Come, let us together cover with the Precious Blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ Our Lord and God, every day and every hour if possible of the New Year, and yes, of the New Decade, as well; so that it may be a great and glorious Year and whole Decade, for the Church, for the world; and the preparation for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, also called as, the Kingdom of the Divine Will, in the writings of Servant of God Luisa Piccaretta, as we know. With New Year having dawned, it is Christ's Feast of Circumcision we celebrate today in the Traditional Liturgy, when He shed His Blood for the first time; and Whose Mother's Feast as Mother of God we celebrate today in the New Liturgy, and we remember She became the Living Tabernacle of His Body and His Blood. Let us offer our lives to the Infant Jesus and to His Holy Mother on this festive day, and implore His Blood and Protection throughout the decade. Our Lord Jesus, praising Quas' Primas of Pope Pius XI, which declared the Social Kingship of Christ, and declaring the Kingdom of His Divine Will, revealed to Servant of God Luisa Piccaretta, a very important meditation focused on the Passion, that enables us to gain priceless graces, and do God's Will 24*7 in our lives. That it is God's Will we accept and practice this devotion in our lives should be enough and sufficient reason for us all to do so. But there are many others. First, Papal Approvals going back more than a 100 years, from His Holiness Pope St. Pius X. These words of Our Lord Jesus, said the Saintly Vicar of the same Lord Jesus, should rather be read kneeling than even standing, so precious are They. Second, Devotion to the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ is so great and so priceless a grace that by it any man or woman, even if before that we were the worst and greatest of all sinners, can easily become saints, and even great saints. This is the doctrine of the Saints themselves, and were there no other, we all should practice this devotion. "Several witnesses relate that one day Father Annibale came to the house of Luisa more content than ever, and said that he had brought this book to the Holy Father, Saint Pious X, who had received him several times in private audience. Father Anniable was reading him one of the Hours (that of the Crucifixion), when the Pope interrupted, saying: “Not this way, Father, but kneeling one must read. It is Jesus Christ that is speaking.” Finally, Father Annibale, as Censor of the writings, obtained the Imprimatur from His Excellency the Archbishop of Trani for the volumes written by Luisa (at that time there were already nineteen)." https://www.queenofthedivinewill.org/st-pius-x/ "‘When Pope John Paul II was about to beatify Fr. Annibale di Francia on October 7, 1990, the then Msgr. Ratzinger, Cardinal and Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (formerly, the Holy Office,) was informed by my father, Jose Luis Acuna, in May 1990, in a private audience that some of the books published by the Father Annibale di Francia whom His Holiness was going to beatify had been “condemned.” Therefore, the Cardinal had to investigate this matter personally, whether there was an error or not, and the result was that Fr. Annibale was beatified with no hinderance, after having investigated the matter and with full knowledge of it. Not only this, but His Emminence said in private to Msgr. Ricardo Guizar, who was then our Bishop of Atlacomulco, Mexico, that “All of the Writings of Luisa must be approved”. https://bookofheaven.org/who-is-lui...ll-of-the-writings-of-luisa-must-be-approved/ Exhortation [from St. Annibale Maria di Francia] "O souls who love Jesus Christ, O souls who make a profession of spiritual life, and especially you, Spouses of Jesus Christ, consecrated to Him either through vows or by belonging to sacred Congregations, consider from all that has been said above, how much pleasure you give to the Most Holy Heart of Jesus by practicing these Hours of the Passion. It is for you, in a special way, that these Hours of the Passion have been inspired by Our Lord in that solitary and contemplative soul, who has been practicing them for many years with great profit to herself and to the whole Holy Church. Special graces have been reserved for you if you take to heart this holy daily exercise, penetrating the same sentiments and the same dispositions as those of the soul who dictated it, and who has been practicing it for many years. From the sentiments, so intimate, and from the dispositions, so loving, of this soul, you will pass into the very sentiments and dispositions of Jesus Christ Our Lord, during the 24 Hours in which He suffered for love of us. And it is impossible for the soul, in this compassionating exercise, not to encounter the most sorrowful Mother Mary, and not to unite to the same compassion and the very incomprehensible affections of the Sorrowful Mother of God! It will be like living with Jesus suffering, and with Mary Co-Redeeming, gathering immense eternal goods for oneself and for all! What to say about how great this tool would be for each Religious Community in order to advance in holiness, to be preserved, to grow in the number of chosen souls, and to obtain true prosperity? How much commitment, then, should each Community have in the constant practice of this pious exercise! And the souls of that Community who attend Holy Mass daily would receive Communion with such dispositions of fervor, and with such love for Jesus, that each Communion would be a renewed marriage of the soul with Jesus in the most intimate and increasing Union of Love! If because of one soul alone doing these Hours, Jesus would spare a city chastisements, and would give grace to as many souls for as many as are the words of these sorrowful Hours, how many graces could a Community [or any group of faithful] hope for; from how many defects and relaxations would it be healed or preserved; and for how many souls would it obtain Sanctification and Salvation by practicing this pious exercise! If only there were one soul in each Community, who would apply herself to practicing it with more attention during the day, at times even in the midst of daily occupations, and also in the evening, and at nighttime with a little bit of vigil…! But it would be the Summit of the Divine, and the Maximum Profit for that Community and for the Whole World, if this Exercise were practiced by All, in turns Day and Night!"
