Divine Will – What’s it all about?
Experience the Divine Will: Let God’s Will Unfold Within You
Discover the extraordinary gift of the Divine Will that God wishes to bestow upon the world. It goes beyond simply doing God’s Will; it is about truly possessing His Will and allowing Him to fulfill His desires within us, with our full consent.
A New Era Begins: September 8, 1889
On this remarkable day, Luisa Piccaretta received the precious Gift directly from Jesus Himself, marking the dawn of the Kingdom of the Divine Will on Earth. For centuries, Christians have heartfeltly prayed for God’s Will to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven through the Lord’s Prayer. Now, the Gift of the Divine Will is within reach of everyone, we are invited to embrace it wholeheartedly.
Embracing Perfect Love and Glory for God
The purpose of the Divine Will is to enable every member of the human family to offer perfect love and bring glory to God. Through this divine connection, we align ourselves with the order, place, and purpose for which we were created by God Himself. It is a powerful journey of rediscovering our true essence.
The Book of Heaven: 36 Volumes of Wisdom
Luisa, inspired by Jesus Himself, has penned The Book of Heaven. In its 36 volumes, she beautifully captures the essence of this divine encounter. The title, given by Jesus Himself, resonates with the call for humanity to reconnect with its true purpose. Volume 19, dated August 27, 1926, holds profound insights within its pages.

Who is Luisa Piccarreta
Luisa Piccarreta, also known as the ‘Little Daughter of the Divine Will’, was a remarkable Catholic mystic whose legacy continues to inspire. Born on a momentous day, 23rd April 1865, (on this day 130 years later, Pope John Paul II will proclaim Divine Mercy Sunday) she entered this world in Corato, Bari province Italy, surrounded by divine providence.
From her early years, a sense of sacredness and holiness enveloped her being, as she sought solace in her mother’s embrace to escape the clutches of her vivid fears and insecurities. Shyness gripped her soul, causing her to retreat from the world, finding refuge in the quiet corners of her imagination and the sanctuary of her spiritual journey.
It was in those tender moments of vulnerability that Jesus revealed His love and jealousy of her, desiring to separate her from everything and everyone (like Sr. Clare Crockett said in Alone with Christ Alone “We have to be saints! It’s all or nothing! We can’t remain in mediocrity. We have to fight with all our strength against the obstacles that impede us from growing.”) , guiding her on a path infused with purpose and divine connection.
Today, we honor her life and her profound devotion as we remember the proclamation of Divine Mercy Sunday, 130 years later by Pope John Paul II. Discover the extraordinary story of Luisa Piccarreta, a beacon of faith and a testament to the power of surrendering all to the Divine Will.
In 1947, shortly before her 82nd birthday, she died in the odour of sanctity. In November 1994, a cause for Beatification and Canonisation was opened, and a positive judgement was issued in 2010. Although Luisa was considered by the Church to have lived a life of heroic virtue, she still requires firstclass miracles.
Divine Will Orthodoxy
The following excerpt is taken from Daniel O’Connor’s website.
Jesus’ approved revelations on the Divine Will (the life mission of Saint Hannibal di Francia) to the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta – herself the subject of a recent strongly positive Vatican-published, Cardinal-endorsed biography – are unquestionably authentic and are entirely in accordance with Catholic Orthodoxy. The Church’s competent ecclesial authorities, whose mandate alone it is to render such judgments, have repeatedly affirmed this assessment (cf. Part 4).
Unfortunately, however, a few followers (and promoters!) of these revelations say things opposed to Catholic Orthodoxy due to their own flawed interpretations of Luisa’s revelations (interpretations which are not only unorthodox, but also stand in contrast to the actual text of what Jesus told Luisa.)
This post, however, is much longer. As usual with my longer posts, I’ve added each section’s heading in extra large font and set up the coloring/bolding/etc. to facilitate easy skimming and scrolling to the parts each reader might find most relevant, even if he isn’t interested in reading this in its entirety.

“That Angel in Corato” – she would, in the future, be The Greatest Saint of all time, because, she lived in the Divine Will with Jesus
