Don't forget this invisible, ever-present companion, who is always ready to console us
Therefore, it is best to receive the locutions with great caution and humble and constant indifference. Act in this way and everything will increase your merit before the Lord. Don’t worry about your soul; Jesus loves you very much. Try to correspond to this love by progressing more and more in holiness before God and men.
Pray out loud as well; the time has not yet come to abandon these prayers. Support the difficulties you experience when doing this with patience and humility. Also be ready to suffer distractions and dryness, and you must not, under any circumstances, abandon prayer and meditation. It is the Lord who wants to treat you this way for your spiritual advantage.
Forgive me if I end here. Only God knows how difficult it has been for me to write this letter. I am very sick. Pray much that the Lord may desire to free me from this body soon.
I bless you, together with the excellent Francesca. May you live and die in the arms of Jesus.
