When the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta finished writing the Hours of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ, as we had mentioned before, she sent them to Saint Hannibal Di Francia with a final manuscript attached to that letter, which we have already transcribed and published on this website. In that letter Louisa says the following, among other things:
"... I also include another sheet which contains the effects, and the beautiful promises which Jesus makes to anyone who does these Hours of the Passion."
We have stated previously the effects that the meditation of the Hours of the Passion produces in the soul that meditates them frequently. Now, we will introduce you to some of the beautiful promises that Our Lord makes to all those who meditate on the Hours of the Passion.
To those who do the Hours of the Passion, Jesus will grant His same merits, as if He were in the act of suffering His Passion.
Vol. 11, April 10, 1913
And I: «Tell me, my Good, what will You give as recompense to those who will do the Hours of the Passion the way You taught them to me?»
And He: «My daughter, I will look at these Hours, not as yours, but as done by Me. I will give you my same merits, as if I were in the act of suffering my Passion; and the same effects, according to the dispositions of the souls. This, while they are on earth - and I could not give them a greater reward. Then, in Heaven, I will place these souls in front of Me, darting through them with darts of love and of contentments for as many times as they did the Hours of my Passion; and they will dart through Me. What a sweet enchantment this will be for all the Blessed!»
If they do them together with Jesus and with His own Will, Jesus will grant them a soul for each word they recite, because the greater or lesser effectiveness of these Hours of the Passion is in the greater or lesser union that they have with Jesus.
Vol. 11, October 1914
«My daughter, as recompense for having written the Hours of my Passion, for each word you have written I will give you a kiss - a soul.»
And I: « My love, this is for me; and what will You give to those who will do them?»
And Jesus: «If they do them together with Me and with my own Will, I will also give them a soul for each word they will recite, because the greater or lesser effectiveness of these Hours of my Passion is in the greater or lesser union that they have with Me. By doing them with my Will, the creature hides within my Volition, and since it is my Volition that acts, I can produce all the goods I want, even through one word alone; and this, for each time you will do them.»
