If you 257 1, 4 | will satisfy for your sins, and for those of My other servants, 258 1, 4 | of love, for satisfaction and reward, both in you and 259 1, 4 | and reward, both in you and in others. In yourself you 260 1, 4 | your ignorance are effaced, and I shall not remember that 261 1, 4 | satisfy through the love and affection which you have 262 1, 4 | affection which you have to Me, and I will give to them according 263 1, 4 | dispose themselves, humbly and with reverence, to receive 264 1, 4 | will I remit both guilt and penalty, since they will 265 1, 4 | thus come to true knowledge and contrition for their sins. 266 1, 4 | that, by means of prayer, and their desire of serving 267 1, 4 | their exercise of virtue and grace in general. I say 268 1, 4 | that I give them light, and that I wake up in them the 269 1, 4 | the hound of conscience, and make them smell the odor 270 1, 4 | smell the odor of virtue, and take delight in the conversation 271 1, 4 | that, feeling its diverse and various passions, they may 272 1, 4 | little stability it has, and may come to lift their desire 273 1, 4 | their desire beyond it, and seek their native country, 274 1, 4 | which is the Eternal Life. And so I draw them by these, 275 1, 4 | so I draw them by these, and by many other ways, for 276 1, 4 | how many are the roads and ways which I use, through 277 1, 4 | by which I created them, and by the love, desire, and 278 1, 4 | and by the love, desire, and grief of My servants, since 279 1, 4 | despiser of their tears, and sweat, and humble prayers; 280 1, 4 | their tears, and sweat, and humble prayers; rather I 281 1, 4 | love for the good of souls and grief for their loss.

Wherefore, 286 1, 4 | their sakes, with suffering; and, inasmuch as I told you 287 1, 4 | the light of conscience, and by other things, satisfaction 288 1, 4 | corruption of their sins, and so receive the gift of grace. ~ 289 1, 4 | the guise of correction, and do not resist over much 290 1, 4 | fools, they are ungrateful, and ignore Me and the labors 291 1, 4 | ungrateful, and ignore Me and the labors of My servants 292 1, 4 | turns to their own ruin and judgment, not through defect 293 1, 4 | the man's own wretchedness and hardness, with which, with 294 1, 4 | can in no way be broken.

And every evil also, is done 337 1, 6 | charity with his neighbor; and thus, all evils derive from 338 1, 6 | deprivation of love of Me and her neighbor; whence, inasmuch 339 1, 6 | First of all to himself, and then to his neighbor, not 340 1, 6 | which deprives him of grace, and worse than this he cannot 341 1, 6 | help him by means of prayer and holy desire offered to Me 342 1, 6 | help one another by word and doctrine, and the example 343 1, 6 | another by word and doctrine, and the example of good works, 344 1, 6 | the example of good works, and in every other respect in 345 1, 6 | any passion of self-love; and he (a man not loving God) 346 1, 6 | love towards his neighbor; and, by not doing it, he does 347 1, 6 | you see, a special injury.

And if a man be in a position 367 1, 6 | produces also injustice and cruelty and becomes a retailer 368 1, 6 | also injustice and cruelty and becomes a retailer of the 369 1, 6 | the offense against Me, and weep over these corpses, 370 1, 6 | now, that, in all places and in all kinds of people, 371 1, 6 | produced against the neighbor, and through his medium; in no 372 1, 7 | by means of our neighbor, and how it is that virtues differ 373 1, 7 | which destroys charity and affection towards the neighbor, 374 1, 7 | neighbor, is the principle and foundation of every evil. 375 1, 7 | scandals, hatred, cruelty, and every sort of trouble proceed 376 1, 7 | poisoned the entire world, and weakened the mystical body 377 1, 7 | body of the Holy Church, and the universal body of the 378 1, 7 | the Christian religion; and, therefore, I said to you, 379 1, 7 | all virtues were founded; and, truly indeed did I say 380 1, 7 | above, she finds humility and hatred of her own sensual 381 1, 7 | bound up in her members, and which ever fights against 382 1, 7 | fights against the spirit. And, therefore, arising with 383 1, 7 | drawn her out of darkness and lifted her up into the light 384 1, 7 | loves it without any medium, and yet at the same time with 385 1, 7 | advantage accruing to herself, and with the medium of virtue, 386 1, 7 | can she become grateful and acceptable to Me, but by 387 1, 7 | conceiving, hatred of sin and love of virtue; and, when 388 1, 7 | sin and love of virtue; and, when she has thus conceived 389 1, 7 | And it cannot be otherwise, 390 1, 7 | otherwise, because love of Me and of her neighbor are one 391 1, 7 | of her neighbor are one and the same thing, and, so 392 1, 7 | one and the same thing, and, so far as the soul loves 393 1, 7 | you, that you may exercise and prove your virtue therewith; 394 1, 7 | fruit for your neighbor and making prayers to Me, seeking 395 1, 7 | to Me, seeking with sweet and amorous desire My honor 396 1, 7 | amorous desire My honor and the salvation of souls. 397 1, 7 | whole world in general, and more or less in a particular 398 1, 7 | disposition of the recipient and the ardent desire of the 399 1, 7 | example of a good life, and this indeed all give to 400 1, 7 | the edification of a holy and honorable life. These are 401 1, 7 | These are the virtues, and many others, too many to 402 1, 7 | but to one, one virtue, and to another, another, it 403 1, 7 | another fortitude. These, and many other virtues, I place, 404 1, 7 | rather than to other virtues, and, by the effect of this virtue, 405 1, 7 | in the affection of love; and so with many gifts and graces 406 1, 7 | and so with many gifts and graces of virtue, and not 407 1, 7 | gifts and graces of virtue, and not only in the case of 408 1, 7 | have given indifferently, and I have not placed them all 409 1, 7 | should need both for body and soul, but I wish that one 410 1, 7 | have need of the other, and that they should be My ministers 411 1, 7 | to administer the graces and the gifts that they have 412 1, 7 | have made men My ministers, and placed them in diverse stations 413 1, 7 | them in diverse stations and various ranks, in order 414 1, 7 | house are many mansions, and that I wish for no other 415 1, 7 | love of Me is fulfilled and completed the love of the 416 1, 7 | the love of the neighbor, and the law observed.
