BOOK OF HEAVEN
Firmness Produces Heroism.
Continuing in my usual state, I was lamenting to Jesus about my poor state, and He told me: “My daughter (Luisa), Courage, do not move in anything. Firmness is the Greatest Virtue. Firmness Produces Heroism, and it is almost impossible for one not to be a great saint. Rather, as she keeps repeating her acts, she forms two bars – one to the right, and the other to the left – which serve her as support and defense; and as she reiterates her acts, a Fount forms in her, of New and Increasing Love. Firmness Strengthens Grace, placing on it the Seal of Final Perseverance. Your Jesus does not fear that His Graces may remain without Effects, and therefore I pour them in torrents over a constant soul. There is not very much to expect from a soul who works today, and tomorrow does not – who now does some Good, and now some other. She will not have any support, and will be bounced now to one point, now to another. She will die of starvation, because she will not have the Fount of Firmness, which makes Love Arise. Grace fears to pour Itself, because she will abuse it, and use it to offend Me.”
