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.

“More than forty priests, the Capitolo [the Ecclesiastical authorities] and the local Clergy, were present; the sisters, who brought her on their shoulders in turns, and an immense crowd of citizens. The streets along which the procession was to pass, were packed – incredibly; even the balconies and the roofs of the houses were crammed with people, and the procession proceeded with great difficulty. The funeral was celebrated in the Matrice Church by the entire Capitolo. All the people of Corato followed the body of Luisa to the cemetery, and everyone tried to bring home a souvneir of the flowers which had accompanied and touched the body. A few years later, the body of Luisa was transferred to her Parish Church of Santa Maria Greca, where she is humbly waiting for her glorification.

And since My Will wants to Establish Its Kingdom in the midst of peoples, through you I want to Deposit this Celestial Doctrine in My ministers as My New Apostles, so that first I may Form with them the Link of Connection with My Will, and then they may transmit it into the midst of peoples.”

Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will – day nineteen – “…while I was Praying in My little room, an Angel Came, Sent from Heaven as Messenger of the Great King.  He Came before Me, and Bowing, he Hailed Me:  “Hail, O Mary, our Queen; the Divine Fiat has Filled You with Grace.  He has already Pronounced His Fiat – that He wants to Descend; He is already Behind my shoulders, but He wants your Fiat to Form the Fulfillment of His Fiat.” At such a Great Announcement, So Much Desired by Me – although I had never thought I would Be the Chosen One – I was Stupefied and Hesitated one instant.  But the Angel of the Lord told Me:  “Do not fear, Our Queen, for You have Found Grace before God.  You have Conquered your Creator; therefore, to Complete the Victory – Pronounce your Fiat.” I Pronounced My Fiat, and – Oh! Marvel – the Two Fiat Fused Together and the Divine Word Descended into Me.  My Fiat, which was Endowed with Same Value as the Divine Fiat, from the Seed of My Humanity, Formed the Tiny Little Humanity which was to Enclose the Word; and the Great Prodigy of the Incarnation was Accomplished.”
