In 1910 Father Hannibal di Francia joined a group of priests who attended a Divine Will Prayer Group around the bedside of Luisa. He became her extraordinary confessor. He founded two religious orders and was appointed Luisa's censor librorum by the Archbishop of Trani Joseph Leo.
In 1915 Hannibal began publishing her work entitled, The Hours of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In 1926 he appended to her first 19 volumes his nihil obstat while the Archbishop appended to them his imprimatur. Jesus told Luisa that He wanted Hannibal to be the "first apostle of the Divine Fiat."
