There is no beauty that equals suffering for God alone.
I felt impressed in my interior by what I had written above, as if it were not according to the truth; so, as soon as I saw blessed Jesus, I said: ‘Lord, what I have written is not right; how can there be all this through mere suffering?’ And He: “My daughter (Luisa), do not be surprised. Indeed, there is no beauty that equals suffering for the Love of God alone. Two Arrows come from Me continuously: one from My Heart, which is of Love, and wounds all those who are on My Lap – that is, those who are in My Grace; this Arrow wounds, mortifies, heals, afflicts, attracts, reveals, consoles and continues My Passion and Redemption in those who are on My Lap. The other comes from My Throne, and I entrust it to the Angels who, as My Ministers, make this Arrow flow over any kind of people, chastising them and exciting all to conversion.” Now, while He was saying this, He shared His Pains with me, telling me: “Here in you (Luisa) also, is the continuation of Redemption.”

If the soul suffers distractions at Communion, it is a sign that she has not given herself completely to God.
Having heard from someone that she would get easily distracted at Communion, I was saying in my interior: ‘How is it possible to get distracted while being with You? Does one perhaps not remain all absorbed in You?’ Now, finding myself in my usual state, I was doing my usual interior things, and it was as if I could see some distractions wanting to enter into me, and Blessed Jesus put His Hands in front of them and did not let them in. Then He told me: “My daughter (Luisa), if the soul suffers distractions and disturbances, it is a sign that she has not given herself completely to Me. In fact, when the soul has given herself completely to Me, since she is My own thing, I (Jesus) know how to keep My Gift in good custody; but when they do not give Me everything, because of their free will I cannot keep that Special Custody, and they are forced to suffer importuning things, which disturb My Union with them. On the other hand, when the soul is all Mine, she makes no effort to remain calm; the commitment is all Mine to let nothing enter which may disturb our Union.”
