Our highest goal in life is to return to the original state of holiness in which God created us, so we can share in His Divine life, as Adam did before original sin. Jesus tells Luisa we can attain this when the soul FREELY wants to do the will of God, and through the gift of His Divine Will to us, God can form “His life” in us. By God’s grace, such profound communion is possible. This union of two wills – human and divine – like two hearts beating and willing as one, is called FUSION.

Jesus wants this fusion, as He instituted the Eucharist to fuse Himself to us. Our human will is dissolved in the Divine Will, like the drops of water are dissolved in the chalice wine during Offertory, and the priest prays “Through the mystery of this water and wine, may we come to share in the Divinity of Christ who humbled Himself to share in our humanity.” 

What the Catholic Church says about fusion with Jesus

Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father

Fusion with Jesus is the only way to restore our original holiness.  We return to the Father through His Son Jesus, the perfect model of holiness.  True God and true man, Jesus is the only mediator between His Eternal Father and man (CCC 480) as He says to John “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).

Jesus always did what was pleasing to the Eternal Father and lived in perfect union with Him (CCC 1693).  Fused with Jesus, we attain this same union with God’s Divine Will.  The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that:

CCC 482 Christ, being true God and true man, has a human intellect and will, perfectly attuned and subject to his divine intellect and divine will, which he has in common with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Man CAN Share in the divine nature

All that Jesus reveals to Luisa about the process of fusion with His Humanity, and thus His Divinity are consistent with what is known in the Catholic Church as “Divinization” or “theosis” – the transforming effect of divine grace to make man more like God. Fused with Jesus, human acts become “divinized”.

CCC 460 The Word became flesh to make us “partakers of the divine nature“:78 “For this is why the Word became man, and the Son of God became the Son of man: so that man, by entering into communion with the Word and thus receiving divine sonship, might become a son of God.”79For the Son of God became man so that we might become god.”80 “The only-begotten Son of God, wanting to make us sharers in his divinity, assumed our nature, so that he, made man, might make men gods.”

Many church fathers and theologians proclaim the same:

What is fusion in the Divine Will?

Fusion is the entry point to the sanctity of living in the Divine Will: we exchange our human will with the Divine Will. We fuse our human will to the human will of Jesus. His human will is hypostatically united to the Divine Will, thus giving us access to the Divine Will. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches:

CCC 521 Christ enables us to live in him all that he himself lived, and he lives it in us. “By his Incarnation, he, the Son of God, has in a certain way united himself with each man.”

When our human will operate in union with Christ’s human will, we gain access to His Divine Will. Fusing all we do with Jesus’ holy Humanity puts us in continuous contact with God and His Divinity. Jesus explains this to Luisa in the Book of Heaven Volume 6 – October 17, 1904:

My daughter, it is necessary to operate through the veil of the Humanity of Christ in order to find the Divinity – that is, to operate united with His Humanity, with the very Will of Christ, as if His Will and that of the soul were one, in order to please Him alone; operating with His very ways, directing everything to Christ, calling Him in everything the soul does, as if He Himself were to do her very actions.  By doing this, the soul finds herself in continuous contact with God.

Why do we fuse?

Through fusion, the Divine Will works in each person and the person works in the Divine Will in a divine way.  We aren’t just doing what God wants us to do, but we let His Will become our Will and His life our life, so that we live and reign with and in His Will.  This continuous exchange between human and Divine Will restores the divine likeness that man lost through sin, restoring our original state of holiness and justice in which we were created by God.

How do we fuse?

To fuse, we start in humility, acknowledging our nothingness before God. We remove our human will, then make a firm resolution in our soul to live only in the Divine Will. Jesus promises to assist us when we weaken in our resolve. He explains in detail to Luisa:

In fact, it is as if the little stone of her will prevent the water from flowing from the shore to run somewhere else, because the stones are blocking itBut if the soul removes the little stone of her will, at that very instant she flows into Me, and I into her; she finds all my goods at her disposal:  strength, light, help – whatever she wantsThis is why there are no paths, nor doors, nor keys – it is enough to want it, and everything is done.  My Will takes charge of everything, and of giving her what she lacks, and it makes her wander freely within the interminable boundaries of my Will.” (Book of Heaven, Volume 12 – February 16, 1921)

Jesus asks Luisa to fuse all of herself in His Will – dissolving all her prayers and works, her will and love in Him – so that He may pour all His acts into her:

“Imagine a glass of water, which is poured into a large container of water. Would you be able to distinguish, afterwards, the water of the glass from the water of the container? Certainly not…..Therefore, to your greatest gain and my highest contentment, repeat to Me often, and in whatever you do: ‘Jesus, I pour it into You, that I may do not my will, but Yours; and I, immediately, will pour my acting into you.”(Book of Heaven, Volume 12 – January 13, 1918).

What happens when we fuse?

Jesus describes to Luisa in Book of Heaven, Volume 12 – July 25, 1917 how fusion purifies the soul who desires to live in His Will.

“You must know that the most noble, the most sublime, the greatest, the most heroic act is to do my Will and to operate in my Volition… in the act in which the two wills meet to be fused into each other and become one, if she is stained, I purify her; if the thorns of the human nature enwrap her, I shatter them; and if some nail pierces her – that is, sin – I pulverize it, because nothing evil can enter my Will.  Even more, all my attributes invest her and change weakness into fortitude, ignorance into wisdom, misery into richness, and so with all the rest.  In the other acts something from herself always remains, but in these she remains completely stripped of herself, and I fill her completely with Myself.”

Fusing with Jesus’ Divine Will fills oneself with all His qualities. Jesus explains this to Luisa in the Book of Heaven, Volume 11 – August 27, 1915:

“…when a soul fuses herself in my Will, it happens as when two containers, full of different fluids, are poured one into the other; each one of them remains filled with what the other contained.  In the same way, the creature remains filled with Me, and I with her.  And since my Will contains Sanctity, Beauty, Power, Love, etc., the soul, filling herself with Me – fusing and abandoning herself in my Will – arrives at being filled with my own Sanctity, my Love, my Beauty, etc., in the most perfect way given to a creature.”
