Invocation to the Divine Will – Prevenient Prayer 

I am nothing. God is all. Father I love you.

Come Divine Will to think in my mind, to circulate in my blood, to look with my eyes, to listen in my ears, to speak in my voice, to breath in my breathing, to beat in my heart, to move in my motion.

Come Divine Will to suffer in my suffering and may my soul consumed and fused with Your Will be a living crucifix immolated for the Glory of the Father.

Come Divine Will to pray in me and offer this prayer to yourself as mine to satisfy for the prayers of all and give to the Father the Glory that all creatures should give Him.

Come Divine Will to infuse in me the Faith of Mary Most Holy in order to possess You as she possesses You.

Come Divine Will to infuse in me the Hope of Mary Most Holy in order to desire You as she desires You.

Come Divine Will to infuse in me the Charity of Mary Most Holy in order to love You as she loves You.

Come Divine Will to adore in me and since Your Will  multiplies acts to the infinite thus I intend to give you the satisfaction as if all had assisted at Holy Mass and give to all the Fruit of the Sacrifice and impetrate Salvation for all.

O Supreme Will come to reign upon the earth. Invest all generations. Win and conquer all and do not delay any longer. Amen.

—based on writing of Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta

“Why meditate on the Passion?”

“Let him who desires to attain union with God keep the eyes of his soul ever fixed on Him who hangs dying on the Cross. ’Tis from those wounds of the Savior that man draws power to suffer, not with patience merely but with joy.”

– St. Bonaventure

“A single tear shed in memory of the Passion of Christ outbalances a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, or a year’s fast on bread and water.”

– St. Augustine

“You please Me most when you meditate on My Sorrowful Passion.”  (1512)

– Jesus to St. Faustina

“There is more merit to one hour of meditation on My sorrowful Passion than there is to a whole year of flagellation that draws blood.”  (369)

– Jesus to St. Faustina

During Holy Mass, I saw the Lord Jesus nailed upon the cross amidst great torments.  A soft moan issued from His Heart.  After some time, He said, I thirst.  I thirst for the salvation of souls. Help Me, My daughter, to save souls.  Join your sufferings to My Passion and offer them to the heavenly Father for sinners.  (1032)

– Jesus to St. Faustina

Excerpts from Luisa’s writing

“The Hours of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ” by Luisa Piccarreta

“O, how happy I would be if even one soul were to do these Hours of my Passion in every city or town! I would find Myself in each city or town, then; and my justice, which is so greatly offended in these times, would be partially appeased!”
– Jesus dictated to Luisa


What did Saint Annibale Di Francia and Saint Pope Pius X have in common?

“Several witnesses relate that one day Father Annibale came to the house of Luisa more content than ever, and said that he had brought this book to the Holy Father, Pope (Saint) Pious X, who had received him several times in private audience. Father Anniable was reading him one of the Hours (that of the Crucifixion), when the Pope interrupted, saying: “Not this way, Father, but kneeling one must read. It is Jesus Christ that is speaking.” Finally, Father Annibale, as Censor of the writings, obtained the Imprimatur from His Excellency the Archbishop of Trani for the volumes written by Luisa (at that time there were already nineteen). 


“Finding myself in my usual state, I was meditating on the Passion of Our Lord; and while I was doing this, He came and told me:”

“My daughter, I feel great comfort when someone meditates on my Passion with sorrow and compassion for Me. I feel also recompensed for all that I suffered during my Passion. By always meditating on it, the soul keeps preparing divine food. This food contains many different spices, each of them enriching her dishes with distinctive flavors and benefits.”

“So, if in the course of my Passion my enemies tied Me with ropes and chains, the compassionate soul releases Me and gives Me freedom. If my enemies despised, dishonored, and spat on Me, this soul cleans Me of that spittle, and honors Me. If they stripped Me of my clothes and scourged Me, she clothes and cures Me. If they crowned Me with thorns, mocking Me as king, embittering my mouth with gall, and crucifying Me, she crowns Me with glory, and honors Me as King, filling my mouth with sweet and delicious food—the remembrance of my own works. Also, by meditating on all my pains, this soul un-nails Me from the Cross, and makes Me rise again in her heart.”

“And every time she does so, I shall give her a new life of grace as recompense—she shall become my food and I shall become her food. A continual meditation on my Passion is indeed the thing that pleases Me the most.”    (Vol. 7: November 9, 1906)

“My daughter, the soul who always meditates on my Passion forms a spring within her heart; and the more she meditates, the larger this spring becomes. And just as the waters that spring up in the wild are public waters, in the same way, the spring of the Passion formed in her heart will benefit everyone: both the soul and all the other creatures—giving Me great glory and honor.”

“And I asked: “Tell me, my Lord, what will You give as recompense to those who meditate on the HOURS OF THE PASSION in the way that You taught me?”

“And He answered: My daughter, I will look at this pious exercise of the HOURS as a work performed not by them but by Myself. I will give them all my merits, as if I were suffering the Passion at that very moment. And they will receive all the benefits of my agony, according to the dispositions of their souls. This is my reward while they are living on earth—and there could be no greater gift this side of Heaven.”

“But there is much more. In fact, in the Heavenly Fatherland, I will call these souls before Me, and I will pierce them with darts of joy while they reciprocate with as many darts of love aimed at Me—the number of these darts being equivalent to the number of hours spent in meditation on the HOURS OF THE PASSION. What a sweet enchantment this will be for all the Blessed!”   (Vol. 11: April 10, 1913)

Our Method

To practice the great gift of living In the Divine Will found in the mystical writings of Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta. 

1/7/1930 – Vol. 27 Exchange of gifts between God and the creature. How one who lives in the Divine Will is the Divine bank upon earth and forms a nimbus of Heaven.

I was feeling all abandoned in the Supreme Fiat, and I thought to myself: “What could I give to my beloved Jesus?”

And He, immediately: “Your will.”

And I: “My Love, I gave it to You, and having given it, I believe I am no longer free to give it to You, because it is Yours.”

And Jesus: “My daughter, every time you would like to give Me the gift of your will, I accept it as a new gift, because I leave the human will in its free willing, in such a way that the creature can be in the act of giving it to Me always. And I accept it as many times for as many times as she gives it to Me, because she sacrifices herself as many times for as many times as she gives Me the gift of it. And in seeing that the creature is constant in giving Me her continuous gift, I see that there is true decision on her part, and she loves and esteems the Gift of My Will; and I, just as she gives Me the continuous gift of hers, give her the continuous Gift of Mine; and expanding her capacity—because the creature is incapable of taking the whole endlessness of My Volition—I keep increasing, continuously, more sanctity, more love, more beauty, more light and more knowledge of My Divine Will.

“So, in the exchange we make—you, of your will, and I, of Mine—we double the gifts, and it remains bound so many times for as many times as we make the exchange of it. Therefore, I always have something to give you, and you too, because in My Will things never end, they arise in every instant; and as you gave your will to Me, at the contact with Mine, yours has acquired the prerogative of Mine, of being able to give itself continuously to your Jesus.”

Then, I was following the acts of the Divine Will, accompanying them with my “I love You;” and I could comprehend the great difference in greatness and magnitude of the works of the Divine Fiat and of my little “I love You.” Oh! How little I felt, and truly just newly born before that Fiat that can do everything and embraces everything.

And my lovable Jesus, clasping me in His arms, told me: “My daughter, one who lives in My Divine Will is My rich bank upon earth; and as you say your ‘I love You,’ I invest it with My own, and from little it becomes great, it diffuses in the infinite, in such a way that the riches of My Love become immeasurable, and I deposit them in the bank of your soul. And as you continue your acts, I invest them with Mine, and I deposit them in your bank so as to have My Divine bank upon earth. Therefore, your little acts done in My Divine Volition serve Me in order to give Me something to do, to make Our Divine Qualities, that are infinite, flow in your little acts, that are finite, mix them together and make of them as many acts of Ours, depositing them in the bank of your soul, so that Our bank may find in you its Heaven.

“Don’t you know that one who must live in Our Divine Fiat must be a nimbus of Heaven? Such that, as it lowers itself upon earth—but so much as to eliminate any distance—at that point of the earth where there is the fortunate creature, one must see Heaven, not earth. Nor would My Divine Will be without Its Heaven; It Itself would form It for Itself, and the drapes of Heaven would lower themselves to pay homage to that Fiat from which they recognize their existence. Therefore, all the Blessed remain stupefied in seeing a nimbus of Heaven upon earth; but their stupefaction ceases immediately, when they see that that Divine Will that forms their Heaven and all their happiness is present as reigning in that creature, precisely at that point where they see that the drapes of Heaven, lowering themselves, surround that creature to sing the praises of My Supreme Fiat.

“Therefore, be attentive, My daughter, and if I tell you this, it is to let you know the great gift of making My Will known to you, and how It wants to form Its Kingdom in you, so that you may thank Me and be grateful.”                                                           

 Keep The Divine Attitude
Doing All for and In Jesus



Oh august and Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we praise and thank You for the gift of holiness of your faithful servant Luisa Piccarreta. She lived, Oh Father, in Your Divine Will,

becoming, under the action of the Holy Spirit, in conformity with Your Son, obedient even to death on the cross, victim and host pleasing to You, thus cooperating in the work of Redemption of mankind. Her virtues of obedience, humility, supreme love for Christ and the Church,

lead us to ask You for the gift of her glorification on earth, so that Your glory may shine before all, and Your kingdom of truth, justice and love, may spread all over the world in the particular charisma of the  Fiat Voluntas tua sicut in Caelo et in terra. We appeal to her merits to obtain from You, Most Holy Trinity, the particular grace for which we pray to You with the intention to fulfill your Divine Will. Amen. 3 Glory be, Our Father, Queen of All Saints, pray for us.

What does the Catechism say about Private Revelation
Throughout the ages, there have been so-called “private” revelations, some of which have been recognized by the authority of the Church. They do not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not their role to improve or complete Christ’s definitive Revelation, but to help live more fully by it in a certain period of history. Guided by the magisterium of the Church, the sensus fidelium (sense of the faithful) knows how to discern and welcome in these revelations whatever constitutes an authentic call of Christ or his saints to the Church. (84, 93).

Christian faith cannot accept “revelations” that claim to surpass or correct the Revelation of which Christ is the fulfillment, as is the case in certain non-Christian religions and also in certain recent sects which base themselves on such “revelations.”

The Writing of Luisa Piccarreta
Luisa’s life took a decisive turning point at the age of about 12, when there was a mysterious state of suffering which confined her to bed and left her in a state of loss of consciousness.

Despite medical treatment, it was clear that only the blessing of a priest enabled her to come out of her ‘usual state’. Luisa offered her suffering for the benefit o humanity accepting until her death the complete confinement to bed that lasted about 70 years.

Her particular condition convinced the Archbishop of Trani to entrust her permanently to the spiritual care of a priest. Of fundamental importance was the contribution of Fr. Gennaro De Gennaro. After having heard what happened to her during her states of loss of consciousness, he gave her the “obedience” to write the “Diary”, a task to which Luisa will remain faithful, with great reluctance, writing about 10,000 pages from February 28, 1899 to December 28, 1938. The main theme is the Divine Will and how we can live in It.

‘The Kingdom of my Divine Will in the midst of creatures. Book of Heaven. The call of the creature to the order, the place and the purpose for which he was created by God’.

The Title Jesus Gave to Luisa (8/27/1926 – V.19)

Excerpt from “Book of Heaven”

“For as long as the soul is in the Divine Will, so much of Divine Life can she say she lives on earth. The acts in the Divine Will are the simplest acts, but, because they are simple, they communicate themselves to all.” Jesus to Luisa (9/8/1916 – Vol. 11)

This morning, after Communion, I felt that my lovable Jesus absorbed me completely in His Will in a special way, and I swam inside of It. But who can say what I felt? I have no words to express myself. Then Jesus told me: “My daughter, for as long as the soul is in my Will, so much of Divine Life can she say she lives on earth. How I like it when I see that the soul enters into my Will to live Divine Life in It! I like very much to see souls who repeat in my Will what my Humanity did in It! I received Communion, I received Myself in the Will of the Father, and with this I not only repaired everything, but finding immensity and all-seeingness of everything and everyone in the Divine Will, I embraced all, I gave Communion to all; and in seeing that many would not take part in the Sacrament and that the Father was offended for they did not want to receive my Life, I gave to the Father the satisfaction and the glory as if all had received Communion, giving to the Father the satisfaction and the glory of a Divine Life for each one. You too – receive Communion in my Will, repeat what I did, and in this way you will not only repair everything, but will give Me to all as I intended to give Myself to all, and will give Me the glory as if all had received Communion. My Heart feels moved in seeing that, unable to give Me anything from her own which is worthy of Me, the creature takes my things, she makes them her own, she imitates the way I did them, and to please Me, she gives them to Me. And I, in my delight, keep repeating: “Brava, my daughter, you have done exactly what I did.”

Then He added: “The acts in my Will are the simplest acts, but, because they are simple, they communicate themselves to all. The light of the Sun, because it is simple, is light of every eye – yet the Sun is one. One act alone in my Will, like most simple light, diffuses itself in every heart, in every work, in everyone – yet the act is one. My very Being, because It is most simple, is one single act, but an act which contains everything; it has no feet but is the step of all; no eyes, but is the eye and the light of all; it gives life to everything, but with no effort, with no toil, yet it gives the act of operating to all. So, the soul in my Will becomes simple, and together with Me she multiplies in all, and does good to all. Oh, if all comprehended the immense value of the acts, even the littlest, done in my Will – they would let not one act escape them!”

Statement about participation: The meetings last one hour and are held monthly, each first Saturday, in the church following the 8:00 am Mass and Rosary. It is important to know that lessons do naturally build upon each other, but if you are unable to attend one of the monthly meetings you will not be “left behind” as each topic is independent. Meetings are scheduled to last one hour.

The content is simple because Jesus doesn’t make things complicated.

Just as Jesus gave St. Faustina the prayer of Divine Mercy and the Divine Mercy Chaplet, He gave servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta, he Prevenient Act and Actual Act on May 27, 1922.

Prevenient Prayer

I am nothing, God is all. Father, I love you.

Come Divine Will to think in my mind, to circulate in my blood, to look with my eyes, to listen in my ears, to speak in my voice, to breath in my breathing, to beat in my heart, to move in my motion.

Come Divine Will to suffer in my suffering and may my soul, consumed and fused with Your Will, be a living crucifix immolated for the Glory of the Father.

Come Divine Will to pray in me and offer this prayer to yourself as mine to satisfy for the prayers of all and give to the Father the Glory that all creatures should give Him.

Come Divine Will to infuse in me the Faith of Mary Most Holy in order to possess You as she possesses You.

Come Divine Will to infuse in me the Hope of Mary Most Come Divine Will to infuse in me the Hope of Mary Most Holy in order to love You as she loves You.

Come Divine Will to adore in me and since Your Will multiplies acts to the infinite thus I intend to give you the satisfaction as if all had assisted at Holy Mass and give all to the Fruit of Sacrifice and impetrate Salvation for all.

O Supreme Will come to reign upon the earth. Invest all generations. Win and conquer all and do not delay any longer. Amen. – Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta

The Prevenient Act and Actual Act

I was thinking to myself: “If one act done in His Will is so great, how many of them, alas, do I let escape!’ And my sweet Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, there is the prevenient act and the actual act. The prevenient act is when the soul, at the first rising of the day, fixes her will in Mine, and decides and confirms that she wants to live and operate only in my Volition. She anticipates all of her acts and makes them all flow in my Will. With the prevenient will, my Sun rises, my Life remains duplicated in all of her acts, as though in one single act; and this makes up for the actual act. However, the prevenient act can be shaded – obscured by the human ways, by one’s own will, by self-esteem, by negligence and other things, which are like clouds before the Sun, that render its light less vivid on the face of the earth.

On the other hand, the actual act is not subject to clouds; on the contrary, it has the virtue of dispelling the clouds, if there are any, and it makes many more suns rise, in which my Life, is duplicated, with such vividness of light and heat as to form as many new suns, one more beautiful than the other. However, both of them are necessary: prevenient act gives the hand, disposes and forms the plane for the actual act; the actual act preserves and expands the plane prevenient.” – “Book of Heaven” by Servant of God, Luisa Piccarrenta (5/27/1922 V.14)
