Knowing Our Nothingness – Podcast #1

Join us as we read from the Book of Heaven about the importance of knowing our own nothingness to allow God to be our all. Jesus tells Luisa, ” Completely divested of herself, she does not notice merits or self-interest. Rather all intent to only make me content, she gives me absolute dominion in all her acts, without wanting to know what I do with them.”

We will be reading from: Volume 5  (March 24, 1903) & Volume 12 (June 14, 1917) & Volume 12 (December 6, 1917) & Volume 7 (February 28, 1906) & Volume 10 (January 11, 1912) & Volume 8 ( November 18, 1907) &
Volume 3 (June 27, 1900)

Do you think it’s trivial that, as long as I let His Will flow, He gives me the power to form as many Divine Lives for as many acts as I do? They might be even natural or tiny acts; as long as His Will is there, the great prodigy is performed.
