Corato Italy , July 23, We are glad to inform you that the second Theologian, which the Holy see had appointed to review the Writings of the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta, has completed his task and given his approval. Background of the Cause for Beatification and Canonization. On October 29, His Excellency, Bishop Giovanni Battista Pichierri, completing the diocesan inquiry 'Inchiesta diocesana' on the fame of holiness of the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta, with the collection of testimonies and documents, referred the final decision on her sanctity to the Holy Father.
Then the lawyer, Dr. She is responsible for several other causes of beatification and canonization, including Vietnamese Cardinal Francois-Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan.
In relation to the cause of Cardinal Van Thuan, this is the first time the Holy See, through one of the Vatican dicasteries, has confided a cause of beatification to a woman. In a letter of , the Archbishop of Trani, reported, "that the Congregation for the Cause of Saints, hoping to issue the decree on the legal validity of the Diocesan Investigation 'Inchistesa diocesana' , had submitted for consideration by the Theological Censors the writings of the Servant of God in accordance with Canonical norms and existing practice.
Trani, May 30, Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. After almost three years, today, they have successfully completed this activity, and we have received a positive concept from both theological experts. The work of the Theological Censors. Before , some 1 of the writings of Luisa had already received a "Nihil Obstat" Nothing contrary to the Doctrine of the Faith by St. Bishop Leo. In addition to this previous study, the Congregation of Saints, according to the norms and practices, states that all the writings of a Servant of God must be subject to review by at least two theological censors whose names must remain secret , before formally starting the process at the Holy See.
Since the diocesan process had not yet completed this task, the Congregation ordered to first complete this requirement in order to be able to issue the decree on the legal validity of the diocesan investigation and initiate the Roman Process.
The theological censors appointed by the Church, must examine the writings and verify that there is nothing in them contrary to faith and morals. They should also describe in their opinion the personality and spirituality of the Servant of God 2.
Cause Continued. Having met all the prerequisites positively, we trust God that the next step is the issuance of the decree to enter the Cause at the Holy See. The introduction of the Cause for Beatification and Canonization of Luisa Piccarreta to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, means that the Church, taking particular account of this case, after having made a careful study of all the documents, opens a canonical process to further study her life, virtues and miracles.
All this is done bearing in mind the affirmation by the Church of the sanctity of a Servant of God, and thus placing the final seal of authenticity on her universal message for the Church. This is a very joyful moment for those of us, who base our spiritual formation on the doctrine of the Divine Will in fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church. This may be the final step that opens the door to the road leading to the official recognition by the Church of the holiness of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.
The purpose of this review is also to recognize the purity of the doctrine on the Divine Will in the writings of Luisa, which had been questioned by some who failed to recognize the opinion already given by Saint Hannibal Mary Di Francia, who was the first censor of these writings when Luisa was still alive.
At this particular time, donations for the cause are essential to its continuation and, at the same time, are a sign of communion between all groups and followers of the Divine Will inspired by the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.
Donations should be sent directly to the Secretariat of the Cause in Trani:. Reference Bank Account: Pia Ass. Luisa Piccarreta. Via L. February 10, The doctrine on my Will is the purest, the most beautiful, and not subject to any shadow of the material or of interest, both in the supernatural and in the natural order.
Therefore, like sun, it will be the most penetrating, the most fecund, and the most welcomed and appreciated. In addition, being light, of its own it will make itself understood and will make its way. It will not be subject to doubts or suspicions of error; and if some word is not understood, it will be because of too much light, which eclipsing the human intellect, will not allow them to comprehend the whole fullness of the truth.
However, they will find not a word, which is not truth. At the most, they will not be able to comprehend it fully. Therefore, in view of the good, which I see, I push you to neglect nothing in writing. One saying, one effect, one simile about my Will can be like beneficial dew upon souls, just as dew is beneficial on the plants after a day of burning sun, or like a pouring rain after long months of drought.
You cannot understand all the good, the light, the strength contained in each word; but your Jesus knows it, and knows the ones whom it must serve and the good it must do.
Now, as He was saying this, He showed me a table in the middle of the Church, and all the writings about the Divine Will placed upon it. Many venerable people surrounded that table and became transformed into light and divinized; and as they walked, they communicated that light to whomever they encountered. Then Jesus added: "You will see this great good from Heaven, when the Church will receive this celestial food, which will strengthen Her and make Her rise again in Her full triumph.
COM c. A monument to the apostle of prayer for priestly vocations and apostle of the Kingdom of the Divine Will, has been placed in the center of Catholicism: the Saint Peter Basilica at the Vatican.
The statue, carved in Carrara marble, weights nearly 10 tons and is 5. Some of the Daughters of the Divine Zeal and some Fathers of the Rogationists, including the Postulator General were present during this event.
Monuments of the main holy founders of religious institutions surround the Plaza of Roman Protomartyrs. The request to place a monument of St. Hannibal outside the St. Peter Basilica was made to the Holy See for religious congregations founded by St.
Father Di Francia, as a tribute to its founder in an effort to spread his holiness and charisma, especially after his canonization. It will be the cause of great joy when on Wednesday July 7 the Holy Father will bless the statue of St. Hannibal Di Francia. The monument is truly a great gift and a tribute of the Church to the charismatic figure of Saint Hannibal, known throughout the world as a worthy apostle of prayer for vocations as well as great apostle of the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
Six years after his canonization, his impressive image is located in the heart of Christianity. Father Hannibal has always nurtured and expressed feelings of deep love and obedience to the Vicar of Christ, which he has passed on to his spiritual children as a sign of unconditional loyalty. He constantly pointed at the 'Rogate', as the infallible and vital remedy for the life of the Church.
Therefore, the marble statue at the Saint Peter Basilica also becomes a demonstration of his devotion to the Pope. Master Giuseppe Ducrot sculpted this work from a single block of Carrara marble.
The statue of Father Hannibal is holding the book of the Gospels opened in the Rogate passage, "The harvest indeed is abundant, but the laborers are few. Pray Rogate therefore the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into his harvest. May 4, Who reviewed and gave Nulla Obstat to the Writings of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, inspires and guides those who now read her writings.
Who published and disseminated these writings helps in this sacred task all those whom God inspires the timely publication of them. Who overflowed with the divine light of the doctrine of the Divine Will intercedes for us so that we, by constantly dying to our will, can continually live in the Divine Will. We entrust ourselves to St. Hannibal Maria Di Francia to obtain for us the spiritual graces needed to know, understand and fully live in the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Let pray also for the General Chapter of the Rogationist Fathers whose realization occurs on the same date.
Relationship between St. Besides being her extraordinary confessor in , Father Hannibal was commissioned directly by the Archbishop Mgr Giuseppe M. Leo through regular order, as the Ecclesiastical Censor for the publications of the three dioceses Trani, Barletta and Bisceglie; particularly, the review of all the writings that Luisa had written up to that date. Di Francia began publishing them after having obtained the Imprimatur of the Archbishop. In a letter to Luisa, Father Hannibal recalled her that the archbishop had given him, "jurisdiction over you, your writings, and the publication of them, i.
Hannibal enjoys unlimited confidence by Archbishop Leo, as evidenced by extensive documentation. This occupation took him steadily, to almost distract him from his commitments of founder: "I want you to know that since I have totally dedicated myself to the great work of the Divine Will, I practically don't concern myself at all with my institutes. I talk about it with spiritual people, I keep to this point with those who are able to listen and I promote it as much as I can, even in my institutes Feb 14, Hannibal to the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.
