You must think 21 1, 3 | very carefully; perhaps God will be pleased to use it 22 1, 3 | our exile for so great a God to commune with such malodorous 23 1, 3 | that it is possible for God to grant such favours during 24 1, 3 | could we help rejoicing that God should grant these favours 25 1, 4 | failing to edify those to whom God grants these favours, and 26 1, 4 | all know and believe that God grants still greater proofs 27 1, 4 | learn it by experience.

Here, glory be to God, we keep almost continuous 56 1, 4 | you have heard, in which God calls us.

It is a curious thing: 62 1, 8 | have only just been born: God grant that they have even 63 1, 9 | resist outward trials if God will only grant you inward 64 1, 9 | conformity with the will of God. As I shall say later, you 65 1, 10 | for even out of your fall God will bring good, just as 66 1, 10 | themselves, but in the mercy of God, and they will see how His 67 1, 11 | more every day -- please God that it may come to realize 68 1, 12 | nature and what we owe to God, and continually imploring 69 1, 1 | those who by the mercy of God have overcome in these combats, 70 1, 2 | spot. Oh, my Lord and my God! How canst Thou wish us 71 1, 2 | If that is indeed so, my God, let us die with Thee, as 72 1, 2 | pleasure consists in pleasing God? Remember that all this, 73 1, 2 | we cannot be certain that God will give us His hand and 74 1, 3 | shall not complain that God ceased giving me all the 75 1, 3 | for me to do but approach God and trust in the merits 76 1, 4 | are always talking about God, continually engaging in 77 1, 5 | account the judgments of God. ~Personally, I think that 78 1, 5 | that you are vassals of God; do not try to get so much 79 1, 5 | deserved. For we have offended God, and, however faithfully 80 1, 6 | consider what they do for God, and we shall then see how 81 1, 6 | works. Yet do not suppose God has any need of our works; 82 1, 7 | we do for so generous a God, Who died for us and created 83 1, 8 | is true humility, even if God never grants the soul favours, 84 2, 2 | that they are suffering for God's sake, and thus never really 85 2, 2 | quickly. For often it is God's will that His elect should 86 2, 2 | great mercy on the part of God, and even though they are 87 2, 4 | to the poor. But I think God would rather I were resigned 88 2, 6 | some of their reputation. God often grants them grace 89 2, 6 | served Him, for this our God is good indeed. And yet 90 2, 7 | surrender of our wills to God and order our lives as His 91 2, 7 | if we are truly humble, God, the Physician,75 will come 92 2, 8 | habit of always serving God at a snail's pace! As long 93 2, 8 | tell you about that! Please God I have got farther than 94 2, 11 | great solace to souls whom God has brought so far, while 95 2, 12 | was in any way pleasing to God), none the less, when I 96 2, 12 | offer fervent praises to God. Now if I, who am so worthless 97 2, 12 | because, if they come from God, they come laden with love 98 2, 14 | with these desires that God gives us to help others, 99 1, 3 | to the consolations which God gives, and do much more 100 1, 4 | nature, though, of course, God plays a part in the process ( 101 1, 5 | our own nature and end in God, whereas spiritual consolations 102 1, 5 | consolations have their source in God, but we experience them 103 1, 6 | realizes what it is doing for God's sake; but it sheds a few 104 1, 7 | they eventually lead one to God. And this is an experience 105 1, 7 | even so, they are a gift of God. Most of the souls which 106 1, 7 | various acts, and in praising God and rejoicing in His goodness 107 1, 8 | determination to try to please God in everything, and to endeavour, 108 1, 9 | rule, fly so fast that only God can restrain them; which 109 1, 9 | I thought, occupied with God and recollected in Him, 110 1, 10 | spending in the presence of God. Yet the soul may perhaps 111 1, 11 | with great velocity. Please God I may remember to explain 112 1, 12 | everything for the love of God. Similarly we are obliged 113 1, 13 | Mansion, as, if it please God, we shall explain. ~ 114 2, 1 | GOD help me in this task which 115 2, 1 | leads to a desire to please God and to have fruition of 116 2, 2 | I call consolations from God, and elsewhere have termed 117 2, 2 | know who by the mercy of God have experienced it. To 118 2, 2 | created by so great and wise a God there must be many secrets 119 2, 2 | little thing created by God there is more than we realize, 120 2, 4 | from its source, which is God, and, when it is His Majesty' 121 2, 4 | said it has its source in God and ends in ourselves -- 122 2, 5 | must be! O my Lord and my God! How wondrous is Thy greatness! 123 2, 7 | about it: by the mercy of God I would rather die a thousand 124 2, 8 | some way with the will of God; but it is by the effects 125 2, 9 | thing is that we should love God without any motive of self-interest. 126 2, 9 | it is given only to whom God wills to give it and often 127 3, 3 | here. When we are seeking God within ourselves (where 128 3, 3 | it is a great help if God grants us this favour. Do 129 3, 3 | a truth -- namely, that God is within us. But it is 130 3, 3 | have begun to think about God at all. I cannot say where 131 3, 3 | it happens only when God is pleased to grant us this 132 3, 4 | within himself should give God great praise, for he will 133 3, 6 | leave itself in the hands of God, and do what He wills it 134 3, 6 | possibly can to the will of God. The third reason is that 135 3, 6 | important and pleasing thing in God's eyes is our remembering 136 3, 6 | desiring the greater glory of God or of rejoicing in the glory 137 3, 6 | would only spoil everything. God gave us our faculties to 138 3, 6 | perform their office until God gives them a better one. ~ 139 3, 7 | to remember that it is in God's presence and Who this 140 3, 7 | s presence and Who this God is. If feeling this should 141 3, 8 | below the consolations of God already mentioned, and is 142 3, 8 | fixed so firmly upon its God that this disturbed condition 143 3, 9 | this prayer is granted by God Our Lord. It is clear that 144 3, 9 | this kind of prayer, and God works many more wonders 145 3, 9 | relating to the service of God than it was before and give 146 3, 9 | than ever not to offend God (of Whom, however, it has 147 3, 9 | health now believes that in God he can do everything, and 148 3, 9 | endures these trials for God's sake, His Majesty will 149 3, 9 | desire to do something for God. The better he gets to know 150 3, 9 | to know the greatness of God, the better he comes to 151 3, 9 | tasted the consolations of God, he sees that earthly things 152 3, 9 | commits offenses against God -- when that happens, everything 153 3, 9 | place because once or twice God has granted a soul this 154 3, 10 | from occasions of offending God. For as yet the soul is 155 3, 10 | the lot of anyone to whom God has granted this favour 156 3, 10 | advantage to the Church of God. He may see nothing else 157 3, 10 | free from these perils. May God free you from pride and 158 3, 12 | conscious of anything concerning God. She was cured by being 159 3, 13 | something that really comes from God, there may be languor, both 160 3, 13 | when it finds itself near God, is moved with great joy. 161 3, 13 | they can be certain that God is not calling them to anything 162 1 | the soul is united with God. Describes how we may know 163 1, 2 | more than reach the door, God is showing them great mercy 164 1, 3 | need bodily strength if God our Lord does not give it 165 1, 3 | content. Blessed be so great a God! But observe, daughters, 166 1, 3 | it may live more fully in God. This is a delectable death, 167 1, 3 | order to come closer to God, the soul appears to have 168 1, 3 | dead. Oh, the secrets of God! I should never weary of 169 1, 3(112) | order to come closer to God, that I do not know, etc." ~ 170 1, 4 | the favour was a gift of God, or if the devil was transfigured 171 1, 4 | this is indeed union with God,113 the devil cannot enter 172 1, 4 | understand a thing so secret that God will not even entrust our 173 1, 4(115) | seen by the devil unless God blinds him in that respect." 174 1, 4 | which come to the soul with God working in it and neither 175 1, 5 | this is indeed union with God" and suggesting that there 176 1, 5 | not like the transports of God, nor is there the same delight 177 1, 6 | some favour has come from God; His Majesty has put it 178 1, 6 | instinct118 to prompt them. As God uses them to give light 179 1, 6 | but are true servants of God, they will never be surprised 180 1, 7 | who does not believe that God can do much more than this, 181 1, 7 | be true of you, but trust God more and more, and do not 182 1, 8 | here is this soul which God has made, as it were, completely 183 1, 8 | shorter than it really is. God implants Himself in the 184 1, 8 | cannot120 possibly doubt that God has been in it and it has 185 1, 8 | in it and it has been in God; so firmly does this truth 186 1, 8 | that, although for years God may never grant it that 187 1, 9 | can be put there only by God. I know of a person who 188 1, 9 | who had not learned that God was in all things by presence 189 1, 9 | presence and power and essence; God granted her a favour of 190 1, 9 | whom she asked in what way God was in us (until God granted 191 1, 9 | way God was in us (until God granted him an understanding 192 1, 9 | know, it is the work of God. But I know I am speaking 193 1, 9 | union of the whole soul with God but only union of one of 194 1, 9 | other kinds of favour which God grants the soul. In all 195 1, 9 | all-powerful,124 and as it is God Who does it and we, however 196 2, 1 | but when the soul to which God grants these favours prepares 197 2, 2 | no one could invent but God -- and how it comes from 198 2, 3 | wonders and the wisdom of our God. What, then, would it be 199 2, 4 | utilize the general help which God gives to us all, and to 200 2, 5 | is hid in Christ, or in God (for that is the same thing), 201 2, 6 | see what we can do, with God's favour. May His Majesty 202 2, 6 | that we can subtract from God, or add to Him. But of course 203 2, 6 | subtract from, nor add to, God, but we can subtract from, 204 2, 6 | we can in that respect, God will take this tiny achievement 205 2, 7 | to do. Then we shall see God and shall ourselves be as 206 2, 7 | when I speak of seeing God, I am referring to the way 207 2, 8 | butterfly. Oh, greatness of God, that a soul should come 208 2, 8 | hidden in the greatness of God, and closely united with 209 2, 8 | solitude, and for all to know God. And hence, when it sees 210 2, 8 | And hence, when it sees God being offended, it becomes 211 2, 8 | as I have said, if after God comes to a soul here on 212 2, 9 | Here is something to praise God for -- namely, that it knows 213 2, 9 | dissatisfied, especially when God has again and again given 214 2, 9 | All that it can do for God seems to it slight by comparison 215 2, 9 | cause it to sin against God. Everything wearies it, 216 2, 10 | could say: anyone to whom God has granted this favour 217 2, 10 | our power to do that until God is pleased once again to 218 2, 11 | its life in this exile is God's will. And even this is 219 2, 11 | resigned to the will of God, as we shall see later. 220 2, 11 | to act in conformity with God's will, but it does so with 221 2, 11 | caused by seeing how often God is offended, and how little 222 2, 11 | condemned, though so great is God's mercy that, however evil 223 2, 12 | Oh, the greatness of God! Only a few years since -- 224 2, 12 | keenly as the soul does now. God help me! If I were able 225 2, 12 | great a sin it is to offend God, and in reflecting that 226 2, 13 | to the same matter) that God put her in the cellar of 227 2, 13 | desires anything save that God shall do with it what He 228 2, 13 | wills. Never, I think, will God grant this favour save to 229 2, 13 | consenting. Oh, goodness of God, that all this should be 230 2, 14 | sisters, you see what our God does to the soul in this 231 2, 15 | suffering in doing the will of God! But the constant sight 232 3 | which, with the help of God, the soul can attain, and 233 3, 1 | and see something of what God gives her in this state. 234 3, 1 | own part I believe it is God's will that so great a favour 235 3, 1 | describing the favours given by God to those who love and serve 236 3, 2 | should profit by the favours God had shown her, she would 237 3, 2 | swerving from the law of God; I am referring to those 238 3, 3 | whatever is the will of God. Oh, how many of us there 239 3, 3 | our wills to the will of God. ~ 240 3, 4 | itself in peril of losing God, or sees that He is offended -- 241 3, 4 | needed by the Church of God. For this soul sees clearly 242 3, 5 | prevent union with the will of God, nor do they cause a restless, 243 3, 6 | true union with the will of God. This is the union which 244 3, 7 | complete union with the will of God. ~ 245 3, 8 | conformity with the will of God that I shall not grieve 246 3, 8 | in the way we ought for a God Who is so great! May His 247 3, 9 | be sure if we are loving God, although we may have good 248 3, 9 | the love you will have for God; for so dearly does His 249 3, 10 | its roots in the love of God. Since this is so important, 250 3, 10 | vainglory; just as those which God gives are free both from 251 3, 11 | prayer, think that, for God's sake, they would be glad 252 3, 11 | they have not done ---- ! God save us from having to listen 253 4, 1 | come to the last Mansion. God grant I may remember it 254 4, 2 | will often have heard that God betrothes Himself to souls 255 4, 5 | a large number of people God can draw to Himself through 256 4, 5 | great cause for praising God. Think of a maiden like 257 4, 5 | received such favours from God! What did they do but endeavour 258 4, 6 | at one with the will of God, as has been said, how can 259 4, 6 | justified in asking this -- God has been abundantly merciful 260 4, 6 | continual intercourse with God Himself, and could listen 261 4, 7 | invariably followed the will of God, it is clear that it would 262 4, 7 | withdraw it from the love of God and to persuade it to indulge 263 4, 8 | we must continually ask God in our prayers to keep us 264 4, 8 | suppose, then, that when God brings a soul to such a 265 4, 9 | set out to be the bride of God Himself, and has already 266 4, 10 | could work for so great a God and Lord and Spouse. May 267 1, 2 | which it now holds. Oh, my God, how great are these trials, 268 1, 2 | deep into suffering for God's sake. The reason for this 269 1, 3 | what happens to those whom God grants such favours, at 270 1, 4 | in it this is a gift of God, and not in the least due 271 1, 4 | it breaks into praises of God, but as though He were being 272 1, 4 | observing the favours which God is granting it, the soul 273 1, 4 | the honour and glory of God more than its own honour 274 1, 4 | that it can be the cause of God's being even once praised -- 275 1, 5 | persecutors are not offending God, but that His Majesty is 276 1, 6 | illnesses do. For, after all, God gives us no more than we 277 1, 8 | thinks that people to whom God grants these favours must 278 1, 8 | that because of their sins God will permit them to be deceived -- 279 1, 8 | spirit than a spirit of God, yet, as it is a state which 280 1, 8 | as if it has never known God and never will know Him, 281 1, 9 | think herself cast off by God. For there are many things 282 1, 11 | to wait upon the mercy of God, Who suddenly, at the most 283 1, 12 | torment it does not offend God, and would not do so for 284 1, 12 | smallest spark of any love for God, nor has it ever done so. 285 1, 13 | them any more. This great God desires us to know that 286 1, 14 | of charity and to hope in God's mercy, which never fails 287 2, 2 | is not even thinking of God, he is awakened by His Majesty, 288 2, 2 | that it has been called by God, so much so that sometimes, 289 2, 3 | to stir. Oh, my powerful God, how great are Thy secrets, 290 2, 4 | it of the presence of its God. Now, if this is so, you 291 2, 4 | just been wondering if my God could be described as the 292 2, 5 | let him endeavour to serve God and to grow better all his 293 2, 6 | determination to suffer for God's sake and to desire to 294 2, 8 | soul's desires to enjoy God in any way painful. This 295 3 | He is pleased to do so, God speaks to the soul. Gives 296 3, 1 | is another way in which God awakens the soul, and which, 297 3, 1(159) | or intellectual locutions God imprints what He is about 298 3, 2 | because the service of God does not consist in things 299 3, 3 | first, for, if they are of God, dispensing with them will 300 3, 4 | locutions, these may come from God, in any of the ways I have 301 3, 4 | your locutions come from God, you will for that reason 302 3, 5 | do with their coming from God. The surest signs that one 303 3, 6 | ready to sing praises to God. Oh, Lord, if there is such 304 3, 7 | its belief that, though God may use other means incomprehensible 305 3, 7 | time that they came from God have passed away. So these 306 3, 7 | the honour and service of God but presenting considerable 307 3, 7 | harmful not to believe that God is powerful and can do works 308 3, 9 | come from the Spirit of God, it is right that we should 309 3, 10 | that these things are of God, and the effects of these 310 3, 10 | of locutions coming from God will not, I think, be deceived 311 3, 11 | confident that they are of God, although not to such an 312 3, 11 | insight and a servant of God, even though one may understand 313 3, 11 | evident that they are of God. For this is His Majesty' 314 3, 18 | that the spirit is not of God; for it is quite certain 315 3, 18 | nothing but the honour of God rather than being mindful 316 3, 18 | the least from the will of God and its certainty that it 317 3, 19 | the locutions come from God there is no such remedy, 318 4 | Treats of occasions when God suspends the soul in prayer 319 4, 2 | am certain that, unless God granted us strength,163 320 4, 3 | remembers or hears spoken by God. His Majesty is moved with 321 4, 3 | When it is thus cleansed, God unites it with Himself, 322 4, 4 | fully awake to the things of God or had such light or such 323 4, 6 | concerning the greatness of God remains so firmly in the 324 4, 6 | bound to believe Him to be God, the soul would adore Him 325 4, 7 | bush, but only as much as God willed him to;167 yet, if 326 4, 7 | willed him to;167 yet, if God had not revealed secret 327 4, 7 | know and believe Him to be God, he would not have taken 328 4, 7 | understanding the hidden things of God; rather, believing, as we 329 4, 8 | The soul becomes one with God. It is brought into this 330 4, 8 | it is clear that, since God dwells in them, He must 331 4, 8 | of the supernatural than God has been pleased to reveal 332 4, 9 | that, if the soul to whom God has given these secrets 333 4, 9 | enraptured you can be sure that God is taking her entire soul 334 4, 9 | everything that is in this great God is very great. He will not 335 4, 10 | doing, or can ever do, for a God Who is pleased to communicate 336 4, 11 | great harm. For the love of God, then, sisters, let us profit 337 4, 12 | to these great things of God (come to write about them, 338 4, 15 | desires it has to be used for God in any and every way in 339 4, 15 | so as to use them all for God, and it would like everything 340 5 | gives an example of how God exalts the soul through 341 5 | something of this favour which God grants in a way so delectable. 342 5, 1 | necessary for anyone in whom God is to work these favours, 343 5, 1 | certainty that it is caused by God. ~ 344 5, 2 | certain person who said that God's will seems to be to show 345 5, 3 | movement. But now this great God, Who controls the sources 346 5, 5 | itself upon the mercy of God; and, since it has nothing 347 5, 6 | never had anything to offer God or to give up for His sake. 348 5, 10 | knowledge of the greatness of God: the more we see of this, 349 5, 10 | the service of so great a God. ~ 350 6, 1 | frequently and tearfully begs God to take it out of this exile. 351 6, 2 | especially when alone with God, on the other hand she is 352 6, 2 | from the commandments of God that it leads to Heaven) 353 6, 3 | God gives these souls the keenest 354 6, 3 | help one soul to praise God more; a woman in this state 355 6, 3 | abroad Who is this great God of Hosts. ~ 356 6, 4 | will! Have pity on her, my God; and dispose things so that 357 6, 5 | knowledge of the mercy of God and of His greatness, which 358 6, 6 | resign itself to the will of God, and you can echo the words 359 6, 7 | reasons which have to do with God but this will not be so 360 6, 7 | so whenever they think of God or hear Him spoken of) that 361 6, 7 | rather than their love of God, which has excited their 362 6, 9 | Let the tears come when God is pleased to send them: 363 6, 10 | like, not to rejoice in God in solitude, but to tell 364 6, 10 | calls upon all to praise God cannot possibly have come 365 6, 11 | namely, the praises of their God. I knew one of these, called 366 6, 11 | madness, sisters! If only God would give it to us all! 367 6, 11 | there are so few to proclaim God's praise that it is not 368 6, 12 | than in the praises of God, which we have so many reasons 369 6, 13 | namely, the praises of God. Let us join with this soul, 370 7 | sins by the souls to Whom God grants the favours aforementioned. 371 7, 1 | enjoyment of such favours by God, they will know what I am 372 7, 1 | more they receive from our God, the greater grows their 373 7, 2 | knowledge of the greatness of God. It is aghast at having 374 7, 3 | she might die so as to see God, but was desiring death 375 7, 3 | there was no one with whom God had borne for so long and 376 7, 4 | thought that they may lose God, but this happens seldom. 377 7, 4 | Their sole fear is that God may let them out of His 378 7, 4 | there they will not be with God. ~ 379 7, 5 | However favoured by God a soul may be, I should 380 7, 5 | greatness and majesty of God, they would find them terribly 381 7, 7 | accomplished such great deeds for God; the last thing we should 382 7, 8 | of meditation is to seek God, and once He is found, and 383 7, 9 | itself which it is making to God as did our father Elias?193 384 7, 10 | will, and the presence of God is not felt, we must needs 385 7, 10 | we have to take to please God -- namely, that of keeping 386 7, 11 | thinking of the favour which God bestowed upon us by giving 387 7, 12 | referring to which those whom God has raised to supernatural 388 7, 12 | has received so much from God should forget all these 389 7, 13 | so with everyone, since God leads souls by many ways, 390 7, 15 | faith and knew that He was God and Man; and, although she 391 7, 16 | person who was a servant of God about my method of prayer, 392 8 | Treats of the way in which God communicates Himself to 393 8, 2 | I saw a person to whom God had granted this favour, 394 8, 2 | But as to its being from God or no she had great misgivings, 395 8, 3 | be habitually thinking of God wherever she went and to 396 8, 3 | constant desires to please God and such scorn for everything 397 8, 4 | recognized as the gift of God and such feelings could 398 8, 4 | a gift from the hand of God. And although, as I believe, 399 8, 4 | brings a special knowledge of God, and from this constant 400 8, 4 | we know quite well that God is present in all that we 401 8, 6 | understanding the great wonders of God, for we are not capable 402 8, 6 | the greatest services to God Who has so many ways of 403 8, 6 | feels that he is serving God less than anyone else on 404 8, 7 | continual occupation with God and its fixing of the thought 405 8, 7 | he would not do so often. God is so faithful that He will 406 8, 8 | above, and these favours of God are withdrawn from it, His 407 8, 8 | sign that they are not of God. It will be well at first 408 8, 10 | to be better servants of God; but sometimes it is the 409 8, 10 | sometimes it is the weakest whom God leads by this road; and 410 9, 2 | do so. And that is what God does, too. ~ 411 9, 4 | invariably the soul on which God bestows this favour remains 412 9, 7 | remember this favour which God grants to the soul, and 413 9, 7 | this sublime communion with God. ~ 414 9, 10 | that this favour comes from God. However often it may be 415 9, 10 | confessor insinuates this fear, God allows the soul to begin 416 9, 11 | themselves, and a soul to whom God has granted such a favour 417 9, 11 | whether they proceed from God or from the imagination 418 9, 12 | you should or that it is God Who is teaching you. God 419 9, 12 | God Who is teaching you. God is very anxious for us to 420 9, 12 | if these things be not of God, they will do you no harm 421 9, 12 | will suppose that it is God Who is granting you these 422 9, 15 | when you learn or hear that God is granting souls these 423 9, 22 | thing is to will only what God wills, for He knows us better 424 9, 24 | themselves to greater efforts in God's service by thinking of 425 9, 24 | for the greater honour of God, it were necessary that 426 10 | Speaks of other favours which God grants to the soul in a 427 10, 1 | itself in loving and praising God. His Majesty also communicates 428 10, 2 | which it seems to see within God Himself. These are not visions 429 10, 2 | how all things are seen in God, and how within Himself 430 10, 2 | are acting when we offend God, since it is within God 431 10, 2 | God, since it is within God Himself -- because we dwell 432 10, 3 | Let us imagine that God is like a very large and 433 10, 3 | palace, then, as I say, is God Himself. Now can the sinner 434 10, 3 | itself -- that is, within God. Oh, fearful thought, worthy 435 10, 3 | mercy and long-suffering of God in not casting us straight 436 10, 3 | thing in the world that God our Creator should suffer 437 10, 4 | before we imitate this great God in any way? Oh, let us not 438 10, 4 | have offended this great God, He has not ceased loving 439 10, 5 | which cannot be described, God will reveal a truth that 440 10, 6 | any way to grow like our God and Spouse, we shall do 441 10, 6 | concerned -- glory be to God! -- I know that in these 442 10, 6 | truth, in the presence of God and man, in every way possible 443 10, 6 | do we must attribute to God what is His, and to ourselves 444 10, 7 | mind: that it is because God is Sovereign Truth and to 445 10, 7 | in truth. May it please God, sisters, to grant us grace 446 11 | of the desires to enjoy God which He gives the soul 447 11, 1 | about the greatness of her God, while finding herself so 448 11, 1 | her of how much this great God and Lord deserves to be 449 11, 1 | limitations can be set to God's acts, and that He can 450 11, 3 | this soul feels absent from God, and His Majesty now aids 451 11, 4 | about to render itself up to God. It really is quite as bad 452 11, 4 | only a little stronger, God would have fulfilled its 453 11, 5 | resign herself to the will of God, since she has surrendered 454 11, 6 | Ah, God help me! Lord, how Thou 455 11, 6 | it very gladly, and, if God so willed, would suffer 456 11, 7 | contentment and delight which God gives it. They cannot see 457 1 | Treats of great favours which God bestows on the souls that 458 1, 1 | just as the greatness of God is without limit, even so 459 1, 1 | remain to be related about God. Great is the mercy that 460 1, 1 | souls as creatures made in God's image deserve and so we 461 1, 1 | are to be said and which God reveals to every soul that 462 1, 2 | many blessings. O great God! Surely a creature as miserable 463 1, 2 | out upon me, so long as God is praised and understood 464 1, 4 | I mean. For the love of God, I beg you always to remember 465 1, 5 | speaking, but of those who, by God's mercy, have done penance 466 1, 5 | soul there is a mansion for God. Now, when His Majesty is 467 1, 5 | realization of its nearness to God. But when He unites it with 468 1, 6 | everything is different. Our good God now desires to remove the 469 1, 6 | and one Knowledge and one God alone; so that what we hold 470 1, 6(218) | this life, if so raised by God, may lose the use of his 471 1, 6(218) | knowledge of this mystery which God gives to certain souls, 472 1, 6(220) | either of the body (for God is Spirit) or of the imagination. ~ 473 1, 7 | Oh, God help me! What a difference 474 1, 8 | belongs to the service of God she is more alert than before; 475 1, 8 | companionship. Unless her soul fails God, He will never fail, I believe, 476 1, 8 | has great confidence that God will not leave her, and 477 1, 9 | certain other occasions when God grants the soul this consolation; 478 1, 10 | great trials, shortly after God had granted her this favour, 479 2, 1 | withdraw ourselves from God this great blessing would 480 2, 3 | soul, which must be where God Himself dwells, and I do 481 2, 3 | instantaneous communication of God to the soul is so great 482 2, 3 | this soul) is made one with God, Who, being likewise a Spirit, 483 2, 4 | in that centre with its God. We might say that union 484 2, 5 | says: "He who is joined to God becomes one spirit with 485 2, 6 | is endowed with life by God. Very often these aspirations 486 2, 6 | breasts, where it seems that God is ever sustaining the soul, 487 2, 7 | ourselves of it for the love of God, that same Lord will fill 488 2, 7 | I am in them."234 ~Oh, God help me! How true are these 489 2, 8 | reaches the state in which God grants it this favour, it 490 2, 8 | smallest offence against God. It is also strongly desirous 491 2, 8 | real penance comes when God takes away its health and 492 2, 9 | one or two comparisons: God grant they may be of some 493 3, 2 | in seeking the honour of God. It appears that the words 494 3, 2 | the glory and honour of God, for which she would gladly 495 3, 4 | longing for the will of God to be done in her that whatever 496 3, 5 | love to commend them to God, and they would rejoice 497 3, 6 | they would have fruition of God, their attitude would not 498 3, 7 | the thought of enjoying God and desire to escape from 499 3, 9 | prayer but our realization of God's special care for us in 500 3, 9 | innermost Mansion, where God dwells in our souls, and
