Question Adriana, you have been reading about
this spirituality, teaching it to many people, for years. What does
this spirituality of Luisa mean to you?
AP It means that as we give to the Lord our own will, and we no
longer use it, receiving His Will in exchange, we feel such an interior
peace that we are able to bear things that, humanly speaking, we were
not able to suffer. But with His Divine Will, the Lord gives us His
Power, His Divine Power, His Creative Power.
Question He says that these writings will renew the face of the earth.
AP We will live on earth as the Blessed in Heaven. It is the fulfillment
of the Our Father!
Question So, in your opinion, this is the future of the Church?
AP Yes, in the writings of Luisa it is said that when the Church
will possess them, there will be a fire within the Church. It will be
that same fire which the Gospel talks about: They came to bring
the fire on earth. Oh, how I wish that it could be already burning.
This is the fire of the Divine Will!
Question And do you think that Luisa herself is important in this? I mean,
is it possible for people to know the Divine Will without knowing Luisa?
AP The two things go together!
Question Is Luisa a saint?
in bed for all those years, writing all these things. We know from
Abresch, who knew Luisa personally, that Jesus Himself called her
My Divine Luisa. I exalted her up to the highest Seraphim.
Question Will she be canonized, in your opinion?
AP It might be that the Lord does not need this, since He is already
glorified if we live this spirituality. If we do it, this is His Glory!
But it is up to us to live this spirituality, so that It may open its
ways. In this way Luisa is ipso facto (by fact) a Saint!
Question Well, is there anything else you would like to tell us? What would
be your advice to someone who has just heard about the Divine Will for
the first time?
Question Are you happy to have known this spirituality?
AP If these souls have sufferings, problems and many other things,
they can say to the Lord: Lord, I can do nothing, but I know that
You can do everything. Take my will, and come to act in me...to work,
to walk, to breathe, to suffer in me. As we empty ourselves and
let Him act, our lives become more simple, and perfect. It will be easier
to proceed along the path of this life.
It has been the greatest grace I have received on this earth. Even
greater than knowing Padre Pio, who has been a great Confessor and Spiritual
Director. But with this spirituality we become divinized. We find this
also in the Gospel, but Jesus teaches this to Luisa with many examples,
which make it easy and attractive. This is the greatest grace for us,
which allows us to bear and suffer things that we could not bear before;
but with the suffering of
Jesus within us, everything becomes easy!
Question Adriana, do you know whether Padre Pio did ever
read any of the writings of Luisa?
AP One lady who went to Confession
to Padre Pio told him that she had read the Hours of the Passion. Padre
Pio said: I read it four times! Oh, how beautiful! And now,
another one is about to come out about the Blessed Virgin in the
Kingdom. Oh, how beautiful that one, too! So, Padre Pio
was aware of everything that came from Luisas hands.
Question Adriana, do you know whether any vocations matured from the conferences
of Federico Abresch?
AP Yes, many vocations! There was a young lady, who left
her boyfriend to become a cloistered nun. When Padre Pio told her that
those things were the truth, she said: So, what am I doing here
in the world? I want to be in a Convent and lead a cloistered life.
So she went and died in the Convent.
Also, other young people, when they
heard Abresch talking about this spirituality which is living on
earth as the Saints and the Blessed live in Heaven decided to become
priests or monks. Yes, listening to Abresch, saying that, as we exchange
our miserable human will, which is only capable of evil, with the Divine
Will, we start living in a divine way, and our acts become like shining
suns...like stars...divine things! So they said: What are we doing
in the world? Wed rather spend our lives thinking about these things!
