73rd ANNIVERSARY OF LUISA’S TRANSIT INTO ETERNITY
Psalms 50:14 – Restore unto me the Joy of Thy Salvation and Strengthen me with a Perfect Spirit.
Sophonias (Zephaniah) 3:9 – Because then I will Restore to the people a Chosen lip, that all may call upon the Name of the Lord, and may serve Him with one shoulder.
Machabees 7:23 – But the Creator of the world that Formed the nativity of man, and that found out the Origin of all, He will Restore to you Again in His Mercy, both Breath and Life, as now you despise yourselves for the sake of His Laws.
God’s Spirit and Word in the Time of the Promises (CCC) – In the Kingdom and the Exile.
710 The forgetting of the Law and the infidelity to the Covenant end in death: it is the Exile, apparently the failure of the promises, which is in fact the Mysterious Fidelity of the Savior God and the Beginning of a Promised Restoration, but according to the Spirit.
“You Did Not Abandon Him to the Domain of Death” (CCC) – 410 After his fall, man was not abandoned by God. On the contrary, God calls him and in a Mysterious Way heralds the Coming Victory over evil and his Restoration from his fall.
304 This passage in Genesis is called the Protoevangelium (“first Gospel”): the first announcement of the Messiah and Redeemer, of a battle between the serpent and the Woman, and of the Final Victory of a descendant of Hers.
The Spirit of Christ in the Fullness of Time (CCC) – John, precursor, prophet, and baptist
720 …with John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit begins the Restoration to man of “the Divine Likeness,” prefiguring what he would achieve with and in Christ. John’s baptism was for repentance; baptism in water and the Spirit will be a New Birth.
From the Book of Heaven – V26 – Apr. 7, 1929 – “Look and listen, My daughter Luisa: in the beginning, when Adam and Eve were Created, Eden was given to them as their Dwelling, in which they were Happy and Holy. This Garden (where Luisa lived in the orphanage founded by St. Annibale in Corato)is a simile of that Eden, though it is not as Beautiful and Flowery. Now, Know that I have permitted your coming to this house, that is surrounded by a garden, for you to be the New Eve; not Eve the tempter, who deserved to be put out of Happy Eden, but Eve the Reformer and the Restorer, who will call again the Kingdom of My Divine Will upon earth.
“Ah! Yes, you Luisa will be the Seed, the Cement on the woodworm that the human will has; you Luisa will be the Beginning of a New Happy Era, and this is why I Centralize in you Luisa the Joy, the Goods, the Happiness of the Beginning of Creation, and I Love to Repeat the Conversations, the Lessons, the Instructions that I would have given if man had not withdrawn from Our Divine Will. Therefore, be Attentive, and let your Flight in It be Continuous.”
V12 – Jan. 7, 1921 – “My daughter Luisa, do you see how much I Love you? I Wanted to Fill All your heart with the Milk of Grace and of Love; so, everything you will say and do, will be nothing other than the Outpouring of the Grace with which I Filled you. You will do nothing – you will just place your volition at the Mercy of My Will, and I will do Everything. You will be nothing but the Sound of My Voice, the Bearer of My Will, the Destroyer of the Virtues in a human manner, and the Restorer of the Virtues in a Divine Manner, which are Founded on an Eternal, Immense, Infinite Point.”
Acts 3:19-21 – Be penitent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out. That when the Times of Refreshment shall come from the Presence of the Lord, and He shall send Him who hath been preached unto you, Jesus Christ, Whom Heaven indeed Must receive, until the times of the Restitution of all things, which God hath Spoken by the mouth of His holy prophets, from the beginning of the world.
V2 – Oct. 7, 1899 – “My beloved Luisa, for now it is not necessary to make you understand the purpose of your state for yourself and for the peoples, but I will show it to you when you come to Heaven, and on the Day of Judgment I will show it to all nations.”
V4 – May 18, 1900 – “Be cheered, do not fear, try to fill your interior with Me, and to stuff it with all virtues, to the point of overflowing outside; and when you come to make this overflow, then will I take you to Heaven, and all your Privations will end.”
V22 – June 20, 1927 – “So, when you come to the Celestial Fatherland, Luisa, your Love will not depart from the earth, but will continue to Love in each creature. Therefore, even from Now, My Divine Fiat makes you Extend your Love to the past, to the present and to the future, to give you the Right that your Love may Extend Everywhere and to All Times, and it may Never cease to Love. Here is the Great Difference between One Who Lives in My Will and one who lives outside of It.”
THE LAST WORDS OF LUISA PICCARRETA, HER SPIRITUAL TESTIMONY
March 4, 1947
“Now I die with Greater Contentment, because the Divine Will has Consoled me more than usual with Its Presence in these last few moments of my life.
Now I see a Long, Beautiful and Spacious Road, all Illuminated by an Infinite number of Resplendent Suns – Oh, yes, I recognize them! They are all my Acts done in the Divine Will!
This is the Road that I Must Now take; it is the Road that the Divine Will has Prepared for me. It’s the Road of my Victory: it’s the Way of my Glory, which will Unite me with the Immense Happiness of the Divine Will.
“It’s my Road; it’s the Road that I have Prepared for you. It’s the Road that I will keep Reserved for all the souls who will ever want to Live in the Divine Will.”
