those voices so dear to
You, and do You not hear the petition of the Queen of Suffering
herself? Today, the day of Your Death, is also the day of Your
victories, of Your triumph, grant us then, before leaving Limbo, the
triumph of Your Divine Will over all human wills.
The soul follows Jesus in the act of the
Resurrection and asks of Him that the human will be overthrown,
and resurge in the Divine Will.
My Jesus, now You direct Yourself to the sepulcher to triumph over
death and make Your Most Holy Humanity resurrect from the dead.
What a solemn moment! To celebrate it and to obtain the
resurrection of Your Divine Will in all creatures, I want to hide my
“I love You” everywhere: in the sepulcher, in the Act in which You
rose from the dead, and in the same light of glory that surrounds
You. And You, My Love, in order to celebrate this date of
jubilation, conquer our human will and make Your Victorious Will
resurge forever in us.
The soul is present at the Ascension of Jesus
and asks to be able to sing always: “May the
Kingdom of Your Divine Will come to earth.”
My risen Jesus, while, with Your triumphant entrance into Heaven
You open the doors which were closed for so many centuries to
poor humanity, I imprint my “I love You” over those eternal doors.
By that same
blessing that You gave to all the disciples who were
present at the celebration of Your Ascension, I ask You to bless all
human wills, so that they can know and appreciate the gift of the
Life lived in Your Divine Will. My Love, already seated at the right
hand of the Father, I ask You to leave the doors to Your Heavenly
dwelling always open, so that I can come unceasingly to Your feet,
climb up into Your arms and, untiringly, repeat my canticle of love:
“Make the Kingdom of Your Holy Will come and Your Will be
done on earth as in Heaven!”
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be for the intentions of the Holy
Pray for us, Queen of the Divine Will, so that the Divine Will
Reigns on earth as It does in Heaven.
In finishing this Rounds of the soul in the Divine Will we would
like to invite you, to pray at least part of this daily, as in this way,
not only will you correspond in love to Our God, but also you will
be tightening the links of love with all His Works and taking
possession of them; and His Reign, of which these Works form part,
will extend itself in your soul. The meditations and prayers of this
Chaplet are taken from the Book of the Rounds of the Soul in the
Divine Will which Luisa wrote.
With the help of this little Chaplet, you
can complement what you have learned to do in it.
Once you have mastered the intention and the spirit with which
these rounds are done, guided by the Holy Spirit, you be able to do
your own rounds or journeys in the Works of God.
To finish, we would like to insist on the importance, not only in
doing this exercise of love in our prayers, but also that this attitude
should remain in our hearts throughout the day, in all our actions.
One truth which is repeated throughout the writings of Luisa and
which is very important is that the Divine Will wants not only to
enclose all of His Works in us, but also to extend Its Reign, that is to
say, form Its Divine Life in ours.
Do you want to know how to
grow in the Fiat, that is to say: how to Live in the Divine Will
during the day? Luisa responds in one of her letters:
“Call the Divine Will in all that you do, whether it is a natural thing, or a
spiritual one. Because everything is in the Divine Will, and It wants to
Love together with you.If you call the Divine Will, It will grant you
Its Love to love It, It will give you Its holiness to sanctify you, the
light to know It and to make disappear weaknesses, miseries,
passions, so that they will no longer have life in you, but that only
the Divine Will extends Itself and forms Its Life in your every little
act.” (From the letters of Luisa, Corato, 2-1-1939)
