Fr. Robert Young: Most or all of you have learned about the passing of Fr. Robert Young, OFM, who died on Sunday, November 6, 2017, in St. Joseph Hospital in Tampa, Fl. He had just taken someone to the Tampa airport, and while driving away from the airport, he had a massive heart attack, which caused him to drive into the wall of a building and crash the car he was driving. Earlier reports said that he crashed into a fire hydrant. There was some large piping on the wall, near where the car crashed, according to what I have heard.
Two men, working nearby, rushed to the scene. Fr. Young was still alive but very dazed. Police were called and then an ambulance. Fr. Young died in the hospital. Family members were eventually contacted, and his funeral and burial were held in Orange, Texas, close to the border with Louisiana, where one of his sisters lives and where his parents are buried.
Fr. Young was well-liked and loved as a very active missionary of the Divine Will. I knew him in the early stages of his journey in the Life of the Divine Will, and he shared with me stories pertaining to his adult life and Priesthood, when he was in Jacksonville, FL, and when Kathy and I were living there. Father and I traveled together at times, even to Australia, on half of the Divine Will. [This is just a brief report.]
Maria Acheson: Maria was a dear friend in the Divine Will, who lived in the Miami area. Maria died on October 22, 2017, following many bouts of health issues and internal bleeding. I have never known anyone who had such a great and generous heart as Maria. I met her by phone on January 1, 1986. She soon invited me to speak to a group in Miami. I was assisted by George Kurass, another person with a very generous heart. George died not too long ago, as did another good friend, Fr. John Brown, whom I came to know in early 1987.
Soon after my meeting Maria Acheson, she introduced the Divine Will in Nicaragua, while the Sandinistas were very active spreading Communism there. Maria would often call our home and she would counsel me spiritually at times about my defects, for which I was glad that she also prayed in my regard. [ Another brief report].
I have known not only the four persons mentioned above (Fr. Robert, Maria Acheson, George Kurass, and Fr. John Brown) who have died in the Divine Will at whatever stage and degree, only God knows; but I have also know many more souls who have died after learning about and loving the Gift of the Divine Will over the years.
Pearls of the New and Divine Holiness
New Heavens and a New Earth
Based on a Presentation by Thomas Fahy
at the Tampa Conference November 2017
Bible: New Heavens and a New Earth
21 For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath
not been from the beginning of the world until now,
neither shall be.
22 And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should
be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall
be shortened. (Matt: 24)
Day of the Lord
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the
Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved,
and the elements shall melt with the burning heat?
13 But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to his
promises, in which justice dwelleth. ( 2 Peter) – Douay Rheims
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first
heaven and the first earth was gone, and the sea is now no
2 And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming
down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned
for her husband. (Apoc: 21 – Douay Rheims)
Book of Heaven: New Heavens in the souls, who live in the Divine Will
Jesus to Luisa: Indeed, My Father seems to want to go beyond everything that has ever taken place in the history of the world. He wants to begin a new era, a new creation—as if the new history of Creation were just now beginning. So, let Me act—because whatever I do is of the greatest importance.
As the soul dies in my Will, no beauty, height, wealth, sanctity, wisdom or love can equal her–nothing. Nothing can be compared to her—nothing equals her.
When the soul who dies identified with my Will enters the Heavenly Fatherland, not only will the gates of Heaven open to her, but the whole Heavenly court will bow to welcome her into her celestial home, to honor the work of my Will in her.
I have my court in Heaven and I want another court on earth. Now guess: Who is going to form this Court? It is the souls who live in the Divine Will.
Adam and Eve lived in the Terrestial Eden but The Divine Will is the Divine Eden of the Soul.
If in the earthly Eden the union between your first ancestors was human—and I gave them the most beautiful delights of the earth to enjoy, while they enjoyed Me at intervals—in the divine Eden the union is divine. I will make you enjoy the most beautiful Heavenly delights, and you will enjoy Me as much as you want.
The enemy had access to the terrestrial Eden, and the first sin was committed. Entrance to the divine Eden is barred to the devil, to passions, and to weaknesses. Besides, the devil does not want to enter, knowing that my Will would burn him more than the very fire of hell.
In my Will you will begin your first acts done in a divine manner—acts which are immense, eternal, and infinite, embracing everything and everyone.
Just as I stretched out a Heaven over human nature and my “FIAT” studded it with stars, in the same way, I stretched out a Heaven in the depths of the soul, and the good acts that she does adorn this Heaven with stars.
Jesus stretched out a Heaven within our souls—or, rather, not one, but many. Our intelligence is a Heaven; our Gaze is a Heaven; Our word, action, desire, affection, and heart are Heavens.
If the Heaven of our mind thinks in a saintly way, as thoughts are formed, stars, suns and beautiful comets are formed as well; and as our Angel sees them formed, he takes them and places them in the Heaven of our intellect. And if the Heaven of our mind is holy, the gaze is holy, the word, the desire and the heartbeat are holy.
In creating man, I left him free. I wanted him united with Me, creating the sun and the stars, to embellish the Heaven of his soul.
But do you know what garments the soul wears who lives in my Will? They are not garments of gold, but of purest Light. This garment of Light will serve as a mirror to show all of Heaven how many acts she has done in my Will—because, in each act she has done in my Will, she enclosed Me completely. Her clothing will be adorned with many mirrors, and in each mirror my entire Self will appear.
Before creating man I said to my Divine Love: “I do not want to be alone, but I want the man to keep Me company. I want to create him to have fun with him, to share all my joys with him. In his company, I will pour Myself out in Love.”
This is why I made him in my Likeness; and as his mind thinks of Me and takes an interest in Me, he keeps company with my Wisdom.
As my thoughts keep company with his, we enjoy ourselves together.If his eyes look at Me—look and at created things to love Me—I feel the company of his gaze.
If his tongue prays or teaches what is good, I feel the company of his voice. If his heart loves Me, I feel the company of his love; and so on with all the rest of his actions.
How great will be the happiness of the soul when she finds herself on high in Heaven, and when she sees her acts done in my Will, as defenders of my Throne!
That is why the glory in Heaven of the soul who lives in my Will on earth will be different from that of the other Blessed.
Acts done in the Divine Will enter into the sphere of Eternity, and always run ahead of all human acts.
I was offering myself in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with Jesus, so that I too might receive his consecration with Him. And, moving in my interior, He said to me: My daughter, enter into my Will, so that you may find yourself in all of the Hosts—not only those of the present, but those of the future also. In this way you will receive, with Me, as many consecrations as I receive. In each Host I place a Life of Mine, and I want to receive another one in exchange.
My daughter, the acts done in my Will rise up to Heaven, circulate in everyone, and embrace all centuries, all places, and all creatures.
I will see the children of my Will all sealed with the immense, eternal, and infinite Will. I will see that eternal point whose Life exists only in Heaven, flowing down upon the earth and molding souls with its infinite principles, with its divine way of acting, and with the multiplication of its acts within one single Act.
As the Third Fiat comes to be known, loving and disinterested souls will come to live in my FIAT. They will be like rainbows—rainbows of peace—which will reconcile Heaven and earth. They will stop the flood of so many sins which inundate the earth.
These rainbows of peace will possess the Third FIAT as their own life; that is why my ”Fiat Voluntas Tua” will find its fulfillment in them.
As you move forward on the path of my Volition, the rainbow of peace will form, which will forge the connecting link between the Divine Will and the human will.
From this link my Will will have life on earth, and this will begin the fulfillment of my prayer, and the prayer of the whole Church: ‘Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as It is in Heaven.”
Look at Creation: Since it did not depart from my Will in anything, the sky is always starry and blue; the sun is full of light and heat. The whole of Creation is in perfect harmony; each thing supports the others.
This is how man would have been, had he not withdrawn from my Will—and so are the souls who live in my Will: They are the new Heavens, the new suns, the new earth—bedecked with flowers, with an even more multiform beauty and fascination.
You must know that as you think in my Will, as you speak, as you work, as you love, and so on, you bring forth into my Will as many children as the thoughts that you think, the words that you speak, or the acts of love that you bring forth.
These children multiply themselves to the infinite in my Will and go around Heaven and through all the earth, bringing new joy, new glory and happiness to Heaven, and new grace to the earth.
The acts done in the Divine Will form new Heavens of love and of glory.
How could I not care for this soul and be extremely jealous of her, if just one act of hers is worth more than the whole Creation?
Now, see how much I need these souls who live in my Will. Since I have destined them to be like skin to the body of My Church, and like circulation of life for all my members.
They will be the ones who will give proper growth to the members which have not grown. They will heal the wounded members, and restore the freshness, the beauty, and the splendor of the whole Mystical Body.
This is why the end of days cannot come if I do not have these souls who live as though dissolved in my Will—they interest Me more than anything else.
Each truth contains within itself a distinct beatitude, happiness, joy and beauty. What it means to have known on earth one more truth about the Divine Will when the soul will be in Heaven.
The truths that one has known on earth are Divine seeds which sprout with beatitudes, joy, and the like, when the soul reaches her Heavenly Fatherland.
Do you believe that all of Heaven is aware of all my goods? No, no! O how much remains for It to enjoy, that It does not enjoy today!
Every creature who enters into Heaven who has known one more truth unknown to the others, will carry within herself the seed to send forth from Me new happiness, new beauty, and new joys.
And these souls will be their fountain and their cause, while the others will take part in them.
The last day will not come if I do not find souls who are disposed, so that I can reveal all my truths—so that the Heavenly Jerusalem resounds with my full Glory, and all the Blessed share in all my beatitudes—some as a direct cause of having known that truth, and some as an indirect cause, through the one who has known it.
If other souls come to form a part of the Redemption it is because of these souls who live in My Will. There is no blessing that I grant, either in Heaven or on earth, that I do not grant for their sake.
My daughter, My words are full of truth and light; and they carry within them the power and the virtue of transmuting the soul into the truth, the light and the good that they contain.
My truths are full of beauty and attractiveness, so that once a soul has been adorned by the beauty of My truths, she is captivated by this beauty.
All the angels and saints know you, Luisa,—every single one—and they anxiously await your activity in My Will, like a divine note (and the most harmonious one), which flows over everything they have done in life, to give them greater splendor and happiness.
All of the souls in Purgatory know you, as they feel washing over them the continuous refreshment that comes with working in My Will.
My daughter, for the one who really loves Me and does my Will in everything, her heartbeat and Mine become one.
Every reflection on the Passion of Jesus is a light drawn from his Most Holy Humanity to make souls like Him.
How the Angels surround the soul who does the Hours of the Passion. These Hours are little sips of sweetness that the soul gives Jesus.
My daughter, only in one who lives in my Will do I feel repaid for Creation, Redemption and Sanctification: She glorifies Me in the way that creatures should glorify Me.
My Will makes souls happy, even in the midst of the fiercest storms. This soul is always serene with a smiling sun, because her origin is in Heaven, her nobility is Divine, and her holiness is in God –and she is kept there by God Himself.
In the Divine Will, virtues take their place in the Divine order; while, outside of It, in the human order, they are subject to self-esteem, vainglory, and passions.
O how many good works, how many Sacraments received only make God weep and cry out for reparation because they are empty of the Divine Will, and, consequently, fruitless.
O how Heaven longs for everyone to understand true sanctity, and how easily other things would then lose their appeal.
I would like to have my Savior’s tears to weep with Him over these false sanctities, and to show the whole world that true sanctity lies in doing the Divine Will and in living in the Divine Volition.
The soul is firm—immune to inconstancy or willful fault. Jesus remains the sole author, animator and craftsman of the sanctity of this enviable creature. She owns nothing of her own, but holds everything in common with Jesus.
The Divine Will is her passion. And since I am everywhere, the reflections of these souls reach Me in Heaven, on earth, in the Sacramental Host, and in the hearts of creatures. They are my earthly homes, in which I take refuge from the disgust that other creatures cause Me.
Ah! my daughter, the present generation deserves to be completely destroyed; and if I allow some small remnant to survive, it will be to form these Suns of the Sanctity of living in my Will, who, through my example, will repay Me for all that other creatures, past, present and future, owed Me. Then will the earth give Me true glory, and my “FIAT VOLUNTAS TUA, on earth as it is in Heaven” will achieve its complete fulfillment. (11-27-1917)
But to penetrate inside my Will, to embrace its immensity, to be multiplied with Me and—even while living on earth—to penetrate everywhere, both into Heaven and into hearts, casting off human ways and acting in divine ways—this is not yet known.
They are precisely the ones who will live for the good of their brothers—without a shadow of self-interest or ambition for personal sanctity—but in a way that is entirely divine.
My daughter, you have said nothing about the creation of man—the masterpiece of our Creative Power—in whom, not in sprinklings, but in waves and rivers the Eternal One poured forth his Love, his beauty, and his mastery; and, seized by an overflowing love, He made Himself the center of man. That is why everything you see in the Creation was absolutely nothing compared to the creation of man.
O how many more beautiful Heavens, stars and suns did He stretch out in the created soul! What a variety of beauty! How many harmonies! Suffice it to say that He looked at the man He had created and found him so beautiful that He fell in love with him. And, jealous of this prodigy of His, He Himself became the guardian and possessor of man, and said: ”I have created everything for you. I give you dominion over everything. All is yours, and you will be all Mine.”
The Saints who lived in the mirror of my Humanity—as if in the shadow of my Will—will be the stars. Those who live in the Divine Will, although coming later in time, will be the Suns.
Now, my Resurrection symbolizes the souls who will form their Sanctity in my Will. The Saints of the past centuries symbolize my Humanity. They received the seal of the works of my Humanity before my Resurrection. That is why they will be numerous—almost like the stars they will form a beautiful adornment for the Heaven of my Humanity.
But the Saints who live in my Will—those who will symbolize my Resurrected Humanity—will be few. Few are those who dispose themselves for this, because even in sanctity, souls seek something for their own good; while the Sanctity of living in my Will has nothing of its own—everything is God’s. You do not belong to the many, but to the few. That is why you must always be attentive to my call, and to your continuous flight in my Will.
Now, my daughter, I want you to know that what a soul does on earth forms the capital that she stores up for Heaven. That is why, if she does little, she will have little; if she does much, she will have much. If a soul loved Me and glorified Me for ten, she will receive ten times as many joys and corresponding glory, and she will be loved by Me ten times as much. If another soul loved Me and glorified Me for a hundred and for a thousand, she will receive joy, love and glory for a hundred and for a thousand.
God created man so that he might keep Him company.
I united myself with Jesus, begging Him not to leave me alone, but to come and keep me company. And He moved in my interior and said to me: My daughter, if you knew how I desire, yearn for, and love man’s company! I yearn for it so much.
This is why I made him in my Likeness; and as his mind thinks of Me and takes an interest in Me, he keeps company with my Wisdom—and as my thoughts keep company with his, we enjoy ourselves together. If his eyes look at Me—and at created things to love Me—I feel the company of his gaze. If his tongue prays or teaches what is good, I feel the company of his voice. If his heart loves Me, I feel the company of his love; and so with all the rest of his actions. But if he does the opposite, I feel lonely, like a destitute king. But alas! How many leave Me alone and neglect Me!
Acts done in the Divine Will enter into the sphere of Eternity, and always run ahead of all human acts.
After this, He added: Let us say “FIAT” together. And everything—Heaven and earth—was filled with adoration of the Supreme Majesty. Then, again, He repeated, “FIAT,” and the Blood, the wounds, and the pains of Jesus rose up and multiplied to infinity. And then, for the third time, He said “FIAT”—and this FIAT multiplied in all the wills of creatures to sanctify them. Then He said to me: My daughter these three FIATs are the Creating, the Redeeming, and the Sanctifying FIAT. In creating man, I endowed him with three powers—intellect, memory and will—and with three FIATs I will accomplish the work of man’s sanctification.
At the Creating FIAT, man’s intellect becomes as though enraptured. How many things he understands about Me and about my Love for him, as I am hidden within all created things to make Myself known, and to give him love so as to be loved. In the FIAT of Redemption, his memory remains as though enchanted by the excesses of my Love in suffering so much to help and save man from the state of sin. In the third FIAT, my Love wants to express even more. I want to assail the human will; I want to place my own Will in support of his will—so that the human will may not only becomes enraptured and enchanted, but sustained by an Eternal Will. And as my Will becomes his support in everything, man will be almost incapable of running away from It.
The generations will not end until my Will reigns upon earth. My Redeeming FIAT will place Itself in the middle, between the Creating FIAT and the Sanctifying FIAT. All three of them will intertwine and accomplish man’s sanctification. The third FIAT will give man so much as to make him return almost to his original condition; and only then, when I see man just as he came forth from Me, will my Work be complete, and I will rest perpetually in my final FIAT. Only life in my Volition will bring man back to his original state. That is why you must be attentive, and united with Me, help Me to complete man’s sanctification.
My Will will descend from Heaven into their midst. All of your acts and those that others have done in my Volition will wage war on other creatures—but not a war of blood. They will wage war with weapons of love, giving them gifts, graces and peace
Only the human will causes discord between creature and Creator; one single act of the human will causes confusion between Heaven and earth, and makes Creator and creature dissimilar. On the other hand, for the soul who lives in my Will, all is harmony; her things and Mine harmonize together; I am with her on earth, and she is with Me in Heaven—one is our desire, our Life, and our Will.
The greatest miracle that God can perform is that a soul live in His Will.
My daughter, the greatest miracle that my Omnipotence can perform, is that a soul live in my Fiat. Does it seem like a small thing to you that my Will, Holy, Immense, Eternal, descends into one creature, and that putting my Will and hers together, I dissolve her in Me, becoming the life of all that the creature does—even the tiniest things? So, her heartbeat, word, thought, motion and breath are those of God living within the creature. She conceals Heaven and earth within herself, although on the surface one sees only a creature. Greater grace, a prodigy more portentous, a Sanctity more heroic than my Fiat, I could not give.
My Will is everywhere, and the acts done in my Will run everywhere—both in Heaven and on earth. They run to the past, because my Will has always existed; to the present, because my Will has lost nothing of Its activity; to the future, because It will exist eternally. How beautiful are the acts in my Will! And since my Will contains ever new delights, these acts form new delights even for the Blessed.
In the soul who lives in my Will there is not just one Fiat, but repeated Fiats. That is why, as the soul works in my Will, I repeat the Fiat and stretch out new Heavens, new suns and stars; and since the soul contains an intelligence, these Heavens are new Heavens of love, of glory, of light, of adoration, of knowledge—forming such a variety of beauty that even I remain enraptured. All of Heaven—the Saints, the Angels, cannot turn their gaze away from her, because as they behold the varied Heavens that she holds within, other new ones spread themselves out within her, one more beautiful than the other. They see the Heavenly Fatherland reflected in the soul who lives in my Will—the multiplicity of new things which multiply themselves to infinity.
Since the soul who lives in my Will has a mind, her will runs within Mine, and the power of my Fiat uses it as raw material with which to stretch out these new Heavens. That is why as the soul works in my Will, she delights Me by forming new Creations. Her acts express the Life of my Will, the wonders of my Volition, and my repeated Fiat—how could I not love this soul?
Hearing, speaking, and writing about my Will is the most sublime thing that can exist in Heaven or on earth. It is the thing that glorifies Me the most, that embraces all good things together. O my Will, my Will! Just to hear you speak of It brings Me such joy and sweetness! And as I feel surrounded by my Will contained in the creature as if by another Immensity of Mine, I feel such delight that it makes Me forget the evil that other creatures do.
That is why these souls existed in my Sanctity; they exist, and they will exist. They were with Me in the good that I did; they never went out of the ray in which I had sent them forth to the light. Since they never departed from my Will, I amused Myself with them, and I still do. My union with them is permanent. I see them floating above everything; human supports do not exist for them.
I would feel as if I cheated them if I did not keep them informed, and did not let them do what I do. That is why there is nothing good that does not come down from them.
I am waiting for my Sanctity to have Its echo upon the earth, and for my rays to come out to the light, to give Me complete Glory, restoring to Me the love and the honor which others have not given Me. But, like the Sun, they will be the most unnoticed, receiving no fanfare. And if anyone wants to look at them, my jealousy will be so strong that they will run the risk of being blinded, and they will be forced to lower their eyes to regain their sight. Do you see how beautiful is the Sanctity in my Will? It is the Sanctity closest to your Creator. This is why It will have primacy over all other sanctities. It will enclose within Itself all other sanctities together, and will be the life of all other sanctities.
Now, my Will is the greatest of all virtues; that is why all virtues remain reduced and dissolved in my Will. Moreover, before the virtue of My Will’s sanctity, the other virtues tremble out of reverence for my Will. And if without my Will virtues think of doing something great, at contact with the Sanctity and Power of My Will’s virtue, they realize they have done nothing; and to give them the seal of virtue, I am forced to plunge them into the immense sea of my Will. Not only has my Will primacy over all, but It gives different shades of beauty to the virtues; It covers them with divine colors, celestial glaze, and dazzling light. Indeed, if the virtues are not covered by my Will, they may be good, but they are not beautiful with the Beauty that enraptures, enchants, and enamors Heaven and earth.
