“I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION!”
HAPPY FEAST OF OUR LADY OF LOURDES!
Dear Divine Will Family,
This is one of my favorite Feast Days. I hope everyone is familiar with St. Maximilian Kolbe. Of course, there is no arguing that the “Book of Heaven” contains the most beautiful and greatest writings to help us understand the magnificence of Our Heavenly Mother of any books I have ever read, but St. Maximilian has some very beautiful and powerful writings as well on Our Lady and Her Spouse, the Holy Ghost, and the power that the Most Holy Trinity bestowed on Her! If you have a chance, please find some of his books on Our Lady and read them. You won’t regret it. I would like to share just a few concepts from his book, “Will to Love!”
“The Holy Spirit does not act except through the Immaculata, His spouse. Hence, She is the Mediatrix of all the graces of the Holy Spirit.
“Every grace is dispensed by the Father through His Incarnate Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit dwelling in the Immaculata – through the Immaculata herself.
“This grace in the Immaculata and through Her, forms souls in the image of the first-born God-Man.
“She is not like a mail-carrier. She does not receive graces from God for an appointed purpose so that she might use them in one way or another. The Immaculate Virgin receives graces from God for Her own exclusive property and she dispenses them to us how she wills, to whom she wills, and inasmuch as she wills, for these are Her own. Here, finally, do we see how holy and great God made his Blessed Mother, and how much we should honor Her.”
The extract from the “Book of Heaven” is just as powerful and magnificent as the above writings, and reveals so much more of the true Sanctity, Greatness and Power of our Heavenly Mother! And She is our Mother, which is the name She loves the most….Mother!
How grateful should we be towards our Heavenly Father for giving us such a humble, beautiful, loving and very powerful Heavenly Mother! IMMENSELY!!!
I pray your Feast Day is beautiful and wonderful and being spent in a special way with your Heavenly Mother! We love all of you so much and keep each of you in our daily prayers. Please keep us in yours. May Our Heavenly Mother bless you and your family in a very special way on this most awesome Feast Day of Hers!

On the Immaculate Conception.
I was thinking about the great portent of the Immaculate Conception of my Queen and Celestial Mama, and in my interior, I heard Him say:
“My daughter, the ImmaculateCconception of My beloved Mama was prodigious and all marvelous; so much so, that Heaven and earth were astonished and made feast. All Three Divine Persons competed among Themselves: the Father poured out an immense sea of power; I, the Son, poured out an infinite sea of wisdom, and the Holy Spirit, an immense sea of eternal love, which, merging into one, formed one single sea; and in the middle of this sea the Conception of this Virgin was formed, chosen among the chosen. So, the Divinity administered the substance of this Conception, and this sea was not only the center of life of this admirable and singular creature, but it remained around Her – not only to keep Her defended from anything which might shadow Her, but to give Her, in every instant, new beauties, new graces, power, wisdom, love, privileges, etc.
So, Her little nature was Conceived in the center of this sea, and was formed and grew under the influence of these divine waves; so much so, that as soon as this noble and singular creature was formed, the Divinity did not want to wait as It usually does with other creatures – It wanted Her embraces, the return of Her love, Her kisses, and to enjoy Her innocent smiles. Therefore, as soon as Her Conception was formed, I gave Her the use of reason, I endowed Her with all sciences, I made Her aware of Our joys and Our sorrows with regard to Creation. Even from the maternal womb, She would come to Heaven, at the foot of Our Throne, to give Us Her embraces, the return of Her love, Her tender kisses; and throwing Herself into Our arms, She would smile at Us with such delight of gratitude and thanksgiving as to snatch Our smiles. Oh! how beautiful it was to see this innocent and privileged creature, enriched with all the divine qualities, coming into Our midst, all love, all trust, without fear. In fact, sin alone is what puts distance between Creator and creature, breaking love, dissolving trust, and striking fear.
So, She would come into Our midst as Queen who, with Her love, given by Us, would dominate Us, enrapture Us, put Us in feast, and capture yet more love. And We would let Her do it, enjoying the love that enraptured Us, and constituting Her Queen of Heaven and earth. Heaven and earth exulted and made feast together with Us, having their Queen after so many centuries. The sun smiled in its light, and considered itself fortunate in having to serve its Queen by giving Her light. The heavens, the stars, and the whole universe smiled with joy and made feast, because they were to delight their Queen, showing Her the harmony of the spheres and of their beauty.
The plants smiled, which were to nourish their Queen; and the earth too, smiled and felt ennobled in having to provide the residence for its Empress and to be trodden by Her steps.
Only hell cried and felt itself losing strength because of the dominion of this Sovereign Lady. But do you know what was the first act which this Celestial Creature did when She found Herself before Our throne for the first time? She recognized that all the evil of man had been the split between his will and that of his Creator; She trembled, and with no delay She bound Her will to the foot of my throne, without even wanting to know it. And my Will bound Itself to Her and constituted Itself the center of Her life, so much so, that all currents, all relations, all communications opened between Her and Us, and there was no secret which We did not entrust to Her. This, indeed, was the most beautiful, the greatest, the most heroic act She did – to lay down Her will at Our feet; an act which made Us, as though enraptured, constitute Her Queen of all.
Do you see, then, what it means to bind oneself to my Will and to not know one’s own? The second act was to offer Herself for any sacrifice for love of Us. The third, to render Us the honor and the glory of the whole Creation, which man had taken away from Us by doing his own will. And even from the maternal womb She cried for love of Us, in seeing Us offended; and She cried with sorrow over guilty man. Oh! how these innocent tears moved Us, and hastened the longed for Redemption!
This Queen dominated Us, bound Us, and snatched infinite graces from Us. She made Us incline so much toward mankind, that We could not resist, nor did We know how to resist Her repeated petitions. But whence came to Her so much power, and so much influence over the very Divinity? Ah! you have understood: it was the power of Our Will acting in Her, which, while dominating Her, rendered Her dominator of God Himself. And besides, how could We resist so innocent a creature, possessed by the power and sanctity of Our Will? It would be as though resisting Ourselves. We could see Our divine qualities in Her. The reflections of Our sanctity, the reflections of the divine ways, of Our love, of Our power, etc., poured over Her like waves; as well as Our Will, which was Her center, drawing all the reflections of Our divine qualities, and making Itself crown and defense of the Divinity dwelling within Her.
If this Immaculate Virgin had not had the Divine Will as center of life, all the other prerogatives and privileges with which We so enriched Her would have been, in comparison, an absolute nothing. This is what confirmed and preserved for Her so many privileges; even more, It multiplied new ones in every instant. Here, then, is the reason why We constituted Her Queen of all; because when We operate, We do it with reason, wisdom and justice: She never gave life to Her human will, but Our Will was always intact in Her. How could We say to another creature: ‘You are Queen of the heavens, of the sun, of the stars, etc.’, if instead of having Our Will as dominion, she was dominated by her human will? All of the elements, the heavens, the sun, the earth, would have withdrawn from the regime and dominion of this creature. All would have cried out in their mute language: ‘We do not want her, we are superior to her, because we have never withdrawn from your eternal Volition – as You created us, so we are’.
So would the sun have cried out with its light, the stars with their glittering, the sea with its waves, and everything else. On the contrary, as soon as they all felt the dominion of this excelling Virgin who, almost as their sister, never wanted to know Her own will, but only That of God, not only did they make feast, but they felt honored to have their Queen, and they ran around Her to form Her cortege and to pay honor to Her – the moon, by placing itself as footstool at Her feet; the stars as crown, the sun as diadem, the Angels as servants, and men as though in waiting. Everyone – everyone paid Her honor and rendered their dominion to Her. There is no honor and glory which cannot be given to our Will – whether acting within Us, in Its own center, or dwelling in the creature.
But do you know what was the first act which this noble Queen did when, coming out of the maternal womb, She opened Her eyes to the light of this low world? As She was born, the Angels sang lullabies to the Celestial Baby, and She remained enraptured; Her beautiful soul went out of Her little body, accompanied by angelic cohorts, and went around Heaven and earth, gathering all the love that God had spread throughout the whole Creation; and penetrating into Heaven, She came to the foot of Our throne, offered Us the return of the love of all Creation, and pronounced Her first ‘thank You’ in the name of all. Oh! how happy We felt in hearing the ‘thank You’ of this Little Baby Queen. And We confirmed in Her all graces, all gifts, such as to make Her surpass all other creatures together.
Then, throwing Herself into Our arms, She delighted with Us, swimming in the sea of all contentments, being embellished with new beauty, with new light and with new love. She pleaded once again for mankind, praying Us in tears to let the Eternal Word descend in order to save Her brothers. But as She was doing this, Our Will let Her know that She should descend to the earth, and immediately She left Our contentments and joys, and departed, in order to do… what? Our Will. What powerful magnet Our Will was, dwelling on earth in this new-born Queen! No longer did the earth appear alien to Us; We no longer felt like striking it, making use of Our justice. We had the power of Our Will which, in this innocent child, blocked Our arms, smiled at Us from the earth, and turned justice into graces and sweet smile; so much so, that unable to resist this sweet enchantment, the Eternal Word hastened His course.
Oh, prodigy of my Divine Will! – to You everything is due, through You everything is accomplished, and there is no greater prodigy than my Will dwelling in the creature.”
