St. Paul wrote in his canticle of love (1 Cor. 13): “…and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” St. Paul was perhaps the most powerfully dynamic of all priests.

Our Lord: “…And then, I have not thrown you (Luisa) to the ground; rather, I keep you more than ever clasped in My Arms. Even more, I tell you (Luisa) that if to Paul I gave My efficacious Grace at the beginning of his conversion, to you I give it almost continually – and this is the sign of it: that you continue in your interior everything that you used to do when I was with you almost continually – doing what now you seem to do by yourself. Your feeling all immersed in Me and bound to Me, always thinking of Me even though you do not see Me – this is not your own thing, nor an ordinary Grace, but Special and Efficacious Grace. And if I give you much, it is a sign that I Love you much, and I want to be loved much by you.”
