LUISA and MARRIAGE IN THE DIVINE WILL
Isaiah 54:5 “For he who has become your husband is your Maker; His name is the Lord of Hosts; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, called God of all the earth.”
Isaiah 62:5 “As a young man marries a virgin, your Builder shall marry you. And as a bridegroom rejoices in his bride so shall your God rejoice in you.”
2 Corinthians 11:2 “I am jealous of you with a jealousy of God Himself, since I have given you in marriage to one husband, presenting you as a chaste virgin to Christ.”
Matthew 26:29 “I tell you I will not drink this fruit of the vine from now until the day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s reign.”
John 3:29 “It is the groom who has the bride. The groom’s best man waits there listening for him and is overjoyed to hear his voice. That is my joy, and it is complete.”
Revelation 19:7 “Let us rejoice and be glad, and give him glory! For this is the wedding day of the Lamb; his bride has prepared herself for the wedding.”
V1 – … the Lord said to me: “Go to the confessor and ask him for the obedience. If he wants, you (Luisa) will tell him everything I (Jesus) told you (Luisa), and you (Luisa) will follow whatever he says. See, it will not be only for the good of creatures that I (Jesus) want these continuous sufferings, but also for your good. In this state of sufferings I (Jesus) will purify your soul thoroughly, in such a way as to dispose you (Luisa) to form a Mystical Marriage with Me; and after this, I (Jesus) will make the Last Transformation, in such a way that both of us will become like two candles placed on the fire – one is Transformed into the other, and they become one. In this way I (Jesus) will Transform Myself in you (Luisa), and you (Luisa) will remain crucified with Me. Ah! would you (Luisa) not be happy if you (Luisa) could say: ‘The Bridegroom is crucified, but the bride also is crucified’? ‘Ah! yes, there is nothing that renders me dissimilar from Him.’
…I (Luisa) remember that from the very beginning of my being continuously bedridden, my Lover Jesus would make Himself seen very often, which He had not done in the past. From the beginning He told me that He wanted me to take on a New Way of life in order to dispose myself to that Mystical Marriage which He had promised me. He would say to me: “Beloved (Luisa) of My Heart, I (Jesus) have put you (Luisa) in this state so that I (Jesus) might come more freely to converse with you (Luisa). See, I (Jesus) have freed you (Luisa) of all external occupations, so that, not only your soul, but also your body might be at My disposal, and so that you (Luisa) might remain in continuous holocaust before Me. See, had I (Jesus) not drawn you (Luisa) into this bed, since you (Luisa) would have to carry out your family duties and submit yourself to other sacrifices, I (Jesus) could not come so often and let you (Luisa) share in the offenses, just as I (Jesus) receive them; at most, I (Jesus) would have to wait for when you (Luisa) have fulfilled your duties. But now – no, we are free, there is no one left who may bother us and interrupt our conversation. From now on, My afflictions will be yours, and yours will be Mine; My sufferings yours, and yours Mine; My consolations yours, and yours Mine. We will unite all things together, and you (Luisa) will take interest in My things as if they were your own; and so I (Jesus) will do with yours. Between the two of us there will no longer be ‘this is mine, and this is yours,’ but everything will be in common, on both sides.
Do you know how I (Jesus) acted with you (Luisa)? Like a king when he wants to speak with his queen spouse, and she is with other ladies on other affairs. What does the king do? He takes her and brings her inside his room; they close the door, so that no one may go and interrupt their conversation and hear their secrets; and so, once they are alone, they communicate their consolations and their afflictions to each other. Now, if someone, imprudent, went to knock, shouting from behind the door, and did not leave them alone to enjoy their conversation – would the king not take offense? So have I (Jesus) done for you (Luisa), and in the same way I (Jesus) would be displeased if someone wanted to remove you (Luisa) from that state.”
He continued to tell me: “From you (Luisa) I (Jesus) want perfect conformity to My Most Holy Divine Will, in such a way that your will may be undone within Mine; and absolute detachment from everything – so much so, that I (Jesus) want all that is earth to be considered by you (Luisa) as dung and rot, which one is horrified by just looking at. And this because, even though one were not attached to earthly things, just by having them around and looking at them they cast shadow on the Celestial Things and prevent the Fulfillment of that Mystical Marriage which I (Jesus) promised you (Luisa). Even more, I (Jesus) want that, just as I (Jesus) was poor, you (Luisa) also imitate Me in poverty. You (Luisa) must consider yourself in this bed as a little poor one; the poor are content with anything they have, and they first thank Me, and then their benefactors. The same for you (Luisa): go along with everything that is given to you (Luisa) without asking for this or that, which might be a hindrance in your mind; but with holy indifference, without thinking of whether it may do good or bad, comply with the will of others.”
…My sweet Jesus would do nothing but dispose me to that Mystical Marriage which He had promised me. When I was in that state, He would make Himself seen sometimes three times a day, sometimes four, as He pleased; and sometimes it was a continuous coming and going. He seemed to be a sweetheart who cannot be without his spouse. This is how Jesus was with me, and sometimes he reached the point of telling me: “You see, I (Jesus) Love you (Luisa) so much that I (Jesus) cannot be without coming. I (Jesus) feel almost restless, thinking that you (Luisa) are there suffering for Me, and you (Luisa) are alone; this is why I (Jesus) have come – to see if you (Luisa) need something.” And while saying this, He Himself would lift my head, He would place His Arm around my neck and hug me; and while holding me like that, He would kiss me, and if it was summertime and it was hot, He would send a refreshing Breath from His Mouth, or He would take something in His Hand and fan me. And then He would ask me: “(Luisa,) How are you feeling? (Luisa,) Don’t you feel better?” I would say to Him: ‘Being with You (Jesus), in whatever way, one always feels well.’
…Now, during these exits that the Lord would make me do, sometimes He would renew the promise of the Marriage, which I already mentioned. Who can tell the ardent yearnings that the Lord infused in me for this Mystical Marriage to take place? Many times I would solicit Him, telling Him: ‘Most sweet Spouse (Jesus), hurry, no longer delay my intimate union with You. O please! let us bind each other with stronger bonds of Love, so that no one may ever again be able to separate us, even for simple instants.’ And Jesus would correct me now about one thing, now about another. I remember that one day He said to me: “Everything that is of the earth, everything – everything you (Luisa) must remove, not only from your heart, but also from your body. You (Luisa) cannot understand how harmful are the slightest earthly shadows, and how much they hinder Love.” Immediately I said to Him: ‘If I have something else that must be removed, tell me, for I am ready to do it.’ But as I was saying this, I myself realized that I had a gold ring on my finger, portraying the image of the Crucifix; and immediately I said to Him: (Jesus), ‘Holy Spouse, do you want me to take it off?’ And He told me: “Since I (Jesus) Myself will give you (Luisa) a more precious, more beautiful ring, which will have My Living Image impressed on it, and every time you (Luisa) will look at it your heart will receive New Arrows of Love – this one is not necessary.” And I promptly removed it.
V1 – The Mystical Marriage – 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, February 2nd. 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. Then He took a garment of Immense Beauty, whose background seemed to be a surface 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 bejewelled 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 which resounded among themselves, speaking in clear notes of the beauty, the power, the fortitude, and of all the other virtues of my spouse Jesus. Who can tell what I comprehended, and in what sea of consolation my soul was swimming? It is impossible to say it.
Now, while He was crowning my forehead, Jesus told me: “Most Sweet Spouse (Luisa), I (Jesus) place this Crown upon you (Luisa) so that nothing may be missing in order to make you (Luisa) worthy of being My Spouse; but then, after our wedding is finished, I (Jesus) will take it with Me to Heaven, to keep it for you (Luisa) 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 there was a great meaning in that veil, 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 confused and all full of blushing.
On the morning of the aforementioned day, February 2nd, Jesus made Himself seen again all affable, sweet and majestic, together with His Most Holy Mother (Mary) and Saint Catherine. First, the Angels sang a hymn, 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 (Mary) 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 (Mary) 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.
V1 – The Mystical Marriage Renewed in Heaven – I had spent about three years in this state already described, continuing to remain in bed, when one morning Jesus made me understand that He wanted to Renew the Marriage – not on earth, as the first time, but in Heaven, in the presence of the whole Celestial Court, and that I should remain prepared for a Grace so great. I did as much as I could in order to dispose myself, but since I am so miserable and insufficient in doing any shadow of good, the Hand of the Divine Maker was needed in order to dispose me, because, by myself, I would never have managed to purify my soul.
One morning – it was the Eve of the Nativity of Mary Most Holy, September 7th – my always benign Jesus Himself came to dispose me. He did nothing but come and go continuously. He would speak to me now about Faith, and then He would leave me, and I would feel a Life of Faith being infused in my soul. As rough as I felt it before, at the speaking of Jesus, I would feel my soul become very light, in such a way as to penetrate into God; and I would contemplate now His Power, now His Sanctity, now His Goodness, and so on. My soul would remain stupefied, and in a sea of stupefaction, I would say: ‘Powerful God, what power is not undone before You? Immense Sanctity of God, what other sanctity, as sublime as it might be, would dare to appear before You?’ Then I would feel myself descend into myself, and I could see my nothingness, the nonentity of earthly things, how everything is nothing before God. I would see myself as a little worm, all full of dust, climbing up in order to take a few steps; it would take nothing to destroy me but someone who would trample me under foot, and I would be undone. So, seeing myself so ugly, I almost would not dare to go to God, but His Goodness would make itself present before my mind, and I would feel drawn as though by a magnet, to go to Him. And I would say to myself: ‘If He is Holy, He is also Merciful; if He is Powerful, He also contains full and highest Goodness within Himself.’ It seemed to me that Goodness surrounded Him on the outside and inundated Him from within. So I would contemplate the Goodness of God. It seemed to me that it would surpass all the other Attributes, but then, looking at the others, I would see them all equal among themselves – Immense, Immeasurable and Incomprehensible to the human nature. While my soul would be in this state, Jesus would come back and speak about Hope.
…on that morning, in order to dispose my heart more, Jesus spoke about the annihilation of myself. He also spoke of the immense desire which I was to excite within me in order to dispose myself to receive that Grace. He told me that desire makes up for the lacks and imperfections that may be in the soul; it is like a mantle that covers everything. But this was not a simple speaking – it was an Infusion in me of that which He was saying.
While my soul was exciting itself with ardent yearnings for receiving the Grace that Jesus Himself wanted to give me, Jesus came back and Transported me outside of myself, up to Paradise. And there, in the Presence of the Most Holy Trinity and of all the Celestial Court, He renewed the Marriage. Jesus put out the ring adorned with three precious stones, white, red and green, and He gave it to the Father, who blessed it and gave it back to the Son again. The Holy Spirit took my right hand and Jesus placed the ring on my ring finger. Then I was admitted to the kiss of all the Three Divine Persons, and each of Them blessed me.
Who can tell my confusion when I found myself before the Most Holy Trinity? I will just say that as soon as I found myself in Their (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Presence, I fell flat to the ground, and I would have remained there if it wasn’t for Jesus, who encouraged me to go into Their (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Presence, so much was the Light, the Sanctity of God. I am only saying this; the other things I will leave out, because I remember them confusedly.
After this, I remember that a few days passed and I received Holy Communion. I lost consciousness, and I saw, present before me, the Most Holy Trinity whom I had seen in Heaven. I immediately prostrated myself at Their (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Presence, I adored Them (the Most Holy Trinity), I confessed my nothingness. I remember that I felt so plunged within myself that I did not dare to utter a single word, when a Voice came from Their (the Most Holy Trinity’s) midst and said: “Do not fear, pluck up courage, We (the Most Holy Trinity’s) have come to confirm you as Our (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Own, and to take possession of your heart.” While this Voice was saying this, I saw that the Most Holy Trinity descended into my heart and took possession of it – and there They (the Most Holy Trinity) formed Their (the Most Holy Trinity’s) dwelling. Who can tell the change that occurred in me? I felt Divinized; it was no longer I who lived, but They (the Most Holy Trinity) were Living in me. It seemed to me that my body was like a Residence, and that the Living God was Residing in it, because I could feel, sensibly, Their (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Real Presence in my interior. I could hear Their (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Voice clearly, coming from within my interior and resounding at the ears of my body. It happened precisely as when there are people speaking inside a room, and their voices can be heard, clearly and distinctly, also outside.
From that moment on, I no longer had the need to go in search of Him somewhere else in order to find Him, but I could find Him there – inside my heart. And when sometimes He would hide and I would go in search of Jesus, wandering around Heaven and earth, searching for my Highest and Only Good, while I would be in the heat of my tears, in the intensity of my yearnings, amid unutterable pains for having lost Him, Jesus would come out from within my interior and say to me: “I AM here with you, do not look for me elsewhere.” Between the surprise and the contentment at having found Him, I would say to Him: ‘My Jesus, how is it, for the entire morning You made me go around and around in order to find You, and You are here? You could at least tell me, so I would not have become so worked up. My sweet Good, my Dear Life, take a look at how tired I am, I feel I have no more strengths, I feel faint – O please! sustain me in Your Arms for I feel I am dying.’ And so Jesus would take me in His Arms and would make me rest; and while resting, I would feel my strengths being restored.
Other times, in this hiding of Jesus and my going around in search for Him, when He would make Himself felt inside of me and then come out from within me, I would find not Jesus alone, but all Three Divine Persons – now in the form of Three Children, Gracious and Immensely Beautiful, now with One single Body and Three distinct Heads, but resembling each other, all Three of Them attractive.
Who can tell my contentment? Especially when I would see the Three Children, whom I would hold, all Three of Them, in my arms. I would kiss now one, now another, and receive their kisses; now one would lean on my shoulder, another on the other shoulder, and another would remain in front of me. And while delighting in Them, I would go about looking at Them and, to my amazement, from Three I would find One.
Another amazement for me when I would be with these Three Children, was that each one would weigh as much as the Three of Them together. I would feel as much love for One of these Children, as for all Three of Them together; each one of Them attracted me in the same way.
In order to speak about these Marriages, I had to skip over a few things, for I was following the thread; and now I will tell them.
V1 – The Third Marriage – The Marriage of the Cross – Going back to the beginning, when Jesus would deign to come, He would speak to me very often about His Passion, and would take care in disposing my soul to the imitation of His Life and of His Pains, telling that, in addition to the Marriage which is mentioned above, we had one more left to do – and this was the Marriage of the Cross.
I remember that He would say: “My Spouse (Luisa), virtues become weak if they are not strengthened and fortified by the grafting of the Cross. Before My coming upon earth, pains, confusions, disgraces, calumnies, sufferings, poverty, illnesses, and especially the Cross, were considered dishonors; but from the moment they were borne by Me, they were all Sanctified and Divinized by My contact. They all changed their appearance, becoming sweet, pleasant, and the soul who has the Good of having some of them, receives Honor – and this, because she has received the Vestment of Me, Son of God. Only those who look and stop at the cortex of the Cross experience the contrary; finding it bitter, they are disgusted by it, they complain, as if someone had done wrong to them. But those who penetrate into it, finding it enjoyable, form their happiness in it. My beloved daughter (Luisa), I (Jesus) yearn for nothing else but to crucify you (Luisa), body and soul.”
And while He would say this, I would feel such infusion of yearnings for being crucified with Jesus Christ, that I would often repeat: ‘My Jesus, my Love, hurry – crucify me with You.’ And when He would come back, the first things I would ask of Him, which seemed to be the most important to me, were these: Sorrow for my sins, and the Grace to be crucified with Him. It seemed to me that if I obtained this, I would obtain everything.
Then, one morning, my most beloved Jesus made Himself present before me in the form of a Crucifix, and told me that He wanted to crucify me with Him. As He was saying this, I saw that Rays of Light were coming out from His Most Holy Wounds, and within those Rays, nails, which were coming toward me. At that moment, I don’t know why, though I desired so much to be crucified by Him as to feel consumed, I was caught by a great fear that made me tremble from head to foot. I felt such annihilation of myself, I saw myself so unworthy to receive that Grace, that I did not dare to say: ‘Lord, crucify me with You.’ Jesus seemed to be suspended, waiting for my will. Who can tell how ardently I desired Him within the intimate part of my soul, though, at the same time, I saw myself unworthy? My nature was frightened, and trembled.
But while I was in this state, my beloved Jesus, through the intellect, solicited me to accept. Then, with all my heart I said to Him: ‘Holy Spouse, give me suffering, give me crosses. From this alone will I know whether You love me – if You content me with crosses and with sufferings.’
And so those Rays of Light, together with the nails, pierced my hands and feet through, and my heart was pierced by a Ray of Light together with a lance. Who can tell the pain and the contentment? As much as my soul had been caught by fear before, so much did my soul swim in the Sea of Peace, of Contentment and of Pain afterwards. The pain I felt in my hands, in my feet and in my heart was so great, that I felt I was dying; I felt the bones of my hands and feet being shattered into most tiny pieces. I felt as if there were nails inside, but at the same time, they caused me such contentment that I cannot express it, and gave me such strength, that while I would feel like dying because of the pain, those very pains would sustain me so that I would not die. However, nothing appeared on the external parts of the body, though I felt corporal pains. This is so true, that when the confessor would come to call me to the obedience and would loosen my hands, which were contracted, every time he would touch me at that point of my hands which had been pierced through by that Ray of Light together with the nail, I would feel mortal pains. However, when the confessor would command, by Obedience, that those pains cease, they would mitigate very much. In fact, those pains were so strong that they made me lose consciousness, and if they had not mitigated at the call of Obedience, I would hardly have been able to obey. Oh! Prodigy of Holy Obedience – you have been everything for me. How many times I found myself clashing with death, so great was the intensity of the pains – and Obedience has almost restored my life. May the Lord be always blessed; may everything be for His Glory.
Now, while being inside myself, I could not see anything; but when I would lose consciousness, I could see the points marked by the Wounds of Jesus. It seemed to me that the very Wounds of Jesus had been transmuted in my hands, and in the rest; and this was the first time that Jesus crucified me. Indeed, there have been so many of these crucifixions that it is impossible to count them all. I will just say the main things about this.
Now, as Jesus would come back, I would say to Him: ‘Dear, my Beloved, give me sorrow for my sins, so that, consumed by sorrow and by regret for having offended You, my sins may be erased from my soul, and also from your memory. Yes, give me as much sorrow, for as much as I have dared to offend You. Even more, let sorrow surpass this, so that I may draw more intimately close to You.’
I remember that once, while I was saying this, my always benign Jesus told me: “Since you (Luisa) are so sorry for having offended Me, I (Jesus) myself want to dispose you (Luisa) to feel sorrow for your sins, so that you (Luisa) may see how awful sin is, and what bitter Pain My Heart suffered. Therefore, say together with Me: ‘If I cross the sea, You are in the sea, though I do not see You; I tread the earth, and You are under my feet. I sinned’.” And then, in a low voice, almost crying, Jesus added: “Yet I (Jesus) Loved you (Lusia), and at that very moment, I (Jesus) preserved you (Luisa).” While Jesus was saying this, and I together with Him, I was caught by such sorrow for the offenses given, that I fell flat to the ground; and Jesus disappeared.
Few are those words, but I understood so many things that it is impossible to say all that I comprehended. In the first words I comprehended the immensity, the greatness, the presence of God in each existing thing, such that not even a shadow of our thought can escape Him. I also understood my nothingness compared to a Majesty so Great and Holy. In the word “I sinned,” I understood the ugliness of sin, the malice, the daring I had had in offending Him. Now, while my soul was considering this, in hearing Jesus Christ say: “Yet I (Jesus) Loved you (Luisa), and at that very moment, I (Jesus) preserved you (Luisa),” my heart was taken by such sorrow, that I felt I was dying, because I could understand the Immense Love that the Lord had for me in the very act in which I tried to offend Him, and even to kill Him. Ah Lord, how good You have been with me, and I – always ungrateful, and still so bad!
I remember that it was an alternation; every time He would deign to come, I would ask Him now for sorrow of my sins, and now for the crucifixion – and also for other things. As for example, one morning, while I was in my usual sufferings, my dear Jesus transported me outside of myself and showed me a man who had been killed by shots from a revolver, and who was then breathing his last and going to hell. Oh! how much pain it was for Jesus the loss of this soul. If the whole world knew how much Jesus suffers for the loss of souls, they would use all possible means so as not to become lost eternally – I am not saying for themselves, but at least to spare our Lord that pain. Now, while I was in the midst of the bullets together with Jesus, Jesus drew His lips close to my ears, and told me: “My daughter (Luisa), do you want to offer yourself as victim for the salvation of this soul, and take upon yourself the pains which he deserves because of his very grave sins?” And I answered: ‘Lord, I am ready, as long as You save him and restore his life.’ Who can tell the sufferings that came to me? They were such and so many, that I myself I don’t know how life did not leave me.
V2 – 2/28/99 – I also understood that the words that the Lord says to His beloved souls – “I (Jesus) will espouse you in the Faith” – mean nothing less but that the Lord, in this Mystical Marriage, comes to endow the souls with His own Virtues. It seems to me that it happens as to two spouses: as they join their properties together, the belongings of one can no longer be distinguished from those of the other, but both of them become their owners. However, in our case, the soul is poor – all the Good comes from the Lord, who lets her share in His Possessions.
V7 – 7/27/06 – This morning, as my adorable Jesus made Himself seen embracing the Cross, I thought in my interior: ‘What were His thoughts in receiving the Cross?’ And He said to me: “My daughter (Luisa), when I (Jesus) received the Cross, I (Jesus) embraced It as My dearest Treasure, because in the Cross I (Jesus) dowered souls and espoused them to Myself. Now, upon looking at the Cross – at Its length and breadth – I (Jesus) rejoiced, because I (Jesus) saw in It sufficient dowries for all My spouses, and none of them could fear not being able to Marry Me, because I (Jesus) held in My own Hands – in the Cross – the price of their dowry. But with this condition alone: that if the soul accepts the little Gifts I (Jesus) send to her – which are the crosses – as the pledge of her acceptance of Me as her Spouse, the Marriage is formed and I (Jesus) give her the Gift of the dowry. If then she does not accept the Gifts – that is, if she is not resigned to My Will – everything is undone, and even if I (Jesus) want to dower her, I (Jesus) cannot, because in order to form a Marriage, it always takes the will of both sides; and since the soul does not accept My Gifts, it means that she does not want to accept the Marriage.”
V8 – 8/10/08 – “My daughter (Luisa), nothing has diminished the Goods that exist between Me and you (Luisa), because the whole of Good is in the origin of Its foundation. When two persons unite themselves with the bond of friendship or with the bond of Marriage, and they have exchanged gifts besides, and have loved each other so much as to become inseparable, to the extent that one has taken and copied the other so much as to feel the being of the beloved within herself – if out of bare necessity they are forced to be far away from each other, are those gifts perhaps diminished, or does their love decrease? Not at all. On the contrary, being far away makes them grow more in love, and makes them keep the gifts received with greater care, waiting for some greater unexpected gift at the return of the other. But there is more; since one has copied her beloved within herself, it seems that there is no distance for her, because she feels the voice of the beloved flow within her voice, having imitated him. She feels him flow in her mind, in her works, in her steps… So, he is far and near, she looks at him and he escapes her, she touches him but cannot clasp him; therefore, the soul is in a continuous martyrdom of love. Now, if Justice forces Me to deprive you (Luisa) of Me and to be far away for some time, can you (Luisa) say that I (Jesus) have taken the Gifts away from you (Luisa), and that there is diminution of Love?”
V13 – 12/5/21 – “It is right, it is necessary that I (Jesus) speak about you (Luisa). Would it be nice if a bridegroom who is about to Marry his bride, were forced to deal with others but not with her; while it is necessary that they confide their secrets to each other, that one know what the other has, that their parents provide this couple with a dowry, and that they become used to each other’s ways in advance?”
And I added: ‘Tell me, my Life, who is my family? What is my dowry and Yours?’ And smiling, He continued: “Your family is the Trinity. Don’t you (Luisa) remember that in the first years of bed I (Jesus) took you (Luisa) to Heaven and we celebrated our Union before the Most Holy Trinity? And the Trinity endowed you (Luisa) with such Gifts that you (Luisa) yourself have not yet known them; and as I (Jesus) speak to you (Luisa) about My Most Holy Divine Will, about Its Effects and Value, I (Jesus) make you (Luisa) discover the Gifts with which, from that time, you (Luisa) were Endowed. I (Jesus) do not speak to you (Luisa) about My Dowry, because what is Mine is yours. And then, after a few days, We, the Three Divine Persons, descended from Heaven, took Possession of your heart, and formed Our (The Most Holy Trinity’s) perpetual Dwelling in it. We (The Most Holy Trinity) took the reins of your intelligence, of your heart, and of all of you (Luisa); and everything you (Luisa) did was an outpouring of Our (The Most Holy Trinity’s) Creative Will over you (Luisa), and the confirmation that your human will was animated by an Eternal Divine Will.”
V18 – 11/5/25 – “…Lend Us (The Most Holy Trinity) the ear of your heart and listen to Our (The Most Holy Trinity’s) profound Moans in the Sacrament of Marriage. How many disorders in it! Marriage was elevated by Me to a Sacrament, in order to place in it a Sacred Bond, the symbol of the Sacrosanct Trinity, the Divine Love which It encloses. So, the love which was to reign in the father, mother and children, the concord, the peace, was to symbolize the Celestial Family. I (Jesus) was to have on earth as many other families similar to the Family of the Creator, destined to populate the earth like as many Terrestrial Angels, to then bring them back to populate the Celestial Regions. But, ah! how many Moans in seeing families of sin being formed in the Marriage, which symbolize hell, with discord, with lack of love, with hatred, and which populate the earth like many rebellious angels, who will serve to populate hell. The Holy Spirit moans with harrowing Moans in each Marriage, in seeing so many infernal dens being formed on earth. Therefore, place your Requital of Love in each Marriage, in each creature which comes to the light; in this way, your loving moan will render less sorrowful Our (The Most Holy Trinity’s) continuous Moans.”
V24 – 6/12/28 – After this, since it was the Feast of Corpus Domini, I was thinking to myself that this day was the feast of the Marriage which blessed Jesus did with souls in the Most Holy Sacrament of Love. And my beloved Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter (Luisa), the true Marriage with humanity was done in Creation. Nothing was lacking either to the soul or to the body; everything was done with Royal Sumptuousness. An Immense Palace was prepared for the human nature, such that no king or emperor can have one similar to it, which is the whole Universe: a Starry Heaven and its Vault, a sun which would never extinguish its Light; Flourishing Gardens in which the happy couple, God and man, was to stroll, amuse itself and maintain the continuous, uninterrupted Feast of our Marriage; and Garments, woven not with matter, but formed of Purest Light by Our (The Most Holy Trinity’s) Power, as befitted Royal persons.
Everything was Beauty in man, soul and body, because the One who prepared the Marriage and formed it was of Unreachable Beauty. So, from the External Sumptuousness of the so many enchanting Beauties present in the whole of Creation, you (Luisa) can imagine the interior Seas of Sanctity, of Beauty, of Light, of Science, etc., which the interior of man Possessed. All the acts of man, interior and external, were as many Musical Keys which formed the most Beautiful Melodies, Sweet, Melodious, Harmonious, that maintained the joy of the Marriage. And each additional act that he would dispose himself to do, was a New little Sonata that he would prepare, to call his Spouse to delight with him.
My Most Holy Divine Will that Dominated humanity, brought him the New continuous Act and the Likeness to the One who had created him and Married him. But in such a Great Feast man broke the strongest bond, in which lay the whole Validity of our Marriage and through which it had been in Force: he withdrew from Our Most Holy Divine Will. Because of this, the Marriage was broken, and since all the rights were lost, only the memory of it was left, but the substance, the Life, the effects no longer existed.
Now, the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist in which My Love overabounded in all possible imaginable ways, cannot be called either the First or the True Marriage of Creation, for I (Jesus) do nothing but continue what I (Jesus) did when I (Jesus) was on earth. According to the needs present in souls, with some I (Jesus) make Myself the compassionate Doctor in order to heal them, with some the Teacher to instruct them, with some the Father to forgive them, with some Light to give them sight. I (Jesus) give Strength to the weak, Courage to the timid, Peace to the restless – in sum, I (Jesus) continue My Redemptive Life and Virtue; however, all these miseries exclude the True Marriage.
No young man marries a young woman who is ill – at most, he waits for her to recover; or a young woman who is weak and who offends him very often. And if the groom is a king and loves her, at most he waits for the bride to get well, to love him, and for her condition to become somehow satisfactory, and not so inferior to his. Now, the condition in which poor humanity finds itself is still that of a poor ill one, and I (Jesus) am waiting for My Most Holy Divine Will to be Known and to Reign in the midst of creatures, for It will give them True Health, Royal Garments, and a Beauty worthy of Me. Then will I (Jesus) form again the True and original Marriage.”
V24 – 6/16/28 – I was thinking about what is written here above, and blessed Jesus continued, telling me: “My daughter, it is indeed true that the Supreme Being made Its Marriage with humanity at the beginning of Creation; and it happened as to a husband, when his wicked wife induces him to separate in court. But, in spite of this, an affection remains in his heart, and he thinks and yearns that, if his chosen one should change, ‘Who knows… I may once again be able to unite and bind myself with her with the bond of Marriage’; and therefore he often lets news reach her ear through messengers—that he loves her.
“So God did: even though the Marriage with humanity was unbound in the Divine Court, He (God) kept an affection and, though far away, He (God) longed for the New Bond of Marriage with humanity; so much so, that He (God) did not destroy the Palace that He (God) had formed with so much Sumptuousness and Magnificence, nor did He (God) take away from her (humanity) the good of the sun that formed the day, but He (God) left everything, so that the very one who had offended Him might make use of it. Even more, He (God) maintained the correspondence by choosing, from the very beginning of the world, now one of the good, now another, who were like messengers. And like many postmen, some brought the little letters, some the telegrams, some the phone calls from Heaven, in which it was announced that the far away Spouse (God) had not forgotten her, that He (God) Loved her, and that He (God) wanted the return of the ungrateful spouse.
“So, in the Old Testament, the more I (Jesus) multiplied the Good, the Patriarchs and the Prophets, the more pressing were the invitations and the mail that ran between Heaven and earth, through which God was sending News—that He (God) desired the New Union. This is so True that, unable to contain the ardor of His Love any longer, and since decayed humanity was not yet disposed at that time, He (God) made an exception, espousing the Virgin Mary Queen and the Humanity of the Word with bond of True Marriage, so that, by virtue of them, decayed humanity might be lifted up again and I (Jesus) might form the Marriage with the entire humanity. So, My Humanity formed the New Engagement with her on the Cross, and everything I (Jesus) did and suffered, up to dying on the Cross, were all preparations in order to carry out the desired Marriage in the Kingdom of My Most Holy Divine Will.
“Now, after the engagement, there are Pledges and Gifts left to be exchanged, and these are the Knowledges about My Divine Fiat. Through them, humanity is given back the great Gift that man rejected in Eden—the Eternal, Infinite and Interminable Gift of My Most Holy Divine Will. And this Gift will attract decayed humanity so much, that she will give Us (Triune God), in exchange, the gift of her poor will, that will be the confirmation and the seal of the union of the spouses, after such a long chain of correspondence, of faithfulness on the part of God, and of inconstancy, ingratitude and coldness on the part of creatures.
“So, My daughter (Luisa), man degraded himself and lost all Goods because he went out of My Most Holy Divine Will. In order to Ennoble himself, to Reacquire Everything and Receive the Rehabilitation of the Marriage with his Creator, he must enter once again the Divine Fiat from which he came. There are no ways in the middle; not even My very Redemption is sufficient to make man Return to the Beginning of the Happy Era of his Creation. Redemption is Means, Way, Light, Help—but not the end. The end is My Most Holy Divine Will, because My Most Holy Divine Will was the Beginning and, by Justice, one who is the beginning must also be the End. Therefore, humanity must be enclosed in My Divine Volition to be given back her Noble Origin, her Happiness, and to place the Marriage with her Creator in force once again.
“Therefore, the great Good that My Redemption did to man is not enough for Our Love, but it yearns for more. True Love never contents itself; only then is it content, when it can say: ‘I have nothing else to give him.’ And knowing that man can return to be Happy, Victorious, Glorious, in the Noble State in which he was created by God—and this, by means of My Most Holy Divine Will Reigning in their midst—this is why all the Divine Yearnings, the sighs, the manifestations, are directed toward making Our (The Triune God’s) Will Known in order to make It Reign, so as to be able to say to Our (The Triune God’s) Love: ‘Calm yourself, for Our (the Most Holy Trinity’s) beloved son has reached his Destiny. He is now in Possession of Our (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Inheritance that was given to him in Creation, which is Our (The Triune God’s) Fiat! And while he Possesses what is Ours (the Most Holy Trinity’s), We (The Triune God) Possess him. Therefore, the Marriage is Fulfilled once again, the spouses have Returned to their Place of Honor; there is nothing left but to Celebrate and Enjoy a Good so Great, after so long a sorrow.’”
V30 – 6/17/32 – “Blessed daughter (Luisa), My Acts and those of My Queen Mama (Mary), Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Love, Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Sanctity, are in Act of continuous waiting, to enclose your acts (Luisa) in-between Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Own, so as to give them the shape of Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Acts and place the Seal of Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Own upon your acts (Luisa). In fact, you (Luisa) must know that the Acts of the Sovereign of Heaven are braided with My Acts, therefore they are inseparable, and one (Luisa) who Lives in Our Divine Volition comes to Operate in the middle of Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Braiding, and her acts remain enclosed in-between Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Acts, which keep them in custody as Triumph and Works of the Holy Fiat.
“Nothing enters into Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Acts if it is not a Birth from It. See, then, where the Sanctity of one (Luisa) who Lives in Our Will is formed—in the middle of Our Sanctity; she loves in the center of Our Love, and operates in the midst of Our Works. So, one (Luisa) who operates in Our Volition will feel, as though in her nature, the inseparability—she from Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Acts, and We (Jesus and Mary) form her own, just as the light is inseparable from the heat, and the heat from the light. And therefore they are Our (Jesus and Mary’s) continuous Triumph, Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Glory, Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Victory over the human will; they are Our (Jesus and Mary’s) Divine Properties, that We (Jesus and Mary) form in her (Luisa), and she (Luisa) forms in Us. The human volition and the Divine Volition kiss each other continuously, they Fuse together; and God carries out His Life in the creature (Luisa), and she (Luisa) carries out her life in God.
“Furthermore, for the creature (Luisa) who Lives in My Most Holy Divine Will, there is nothing that belongs to My Fiat over which she (Luisa) does not acquire her Rights: Right over Our Divine Being, Right over her Celestial Mama, over the Angels, over the Saints; Right over the Heaven, over the sun, over the whole Creation. And God, the Virgin, and everyone, acquire the Right over her(Luisa).
“It happens as when two young spouses unite themselves together with an indissoluble bond, such that, on both sides, they acquire the right over their very persons, and over everything that belongs to both—a right that no one can take away from them. The same for one (Luisa) who Lives in Our Volition: she (Luisa) forms the New, True, Real Marriage with the Supreme Being, and, with it, a Nuptial is formed with everything that belongs to Him. O! how beautiful it is to see this creature (Luisa) Espoused to all—the dear, the favorite, the beloved of all. And, with right, everyone wants her(Luisa), they yearn to enjoy her (Luisa) and to keep her together with them; and she (Luisa) Loves all, gives to all the right over her, and gives herself to all—it is the New and Extensive Family of her Creator that she (Luisa) has acquired.
“O! if it could be seen from the earth, they would see that God carries her (Luisa) in His Arms, the Sovereign Queen(Mary) Nourishes her (Luisa) with the choice Food of the Divine Volition, the Angels and Saints form the cortege around her (Luisa), the Heaven extends over her (Luisa) to cover her (Luisa) and protect her (Luisa)—and woe to those who touch her. The sun fixes on her (Luisa) with its light and kisses her (Luisa) with its heat, the wind caresses her; there is not one thing Created by Us which does not offer itself to perform its office around her. My Most Holy Divine Will moves everything around her (Luisa), so that everyone and everything may serve her (Luisa) and love her (Luisa). Therefore, one (Luisa) who Lives in It gives everyone something to do, and all feel the Happiness of being able to extend their field of action inside and outside the fortunate creature (Luisa). O! if all creatures would comprehend what it means to Live in My Most Holy Divine Will—O! how all would aspire and compete, to make in It their Celestial Dwelling.”
Then, I was feeling, more than ever, all abandoned in the Immensity of the Light of the Divine Volition, and I could see and feel my sweet Jesus inside, all Attention over the littleness of my poor soul. He would take care of everything, He wanted to give me everything, do everything, in such a way that it appeared how, with the touch of His Fingers, He formed my heartbeat, animated the breath, the motion, and kept the thoughts, the words and everything in Order; but with such Love and Tenderness as to be enrapturing.
And blessed Jesus, seeing me surprised, told me: “My little daughter (Luisa), do not be surprised at My many attentions and Loving Tendernesses that I (Jesus) do inside and outside of you (Luisa). You (Luisa) must know that in the soul (Luisa) in whom My Divine Will Reigns I (Jesus) serve Myself; therefore, for the decorum of My Divinity and Sanctity, I (Jesus) lend My own Acts, as if they were for My Own Life; and so I (Jesus) place the Intensity of My Love, the Order of My Thoughts, the Sanctity of My Works. And in seeing the docility of the creature (Luisa) offering herself like a daughter to receive the Offices of her Father, His Loving Tendernesses, the Life of the Father in his daughter (Luisa)—O! how Happy and honored I (Jesus) feel to serve her (Luisa). More so, since I (Jesus) serve Myself in My daughter (Luisa), and when one serves oneself it is not servitude, but it is Honor, Glory; it is to know how to preserve oneself in the Dignity, in the Sanctity, in the order of one’s own state, without descending down below. Servitude begins when one serves other people; but to serve oneself is to maintain the height of one’s state. Besides, there where My Divine Will Reigns it is My interest that everything the creature (Luisa) does be acts worthy of It, and that they be a Birth from My own Acts. Otherwise, it would be unseemly to My Most Holy Divine Will as well as to the human acts; therefore I (Jesus) offer Myself to do everything, so as to serve My own Will.”
In addition to this, while I (Luisa) continued my abandonment in the Arms of Jesus, He added: “Blessed daughter (Luisa), My Humanity so Loved the human family, that I (Jesus) carried it, and My Humanity still carries it, inside My Sacred Heart and clasped in My Arms; and each Pain, Work, Prayer that I (Jesus) did were New Bonds of Union between Me and them. So, the whole of My Being and everything I (Jesus) did ran and ran like a mighty torrent toward each creature; and melting into Love It constituted Itself Bond of Union, of Love, of Sanctity, of Defense, that, forming arcane voices of Penetrating, Passionate, Delirious Love, said to each one of them: ‘I (Jesus) Love you, My children—I (Jesus) Love you very much; and I (Jesus) want to be Loved.’
“My Humanity reordered and established the True Union between Creator and creature, and bound them all among themselves, like members united to the head; and I (Jesus) Myself constituted Myself Head of the whole human family. Therefore, Virtue possesses, of Its own, the binding force to bind oneself to God; not only this, but to bind oneself to the creatures, in such a way that for one who exercises patience, her patience is bound, then, to all those who have patience, and disposes others to have patience. In the same way, those who are obedient, humble, charitable, form the different categories in My Church. What to tell you, then, of the most extensive Bonds that one (Luisa) who does and Lives in My Divine Will forms! Since she (Luisa) is present both in Heaven and on earth, she (Luisa) establishes her Bonds everywhere; with her acts she (Luisa) binds Heaven and earth, and calls everyone to Live of Divine Will.”
V36 – 5/17/38 – After this, my Jesus continued: “My daughter (Luisa), every day the sun gives light, heat, sweetness, fragrances, color, fecundity and different flavors, and with this, it embellishes the earth. By just touching with its light and molding with its heat, it fecundates the plants and the whole of nature. It sweetens the fruits and gives a variety of colors and fragrances to flowers, forming a sweet enchantment for human generations. The same thing happens with My Most Holy Divine Will that, Immensely Exceeding the sowing of the sun, sows Light, Love, varieties of Beauty and Sanctity in the one (Luisa) who Lives in It. It gives to each seed a Divine Fecundity. O, how Beautiful it is to see this Embellished creature, Fecundated by Our Divine Sowing. How special she (Luisa) is, forming the Enchantment of Our Divine Pupils. Now, My daughter (Luisa), in order to receive the sowing of the sun, the earth, the flowers and the plants must let themselves be touched by its light and heat, otherwise the sun would remain at the height of its sphere, not being able to sow in the earth. The earth would remain sterile, without fecundity and beauty, since union and agreement from both sides are needed to give and receive any good. Without these, one cannot give and the other cannot receive. In the same way, in order for the soul to receive the sowing of My Most Holy Divine Will, she (the soul linked to Luisa) has to Live in It, being always united with perfect agreement. She must let herself be molded in order to receive a New Fecund Life. Otherwise, as with the sun, My Divine Will doesn’t sow and the creature remains sterile—without Beauty—in the darkness of her human will. This is why I (Jesus) want the creature to Live in My Most Holy Divine Will. Furthermore, I (Jesus) Myself become the Farmer in charge of the sowing. I (Jesus) make sure it doesn’t get wasted, in order to produce the most various Beauties.”
Then He added with more Loving Tenderness: “My good daughter (Luisa), My Love wants to be tied more and more to the creature (Luisa), and the more Truths It Manifests regarding My Most Holy Divine Will, the more bonds I (Jesus) put between God and herself. In Manifesting the Truth, My Love is preparing the Marriage between God and the soul. The more It (Love) Manifests the more Pomp and Magnificence this Marriage will have. Would you like to know what happens then? My Truths will be like the dowry needed in order to Marry God; to get to know the One (God) who lowers Himself and even ties Himself—only for Love—in the bond of Marriage. My Truths touch the creature (Luisa) over and over; They mold her (Luisa) to New Life; They return her (Luisa) to the Beauty of Our (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Image and Resemblance from the time she (Luisa) was Created, and impress on her (Luisa) Their Kiss of inseparable Union.
“Just one of Our (The Triune God’s) Truths can make a Sea of Prodigies and Divine Creations in the soul (Luisa) who has the goodness to listen to It. One Truth can turn a perverted world into a Good and Holy one, because It is one of Our (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Lives, exposed for the Good of all. It is a New Sun that We (The Triune God) raise in created intellects; a Sun that will let Itself be known through Its Light and Heat, turning into Light and Heat whoever wants to listen. Therefore, hiding a Truth that We (the Most Holy Trinity) give from Our Paternal Womb, with so much Love, is the greatest crime. It deprives human generations of the Greatest Good.
“Further, one (Luisa) who Lives in Our (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Will, by Marring Us (the Most Holy Trinity), makes a Feast for all Saints. All of them participate in this Divine Wedding and, because of It, they have their own party in Heaven and another one on earth. Each act the creature (Luisa) does in Our (the Most Holy Trinity’s) Will is a Feast; a table sumptuously decked for the Heavenly Regions. In return, the Saints give New Gifts. They beseech the Lord to Manifest more Truths to the soul (Luisa), to broaden more and more the boundaries of the dowry that God gave to her (Luisa).”
