From the Back Cover
Luisa Piccarreta (1865-1947) was an important mystic with a startling message for our times. Her only nourishment during most of her long life was the Holy Eucharist. She kept a Diary of her spiritual experiences that grew to thirty-six volumes. The essence of her revelations concerns the fulfillment of this petition of the Lord's Prayer: "Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Her revelations and visions teach the way of personal sanctity and of life in the Divine Will, to prepare for a coming Era of Peace. In addition, she was a victim soul, who suffered for the salvation of others, for the reparation of sins, for souls in purgatory, and to mitigate God's chastisements of the world.
Her extraordinary Confessor was St. Annibale Di Francia, who bestowed the Nihil Obstat on the first nineteen volumes of her Diary, before his death. When St. Annibale read some of her revelations to Pope St. Pius X, the pope interrupted him, saying he should be reading these words to him while on his knees, since it is Jesus who is speaking. Her contemporary, St. Padre Pio, is reported to have said that the world will be astonished at her greatness.
The Church has initiated her Cause for beatification and canonization, permitting her to be titled Servant of God.

A very inspiring book I cannot recommend highly enough. Beautifully written. Never slow or obscure. As Padre Pio said, she is a revelation!
