Luisa Piccarreta

Padre Pio said about her:

"The world would be astonished at the greatness of Luisa Piccarreta."

Luisa Piccarreta is one of the greatest mystics in the history of the Church.
Only one thought occupies her – to live in His Will

Padre Pio sent many people to Luisa Piccarreta and would say to the people of Corato who went to San Giovanni Rotondo:
"What have you come here for? You have Luisa, go to her".

Luisa Piccarreta (1865-1947) lived almost exclusively on the Holy Eucharist for about 60 years.  During her revelations on the Divine Will, Christ also revealed to her many details of what His Humanity did while on earth, and also the acts of His Divinity within His Humanity. All authorized theologians appointed by the Church during the past century to evaluate her writings have declared that there is nothing contrary to Catholic teaching in her works. 

Although none of the original works of Luisa Piccarreta were ever censured by the Church, at one time some versions of her writings, edited by others, were placed on the Index.  This did not include any of her Diaries.  When her Cause for Beatification and Canonization was officially proposed, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, nullified the condemnations of the Index, thereby removing the impediment to her Cause.  Thus on the Feast of Christ the King, Sunday November 20, 1994, the process for the Cause of the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta, was finally opened.

My impression from reading articles by those few who have difficulty with her revelations, is that they usually rely on secondary sources for their information, refer to collections of isolated excerpts of her writings, and have not read the original Italian.  Regarding such objections, Luisa reports on January 8, 1900 that the Lord told her: "however, I assure you that they will not find even the shadow of vice or anything that is not virtuous, because while you are writing, I myself am guiding your hand; at the most they will find what appears at first to look like an error, but upon looking into it closer, they will find that it is truthful".   

From my experience, those who actually start to read her books for themselves, become touched by their transcendent spirituality and convinced of their authenticity and value.

Nov 1, 2012: His Eminence Archbishop Pichierri, who is responsible for Luisa Piccarreta's cause, rejects the claim that there are doctrinal errors in her writings.  Further, not only is it not prohibited to spread the knowledge of her life and of her writings, but it is desireable to do so.

July 24, 2010: THE SECOND THEOLOGIAN ASSIGNED TO EVALUATE THE WRITINGS OF LUISA PICCARRETA BY THE VATICAN CONGREGATION FOR THE CAUSES OF THE SAINTS HAS GIVEN A POSITIVE, THAT IS,  FAVORABLE JUDGMENT. This means that both of the official censors librorum for the cause of Luisa have found nothing contrary to the faith in her writings, and her cause can now go forward.
