I was leaving and yet staying. I was staying by virtue of my pains; I was staying in their hearts in order to be loved, after my Most Holy Humanity would ascend into Heaven…” (Vol.34 – May 20, 1936)
Prayer of Offering of Self as Victim Together with Luisa Piccarreta 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 Piccarreta the little daughter of the Divine Will, and together with her offer myself as victim of Your hidden Life. As Your hidden Life was Victim for the whole interior life of mankind, which repaired for the bad thoughts, desires, tendencies and affections of mankind, so I, linked to Luisa Piccarreta, offer myself as victim for the purpose of Your hidden Life, Lord Jesus.
With Luisa Piccarreta, I consecrate and offer all of my interior to You, Lord God, to satisfy You for all the evil interiors of other creatures. In this way I will better know how much Your state of Victim cost You, Lord Jesus. Please accept my humble offering of victim, which is equivalent as You said to Luisa to receiving a second Baptism with effects that are even greater than Baptism itself.
With Luisa Piccarreta, 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 and give me a New Baptism. Strengthen me in Grace to be able to be admitted to Live with You, Lord God. With Luisa Piccarreta I beg You Lord to consider anything that I do as Yours rather than my own, so that whatever I pray, speak or work, I can say that these are Your things Lord.
With Luisa I promise to be more nimble, trusting, brave and more intimate with You, Lord Jesus, 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 will be a Baptism of Fire that will not only purify me, but also consume any of my passions and evil tendencies. Lord Jesus, You Yourself will baptize my soul, so that Your Thought baptizes my thought, Your Heartbeat will baptize my heartbeat, Your Desire will baptize my desires. Linked with Luisa Piccarreta, I promise never to take back what I humbly today give to You Lord Jesus – that is, my human will – confident that being linked to Luisa Piccarreta will fulfill this promise in me.
As You Lord Jesus told Luisa, “This is the Mission of missions – this is the Apostolate of apostolates,” and being one with Luisa I promise to be always with You, and all intent within You, Lord God. Amen.
(From the offering of self as victim of Fr. G. – Volume 11 – March 8 & 13, 1912)
