Round of the Soul in the Divine Will
Do you want to know how to grow in the FIAT?
"By calling it in everything you do, whether natural or spiritual.
In fact, everything is in the Divine Will; therefore It wants to love together with you,
and if you call It, It gives you Its Love in your power in order to be loved; It gives you
Its sanctity to make yourself a saint, Its light to make Itself known and to eclipse your
weaknesses, miseries and passions, so that they may no longer have life in you, but only
Its Will, laying and forming Its Life in your little act
(From the Letters of Luisa Corato, January, 2, 1939)
Painting in the Church of the Rogation Fathers in Rome
…I saw the blessed soul of Father Hannibal before me, near my bed,
invested with light, suspended from the earth, fixing on me, but
without telling me one word. I too felt mute before him, and
Jesus added: “Look at him, how transformed he is. My Will
is light, and has transformed that soul into light; It is beautiful,
and has given him all the shades of perfect beauty; It is holy, and he
has been sanctified. My Will possesses all sciences, and his
soul has been invested by divine science. There is nothing which
my Will has not given to him. Oh! if all understood what Divine
Will means, they would put everything aside, they would care about
doing nothing else, and their whole commitment would be to do my Will

His words. References from the Writings
From a letter of
Archbishop Guiseppe Carata
Archbishop Emeritus of Trani/Bari/Bisceglie
& Co-Founder of the Canonically approved "Association Luisa Piccarreta"
"... During my many years of ministry in this Archdiocese
I have seen Luisa loved, crucified, risen, and I know my days will not end
until I see her exalted to the honor of the altar as, without any shadow of
doubt, she deserves. The theology of her spirituality brings confusion to
the intelligent, wonder and hope to the simple, and now brings a depth of
understanding to the Church which, as I have always held, could very well be
a new heavens and a new earth for all the faithful. The praises which I
offer do not come from having served as rector of our pontifical seminary
for fifteen years, but from many years of meditating our Lord’s own prayer –
let Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven!
Be gentle with our Luisa, for she is our pride and joy.
Honor the inheritance she has passed on to the world in her Writings. Pray
for her intercession before the Trinity for your sanctification in God’s
very own Spirit, for this is the reason why we were created. It is a matter
of glory – given, and shared – which will shepherd us through eternity. "If
you only knew what it means not to live in the divine Fiat you would die
rather than give life to your own will." These words, often spoken by our
Lord to Luisa, have led me through my own episcopacy, and now that I may
rest in my aged reflections, I can see that it is a wine in which I greatly
