Prayer for Archbishop Giovan Battista Pichierri in his passing from this world,

and for the new Archbishop Leonardo D’Ascenzo:

Abba Father, In the Name of Jesus, in the Unity and Power of the Holy Spirit,

Under the Mantle of Mary, With All the Angels and Saints,

through the Intercession of The Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, we pray,


“Oh! Lord, Reward Archbishop Pichierri – You Yourself.” (V1)

“Remember how many sacrifices he made, how much zeal he had for Your Honor and Glory

and then, how much he did for Luisa and the little family of the Divine Will and how much he suffered.

On this point You must Render him to us, by Letting him Pass even Into Heaven.” (V9–10.17.10)


We Your little children of the Holy Divine Will pray You

from the depths of our hearts to bless Archbishop D’Ascenzo

that he may love deeply Your little daughter of the Divine Will, Luisa Piccarreta

and will work fervently to establish the Reign of Your Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven.


Bind Archbishop D”Ascenzo to Your Holy Divine Will and seal all his works with the Divine Seal.

May the Divine Will be his breath and heartbeat so that he will be Carried in Your Divine Arms,

and will be able to fulfill Your Desires of making Your Divine Will

Known, Loved and Possessed by all.


“I pray You to Give Grace to the one appointed in charge of Luisa’s Cause,

Archbishop D’Ascenzo,

to make him All Yours, According to Your Heart” (V2-6.23.99)


We pray You to make him live of the Divine Will

and that the Divine Will may keep him sheltered, protected from all dangers and free from all evils.

“…I pray the Most Holy Virgin to Intercede with the Most Holy Trinity for Archbishop Pichierri,

and for Archbishop D’Ascenzo,

for the Cause of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta,

and for All the little family of the Little Daughter of the Divine Will.” (V4 – 1.26.02)


Please take our humble prayer and make it Your Command,

Let All Be Accomplished and Completed In Your Most Holy Divine Will.

We Believe, We receive!
