Christ would seem to have meant this, when He 160 1, 1 | meant this, when He said: To him who will love Me and 161 1, 1 | of mind, God was not wont to conceal, from the eye of 162 1, 1 | His servants, but rather to manifest it; and, that among 163 1, 1 | among other things, He used to say: "Open the eye of your 164 1, 1 | beauties which I have given to the soul, creating her in 165 1, 1 | clothed with Mine, are united to Mine, are conformed to Mine." 166 1, 1 | united to Mine, are conformed to Mine."

In particular, to those who dispose themselves, 202 1, 4 | humbly and with reverence, to receive the doctrine of 203 1, 4 | since they will thus come to true knowledge and contrition 204 1, 4 | or less degree, according to the extent of their exercise 205 1, 4 | great in their despair as to condemn them through contempt 206 1, 4 | Sometimes I allow the world to show them what it is, so 207 1, 4 | stability it has, and may come to lift their desire beyond 208 1, 4 | use, through love alone, to lead them back to grace, 209 1, 4 | alone, to lead them back to grace, so that My truth 210 1, 4 | in them. I am constrained to do so by that inestimable 211 1, 4 | do not, in general, grant to these others, for whom they 212 1, 4 | satisfaction for the penalty due to them, but, only for their 213 1, 4 | disposed, on their side, to receive, with perfect love, 214 1, 4 | of those who offer them to Me, for their sakes, with 215 1, 4 | their guilt; for, beginning to learn, they vomit forth 216 1, 4 | them, through mercy, turns to their own ruin and judgment, 217 1, 4 | be broken. And yet, I say to you, that, in spite of his 218 1, 4 | with his own hand apply It to the diamond over his heart 219 1, 4 | giving him memory so as to remember My benefits, intellect, 220 1, 4 | benefits, intellect, so as to see and know the truth, 221 1, 4 | you all, and which ought to render fruit to Me, the 222 1, 4 | which ought to render fruit to Me, the Father; but, if 223 1, 4 | man barters and sells it to the devil, the devil, if 224 1, 4 | if he choose, has a right to seize on everything that 225 1, 4 | hatred, and unkindness to his neighbors (being also 226 1, 4 | sufficient contrition and love to satisfy for the penalty 227 1, 4 | the penalty also, they go to the pains of Purgatory, 228 1, 4 | desire of the soul united to Me, who am the Infinite 229 1, 4 | or less degree, according to the measure of love, obtained 230 1, 4 | with which a man measures to Me, do he receive in himself 231 1, 4 | goodness. Labor, therefore, to increase the fire of your 232 1, 4 | moment pass without crying to Me with humble voice, or 233 1, 4 | your neighbors. I say this to you and to the father of 234 1, 4 | neighbors. I say this to you and to the father of your soul, 235 1, 4 | and make yourselves dead to all your own sensuality." ~ 236 1, 5 | How very pleasing to God is the willing desire 237 1, 5 | God is the willing desire to suffer for Him. ~ 238 1, 5 | Very pleasing to Me, dearest daughter, is 239 1, 5 | daughter, is the willing desire to bear every pain and fatigue, 240 1, 5 | Me; loving Me she comes to know more of My truth, and 241 1, 5 | against Me. You asked Me to sustain you, and to punish 242 1, 5 | asked Me to sustain you, and to punish the faults of others 243 1, 5 | grief. Therefore, I say to you all, that you should 244 1, 5 | you, for I deny nothing to him who asks of Me in truth. 245 1, 5 | reason (if the soul elect to love Me) she should elect 246 1, 5 | love Me) she should elect to endure pains for Me in whatever 247 1, 5 | circumstance I may send them to her. Patience cannot be 248 1, 5 | will not prove yourselves to be spouses of My Truth, 249 1, 6 | hatred of Me, does an injury to his neighbor, and to himself, 250 1, 6 | injury to his neighbor, and to himself, who is his own 251 1, 6 | because you are obliged to love your neighbor as yourself, 252 1, 6 | and loving him, you ought to help him spiritually, with 253 1, 6 | and temporally, according to the need in which he may 254 1, 6 | desires that he is bound to offer for him to Me. Thus, 255 1, 6 | is bound to offer for him to Me. Thus, every act of help 256 1, 6 | follows that he must do evil. To whom does he evil? First 257 1, 6 | does he evil? First of all to himself, and then to his 258 1, 6 | all to himself, and then to his neighbor, not against 259 1, 6 | in so far as I count done to Me that which he does to 260 1, 6 | to Me that which he does to himself. To himself he does 261 1, 6 | which he does to himself. To himself he does the injury 262 1, 6 | worse than this he cannot do to his neighbor. Him he injures 263 1, 6 | love, with which he ought to help him by means of prayer 264 1, 6 | and holy desire offered to Me for him. This is an assistance 265 1, 6 | which is owed in general to every rational creature; 266 1, 6 | particular when it is done to those who are close at hand, 267 1, 6 | hand, under your eyes, as to whom, I say, you are all 268 1, 6 | say, you are all obliged to help one another by word 269 1, 6 | your neighbor may be seen to be in need; counseling him 270 1, 6 | affection of love which he ought to have towards Me, and his 271 1, 6 | his neighbor, according to the diverse ways which may 272 1, 6 | His general cruelty is to see himself and other creatures 273 1, 6 | Being thus cruel he may wish to extend his cruelty still 274 1, 6 | demons, tempting, according to his power, his fellow-creatures 275 1, 6 | power, his fellow-creatures to abandon virtue for vice; 276 1, 6 | makes himself an instrument to destroy life and to give 277 1, 6 | instrument to destroy life and to give death. Cruelty towards 278 1, 6 | neighbor, but causes him to seize the goods of others, 279 1, 6 | his neighbor being forced to redeem, to his own loss, 280 1, 6 | being forced to redeem, to his own loss, his own goods, 281 1, 6 | all mercy, unless he turn to kindness and benevolence 282 1, 6 | neighbor, reputing one's self to be greater than he; and 283 1, 6 | this way is injury done to him. And if a man be in 284 1, 6 | of that which you ought to give him; an open sin is 285 1, 6 | of sin, as I have related to you. It is, therefore, indeed 286 1, 7 | it is that virtues differ to such an extent in creatures. ~ 287 1, 7 | principles which I exposed to you, that is, because men 288 1, 7 | love, which gives light to every virtue. In the same 289 1, 7 | and, therefore, I said to you, that it was in the 290 1, 7 | in the neighbor, that is to say in the love of him, 291 1, 7 | truly indeed did I say to you, that charity gives 292 1, 7 | that charity gives life to all the virtues, because 293 1, 7 | herself. She attributes to Me, through humility, the 294 1, 7 | time with a medium, that is to say, without the medium 295 1, 7 | of any advantage accruing to herself, and with the medium 296 1, 7 | grateful and acceptable to Me, but by conceiving, hatred 297 1, 7 | profit, you should do it to your neighbor. This proves 298 1, 7 | neighbor and making prayers to Me, seeking with sweet and 299 1, 7 | of My truth, never ceases to serve the whole world in 300 1, 7 | particular case according to the disposition of the recipient 301 1, 7 | shown above, when I declared to you that the endurance of 302 1, 7 | desire, was not sufficient to punish a fault. ~ 303 1, 7 | whole world, thus coming to the aid of its neediness, 304 1, 7 | inasmuch as she has done good to herself by the conception 305 1, 7 | drawn the life of grace, to fix her eye on the needs 306 1, 7 | who are at hand, according to the various graces which 307 1, 7 | graces which I have entrusted to her to administer; one she 308 1, 7 | I have entrusted to her to administer; one she helps 309 1, 7 | and this indeed all give to their neighbor, the edification 310 1, 7 | and many others, too many to enumerate, which are brought 311 1, 7 | a different way, that is to say not all to one, but 312 1, 7 | that is to say not all to one, but to one, one virtue, 313 1, 7 | say not all to one, but to one, one virtue, and to 314 1, 7 | to one, one virtue, and to another, another, it so 315 1, 7 | happens that it is impossible to have one, without having 316 1, 7 | cases I give one virtue, to be as it were the chief 317 1, 7 | chief of the others, that is to say, to one I will give 318 1, 7 | others, that is to say, to one I will give principally 319 1, 7 | will give principally love, to another justice, to another 320 1, 7 | love, to another justice, to another humility, to one 321 1, 7 | justice, to another humility, to one a lively faith, to another 322 1, 7 | to one a lively faith, to another prudence or temperance, 323 1, 7 | temperance, or patience, to another fortitude. These, 324 1, 7 | her chief conversation, to this rather than to other 325 1, 7 | conversation, to this rather than to other virtues, and, by the 326 1, 7 | this virtue, the soul draws to herself all the other virtues, 327 1, 7 | for the things necessary to the physical life of man; 328 1, 7 | they should be My ministers to administer the graces and 329 1, 7 | state of life, who is bound to Me with this love." ~ 330 1, 8 | Up to the present, I have taught 331 1, 8 | Now I wish to tell you further, that a 332 1, 8 | proud man can do no harm to a humble one; neither can 333 1, 8 | against one who is faithful to Me, do him any harm; his 334 1, 8 | and other ways. Wherefore, to those, who need the proof 335 1, 8 | is rather proved, that is to say, the justice of a just 336 1, 8 | salvation of souls. I say, also, to you, that, not only is virtue 337 1, 8 | flattery, constantly endeavor to turn a man aside from following 338 1, 8 | neighbor, as I have said to you; and, if fortitude were 339 1, 8 | fortitude were not able to make that good proof of 340 2, 1 | from humility, and renders to each man his due. ~ 341 2, 1 | with discretion, that is to say, if her affection be 342 2, 1 | should be but the means to increase virtue according 343 2, 1 | increase virtue according to the needs of the individual, 344 2, 1 | individual, and according to what the soul sees she can 345 2, 1 | but that which gives life to the tree, to its branches, 346 2, 1 | gives life to the tree, to its branches, and its root, 347 2, 1 | And I have already said to you, that the root of discretion 348 2, 1 | and discreetly, renders to each one his due.
