“Being light, she really knows that all the good that she does is done by God Himself, working within her nothingness; and if this nothingness has not been completely emptied of all that does not belong to God, God will not go down into that soul to create great works worthy of Him!”

Dear Divine Will Family,

I felt so compelled to send out another Snippet because I failed to thank all the wonderful and very generous souls who have prayed, and had Masses said for my son, Paul. How can I thank you enough? I can’t, but you all have my eternal gratitude and will be in my prayers until my last breath!

I know that there is not a prayer prayed that is not heard by Jesus and Our Heavenly Mother, so I know that all your prayers will help my son either with his conversion or on his death bed. I witnessed this miracle with my husband. Thank each of you with all my heart and soul for all your prayers and efforts to help him. I feel confident that God will help Paul. And I feel certain that Our Mother will not let go of him very easily because She never lets go of a soul confided to Her Immaculate Heart! So, thank you again and again! You show yourselves as true children of God concerned with saving souls. Our Heavenly Father will return your prayers for another soul with graces and blessings beyond our comprehension.

March 4th is Luisa’s death anniversary, and I thought Light, the Light of the Divine Will, since she saw all the Suns (Light) which her acts in the Divine Will created, would be appropriate to honor her and to teach us the magnificence of this Life of God reigning in our souls! What these Acts of God are doing accomplished in His Holy Will!

Of course, our acts in the Divine Will do not have the merits of those of Luisa because of knowledge. We do not have the knowledge of this Life of God as Luisa did and Jesus says, the efficaciousness of the acts accomplished in the Divine Will is all about knowledge! May we continue to study, study, study, for this also give much more honor and glory to our Heavenly Father!

We love you all so very much and keep each of you in our daily prayers! May the Light of the Divine Will guide you and lead all of you ever deeper into His Holy Will!

The Divine Will is the sanctity of sanctities, and the soul who does It on earth as in Heaven is a queen among souls, who gives life to all the good done on earth and in Heaven. Such souls are the true Consecrated Hosts of the Divine Will.

As I continued in my usual state, I felt a great desire to do the Most Holy Will of Blessed Jesus; and He came and told me:

“My daughter, my Will is the Sanctity of Sanctities. The soul who does my Will according to the perfection that I am teaching you—that is, on earth as It is in Heaven–however small, ignorant and unknown she may be, leaves even other Saints behind in spite of their prodigies, their stunning conversions and their miracles. Truly, in comparison, the souls who do my Will as It is done in my third “FIAT” are queens among souls, and it is as if all other souls were at their service.

“It seems as if the souls who live in my Will do nothing, but they actually do everything, because being in my Will these souls act Divinely, in a hidden and surprising way. They are the light which illuminates, the wind which purifies, the fire which burns, the miracles which cause miracles. Those who perform miracles are channels; but the power to perform miracles resides in these souls. That is why they are the feet of the missionary, the tongue of the preacher, the strength of the weak, the patience of the sick, the rule of those who govern, the obedience of their subjects, the long suffering of the slandered, the firmness of those who brave dangers, the heroism of the heroes, the courage of the martyrs, the sanctity of the saints, and so on with all the rest. Being in my Will, they take part in all the good that can ever be both in Heaven and on earth.

“This is why I can say with certitude that they are my true Hosts—but living Hosts, not dead ones. The accidents that form the host are not full of life, neither do they influence my Life; but the soul who lives in my Divine Will is full of life and as she does my Will she influences and participates in all that I do. That is why these consecrated Hosts of my Will are dearer to Me even than the sacramental Hosts, and my whole purpose for dwelling in the sacramental Hosts is to form the sacramental Hosts of my Will.

“My daughter, I take such delight in my Will that, when I simply hear souls talk about It, I feel overjoyed and I invite the whole Heavenly court to celebrate. Imagine what will become of those souls who will do It! In them I find all my joys, and so I give all my joys to them. Their life is the life of the Blessed. They ponder, desire and yearn for two things only: my Will and my Love. They need to do very little else, when in fact they do everything. The virtues themselves remain absorbed in my Will and in my Love. That is why they have nothing to do with them, since my Will contains, possesses and absorbs all things—but in a Divine manner, immense and eternal. This is the life of the Blessed.”

Divine love is firm and genuine, and is symbolized by the Sun. The love that is not all for Jesus is similar to the fire of the earth.

This morning, as soon as my always adorable Jesus came, He told me:

“My daughter, my Love is symbolized by the Sun. The Sun rises majestically but, as it rises, it is always fixed and it never really rises. It soaks the entire earth with its light; it enlivens all the plants with its heat; there is no eye which does not enjoy it. One could say that there is almost no good on the earth that doesn’t come from its blessed influence.

“How many things would die without the light of the Sun? Yet, it does all its work without fanfare, without saying a word, and without demanding anything. It does not bother anyone; it doesn’t even take up any space on the earth which it fills with its light. Men can do whatever they want with it. Indeed, while they enjoy the goodness of the Sun, they do not pay any attention to it, and it passes unnoticed among them.

“Such is my Love, which the Sun symbolizes. My Love rises in the midst of all souls like a majestic Sun. There is no mind that is not irradiated by my Light; there is no heart that does not feel my warmth; there is no soul that is not embraced by my Love. My love is more than a Sun in the midst of men’s souls. But, alas, how few souls pay attention to Me! I remain almost ignored in the midst of them. I receive nothing in return, but I continue to give light, heat and love. If a soul pays attention to Me, I go mad, but without fanfare, because my Love is not subject to weaknesses, being firm, fixed and sincere. I would like your love for Me to be just like that, and if it were so, you would also become a Sun for Me and for all souls, since true Love possesses all of the Sun’s qualities.

“On the other hand, a love which is not firm, fixed or sincere is symbolized by earthly fire, which is subject to constant change. Its light is not capable of illuminating everyone—it is a very gloomy light, mixed with smoke. Its heat is limited, and if it is not fed with wood, it dies down and turns into ash—while if the wood is green, it sputters and smokes.

“Such are the souls who do not live completely for Me, as my true lovers. If they do any good, their good deeds produce more noise and smoke than light. If they are not fed by some human concern—even under the guise of holiness or conscience—they fade and become colder than ash.

“Inconstancy is their identifying mark: now fire, now ash.”
