THE DIVINE MERCY or THE DIVINE WILL (LP)?
Opinion Based On Private Revelation - Don't Shoot the Messenger!

Saint Sister Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska            

Servium or Nonservium? This is the question.

"Satan will tell you 99 truths if he can slip in 1 lie."

"The Devil's finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist." - Charles Baudelaire

"If a revelation “departed ever so little from Holy Scripture, I would see it in a snare of the Devil. This mark alone so clearly unveils the wiles of the evil spirit that, were all the world to assure me that it is the spirit of God, I would still not believe it.”"
- St. Teresa of Avila (Jesus), Doctor of the Church

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy in Song - Blest & Broken

The Divine Mercy or The Divine Will? It Can't Be Both As That Does Not Make Sense

The Divine Will (Luisa Piccarretta – 1899-1938) private revelations and writings (Book of Heaven) came out before and during The Divine Mercy (St Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska – 1934-1938) private revelations and writings (Divine Mercy In My Soul, Diary).  To begin with, I find this timing to be strange. Also, it is obvious to me (and was obvious to me from the very beginning I heard about it), that these two private revelations contradict each other. In fact I have felt this way since I first learned about  “The Divine Will” in 2018.

Furthermore, I had a mystical experience following my very first experience with this back in 2018. However, until now I have kept my opinion mostly to myself. Why you ask? Well the reason is, because I felt I needed more time for prayer and discernment. However, recently I have had some people at my parish approach me and ask me whether or not I have a devotion to “The Divine Will.” As one would assume, my answer was a definite “No”, considering my opinion on the matter based on my own mystical experience and research that followed.  My own private revelations  of  “The Divine Mercy Image” are testimony to “The Divine Mercy” message and devotion (St. Faustina).

My private revelation with "The Divine Will" (vs "The Divine Mercy") was added on December 1, 2021 and can be found towards the end of this page.

Grand Deception of Satan

It seems the Holy Spirit is prompting me at this time to share my personal opinion of “The Divine Will” with others. Personally, I do not recommend this devotion. In fact, I have formed the opinion that it is heresy and of a diabolical nature (grand deception of Satan).  

If we are indeed living in “The Divine Will” it follows in my mind that we don’t need “The Divine Mercy” – the reason being that “when one receives this new "Sacrament" of the Divine Will, the human will ceases to function, as such and the Divine Will acts in the creature in such a way that the action is purely divine.” (Fr. Terrance (Terry) Staples)

In essence, we no longer have free will. Also, it follows that we are no longer responsible for our actions which would make us robots of God. I find this concept to be very disturbing as our free will is one of the greatest gifts God has given each and every one of us.

If you look around us worldwide, you will notice our free will is currently under attack in all aspects of society. How does that make you feel? Uncertain? Confused? Tired? Sad? Anxious? Afraid? Depressed? Uncomfortable? Hopeless? Frustrated? Angry? Undignified? Controlled? Cancelled? Dehumanized Etc ....??? Does totalitarianism ring a bell? That should be a clear sign to you that Satan and his demons are in our midst and that we are in an intense spiritual battle for souls.

Satan wants you under "his boots" you could say when it should be the other way around. Notice that Satan is depicted under the feet of both The Virgin Mary, Mother of God and St. Michael The Archangel. Well Satan wants it the other way around - remember he is the one that challenged God when he said "I will be like the most High!" He is a divination spirit and immensely smarter than we are. He indeed will become your God if you fall for his great deception.

Now is not the time, to sit there in spiritual sloth and do nothing! God wants us to act to save souls. Satan knows this is his last opportunity to take souls so he is very busy! However, have no fear, St. Michael and the rest of the heavenly army is also in our midst. Pray The Rosary,The Divine Mercy Chaplet and The St. Michael Prayer daily! While doing so, ask the Lord to cover you with His Precious Blood to shield you from Satan's deception.

The Divine Will Devotion  Encourages Spiritual Sloth and Delusions of Grandeur

Servium is Latin for "I will serve." This was the cry of St. Michael the Archangel as a response to Lucifer's "I will not serve" (Non servium) when God put the angels to the test. In essence, Lucifer wanted to be "God" ... to me it is Lucifer's voice resounding in this alleged "Sacrament of The Divine Will" (LP) for upon asking for and receiving this gift one would surely be "like God" and therefore would have no need for "The Divine Mercy" message and devotion. Following from this, there would be no need for us to serve our brothers and sisters nor God. Therefore, there would be no judgement no hell, and no purgatory as we would already be like God (holy). Heaven would be guaranteed. Also, there would be no real need of the Sacraments, nor Prayer. This ideology is totally against the teachings of Jesus Christ in the scriptures and the doctrine of the Catholic Church.

The "Divine Will" (LP) devotion encourages spiritual sloth and a loveless and merciless approach to our fellow man and God which is a mortal sin - God is not a "McDonald's" in that "He does it all for you" (The 2 Greatest Commandments given to us by Jesus is proof of this)! The truth is, it is our free will that moves our God given graces which kindles our faith and love and mercy (Jesus is"The Divine Mercy") in our souls. This alone is our path to holiness. The choice is ours as to whether we want to follow the light (holy) and serve Jesus Christ or stay in the dark (sin) and serve Satan.

"And thou saidst in thy heart: I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God, I will sit in the mountain of the covenant, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the height of the clouds, I will be like the most High." ( Prophecy of Isaias (Isaiah) 14:13-14)

What The Saints Have To Say Regarding Private Revelations

Saint Paul The Apostle (Feast Day: June 29)

“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel other than that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema!” (Galatians 1:9)

Saint Thomas Aquinas, a Doctor of the Church   (Feast Day: January 28)

Saint Thomas Aquinas taught that all public revelation ended with the death of Saint John the Apostle. Private revelations cannot surpass, correct, improve, fulfill, complete, or perfect public revelation.

Saint Teresa of Avila, a Doctor of the Church: (Feast Day: October 15)

In her autobiography she writes,

” I only regard a revelation as true if it is in no way contrary to Holy Scripture and to the laws of the church, which we are obliged to follow.” The soul favoured with extraordinary graces “feels capable of confounding all the demons in order to uphold the smallest of the truths taught by the Church!” If a revelation “departed ever so little from Holy Scripture, I would see it in a snare of the Devil …  in such a case, it is not necessary to look for any other signs nor even to examine what manner of spirit it is.  This mark alone so clearly unveils the wiles of the evil spirit that, were all the world to assure me that it is the spirit of God, I would still not believe it.”

Saint Pope John Paul II, Homily at Mass in Fatima, May 13,1982 (Feast Day: October 22)

“Convert and repent
6. The Church has always taught and continues to proclaim that God's revelation was brought to completion in Jesus Christ, who is the fullness of that revelation, and that "no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord" (Dei Verbum, 4). The Church evaluates and judges private revelations by the criterion of conformity with that single public Revelation.”

Fr. Terrance (Terry) Staples (Catholic Priest) & Tim Staples (Catholic Apologist) - Brothers

 I have recently been asked, and I often get asked, about Luisa Piccarreta and “the Kingdom of the Divine Will.” The Church has neither approved nor formally condemned these “private revelations,” the teachings contained therein, and the movement based on the teaching. All is under investigation by the Church. But to answer the question of what I think, I am going to post two articles my brother, Fr. Terry Staples, wrote concerning the topic some years ago.

In a nutshell, I will say I am very skeptical that this private revelation has heaven as its source. In fact, I believe it is a great and very dangerous deception. I will repeat what my brother makes clear in his articles: the Church has not spoken definitively on the matter, but there are, I believe (in agreement with my brother), serious problems with these “revelations.”

Here is the first of the two articles written by my brother, Fr. Terry (Terrance) Staples:

Luisa Piccaretta and the Divine Will - Fr. Terrance Staples, Catholic Priest - Tim Staples, Catholic Apologist

Luisa Piccarreta’s Kingdom of the Divine Will: Divine Revelation or Deceptive Innovation?

What if someone told you they had a collection of writings from Jesus Himself which contained spiritual insights and prayers–never before revealed to anyone in the Church–which could show you how to achieve a greater union with God, a greater holiness, than ever before possible? . . . a holiness which would place you far, far, above all the Saints that have gone before us? Sounds great, right? Too good to be true? I’m afraid that’s right too.

Unfortunately, there is a new theology on the market which is making outrageous claims and many good Catholics are being deceived into believing a very dangerous delusion. This new theology is based on the writings of Luisa Piccarreta which, of course, she claims to have received directly from Jesus Himself. According to these writings, Luisa has ushered-in a new Era in the Church–a new dispensation has dawned. The long awaited “Kingdom of the Divine Will” has finally come from heaven to earth. Are you confused yet? I will try to explain.

What is the “Kingdom of the Divine Will”?

According to the alleged revelations of Luisa Piccarreta there are three great Eras in salvation history which correspond to, and follow from, three great “fiats.” The first great fiat is the creative fiat: God creates all things by His Word—His “fiat”; this initiates the “age of creation.” The second fiat was made by the Blessed Virgin Mary: “let it be done to me…”; this ushered in the “age of redemption.” Finally, after many years of struggle and turmoil in the Church, God has decided to complete the work of creation and redemption by inspiring the third fiat: Luisa Piccarreta said, “let it be done to me…”; and her fiat, which is on an equal par with the fiat of creation and the fiat of our Blessed Mother, has brought the Church to a new level of sanctity. We now enter the “Era of Sanctification.” With Luisa’s fiat, the Kingdom of the Divine Will has come to earth and is available to all who will say “yes” to the Divine Will. Eventually, this new gift to the Church, the gift of the Divine Will, will spread to all its members and all of creation will be restored to a manner of life on a par with the life of Adam and Eve before the Fall. This new Kingdom is referred to as the Kingdom of the Divine Will (KDW).

This talk about “three Eras,” three “fiats,” an “Age of Sanctification” and the advent of the “Kingdom of the Divine Will” should sound very strange to Catholic ears simply because it has never been taught by the Church; but, the question before us today is: could it possibly be true? After all, can’t God do whatever He wants? How can we judge such as claim? Before answering these questions, we will first consider this new theology more deeply.

What Does it Mean to “Live in the Kingdom of the Divine Will”?

According to Luisa’s revelations, to “live in the Divine Will” is to literally possess the Divine Will itself in such a way that your actions become purely divine. Before Luisa came along, all that could be achieved by the Saints was a “poor and lowly union with God.” They could, by grace, do God’s will, but they could not actually possess the Divine Will and have It act in their stead. This new way of possessing the Divine Will has been introduced to the Church by Jesus Himself through Luisa (although Adam, Eve, and our Blessed Mother had this gift prior to Luisa). Here is how Jesus allegedly explains this new way of acting to Luisa: “When a soul acts in my Will her humanity is, as it were, suspended. Then the Divine Life of my Love takes its place and acts; and, as it acts in a creature, my love finds itself unburdened of its desire for expression” (BH, p. 94). [1] Contrasting the “old way” of holiness–i.e. obedience to God’s will by grace–with the new way–i.e. possession of the Divine Will– Jesus allegedly tells Luisa, “. . . to live in My Will is to reign in It and with It, while to do My Will [the “old way”] is to be at My orders. …To live in My Will is to live with a single Will–God’s Will–a Will all Holy, all Pure, all Peace.” [2] Many more examples could be sighted from her writings, hopefully this is enough to convey just how radical her claims really are. This leads us to the next question.

How Does One Receive the Gift of the Divine Will?

To receive this sublime gift of the Divine Will you must do two things: (1) become familiar with Luisa’s writings, and (2) fervently ask for the gift. Since Jesus has allegedly deposited this new doctrine with Luisa, the only way to receive the understanding necessary to acquire the gift is to have recourse to Luisa’s writings. Jesus refers to her as the “second mother” to the Church, surpassed in sanctity only by the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lord allegedly says to Luisa:

Since my Mother [Mary] was entrusted to Me and, being a Priest to Her, I entrusted to Her as a sanctuary all the laws, precepts and doctrines that the Church needed to possess. And, faithful as She was and zealous for even one of my words so they would not be lost, She deposited them in my faithful disciple, John. And for that reason my Mother has supremacy over all the Church. In the same way I have done this with you [Luisa]. Being necessary to serve the Fiat Voluntas Tua to all the Church, I have entrusted you to one of my ministers so that you might deposit in him everything I reveal to you about my Will: The Goods that it contains and how the creature should enter into it and how the paternal kindness wants to open another era of grace, putting the goods he possesses in heaven in common with the creature and restoring to man his lost happiness. (p. 14, BH).

At this point, you may be thinking, “This sounds strange, but how do I know whether or not God has given the Church a second mother who has made a way for us to achieve a new level of sanctity? This brings us to the $10,000.00 question:

What’s Wrong with the KDW?

The doctrine associated with the KDW, as presented above, is very problematic to say the least. For the purposes of this article, I will focus on one major problem: it violates the Catholic notion of Divine Revelation. In the First Eucharistic Prayer of the Holy Mass, the Church proclaims a central teaching of the Catholic faith: “. . . we offer them [the gifts] for all who hold and teach the Catholic faith that comes to us from the Apostles.” The Second Vatican Council teaches us:

Everything we need for holiness and increase in faith has been handed on from the Apostles once and for all (cf. Jude 3). What was handed on by the apostles comprises everything that serves to make the People of God live their lives in holiness and increase their faith. In this way the Church, in her doctrine, life and worship, perpetuates and transmits to every generation all that she herself is, all that she believes. (DV #8).

Contrary to this teaching, Jesus allegedly revealed to Luisa that “everything that serves to make the People of God live their lives in holiness . . .” was not handed on from the Apostles. Rather, Jesus told her that God has waited for this time in history to reveal to the Church a new and better way of holiness unknown to the Apostles. These are allegedly Jesus’ words to Luisa,

“…it is certain that I have called you first over other souls. Because to no other souls, however much I have loved them, have I shown How to live in my Will, The effects, the marvels, the riches that the creature receives who acts in my supreme will. Search the lives of the Saints as much as you wish or in books of doctrine and you will not find the wonders of My Will working in the creature and the creature acting in my will. The most you will find will be resignation, abandonment, the union of wills, but the divine will working in the creature and the creature in my will, you will not find this in anyone. This signifies that the time had not arrived in which my kindness would call the creature to live in such a sublime state. Moreover, even the way I ask you to pray is not found in any other…” (BH, p. xix).

Clearly, we have a contradiction here, right? I think so, but for the KDW enthusiast, some possible objections remain unanswered. Further clarification is necessary.

What about Private Revelation?

If it is true that “everything we need for holiness and increase in faith has been handed on from the Apostles,” what about all the sacramentals and devotions in the Church which have been introduced after the Apostles? What about the Rosary, the Scapular, the Miraculous Medal, Louis DeMontfort’s consecration to Mary? Aren’t these things “needed for holiness and increase in faith”? In order to answer this objection and distinguish between these sacramentals and Luisa’s new doctrine, we must understand the role of private revelation in the Church. For this we look to our handy Catechism:

“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….
“Christian faith cannot accept “revelations” that claim to surpass or correct the Revelation of which Christ is the fulfilment, as is the case in certain non Christian religions and also in certain recent sects which base themselves on such ‘revelations.’” (CCC #67).

Notice the role of private revelations: they help us to live more fully by the Revelation that we already have. They cannot “improve or complete” what comes to us from the Apostles. Thus, devotions, which are sometimes based upon private revelation, such as the Rosary, Scapular, etc…, do not, and cannot, add any new doctrine to the Church; they simply help us to express and live our faith in a certain period of history. Our Holy Father, John Paul II, emphasized this point while making a pilgrimage to Fatima. He said,

“The Church has always taught and continues to proclaim that God’s revelation was brought to completion in Jesus Christ, who is the fullness of that revelation, and that “no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord” (Dei Verbum, 4). The Church evaluates and judges private revelations by the criterion of conformity with that single public Revelation. If the Church has accepted the message of Fatima, it is above all because that message contains a truth and a call whose basic content is the truth and the call of the Gospel itself.” [3]

From what has been said, the following criteria for judging a private revelation can be given: the teaching given in any private revelation must be demonstrable from Scripture and Tradition apart from any reference to the private revelation itself. In other words, the deposit of faith, “everything we need for holiness and increase of faith,” must be able to stand on its own without any reference to private revelation.

Now, we are ready to apply this criteria to Luisa’s revelations. Luisa’s “revelations” claim to do much more than help us live by what we have received. She claims to have opened an entirely new “era of grace” which was previously unknown to the Church. According to her revelations, what we have received from the Apostles is not enough to complete our sanctification–her revelations are essential. Here are the alleged words of Jesus to Luisa:

“With three FIAT’s I will complete the work of sanctification in man. . . . The generations will not cease until my Will reigns on earth. My Redemptive FIAT [i.e. Mary’s] will interpose itself between the Creative FIAT and the Sanctifying FIAT [Luisa’s]. They will entwine, all three together, and bring to fulfillment the sanctification of man. The Third FIAT [i.e. Luisa’s] will give creatures such grace that they will return almost to their original state. Only when I have seen man as he emerged from Me, will my work be complete. Then will I enjoy perpetual repose in this, my last FIAT. Only the Life of my Will shall return man anew to his original state. Therefore, be attentive and together with Me, help Me accomplish the sanctification of creatures.” (P. 125, BH).

Clearly, her revelations claim to improve and complete the Revelation we have received from the Apostles. The promoters of the KDW, basing themselves on Luisa’s writings, unabashedly claim that without referring to her writings, and without her fiat, it is impossible for us to reach the fullness of sanctity that God desires for all Christians. This claim contradicts Catholic teaching.

At this point, I believe we’ve established that Luisa’s “revelations” claim to do more than a private revelation can do. But, another objection remains.

Development of Doctrine?

Some will argue that Luisa’s “new doctrine” is not new at all. They claim that while her doctrine has obviously never been taught by the Church, it has remained hidden in Sacred Scripture and thus it is actually a part of the Revelation which comes to us from the Apostles. The Church . . . well . . . the Church just never realized it was there until Luisa. In other words, her teachings are defended under the guise of a legitimate “development of doctrine.” To answer this objection, we must review the Catholic understanding of how doctrine can expand and develop over time.

There is a genuine development of doctrine within the Church which is described in the Second Vatican Council as follows: “The Tradition that comes from the apostles makes progress in the Church, with the help of the Holy Spirit. There is a growth in insight into the realities and words that are being passed on” (Dei Verbum, #8). The important characteristic of a true development is that it is gradual; i.e., it progresses and grows in the Church over time. Following the example of Jesus’ parable of the mustard seed (Mk 4:31), legitimate development can be compared to the growth of a plant. Over the years it gradually, almost unperceptively, expands and yet remains the same plant. Our Catechism characterizes the development of doctrine in this way:

“’The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new and definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ.’ Yet even if Revelation is already complete, it has not been made completely explicit; it remains for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the centuries.” (CCC #66).

Hopefully, we can distinguish at this point the difference between the development of doctrine and an innovation of doctrine (which cannot be accepted). Every legitimate development in the Church must be organically connected to the Tradition: it builds upon and deepens what is already present in the minds of the faithful. Luisa’s new doctrine is not, by her own admission, connected with the Tradition; it is foreign to the mind of the Church. Therefore, it does not qualify as a genuine development of doctrine.

Perhaps some examples will help clarify. Some have tried to compare Luisa’s new teachings to the doctrine of the Assumption of Mary which was not defined by the Church until 1950. “What about the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary?” they ask, “how can we say that this doctrine comes to us from the Apostles?” We will let Pope Pius XII answer this question and explain the rationale for defining the Assumption as a legitimate development of doctrine:

“Since the universal Church, within which dwells the Spirit of Truth who infallibly directs it toward an ever more perfect knowledge of the revealed truths, has expressed its own belief many times over the course of the centuries, and since the bishops of the entire world are almost unanimously petitioning that the truth of the bodily Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven should be defined as a dogma of divine and Catholic faith this truth which is based on the Sacred Writings, which is thoroughly rooted in the minds of the faithful, which has been approved in ecclesiastical worship from the most remote times, which is completely in harmony with the other revealed truths, and which has been expounded and explained magnificently in the work, the science, and the wisdom of the theologians we believe that the moment appointed in the plan of divine providence for the solemn proclamation of this outstanding privilege of the Virgin Mary has already arrived.” (Munificentissimus Deus #41).

Notice the criterion the Holy Father specifies to demonstrate the authenticity of the doctrine: it is “based on the Sacred Writings”, it is “thoroughly rooted in the minds of the faithful,” it is “approved in ecclesiastical worship from the most remote times,” it is “completely in harmony with the other revealed truths,” etc…. These are the marks of a legitimate development of doctrine. The doctrine of the Assumption cannot be traced to any individual person. It was not conceived as a personal “revelation.” It is rooted in Scripture and Tradition and has been an approved doctrine from the earliest days of Christianity.

How does Luisa’s doctrine stand up against these criterion? Unfortunately, the doctrine of a new “Era of Sanctification” initiated by a third “fiat” which would be necessary to bring our sanctification and redemption to completion, is simply not found in the Tradition. It is by definition, and by Luisa’s own admission, a new doctrine never before revealed to the Church: it is completely outside the deposit of faith. It fails every test of being an authentic development . . . it is not Catholic teaching.

There is one last objection which I feel obliged to address since I have personally encountered this many times. Some will argue: “But, Adam, Eve and Mary received the gift of the Divine Will, this proves that it is not ‘new doctrine.’” Or, what amounts to the same argument: “But Luisa’s writings fulfill the Lord’s prayer, doesn’t this imply they are rooted in Scripture and Tradition?” Both these questions obviously employ circular reasoning: they beg the question. The question is, do her writings fulfill the Lord’s prayer? We cannot conclude that they do, simply because they say they do. That would be a circular argument. How, then, can we know? The answer is, we must interpret the Scriptures with the mind of the Church. The Second Vatican Council teaches: “But since sacred Scripture must be read and interpreted with its divine authorship in mind, no less attention must be devoted to the content and unity of the whole of Scripture, taking into account the Tradition of the entire Church and the analogy of faith, if we are to derive their true meaning from the sacred texts” (DV #12). This is a very important aspect of Catholic exegesis. We cannot base our interpretation of Scripture solely on private revelation (cf. 2 Pet 1:20). Practically every heresy, every Protestant sect, every false doctrine promoted under the name “Christian,” claims to be founded on Sacred Scripture. Whenever we wrest the Scriptures from Tradition we come away with an invalid interpretation. Luisa’s interpretation of the Lord’s prayer is completely novel by her own admission. Luisa claims that the words “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” actually refer to the coming of the “Era of Sanctification” in which those who follow her teachings are elevated above all the Saints that have gone before them. They will fulfill this prayer by literally possessing the Divine Will on earth, and with this new possession, accomplish God’s will on earth precisely as the Saints do in heaven. Throughout the history of the Church we have seen innumerable commentaries on the Lord’s Prayer. The Church, as our Mother and Teacher, has drawn from the treasures of her Tradition and offered rich instruction on the Lord’s Prayer, especially in the Catechism of the Council of Trent and the new Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Church has never understood the Lord’s Prayer to have the meaning being promoted today by the KDW movement. Luisa’s interpretation is based solely on private revelation, it has no connection with the Tradition of the Church and is foreign to the analogy of faith. The conclusion is obvious, Luisa’s writings do not fulfill the Lord’s Prayer according to Catholic exegesis.

Conclusion

Having carefully and diligently studied this article, you are now prepared to address that someone who might try to entice you into believing that you can be part of a “new kingdom,” based on a “new revelation,” which promises a new and improved version of holiness. The Church teaches that everything we need for holiness and increase in faith has been handed on from the Apostles “once and for all” (Jude 3). Private revelations cannot add to this deposit of faith.

In summary, Luisa’s writings claim to complete and surpass the revelation we have received from the Apostles; this is simply impossible. God cannot contradict Himself. Luisa explicitly denies that her doctrine has developed from the Tradition; this means it is not Catholic teaching. If Luisa’s writings are true, we will have to amend the First Eucharistic Prayer: “. . . We offer [the gifts] for all who hold and teach the Catholic faith that comes to us from the Apostles . . . and Luisa.”

Luisa Piccarreta: Seduced by A Demon?

Saint Sister Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska

Full Text: of St. Faustina's Diary

Whether or not you accept (1) "The Sacred Heart of Jesus Devotion" (Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque), (2)"The Divine Mercy Devotion" (Saint Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska), or my own (3) "The Divine Mercy Image Private Revelation" is irrelevant. The message is the same and is not optional. Here's why ...

"Divine Mercy is both a message and a devotion. It is not just a devotion. While devotions are optional, "The Divine Mercy" is a message from God and is the "Heart of the Gospels" and it is therefore not optional. Therefore if you reject The Divine Mercy, you are rejecting the Gospels."
Fr. Chris Alar, MIC (The Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of The Most Blessed Virgin Mary -
Marian Seminarians, Holy Priests, Apostles of Divine Mercy - National Shrine of The Divine Mercy, Stockbridge, MA)

The Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37):

Jesus Himself teaches us that "Mercy" is not optional and that it is our responsibility.  We have the free will to decide if we want to obey His two greatest commandments and we also have the free will to decide if we want to do what it takes to get to heaven!

God does not force us to love Him or our neighbour as that decision is left up to us alone (free will). Would you want to force someone to "love you (a lie)?" That would not be "true love"(truth) would it? God says He "is Truth" so why would He want to turn us into "robots" (or clones of Himself by replacing our "free will" with His "Divine Will" (LP) such that we are forced to love Him and be instantly holy like He is? That would be a "lie" - And we know who the father of all lies is don't we?

"I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me."  (John 14:6)

The Parable of the Good Samaritan-Luke 10:25-37

“… Master, what must I do to possess eternal life?

But he said to him: What is written in the law? how readest thou? He answering, said:
 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself.' And he said to him: Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. But he willing to justify himself, said to Jesus: And who is my neighbour? And Jesus answering, said: A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, who also stripped him, and having wounded him went away, leaving him half dead.
And it chanced, that a certain priest went down the same way: and seeing him, passed by. In like manner also a Levite, when he was near the place and saw him, passed by. But a certain Samaritan being on his journey, came near him; and seeing him, was moved with compassion. And going up to him, bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine: and setting him upon his own beast, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And the next day he took out two pence, and gave to the host, and said: Take care of him; and whatsoever thou shalt spend over and above, I, at my return, will repay thee.
'Which of these three, in thy opinion, was neighbour to him that fell among the robbers?' But he said: 'He that shewed mercy to him. And Jesus said to him: Go, and do thou in like manner.' (Luke 10:25-37)

Saint Faustina's Visions of Heaven, Hell and Purgatory I Grace & Free Will ( Divine Mercy In My Soul, Diary)

Two Roads - The Hard Road and The Easy Road - Which Road Will You Take?

"I saw two roads. One was broad, covered with sand and flowers, full of joy, music and all sorts of pleasures. People walked along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They reached the end without realizing it. And at the end of the road there was a horrible precipice; that is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And their number was so great that it was impossible to count them.

And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it was narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks; and the people who walked along it had tears in their eyes, and all kinds of suffering befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts of happiness and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant they forgot all their sufferings" (Diary 153).

Purgatory

"I saw my Guardian Angel, who ordered me to follow him. In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently, but to no avail, for themselves; only we can come to their aid. The flames, which were burning them, did not touch me at all. My Guardian Angel did not leave me for an instant. I asked these souls what their greatest suffering was. They answered me in one voice that their greatest torment was longing for God. I saw Our Lady visiting the souls in Purgatory. The souls call Her “The Star of the Sea”. She brings them refreshment. I wanted to talk with them some more, but my Guardian Angel beckoned me to leave. We went out of that prison of suffering. [I heard an interior voice which said] ‘My mercy does not want this, but justice demands it.' Since that time, I am in closer communion with the suffering souls.’” (Diary 20)

Hell

"Today, I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell. It is a place of great torture; how awesomely large and extensive it is! The kinds of tortures I saw: the first torture that constitutes hell is the loss of God; the second is perpetual remorse of conscience; the third is that one’s condition will never change; the fourth is the fire that will penetrate the soul without destroying it, a terrible suffering, since it is a purely spiritual fire, lit by God’s anger; the fifth torture is conditional darkness and a terrible suffocating smell, and despite the darkness, the devils and the souls of the damned see each other and all the evil, both of others and their own; the sixth torture is the constant company of satan, the seventh torture is horrible despair, hatred of God, vile words, curses and blasphemies. These are the tortures suffered by all the damned together, but that is not the end of the sufferings. There are special tortures destined for particular souls. These are the torments of the senses. Each soul undergoes terrible and indescribable sufferings, related to the manner in which it has sinned. There are caverns and pits of torture where one form of agony differs from another. I would have died at the very sight of these tortures if the omnipotence of God had not supported me. Let the sinner know that he will be tortured throughout all eternity, in those senses which he made use of to sin. I am writing this at the command of God, so that no soul may find an excuse by saying there is no hell, or that nobody has ever been there, and so no one can say what it is like. I, sister Faustina, by the order of God, have visited the abysses of hell so that I might tell souls about it and testify to its existence. I cannot speak about it now; but I have received a command from God to leave it in writing. The devils were full of hatred for me, but they had to obey me at the command of God. What I have written is but a pale shadow of the things I saw. But I noticed one thing: that most of the souls there are those who disbelieved that there is a hell. When I came to, I could hardly recover from the fright. How terribly souls suffer there! Consequently, I pray even more fervently for the conversion of sinners. I incessantly plead God’s mercy upon them. O my Jesus, I would rather be in agony until the end of the world, amidst the greatest sufferings, then offend You by the least sin." (Diary 741).

Heaven

"Today I was in heaven, in spirit, and I saw its unconceivable beauties and the happiness that awaits us after death. I saw how all creatures give ceaseless praise and glory to God. I saw how great is happiness in God, which spreads to all creatures, making them happy; and then all the glory and praise which springs from this happiness returns to its source; and they enter into the depths of God, contemplating the inner life of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, whom they will never comprehend or fathom. This source of happiness is unchanging in its essence, but it is always new, gushing forth happiness for all creatures. Now I understand Saint Paul, who said, “Eye has not seen, nor has ear heard, not has it entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love him.”  (Diary 777)

And God has given me to understand that there is but one thing that is of infinite value in His eyes, and that is love of God; love, love and once again, love; and nothing can compare with a single act of pure love of God. Oh, with what inconceivable favors God gifts a soul that loves Him sincerely! Oh, how happy is the soul who already here on earth enjoys His special favors! And of such are the little and humble souls. (Diary 778)

The sight of this great majesty of God, which I came to understand more profoundly and which is worshipped by the heavenly spirits according to their degree of grace and the hierarchies into which they are divided, did not cause my soul to be stricken with terror or fear; no, no, not at all! My soul was filled with peace and love, and the more I come to know the greatness of God, the more joyful I become that He is as He is. And I rejoice immensely in His greatness and am delighted that I am so little because, since I am little, He carries me in His arms and holds me close to His Heart. (Diary 779)

O my God, how I pity those people who do not believe in eternal life; how I pray for them that a ray of mercy would envelop them too, and that God would clasp them to His fatherly bosom." (Diary 780)

God's Graces & Gift of Free Will - God Calls Us And It Is Up To Us If We Want To Answer His Call Or Not?

Jesus told St.Faustina:

"I am more deeply wounded by the small imperfections of chosen souls than by the sins of those living in the world. It made me very sad that chosen souls make Jesus suffer, and Jesus told me, These little imperfections are not all. I will reveal to you a secret of My Heart: what I suffer from chosen souls. Ingratitude in return for so many graces is My Heart's constant food, on the part of [such] a chosen soul. Their love is lukewarm, and My Heart cannot bear it; these souls force Me to reject them. Others distrust My goodness and have no desire to experience that sweet intimacy in their own hearts, but go in search of Me, off in the distance, and do not find Me. This distrust of My goodness hurts Me very much. If My death has not convinced you of My love, what will? Often a soul wounds Me mortally, and then no one can comfort Me. They use My graces to offend Me. There are souls who despise My graces as well as all the proofs of My love. They do not wish to hear My call, but proceed into the abyss of hell. The loss of these souls plunges Me into deadly sorrow. God though I am, I cannot help such a soul because it scorns Me; having a free will, it can spurn Me or love Me. You, who are the dispenser of My mercy, tell all the world about My goodness, and thus you will comfort My Heart." (Diary 580)

"Damnation is for the soul who wants to be damned; but for the one who desires salvation, there is the inexhaustible ocean of the Lord's mercy to draw from." (Diary 631)

"When I was at Kiekrz (1930) to replace one of the sisters for a short time, I went across the garden one afternoon and stopped on the shore of the lake; I stood there for a long time, contemplating my surroundings. Suddenly I saw the Lord Jesus near me, and he graciously said to me: "All this I created for you My spouse; and know that all this beauty is nothing compared to what I have prepared for you in eternity."" (Diary 158)

Satan's Also Has a Kingdom and He Tries To Mimic God Through His Deception
He Takes Advantage Of Suffering Souls That Are Not Aware Or Have Forgotten That The Cross Is Salvation In The End. Jesus Himself Has Proven This To Us.

"And no marvel; for even Satan fashions himself into an angel of light." (2 Corinthians 11:14).

“a king over all the children of pride” (Job 41:34)

There are 6 Stages of the Exorcism Process: Presence, Pretense, Breakpoint, Voice, Clash, and Expulsion.
"The Possessor (often referring to itself as “the Kingdom” or in plural as “We” selects victims gripped in some spiritual, emotional and intellectual conflict with the accepted mores of family, society and church, inserting itself undetected into these fault lines and exploiting them with catastrophic consequences. Loss of self identity, soul, or personality follows as a result." [Source: Hostage To The Devil - book  by Father Malachi Martin, a trained exorcist in the Roman Catholic tradition. TradCatKnight Radio - Eric Gajewski]

The Words and Promises of Jesus are not Compatible With "The Divine Will" (LP)

“What eye has not seen, and ear has not heard, and what has not entered the human heart, what God has prepared for those who love him,” (1 Corinthians 2:9)

“For many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14)

"As a bridegroom rejoices in his bride, so shall your God rejoice in you." (Isaiah 62:5)

"The bride must resemble her Betrothed." (Diary 268)

"There is but one price at which souls are bought, and that is suffering united to My suffering on the cross." (Diary 324)

"Love must be reciprocal. If Jesus tasted the fullness of bitterness for me, then I His bride, will accept all bitterness as proof of my love for Him." (Diary 389)

"These hosts have been received by souls converted through your prayer and suffering. (Diary 709)

"My daughter, I too came down from heaven out of love for you; I lived for you, I died for you, and I created the heavens for you." (Diary 853)

“My child, life on earth is a struggle indeed; a great struggle for My kingdom.  But fear not, because you’re not alone.  I am always supporting you, so lean on Me as you struggle, fear nothing.  Take the vessel of trust and draw from the fountain of life – for yourself, but also for other souls, especially such as are distrustful of My goodness.” (Diary 1488)

The Scriptures On Final Judgement and The Holy Spirit are not Compatible With "The Divine Will" (LP)

"According to Luisa’s revelations, to “live in the Divine Will” is to literally possess the Divine Will itself in such a way that your actions become purely divine." (Fr. Terrance Staples)

This belief contradicts the following scriptures and would make Jesus appear rather flaky and a liar, would it not?

If this was indeed the case, why would Jesus tell us He will return to judge us? If we were to become purely divine, there would be no need for judgement. Why would He instruct us to keep His commandments such that He will be with us until the end of time (Holy Spirit) as that would not be necessary? Is your head spinning in this cloud of confusion yet?

"And when the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty. And all nations shall be gathered together before him, and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats:  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left. Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in: Naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me.  Then shall the just answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, and fed thee; thirsty, and gave thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and covered thee?  Or when did we see thee sick or in prison, and came to thee?  And the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me. Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry, and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave me not to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you covered me not: sick and in prison, and you did not visit me. Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee?  Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me. And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting." (Mathew 25:31-46)

"And instruct them to keep everything whatever I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you every day, even unto the end of time." (Matthew 28:20)

St. Paul confirms we are already temples of the Lord so why would we need the gift of "The Divine Will" (LP) when The Holy Spirit is already promised to guide and help us in our journey while we are here on earth. He did not promise we would become "purely divine" as otherwise why would he give us a "helper" (Holy Spirit)? - that doesn't make any sense to at all! 

"Know you not, that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"
(1 Corinthians 3:16)

God (The Holy Spirit/Paraclete) - Helper, Advocate, Comforter Not A Parasite

If we were to become purely divine ("The Divine Will" LP), we would surely be like God, in essence God would be more of parasite rather than a helper (subject to our free will in that we have to choose whether we want His help or not). To take this thought a little further, would God not actually "possess our bodies, minds and souls? Who does this remind you of - you got it, Satan (a parasite)! Actually, it would be worse because Satan can only possess our bodies and minds (emotions, not our free will), but not our souls! My head is spinning with all these contradictions and questions and yours should be too!
To cause confusion, division and dissent are tactics of Satan not God! Our souls are exactly what the devil wants to possess (literally) for all eternity!

"Believe you not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? Otherwise believe for the very works' sake. Amen, amen I say to you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do, he also shall do; and greater than these shall he do. Because I go to the Father: and whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, that will I do: that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you shall ask me anything in My name, that I will do. If you love me, keep my commandments.
And I will ask the Father, and he shall give you another Paraclete, that he may abide with you for ever. The spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, nor knoweth him: but you shall know him; because he shall abide with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you. Yet a little while: and the world seeth me no more. But you see me: because I live, and you shall live. In that day you shall know, that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you." (John 14:11-20)

In this scripture, Jesus tells us that if we believe in Him, we will do the works that He does which follows from our faith and love. He continues by telling us that whatever we ask of the Father in His name, He will do. He further states that if we love Him and keep His commandments, He will do what we ask from Him (provided it is good for our souls). It is so obvious in this scripture that God expects us to exercise our free will, to believe in Him or not and to keep His commandments or not.

Doing God's Will (Holiness) Requires A Child-Like Spirit (Trust, Dependence), Grace and Free Will - Our Choice Alone: Good (Light , Truth, Heaven) Vs Evil (Darkness, Lies, Hell) 
(not "The gift of The Divine Will" LP)

Jesus wants us to do His will as He expressed in "The Our Father Prayer" ("Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.") He left us because He is "God" (omnipotent, all-seeing), both "The Creator" and "Our Father" at the same time. Like any loving father (and more so because He is God), He knows and wants what is best for us and that is not necessarily giving us everything we want and ask for. He is more concerned about our eternal soul than our bodies. Therefore, He often allows suffering etc as it is necessary for our sanctification and ultimately our eternal life in heaven with Him. If God wanted us to be "Divine" (like Himself) why didn't He make us a "higher" creature, like the angels (divination spirits) or better to begin with? Instead, He wanted us to be a "smaller" "child-like" creature, like He himself was (a baby born in a manger). However, He elevated us above the angels by His grace and it is our choice (free will) whether we want His graces or not. The Catholic faith offers a multitude of avenues for us to attain these graces (the main one being The Holy Sacraments). Also, it is our choice (free will) to decide whether or not to place our trust in God, as a child would in their parents.

"Although My greatness is beyond understanding, I commune only with those who are little. I demand of you a childlike spirit." (Diary, 332)

"My Jesus, despite Your graces, I see and feel all my misery. I begin my day with battle and end it with battle. As soon as I conquer one obstacle, ten more appear to take its place. But I am not worried, because I know that this is the time of struggle, not peace. When the burden of the battle becomes too much for me, I throw myself like a child into the arms of the heavenly Father and trust I will not perish. O my Jesus, how prone I am to evil, and this forces me to be constantly vigilant. But I do not lose heart. I trust God’s grace, which abounds in the worst misery." (Diary 606)

"Now I know that it is not for the graces or gifts that you love me, but because My will is dearer to you than life. That is why I am uniting Myself with you so intimately as with no other creature." (Diary 707) (This is how Christ unites Himself (The Holy Spirit/Paraclete - Advocate/Helper/Comforter) with any soul provided we are in the state of grace - our souls are even more unique than our bodies.)

"Tell aching mankind to snuggle close to My merciful Heart, and I will fill it with peace" (Diary, 1074)

Let us keep in mind that simply being a Catholic and going to church is not enough ... Are you running from "The Cross" and seeking pleasures instead ...?

As Christian history has shown, anyone that tries to promote "God's Holy Word" (and work for God) is sure to encounter opposition from those individuals closest to them (both within the church and outside of the church as the following gospel clearly shows).

"Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace but the sword. For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

And a man's enemies shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it. He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me." ((Matthew 10:34-42)   

"Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more." (Luke 12:48)

 

November 4, 2018 - Private Revelation - "The Divine Mercy" (versus The Gift of The Divine Will - LP)

I suppose that some of you are wondering why I took so long to share this particular private revelation. Needless to say, The Divine Will (LP) is a rather sensitive subject matter as I have discovered.  I have found that people get really offended and defensive when I tell them that I do not support it. In addition to needing more time for prayer and discernment, I believe the Lord Himself wanted to make sure that  I had fully processed this mystical experience and was properly prepared to defend The Divine Mercy. In fact, our current global situation proves to me that now is most definitely the right time for me to share this private revelation.

Now I will share my mystical experience with The Divine Mercy (versus The Gift of The Divine Will - LP) . The reason I use the word “versus” is because I have come to understand that this mystical experience was a foreshadowing of the intense spiritual battle we are in now - In essence “The Gift of Free Will”(God) versus Satan’s will disguised as “The Gift of The Divine Will” (Luisa Piccarreta).  In fact, the personal trials, I have experienced over the last several years, have given me a very profound understanding that my (our)  “Free Will” and my (our) Human Dignity was (and still is) under attack in several aspects of our society. However, while The Holy Spirit was showing this to me, I would have never imagined in a million years that our “Free Will” would be attacked on such a massive global level shortly thereafter,  simply horrifying! 

In her apparition of July 13, 1917, Our Lady of Fatima told Sister Lucy that “Russia will spread its errors throughout the world raising up wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be annihilated.” It is appearing that we are almost at the climax of these events now.

For those of you who are unaware, I will take this opportunity to inform you that “The Rite of Anointing tells us there is no need to wait until a person is at the point of death to receive the Sacrament. A careful judgment about the serious nature of the illness is sufficient. When the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is given, the hoped-for effect is that, if it be God's will, the person be physically healed of illness.” (USCCB).  I believe we are all in need of this sacrament now with all of “satan’s abuse”  we are being subjected to via those people that choose to be his instruments of darkness (lies, deception, cruelty, indifference, hatred, vengeance, pride, distortion, temptation, thief, murderer, etc). At the very least we should all be praying to God and asking Him to shield us from Satan’s deception daily.

Now I will begin my story. It was late summer and just prior to me receiving my private revelations of Jesus Christ in Church (September 29 and October 6, 2018).  There was a certain priest that visited me at my home. We sat in the living room and had a conversation (a family member was working in another room). This priest was aware of the difficult trial I was experiencing and had visited previously to provide the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. I was very grateful  for this kindness he showed me.

As we sat and talked about my situation, he brought up the subject of “The Divine Will” and Luisa Piccarreta.  Among other things, he mentioned that she had written a book entitled “Book Of Heaven.” I believe this priest was genuinely trying to provide some comfort to me by telling me that if it is Jesus’ will to take this cross away from me, then He will – and if He didn’t, then that was His will as well. I agreed with him, however,  I interjected by stating that there is a responsibility on mankind to be merciful towards each other as per “The Divine Mercy” message of Jesus Christ to St. Faustina and the whole world (diary, “Divine Mercy In My Soul”). The Divine Mercy message is the “heart of the gospels” with “The Parable of the Good Samaritan” being a significant biblical reference. I would say that this conversation fueled  my tenacious and free spirited personality. My firm stance on this was certainly an expression of my very healthy awareness and appreciation of our God given gift of free will and our true human identities as beloved royal children of God. In fact, ever since I was a child, I knew that I belonged to God and that I was His beloved daughter - My strong identity as a child of God was indeed a grace given to me from the Almighty from as early as I can remember.

On a personal note, I feel a free spirited personality is often unappreciated in the increasingly restrictive society we are living in, which is only getting worse by the day, as we are finding out . Our “ free will” is one of the greatest gifts from God, however, considering Satan is the prince of this world, our  freedom (free will) is constantly under attack and this has led to great injustices and suffering  to God’s people. This is especially true where children and other vulnerable people are concerned, especially in the context of “healthcare” (eg: abortion, removal of life support, withholding and withdrawing of medical treatments, euthanasia, forced medical intervention). The word “control” (being controlled by others) comes to mind here and is counter to “free will.” Satan’s words also come to mind: “I will not serve.” Another word  that comes to mind is “canceling” (free sprits). An increasingly frightening horror movie is unfolding right before our very eyes, yet many people are still unaware as Satan’s deception is great,  need I say more?!

Dr. John Breeding Ph.D. wrote a book entitled, “The Wildest Colts Make The Best Horses” - Defending the Development of Young People . He states: “Child psychiatric diagnoses such as ADHD, other disruptive behaviour disorders, bipolar and depression have not been scientifically demonstrated to be legitimate medical illnesses. We consider subsequent use of psychiatric drugs with children to be based, therefore, not in science but in fraud.” In other words, normal "free spirited"  children (active or otherwise) are medicated so they can be controlled. There is most often no consideration given with regards to variation in temperament, behaviour etc (we are all incredibly unique human beings created by God). Just because people do not fall into what society considers "normal" (acceptable behaviour) they are considered "abnormal" and therefore medicated (or worse) so they can be controlled and fit into the social norms of society. Without a doubt, the desire of one human being to control another human being (taking away their free will) comes from Satan!

Nowadays, Christians are also seen as "abnormal" if you look at the persecution etc going on in several places around the world. Christianity does not fit in well with Secularism. Therefore Christ is gradually being removed from every facet of society. I could go on and on about what use to be normal is now considered abnormal. Talk about "opposite day"!The world has indeed gone BONKERS!! 

Being the free spirited person that I am, I consider myself to be a “wild colt” in a good way, in that it has fueled my independent search for and discovery of “The Truth”, namely Jesus Christ. In my opinion, the subject matter of Dr. Breeding’s book  applies to every human being on this planet , not just children. Satan is always wanting to put “the wildest colts” (those that will only bow down to The Truth, Jesus Christ) “under “his boots”(controlling, canceling), in order to gain power over the human race so that he can destroy it.  After all why would he bother going after complacent people (and fence sitters), when he already has them in the palm of his hand?  In essence, satan's goal is to take away our freedom (free will) and our very dignity and identity as male and female, equal but different . This is detrimental to the family and the human race as a whole. While we may not all be the “wildest colts” we are all “unique individuals” (not robots/puppets that need to be kept under control) and have the God given right to live with respect, dignity, freedom, truth and justice. We are all royal children of God and should be treated as such – from the moment of conception to the moment of our death! Jesus Christ, The King - Love, Mercy and Justice Himself, will not have it any other way!

Now back to my story. I explained to the priest that I needed to be proactive in dealing with my situation, and that I was not going to just wait around for Jesus to provide what I needed as my belief is and always was that, “God helps those that help themselves.” This has been my experience for all of my life thus far.  I gave him the following example to illustrate my belief that I was an active participant (versus being merely a puppet or robot) of my own destiny, in which my free will plays a big part. Without even knowing exactly what “The Divine Will (LP)” even was, I instinctively felt  it was contrary to The Divine Mercy message and that it somehow rendered me an inactive participant (a robot) in my relationship with God which is far from the truth, as the opposite has always been my experience. A true loving relationship cannot be one sided as that would not be true love – and God is Love! God would never force us to love Him as that would not be true love and even thinking this might be a possiblity is surely offensive to God for what value does robotic love have? Robotic love can be likened to  "indifference."

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.” (Elie Wiesel)

 “I know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”
(Revelation 3:15-16)

I went on to provide an example: “What if you were drowning in a lake and someone came by and gave  you a life raft so that you could be rescued, would you accept it and save yourself?  Or would you rather wait for Jesus Himself to rescue you?” Essentially, Jesus is acting through the person that threw you the life raft – this is a clear example of The Divine Mercy acting through The Holy Spirit. However, this priest was not interested in hearing this. I think it was probably due to his frustration in not being able to comfort and assist me.

He then said he was going to do an anointing. He brought out a communion pyx and informed me that it contained a lock of hair that belonged to Luisa Piccarreta.  I was a little surprised and asked: “what should I do?” He responded by telling me to venerate it (to kiss it, for example). So at that moment I blindly kissed the pyx as I had no idea who Luisa Piccarreta was, until later, after I did some research.  Afterwards, and all of a sudden, a very strange, uncomfortable, eery feeling came over me. Strangely, I was not wearing my St. Michael necklace nor my bracelet as both had severed  just a few days before, one after the other. However, fortunately, the eery feeling quickly dissipated as my focus suddenly changed to my St. Michael’s statue and inspiration to go get it as it was in another room.

As the priest proceeded to the foyer to leave, I started telling him about my first private revelation of  St. Michael. However, before continuing I felt compelled to show him my statue of St. Michael associated with this revelation. I have two statues of St. Michael, associated with two private revelations. When the priest set his eyes on the St. Michael statue, his face appeared to me as though he had seen a ghost! Then he said: “when you encounter a situation like that again (referring to my encounter with evil (my first private revelation of St. Michael and Satan) you just say “The Precious Blood Of Jesus Prayer”.  At that time, I had absolutely no idea what this prayer was, so I asked him to tell me. He immediately recited the prayer and told me that he would say a mass for me. I thanked him and then he left. I feel this prayer was a grace coming from God (through this priest) and I have since invoked The Precious Blood of Jesus on a regular basis. God often talks to me through other people.

I have come to believe that I had invoked St. Michael via my statue. Subsequently, Jesus was invoked via the priest when he said “The Precious Blood of Jesus Prayer” likely at the command of St. Michael himself - To counteract the veneration of Satan via The Divine Will (LP’s lock of hair that was in the pyx, that I had kissed during the priest’s visit). This was my third private revelation of St. Michael (versus Satan). The Crucifix and The Divine Mercy Image hang on the foyer walls.  I have since made it a shrine to include Pope John Paul II’s and St. Faustina’s images. This is something I highly recommend to everyone, very powerful!

As a side note, I would like to mention that I had started to write about my first two St. Michael private revelations about a year after they happened. However, a feeling of discouragement came over me  (Satan) and I tore my notes up and threw them away, thinking why bother, no one will believe me and they will think I am crazy.  St. Faustina experienced the same discouragement coming from Satan as he has a hatred for those that work for God to save souls (she had burned her diary at one point). All the while, I was certain these private revelations came from God and St. Michael became my comforter and carried me through a most difficult time in my life. At the time I was venerating two statues, a medallion and read several books about St. Michael.  I was praying the St. Michael prayer, The Rosary, The Chaplet of Divine Mercy and even asked St. Michael, to “Come to my aid” on several occasions. I suppose it was like Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane, as it is believed that St. Michael was the angel, God the father sent to comfort Jesus. Perhaps one day I will rewrite and share these mystical experiences as well.

Well as you can imagine, I started thinking about all that had just happened and couldn’t help but to feel perplexed. So I proceeded to research Luisa Piccarreta. I found the article about Luisa Piccarreta published by Fr. Terrance Staples. After reading it, I instinctively felt  that his opinion was correct and that  Luisa Piccarreta (Book of Heaven DW) was not of God and that I should avoid it.

On November 4, 2018 I had an awful dream. I dreamt that I was in church and a young woman was sitting to my left in my pew (my “Jesus seat” as I call it, as that is where Jesus sat in the second personal face to face encounter I had with him on October 6, 2018 (the first one being on September 29, 2018, St. Michael’s Feast Day). Judging from her profile, it appeared that she could be my Godparents’ daughter named “Luisa” but I wasn’t sure. Then, the woman turned to her right to look at me and she looked exactly like my Godparents’ daughter named Luisa, so I said: “Luisa?” and she answered: “yes ” with a big smile.

Then I proceeded to give her a big hug, when all of a sudden I had a flashback to when I kissed the communion pyx that contained a lock of hair that belonged to Luisa Piccarreta. I knew I was in the presence of Satan and although I could not see him, I most certainly felt it!  I knew both the priest and I had been victims of Satan’s grand deception! Immediately I became terrified to say the least and at once, I awoke from the nightmare! Then I quickly took hold of my rosary and recited The Divine Mercy Chaplet. My calm and peace was immediately restored. Thank you Jesus!

As I reflected on this whole experience, I came to the final conclusion, that The Divine Mercy (St. Faustina) and The Divine Will (LP) are in opposition to each other, like Satan and St. Michael The Archangel (Good vs Evil). I do not believe it is a coincidence that the priest and I expressed opposing views during his visit. I was defending “The Divine Mercy” and he was defending “The Divine Will (LP)”. It is definitely in Satan’s character to cause “Division” as that is his second tactic after “Deception”(Fr. Vincent Lampert - The Devil You Don't Know by Fr. Louis Camalari).  I believe it was my Godparents ( in heaven praying for me) in unison with The Holy Spirit and St. Michael that further enlightened and protected me. It was at this point, that I became convinced that “The Divine Will” (LP) was not of God and that my instincts to stay away from this devotion were correct! In fact, there are a few people out there that have acted vehemently in opposition to my mission (Christ’s and St. Faustina’s mission and The Heart of the Gospels) regarding The Divine Mercy.  Rather, they appear to give more importance to The Divine Will (LP) which is not “The Heart Of The Gospels” in any way, shape or form, in my opinion. In fact, many believe that The Divine Mercy is just a devotion (private revelation) and you can just take it or leave it. An authentic private revelation always points back to the Gospel  truths and they contain all we require to achieve holiness and salvation. As I have discussed in my previous writings, this belief is backed up by some of the greatest saints.

As time goes on, I am coming to the conclusion, that I have the Charism of  Discernment. I have had  several experiences with this over the past three years and believe me it is not something to be envied or desired. It has caused me great suffering as I see many souls on the road to perdition (despite my efforts and the efforts of others).  
To console myself, I tell Jesus: “You are God and despite that fact, you were often rejected, to the point of Your death and therefore, I should expect that I will be rejected as well. I am not God and therefore I should not feel so bad nor worry so much that I cannot do much more with certain souls that reject Your Word (The Divine Mercy Message - Jesus Himself is "The Divine Mercy").
 

The words Jesus I trust in You (Jezu Ufam Tobie!) are very comforting during these times. I highly encourage everyone to repeat this simple but very powerful prayer daily!

"Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My Mercy." (Diary 300)

"I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me."  (John 14:6)

 

EVANGELIZATION & JUDGEMENT DAY - JESUS CHRIST, AKA "THE DIVINE MERCY"

Do we honor Jesus? Do we trust, listen and obey Him?

"Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him." (John 5:23)

Evangelilzation of our brothers and sisters regardless of culture, language, etc is the primary mission of a true Christian and demonstrates that we honour "The Divine Mercy." Jesus Christ commands us to evangelize, it is not optional folks, under any circumstances - Jesus desires the salvation of "all souls." Also, there must be no barriers to people wanting to enter "The House of The Father" ... if there are, they must be removed (eg: language). Surely one's language, culture or any other "created thing" are not more important than putting God and His childrens' salvation FIRST - this cost Him His Life after all and we must never forget that fact! If these barriers are not removed and souls are lost (even just one soul), those responsible will have to answer to Jesus Christ, AKA, "The Divine Mercy" on "Judgement Day!"

"I desire that priests proclaim this great mercy of Mine towards souls of sinners. Let the sinner not be afraid to approach Me. The flames of mercy are burning Me - clamoring to be spent; I want to pour them out upon these souls ... Distrust on the part of souls is tearing at My insides. The distrust of a chosen soul causes Me even greater pain; despite My inexhaustible love for them they do not trust Me. Even My death is not enough for them. Woe to the soul that abuses these [gifts]." (Diary, 50)

See the page on Evangelilzation here.

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20)

The Two Greatest Commandments of Jesus Christ

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment."

"And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets." (Matthew 22:3-40)

Are You Ready For Judgement Day? 

"And when the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty. And all nations shall be gathered together before him, and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats:  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left. Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in: Naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me.  Then shall the just answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, and fed thee; thirsty, and gave thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and covered thee?  Or when did we see thee sick or in prison, and came to thee?  And the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me. Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry, and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave me not to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you covered me not: sick and in prison, and you did not visit me. Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee?  Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me. And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting." (Mathew 25:31-46)

"Oh, how painful it is to Me, that souls so seldom unite themselves to Me in Holy Communion. ... I love them tenderly and sincerely, and they distrust Me. ... In order that you may know at least some of My pain, imagine the most tender of mothers who has great love for her children, while those children spurn her love." (Diary, 1447)

 

“Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

The greatest among you shall be your servant. Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be humbled: and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted … Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites. You lock the kingdom of heaven before human beings. You do not enter yourselves, nor do you allow entrance to those trying to enter.  … Behold, your house will be abandonned, desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again till you say, ‘Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord’.” (Matthew 23:11-39)

Tell sinners that no one shall escape My Hand; if they run away from My Merciful Heart, they will fall into My Just Hands. Tell sinners that I am always waiting for them, that I listen intently to the beating of their heart ... when will it beat for Me? Write, that I am speaking to them through their remorse of conscience, through their failures and sufferings, through thunderstorms, through the voice of the Church. And if they bring all My graces to naught, I begin to be angry with them, leaving them alone and giving them what they want. (Diary, 1728)

There are souls with whom I can do nothing. They are souls that are continuously observing others, but know nothing of what is going on within their own selves. They talk about others continually, even during times of grand silence, which is reserved for speaking only with Me. Poor souls, they do not hear My words; their interior remains empty. They do not look for Me within their own hearts, but in idle talk, where I am never to be found. They sense their emptiness, but they do not recognize their own guilt, while souls in whom I reign completely are a constant source of remorse to them. Instead of correcting themselves, their hearts swell with envy, and if they do not come to their senses, they plunge in even deeper. A heart, which thus far is envious, now begins to be filled with hate. And they are already at the edge of the precipice. They are jealous of my gifts in other souls, but they themselves are unable and unwilling to accept them.
(Diary 1717)

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.” (Diary, 1032)

“Come to Me, all of you.” (Diary, 1485)

“The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness.”(Diary, 1397)

"I bear a special love for Poland, and if she will be obedient to My will, I will exalt her in might and holiness. From her will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming." (Diary 1732)

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be any more, for the former things are passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)
