IN IMMENSE GRATITUDE FOR THE
HOLY BODY AND BLOOD OF OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST
My dear Divine Will Family,
May we celebrate this enormous Gift of the True Body and Blood of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, given to us from the Triune God with the aide of our Heavenly Mother, Mary! What a Gift it is! And just as being a Catholic is such a great Gift from God! If we were not Catholic, we could not receive the Eucharist, and would be as a dead log lying in the woods. How many Gifts have we been privileged to receive from our Heavenly Father through His Most Beloved Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and through the intercession of our Heavenly Mother, Mary!
We would not have received any of these Gifts if not for them!
May we be forever grateful and show our gratitude to Them every minute of the day from now until the end of our lives! It makes me weep with gratitude….for who are we that we deserve to receive such Gifts….and especially, the Gift of Living in the Holy Will of God!! The only way to really show our gratitude is to live this Gift to the very best of our ability for the glory of Our Father, for His Kingdom to come and for the salvation and sanctification of all souls!! May it be so! Amen!
We love you all so much and keep each of you in our prayers. May God fill each of you to the full with the Life of His Holy Will in your most precious souls!
PS: I have added a prayer below the readings that hopefully will help some of you.

How the soul in the Divine Will can become a living Eucharist.
I was continuing in my usual state and suffering greatly because of the absence of Jesus. Finally, after much suffering He came and showed Himself to me in my interior. It seemed to me as if I were just a cloak for Jesus. Then, breaking the silence, He told me: “My daughter, you, too, can form hosts and consecrate them mystically. Do you see the clothes that cover Me in the Sacrament? They are the accidents of the bread from which the Host is made. The Life that lives in this Host is my Body, my Blood and my Divinity. My supreme Will is the act which contains this Life. This Will provides the Love, reparation, immolation and all the rest that I do in the Sacrament. The Sacrament never separates from my Volition. Nothing comes forth from Me that is not directed by my Volition.
This is how you, too, can form a Host. The host is material and totally human; you too have a material body and a human will. This body and will of yours—as long as you keep them pure, upright and far from the least shadow of sin—are the accidents, the veil needed to consecrate Me and make Me live hidden in you. But this is not enough; it would be like the host without the consecration—my Life is needed. My Life is composed of Sanctity, Love, Wisdom, Power, and so on, but the engine behind them is my Will. So, after you prepare the host, you must make your will die in it; you must cook it well, so that it may not rise again. Then you must let my Will permeate your whole being; and my Will, which contains my whole Life, will form the true and perfect consecration. That is why there will no longer be life for human thought, but only for the thought of my Volition, which will consecrate my Wisdom within your mind; no more life for what is human—weakness and inconstancy—because my Will will form the consecration of the Divine Life, of fortitude, of firmness, and of all that I am. So, each time you let your will flow into Mine, I will renew the consecration of your desires, and of all that you are and all that you can do. I will continue my Life in you as if in a living Host—not a dead one, like the hosts without Me.
“But that is not all. In the consecrated Hosts, in the pyxes, in the Tabernacles, everything is dead–mute. I do not receive the sensitivity of a heartbeat, nor a single burst of love in return for my great love. If I didn’t wait for hearts to give Myself to them, I would be very unhappy. I would remain defrauded of my Love, and my Sacramental Life would have no purpose. Though I tolerate this in the Tabernacles, I will not tolerate it in my living Hosts. In the Sacrament I want to be fed with my own food. The soul will take possession of my Will, my Love, my prayers, my reparations, and my sacrifices; she will give them to Me as if they were her own things, and I will nourish Myself. The soul will unite with Me, pricking up her ears to hear what I am doing, and to do it with Me. In this way, as she keeps repeating my own acts, she will give Me her food, and I will be happy. Only in these living Hosts will I find compensation for my loneliness, my starvation and all that I suffer in the Tabernacles.

The soul must rest in Jesus.
Finding myself in my usual state, I felt a great longing for Jesus, to rest on Him. And my sweet Jesus came and said to me: “My daughter, you can depend entirely on Me. You will find Me always ready—I will never forsake you. Indeed, the more you depend on Me, the more I will pour Myself into you. And since many times I feel the need to lean on someone, I will come to you and I will rest on you, using my own support, which I have formed in you. And when I see that you despise the help of creatures, I will love you twice as much–and I will double the help that I give to you.”
Then He added: “When a soul does everything to please Me, to love Me, and to live entirely by my Will, she becomes like a member of my Body; and I glory in such members as if they were my own. But if a soul does not do everything to please me, she becomes like a limb torn from my Body, which gives Me pain—and not only Me, but herself and her neighbors also. A sickly limb of this kind spews out pus, which infects and dries up even the good that she does.”
And we also want to show our immense gratitude to our Heavenly Mother for Her part in instituting the Holy Eucharist!
Now, you ought to know that when I instituted the Sacrament of the Eucharist, Her (Mary’s) Divine Fiat joined together with Mine, and together We pronounced the Fiat whereby the bread and wine would be transubstantiated into My Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. Ah, just as I had wanted Her Fiat in My Conception, so I wanted it in this solemn Act that began My sacramental life. Who would have had the heart to set My Mama aside in an Act in which My love expressed outpourings so exuberant that it seems incredible? Rather, not only was She united with Me, but I made her the Queen of the love of My sacramental life. And, with the love of My true Mother, She again offered Me her womb, her beautiful soul, to always defend and make reparation to Me for the horrendous ingratitude and enormous sacrileges that I would, alas, receive in this sacrament of love.
Prayer to live in the Divine Will
O Divine Will
O Divine Will, I desire nothing but to abandon all my life in You! I desire nothing more than to pour my heart, mind, soul and will into You – to be totally absorbed by You, reserving nothing for myself!
I ask You to re-order my soul, my will, my mind, my heart – that they be totally dedicated and focused on living deeply and fully in Your Holy Will.
I ask You to please make my soul a place pleasing to You – a place with You can reign and where You can rest.
O Divine Will, I desire to be what You wish me to be..to be made divine for Your glory with the pure intentions of loving You divinely.
I wish to open my soul totally to You, for You to possess me fully and for me to possess You completely!
I desire for You to pour all Your Treasures into me, to deify me so that You may receive the joy and glory of a soul living solely for You and loving only You.
I renounce my life for You, I renounce all earthly things for You, I renounce all things that distract me, that keep me in the human order!
I love You, my God, my Father, the Author of my life for as long as You have been God and for as long as You will be God, forever and without end, with Your Will and with Your Love, I love You! Amen!
