She has great confidence that God will 313 1, 9 | understanding shall be opened. Great is the mercy which He grants 314 1, 10 | when she was going through great trials, shortly after God 315 2, 1 | Marriage, although this great Favour cannot be fulfilled 316 2, 1 | ourselves from God this great blessing would be lost. 317 2, 1 | just received Communion, in great splendour and beauty and 318 2, 2 | because this vision came with great force; for another, because 319 2, 3 | of God to the soul is so great a secret and so sublime 320 2, 6 | which I refer. For just as a great stream of water could never 321 2, 6 | there is a sun whence this great light proceeds, which is 322 2, 8 | it is able to do and how great is the extent of its obligations, 323 2, 8 | described elsewhere the great distress which this brings, 324 3, 3 | is little to be said.
