THE LITTLE FAMILY OF LUISA PICCARRETA
The Archbishop of Trani asks that we be the little children of the Family of Luisa
Within the Great Family of the Holy Catholic Church
“Within the mosaic of the many families existing in the world, from the Heart of God
and by His Most Holy Will arises the “The Little Family of Luisa Piccarreta.”
“Accordingly, the family must go back to the “beginning” of God’s creative act, if it is to attain self-knowledge and self-realization in accordance with the inner truth not only of what it is but also of what it does in history.” Familiaris Consortio, Family Become What You Are, +Blessed Pope John Paul II
V27–1/10/30 “My daughter (Luisa)! whether little or great, you (Luisa) belong to Our Divine Family; you (Luisa) are a member of It, and this is enough for you. Even more, it is everything for you, and is the greatest glory and honor you could possess.”
After this, my lovable Jesus made Himself seen as a tiny little child, who, throwing His arms around my neck, told me: “My mama, My mama…. One who does My Divine Will becomes mother; My Divine Fiat embellishes her for Me, transforms her, and renders her fecund, in such a way as to give her all the qualities in order to be a true mother. And I keep forming this mother with the reflections of the Sun of My Divine Volition, and I glory and take so much pleasure in calling her My mama, My mama…. And not only do I choose her as My mother, but I call many more tiny little ones and give to them My mother as their mother.”
And while He was saying this, He showed me many little boys and girls around me; and the child Jesus said to them: “This is My mother and your mama.”
V25–11/14/28 “The little ones made feast and drew all around me together with Jesus; and Jesus added: “These little ones you see are no other than the first cohort of the children of My Divine Volition. In It, all will be little, because My Divine Will has the virtue of preserving them fresh and beautiful, just as they came out of Our Creative Hands. And since It called your littleness to live in It, it is right that, as The First One, you (Luisa) be the tiny little mama of the tiny little children.”
V24–5/26/28 “And since everything is established and ordered by the Divinity, It awaits the one who must give the strongest knock, who, forcing the doors with invincible strength—the very strength of My Divine Will—will open wide the doors, and with her sweet chains of love will bind the Eternal Will to make It come to reign in the midst of creatures. She will be like a bride who, bejeweling the groom with her loving chains, will carry him as though in triumph into the midst of creatures. And just as the Holy Virgin put an end to the night hours of the Patriarchs and Prophets, and formed the dawn to make the Sun of the Eternal Word rise, so will this one form the dawn to make rise the Sun of the Fiat Voluntas Tua on earth as It is in Heaven.”
The Little Family of Luisa is founded on the high spirituality of the Divine Will.
V27-1/10/30…“Indeed everyone belongs to Me by bonds of creation, but there is great difference from one who belongs to Me not only by bonds of creation, but with bond of fusion of wills—that is, Mine is her sole and only will. I can say that these belong to Me with bonds of true family of Ours, because the will is the most intimate thing that can exist, both in God and in the creature; it is the essential part of life, it is the director, it is the dominator that has the virtue of binding, with inseparable bonds, God and the creature; and from this inseparability it can be recognized that she belongs to Our Divine family.”
It has as its principle of life the prayer of the “Our Father”, and as a specific focus “Your Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven” (Matthew 6:10).
V20–10/15/26 Therefore, in the ‘Our Father’, in the words ‘Your Will be done’ is the prayer that all may do the Supreme Will, and in ‘on earth as It is in Heaven,’ that man may return into that Will from which he came, in order to reacquire his happiness, the lost goods, and the possession of his Divine Kingdom.”
This part of the Prayer of prayers constitutes the secret for the Fulfillment and the completion of the Kingdom of God “on earth as It is in Heaven“, because it is the Divine Will that wants to Reign in man as It did in the innocent Adam.
V15–4/14/23 “Now, in order to dispose souls to live in My Will, to let them partake in the Goods It contains, and to make man return to the path of his origin, just as he was created by Me, I Myself wanted to pray as the first, making My Voice resound from one end of the earth to another, and even up high in Heaven, saying: ‘Our Father, who art in Heaven’. I did not say ‘My Father,’ but I called Him Father of the whole human family, so as to engage Him in that which I was going to add: ‘May all hallow Your Name, so that Your Kingdom may come, and your Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.’ This was the purpose of Creation, and I asked the Father that it be fulfilled. As I prayed, the Father surrendered to My supplications, and I formed the Seed of a Good so great; and so that this Seed might be known, I taught My prayer to the Apostles, and they transmitted it to the whole Church, so that, just as the people of the future Redeemer found salvation in Him and disposed itself to receive the promised Messiah, in the same way, with this Seed formed by Me, the Church might pray and repeat My very prayer many times, and might dispose Herself to receive the good of recognizing and loving My Celestial Father as their Father, in such a way as to deserve to be loved as children and receive the great Good that My Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.
V23–2/25/28 “My very praying to the Celestial Father: ‘Let It come—let Your Kingdom come; Your Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven,’ meant that with My coming upon earth the Kingdom of My Will was not established in the midst of creatures; otherwise I would have said: ‘My Father, let Our Kingdom, that I have already established on earth, be confirmed, and let Our Will dominate and reign.’ Instead, I said: ‘Let It come.’ This meant that It must come, and creatures must await It with that certainty with which they awaited the future Redeemer, because there is My Divine Will, bound and committed, in those words of the ‘Our Father’; and when It binds Itself, whatever It promises is more than certain. More so, since everything was prepared by Me; nothing else was needed but the manifestation of My Kingdom—and this I am doing.
“Do you think that My giving you (Luisa) so many Truths about My Fiat is only to give you simple news? No, no; it is because I want everyone to know that Its Kingdom is near, and to know Its beautiful prerogatives, so that all may love—may yearn to enter, to Live in a Kingdom so holy, full of happiness and of all goods.”
V26–7/24/29 “Therefore, My coming upon earth served to draw the two wills, human and Divine, closer to each other, and to place them in intimate relations, and to increase the news in order to make It known; so much so, that I taught the ‘Our Father,’ making them say: ‘Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.’ If My Will does not Live on earth as It does in Heaven, it cannot be said that It has Its Kingdom in the midst of creatures. And therefore, in the time of Its Kingdom, It will be present not only in their midst, but inside each one of them as perennial Life; and in order to come to this, It must be recognized—how It is like head and primary Life of each creature; and because this head is not recognized, Its Strength, Its Sanctity, Its Beauty, does not flow to the members, nor can It let Its noble and Divine Blood flow in their veins, and therefore the Life of Heaven cannot be seen in creatures. So, this is why I love so much that My Divine Will be known—knowledge will make love arise; and feeling loved and longed for, It will feel drawn to come to reign in the midst of creatures.”
V31–2/24/33 “The same for My Will, completely spontaneous I told them: ‘Pray that My Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.’ And when spontaneously ‘Pray this will happen’ is said, without anyone having importuned Me, it means that first I looked at everything in My All-Seeingness, I pondered things very well, and when I saw that this was possible, then I decided to teach the Our Father, wanting the human will united to Ours so that it might yearn that It would come to Reign on earth as It does in Heaven. Therefore, everything I have manifested about My Will, is enclosed in these words alone: ‘May Your Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.’ In these few words are contained abysses of Graces, of Sanctity, of Light, and abysses of communication and Divine Transformations between the Creator and creature.
And It gives Its clear manifestation in the sanctity and life of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, whom many, especially in Corato know as Luisa “la Santa” (Luisa “the Saint”).
V15–4/14/23 “…in the same way, now, when the Church recites the ‘Our Father’, it is precisely for you (Luisa) that She prays, so that I may centralize in you (Luisa) all the good that My Will contains, the ‘way’ – the ‘how’ the Divine Will may have Life on earth as It does in Heaven. And even though you are not known, by echoing My prayer, ‘Thy Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven’, the Church prays Me, presses Me to centralize all this good in a second virgin, so that, like a second savior, she may save unsafe humanity; and making use of My inseparable Love and Mercy, I may answer My own prayer, united to that of the whole Church, making man come back to his origin, to the purpose for which I created him – that My Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.
V15-5/2/23 “Had I not been conceived in My beloved Mama, Redemption would never have taken place. In the same way, if I do not operate the prodigy of making one soul live in My Supreme Will, the ‘Fiat Voluntas Tua on earth as it is in Heaven’, will not take place in the human generations.”
V20–10/12/26…“Now, don’t you know that the primacy that Adam lost as firstborn son of My Will has passed on to you (Luisa), and that in you (Luisa) I (Jesus) must enclose all the goods that I was to enclose in him, had he not withdrawn from My Will? Therefore, I (Jesus) look at you (Luisa) as the first creature come out of Our Hands, because the one (Luisa) who lives in My Will is always the first before her Creator; and even if she is born later in time, this says nothing: in Our Will, the one (Luisa) who has never gone out of It is always first.
GOD CHOOSES – GOD CALLS
This is a call from God and an answer on the part of man. Entering and belonging to the little Family of Luisa means being called to live a spirit of communion with God and with our brothers and sisters in Him. It is a call, It is a gift which starts from the unity of wills, for the accomplishment of this purpose: to Live the Divine Will, according to the message that Jesus gave us though little mama Luisa.
V18–8/9/25 “…for this I called you (Luisa) in My Will, so that you (Luisa) associate yourself to Us and follow and repeat Our Acts.”
It is an alliance, a participation of spirit that tends to form a chain, built with the strength of the good will and the love of charity, without ever losing sight of the goal: the Kingdom of the Supreme FIAT as one’s own life.
V11–12/30/16 “…since I am free, and so is she, we might pour ourselves into each other and run – run toward Heaven to love and glorify the Father, and to dwell together with the Sacrosanct Trinity; run toward the earth to do good to all; run into the hearts of all to strike them with our Love, to chain them with our Will, and make of them conquests.
V34-4/4/37 “But do you know where We (God) are Free to form this Life of Ours? In the one who Lives in Our Will. Our Divine Fiat prepares the prime materials for Us in order to form Our Life. It places in attitude Its Power, Its Sanctity, Its Love, and calls Us into the depth of the soul. And We, finding the adaptable and workable matter, with Indescribable Love form Our Divine Life. Not only do We form it, but We raise it, and with Our highest enjoyment and delight We develop Our Creative Art around this Celestial creature. And the chain of Prodigies begins. She, possessing her Creator and Our Will Operating in her, becomes the Bearer of everyone and of everything.”
It is an opening towards the brothers and sisters, because being family means to give and receive, to love and to be loved in God, since where Love is lacking there is sterility, and only a forced observation of the law allows the re-establishment of balance, unity of wills, stability. Charity, instead, leads to fecundity of spirit:
“Looking at it in such a way as to reach its very roots, we must say that the essence and role of the family are in the final analysis specified by love. Hence the family has the mission to guard, reveal and communicate love, and this is a living reflection of and a real sharing in God’s love for humanity and the love of Christ the Lord for the Church His bride. (Familiaris Consortio, Family Become What You Are, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
BEING CALLED TO ANSWER
This call, united to the answer, the “Yes,” the continuous “Fiat,” leads to the recognition and the acceptance of oneself and of all of those who are called by Our Lord in this spiritual Family of Luisa, even with all our limits and weaknesses, but with a good disposition that certainly nobody lacks.
“The Christian family is also called to experience a new and original communion which confirms and perfects natural and human communion. In fact the grace of Jesus Christ, “the first-born among many brethren “(56) is by its nature and interior dynamism “a grace of brotherhood,” as St. Thomas Aquinas calls it.(57) The Holy Spirit, who is poured forth in the celebration of the sacraments, is the living source and inexhaustible sustenance of the supernatural communion that gathers believers and links them with Christ and with each other in the unity of the Church of God. The Christian family constitutes a specific revelation and realization of ecclesial communion, and for this reason too it can and should be called “the domestic Church.”(58) (Familiaris Consortio, The Broader Communion of the Family, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
It is important to maintain a spirit of humility, in which each one feels smaller than the other, or rather, maintains a sense of nothingness before God and the creatures, because we become part of “the Family of Luisa” in which no human interest can enter, since everything is oriented toward the interest of the Kingdom of God – Its diffusion and Its establishment throughout the entire humanity.
Family communion can only be preserved and perfected through a great spirit of sacrifice. It requires, in fact, a ready and generous openness of each and all to understanding, to forbearance, to pardon, to reconciliation.
“All members of the family, each according to his or her own gift, have the grace and responsibility of building, day by day, the communion of persons, making the family “a school of deeper humanity”(59) (Familiaris Consortio, The Broader Communion of the Family, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
In all the variety and diversity of the Works of God, there is, as their foundation, a collaboration at the associative level, and each of these works has its starting point and its arrival point in the Will of God. God created us by His Will and for pure Love, with no concourse from our side; and it is precisely in this project of Love that He calls us to be associated for the fulfillment of our happiness in Him.
V31–9/18/32 “And this page was written ‘ab eterno’; it was written in the Light of Our Will, such that the life of each creature in time had its beginning, but in Our Supreme Being it had no beginning.”
Our Father did not want to remain alone in His Eternal happiness, because, after having created the universe and sustained it with the Creative Power of His Divine Will, He created Adam to make him part of His Sanctity. Almighty God could have done without Adam! Nothing increases or decreases His Eternal beatitude, but to signify the union of our human life with His Most Holy Divine Will, He wanted to give to the creature His own Image and resemblance to make her participate in His Sanctity. But the first man, Adam, rejected this Gift, therefore he remained with the load of all human miseries with consequences for all human generations.
V31–10/9/32 “…there is nothing that pleases Us (Triune God) more, than seeing the creature in that same Will in which she was Created.
THE SPIRIT OF THE FAMILY OF LUISA
By entering into the spirit of the Family of Luisa, we can see how It was born from a Divine project for the re-establishment of the fallen man.
“Yes indeed, the families of today must be called back to their original position. They must follow Christ.”(182) (Familiaris Consortio, The Future of Humanity Passes by Way of the Family, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
V20 – 10/26/26 “Now, while I was saying this, my highest Good, Jesus, was moved and touched, and making my first father Adam present to me, let him himself tell me, with emphasis of love, all special: “Blessed daughter (Luisa), finally my Lord God, after so many centuries, has delivered to the light of the day she who was to think about giving me back the honor and the glory that I lost, alas, by doing My Will. How I feel my happiness redoubled.
“Until now, no one has ever thought of giving me back that honor that I lost. Therefore I thank God profoundly for having delivered you to the light, and I thank you (Luisa), the daughter dearest to me, for taking on the commitment of giving back to God the glory as if His Will had never been offended by me, and to me the great honor that the Kingdom of the Supreme Fiat be established once again in the midst of the human generations. It is right that I give you (Luisa) the place that had been destined to me, as the first creature that came out of the hands of our Creator.”
Everything is in the mind of God from Eternity, and not only does He have His plans, but also His moments, and everything is manifested and unfolded at the appropriate time; we just need to be open to the Light of His Spirit, and to be disposed to the manifestation of His Will.
The Family of Luisa is characterized by the union of wills with the Will of the Father, not for our choice, but by choice of the Father Himself.
“You did not choose me; I chose you… ” (John – 15:16)
It proceeds in the name of unity, determined in its specific ideal and purpose: to reach a growing stability of life in the FIAT VOLUNTAS TUA. This begins with a Divine call which associates people to re-build and establish an intimate and intense relation of life between God and the creature, between Heaven and earth: “On earth as it is in Heaven.”
It is a supernatural reality with a deep and intimate participation that does not obstruct the bonds of the human family, rather, it strengthens them. From here an exclusive and real interest arises for the Lord and for the glory of His Kingdom in the world. By living this purpose, we can reach Unity, and Unity leads to the Kingdom.
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, was the theme for the Pope’s reflections before praying the Angelus, as he invited the faithful “to join the prayer which Jesus addressed to the Father on the eve of His Passion: ‘That they may all be one, so that the world may believe'”.
“…Recognizing and welcoming the transforming power of faith in Jesus Christ supports Christians in their search for full unity among themselves”.
Benedict XVI affirmed that “our search for unity will be realistic if change first comes about within us, if we let God act, if we allow ourselves to be transformed in the image of Christ, if we enter into new life in Christ Who is the True Victory. The visible unity of all Christians always comes from on high, from God; it requires humility to recognize our weakness and to accept the gift. However, to use a phrase often repeated by Blessed Pope John Paul II, each gift is also a task. And so the unity that comes from God requires a daily commitment on our part to open ourselves to one another in charity. … The time we dedicate to prayer for the full communion of Christ’s disciples will give us a deeper understanding of how we will be transformed by His victory, by the power of His Resurrection”. (Pope Benedict XVI, Vatican City, 22 Jan 2012)
Jesus prays for the Church in all times, He also prays for us. … The main element in Jesus’ priestly prayer for His disciples is His request for the future unity of those who will believe in Him. This unity is not a worldly achievement. It derives exclusively from divine unity and comes down to us from the Father, through the Son and in the Holy Spirit”.
…By this priestly prayer Jesus establishes the Church, “which is nothing other than the community of disciples who, through their faith in Christ as the One sent by the Father, receive His unity and are involved in Jesus’ mission to save the world by leading it to a knowledge of God”.
“…Let us ask Him for the gift of visible unity among all those who believe in Christ, …that we may be ready to respond to anyone who asks us about the reasons for our hope”.
(Pope Benedict XVI – Christian Unity Requires Individual Conversion – Vatican City, 25 Jan 2012
V27–11/14/29 “Now, My daughter (Luisa), the one who Lives in My Divine Will possesses the rights of her creation, and therefore, more than sun, she Lives in the Unity of her Creator; she is the reproducer of the effects of the Divine Unity. In this Unity she gathers everything, embraces everyone, warms everyone, and with the breath of the Divine Unity she produces in the hearts of creatures all the effects that are present in the Kingdom of Grace. But while, more than sun, she plays in touching everything, with her touches she gives sanctity, virtue, love, sweetness, that are Divine; she would want to enclose everyone in the Unity of her Creator.
It is a link between the Will of God and the human will of each one so that, as a consequence, the relation with God and fecundity of spirit within the associative family are reinforced. So, the Family of Luisa becomes a channel which originates from God, to grant and bestow Divine Enlightenment and Divine Gifts on the work started, embracing all those who feel interested in working, living and calling the Kingdom of the Divine FIAT upon earth.”
V11–9/20/15 “My daughter (Luisa), the FIAT must be the sweet tie that will bind all your acts. My Will and yours will form the knot. Know that every thought, word and act done, tied with My Will, will be like many channels of communication opened between Myself and the creature. If all your acts will be tied to My Will, not one channel of Divine Communication will be closed between you and Me.” Our Lord did not want a single religious institution; rather, He wanted “the Family of Luisa” of the Kingdom of the Divine Will, the one that was inside His Heart and His mind when man, because of the original sin, lost the Divine sonship and the Will of God as life.
V16–11/24/23 “…Now, in order to tie again these two wills, One was needed Who contained in Himself a Divine Will……Who could take the human flesh to come and save man, and to retie the two broken wills…”
The Family of Luisa is the direct channel that starts in the Heart of the Father, surpassing laws and means, to re-establish that bond, broken in Eden, between the Will of God and the human will.
V29–5/31/31 “Now, in order to form the great Kingdom of Our Will upon earth, first We will make the many tiny little houses of Nazareth—that is, the souls who will want to know It in order to let It reign within themselves. I, Myself, and the Sovereign Queen, will be at the head of these tiny little houses, because, We having been the first to possess this Kingdom on earth, it is Our right, that We will not surrender to anyone, to be the directors of them. Then, with these tiny little houses, repeaters of Our house of Nazareth, We will form many little states of Ours, many provinces, that, after they have been formed well, and ordered like many little Kingdoms of Our Will, will fuse together and will form one single Kingdom and one great people. Therefore, in order to have Our greatest works, Our way of acting is to begin, first alone, one on one with one single creature; when We have formed this one, We make her a channel in order to enclose in Our Work two or three more creatures; then We expand, forming a little group, and then We expand it so much as to take the whole entire world.”
After the fall, the Divine Decree was instantaneous: the promise of the Redemption. The second Adam, Jesus. The second Eve, Mary. Jesus, associated to the Will of the Father. Mary, associated to the Will of the Father and to the Redemptive Work of the Son, to become Co-Redemptrix of mankind.
“…The Virgin Mary, appearing with the image of Her Son Crucified, makes us understand that She too is associated to the work of salvation, and She is close to Her children immersed in the proves…” From the Letter of +Blessed Pope John Paul II, on the 150th anniversary of La Salette
V17-5/1/25 “In addition to Me, there is My Celestial Mama, who received the unique mission as the Mother of a God Son, and the office of Co-Redemptrix of mankind. For Her mission of Divine Maternity, She was enriched with so much grace, that all other creatures combined, both celestial and terrestrial, would never be able to equal Her.”
“…And as She conceived Me, She took on the office of Co- Redemptrix, and shared and embraced together with Me, all the pains, the substitutions, the reparations, the maternal love, for all. In the Heart of my Mother there was a fiber of maternal love for each creature. This is why, in truth and with justice, when I was on the Cross, I declared Her Mother of all.”
V17-5/4/25 “…the Virgin, with Her Maternity which conceals the Paternity of the Celestial Father and encloses His power in order to fulfill Her mission of Mother of the Eternal Word and Co-Redemptrix of mankind…”
And the Father manifested His Will by associating to Himself and in Jesus and Mary, man, only for love of him, and to dissociate the enemy and his followers, casting them in the infernal regions.
“I will make you and the woman hate each other; her offspring and yours will always be enemies. Her offspring will crush your head and you will bite her offspring’s heal.” (Gen. 3:15)
This is the Family of Luisa which takes origin in that Divine Project to restore the most beautiful work of Creation: man, this creature provided with memory, intelligence and will.
This was the plan of God manifested to humanity, to bring the lost man back to His Fatherly Heart, restored, saved, and sanctified again. Mary was the first creature to be directly associated to this Divine Plan.
V17–11/30/24 “…Because when God decides and proposes, He will not be moved, no matter how many the opposing events…”
Luisa too, and with her all of us and the whole of humanity, were called to be associated for the fulfillment of this project of Love, which leads to the completion of the Kingdom of God on earth; but the time appointed by Him had to come first.
“Soul, do you want to give me a hand?” My Redemption is certainly enough, but I need more souls to be associated with Me in this Calvary, in this immolation, because man never gets tired of offending God…” (From the homily of Archbishop Cassati, 11-20-1994 Christ the King)
“Now, your mission of making known the Eternal Will is braided with mine and with that of my dear Mother. And since it has to serve for the good of all, it was necessary to centralize the Eternal Sun of my Will into one creature; so that, as a unique mission, this Sun might let its rays blaze from her, and all might take the good of Its Light.”
“To you (Luisa), Firstborn Daughter of My Divine Will, it is given to make known the qualities, the value, the good It contains, and Its eternal sorrow of living unknown – hidden, in the midst of the human generations…”
V17–5/1/25 “Everything I told you (Luisa) for this mission was necessary – not for you, but for the honor, the glory, the knowledge and the sanctity of My Will and of Its Dominion in the creatures. And since My Will is one, one was to be the creature to whom I had to entrust It, and through whom It would make Its Rays blaze, to do good to all.”
V17–5/4/25 “…and you (Luisa), for the Mission of My Will, as the Holy Spirit will display His Love in you (Luisa), manifesting to you (Luisa) His Secrets, the Prodigies of My Will, the Goods It contains, in order to make happy those who will give themselves to knowing how much Good this Supreme Will contains, to love It and to let It reign in their midst, offering their souls to let It dwell within their hearts, that It may be able to form Its Life in them. And the bond of inseparability will be added, between you (Luisa), the Mother and the Eternal Word.
Every congregation, each institution or religious order works with specific and different activities, a different charisma, but always to reach a single general purpose: charity (from the theology of the religious life), and always through direct communication with the Will of God which wants to fulfill Its restoration plan in the decayed man.
It is a channel of light which descends from God and goes back to Him, to strengthen more and more that relation which was broken by the first sin. It is an elevation from earth into Heaven.”
V19–3/2/26 “…Since My Will is in you (Luisa), it was convenient for you to bring the earth to Heaven, in order to give, in the name of all and together with the Celestial Court, that glory which will never end, for ever and ever…”
HOW TO FIND THE KINGDOM
As the members of the Family of Luisa grow and strengthen more and more the bond with the Will of God, just as between Father and Son, so they also reinforce the tight relation of charity and union of wills among themselves.
V3–3/2/00 “The most sincere kiss which binds our friendship more tightly is the Union of our wills..”
V3–5/21/00 “…rather, My design is to absorb you (Luisa) in My Will, making you (Luisa) one with It, and to make of you (Luisa) a perfect example of uniformity of your will with Mine.”
V10–10/10/11 “…but don’t you know that true Love is in the union of wills?”
V10-2/2/12 “This morning, as I offered a soul as victim to Jesus, Jesus accepted the offer, and told me: “My daughter (Luisa), the first thing I want is union of wills.
I wanted to unite Heaven and earth – Creator and creature, that they might embrace and exchange the supreme kiss of the union of their wills.”
V16-10/16/23 “Then my Jesus added: “This is your (Luisa’s) task – to live in Our midst and to make all that is Ours your own, giving it to Us on behalf of your brothers; so that, drawn by what is Ours, We may be bound to the human generations, and give them the supreme kiss of the union of their wills to Ours, which We gave to man in Creation.”
This happens in a real way for those who, disinterested and in pure faith, become members of the Family of Luisa, holding the certainty of having found the keys of the Kingdom, the precious stone: the Divine Will as life.
V4-7/31/02 “My daughter (Luisa), true charity must be disinterested on the part of one who does it, and on the part of one who receives it. If there is interest, that mud produces a smoke which blinds the mind, and prevents one from receiving the influence and the effects of Divine Charity. This is why in many works that are done, even holy, in many charitable cares that are performed, one feels as though a void, and they do not receive the fruit of the charity they do.”
V14–4/25/22 “Because those who Live in My Will are the depositories, the preservers, the supporters, the defenders of My Will. They foresee what I want, and without Me commanding, they execute what I want; and comprehending the greatness, the Sanctity of My Will, they keep It and defend It jealously. How could everyone not remain enraptured in seeing these souls who form the support of their God, by virtue of the Prodigy of My Will? Who can ever defend My Rights if not one who Lives in My Will? Who can ever really love Me, with love of disinterest similar to My Love, if not one who Lives in My Will? I feel stronger in these souls, but strong of My own Strength. I am like a king surrounded by faithful ministers, who feels stronger, more glorious, more sustained, in the midst of his faithful ones than by himself alone. If he remains alone, he regrets not having his ministers, because he has no one with whom to pour himself out, and to whom to entrust the lot of his kingdom. So I am – and who could ever be more faithful to Me than one who lives in My Will? I feel My Will being duplicated, therefore I feel more glorious, I pour Myself out with them, and I trust them.”
V29-3/2/31 “And, oh! the great difference of one who takes, with rights, the Divine Goods. This one can be called daughter, while the others can be called servants; and the creature with these rights gives Us the love of Our child, love of disinterest, love that says true love. Therefore, live always in My Will, that you may feel within yourself, and enjoy, all the Love of the Divine Paternity.”
He or she will find the lost coin, the one which was rejected by our father Adam. God placed it in His Fatherly Heart, in His Will, which contains the creative and preserving power and, after many centuries, He wants to give it back to the human generations, after having conducted humanity along the path of salvation.
“…For Us giving is delighting and making happy those who receive from Us; it is enriching without losing anything of Ourselves; it is giving what We are by nature, forming it in the creature by grace; it is getting out of Ourselves to give all that We possess…”
V18–11/12/25 “So that the Redeemer might have His field of action upon earth, and whoever wanted to, might use those acts as coins with which to purchase Heaven for himself, the imprint of innocence, of sanctity and of the Divine Will was needed; and the imprint of the operating of the Word Himself was needed in order to make man rise to Heaven. If that of the Virgin was enough to make Me descend into the midst of creatures, in order to make man rise, My Divine Operating was needed. And so, this is why I embraced all those acts and I made them My own, I made up for all, I accomplished everything, and for all I placed the Divine Imprint on all the good acts, from the first to the last man who is to come upon earth. And this Imprint was made by Me with unheard-of pains, and with the shedding of My Blood. And so, like magnanimous King, I gave to all the coins with which to purchase Heaven for themselves. All this had been established by the Uncreated Wisdom, and not even one act of all this could be missing in order for Redemption to take place.
Those who have opened their hearts to this Gift, kept by God in spite of human ingratitude, just need to cherish the desire of living it, saying together with Andrew to his brother Peter: “Come, we have found the Lord.”
Come, we have found the treasure given to our first father Adam, and that has been given to us as heritage, thanks to all of Adam’s acts done in the Divine Will before the original sin; because God does not withdraw His gifts, but He preserves them and He gives them, at the appointed time, to those who appreciate them and make of them their own lives, for the glory of God and for our eternal happiness.
We extend this announcement of the apostle to all those who are in love with the Divine Will and want to Live in It.
At this point we can say: come, we have found Luisa, the woman, through whom Blessed Jesus gave us the bread of the Divine FIAT and the Light to understand the greatness and the importance of the knowledge to possess the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
“…Come with me in Eden, where you were originated, where the Supreme Being looked for man and made him king, by giving him a reign to dominate; this reign was the whole universe, but his scepter, his crown, his empire were to be found in the depth of his soul, in which the Divine Fiat resided, as the true dominating King, constituting the true royalty of man…” (From the Appeal of Luisa for the Kingdom of the Divine Will on earth)
But in order to rise to such a height it is necessary to become very small, also because the gate is small and the thorns of the human will may give more pains than joys.
We can find the living model of littleness in the Blessed Virgin Mary, our Mother. She is the pillar of salvation, the Queen of the Divine FIAT, because she is small; who is smaller than She and who is more active than She in the spirit? Could we ever find on earth a life more simple and, at the same time, more profound than Hers? Mary, the hidden worker, who, like a Divine bee, drew sanctity from the Divine Will, giving back in return with the same generosity, allowing God to accomplish in full His Divine Design, in the name of all of us. Mary is the Tabernacle of the Divine Will, the living “Yes”; the growing FIAT; the creature who made possible the accomplishment of the associative plan of God together with His Son, for the salvation of man.
V16–11/24/23 “…The little ones are more attentive in listening to me, because they don’t have their minds filled with other things; they are as if ignorant of all…”
May the Virgin Mary, who is the Mother of the Church, also be the Mother of “the Church of the home.” Thanks to her motherly aid, may each Christian family really become a “little Church” in which the mystery of the Church of Christ is mirrored and given new life. May she, the Handmaid of the Lord, be an example of humble and generous acceptance of the will of God. May she, the Sorrowful Mother at the foot of the Cross, comfort the sufferings and dry the tears of those in distress because of the difficulties of their families. (Familiaris Consortio: The Future of Humanity Passes by Way of the Family, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
Being little means remaining newborn.
V19-2/23/26 “…Do you want to know the reason why I call you (Luisa) the little newborn? Newborn means being in the act of receiving birth, and since you have to be born again in every act in My Will, and furthermore, since My Will wants to be repaid from all the oppositions of the human wills, I want to call you (Luisa) in My Volition to make you (Luisa) be reborn for as many human wills as are opposed Mine; therefore it is necessary to keep you always as a newborn…”
The key to live this Family life is faith, pure, stable, disinterested, which leads to the possession of God; the humility which brings the awareness of our nothingness before God and before man.
V3-1/31/00 “What is the passport to enter into the Kingdom of Grace? It is Humility. Through humility, by always looking at her nothingness and seeing that she is nothing but dust or wind, the soul will place all her trust in Grace, so much so, as to make of it her Master. And Grace, taking Dominion over all of the soul, leads her along the path of all Virtues, and makes her reach the Summit of Perfection.”
V4-12/24/02 “My daughter, one who believes himself to be something before Me and before men, is worth nothing. One who believes himself to be nothing is worth everything – first, before Me, because if he does something, he does not think he does it because he can do it, having the strength and the capacity, but rather, because he receives from God the Grace, the Helps and the Lights; therefore it can be said that he does it by Virtue of Divine Power, and one who has Divine Power with him is already worth everything. Second, before men, because this acting by Virtue of Divine Power makes him operate in a completely different way, and he does nothing but send forth the Light of the Divine Power he contains within himself, in such a way that the most perverted ones, without wanting it, feel the strength of this Light and submit to his volition; and here is how he is worth everything also before men.
V11-3/21/13 “Many times satisfaction, self-esteem, ego, and all that is human fatten the air of the soul, and I am forced to send to this soul the wind of coldness, the wind of temptation, of aridity, of slander, so that these winds may cleanse the air of this soul, purify her, and bring her back to her nothingness. Nothingness opens the door to the All – to God; and the All makes many fragrant breezes blow, so that the soul, with her mouth open, may swallow that air, remaining Sanctified by it.”
God chooses whoever He wants. He calls, He invites, and if the soul is disposed and uses their free will to renounce her own human will (the cause of all evils) and to orient her freedom toward His Most Holy Divine Will, she has solved the problem of her own sanctity and of her life, therefore becoming Apostle of the Kingdom and also a pillar of the Family of Luisa.
V2–9/21/99 “My life was necessary for the salvation of the peoples; and since I could not continue it on earth, I choose whom I please in order to continue it within them, so as to continue the salvation of the peoples.”
In this Family of Luisa littleness is indispensable, and this is even in our name: The Little Children of the Most Holy Divine Will.
In order to be little one needs to be empty of oneself, and God will fill the soul with the Divine Will.
V30–4/30/32 “…This Gift was given to man in the beginning of his creation, but, ungrateful, he threw it back to Us by doing his will. Now that he disposes himself to do Our Will, he is preparing himself to receive again this Gift so great and infinite”
This is the fundamental aspect that fills and strengthens the words: Family of Luisa.
If we cultivate our littleness, humility, nothingness, the lady obedience, as Luisa called it, we will become stronger in the spirit and we’ll enjoy our littleness within the Greatness of God.
The little ones delight when they are in the arms of their parents, while they try to run away from those arms when they grow up.
The same thing happened with our Heavenly Father.
Pride swells, producing the illness of the soul, pushing us away from Him.
Littleness purifies the spirit, freeing it and placing it inside the Heart of God the Father, because only to the little ones is it given to enter the Kingdom of Heaven; and this, also being on earth, by growing in the Light of the Divine Will.
The gate of the Kingdom of God is narrow because it implies a sanctity through personal purification, to give God the space to Reign in us and we in Him.
It is very important to cultivate and evaluate this aspect in the Family of Luisa. Much trust, faith and constancy are necessary. All this is obtained just by feeling little, becoming little like babies, empty of human reason, of human will, and with a free life oriented toward the One who gave that life as a gift.
V13-12/3/21 “…Therefore, let Me reign and give Me full freedom”
The growing aspect of the Family of Luisa is the constant “Yes” which takes life from the unity of wills. This can be accomplished if each member is committed to knowing the spirit of the Family of Luisa: the spirit which unites two wills, the will of man and the Will of God to make one single Will. This round, this exchange of wills is transmitted also through the members, forming one way of life between God and the neighbors.
V17–9/11/24 “My daughter, remember that I asked of you a “Yes” in My Will, and you (Luisa) pronounced it with all love. That “Yes” still exists and holds its prime place in My unending Will. Everything you (Luisa) do, think and say, is bound to that “Yes”, which nothing can escape, and My Will enjoys and makes feast in seeing a will of creature Live in My Will; and I keep filling her with New Graces, making of all of your acts Divine Acts. This is the greatest portent which exists between Heaven and earth. It is the object most dear to Me…”
The Mercy of God invites all His children to live in His Will, putting them in direct communication with Him because, through His direct intervention, the Divine Will and human will can communicate.
This means having a reciprocal exchange of life with the Divine Will, which gradually absorbs all the life of man. It is a Divine Sonship that starts from the Heart of God the Father and comes directly back to Him as a return and answer to all man has received.
V35–1/7/38 “See then, how We (Triune God) find the refuge for Our Life in the one (Luisa) who Lives in Our Will. We (Triune God) do nothing other than exchange Our Lives continuously: she (Luisa) gives Us (Triune God) her life, and We (Triune God) give her Ours. In this exchange of Life, We find the one who can receive Our Life; giving Us her own, so We can give of Ourselves and do whatever We want—We feel like God, as We are. Therefore, Living in Our Will serves Us (Triune God) as a refuge—a theater for Our Works, refreshment for Our Love and return for the entire Creation.”
The Kingdom of the Divine Will can not be complete on earth without a growing spiritual Family of Luisa in the knowledge and the diffusion of the writings of Luisa.
“Therefore, I feel happy in your (Luisa’s) soul because I am in the midst of My speaking heavens, stars and suns; but My Happiness is doubled when you (Luisa) make the sacrifice of writing, because I see that these speaking heavens will go out, and their word will form new heavens that will bring the life of My Divine Fiat into the midst of creatures. Then will Heaven no longer be foreign to the earth, because these speaking heavens will form the New Celestial Family upon earth, and their word will place Creator and creature in communication. The winds of these Knowledges will place the Secret Joys of the Most Holy Trinity in common; and as the creature becomes the owner of the Divine Sanctity and Happiness, all evils will disappear, and I will have the joy of seeing the creature happy, just as he came out of Our Creative Hands.”
V25-12/29/28 “…all the goods of the manifestations and Knowledges of My Divine Fiat that, like sacred deposit, I have deposited in you (Luisa), so that, more than splendid sun, it may shine its innumerable rays to illuminate the whole entire world.
Only knowledge leads to possession.
V35–4/6/38 “…it is the Knowledge that puts Us (Triune God) on the way to the creature, and prepares Our Place, forming the space in which to put Our Unheard-of Prodigies. It is Knowledge that forms the eyes to be able to view and appreciate Our Divine Wonders.
If there’s no concordance of ideas, culture, dispositions etc., the relation with God and our brother’s and sister’s is dissolved, weakened, and the “Our Father”, and more precisely the “On earth as it is in Heaven” cannot be lived or fulfilled.
V30-4/4/32 “…It is true that, humanly speaking, the creature, surrounded by evils as she is, cannot conceive yet how to Live in My Will and how Its Kingdom can be formed on earth; it is for her as if touching Heaven with her finger; but what is impossible for men, is possible to God…”
RESPONSIBILITIES & COMMITMENTS of the CHILDREN of the FAMILY OF LUISA
The Family of Luisa’s first task is to live with fidelity the reality of communion in a constant effort to develop an authentic community of brother’s and sister’s.
“The inner principle of that task, its permanent power and its final goal is love: without love the family is not a community of persons and, in the same way, without love the family cannot live, grow and perfect itself as a community of persons.” (Familiaris Consortio, Love as the Principle and Power of Communion, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
The children of the Family of Luisa live the exterior life but never lose sight of the starting point, which is interior life.
Great and common responsibility among all the children are:
– To live the spirituality of Luisa.
– To make a commitment to know the Divine Will well.
– To read the writings of Luisa, which is the only source of that knowledge.
– To be disposed to live this spirituality, always gradually and in its integrity.
– To be disposed and opened more and more to the Light that transmits this great Gift of God, remaining always aware of our nothingness.
V30–4/30/32 “…To Live in Our Will is a Gift, which Our Magnanimity wants to give to the creature; and with this Gift she will feel transformed…”
EXTERNAL ACTIVITY CONNECTED TO THE INTERIOR LIFE
There are responsibilities involving the Family of Luisa spread throughout the world. Everyone can cooperate in the Family of Luisa, but we must always let the life of the Divine Will flow, uniting Heaven and earth involving all our brothers and sisters in God. This represents the unity of the family life.
Every particular task of the Family of Luisa is an expressive and concrete actuation of that fundamental mission. We must therefore go deeper into the unique riches of the family’s mission and probe its contents, which are both manifold and unified.
“With love as its point of departure the four general tasks for the family are:
1) forming a community of persons;
2) serving life;
3) participating in the development of society;
4) sharing in the life and mission of the Church.
(Familiaris Consortio, Family Become What you Are, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
The Family of Luisa intends to walk along the ways of the world to spread the Truths of the Kingdom; and as it grows with the diffusion of the knowledge of the Divine Will, at the same time, it must get stronger in the unity of all its members, near and far. All is based on the life of prayer and in the union of wills in God the Trinity. The rest comes by itself. To live in the Divine Will is more an interior activity than an exterior one. We take as our model the Holy Family in Nazareth.
“…the love that animates the interpersonal relationships of the different members of the family constitutes the interior strength that shapes and animates the family communion and community. (Familiaris Consortio, The Broader Communion of the Family, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
52. To the extent in which the Christian family accepts the Gospel and matures in faith, it becomes an evangelizing community. Let us listen again to Paul VI: “The family, like the Church, ought to be a place where the Gospel is transmitted and from which the Gospel radiates. In a family which is conscious of this mission, all the members evangelize and are evangelized. (Familiaris Consortio, The Christian Family’s Ministry of Evangelization, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
“And now, at the end of my pastoral message, which is intended to draw everyone’s attention to the demanding yet fascinating roles of the Christian family, I wish to invoke the protection of the Holy Family of Nazareth.
Through God’s mysterious design, it was in that family that the Son of God spent long years of a hidden life. It is therefore the prototype and example for all Christian families. It was unique in the world. Its life was passed in anonymity and silence in a little town in Palestine. It underwent trials of poverty, persecution and exile. It glorified God in an incomparably exalted and pure way. And it will not fail to help Christian families-indeed, all the families in the world-to be faithful to their day-to-day duties, to bear the cares and tribulations of life, to be open and generous to the needs of others, and to fulfill with joy the plan of God in their regard. (Familiaris Consortio – The Future of Humanity Passes by Way of the Family,+Blessed Pope John Paul II)
“Now, you must know that for your Mama, for dear and sweet Jesus, and for Saint Joseph, the little house of Nazareth was a paradise. Being the Eternal Word, My dear Son possessed the Divine Will within Himself, of His own virtue; immense Seas of Light, of Sanctity, of infinite Joys and Beauties resided in that little Humanity. I possessed the Divine Will by Grace, and even though I could not embrace immensity, as did beloved Jesus – since He was God and Man, while I was always His finite creature – still, the Divine Fiat filled Me so much as to form Its Seas of Light, of Sanctity, of Love, of Beauties and of Happiness. And the Light that came from us, the Love, and all that a Divine Will can possess, were so great that Saint Joseph remained eclipsed, inundated, and lived from Our Reflections.
Dear child, in this house, the Kingdom of the Divine Will was in full force. Every little act of ours – working, starting the fire, preparing the food… – all were animated by the Supreme Volition, and were formed on the solidity of the Sanctity of pure Love.”
“…in this house of Nazareth, the Kingdom of the Divine Will was formed in your Mama and in the Humanity of My Son, to make of It a Gift for the human family, when it would dispose itself to receive the Good of this Kingdom.” (The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will – Day 25)
V29–5/31/31 “My daughter (Luisa), indeed the Kingdom of My Divine Will has existed upon earth, and therefore there is the sure hope that It will return again to Its full force. Our house of Nazareth was Its true Kingdom; however, We were without peoples.”
“Now, you must know that each creature is a Kingdom; therefore, one who lets the Divine Will reign within herself can be called a little Kingdom of the Supreme Fiat. So, she is a tiny little house of Nazareth that We have upon earth; and, though little, since Our Will is in her, reigning, Heaven is not closed for her; she observes the same laws of the Celestial Fatherland, she loves with the same love, feeds herself with the foods from up there, and is incorporated into the Kingdom of Our interminable regions. Now, in order to form the great Kingdom of Our Will upon earth, first We will make the many tiny little houses of Nazareth—that is, the souls who will want to know It in order to let It reign within themselves. I, Myself, and the Sovereign Queen, will be at the head of these tiny little houses, because, We having been the first to possess this Kingdom on earth, it is Our right, that We will not surrender to anyone, to be the directors of them. Then, with these tiny little houses, repeaters of Our house of Nazareth, We will form many little states of Ours, many provinces, that, after they have been formed well, and ordered like many little Kingdoms of Our Will, will fuse together and will form one single Kingdom and one great people.”
Many little Famlies of Luisa contribute to strengthen the spirituality and the commitment of wills in each individual member of the family, towards God as well as others.
“…the love that animates the interpersonal relationships of the different members of the family constitutes the interior strength that shapes and animates the family communion and community.” (Familiaris Consortio, The Broader Communion of the Family, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
“The Christian family constitutes a specific revelation and realization of ecclesial communion, and for this reason too it can and should be called “the domestic Church.”(58) (Familiaris Consortio, The Broader Communion of the Family, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
Those who live with constant commitment and sincerity of heart acquire a spirit of joyful charity and submission which, together with humility, form that vacuum within oneself, allowing God to fill it with His Sanctity: this means letting the Divine Will reign.
The spirit of service and charity must prevail, always keeping in mind the sweetness of the service of Jesus with the apostles and all other souls.
“The Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve” (Matthew 20:28)
“The greatest one among you must be like the youngest, and the leader must be like the servant” (Luke 22:26)
We pray that the Lord will call in this Family of Luisa associated in His Will, little souls like Luisa, simple souls, empty of human wisdom but rich in His Divine Wisdom.
Let us give freely what we have received, because this Kingdom of God is coming soon!
“Go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in Heaven; then come and follow me.” (Matthew 19:21)
Let us ponder well the meaning and all the aspects of this Family of Luisa: its importance, need for commitment, pure disposition, personal disinterest, the tasks relative to the exterior life, and also the international vision. So, we can feel the hand of God extending over the whole world to enrich humanity with the Gift of His Most Holy Will.
“The spiritual communion between Christian families, rooted in a common faith and hope and given life by love, constitutes an inner energy that generates, spreads and develops justice, reconciliation, fraternity and peace among human beings. Insofar as it is a “small- scale Church,” the Christian family is called upon, like the “large- scale Church,” to be a sign of unity for the world and in this way to exercise its prophetic role by bearing witness to the Kingdom and peace of Christ, towards which the whole world is journeying.” (Familiaris Consortio, For a New International Order, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
V30–4/30/32 “…To live in Our Will is a Gift…This Gift was given to man at the beginning if his creation, but man, ungrateful, threw it back to Us by doing his will. Now that he disposes himself to do Our Will, he is preparing himself to receive again this Gift so great and infinite. Our knowledge of the Fiat will help and prepare the creature in a surprising way to receive this gift; and all that she has not obtained until now, she will be able to obtain tomorrow…”
We cannot remain passive in the face of this Gift. It is necessary to ponder the choice of God and His specific call to each and every one of us. It is really a matter of defending and securing the plan of God, established since the foundation of the world.
Our miseries and limitations must not suffocate the so many graces received. The darkness of our human will must not obscure the Light emanated by the Divine Will, and cannot stop the course of our self-offering.
Even Luisa, while reflecting upon the great Mission that Jesus was gradually manifesting to Her, often said:
V13–1/17/21 “Lord, You know how bad and incapable I am…; and Jesus: “The greater is the Work I want to do, the more I choose miserable, poor, ignorant souls, with no outward appearance.”
She was a creature like us. She was chosen from a common birth so that she could be an accessible model to be imitated, only and always for the glory of the Kingdom of God “on earth as it is in Heaven”.
V23–11/10/27 “The third model (in Creation) must be formed by the one who must make the Kingdom of My Will return. Therefore, your duties (Luisa) are great; on your models (Luisa) will all those of others be modeled. So, let the Life of My Divine Will flow in all your acts, that It may administer to you everything that is needed. In this way, everything will go well, and your Jesus will be together with you (Luisa), to make you (Luisa) execute His Divine models well.”
So, we can call the family of Luisa, “The Family of Luisa of the united wills”, fully disposed to the Gift received from God, and with the commitment and freedom to Live our will in Him.
Linked with Luisa, we are involved in the coming of the Kingdom, by witnessing with our lives and letting God reign and reside within our souls. This is why it is necessary to live in the Family of Luisa. This internal communion will hold together the Family of Luisa of the Kingdom and the Apostles of the Kingdom. Little by little, the Family of Luisa will become the flame shining in the darkness, to show the way of peace and happiness to others, which leads to the possession of the Kingdom of the Divine Will on earth as it is in Heaven.
“And since in God’s plan it has been established as an “intimate community of life and love,”(44) the family has the mission to become more and more what it is, that is to say, a community of life and love, in an effort that will find fulfillment, as will everything created and redeemed, in the Kingdom of God. Looking at it in such a way as to reach its very roots, we must say that the essence and role of the family are in the final analysis specified by love. Hence the family has the mission to guard, reveal and communicate love, and this is a living reflection of and a real sharing in God’s love for humanity and the love of Christ the Lord for the Church His bride.” (Familiaris Consortio, Family Become What you Are, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
“Among the fundamental tasks of the Christian family is its ecclesial task: the family is placed at the service of the building up of the Kingdom of God in history by participating in the life and mission of the Church.” (49) (Familiaris Consortio, The Family, Within the Mystery of the Church, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
“Particularly today, the Christian family has a special vocation to witness to the paschal covenant of Christ by constantly radiating the joy of love and the certainty of the hope for which it must give an account: “The Christian family loudly proclaims both the present virtues of the Kingdom of God and the hope of a blessed life to come.”(125) (Familiaris Consortio, The Christian Family’s Ministry of Evangelization, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
Animated in its own inner life by missionary zeal, the Church of the home is also called to be a luminous sign of the presence of Christ and of His love for those who are “far away,” for families who do not yet believe, and for those Christian families who no longer live in accordance with the faith that they once received. The Christian family is called to enlighten “by its example and its witness…those who seek the truth.”(133) (Familiaris Consortio, To Preach the Gospel to the Whole Creation, +Blessed Pope John Paul II)
V30-5/8/32 “Oh, man, go back into yourself, call back in you that Will which you rejected; It wants to return to destroy all your evils; and if you invite It, It is ready to take possession and form Its Kingdom within you; Its dominion of peace, happiness, glory and victory, for me and for you. Please, do not choose to be slave any more, or to live in the maze of your evils and miseries; remember that I did not created you so, rather, I created you king of yourself, king of all. Therefore, call My Will as your life, and It will make you know your nobility and the height of the place in which you were placed by God. Oh, how happy you will be, and how happy you will make your Creator.”
V20-11/27/26 “Now, My daughter, in order to be daughter of My Will, you (Luisa) have been generated in the Divine Will; in It you have been formed, and, in forming you, the light, the love of My Will, more than blood, has grafted in you Its ways, Its attitude, Its operating, making you embrace everyone and everything. This is so true that, you being a birth from It, It calls you now ‘newborn of My Will,’ now Its “little daughter.’
Now, only one (Luisa) who has been generated by It (The Divine Will) can generate the children of My Will; therefore, you (Luisa) will be the mother of the generation of Its children.”
ACT OF THANKSGIVING
Lord Jesus, with our souls full of gratitude, we want to thank You for the immense gifts
You bestowed on this Family of Luisa, associated in Your Most Holy Divine Will.
Your eyes rested on us and You called us.
Thank You Jesus, for having confirmed our Family of Luisa with Your special blessing. Please, make this little family follow You, within the great family of the Holy Church,
with loyalty and disposition, according to Your Divine Plan.
O Lord, Thank You for Luisa, Your Little Daughter of the Divine Will.
You filled her with so many gifts and blessings; You chose her as Messenger of the Divine Will, and now, through her, You choose us too, to follow her in the Light of the
“Fiat Voluntas Tua”.
Praise to You, Father, for having created us; to You, Son, for having redeemed us;
And to You, Holy Spirit, for our Sanctification.
Please, let Your Sanctifying work continue within our souls, until the last Fiat. Amen.
