HAPPY, HOLY AND PROPEROUS
NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
Dear Divine Will Family,
I am very sorry for being so long between Snippets. It is a story and a half, the plans Jesus has for us. As I have said before, my ankle is very good and several weeks ago, it was ready for me to begin walking, but the incision done for the operation is not healing….it is still not healed. It has been determined that I am not diabetic, and I am sure that it was mostly my fault that it is not healing properly. I thought I could take care of it myself, so I didn’t go to the doctor about it until after the New Year. He said I was not to do anything else to the wound, he was taking over. Boy, was I relieved! It has been two weeks since he began treating it and it is still not healed. I do think it is doing better, but it looks like it will be a couple more weeks before it is healed enough for me to begin walking. I can’t walk or put pressure on the foot until the wound is healed completely because the pressure just opens it up again. I am still in a wheelchair, not able to do anything for myself, which is the hardest thing to suffer in my opinion. So, understanding Luisa’s writings, it seems that Jesus is sharing with mea little of the Wound in His left foot and I accept it with all my heart since this can only be His Will for me, for it sure is not my will wanting this!
Now, since my right foot has had to do all the work, my right knee is acting up. It is very painful when I have to use it. God is so good! I have to thank Him, because I feel He is now sharing with me, His Sorrowful right Knee when He fell three times.
And last, but not least, I am also suffering with a torn rotor cup in my right shoulder!! So, maybe He is sharing with me the carrying of His Cross! They are very small pains, but I am happy to share anything that Jesus wants me to share! I don’t know yet if I will have to have surgery, but please pray I will not need surgery on my shoulder! I need to get back to Tennessee and get back to work. It is Federal Tax time. The reason I have not sent out any Snippets lately is because it is very painful for me to type with this condition in my shoulder! I am happy to do whatever Jesus wants for His Kingdom to come, and I will very happily give Him my tiny fiat! The doctor said this could be treated with an injection, if the rotor cup is not too damaged….may this be God’s Will!
It is painful for me to type this Snippet and that is the reason you have not received a Snippet in a long while! So, it might be a while before you get another one! I am so sorry!! I will do my best to keep everyone informed about what the doctors are doing. Fiat always!!
Please read the attached writing slowly and carefully. It is packed with great information for us to understand what we must do to enter into His Holy Will and the giving of our entire ‘being’ (body and soul) which we must give Him always and in every circumstance.
Remember always that we love all of you so very much and we keep each of you in our daily prayers! May we always give our all to Jesus with love and gratitude in everything, as He gave His ALL to us with such Immense Love!
January 1, 1927
The will of the soul is a present for Baby Jesus. His whole life was the symbol of the Divine Will and an invitation to souls by the Divine Will. To acquire knowledge of the Divine Will is the way to hasten the coming of the Kingdom of His Will.
(I was reflecting on the old year, which was setting, and the new one which was dawning.)
I continued to soar in the light of the Divine Will, and I was begging the pretty little Baby that, just as the old year was dying never to be re-born, so He would make my will die and live no more. And I asked that as a present for the New Year, He would give me His Will—just as I gave Him the gift of mine, so that He could place it as a footstool at His tender little feet—so that it might have no other life but His Will alone. Now, while I was saying this and some other things, my sweet Jesus came out from within me, and said to me: “Daughter of My Will, how I love, long, and desire that your will might come to an end in you. O how gladly I accept your present! How delightful it will be for Me to keep it as a soft footstool under My feet. Indeed, as long as the human will remains in the soul—outside of its center (which is God)—the human will will be hard. But when it enters again into the center from which it came and serves as a footstool for the feet of your little Baby Jesus, it becomes soft, and I use it to entertain Myself. As little as I am, is it not right that I have some entertainment? Isn’t it right that—in the midst of so many sorrows, deprivations and tears—I have your will to make Me smile?
“Now, you must know that the soul who puts an end to her will, returns to the source from which she came. And the new life—the life of light, the perennial life of My Will—begins in her. You see: When I came down to earth, I wanted to give many examples and illustrations of how I wanted to put an end to the human will. I wanted to be born at midnight, so as to cleave the night of the human will with the bright day of My Own. And even though at midnight the night continues, it does not end everything—it is yet the beginning of a new day—and My Angels, to honor My birth and to announce to everyone the day of My Will from midnight on gladdened the firmament of heaven with new stars and new suns, so as to turn the night into something greater than daylight. This was the homage that the Angels gave to My little Humanity—where the full day of the Sun of My Divine Will dwelt—and they called mankind into the full day of My Will.
Although I was still little, I submitted Myself to the very cruel cut of circumcision, which made Me shed bitter tears on account of the pain—and not only did I do this, but My Mama and dear St. Joseph cried with Me. It was the cleavage of the human will that I wanted to achieve—so that souls might let the Divine Will flow within that wound and so that a broken will might have life no more, but only Mine, which had flowed within that wound to start its life anew.
When I was still little, I wanted to flee to Egypt. A tyrannical and iniquitous will wanted to murder Me—a symbol of the human will that wants to murder Mine—and I fled, so as to say to all: “Flee the human will, if you do not want Mine to be put to death.” My whole life was nothing but the calling of the Divine Will into the human. In Egypt I lived like a stranger among those people—which symbolized the alienation of My Will in the midst of mankind and the reality that whoever wants to live in peace, united with My Will, must live as if he were estranged from the human will. Otherwise, there will always be war between the two of them—they are two irreconcilable wills.
After My exile, I returned to My fatherland. And this symbolized the return of My Will to Its dear fatherland, after Its long exile of centuries upon centuries, into the midst of Its children to reign. And as I passed through these stages in My life, I kept forming the Kingdom of My Will within Me, and I called It with incessant prayers, tears and sufferings, to come to reign among men. I returned to My fatherland, and I lived hidden and unknown. O how this symbolizes the sorrow of My Will which lived in the midst of men, unknown and hidden! And in My hiddenness, I prayed that the Supreme Will be known—that It might receive the homage and the glory which are Its due. Everything that I did symbolized a sorrow of My Will, the condition in which souls put It, and My call to return Its Kingdom to It. And this is what I want your life to be—the continuous calling of the Kingdom of My Will into the midst of mankind.”
Later, I was going around through the whole Creation, to bring the heavens, the stars, the sun, the moon, and the sea—in short, everything—to the feet of little Baby Jesus with me, so that we could ask Him, all together, that this Kingdom of His Will on earth might come soon. And in My desire, I was saying to Him: “See, I am not the only one who is praying to You. Rather, the heavens are praying with the voices of all the stars; the sun, with the voice of its light and of its heat; the sea, with its murmuring—they are all praying to You that Your Will may come to reign upon earth. How can You resist listening to so many voices that pray to You—innocent voices—voices animated by Your very Will, that are praying You.”
Now, while I was saying this, my little Jesus came out from within me to receive the homage of all Creation, and to listen to the silent language of all creatures. And He held me close to Himself and said to me: “My daughter, the easiest way to hasten the coming of My Will on earth is to spread the knowledge of It. Pearls of the knowledge of My Will bring light and heat and produce within themselves the Prime Act of God—and there the soul finds the first act on which to model her own. If she does not find the first act, the soul does not have the power to produce the prime act. That is why the acts—the things that are most necessary to form this Kingdom—would be missing. Do you see, then, what it means to have one additional pearl of knowledge about My Will? By carrying the prime act of God within themselves, souls will bear within themselves a magnetic force—a powerful magnet—so as to draw creatures to repeat the prime act of God. With their light, they will bring about the disillusionment of the human will; with their heat, they will soften the hardest of hearts to bend before this Divine Act; and souls will feel inspired to want to model themselves on this act. That is why, the more pearls of knowledge I reveal about My Will, the more quickly the Kingdom of the Divine Fiat will be drawn down to earth.”
