The Divine Will Association, set up in 1972 by Andrea Magnifico (spiritual son of Father Pio from Pietrelcina, Italy), with its head office in Sesto San Giovanni (Milan), was born with the overriding aim of researching, digitizing and diffusing all the original writings by the servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, who lived in Corato (Bari, Italy) from 1865 to 1947.

Luisa Piccarreta (1865-1947), known in her home town Corato as “Luisa, the Saint”, was stuck in bed for about 60 years by a night body stiffening started when she was just over 20 years old. [Read more]
The writings by Luisa Piccarreta are not a fruit from the bright pen of a woman writer, but are due to her obedience to Church, under the authority of her Confessors, among whom Saint Hannibal Mary DI FRANCIA. They are not, therefore, easy mystical literature by someone wishing to publicize her presumed visions or supernatural revelations; they are a painful testimony of a life crucified for love in long years in bed, lived by Luisa as a victim, in prayer and silence, hiding and obeying.
And it’s only obedienced that forced Luisa to write, even against her own will. Therefore the 36 volumes of her diary were not written by a writer’s culture or art, nor by her wish to let the others know her revelations or visions, nor by a false and dangerous mysticism, but by “Lady Obedience”!
Her writings show and offer us all her pains and love for Jesus, and the Gift of gifts, the supreme Gift of God’s Will, of God’s life to become His children’s life (the Kingdom of God, invoked by the Church and for which the Church is getting ready: the Divine Will to be the same on earth as it is in the Sky); but all this is received by us through Luisa’s life.
