FUSING ONESELF IN THE DIVINE WILL
Dear Divine Will Family,
Wow, did I learn a lot from some of the Divine Will family about Baptism…and from the Volumes, and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. There is always hope with the Creator we have….always loving and merciful, never losing any soul if at all possible not to! With God all things are possible!
One reader suggested that grandparents, who have grandchildren whose parents are away from the Church can suggest to the parents that they get the children Baptized and help raising them in the Faith by teaching them and taking them to Mass! And the grandparents only need one parents permission to Baptize all the children! What loving parent would not want their children raised to believe in a most loving and merciful God and be saved?
Here are a few other things I found while researching the subject of Baptism:
The doctrine of original sin is that “in” Adam all have sinned. This parallels the doctrine of justification that “in” Christ all are righteous. Many Catholics do not fully understand or appreciate the importance of this parallel and how it weaves through much of Catholic teaching.
Pope Benedict XVI: April 2007
The netherworld of limbo, long speculated in Roman Catholic teaching as the destination of babies who die unbaptized, has been replaced with the “prayerful hope” that they reach heaven. Pope Benedict XVI signed a theological report, years in the making, that effectively demoted limbo, a place neither in heaven nor in hell, where unbaptized babies would not be in communion with God but would nonetheless enjoy eternal happiness.
It stressed, however, that “these are reasons for prayerful hope, rather than grounds for sure knowledge.”
Ladaria said no one could know for certain what becomes of unbaptized babies since Scripture is largely silent on the matter.
St Thomas Aquinas described the “limbo of children” as an “eternal state of natural joy” in which unbaptized children were unaware of the greater joy of Heaven.
This was no dismissal or demotion of limbo: it had always been a valid opinion and that’s exactly where the commission left it. And today, despite the compelling case for the alternative scenario made by the commission, limbo itself remains an opinion worth holding and defending.
Then I remembered what Jesus told Luisa that there is not a soul He created that when they take their last breath that He appears to them and asked them if they will accept this last breath as His Will and those who say yes are saved, and those who say no are not.
He did not say He excluded babies….in fact, He said EVERY soul He creates!
So, I choose to leave everything about this subject in the hands of God since who can know the mind of God??? Certainly not me!!
I know the subject today is fusing, but I wanted to share this with you because I believe it is most important that we understand what we can do and now do.
Now we can get to fusing oneself in the Divine Will, another very important subject. Someone was a little confused, which made me research it a little for her and I thought this would be a good subject for everyone.
If you are at all confused about fusing yourself in the Divine Will, think of the Mississippi River, it is one of the largest rivers in America….the smaller Ohio River flows into the Mississippi River….being smaller, it is lost in the Mississippi River and begins doing what the Mississippi River does and going where the Mississippi River goes!
This is the same with our little will fusing into the Will of God! Once we fuse ourselves in the Divine Will, we begin immediately doing what God does and with our fiat at every minute, He begins doing what we do, too! But without our little fiats, nothing holy can happen. We cannot stay in the Divine Will without our little fiat in every circumstance and in every minute of the day.
“O Sweet Jesus, I desire to fuse my will into your Divine Will so that I can do all that You are doing in the universe and in all souls and You can do with me all that You Will for me this day! I give You my fiat at every minute for the Glory of the Father, for His Kingdom to come and for the salvation of every soul, past, present and future!”
I hope this helps those who are confused.
We love you all so very much and keep each of you in our daily prayers! May God allow us to fuse in His Will and keep us faithfully in It each and every day!
The Twenty-Four Hours of the Passion of Our Lord, Jesus Christ
“When the soul fuses herself in Him, she does her current acts with those of Jesus; and the good Lord, feeling so attracted to this soul, does with her whatever she is doing, thereby transforming the creature’s work into a divine work. All this is the effect of the goodness of God, which considers everything and rewards everything, even the smallest act in the Will of God so that the creature is not cheated in anything.”
I want to fuse my eyes with Yours to share your pain, to cry with You, and to make reparation to You for the distracted glances of all creatures.
January 4, 1925
The most important act of one’s life. How the whole of Heaven goes to meet the soul who fuses herself in the Divine Will. The noble martyrdom of the soul.
Having completed my whole day, I was thinking to myself: ‘What else is left for me to do?’ And in my interior, I heard, being said to me:
“You have to do the most important thing – your last act of fusing yourself in the Divine Will.” So, according to my usual way, I began to fuse all my poor being in the Supreme Will; and while I was doing this, it seemed to me that the Heavens were opening, and I was going to meet the whole Celestial Court, and all of Heaven was coming toward me. And my sweet Jesus told me:
“My daughter, fusing yourself in my Will is the most solemn, the greatest, the most important act of your whole life. To fuse yourself in my Will is to enter the sphere of eternity, to embrace It, to kiss It, and to receive the deposit of the goods which the Eternal Will contains. Even more, as the soul fuses herself in the Supreme Volition, all go to meet her, in order to deposit in her everything they have. The Angels, the Saints, the very Divinity – they all deposit, knowing that they are depositing in that same Will in which everything is safe. Even more, in receiving these goods, with her acts in the Divine Will the soul multiplies them and gives back double glory and honor to the whole of Heaven. So, by fusing yourself in my Will you put Heaven and earth in motion; it is a new feast for the whole Empyreum. And since to fuse oneself in my Will is to love and to give for all and for each one, without excluding anyone, in my goodness, so as not to let Myself be surpassed in love by the creature, I place in her the goods of all, and all possible goods which I contain within Me. Nor can there be lack of space in which to place all goods, because my Will is immense, and lends Itself to receiving everything. If you knew what you do and what happens when you fuse yourself in my Will, you would burn with the desire to fuse yourself continuously.”
Then afterwards, I was thinking about whether I had to write what is written above, or not. I did not see it as necessary, or as an important thing; more so since obedience had not given me any command to do it. And my sweet Jesus, moving in my interior, told me:
“My daughter, how can it not be important to make known that fusing oneself in my Will is to live in It? The soul who fuses herself in my Will receives, as though in deposit, all my divine and eternal goods. The very Saints compete among themselves in order to deposit their merits in the soul fused in my Will, because they feel in her the glory, the power of my Will, and they feel glorified in a divine manner by the littleness of the creature. Listen, my daughter, to live in my Will surpasses even martyrdom in merit. Martyrdom kills the body but living in my Will is like a divine hand that kills one’s will and gives one the nobility of a divine martyrdom. And every time the soul decides to live in my Will, my Volition prepares the blow in order to kill the human will and forms the noble martyrdom of the soul. In fact, human will and Divine Will do not bond together – one has to give the place to the Other, and the human will must content itself with remaining extinguished under the power of the Divine Will. So, every time you dispose yourself to live in my Volition, you dispose yourself to undergo the martyrdom of your will. See, then, what it means to fuse oneself in my Will: it is to be the continuous martyr of my Supreme Will. And you think it is trivial, or something unimportant?”
