About the Divine Will

The 8th September 1889 marks the beginning of the Era of the Kingdom of the Divine Will on earth.  On this day Luisa Piccarreta received the Gift from Jesus.  For 2000 years Christians have been praying the Our Father: "Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven".  This Gift is the answer to that prayer.  

 

The Gift of the Divine Will is now available to everyone. Its purpose is to enable God to receive perfect love and glory from the whole human family.

Luisa has written 36 volumes entitled The Book of Heaven.  This title was given by Jesus Himself.  He also gave the subtitle "The recall of the Creature to the Order, to the Place and to the Purpose for which He was created by God".

Divine Will Family Mission

The Mission of Divine Will Family is the furtherance of the teachings of Jesus Christ through the promotion of Divine Will spirituality in the writings of Luisa Piccarreta in the Book of Heaven; by contemplative prayer, fellowship, unity and surrender to God’s Divine Will in everything for the benefit of the people of Ireland and worldwide.

Indeed, the Creator has infused in each soul the ability to participate in His operating in all three of His Fiats: Creation, Redemption and Sanctification. The key is to respond with our own Fiat/Yes! 

Therefore, a key part of our mission is to deepen our interior souls to allow God to act – thus, allowing ‘His Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven’. It can truthfully be said that the prayer of the Our Father is, in essence, the Mission Statement of the Divine Will Family. 

 

We in DWF aim to live in Divine Will as an integral part of our lives; to spread the knowledge of Divine Will throughout the country and worldwide, to give back to Our Heavenly Father the right and the glory that is His from the very beginning of Creation, from the moment of His first FIAT – that is, to be loved, adored, thanked, praised, blessed and glorified by all of His creatures continuously.

“…and this will begin the fulfillment of my prayer, and the prayer of the whole Church: ‘Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as It is in Heaven’.”

Background

Jesus said “… the title you will give to the book you will print about My Will is this: ‘The Kingdom of my Divine Will in the midst of creatures - Book of Heaven. The call of the creature to the order, the place and the purpose for which he was created by God’. 

Book of Heaven, Volume 19, August 27, 1926 

 

God wants to give the gift of His Divine Will and to share the knowledge of His Gift of the Divine Will, which is The essence of God, with His children, that is, all of the people of the world. 

 

Living united with God's Will is the fundamental message revealed to us by our Lord Jesus Christ, in the Lord's Prayer

"...your Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven".  Matt:6:9

History

In the early 1990’s a group of American ladies brought news of a wonderful, new spirituality that was blossoming in the USA to Saint Catherine’s, Salesian House, Maynooth, Ireland.  They said it would change our lives forever.  Fr. Michael Ross S.D.B. and Joe Kennedy, founders of Divine Will in Ireland invited Fr. Celso and Tom Fahy to bring the good news of this truth to Ireland. 

 

A number of Divine Will Priests and Speakers including Fr. Tom Celso, Fr. Tim Sockol, Fr. John Brown, Fr Robert Young, Frances Hogan and Tony Hickey gave Divine Will retreats in Ireland on Luisa’s writings. Fr. Michael Ross led a group to Trani and Corato to consult with the Archbishop Carmelo Cessati, who gave them guidance on how to proceed with the apostolate of Divine Will in Ireland.

 

Tony published a booklet in 1997 “Living in the Kingdom of the Divine Will” intending it as a simple aid to living and praying in the Divine Will as taught by Jesus to the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.  It has Ecclesiastical approval by Archbishop Carmelo Cassati.  Over 4,000 copies of this booklet together with two talks have been distributed in Ireland.

 

Many small Divine Will prayer groups were formed in Ireland due to the efforts of many dedicated people who were spreading knowledge of Divine Will countrywide.

 

In 2016 a Divine Will Hours of the Passion clock was setup.  There are now numerous clocks in operation throughout the country and worldwide.

 

In the last ten years, the well-known Scripture Scholar, Frances Hogan, has been teaching Divine Will spirituality in a structured method integrating scripture references, thereby validating the writings given to Luisa in the Book of Heaven.  

 


Origins


The Divine Will Family had its origins in Ireland back in the 2010.


It all began from the humble beginnings when Frances Hogan held weekly readings of Scripture and later Divine Will to groups of people around her kitchen table and Divine Will Family followed.

“For this is what the Lord has commanded us: I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth”. Acts 13:47

Frances Hogan responded to the calling of the Lord and imparted her knowledge, wisdom and love of the Lord to all who attended her classes. Her members grew in spirituality, as they were fed and nourished on the Word and love of God in Scripture and Divine Will Spirituality.

 

Description

DWF is under the providence of Divine Will and the guidance of our Founder and Spiritual Director, Frances Hogan.  Divine Will Family clg is a national organisation comprising of a Board of Directors, Spiritual Director, Core Management Team, Leadership Teams and Facilitation Teams with more than 500 members – in DWF Study Teams and Prayer Groups spread throughout Ireland - all working in a voluntary capacity to respond to, live and fulfill the calling of God in their lives in Divine Will Family; under the protection of Blessed Trinity and The Holy Family. 

 

The objective of DWF is to spread the knowledge and love of Divine Will to as many people as are called to live it. Jesus taught Luisa Piccarreta His plan for the new Era of the Divine Holiness and asked that His teachings be proclaimed as the apostles made known the Gospels. The teachings are to re-establish the Lord’s Divine Will on earth after Adam chose his human will to sin.

Jesus said in the Book of Heaven: 


“This is why I told you, many times that the mission of calling a soul to live in My Will is the greatest one, the highest and most sublime; there is no other that can match it”.
