DIVINE WILL SNIPPET

Dear Divine Will Family,
I think it will be good for us to focus on Jesus’ Humanity for a few days. This is a two-part Snippet. I will send the other part out tomorrow, Wednesday, the 27th.
I also want to begin sending some information next week about San Sebastian de Garabandal, the apparitions, the warnings and the prophecies. I think it may help some of us understand better what is going on in the world today. The climate is tough all over and could get a lot tougher, but only God knows for sure what is going on and if it will continue, or turn back. We can only look at the information we have to try to understand where we are in human history.
What I believe is most important at this time is focusing on living in the Will of God as deeply, as constantly, and as well as we can humanly do so with the help of our Heavenly Mother and Jesus!
By understanding the Humanity of Jesus and how we must become another humanity for Him, we can understand better how to live in His Divine Will in a more profound way and help others to understand as well.
May God bless, protect and keep all of you safe and healthy! We love of you so much and keep each of you in our daily prayers! Please keep us in yours!
PS: Most of you probably know that my wonderful brother did not make it. He died on January 6th, Feast of the Epiphany. I like to think that Jesus wanted Fred as a gift for Himself, for Fred was a true gift to all who knew him and loved him so very much. The Priest during the Funeral Mass said, “If I have ever met a saint, it was Fred Adams!” I agree 100%.
May the Will of the Father, Made Known in the Son, Through the Power of the Holy Ghost, Reign in me Through Mary in every act I do this day and in every act for the rest of my life!
O, Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, through and in the Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart of my Heavenly Mother, I enter into the very Centre of Your Heart and gathering all souls from the first to the last, I pray: In Your great mercy forgive our sinfulness, heal our brokenness and renew our hearts in the faith, peace, love and joy of Your Kingdom that we may all be one in You, as He is in You and You are in Him.
Holy Mother, please guide my thoughts, my tongue and my heart that all will be for the glory of my Father… and for His Kingdom to come to dwell in all hearts, so that His Will will be done on earth as It is done in Heaven!
If we are reading and studying Luisa’s volumes as we should, then what I am about to reveal is nothing new….but I pray it will be the impetus to propel you forward to study harder, and create within your soul a new ardor to re-animate you to do your rounds and your acts always and constantly in the Divine Will! And to always be attentive to God’s desire to reign in your most precious souls and what that means!
I would like to quote a something from the New Testament first:
St. Paul wrote to the Colossians, 1:12 – 20: “Brothers and sisters, let us give thanks to the Father, who has made you fit to share in the inheritance of the holy ones in light. He delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us to the Kingdom of His Beloved Son, in Whom we have [the fullness] of Redemption and forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For in Him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the Church. He is the beginning, the firstborn of the dead that in all things He Himself might be preeminent. For in Him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through Him to reconcile all things for Him, making peace by the blood of His Cross through Him, whether those on earth or those in Heaven.”
Also Jesus said, “No one comes to the Father except through ME!”
This is about the Most Holy Humanity of Jesus and the importance of His Humanity in our Life in the Divine Will….and it is about our own humanity as well. But first we have to realize that if the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word, had not agreed to become man, to take on our human nature, NO ONE, not even Adam, could have lived in the Divine Will. That alone tells us the great importance of Jesus’ Humanity in our life in the Divine Will….but there is so much more! In fact, it would be impossible to live this Life without truly becoming another humanity for Jesus here on earth. And it seems that, at this time in human history, it is always through the Cross that we have to accomplish this. But, of course, always in and though Jesus with Mary, Who is most important also as our help and our aid in this journey.
Also, and this next fact is a given I know, but it became so much more real to me and filled my heart with such awe during my research, that I couldn’t help but add something about it…and that is the fact that when it comes to Jesus’ Humanity and His Heart….we are talking about one and the same thing! So, I will start with a quote about Jesus’ Heart that melted mine.
Jesus said, “And if I see you cry, I cry with you, because My Own Will makes Me inseparable from the one who lives in It, and I feel her sorrows more than if they were My own. Indeed, My Own Will living in the soul brings forth My Humanity in the one who suffers, to make My Humanity repeat Its life so that It lives again on earth. And O what divine prodigies take place! New currents open up between Heaven and earth for the new life of sorrows that your Jesus experiences in His creature. And while My Heart is human, It is also divine. It possesses the sweetest tenderness. And the tender attractions and powers of My Heart are so great and so many that when I see how the one I love suffers, My tender love liquefies My Heart, and It pours itself out over the heart of my beloved creature and over all of her sorrows.”
Now, let’s get into what else Jesus’ says about His Most Holy Humanity and the importance of It in living this Life to which He has called all of us!
He says: “And I, your Jesus have undertaken the duty of forming a soul entirely of My Will—because you must know that I am the Divine Director of My Fiat in man. And when I see him disposed to do My Will in everything, in every act that he does, then I set Myself to do the work of preparation. Suppose that you want to do an act of love: I immediately put Myself to work. I place My breath in that act; I add a dose of My love; I embellish the act with the varied beauty that My Fiat contains. And then, as Divine Administrator of My Will, I commit My Divine Will to that act of love, so that it is not recognized as a human act, but rather as an act of love, as if it had come forth from the center of My Divinity.
“I must find Myself in each of man’s acts—as your Jesus, as Master and Possessor of My Divine Will. I would not be the director of My Will in man, if I did not find the sanctity, the purity, and the love of My Humanity in his act. That is why I want to find the soul free of any cloud that might cast a shadow over My Divine Will. So, be attentive—and don’t obstruct the work that I want to do in your soul.”
It’s all about love! This Life to which we are all called is about the Real Life of God reigning in our souls. Who is God? He is Love!! There’s no getting around it…He is Love and I don’t see how He can reign in a soul who does not love Him enough to give up their human will for His Divine Will? Can you?
Doing this research has brought all this back to me and I believe it was the hand of God which did this. He screams at us, He yells at us. He is a true Father trying to get us back on the right track.
This research also brought out a lot about ‘the love of suffering,’ which as we all understand as children of the Divine Will, our legitimate Parents, being very loving parents, don’t want to see their children suffering. But, if we are very loving children, we would want to obey and do what our parents ask of us, right? In either case, it seems to me, that this involves sacrifices and sufferings of all sorts. I want someone to tell me that it is easy to give up your own will? To try and do everything in a holy and attentive manner, always with the constant thought of God and accomplishing everything in and with His Will? Have you found it easy to be completely attentive with no distractions?
If you read the writings and really listen to what Jesus is asking of us…it is exactly that! Do everything without distractions and always with the thought of Jesus in every act. We are Americans….we have a reputation, you know! We are naturally spoiled to the degree that some of us can become what they call an “ugly American.” I met them when I lived in Italy…I never understood what ugly American meant until I live in Italy and met them personally! I was so overwhelmed with joy at being able to live there, that I would have licked the floors clean to stay there. Complain? Not in the whole world would it have even cross my mind at that time! But mostly that is all I heard from the Americans arriving in San Giovanni Rotundo and even in Corato! They didn’t like the hotels, the food was not to their liking…it was too cold, it was too hot…there was always something to complain about….and here they were in the holiest of cities…Corato! And San Giovanni Rotundo!!
In my heart, I know that I have a lot of sacrificing and suffering to do to bring my will under my dominion; to not allow it to run free with all kinds of preferences, desires, wishes and wants! We have to have dominion over our own wills…we must get rid of self-love in all forms before God can reign fully in our souls.
Listen to what Jesus says about self-love:
As Jesus explains: “My daughter, bitter feelings, oppressions and all that does not involve My Will take up space in your soul. And My Divine Will does not feel free to spread Its light—nor can It make Its life rise up with Its creative and vivifying power in every particle and recess of your soul. It feels surrounded as if by clouds and if the Sun is there, the clouds, placing themselves between Sun and earth, impede the sun’s rays from falling with the fullness of their light to brighten the earth. And, because of this, the Sun of My Divine Will feels blocked by the clouds of bitterness and oppression that hinder Its light from reaching into the depths of the soul—even into its smallest recesses. And they hinder Me also from being able to say: “Everything is given by My Will; everything belongs to Me; everything is Mine.”
Do you feel a creative and vivifying power in your soul?
It seems very important for us to hear what else Jesus says about this subject:
Then he added in a gentler tone: “My daughter, the poor things—they are not used to walking in the luminous fields of My Divine Will—so it is no wonder that their minds are blinded by the light. But if they accustom themselves to looking at the light, they will see clearly that only My love could have achieved so much. And as I dearly love for My Divine Will to be known so that it might reign, I wanted to be exuberant in the outpouring of the love that I bore in My Heart. Indeed, all that I have done with you can be called a prelude to what I will do for those who let themselves be ruled by My Fiat! But I tell you that all those who have something to say about My Humanity on earth, but who do not surrender in faith to the Holiness of My works shall remain empty of the blessing that I came to bestow on everyone—and they shall remain outside of My works. And this is what will become of those who—besides speaking of the ”how,” ”the way,” and the ”what” of all that I have said—still do not surrender to it: They too shall remain empty and outside of the blessings that I want to bestow on everyone with so much love.”
We must surrender our wills to God for Him to be able to work in our souls to bring them to the state of holiness to which He desires so very much!
To be continued!!
