If Moses was able to save thousands by forming a bridge in a certain time and place, how much more good can you accomplish by circumventing time and space through the gift of living in the Divine Will?

Psalm 106:21-23 They forgot God, their Saviour, who had done great things in Egypt, wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome deeds by the Red Sea. Therefore he said he would destroy them—had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to turn away his wrath from destroying them.

“My beloved, do you see how I use my chosen ones? Their life may not be easy but the fruits of their faithfulness are beyond measure. My servant Moses, beloved and cherished by me, was given the power to turn back my wrath. This, my child, is no small thing. It speaks to my mercy, which does not want the sinner to perish, but to turn back to me and live. My faithful servant Moses worked mighty and wondrous deeds by his willingness to work in my power for my glory. His love for me and for his brothers and sisters formed a bridge that saved many. Now, my child, I want you to think about life in the Divine Will. I tell you it infinitely surpasses what I accomplished in and through Moses. This grace was reserved for your era and is meant to affect every era. As the Divine Will is infinite, existing in all times and places, then acts done in it defy time and space. It is a gift beyond human reckoning and far beyond the human imagination. Do not let this stop you from desiring this gift, from learning what you can, and from living in it and growing in it daily. If Moses was able to save thousands by forming a bridge in a certain time and place, how much more good can you accomplish by circumventing time and space through the gift of living in the Divine Will? Jettison all that impedes you! There is nothing more important and a great many souls are at stake. Pray, live, work, and act in my Will. Let us never be separated. Time is short—so short!”

Fiat, my holy and adorable God! Let it be done to me as you desire. In the Divine Will I offer all my prayers, sacrifices, sufferings, acts, works, words, breaths, heartbeats—my everything—in the Divine Will, and repeat this in the name of everyone from Adam to the last man, for the conversion of a great many sinners through the Flame of Love, and for the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Maranatha! Come Holy Spirit to reign in every heart! Amen.

Friends, some time ago, a prayer came to me as I strove to find new ways to offer my sufferings and all sufferings of all time in the Divine Will in reparation to the much-wounded heart of the Trinity. I have been praying it daily, but recently it has evolved into something more. So I have re-written it as follows and include it here, as it seems to fit with today’s message.

“Blessed Trinity of love, in the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, I offer you every shard of suffering ever endured from the time of the fall of Adam and Eve to the last man. I offer you these shards re-done perfectly in the Divine will, linked to the Precious Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in every chalice at every Mass ever offered and that ever will be offered. I offer this spiritual bouquet on behalf of everyone from Adam to the last man, so that in every shard of suffering of all time, you can find the perfect sacrifice of Christ offering perfect reparation for the sins of the age and of all ages. I make this offering for the conversion of all souls, and for all the intentions of the sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, that you may be loved, thanked, adored, praised, and consoled in every age by every person, with your own Adorable Will, for your glory. May your Kingdom come and come quickly! Fiat!”

We know that in God there are no limits and the more I immerse myself in the Divine Will teachings, the closer I come to glimpsing what it means that our God is infinite. No limits means NO limits! In this prayer, I imagine all the lines that connect every shard of suffering to every chalice at every Mass, including the Last Supper, as constituting a great “worldwide web” so thick and dense in time and space as to cover everything many times over, as every person in every time makes this same offering in the Divine Will.

I still don’t feel this prayer is complete and perhaps it never can be. However, I believe the Lord wishes me to share it today. May God’s holy will be accomplished in it. Blessed be God forever! Fiat!



How I long for the day when my will is exalted—and not vileness…

Psalm 12:7-8 You, O Lord, will protect us; you will guard us from this generation for ever. On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among humankind.

“O my beloved! How I long for the day when my will is exalted—and not vileness! Heaven weeps at the affront to my goodness, the rampant evil and unbridled self-will. But heaven also rejoices to see that so many are offering reparation and indeed are willing to suffer and even die for the faith rather than betray their loving Father. I tell you the rejoicing over one small act of reparation offered in the Divine Will far outweighs the magnitude of evil. For one small act done in the Divine Will is infinite and has infinite repercussions. Does this surprise you? Why should I not make available this unimaginable grace when evil seems to have the upper hand? Who is bigger, me working in you, or the enemy of your soul? Enter into my Will and do not leave, my children. The triumph is very near.”

O blessed, beloved Father, give me your hand and put me in the immensity of your Will and keep me there. Use me as you wish to cause great rejoicing in heaven. Make me blind and deaf to my own will so that I may desire only yours. I praise and thank you for the unimaginable grace of living and acting in your holy and adorable Will. Jesus I trust in you. Maranatha!


A time for prayer…

Dear friends, at this time I feel called to encourage you in prayer and to share with you some of the prayers I pray myself which I have now added to my Prayers and Novenas page. I will let the prayers speak to your hearts as God wills.

First is the Prayer of a Little, Abandoned Soul in the Divine Will, which I have been praying for myself and my loved ones, but since it has borne fruit, I have changed it to include all souls from Adam to the last man. I feel Our Lady is pleased that I have done so. May it grant you also many blessings.

Next is the Prayer to Re-Capture What Was Lost, a prayer I composed after reading this article from Spirit Daily. Prayers of this sort are most effective if one receives the sacraments of reconciliation and communion regularly. And of course, the Lenten fasting period gives prayers of deliverance even more power.

The third prayer new to the collection is my Divine Will Prayer After Communion. Of course there are a great many prayers for that time of grace, and the intimate prayer of the heart is always pleasing to our Lord. Here is one way you can add Divine Will prayers to your prayer.

One prayer which I added to my Prayers and Novenas page in 2016 is the Way of the Cross for Greater Trust, which includes excerpts from this blog. There is also a large print version, as well as a printable brochure–minus the excerpts–if you want to print and use it in your parish, with the permission of your priest of course. Most appropriate for Lent!

If you wish to refresh your desire for prayer, I encourage you to read these past messages, or to do a category search, in the search field of this blog, on the subject of prayer.

If I showed you what the world would look like without your prayers, you would be appalled…

Give me your pennies and I will open the storehouse of heavenly goods!

Those who have spurned and rejected me have need of many prayers and offerings…

By God’s grace, may our prayers and sacrifices during this holy season bear fruit in the Divine Will for all eternity. May His kingdom come and come quickly! Amen.


I long to heal the leprosy of sin that has filled the world with death and decay…

Mark 1:40-42 A leper came to (Jesus) begging him, and kneeling he said to him, ‘If you choose, you can make me clean.’ Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, ‘I do choose. Be made clean!’ Immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.

“Dear children, let this Scripture passage be your focus this Lent. Do you know how ardently I long to cleanse and heal you? Then come to me on your knees and ask with faith and trust. I will not refuse. But more than that, I long to heal the leprosy of sin that has filled the world with death and decay. The stench permeates everything and only the fervent incense that rises from those few faithful keeps me from annihilating my beloved creation. So offer this leper’s prayer most fervently in the Divine Will on behalf of all—even the worst sinners. The bandages are being removed; the festering wounds are being exposed. Children, pour the balm of the Divine Will over the world. Let our desires merge and fuse. Let my longing be your longing, and let your prayers perfectly reflect the Divine Will. Conversion is what I desire, not condemnation. You, my children, are being called anew to participate in the salvation of souls. Enter into the Divine Will and pray!”

O Blessed Trinity of Love, fusing myself in the Divine Will I praise you for your words of love, mercy and great hope! I fall on my knees and repeat the leper’s prayer: Lord Jesus, if you choose you can make me and the whole world clean! I trust in your merciful response, and await with joyful hope the renewal of creation and the coming of the kingdom of the Divine Will. I love you and I thank you with your own Divine Will, for the unimaginable gift of being called to live and act with you in your most holy Will for the salvation of souls. Keep me faithful and attentive, that your kingdom may come and come quickly. Amen.


Look to the horizon; the dawn will surely come…

Isaiah 16:4b-5 When the oppressor is no more, and destruction has ceased, and marauders have vanished from the land, then a throne shall be established in steadfast love in the tent of David, and on it shall sit in faithfulness a ruler who seeks justice and is swift to do what is right.

Maranatha! Come Lord, and do not delay!

“My child, there is still much more to endure before that glorious day. Do not become despondent or lose hope but read the signs of the times. Look to the horizon; the dawn will surely come. If I seem to delay, do not despair, but know and believe in the unfathomable goodness and mercy of your God. No child who entrusts their cares to me will be disappointed. Do your part with prayer and sacrifice. Offer all in the Divine Will and you will be amazed at what I can do with your pitiful offerings. Do not be discouraged, but soldier on in hope and trust. I am with you always—to the end of the age.”

Fiat my Lord! May it be done to me and through me according to and in the Divine Will. I place everything in your will—all that I have, do, think, and am—and redo all in the Divine Will so that your kingdom may come and come quickly. Save souls, O merciful Lord! I love you! Amen.



Much reparation must be made to the much-wounded heart of the Triune God…

Nehemiah 9:1-2 Now on the twenty-fourth day of this month the people of Israel were assembled with fasting and in sackcloth, and with dust on their heads. Then those of Israelite descent separated themselves from all foreigners, and stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their ancestors.

“My beloved, much reparation must be made to the much-wounded heart of the Triune God. I am calling anyone who will listen to take up the banner of penance, in order to atone for the great and many sins of the age—indeed of all ages. The gift of living in the Divine Will makes possible unheard-of graces for this purpose. The angels are amazed and the Gloriana* sings my praises continually over it. Do not let the ordinariness of its appearance cause you to discount it. You pray in the Divine Will and you feel nothing special, but I tell you, heaven and hell are shaken and the demons quake. Do not be discouraged. Pray more. Learn more. Be attentive, and live your every moment in the Divine Will to offer reparation. You will be hastening the coming of my glorious kingdom. Why the delay? There is nothing more important. Pray!”

O my merciful Lord, forgive my distraction! In the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, in the name of everyone from Adam to the last man, I re-do all my distractions to make my every living moment, the joys, sorrow, pains, thoughts words, and deeds become acts done in the Divine Will for the sake of reparation to the Holy Trinity and for the hastening of the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, blessed Trinity of love, may your kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Come quickly! Amen.

(*Gloriana: The angels and saints in perfect communion with the Blessed Trinity; the perfect unity of heaven.)


Now is the time for the utmost vigilance…

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.


Fatima Novena October 4-12…

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):

Fatima Chaplet

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




Do not let your lack of attention rob the world of much-needed sanctification…

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.



In preparation for he 100th anniversary of my Mother’s appearance at Fatima, would you observe a time of reflection in the nine days preceding it…

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!)
