Benefits of Repairing for Others – Why God is not Known and Loved

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

The Benefits of Repairing for Others.

Luisa_Piccarreta_5I was very afflicted because of the privation of my adorable Jesus, and I cried bitterly; and as I was doing the Hours of the Passion, a thought tormented me, saying to me: “Look at what good your reparations for others have done to you: they have caused you to let Jesus escape you”; and much more nonsense… But blessed Jesus, moved to compassion by my tears, pressed me to His Heart and told me: “My daughter (Luisa), you are My goad – My Love is cornered by your violences. If you knew how much I (Jesus) suffer in seeing you (Luisa) suffer because of Me! But it is Justice that wants to pour Itself out, and your very violences force Me to hide. Things will rage more; therefore, patience. Besides, know that the reparations done for others have done great good to you, because in repairing for others, you (Luisa) intended to do what I did, and I (Jesus) repaired for all, and also for you; I asked forgiveness for all, I grieved for the offenses of all, and I also asked forgiveness for you, and for you also I grieved. Therefore, as you (Luisa) do what I (Jesus) did, you also take the Reparations, the Forgiveness and the Sorrow I had for you. So, what could do more good to you – My Reparations, My Forgiveness, My Sorrow, or yours? And then, I (Jesus) never let Myself be surpassed in Love. When I see that, for love of Me, the soul is all intent on repairing Me, loving Me, apologizing to Me and asking forgiveness for sinners, to give her tit for tat I (Jesus) ask forgiveness for her in a special way, I Repair and Love for her, and I keep embellishing her soul with My Love, with My Reparations and Forgiveness. Therefore, continue to repair, and do not raise conflicts between you and Me.”

11/30/30 – Vol. 28

The reason why God is not known and loved:  because they think that He is the God far away from creatures, while He is the Inseparable One. 

I was doing my round in the Creation, to follow the acts that the Divine Fiat does in the created things; and as I arrived at Eden, it seemed to me that my lovable Jesus was waiting for me to be able to communicate to me the love, the goodness, the sanctity, the power and everything He did in creating man, pouring all of Himself into him, to the point of filling him completely with Himself and with His Divine Qualities—but so much, to the point of overflowing outside, giving him the task, as the highest honor for man, to avail himself of His Love, Goodness, Sanctity and Power in order to carry out his life in the very Goods of He who had created him.

I felt as though soaked with the Divine Qualities, and my sweet Jesus told me:  “My daughter (Luisa), man was created to be inseparable from God; and if He is not Known and Loved, it is precisely because they think that God is the Being far away from man, as if we had nothing to do—either he with Us, or God with him.  To believe Him far away causes God to be dispersed from man, and everything I had in creating him, Our very Divine Qualities, remain weakened, suffocated and, for many, as if they had no life; while Our Divinity is not far away, but close—even more, inside of man, and in all his acts We are Actors and Spectators.  Therefore, Our (the Divine Trinity) Sorrow is great in seeing that the creatures consider Us and believe that We are far away from them, and therefore they neither know Us nor love Us.

“To think of Us as far away is the deadly iron that kills the love of the creature toward the Creator; distance breaks any friendship.  Who can ever think of loving, of knowing and of hoping from a faraway Being?  No one.  And We are forced to repeat:  ‘We are with them—inside of them, and it seems that they do not know Us; and while their love, their will, by not loving Us, are far away from Us, they say that We are far away from them.’  And this is the reason for which some, who have read My Intimacies with you (Luisa), have reached the point of doubting—it is precisely this:  because they think that I AM the faraway God, and being far away, so many Intimacies between you (Luisa) and Me could not take place.

“Now, My daughter (Luisa), do you want to know who makes God be felt alive in the heart of the creature?  My Divine Will Reigning in her.  In fact, not giving life to the human will, My Fiat makes her feel, vividly, Its Love, Its Power, Its Goodness and Sanctity that run in all the acts of the creature.  For her there isn’t the faraway God, but the God who is close and Primary Life of her life and of all her acts.  Therefore, the Living in My Divine Will maintains the Vigor of all the Goods that We gave to man in creating him, and makes of him the Throne of God and His Glory, where He Dominates and Reigns.”

The Feast Day of Saint Andrew, the Apostle

 

THE FEAST DAY OF SAINT ANDREW

saint-andrew-gift

November 30

The name “Andrew” (Gr., andreia, manhood, or valour), like other Greek names, appears to have been common among the Jews from the second or third century B.C.

St. Andrew, the Apostle, son of Jonah, or John (Matthew 16:17; John 1:42), was born in Bethsaida of Galilee (John 1:44). He was brother of Simon (Peter) (Matthew 10:2; John 1:40). Both were fishermen (Matthew 4:18; Mark 1:16), and at the beginning of Our Lord’s public life occupied the same house at Capharnaum (Mark 1:21, 29).

From the fourth Gospel we learn that Andrew was a disciple of the Baptist, whose testimony first led him and John the Evangelist to follow Jesus (John 1:35-40). Andrew at once recognized Jesus as the Messias, and hastened to introduce Him to his brother, Peter, (John 1:41). Thenceforth the two brothers were disciples of Christ. On a subsequent occasion, prior to the final call to the apostolate, they were called to a closer companionship, and then they left all things to follow Jesus (Luke 5:11; Matthew 4:19-20; Mark 1:17-18).

Finally Andrew was chosen to be one of the Twelve; and in the various lists of Apostles given in the New Testament (Matthew 10:2-4); Mark 3:16-19; Luke 6:14-16; Acts 1:13) he is always numbered among the first four. The only other explicit reference to him in the Synoptists occurs in Mark 13:3, where we are told he joined with Peter, James and John in putting the question that led to Our Lord’s great eschatological discourse. In addition to this scanty information, we learn from the fourth Gospel that on the occasion of the miraculous feeding of the five thousand, it was Andrew who said: “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fishes: but what are these among so many?” (John 6:8-9); and when, a few days before Our Lord’s death, certain Greeks asked Philip that they might see Jesus, Philip referred the matter to Andrew as to one of greater authority, and then both told Christ (John 12:20-22). Like the majority of the Twelve, Andrew is not named in the Acts except in the list of the Apostles, where the order of the first four is Peter, John, James, Andrew; nor have the Epistles or the Apocalypse any mention of him.

St. Andrew with CrossIt is generally agreed that he was crucified by order of the Roman Governor, Aegeas or Aegeates, at Patrae in Achaia, and that he was bound, not nailed, to the cross, in order to prolong his sufferings. The cross on which he suffered is commonly held to have been the decussate cross, now known as St. Andrew’s, though the evidence for this view seems to be no older than the fourteenth century. His martyrdom took place during the reign of Nero, on 30 November, A.D. 60); and both the Latin and Greek Churches keep 30 November as his feast.

St. Andrew’s relics were translated from Patrae to Constantinople, and deposited in the church of the Apostles there, about A.D. 357. When Constantinople was taken by the French, in the beginning of the thirteenth century, Cardinal Peter of Capua brought the relics to Italy and placed them in the cathedral of Amalfi, where most of them still remain. St. Andrew is honoured as their chief patron by Russia and Scotland.

One who goes out of the Divine Will, goes out of the Light.

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

crucified-jesus

 11/29/18 – Vol. 12

One who goes out of the Divine Will, goes out of the Light.

Finding myself in my usual state, I was praying my always lovable Jesus, according to what He had promised me another time – that when the soul always does His Will, sometimes He consents to do the will of the soul. Therefore, I said to Him: ‘Today You really have to do my will.’

Jesus, in coming, told me: “My daughter (Luisa), don’t you know that as the soul goes out of My Divine Will, it is like a day without sun for her, without heat, without the Life of the Divine Attitude within her?” And I: ‘My Love, may Heaven keep me from doing this. I would rather die than go out of Your Will. Therefore, place Your Will in me, and then say to me, “It is My Divine Will that today I do your will”.’ And Jesus: “Ah, cattivella! [bad little one!] All right, I (Jesus) will make you (Luisa) content. I will keep you with Me as long as I want, and then I Myself will leave you free.” Oh! how happy I was that, without doing my will, Jesus, identifying His Will with mine, would do my will while doing His Will.

Afterwards, my lovable Jesus spent some time with me. It seemed that He was dipping the point of His Finger in His Most Precious Blood, and then traced it over my forehead, my eyes, my mouth, my heart. Then He kissed me. In seeing Him so affectionate and sweet, I tried to suckle from His Mouth the bitternesses which His Heart contained, as I used to do before. But Jesus immediately withdrew a little, and showed me a bundle which He had in His Hand, full of other chastisements; and He told me: “Look at how many other chastisements must be poured upon the earth; this is why I (Jesus) do not pour into you (Luisa). The enemies have prepared all their internal plans to make revolutions; now there is nothing left but to prepare their external plans. Ah, My daughter (Luisa), how My Heart grieves! I (Jesus) have no one with whom to pour out My Sorrow. I (Jesus) want to pour it out with you (Luisa). You will have to be patient in hearing Me speak very often about sad things. I know that you suffer, but it is Love that pushes Me to do this. Love wants to make its pains known to Its beloved (Luisa). I almost could not do without coming to pour Myself out with you (Luisa).”

I felt bad in seeing Jesus so embittered. I could feel His Pains in my heart; and Jesus, to cheer me, gave me a few sips of the sweetest milk to drink. Then He added: “Now I withdraw and I leave you free.”

The Good of Operating Together with Jesus.

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

 

LUISA PRAYING

11/28/06 – Vol. 7

The good of operating together with Jesus.

Continuing in my poor state, I just barely saw blessed Jesus, who seemed to transform all of Himself into me, in such a way that if I breathed, I could feel His breathing in mine; if I moved one arm, I could feel Him move His Arm within mine, and so with all the rest. While He was doing this, He told me: “My beloved daughter(Luisa), see in what a close union I AM with you; this is how I (Jesus) want you (Luisa) to be – completely united and clasped to Me. And do not think that you must do this only when you suffer or pray, but rather, always – always. If you move, if you breathe, if you work, if you eat, if you sleep – everything, everything, as if you were doing it in My Humanity, and as if your working came from Me, in such a way that you (Luisa) should be nothing but the cortex, and once the cortex of your work is broken, one should find the Fruit of the Divine Work. And this you (Luisa) must do for the Good of the whole of humanity, in such a way that My Humanity must be present, as though alive in the midst of people. In fact, as you (Luisa) do everything, even the most indifferent actions, with this intention of receiving Life from Me, your action acquires the Merit of My Humanity, because since I (Jesus) was Man and God, in My breathing I contained the breathing of all; the movements, the actions, the thoughts… I (Jesus) contained everything within Myself; therefore I Sanctified them, I Divinized them, I Repaired them. So, by doing everything in the act of receiving all of your working from Me, you too will come to embrace and contain all creatures within you (Luisa) , and your working will diffuse for the Good of all. Therefore, even if the others will give Me nothing, I (Jesus) will take everything from you (Luisa).”

It seems I am speaking a lot of nonsense. These are intimate things, and I am unable to say them well; I would like to write them as I have them in my mind, but I cannot. It seems that I take one drop of Light, and one hundred more escape me. It would have been better had I kept silent, but, after all, may everything be for the Glory of God.

The Sanctity of Living in the Divine Will is Exempt from Personal Interest and Waste of Time

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

 L_Luisa_Reading-a2

11/27/17 – Vol. 12

The Sanctity of Living in the Divine Will is exempt from personal interest and waste of time.

I continue in order to obey. It seems that my always lovable Jesus wants to speak about the Living in His Most Holy Will. It seems that when He speaks about His Most Holy Will, He forgets everything and makes one forget about everything. The soul finds nothing other than the necessity – no other good than to live in His Volition. So, after I wrote about His Will on November 20, my sweet Jesus, being disappointed with me, told me: “My daughter (Luisa), you did not say everything. I want you to neglect to write nothing when I speak to you about My Divine Will – not even the most tiny things, because all of them will serve for the Good of Posterity. In all sanctities there have always been Saints who first started each kind of sanctity. So, there was the Saint who started the sanctity of the penitent; another who started the sanctity of obedience; another of humility, and so with all the other sanctities. Now I (Jesus) want you (Luisa) to be the beginning of the Sanctity of Living in My Divine Will.

My daughter (Luisa), all other sanctities are not exempt from waste of time and from personal interest – as for example, a soul who lives attentive to obedience in everything. There is much waste of time; her saying and re-saying continuously, distracts her from Me, and she mistakes the virtue for Me. If she does not have the opportunity to take all the orders, she lives restless. Another one suffers from temptations – oh, how much waste of time! She never tires of telling of all her trials, and she mistakes the virtue for Me. And many times these sanctities end up in ruin. But the Sanctity of Living in My Divine Will is exempt from personal interest and waste of time; there is no danger that they might mistake the virtue for Me, because I Myself am the Living in My Divine Will.

This was the Sanctity of My Humanity on earth, and therefore It did everything for everyone, without a shadow of personal interest. Self-interest takes away the Mark of Divine Sanctity. Therefore, it can never be a Sun; at the most, as beautiful as it may be, it can be a star. This is why I (Jesus) want the Sanctity of Living in My Divine Will – in these times, so sad, this generation needs these Suns, which may warm it, illuminate it and fecundate it. The disinterest of these terrestrial angels, all for the good of others, without a shadow of their own self, will open in hearts the way to receive My Grace.

And then, churches are few and many will be destroyed. Many times I do not find Priests to consecrate Me; other times they allow unworthy souls to receive Me, and worthy souls not to receive Me; other souls are unable to receive Me, therefore My Love finds Itself hindered. This is why I want to make the Sanctity of Living in My Divine Will. In It, I (Jesus) will no longer need Priests to be consecrated, nor churches, tabernacles or hosts. These souls will be everything altogether: Priests, churches, tabernacles and hosts. My Love will be more free. Anytime I want to consecrate Myself, I will be able to do it – in every moment, during the day, at night, in any place where they might be. Oh, how My Love will have Its complete outpouring!

Ah! My daughter (Luisa), the present generation deserved to be destroyed completely; and if I will allow a little something to be left of it, it is to form these Suns of the Sanctity of Living in My Divine Will, who, through My example, will repay Me for all that other creatures, past, present and future, owed Me. Then will the earth give Me true Glory, and My “FIAT VOLUNTAS TUA, on earth as it is in Heaven” will have Its Completion and Fulfillment.”

Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Ordered by Pope Pius XI to be recited on the Feast of Christ the King.Christ the King

    Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thine altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but, to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy sacred Heart. Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to Thy Father’s house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that there may be but one flock and one Shepherd. Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to draw them into the light and Kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of the race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life. Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: “Praise be to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to it be glory and honor for ever.” Amen.

Centralization of Purpose of Creation, Redemption, Glorification – Divine Will as Life of Creature Surpasses the Miracle of the Eucharist

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

 11/26/21 – Vol. 13

The centralization of the Purpose of Creation, of Redemption and of Glorification. The Divine Will as Life of the creature surpasses the Miracle of the Eucharist.

I was thinking about what is written on the 19th of the current month, and I said to myself: ‘How is it possible that, after my Mama, I be the second support?’ My sweet Jesus, drawing me to Himself, into an immense light, told me: “My daughter (Luisa), why do you doubt? What is the reason?”

And I: ‘My great misery.’

And He: “This you must banish. Besides, if I (Jesus) did not choose you (Luisa), I certainly should have chosen another one from the human family. In fact, the human family rebelled against My Divine Will, and by rebelling, it took away from Me the Purpose of the Glory and of the Honor which Creation was supposed to give Me. Therefore, another from the same human family, by having a continuous connection with My Divine Will, by Living more with My Divine Will than with her own, embracing everything within My Volition, was to rise over everything so as to lay at the feet of My Throne the Glory, the Honor and the Love which all the others have not given Me.

Creation of AdamThe only Purpose of Creation was that all would fulfill My Divine Will – not that man would do great things; rather, I (Jesus) look at those as trifles and I despise them if they are not Fruits of My Divine Will. This is why many works turn to ruin at their peak: because the Life of My Divine Will was not in them. So, having broken his will from Mine, man destroyed My best – the Purpose for which I had created him. He ruined himself completely, and denied Me all the Rights which he owed Me as Creator. But My Works carry the Mark of Eternity, and My infinite Wisdom and My Eternal Love could not leave the Work of Creation without Its Effects and the Rights which were due to Me.

This is the reason for Redemption. With so many pains, I (Jesus) wanted to expiate all the sins of man van-dyck-crucifixion-1622– by never doing My own will, but always that of the Divinity, even in the most tiny things, such as breathing, looking, speaking, etc. My Humanity did not move, nor did It have life, if It was not animated by the Will of My Father. I (Jesus) would have contented Myself with dying a thousand times rather than take a breath without His Will. Through this, I joined again the human will with the Divine, and through My Person alone, being true Man and true God, I (Jesus) returned to My Father all the Glory and the Rights which befitted Him.

But My Divine Will and My Divine Love do not want to be alone in My Works – they want to make other images similar to Me. After My Humanity restored the Purpose of Creation, I (Jesus) saw that, because of man’s ingratitude, the Purpose of Redemption was in danger, and almost ruined for many. Therefore, so that Redemption might bring Me complete Glory and give Me all the Rights which were due to Me, I (Jesus) took another creature from the human family – My Mama (Mary), faithful copy of My Life, in whom My Divine Will was preserved as whole, and I (Jesus) centralized in Her (Celestial Mama, Mary) all the Fruits of Redemption. So I (Jesus) rescued the Purpose of Creation and Redemption; and if no one had taken advantage of Redemption, My Mama (Mary) would give Me all that the creatures would not have given Me.

LUISA14Now I (Jesus) come to you (Luisa). I was true Man and true God, My dear Mama (Mary) was innocent and Holy, and Our Love pushed us even further: We wanted another creature who, being conceived like all the other children of men, would take the third place at My Side. I (Jesus) was not satisfied with the fact that only Myself and My Mama (Mary) remained unbroken with the Divine Will. We wanted other children who, in the name of all, Living in full accord with Our Will, would give Us Divine Glory and Love for all. Therefore I (Jesus) called you (Luisa) from Eternity, when nothing yet existed down here; and just as I (Jesus) longed for My dear Mama (Mary), delighting in Her, caressing Her, and pouring upon Her, in torrents, all the Goods of the Divinity, so I (Jesus) longed for you (Luisa), I caressed you, and the torrents which were poured on My Mama (Mary) inundated you (Luisa) – for as much as you were capable of containing. They (torrents of Goods) prepared you (Luisa), anticipated you; and embellishing you, they gave you the Grace that My Divine Will be whole in you (Luisa), and that My Divine Will, not yours, would animate even your tiniest acts. My Life, My Divine Will and all My Love flew in each act of yours. What contentment! How many joys did I not feel! This is why I (Jesus) call you (Luisa) second support after My Mama (Mary). Not upon you (Luisa) did I (Jesus) lean – because you were nothing, and lean I could not – but upon My Divine Will, which you (Luisa) were to contain. My Divine Will is Life, and whoever possesses It possesses Life, and is able to sustain the Author (God) of Life Itself.

Therefore, just as I centralized in Me the Purpose of Creation, I (Jesus)  centralized in My Mama (Mary) the Fruits of Redemption, and I (Jesus) centralized in you (Luisa) the Purpose of the Glory as if My Divine Will were whole in everyone. And from you (Luisa) will come the squad of the other creatures. The generations will not pass away if I (Jesus) do not obtain this intent.”

Stupefied, I said: ‘My Love, is it possible that Your Will is whole in me, and that in all my life there has been no break between Your Will and mine? It seems to me that You are making fun of me.’ And Jesus, with a tone even sweeter: “No, I AM not making fun of you. It is really true that there has been no break; an injury at the most – sometimes. And My Love, like strong cement, has repaired these injuries, and has rendered the integrity stronger. I (Jesus) have guarded each one of your acts, making My Divine Will flow immediately, as if to Its Place of Honor. I knew that many Graces were needed, since I was to operate the greatest miracle that exist in the world – that is, the continuous Living in My Divine Will: the soul must absorb the whole of a God into her act, to give Him back again as whole as she absorbed Him; and then absorb Him once again.

Therefore, this surpasses even the miracle of the Eucharist. Its accidents have no reason, nor a will, nor desires which may oppose My Sacramental Life. So, the Host contributes nothing – all the Work is Mine; if I (Jesus) want it, I do it. On the other hand, in order to make the Miracle of the Living in My Divine Will happen, I (Jesus) have to bend a reason, a human will, a desire, a love which is purely free. How much does this not take? Therefore, there are many souls who receive Communion and take part in the miracle of the Eucharist, because they sacrifice less; but having to sacrifice more in order to let the Miracle that My Divine Will may have Life in them occur – very few are those who dispose themselves.”

Both in Jesus and in souls, the First Crafting is done by Love.

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

 220px-Christ_in_Gethsemane

11/25/09 – Vol. 9

Both in Jesus and in souls, the First Crafting is done by Love.

Finding myself in my usual state, I was thinking about the Agony of Jesus in the Garden; and blessed Jesus, making Himself seen for just a little, told me: “My daughter (Luisa), men did nothing but work the skin of My Humanity, while the Eternal Love worked all of My interior. So, in My Agony, the Eternal Love, the Immense Love, the Incalculable Love, the Hidden Love – not men – opened large wounds in Me, pierced Me with flaming nails, crowned Me with burning thorns, made Me drink boiling gall. And My Humanity, unable to contain so many different martyrdoms at the same time, poured out large streams of Blood; It writhed, and reached the point of saying: ‘Father, if it is possible, let this chalice pass from Me; yet, not My will, but Yours be done’ – which It did not do in the rest of the Passion. Everything I (Jesus) suffered during the course of the Passion, I suffered all together in the Agony – but in a more intense, more painful, more intimate way, because Love penetrated deep into the marrow of My Bones and into the most intimate fibers of My Heart, which creatures could never reach. But Love reaches everything; there is nothing that can resist It. So, My first executioner was Love. This is why in the course of My Passion there was not even a reproachful glance in Me toward those who acted as My executioners – because I had a more cruel, more active Executioner in Me: Love. And where the external executioners could not reach, or a little part of Me was spared, Love would continue Its work and spare Me nothing.

This happens in all souls: the first work is done by Love, and once Love has worked her and filled her with Itself, what appears on the outside is nothing but the outpouring of the crafting that Love has performed inside.”

No Beauty that Equals Suffering for God Alone – Distractions at Communion

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

 Sacred-Heart-of-Jesus

11/23/03 – Vol. 6

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.”

 

11/23/07 – Vol. 8

If the soul suffers distractions at Communion, it is a sign that she has not given herself completely to God.

pope-francis-massHaving 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.”
