Dear brothers and sisters, Fiat!

If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and will make our abode with him”.

How should we love Jesus? By observing, putting into practice His word, the great, profound and true word that the Gospel gives us, the word of eternal life that Jesus said for the world and for each one of us. And here we can remember, from time to time, some words of Jesus ... so let's observe, let's live His word.

In this way, Jesus says that a great thing happens: God the Father expresses all His love towards us, the Father comes into us, together with Jesus and dwells in us. God dwells in the heart of the human person, in my poor heart which is poor humanly, but possesses the greatest richness: God Himself in His communion of love.

Jesus continues in the Gospel: The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you. The gift of the Father and the Son is the Spirit. We call Spirit as God Love, we contemplate Him in all His works, we invoke Him through the prayer of the heart; The Spirit is light and strength for our life. He reminds us and teaches us the things of Jesus, as He did in the early days of the Church, as the first reading says to us " It is the decision of the Holy Spirit and of us not to place on you any burden beyond these necessities,..." for  the Christian life that the Lord wants to offer to all peoples.

The life in the Divine Will is God's eternal dwelling in the soul of man. On March 13, 1932, Jesus explained to Luisa that the soul who enters into the Divine Will converts into light, and all her acts, without losing anything of their diversity, of their nature, and of what they are in themselves, are vivified and animated by light. So, all the acts, though distinct among themselves, have the light of the Fiat as life; and the Fiat delights in forming, with Its life of light, now the thought, the word, the work, the step and so forth; and the soul, as the original heaven animated by the Fiat, forms with her acts the sun, the stars, the sea that always murmurs, the wind that moans, that speaks, that shouts, that whistles, that caresses and forms its refreshments. She gives divine light to her Creator, to herself, and she descends unto the lowest ground of creatures; and since the light is fecund and has the virtue of diffusing everywhere by itself, she forms the most beautiful flowerings, but all invested with light.

And here is how the Divine Will repeats Its beloved Creation in the soul who lives in Its light; or rather, an even more beautiful one, because the Creation is mute, and if It eloquently speaks, It does so always in Its mute language; while the creation It forms in the soul is all speaking. The sun speaks of her works, the sea of her thoughts, the wind of her words; the treading of her steps which, as she walks, leaves the virtues of its flowers, and everything she does, speak like brilliant stars which, with their twinkling, pray, love, praise, bless, repair and thank continuously, without ever ceasing, that Supreme Fiat which, with so much love, delights in forming in them the beautiful speaking creation, all animated by Its divine light.

It is no wonder that  Jesus forms His continual dwelling in the midst of this speaking creation, which the Divine Will forms for Him. It would be more surprising if Jesus were not there, because the Owner, the King who has formed it for Himself with so much love, would be missing. Why form it if Jesus were not to dwell inside of it and enjoy His lovely speaking creation? More so, since in this speaking creation there is always work to do, always something to add. Each of its acts is one more voice that it acquires, and which, with all eloquence, speaks to Jesus of His love and of it; and He must listen to it.

Jesus says: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; I do not give it to you as the world does. Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage. How is the world going? What peace does it give? And when there is peace somewhere, what peace is it? Often, it is not the harmony of peoples who seek the common good of each other, but the compromise or fragile balance between selfishness and particular interests

But Jesus came to give us the true peace: "Glory to God and peace on earth". The peace of Jesus is full life, because It is His life, His love, His sacrifice, His plan of salvation for all men.

The peace of Jesus is also and above all the peace of consciences, the grace of Jesus, His mercy, the new heart that He fills with His Spirit.
