If you don’t subscribe to Daniel’s blog, you will have missed this inspired talk he gave on November 11th at the 2017 Tampa Divine Will conference titled: The Restoration of All Things in Christ: On the Era of Peace and Living in the Divine Will. I invite you to watch it for your edification and for the advancement of the Kingdom. May His Kingdom come and come quickly!
May this post from 2011 spur us on to a greater desire to live only and always in the Divine Will. I invite you to visit my Divine Will Resources page if you are new to this “new and Divine holiness”.
I also at this time ask you to pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Robert Young, a gifted teacher of the Divine Will, who reached many primarily through his Radio Maria podcasts, but also through his retreats. He died suddenly on November 5, 2017. http://www.divinewilltallahassee.com/radio-archives
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Galatians 2:19-20 I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me.
“Oh, my dear children, my beloved!What have I not done for you? What have I held back that would be to your good? Know and believe that what I have done for you and what I have given to you is incalculable in human terms. Weak, pitiful creatures that you are your Creator loves you. Poor and helpless children that you are, your Redeemer gave his life for you. Lost and fickle children that you are, your Sanctifier fills you with all the gifts in the Divine treasury. What can I ask of you that would be too much? Live in my will. Ponder…

2 Corinthians 9:11-12 You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us; for the rendering of this ministry not only supplies the needs of the saints but also overflows with many thanksgivings to God.
“Beloved, are you lacking in anything? Have I ever refused you my blessing?”
No Lord, you are good and perfect in all your actions, whether I understand them or not.
“Then cease your worrying. I have you in the palm of my hand. Do as I do. If I have not withheld my blessings from you, then do not withhold your blessings from those around you. Confound even your enemies with a blessing. Let your generosity of spirit lead others to praise the God from whom all blessings flow. The blessings you give are the blessings you receive, shaken down and flowing over. Do not hesitate, but be generous as I am generous. If you feel you have nothing to give, lift up your hands, and I will fill them. Then you can add your thanks and praise to that of those I bless through you. The world is in great need of blessing. Be my willing instruments, dear children and you will know true joy. All heaven will rejoice with you. Shalom.”
O my beloved Abba, what a simple thing it is to bless, and how easy it is to neglect this holy practice. May our Mother and our Guardian Angels remind us daily to bless all those you send us, especially those most in need. Come Holy Spirit with your manifold blessings, and renew the face of the earth. Alleluia! Amen.
After recording the above message, I read this on another blog: “It will be the Great Miracle of light blinding Satan… The torrential flood of blessings about to jolt the world must begin with the small number of the most humble souls.” —Our Lady to Elizabeth Kindelmann http://www.theflameoflove.org
I just came across this post from 2011. Let us not let up our efforts to give life to the Church!
Haggai 1:9 …My house lies in ruins, while each of you hurries to his own house.
“Dear child, what must I think when my children are so busy about their own affairs that they cease to give life to the Church*? Am I to congratulate them on their successes? I tell you I cannot! My heart is shredded and my house is in tatters. Who will weep with me? My Son is crucified anew. Who will grieve with me? Little ones, do not be among those who flee from the hill of Calvary. Support my Son as he endures his agony. Do not run and hide, but remain steadfast. Cling to my Mother’s hem** and you will be strengthened. Show your love for Christ and his Bride. Do not be ashamed, but be willing to suffer anything rather than abandon your Lord in his hour of great need. There is…

Mark 7:14-15, 21 Then he called the crowd again and said to them, ‘Listen to me, all of you, and understand: there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile, but the things that come out are what defile.’ For it is from within, from the human heart, that evil intentions come.
“My beloved, you are assaulted daily by the sinful ways of this wicked age. Where can you go that your eyes are not assaulted by what is offensive? My child, do all you can to avoid these things, and guard against letting these things take root in your heart. What is passively seen is not sinful—what is actively dwelt upon is a grave danger. If it takes root in your heart, it will be a great struggle for you to uproot it. Now is the time for the utmost vigilance. Ask your holy angel to protect you. Place the Cross of Christ before and behind you—let it surround you. Confess often. Children, this is an age filled with grave spiritual danger. Offer all you can in the Divine Will for the sake of those who have let their guard drop. They are many, and even within the Church! I am much offended. Pray!”
O my dear Father, I am heartily sorry for my part in your offendedness. In the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, I repent of any lack of vigilance on my part. In your infinite mercy, send your holy angels to keep me from grave sin—from all sin! I ask all this in the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, on behalf of everyone from Adam to the last man. Lord Jesus, have mercy on us all! For the sake of His sorrowful passion, Lord God, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.
Blessings dear friends. I call to mind the message of September 4, which called us to “retreat to the tabernacle of (our) hearts and pray for the coming of the kingdom, for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, for the conversion of sinners, and for reparation to be made to (the Lord’s) much-wounded heart”. I leave it to each of you to decide how our Lady may be calling you to pray in preparation for the 100th anniversary of the October 13, 1917 miracle of the sun at Fatima. There are any number of prayer options to be found online. Here are a few more ideas, any of which may be prayed in conjunction with the Rosary, Our Lady’s specific Fatima request. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
Novena Option 1 (from a reader):
On the large beads of the Rosary:
My Jesus, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you. I ask pardon for all those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love you.
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore you profoundly. I offer you the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences, by which he is offended. Through the infinite merits of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg for the conversion of poor sinners.
On the small beads of the Rosary:
Jesus, Mary, Joseph, I love you, save souls!
End with three Glory Be’s.
Novena Option 2 (from a reader):
Our Lady of the Rosary, ask your Son Jesus to have mercy on us, and to give us His Peace.
Help us to heed your warning at Fatima, that we amend our lives and stop offending God, who is already offended by our sins. Our Lady of Fatima, Queen of the Holy Rosary, pray for us. Amen
Novena Option 3:
Most Holy Virgin, who has deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary, inspire our hearts with a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in it, we may gather the fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners, the conversion of Russia, and this favour that I so earnestly seek, (name your intention) as well as the promotion of the Fatima message in my country and around the world, for the greater glory of God, for your own honour, and for the good of all people. Amen
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be to the Father …
Litany of Our Lady of Fatima:
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for our dear country.
Our Lady of Fatima, sanctify our clergy.
Our Lady of Fatima, make our Catholics more fervent.
Our Lady of Fatima, guide and inspire those who govern us.
Our Lady of Fatima, cure the sick who confide in thee.
Our Lady of Fatima, console the sorrowful who trust in thee.
Our Lady of Fatima, help those who invoke your aid.
Our Lady of Fatima, deliver us from all dangers.
Our Lady of Fatima, help us to resist temptation.
Our Lady of Fatima, obtain for us all that we lovingly ask of thee.
Our Lady of Fatima, help those who are dear to us.
Our Lady of Fatima, bring back to the right road our erring brothers.
Our Lady of Fatima, give us back our ancient fervour.
Our Lady of Fatima, obtain for us pardon of our manifold sins and offences.
Our Lady of Fatima, bring all men to the feet of thy Divine Child.
Our Lady of Fatima, obtain peace for the world.
O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Let us Pray: O God of infinite goodness and mercy, fill our hearts with a great confidence in Thy dear Mother, whom we invoke under the title of Our Lady of the Rosary and our Lady of Fatima, and grant us by her powerful intercession all the graces, spiritual and temporal, which we need. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
Isaiah 55:6-9 Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake their way, and the unrighteous their thoughts; let them return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
“O my beloved! What sorrow I feel in my heart over all those who refuse my gift of mercy! Increase your prayers and sacrifices in the Divine Will for the sake of those who are in such grave spiritual danger. By this I do not necessarily mean that you need to do more—although you could—but I mean that you can do more in the Divine Will. That is, be more conscious of living each moment in the Divine Will. You have no idea what this accomplishes in the spiritual realm. Then keep this thought before you and do everything together with me as my Mother did. Let me find in you the sweet echo of her life lived in my holy Will. Never for one second did she depart from it, so that her every breath and heartbeat sanctified, purified, and glorified. Do this my children. I am near to you. Do not let your lack of attention rob the world of much-needed sanctification.”
O my Jesus! In the Divine Will grant me the grace to live each small moment in your will. Let your Mother’s sweet song resound in me and through me. May the Divine Will enter into and flow through everything I do, every beat, breath and movement, every thought, word, and work. Here I am Lord, I come to live in your most holy and Divine Will. Fiat! Amen.
Dream: We had a small piece of the Eucharistic Host that had turned to flesh. It was dried out, but suddenly began to “live” again. It became flesh and started to bleed profusely, a true miracle! I tried to show it to someone who belonged to a non-Catholic but Christian sect. She wanted nothing to do with it. I began to look for a suitable container for the Precious Blood that was now dripping out of the container. End of dream.
I always take dreams first of all as calls to prayer, this one a call perhaps to pray for those who refuse to believe in God’s glorious and miraculous presence in the Holy Eucharist. Miracle of miracles!
Lord Jesus, have mercy on those who do not recognize your miraculous presence in the Eucharist. In your mercy, lead all souls to know you, to love you, and to crave your intimate nearness in Holy Communion. I place each one in the Flame of Love of Mary Immaculate. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us! Amen.
Nehmiah 8:14 And they found it written in the law, which the Lord had commanded by Moses, that the people of Israel should live in booths (tabernacles) during the festival of the seventh month.
“Beloved, the Festival of Booths begins this year on October 4. In preparation for the 100th anniversary of my Mother’s appearance at Fatima, would you observe a time of reflection in the nine days preceding it, beginning on the first day of the Festival? Let each one decide how they will observe the novena—by fasting, prayer, or by retreating from the world. In some way, let my children retreat to the tabernacle of their hearts and pray for the coming of the kingdom, for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, for the conversion of sinners, and for reparation to be made to my much-wounded heart. Oh my children, do me this honor! I greatly desire it and the world greatly needs it. I will bless even the smallest effort. Do all in the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, on behalf of everyone and you will accomplish far more than you can imagine. You do not know how much I long to reign in men’s hearts. What joy when I do! Help me!”
O my Jesus, FIAT! Grant each of us the grace to know what is the best way for us to participate—as our daily duty allows. In the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, bless our efforts to cooperate with your unimaginable graces for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will! O Jesus! I long for this with the longing of our Mother, which irresistibly drew you to earth at your Incarnation. Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus—come to reign in our hearts! Amen.
(Note: The beginning of the Festival of Booths, October 4, also corresponds with the feast of the Transitus (passing to eternity) of St. Francis of Assisi. May he assist us as we contemplate what form our nine days of preparation will take. One suggestion is that we spend some time learning how to live more fully in the Divine Will through the writings of Luisa Piccarreta. Please see my page, “Divine Will Resources” for more information. May His kingdom come and come quickly!)
Jeremiah 9:12-14 Why is the land ruined and laid waste like a wilderness, so that no one passes through? And the Lord says: Because they have forsaken my law that I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, or walked in accordance with it, but have stubbornly followed their own hearts and have gone after the Baals, as their ancestors taught them.
“Beloved children, can it be more clear? Can I speak more plainly? This generation has purchased great destruction by their sin and disobedience. Are my ways unfair? I tell you they are not! I have written my laws on every heart. Those who close their hearts to my law seal their own destruction, for my laws are life-giving. By rejecting them and following the Baals of the age, they turn their backs on life. Stubbornly choosing death, they write the script of their own demise. Child, all this will happen—it must happen—so that the triumph of the Immaculate can come to pass. Pray for souls. Pray for the coming of the kingdom. Those faithful souls—and there are more than you know who have responded to grace—these souls are working with me in many ways. Can I ask more of them? How can I not when the stakes are so high? Offer me everything, dear children. So many are in eternal danger. Help me to save souls. Shalom.”
Beloved Father of my heart, in the Divine Will help me to respond more perfectly to grace so that I may be a tireless worker in the field of the Lord. In the Divine will I beg for more graces, and accept every grace it pleases you to give me. Help me, O Lord, to help you save souls! Maranatha! Amen.
