2/2 – PRESENTATION OF THE LORD – New and Traditional
Also known as the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Candlemas Day

Writings of Luisa released from the Vatican Secret Archives 24 years ago on this date 2.2.96

Luisa’s 1st Mystical Marriage – Vol 1 – “The longed-for day finally arrived, after not a little suffering. I remember that it was almost one year that I had been continuously in bed – it was the day of the Purity of Mary Most Holy. On the night before that day, my Lover Jesus made Himself seen all festive. He drew near me, took my heart in His hands, and He looked at it over and over again; He dusted it, and then He gave it back to me again. Then He took a Garment of Immense Beauty – it seemed to me that its background was a layer of Gold streaked with various colors – and He Clothed me with that Garment. Then He took two Gems, as if they were earrings, and He Bejeweled my ears. Then He Adorned my neck and my arms, and surrounded my forehead with a Crown of Immense Value, all enriched with Precious Stones and Gems, all Refulgent with Light; and it seemed to me that those Lights were as many Voices that resounded among themselves, speaking in clear notes of the Beauty, Power, Fortitude, and of all the other Virtues of my Spouse Jesus. Who can say what I comprehended, and in what sea of consolation my soul was swimming? It is impossible to say it.
     Now, while Jesus was Crowning my forehead, He told me: “Most sweet spouse, I place this Crown upon you so that nothing may be missing in order to make you worthy of being My spouse; but then, after our Wedding is done, I will take it with Me to Heaven, to keep it for you at the moment of your death.” Finally, He took a Veil and covered me completely with it, from head to foot; and He left me in that Way. Ah! it seemed to me that in that Veil there was a great Meaning, because the demons, in seeing me all covered with that Veil, were so frightened and had such fear of me, that they fled, terrified. The very Angels were around me with such veneration, that I myself was confounded and all full of blushing.
     On the morning of the aforementioned day, Jesus made Himself seen again all Affable, Sweet and Majestic, together with His Most Holy Mother and Saint Catherine. First, a Hymn was Sung by the Angels, while Saint Catherine assisted me, Mama took my hand, and Jesus put the Ring on my finger. Then, we Embraced and He Kissed me, and so did Mama also. Then we had a conversation, all of Love – Jesus told me of the Great Love He had for me, and I also told Him of the love I had for Him. The Most Holy Virgin made me comprehend the Great Grace I had received, and the correspondence with which I was to correspond to the Love of Jesus.
My Spouse Jesus gave me new rules in order to live more perfectly, but since it has been a long time, I don’t remember them so well; therefore I will skip them. And so it ended, for that day.”

2/9 – Septuagesima Sunday – Trad – is the name for the ninth Sunday before Easter, the third before Ash Wednesday. Septuagesima comes from the Latin word for “seventieth” – a period of seventy days made up of the nine weeks to Easter plus Easter Week, which would mystically represent the seventy-year Babylonian captivity.

2/11 – OUR LADY OF LOURDES – On December 8, 1854, Pope Pius IX proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception in the apostolic constitution Ineffabilis Deus. A little more than three years later, on February 11, 1858, a young Lady appeared to Bernadette Soubirous. This began a series of visions. During the apparition on March 25, the Lady identified Herself with the words: “I am the Immaculate Conception.”

2/17 – President’s Day – Pray for the President, Echo Luisa’s Prayer: V8 – 11.21.07“I was uniting myself with Our Lord, making His Thought, His Heartbeat, His Breath and all of His Movements one with mine, and then adding the intention of going to (the President and) all creatures, to give all this to all. And since I was united to Jesus in the Garden of Olives, I also gave to all and to each one, and also to the purging souls, the drops of Jesus’ Blood, His Prayers, His Pains and all the Good He did, so that all the breaths, movements and heartbeats of (the President and all) creatures might be Repaired, Purified, Divinized; and I gave the Fount of all Goods, which are Jesus’ Pains, as Remedies for all.”

2/20 – Feast of Sts. Francisco and Jacinta Marto – Pray for Our Lady’s Mission:
Three Appeals – Maternal Appeal“Do you see, My daughter? That same Infinite Love of God, Who wanted to use Me in the Redemption to make the Eternal Word Descend upon earth, Calls Me into the field once again, Entrusting to Me the Difficult Task, the Sublime Mandate to Form the children of the Kingdom of His Divine Will on earth. Therefore, with Maternal Care I put myself to Work, Preparing for you the Way which will Lead you to this Happy Kingdom.”
One with Luisa: “…Be my Mama, and I, Your little child, will let You do anything with me, so that Your Mandate may be the welcome one by me, and You may bring me in Your Arms to our Celestial Father, as the Accomplished Act of Your Divine Mandate.”

2/22 – FEAST OF THE CHAIR OF ST. PETER – Pray for our Holy Father who holds the Keys to the Kingdom:

Abba Father
In the Name of Jesus

the little daughter of the Divine Will,
We pray for a profound conversion of Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
Take our humble prayer that “the Pope will come out!”
We surrender this to You O Lord, make it Your Command!
We pray for the Fulfillment of that which Our Lord Foretold,
that the Pope will come out!
He will come out to console the peoples, because,
oppressed, tired, crushed, betrayed by so many lies…
they will ask the Holy Father to come into their midst! (V4 – 1.5.01)
