20.  To Federico Abresch from Bologna

In Voluntate Dei! – Fiat

Most esteemed one in the Lord,

You cannot imagine the contentment I feel when I hear that one wants to live in the Divine Will, because it is a victory of Jesus; and as He conquers our will, we conquer His Own.  In the Kingdom of the Divine Will no one loses, we are all winners, both God and the creature.

I am surprised by your doubts.  How is it?  Don’t you know that Redemption is preparation for the Kingdom of the Divine Will?  And the Sacred Heart of Jesus is nothing other than the immense Reign of His Will.  It is not the Heart that dominates; it is the Divine Will that dominates His Divine Heart.  Poor Heart, if it did not have a Will to dominate it, it would be good at nothing.  If the will is good, the heart is good; if the will is holy, the heart is holy.  If our will gives place to the Divine, letting It raise Its throne in our will, the heart acquires the divine qualities by grace.  Therefore, both in the Divine and in the human order, it is always the will that has the first place, the prime act, its rule.  The heart and all the rest are in the secondary order… Therefore, to say that the Heart reigns, if the Divine Will does not reign, is absurd.  They can be called devotions, pious practices…; if the Divine Will does not reign, the Kingdom does not exist.  It exists in Heaven, but has no place on earth.  However, the HolyChurch, organ and messenger of the Supreme Fiat, through the Sacred Heart, through the Celestial Mama, beseeches the Kingdom of the Divine Will.  She does not say it with words, but says it with facts.  The Divine Volition is the King – His Heart, His wounds, His precious Blood, the sweet Queen, form the ministers that surround the King, and through them beseech the Kingdom of the Divine Will in souls.

Now, how can one know It?  All the necessary things, the different circumstances in which we may find ourselves, are Will of God for us.  If we are really determined to live in It, God is so pleased that, if miracles are needed, He will make them in order not to let us use our will.  It is up to us to truly decide, and be willing to give even our life in order to live in It; and dear Jesus and the Sovereign Queen will take on the commitment, will be our sentries, and will surround us with such graces as to not let us be betrayed by our own wills.  More so, since our Lord does not teach difficult things, nor does He impose them or want them, but He facilitates all that He wants from us in an admirable way; even more, He puts Himself in our place to make it easy for us, and does together with us all that He wants us to do.

I commend myself to your prayers and also to my good daughter Amelia.  Make yourselves saints.  May the Divine Volition stretch out Its arms to you, to raise you in Its womb.  Look at all things as bearers of It, to give you Its life, Its sanctity… The little one – raise him holy, as a gift of the Fiat; who knows whether your desires to see him religious and holy may not be fulfilled.  So I leave you all in the Divine Volition; let me always find you in It.  And with a thousand regards to the father, to the mother and to the son, I say,

most affectionately yours,

the little daughter of the Divine Will

Fiat! – In Voluntate Dei!

Dearest son in the Divine Volition,

The only consolation for a mother, in having her children away from her, is that they want to live in the Divine Will – if I think how much dear Jesus longs for it, and that the nail which transfixes Him the most is that His children do not live in His Will.  And the Celestial Queen – what would she not do if she saw us living together with Them, with one Will?  They would certainly put their lives at our disposition.  And living in the Divine Will is exactly this.  God Himself faces up all our things and puts His Sanctity, His Love, all His Being at our disposition, as long as He receives the contentment of seeing us live in that Volition which is the bearer of all His goods.

Dearest one in the Divine Volition, to live in It is not about changing actions, but only the will:  instead of making our will flow in all that we do, we let flow That of God.  And do you want to know what happens in our act?  His Love, His Goodness, is so great that as we form our act and let His Will flow in it, the Divine Life forms in our act; and this Life of God is repeated in our acts as many times for as many acts as we do.  Do you think it’s trivial that, as long as I let His Will flow, He gives me the power to form as many Divine Lives for as many acts as I do?  They might be even natural or tiny acts; as long as His Will is there, the great prodigy is performed.

As far as weaknesses, miseries and the like, don’t worry, as long as our will is not there, since that is our ruin.  They can serve as footstool on which the Divine Volition forms Its throne in order to dominate us and reign; or serve as the crushed stone and rubble serve one who wants to build himself a house, or as ground in the hands of our Celestial Farmer, Who makes of our miseries without our will the most beautiful bloomings in order to extend His Kingdom.  Everything serves His glory and our good, in the divine hands of the Fiat.  However, I recommend that you do not think of miseries and weaknesses.  The more one thinks about them, the more he feels them.  On the other hand, if one does not think about them, they disappear, and he feels them less; more so, since sweet Jesus does not look at what we feel, but at what we want.  Even more, many times He feels compassion for us and increases His Grace and His strength in order to make miseries stay at their place.  Besides, in wanting that we live in His Will, dear Jesus does not want to deal with the dead, but with the living.  Our miseries say that we are alive, not dead, and wanting to be the Winner, He conquers them and makes of them the most beautiful ornament for His Kingdom.

Therefore, courage and trust; these are the weapons which conquer God.  If we don’t take the first steps, we cannot that second, the third ones, and so forth… If we do not enter the sea, we cannot get wet, nor swim in it.  Therefore, the essential thing is to really begin; the rest will come by itself.

I commend myself to your prayers.  Tell little Pio that in everything he does he should say:  “Jesus, take my will and give me Yours.”  Raise him holy, that he may be a true son of the Divine Will.  I leave the whole family in the Divine Volition.  Try as much as you can to make the Divine Will known to everyone; in this way you will obtain the grace to know It more yourselves.  I send to all the greeting of the Fiat.

The little daughter of the Divine Will

65.  To Federico Abresh

In Voluntate Dei!

My dearest son in the Divine Will,

Forgive my delay.  I let you know that I am always in the Divine Volition, in which I want – and so does Jesus – to find all my children, near and far – that is, the ones who want to live in the Holy Will.  May Heaven save us from a misfortune so great – of going out of It.

Dearest son, you must know that this is a task which God gave us in Creation.  The origin of our existence was formed in the center of the Supreme Fiat.  God created our human will as His divine room, as a secret office, in which He was to live together with us, and have His pulpit in order to teach us the celestial doctrine of His Will.  Therefore, no law can impose us not to live in It; neither the Holy Church, as much as we bow and adore Her dispositions, nor God Himself can say to us:  “I do not want you to live in my Will”, because He Himself, with highest Wisdom, gave us the right by creation.  By living in It, we must be the dwelling of God, the bearers of our Creator; the ones in whom, in order to pour out His delirium of love, He was to become the narrator of His Divine Being within the secret room of our human will.  And therefore He wants us to know how much He loves us, and that He wants us to live in His Will with that same love with which children and Father live…

Oh, how embittered He becomes if we do not live with Him; if He does not hold us tightly on His paternal knees; if He does not give us, continuously, His gifts, His life, His sanctity.  He does not like dissimilarities – He wants us similar to Him.  And in order to do this, listen to His device:  He gives love in every thing we do, and wants us to give Him our will as a gift in order to give us His own.  In this exchange, He makes the Life of the Divine Will grow within us, in such a way that, as we give our will, His Will grows, and every time we give ours, He delights in working His divine marvel in us.

Therefore, dearest one in the Divine Will, let us be attentive, let us remain in our place; let us not bother about the thunders and the storms, although they have embittered me down to the marrow of my bones.  I hope that they will change into a serene Heaven and into thunders of light and of love for the entire world, and for the triumph of a Kingdom so holy… We can say that we are burning on the stake of the sufferings on which they put us, but I hope that this stake will serve to burn the prison of my body; so I will be able to take flight for Heaven, in order to obtain the Kingdom of the Divine Will upon earth.

I thank very much for the hospitality you offered me; in exchange, I pray to Jesus that He would give you His perennial hospitality in the Divine Fiat.  Pray for me, for I need it very much.  Leaving you enclosed in the Holy Volition, united with good Amelia and my little Piuccio, I say,

most affectionately yours,

the little daughter of the Divine Will.

In Voluntate Dei – Fiat!

Most esteemed son in the Divine Volition,

Thank you for everything; may good Jesus reward you by dissolving you completely in the Divine Will, and by keeping your will as a footstool under His divine feet.  How happy you will feel, because by living together with the Divine Will, what is of Jesus and of the Queen Mama, is ours; ours His sanctity, His life, and the immense seas of His riches.  Jesus and the Queen feel happy, for They are not alone in their happiness and in the goods they possess, but have the children of the Fiat, who are also their children, to keep them company and live with them.  And what is more is that, if we lack something, They take to heart our sanctity; They compensate for us in everything; They give us their love and everything They have done as our courting and dowry, so that we may live with Them.  Therefore, by living in the Divine Will, everything is ours, and we can give everything to God.  Even more, every act of Will of God that we do, creates His Life in us, and we form the long generation of God in our acts.

Therefore, the thing that facilitates the most to live in the Divine Will, is to do whatever we can, and because God wants it; a Fiat is impressed in our act, and the Divine Life is formed.  By not living in the Divine Will, we prevent the divine generation in our acts, because He does not find in us the adaptable material in order to form His Life – that is, He does not find His sanctity, His virtues, to be able to generate.  How many Divine Lives repressed and not come to light, because the life of His Will is missing in the souls!  What pain, what unspeakable bitterness!  So, let us pray that the living in the Divine Will be known.

I also thank you for all that Sister Maria Deo Grazias tells me; she relieved me from the many bitternesses which inundate my heart.  If you manage to know something else, I would be happy to know it; after all, Fiat, Fiat!

Now, I let you know that I receive Holy Communion every day, and Holy Mass once a week, while, before, even when I went out of the convent, It was celebrated every day.  Since after six months from the prohibition of the books our Bishop died, the fathers who made the books be prohibited could obtain from the Holy Office, after the death of the Bishop, also the prohibition of Holy Mass.  But the Divine Will, in which I find everything, and even the Holy Mass – no one can take It away from me.

Dearest one in the Divine Volition, I don’t know how to thank you for your desire to help me like a son, if I were in need of the necessary things.  Thank you, thank you!  Even more, I want to tell you a secret which has been promised by the Divine Fiat:  It will take to heart the destiny of all those who will live from It, and will provide them with everything they need, for both the soul and the body.  It will make them lack nothing, and if necessary, even with miraculous means.  We will find ourselves in the conditions of Creation, in which one created thing has no need of the other, but all are rich in themselves.  However, they remain in highest accord and never move from their place.  Our place is the Divine Will.  If we live in It, It will keep us at Its table and nothing will be lacking to us.  How good is the Lord!  Let us thank Him from the heart.

Moreover, I let you know that dear Jesus is displeased for no one takes interest in a cause so holy.  Therefore, if you can do something, move or push someone – do it, for you will please Jesus.  And if you could interest yourself to let me have back the Holy Mass, how grateful would I be!  I had it for forty years, and without knowing reason, they took it away from me.  Fiat, Fiat!

I commend myself to your prayers, and leaving you in the sea of the Divine Volition, I send the greeting of the Fiat to you, to good Amelia, to little Piuccio and to the little group; and I say,

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

In Voluntate Dei

Most esteemed son in the Divine Volition,

I thank you in the Divine Will for all your attentions and for the comforting things that you send me.

You must know that no even humility exists in the Divine Will, but pure nothingness, which knows clearly that anything good which can be done is the All operating in the nothing.  So the poor nothing is in the act of being continuously born; it is the All that grows and forms Its life in the nothing.  Oh power of the Divine Will – as soon as the soul decides and wants to live in It, the Most Holy Trinity takes Its prime operating place in her.  And since this is an Act of Divine Will, all want their place of honor in that Act:  the Queen of Heaven, the Angels, the Saints, and all created things.  So, with one single Act of Divine Will, we enclose everything, we embrace everything, and we give everything to God, even all that the Eternal Word did upon earth.  The goods which descend for the benefit of all are incalculable.

Dearest son, I learned with sorrow of the withdrawal of Fr. Bruno; after all, Fiat, Fiat!  It shows that the devil is consumed with rage in order not to make the Divine Will known… It is not necessary that I send you the obedience, for I would send you a thousand of them; but it is absolute Will of God that we interest ourselves in making It known, even at the cost of our own lives.  And this, instead of being presumption, as you say, would be the most sacrosanct duty; and whoever does it will be kept by Jesus as the favorite of His Heart, and will receive primacy in His Kingdom.

As far as the writings, there is nothing to fear that they might be destroyed.  Jesus keeps them in custody, and woe to whoever would dare to touch them; because these are His writings, not mine, and He will well defend what belongs to Him.

As far as your Piuccio, I consider him as the son of a miracle; how would you not think that the Lord will not use him to do great things in him?  Therefore, raise him holy and all in the Will of God, and the Lord will do the rest.  Pray for me; and leaving you in the Divine Volition, to form your life, all soaked in It, from the heart I greet father, mother and son,

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

In Voluntate Dei – Fiat!

Most esteemed one in the Divine Volition,

I received your dear letter from Bologna, and since I was unable to answer you soon, I was not sure on where to write you – whether to Bologna or to San Giovanni (Rotondo); this is why I did not write you.  If the Divine Will wants it, you can come whenever you’d like; because it is the Divine Will that must have Its prime place in all our acts.  If we do so, It will carry us on Its lap and will do together with us whatever we do:  we will love with Its Love; we will pray together with It; Its steps will be ours…

Oh, how happy It will be to live Its Divine Life with the creature who knows It, because only knowledge gives us the highest good of possessing It.  It makes Its goods our own, and – oh, how happy It is to let us live with Its own Will and to see us possessing Its own goods!  In this Holy Divine Will, It sees the seas of Its Love no longer desert, but populated by Its children.  Therefore, let us hold dear taking refuge in the Divine Will as our life.

Dearest son in the Divine Volition, since you are near holy Padre Pio, talk to him about our things, that he may talk about them with the Lord; and if the Lord wants, let him tell you something.  Entrust me to his prayers, for I need it very much.  Kiss his hands for me.

I commend myself to your prayers, and leaving you in the Divine Volition, that you may live more in Heaven than on earth, from the heart I greet father, mother and son.

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

Fiat – In Voluntate Dei

Most esteemed one in the Divine Volition,

May Heaven reward you for all your attentions.  It seems that also Jesus says to you:  “Thank you, my son.”  I am happy with what you have done, and with the way you have done it.  A thought tells me:  “But will the Holy Father take the trouble to read it?  And then… to whom to ask whether he will concede the grace?”  I think that everything will remain up in the air.  Couldn’t this friend of yours appeal to someone who would be able to approach the Holy Father to remind him, in order to obtain concession of grace?  After all, may the Divine Will be always done, which should interest us more than anything, because It is Divine Life.

As we call the Divine Will in our acts, we form the generation of the Divine Life in our acts, and – oh, how happy is Jesus, in seeing His Life being generated in the acts of the creature.  And we are enriched, inside and out, with as many Divine Lives for as many acts as we have done in His Will.

As we desire to do His Will, the Most Holy Trinity gives us His Love, covers us with His Beauty, gives us His Goodness, that we may feel the divine order; in a word, He gives us the necessary raw material in order to form His Life.  And so in these lives He feels His own Love loving Him; He feels as though receiving Himself from the creature.  This is exactly the purpose of God:  that we live in His Will in order to form His generation in the creature.  In fact, all things created by God possess the good of generating:  man generates another man, the bird another bird, and so forth.  Should only the Divine Will not have this good?  So, let us take to heart living only of Divine Will.

I leave you in the Divine Volition, and greeting you all with that love with which Jesus loves us, I say,

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

99.  To Federico Abresch

Most esteemed son on the Divine Volition,

Let us thank for everything the Lord, Who, in His great goodness, wanted to use this little one, the poorest of all creatures, to manifest the sublime living in the Divine Will.  He is used to manifesting Himself to the little ones, to the most ignorant, so that we may attribute nothing to ourselves, but everything to His infinite Love for us, miserable creatures.  But who can say all He has said about a living so holy?  Only little drops can be put out.  It is enough to say that every time we do an act in His Holy Will, we go to meet the whole of Heaven, and all Heaven comes to meet us; all the Saints, all the Angels, and the very Queen of Heaven feel honored to place their acts together with ours, to do whatever we do.  They feel their happiness and glory redoubled, because a Divine Will is the actor and spectator of our act, and no one wants to put himself aside – and with right, because the Divine Will belongs to all, except for those who, ungrateful, do not want to know It, Love It and possess It.  Therefore, the whole Heaven repeats in chorus:  “If It is ours, why should we not do what It does?…”  More so, since every time we do an act in the Divine Will, the human will goes through a martyrdom – not of blood, but of will, which never dies.  And the Lord is so pleased that He places on it the seal of a divine martyrdom.  So we can say to God:  “I am your continuous martyr.  I die not just once, but so many times for as many times I don’t do my will…”  Enough for now; let us move to something else.

Dearest one in the Lord, nothing new happened here, as far as what you say about Rome.  On the contrary, there has been a terrible storm against the books and against me.  However, I think it was caused by some priests and religious from Corato.  May the Lord bless and forgive all.  It must be a diabolical rage, since, just in hearing the name of Will of God, he is consumed and becomes furious.  So, let us pray.  I thank you; do whatever you can do, and whatever the Lord wants.

I leave you in the Divine Volition; may It be the center of your life.  Oh, how I wish that everything you do would flow in It, to bring Him your kisses, your love, the embraces of your gratitude; to storm Heaven and say to Him:  “Hurry up, let your Will come and reign upon the earth.”

I greet you with the love of the Divine Fiat, together with Amelia and little Pio.

Affectionately yours,

                                                                                      The little daughter of the Divine Will.

                                                                                      Corato, June 23, 1941

 101.  To Federico Abresch (?)

Dearest son in Jesus Christ,

Thank you for everything.  Let us hope that the Lord will enlighten the Holy Pontiff.  If you can take other steps, do it; otherwise, we will always say, “Fiat, Fiat!”  However, while we wait, let us live always in the Divine Will.  The Divine Will is on the lookout – one could say – to see whether even our breath, heartbeat and motion are in His Holy Volition.  And if It sees them running, It makes feast, and feels Itself being loved, glorified and adored by all, in our breathing, heartbeat and motion.  In one single breath, we give It everything and everyone.  Its Most Holy Will circulates in all and gives life to all, and our little motion runs together with It and gives It all that creatures owe It.  It is enough to say that one single act done in the Divine Will storms Heaven; we make the seas of love of the Queen of Heaven and of the very Divinity our own, and we give them back to God as seas of love which belong to us.

We, poor creatures, are nothing; and so He calls us; He wants us in His Will, to receive everything, even Himself, from His beloved creature.  Everything else is nothing – it is just little drops.  So, if we want to love very much, let us live in His Holy Will, and – oh, how many surprises we will find!  First of all, the Divine Will operating in us, which will form seas of love, of light, of sanctity and of surprising graces; and we will be involved in such a way as to be unable to leave.

I leave you in the Divine Volition to become a great saint, and greeting you cordially, I say,

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

In Voluntate Dei

Most esteemed son in the Divine Volition,

Here I am to you, to tell you to always hide in the Divine Fiat:  we will be safe in It; all evils will flee from us; we will secure sanctity.  In each one of our acts, even natural – because our nature was given us by God – we will be invested with new beauty, with new love, with new divine strength.  If we live in the Divine Volition, even our breath, our steps, our motion, run within the breathing, in the steps and in the motion of all, to give back to God love for each breath, prayer for each step, glory for every motion.  The Divine Will is everywhere and we, by living in It, find ourselves in Heaven and on earth to love Him with all, in all, and in every place.

The Saints, the Queen of Heaven and God Himself anxiously await the “I love You” of one who lives in His Will, because it is a new gain that they make.  The “I love You” of the earth resounds in Heaven, in each Blessed, in the seas of the Celestial Mama, and says to all:  “I love You, I love You…” One can say that Heaven and earth exchange the kiss of love and celebrate together.  Therefore, may we take to heart living always in the Divine Will; in It we will form seas of love, seas of adoration, seas of glory, to give to our Creator…

I leave you in the Divine Volition, together with little Piuccio and Amelia.  Make yourselves saints, but saints of Divine Will.  It will carry you in Its womb; It will hold you tightly to Its breast; It will feed you with Its breath; It will make you feel Its Life palpitating in you… How happy you will be!

With all my heart I send you my regards together with the Fiat,

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

In Voluntate Dei!

Most esteemed and dear son in the Divine Volition,

I delight and rejoice in hearing that you interest yourself in the Divine Fiat, and together with me, Jesus rejoices and delights.  I say to you, “Thank you form the heart” together with my dear Jesus.  Whatever you can do, do it; the rest will be done by Jesus, who so much wants, loves and yearns that His Will be known and possessed by the creature as her own life.  In fact, only the Divine Will is the origin of our life, the means and the end of our existence, and will make us storm Heaven.  Without It, we are turned upside down; we lose the right to our terrestrial and celestial goods; we lose the bond with the Divine Family.  On the other hand, if we live of Divine Will, everything is ours; even God Himself is ours… If we love, our little love runs through all hearts, and even in future hearts, and loves God for all.  It runs through the Angels, into the seas of love of the Queen of Heaven, in the divine seas of God, and loves – everywhere, in everything and in every place.  The creature who loves in the Divine Will is not content if she does not find her place in all, to love the One Who so much loves her.

To love in the Divine Will astonishes Heaven and earth; the very Saints year to have within their hearts this conquering Love of one who lives in exile.  So, if we pray, if we adore, and even if we sigh in this Will so holy, we become life of all, and we give God all that everyone should give Him.

Therefore, the prodigies of living in the Divine Will are inexhaustible, and maybe we will get to know them in Heaven.  This is the reason for which the infernal enemy has closed all doors, using ecclesiastical people.  But the time will come when Jesus will triumph over all, and His kingdom on earth will certainly come, because it is a decree of God, and He does not easily change His decrees because of the wickedness of men.  However, blessed are those who interest themselves in His Will, because the Lord will use them to open the ways which had been closed, and will use their acts as many keys in order to open Heaven and to make It descend and reign upon earth.  Therefore, dearest son, let us be attentive; let us never move from the Supreme Fiat.

As far as the round (…)

I leave you in the Divine Volition to make yourself a great saint.  Pray for me; I send you my regards from the heart in the Divine Will.

                                                                                      The little daughter of the Divine Will.

 110.  To Federico Abresch

In Voluntate Dei!

Dearest son in the Divine Volition,

(…) what you say seems good to me, and also the Lord is pleased, because those who today love to live in the Divine Will and to know It, form the seed, the conception, and maybe even the birth of this Divine Volition within their souls, also to make It be conceived in other creatures.  So, if It does not expand, how can It be born in others?

You must know that the sanctity of living in the Divine Will is nothing other than a birth which the Divine Sanctity does in the creatures.  It is the greatest miracle It can make in the creatures; it is the miracle which can give all to God, which can love Him for all, even for those who do not yet exist, and which can receive all from God.  In fact, finding His Most Holy Will in us, He finds the space in which to place His Sanctity, His Goodness, His Beauty, His graces, and also His divine works.  So, He is able to form His own Divine Generation in all our acts.  Oh, how glorified and loved is God, in seeing the generation of His Divine Life in our tiny acts – even in the breath, in the motion, in the step!

The Sanctity of living in the Divine Will is symbolized by the Sun, which does good to all, gives Itself to all, denies Itself to no one, and while almost holding the earth on Its lap (giving to each plant, to some color, to some sweetness, to some fragrance – things which are all different and distinct among each other), yet, while doing so much good, the Sun never says a word; It allows Its light be trodden by our steps; It follows us everywhere, and all the glory and honor is of God, who made It Sun.  Such is the soul who lives in the Divine Will, whom the Lord uses to do good to all, and from whom He receives glory and honor, as if all had loved Him.

Therefore, love very much that the Divine Will be known, in order to form His divine Generation upon earth, that He may abound even more with His beloved creatures.  He feels so much the need to love and to be loved, but does not find His Will; His Love remains hampered, and He is not able to give or receive what He wants… The Divine Will has such surprises in the soul that the Heavens are astonished and the Angels remain mute, in seeing our Creator enclosed in our tiny act.

Beloved son, I recommend to you – never go out of the Divine Will.  I commend myself to your prayers, and leaving you bound to the Divine Family to live together with Them, I send you my regards from the heart,

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

Dearest son in the Divine Volition,

Your dear letter brought me joy.  Thank you, thank you!  May the Divine Volition reward you by making you know Its Divine Will, because Its life grows in us as we get to know It.  A good cannot be possessed if it is not known; and as we get to know it, our capacity is expanded and this good takes Its royal place in us.  So, Its Sanctity, Its Beauty, Its Love are increased in us, and it forms its little divine seas within our soul.  This is why all the effort of the enemy is to prevent the knowledge of the Divine Will from coming out to light, because he would lose his kingdom on earth.

The first thing that the Divine Will does when It is known is to transform us in good, and to floor our passions.  From weak, It makes us strong, and Its power causes such a change within our soul to the extent of making us feel the possession of our God, and so our will becomes a divine chamber.  With It, everything will become easy; we will feel Heaven within us; our acts will be communicated to the Saints and to the Queen of Heaven, who awaits with so much love that her children take part in her acts, in the divine seas which She possesses… We will feel bound, and with right, to the Divine Family, because Their Will is also ours.

Most esteemed son, you could give greater glory to God and greater good to creatures, than by obtaining many children to living in His Will.  You must know that for everything we do to make It known, the Divine Will takes Its place in us and does everything Itself.  We are nothing but concurrent, giving It the place in order to let It work and do whatever It wants.  One can say that we give It the step to let It walk, the hands to let It work, the voice to let It speak.

The news from Germany, although they are not what we hoped for, are still good.  The time will come when It will triumph over all and the blind will open their eyes to a good so great.

I believe with certainty that good Jesus is pleased with what you do in order to increase the children of the Divine Will.  Even more, you must know that in everything we do in order to make the Divine Will known, His Love is so great that He Himself does it within us:  it is He who speaks, works, and pushes us.  His contentment is so great that He Himself does everything.  Therefore, continue to call many children around the Father and the Celestial Mother.

I leave you in the Divine Volition, and sending you my regards from the heart, I say,

                                                                                      The little daughter of the Divine Will.

Fiat! – In Volunatate Dei!

Most esteemed son of the Divine Will,

Thank you for all your attentions, especially for doing the petition to the Holy Father.  Let us hope that Our Lord will enlighten him.  Your letter was of great consolation for me, especially the letter from Sister Maria Deo Gratias.

Oh, how I wish that all would understand what it means to live in the Divine Will!  It is the greatest miracle that Jesus can do for the creatures; it is the greater glory He can receive.  To live in It means to love with His own Love and, together with Jesus, to possess the Creative and Preserving Power – He, by nature; we, by grace.  We can say that we are inseparable from Him; we will feel the life of good with right.  One feels that passions, weaknesses and all evils have no reason to exist before a Will so holy… Jesus loves so much one who lives in the Divine Will that He prepares a chain of prodigies, one different from the other, and always new in Sanctity, Beauty and Love, such that He Himself feels enraptured by this creature.  His perennial occupation, one could say, is that He is unable to be without the soul who lives in His Holy Will.  To live in It is to storm Heaven, and all our acts, even the most tiny and natural ones, become messengers of peace between Heaven and earth… Oh, if all would understand this, to live in It would become our predominant passion and all evils would flee from us!

I am sorry for good Amelia, for her sufferings.  But dear Jesus, in order to give us His likeness, creates pain by the touch of His paternal fingers, and makes the most beautiful pearls, the most refulgent suns, the most expensive diamonds come out from it; and He gives us His most ardent kisses and the tightest hugs.  Crosses are always His precious inheritance.

Pray for me; and leaving you enclosed in the Divine Volition – father, mother and son – to make yourselves saints, I greet you with the love of the Fiat,

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

Most esteemed son in the Divine Volition,

Thank you for all your attentions.  Oh, how I’d love to give all my life to make everyone know the Divine Will!  These are the sighs, the anxieties, the follies of love of dear Jesus, who wants to make the Divine Will known to all, so that It may be possessed, because when we possess It, It works the most beautiful wonders and the greatest prodigies in our souls.  Without It, we are as many cripple; with It, everything is beauty and sanctity, such as to enrapture God Himself.  And then, to live of Will of God means to love God with His own Love; and since the Divine Will is everywhere, we love Him for all and in all, even in the Saints and in the Queen of Heaven, who feels glorified more by those who want to love God with His own Heart.

What the Divine Will does in one who lives in It is unspeakable, incomprehensible, and so amazing as to astonish Heaven and earth; even the Angels remain speechless.  There is nothing that could glorify God more, that could raise us more to His likeness, that could preserve more in us His Divine Sanctity, His beauty and freshness, the firmness in good and the order of His wisdom, than living in His Will.

Therefore, at any cost, even giving our lives, let us give It the right to live in us, to dominate and to reign.  Let us fulfill our duty, both with words and in writing; we will sow many divine seeds into the souls, which will form the Divine Generation within their acts – acts which will turn into suns to give light to all.

I commend myself to your prayers; and leaving you in the Divine Volition to form images of our Creator, and sending you my regards with the Love of the Fiat, I say,

Most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will.

Most esteemed son in the Divine Volition,

(…) What you say is not true – that is, that the beauty, the sublimeness, the Sanctity, which the Divine Will produces in our acts are seen and enjoyed only by God.  False.  If God receives, He gives.  He rewards even one thought of ours, one sigh, one movement done to fulfill His Will.  And He says:  “The creature has sighed to do my Will; I must pay her.”  And do you want to know what is the pay He gives us?  An imperturbable peace, a strength which is such to be able to bear anything.  And if the earth surrounds us by necessity, we feel the weight and the nausea of it, and we long for Heaven.

To feel pleasures, imperfections, weaknesses, is not evil.  Wanting them is ugly, because the Lord does not care of what we feel, but of what we want.  So, let us be attentive, and let us not waste time with things which do not belong to the Divine Will.  More so, since the Lord does not teach difficult things.  What He wants is exactly the little things, because they are easier to do, and we cannot find an excuse and say:  “I could not do it.”  The little things are always around us, in our hands; while the great ones come rarely.  So, we cannot say that sanctity is not for us.  Even our own nature is formed with many little acts – the breath, the heartbeat, the motion; yet, they form our life.  And if we lacked only one breath, our life – we can say – is ended.  So can we say if our little acts are not animated by the Will of God.  Therefore, let us allow everything we do to flow in the Divine Will and we will feel enlivened and in possession of the Life of the Fiat.  How happy and holy we will be! (…)

Most esteemed son,

I hope you will feel better, because you still have much to do to make the Divine Will known.  It will be the bearer of true peace, of true sanctity, and will give back to us the rights which we have lost by doing our own will.  Not only this, but the Lord will have the great glory of forming the divine Generation in all our acts.  How happy we will be, thinking that in every little act of ours – even in the breath, in the motion, in the steps – we will form as many Jesuses, as many Divine Lives, for as many acts as we do!  Oh, how Jesus longs for this, reaching the point of counting the minutes, the breaths, to form His life in the acts of the creature and say:  “The creature loves Me with my own Love; she adore Me, she prays to Me with my own prayers…”  In this way we will populate the Sun, the earth, the sea, with many Divine Lives.  Then will our lives live hidden in God, and we will do what the Lord wants and does.  Therefore, let us pray, in order to obtain such a great good.

I send you the greeting of the Fiat, that It may keep you enclosed in the Divine Will. (…)

Most esteemed son in the Divine Volition,

I answer to your dear letter.  To hear that you speak of the Divine Will and that you want to know more about It is a great joy for me, knowing how content is Jesus to find a soul who wants to live of Divine Will.  This creature is His triumph and His victory.  And even if in the past He was wounded by this creature, He looks at these wounds, smiles and says:  “I have conquered her; she is my victory”, and He shows her around to all of Heaven to make feast.  And as fulfillment of His victory, He centralizes all His goods in her:  the goods of Creation and of Redemption, and gives her the right over everything.  And then, wanting to know a good means wanting to possess it; it is like the appetite for food.

I am sorry for Padre Pio, if he makes a dark face.  We do not speak of what the Church has prohibited, but of what the Church Herself does not yet know.  And the day will come when the Church will know and appreciate, with triumph and victory.  Nor can there be true peace or true triumph if the Divine Will is not known.  Our Lord will make the greatest miracles, to make His Will reign upon earth.  Therefore, let us pray that the time will be shortened and that everything will be changed into Will of God.

I commend myself to your prayers.  Kiss the hands of Padre Pio for me.  And leaving you all in the sea of the Divine Will, that you may all live from Its Sanctity, Love and Light, to be able to embrace everything and everyone, and to do good to all, with the Love of Its Fiat, I send my regards to all,

                                                                                      The little daughter of the Divine Will.

133.  To Federico Abresch

Dearest son in the Divine Volition,

I answer to your most dear letter, and I pray that Jesus will give you ever new graces and light, in order to make everyone understand the living in the Divine Will.  Oh, how Jesus longs for it, and reaches the point of crying for the desire that we know the Holy Divine Will, and that It reign and dominate in the whole world, because it is a decree of the Most Holy Trinity that the Divine Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.  Just as Creation and Redemption were decreed, so has the Kingdom of the Divine Will upon earth been decreed.  Therefore He will use all His art; He will take the creature from all sides – with terrible chastisements, with amazing miracles – so that this may happen.  He will reach such extent that the first one in the sacrifice will be Jesus Himself:  He will place Himself at the head of all our acts, so that all of them may flow in the sea of the Divine Will…

And if Jesus is chastising us, it is exactly because of this – because the creatures, especially on the religious side, instead of allowing Jesus to conquer them through love, as He wanted, have let themselves be taken through chastisements… Poor Jesus, how much He suffers!  And how He sighs and cries because the creatures do not pray Him, do not press Him to concede them the gift of living in the Will of God.  And if He finds one, He takes her in His arms, He makes feasts, He feels like a victorious King who, although He had to suffer for six thousand years receiving wounds and defeats, has now finally made His first conquest.  And He enjoys her triumphantly, calling all of Heaven to celebrate His first victory.  And while He makes feast, He places His Sanctity, His Love, His Light, His graces, at the creature’s disposal, and gives her the right to her Celestial Fatherland… So, even being on earth, she possesses the Celestial Fatherland and can say:  “All that is done in Heaven, I do on earth; even more, they do it enjoying and delighting, I do it making new conquests, which serve to bring new joys to Heaven.”

Therefore, say to all that there is no greater thing, or a more amazing prodigy than to live in the Divine Will:  we place ourselves at God’s disposal, and He places Himself at our disposal, to the point of making us form as many Jesuses for as many acts as we do in His Holy Will.

The seas of the Divine Will are not yet known.  If they were known, all would dive into the sea of the Divine Volition to live perennial life in It.  Therefore, let us pray and wait:  Jesus has the centuries in His power; whatever He does not do today, He will do tomorrow, because today the minds are blind.  Tomorrow He will find eyes which will be able to sustain the Light of the Divine Will, and He will do all that He has not done today.

Sending you my regards, I leave you all in the immense sea of the Divine Will.

                                                                                      The little daughter of the Divine Will.
