1 Intro, 0| task of her after-life, I will relate in Father Raymond' 2 Intro, 0| Oh, if you had seen what I see, you would not distract 3 Intro, 0| the genius of Pope Gregory I., one of the few men whom 4 Intro, 0| word as to the translation. I have almost always followed 5 Intro, 0| the Dialogo. Once or twice I have preferred the cinquecento 6 Intro, 0| same phrase. In such cases I have occasionally taken 7 1, 1 | observe My commandment, will I manifest Myself; and he 8 1, 1 | be one thing with Me and I with him. In several places 9 1, 1 | may be seen more clearly, I will mention what I remember 10 1, 1 | clearly, I will mention what I remember having heard from 11 1, 1 | among the beauties which I have given to the soul, 12 1, 1 | Me through love. And yet I tell you, if you should 13 1, 1 | should ask Me, who these are, I should reply" (said the 14 1, 2 | said: "O Eternal Father, I accuse myself before You, 15 1, 2 | my neighbor must endure, I implore You, in Your kindness, 16 1, 3 | infinite satisfaction? However, I wish that you should know, 17 1, 3 | infinite grief. Infinite grief I wish from My creature in 18 1, 3 | explained this when he said: If I had the tongues of angels, 19 1, 3 | tongues of angels, and if I knew the things of the future 20 1, 4 | I have shown you, dearest 21 1, 4 | sustained purely as such. And I say, that the guilt is punished 22 1, 4 | then, for pains, so that I may receive satisfaction 23 1, 4 | Supreme Truth. Wherefore I reply that this is the way, 24 1, 4 | is derived from Me, since I have loved both you and 25 1, 4 | the ineffable love which I had for you, wishing to 26 1, 4 | re-create you to Grace, I have washed you, and re-created 27 1, 4 | My Name. If you act thus, I will satisfy for your sins, 28 1, 4 | ignorance are effaced, and I shall not remember that 29 1, 4 | ever offended Me. In others I will satisfy through the 30 1, 4 | which you have to Me, and I will give to them according 31 1, 4 | doctrine of My servants, will I remit both guilt and penalty, 32 1, 4 | virtue and grace in general. I say then, that, through 33 1, 4 | The fruit which I destine for them, constrained 34 1, 4 | of My servants, is that I give them light, and that 35 1, 4 | give them light, and that I wake up in them the hound 36 1, 4 | Sometimes I allow the world to show 37 1, 4 | the Eternal Life. And so I draw them by these, and 38 1, 4 | the roads and ways which I use, through love alone, 39 1, 4 | may be fulfilled in them. I am constrained to do so 40 1, 4 | inestimable love of Mine, by which I created them, and by the 41 1, 4 | grief of My servants, since I am no despiser of their 42 1, 4 | and humble prayers; rather I accept them, inasmuch as 43 1, 4 | accept them, inasmuch as I am He who give them this 44 1, 4 | grief for their loss. But I do not, in general, grant 45 1, 4 | suffering; and, inasmuch as I told you that they do receive 46 1, 4 | that, by that way which I have told you, that is, 47 1, 4 | way be broken. And yet, I say to you, that, in spite 48 1, 4 | not used the dowry which I gave him, giving him memory 49 1, 4 | This is the dowry which I have given you all, and 50 1, 4 | which follows the guilt, as I have already said when speaking 51 1, 4 | before Me for your neighbors. I say this to you and to the 52 1, 4 | father of your soul, whom I have given you on earth. 53 1, 5 | knowledge of the truth, since I have already told you that, 54 1, 5 | grows in grief. Therefore, I say to you all, that you 55 1, 5 | it will be given you, for I deny nothing to him who 56 1, 5 | whatever mode or circumstance I may send them to her. Patience 57 1, 6 | I wish also that you should 58 1, 6 | Me, except in so far as I count done to Me that which 59 1, 6 | under your eyes, as to whom, I say, you are all obliged 60 1, 6 | positive acts of sin, as I have related to you. It 61 1, 7 | I have told you how all sins 62 1, 7 | through the principles which I exposed to you, that is, 63 1, 7 | religion; and, therefore, I said to you, that it was 64 1, 7 | founded; and, truly indeed did I say to you, that charity 65 1, 7 | knowing that, by My grace, I have drawn her out of darkness 66 1, 7 | This is the means which I have given you, that you 67 1, 7 | desire of the donor, as I have shown above, when I 68 1, 7 | I have shown above, when I declared to you that the 69 1, 7 | the various graces which I have entrusted to her to 70 1, 7 | neighbor; but, although I have given them in such 71 1, 7 | learn, that, in many cases I give one virtue, to be as 72 1, 7 | that is to say, to one I will give principally love, 73 1, 7 | and many other virtues, I place, indifferently, in 74 1, 7 | things but also of temporal. I use the word temporal for 75 1, 7 | physical life of man; all these I have given indifferently, 76 1, 7 | given indifferently, and I have not placed them all 77 1, 7 | for love of his fellow. I could easily have created 78 1, 7 | both for body and soul, but I wish that one should have 79 1, 7 | concerned. See then, that I have made men My ministers, 80 1, 7 | Wherefore, I show you that in My house 81 1, 7 | many mansions, and that I wish for no other thing 82 1, 8 | Up to the present, I have taught you how a man 83 1, 8 | Now I wish to tell you further, 84 1, 8 | the salvation of souls. I say, also, to you, that, 85 1, 8 | externally upon the neighbor, as I have said to you; and, if 86 2, 1 | holy and sweet works which I seek from My servants; these 87 2, 1 | virtues of the soul, as I have told you. They not 88 2, 1 | neither loving that which I love, nor hating that which 89 2, 1 | love, nor hating that which I hate. This virtue of discretion 90 2, 1 | from self-knowledge. And I have already said to you, 91 2, 1 | My mysteries, with which I work in her soul and in 92 2, 1 | needs for salvation, as I said to you above. Whatever 93 2, 2 | discretion, in the way that I have already told you, from 94 2, 2 | patience, which proves that I am in the soul and the soul 95 2, 3 | fruits and the works which I seek from the soul, the 96 2, 3 | sake, asking, 'What can I do to endure suffering for 97 2, 3 | suffering for You, oh Lord?' I replied to you, speaking 98 2, 3 | speaking in your mind, 'I take delight in few words 99 2, 3 | few words and many works.' I wished to show you that 100 2, 3 | words, saying: 'Lord, Lord, I would do something for You,' 101 2, 3 | much pleasure; but that I desired the manifold works 102 2, 3 | the other virtues, which I have mentioned to you above, 103 2, 3 | other principle than this, I judge to be a mere calling 104 2, 3 | they are finite works, and I, who am Infinite, seek infinite 105 2, 3 | I wish therefore that the 106 2, 3 | were placed in penance, I should receive a finite 107 2, 3 | finite operation, which I have called a word, should 108 2, 3 | will is that due which, as I told you, the virtue of 109 2, 3 | manifold works, and in these I take delight. And then I 110 2, 3 | I take delight. And then I said that I desired few 111 2, 3 | delight. And then I said that I desired few words, and many 112 2, 3 | the use of the word 'many' I assign no particular number 113 2, 3 | increase infinitely, and yet I do not, by this, exclude 114 2, 3 | by this, exclude words, I merely said that I wished 115 2, 3 | words, I merely said that I wished few of them, showing 116 2, 3 | was finite, and therefore I called them of little account; 117 2, 3 | endlessly, boundlessly, since I am the Supreme and Eternal 118 2, 3 | which proceeds from love, as I have told you) gives to 119 2, 3 | with a restricted love, as I have said, not doing herself 120 2, 3 | fruit on him. Thus have I shown you, that, if virtue 121 2, 3 | been truly conceived; for, I have already told you, that 122 2, 3 | general and in particular, as I have said to you before, 123 2, 3 | have said to you before, so I declare now that, in truth, 124 2, 4 | this evil, for which reason I pray Your divine and eternal 125 2, 4 | Your people, and never will I depart from before Your 126 2, 4 | before Your presence until I see that you grant them 127 2, 4 | For what is it to me if I have life, and Your people 128 2, 4 | principal cause of this? I desire, then, and beg of 129 2, 4 | mercy on Your people, and I adjure You that You do this 130 2, 4 | enjoy Your Eternal Good. I see therefore that through 131 2, 4 | love of Yours, therefore, I constrain You, and implore 132 2, 5 | What I say of the universal body 133 2, 5 | the Christian religion) I also say of My ministers, 134 2, 5 | confounded falsehood. For I give this Blood and use 135 2, 5 | darkness of mortal sin; to him, I say, It gives death and 136 2, 5 | contrition and repentance. I say then that the Blood 137 2, 5 | Wherefore I gave My Word, My only-begotten 138 2, 5 | possession of eternal life -- so I, with My dignity, joined 139 2, 5 | you had lost by sin; for I was incapable of suffering, 140 2, 5 | satisfy for the above reason, I sent My Word, My own Son, 141 2, 5 | him to that good for which I had created him. This human 142 2, 5 | being thus joined together, I received and accepted the 143 2, 5 | ones debilitated by guilt. I say therefore that the mark 144 2, 6 | And I wish you to know, My daughter, 145 2, 6 | daughter, that, although I have re-created and restored 146 2, 6 | My only-begotten Son, as I have said, men are not grateful, 147 2, 6 | account of the graces which I have given them, and continue 148 2, 6 | injuries from Me, as if I desired anything else than 149 2, 6 | I say to you that they will 150 2, 6 | through his being which I have given him, creating 151 2, 6 | and became My enemy. And I, with My humility, destroyed 152 2, 6 | the service of the devil, I made you free. And, not 153 2, 6 | free. And, not only did I give you liberty, but, if 154 2, 6 | true and genuine virtue, as I have said to you above, 155 2, 6 | they receive. Wherefore I say to you, that they ask 156 2, 6 | become My enemies, though I have reconciled them, by 157 2, 6 | there is a remedy with which I appease My wrath -- that 158 2, 6 | Me with this bond which I have given you, because 159 2, 6 | have given you, because I wished to do mercy to the 160 2, 6 | Therefore I give My servants hunger 161 2, 6 | constrained by their tears, I may mitigate the fury of 162 2, 6 | I promise you, that, by this 163 2, 6 | servants, and thus will I fulfill your desire if you, 164 2, 6 | world's persecutions, for I will protect you, and My 165 2, 7 | Wherefore I have told you that I have 166 2, 7 | Wherefore I have told you that I have made a Bridge of My 167 2, 7 | and this is the truth. I wish that you, My children, 168 2, 7 | participate in that Good for which I had created them, and My 169 2, 7 | fulfilled. This truth is that I have created man to My own 170 2, 7 | remained in the state in which I had placed him. He, not 171 2, 7 | remedy your great evils, I have given you the Bridge 172 2, 7 | to take the remedy which I have offered, but to be 173 2, 8 | who walk in the darkness. I also wish you to look at 174 2, 8 | greatness of the Deity thereby. I say then that this Bridge 175 2, 8 | constitutes the union which I have made with man. ~ 176 2, 8 | road which was broken, as I said to you, in order that 177 2, 8 | and gave out a stench, as I have said to you above. 178 2, 9 | malignant debtors. Wherefore, if I understand aright, Oh, Supreme 179 2, 9 | Supreme and Eternal Truth, I am the thief and You have 180 2, 9 | been punished for me. For I see Your Word, Your Son, 181 2, 9 | has conceived towards You. I remember, my Lord, that 182 2, 9 | this to me, willingly would I see and hear it." ~ 183 2, 10 | are to be understood: "If I am lifted up from the earth, 184 2, 10 | lifted up from the earth, I will draw all things unto 185 2, 10 | her, and said: "First, as I have shown you that for 186 2, 10 | you wished, and ask Me, I will now explain to you 187 2, 10 | the nature of this Bridge. I have told you, My daughter, 188 2, 10 | through the union which I have made with man, whom 189 2, 10 | have made with man, whom I formed of the clay of the 190 2, 10 | states of the soul, which I will explain to you below. 191 2, 10 | consumed with ineffable love. I say consumed, because He 192 2, 10 | For this reason I said to you that, being 193 2, 10 | me ipsum,' that is, 'If I am lifted on high I will 194 2, 10 | If I am lifted on high I will draw all things to 195 2, 10 | could you be drawn to Me, I sent Him in order that He 196 2, 10 | ineffable love, with which I love you, the heart of man 197 2, 10 | love. Greater love, then, I could not show you, than 198 2, 10 | the affection of love, as I have said, it is drawn together 199 2, 10 | My Truth said well, 'If I am lifted on high,' &c., 200 2, 11 | sweet Son, My Word, of whom I have spoken to you, He, 201 2, 11 | enter, wherefore He says: 'I am the Way, the Truth, and 202 2, 11 | and this is the truth, and I have already shown you that 203 2, 11 | damnation. So then you see, that I have shown you both Truth 204 2, 12 | you reason for grief, and I will that you and My other 205 2, 12 | Bridge, how it is, and this I have told you in order to 206 2, 12 | Truth, made in the way that I have shown you, that is -- 207 2, 13 | returned to Me the Father, I sent the Master, that is 208 2, 13 | injustice and false judgment, I will in time discourse to 209 2, 13 | This much I have said to you in order 210 2, 13 | that of this Body of Christ I made a Bridge by the union 211 2, 13 | is the road to be found? I will tell you, that is, 212 2, 13 | will tell you, that is, I will rather tell those who 213 2, 13 | ignorance on this point. I tell you that this way of 214 2, 13 | of His doctrine, of which I have spoken to you, confirmed 215 2, 13 | with a perfect light, as I have said to you, and, as 216 2, 13 | Wherefore, first I gave you the Bridge of My 217 2, 13 | He meant when He said, 'I came from the Father, and 218 2, 13 | came from the Father, and I return to the Father, and 219 2, 13 | to life.' Then He says, 'I will return to you, I will 220 2, 13 | I will return to you, I will not leave you orphans, 221 2, 13 | if My Truth should say, 'I will go to the Father and 222 2, 13 | in the way of truth, that I have given you.' He said 223 2, 13 | flesh and blood, but, as I have said, building the 224 2, 13 | Now I have fully shown to you 225 2, 13 | same thing with it. And I have shown it to the ignorant, 226 2, 13 | those who teach it; and I have explained that they 227 2, 13 | And I have shown how My Son, returning 228 2, 13 | came upon the disciples, as I have said. For in His bodily 229 2, 13 | And now I wish to tell you that which 230 2, 13 | wish to tell you that which I, the Truth, promised you, 231 2, 13 | punishment and torment; wherefore I say to you, My dearest sons, 232 2, 13 | walk the wicked, of whom I will presently speak to 233 2, 13 | are those sinners for whom I beg you to pray to Me, and 234 2, 13 | pray to Me, and for whom I ask in addition your tears 235 2, 14 | sins of Your creatures! I do not wonder that You say 236 2, 14 | sin and return to You, 'I do not remember that you 237 2, 14 | Me.' Oh, ineffable Mercy! I do not wonder that You say 238 2, 14 | those who persecute You, 'I wish you to pray for such, 239 2, 14 | for such, in order that I may do them mercy.' Oh, 240 2, 14 | that is, in Your saints. If I turn to the earth, it abounds 241 2, 14 | for on every side to which I turn my thought, I find 242 2, 14 | which I turn my thought, I find nothing but mercy. 243 2, 14 | Forgive my ignorance, that I presume thus to chatter 244 2, 15 | Me of My mercy, because I gave it you to taste and 245 2, 15 | to see in the word which I spoke to you when I said: ' 246 2, 15 | which I spoke to you when I said: 'these are those for 247 2, 15 | these are those for whom I pray you to intercede with 248 2, 15 | and an infinite thing. But I have wished that you should 249 2, 15 | the dignity of man, which I have shown you above, so 250 2, 15 | servants and slaves of sin. I have made them trees of 251 2, 15 | because they are dead, as I have already said to you. 252 2, 17 | nevertheless, in My mercy I sustain them, I do not command 253 2, 17 | My mercy I sustain them, I do not command the earth 254 2, 17 | heaven of the soul. Heaven I call her (the soul) because 255 2, 17 | her (the soul) because so I made her, living in her 256 2, 19 | into false judgment, as I will explain to you below. 257 2, 19 | beaten out with pains, as I said to you above, when 258 2, 19 | said to you above, when I said that of His Body He 259 2, 19 | My Truth when He said: 'I will send the Paraclete, 260 2, 19 | And it was reproved when I sent the Holy Spirit on 261 2, 20 | words that Christ said: "I will send the Holy Spirit, 262 2, 20 | continuous reproof that I make to the world by means 263 2, 20 | that sweet reproof that I have fixed forever, in the 264 2, 20 | souls. And they cannot say 'I had no one who reproved 265 2, 20 | them vice and virtue. And I have made them see the fruit 266 2, 20 | tormented. Which torments I permitted for the increase 267 2, 20 | nourished with a like food, and I am God now as then. My power 268 2, 20 | cannot become weak. So that I can and will succor him 269 2, 21 | worm of conscience, which I told you was blinded self-love. 270 2, 21 | having depreciated My mercy, I with justice send them, 271 2, 21 | offended Me. Tormented, I say, by My ministering devils 272 2, 22 | that follow upon these. So I say to you, that in Hell, 273 2, 22 | remember well, you know that I showed him to you in his 274 2, 22 | that fire can consume. But I, by Divine justice, have 275 2, 23 | Day of Judgment. Already I have told you of two, and 276 2, 23 | greatly man deceives himself, I will tell you of the third -- 277 2, 23 | between two thieves. Then I concealed My power in Him, 278 2, 23 | separated from human nature, but I let Him suffer like man 279 2, 24 | their salvation, because, as I have already told you, the 280 2, 25 | participating in that good that I have in Myself, everyone 281 2, 25 | the universal good, and I would not that you should 282 2, 25 | particular good, of which I have told you, for themselves 283 2, 25 | only-begotten Son in the way that I will relate to you. So you 284 2, 25 | cannot desire except what I desire, because their free-will 285 2, 25 | ineffable love with which I created her in My image 286 2, 25 | satisfied in herself, and, as I have told you, the body 287 2, 25 | I told you of the happiness 288 2, 25 | But their bodily eye, as I told you, will delight itself 289 2, 26 | I have told you of the dignity 290 2, 26 | spiritual and temporal, which I did for them by means of 291 2, 26 | bodily toils, in the way that I have told you. ~ 292 2, 26 | death, let him come and I will give it to him.'" ~ 293 2, 27 | miserably offended Me. And I have set him in this life 294 2, 27 | may come to him, because I have made My creatures strong, 295 2, 27 | himself can do nothing, unless I allow him. And I let him 296 2, 27 | unless I allow him. And I let him tempt, through love, 297 2, 27 | themselves feeble, when I have made them strong, and 298 2, 27 | forced to do so, for as I told you they cannot be 299 2, 27 | comes, see the good which I have prepared for them, 300 2, 27 | embrace it with hatred, as I told you. So that neither 301 2, 27 | every one their place, as I have told you, and they 302 2, 27 | I have told you that the Devil 303 2, 27 | their different conditions. I have told you this, because 304 2, 27 | have told you this, because I now speak to you of those 305 2, 27 | themselves to My injury, and I will relate to you their 306 2, 27 | Now I want to show you how they 307 2, 27 | the Truth, as, you know, I showed you in the beginning 308 2, 27 | mortal sin. You know that I then showed you Myself under 309 2, 27 | makes up his mind, saying, 'I wish to follow Christ crucified,' 310 2, 27 | inestimable sweetness, as I showed you then, some finding 311 2, 27 | And you know that then I said to you, 'I am your 312 2, 27 | that then I said to you, 'I am your God, unmoving and 313 2, 27 | unmoving and unchangeable,' and I do not draw away from any 314 2, 27 | who wants to come to Me. I have shown them the Truth, 315 2, 27 | Myself visible to them, and I have shown them what it 316 2, 27 | And because -- by sin, as I said to you above -- the 317 2, 27 | with tempestuous waters, I gave you the Bridge, so 318 2, 27 | I have shown you how they 319 2, 27 | disordinate fear, and how I am your God, immovable, 320 2, 27 | of holy desire. And this I have shown you under the 321 2, 27 | the figure of the Tree, as I told you." ~ 322 2, 28 | Now I want to show you to whom 323 2, 28 | do not. And as, so far, I have shown you the damnation 324 2, 28 | their own sensuality, now I wish to tell you how it 325 2, 28 | body have those, of whom I have narrated to you, who, 326 2, 28 | having she desires. And as I told you pain is far from 327 2, 28 | they satisfied. Wherefore I told you that the tasting 328 2, 28 | seeing and knowing Me, as I have told you. In this life 329 2, 28 | tasting the above, with which I have told you they will 330 2, 28 | money in this present life? I reply to you, they have 331 2, 28 | themselves in Mine, and I will nothing but your sanctification. 332 2, 28 | affection of My love. For I told you that My servants 333 2, 28 | desire nothing but what I desire. If I allow the Devil 334 2, 28 | nothing but what I desire. If I allow the Devil to trouble 335 2, 28 | prove them in virtue, as I told you above, they resist 336 2, 28 | other than good, for which I permit these tribulations 337 2, 28 | themselves favored because I wish to punish them in this 338 2, 28 | not pricked, because as I told you, they have known 339 2, 29 | delusion of Your creatures. I would that, when it is pleasing 340 2, 30 | most delightful daughter, I am not a Despiser, but the 341 2, 30 | holy desire, and therefore I will show and declare to 342 2, 30 | Devil, receiving damnation, I showed you the methods they 343 2, 30 | should use; nevertheless, now I will declare it to you more 344 2, 30 | without the other. The soul I created in My image and 345 2, 30 | made of love, and, by love, I created her. And therefore 346 2, 30 | created her. And therefore I told you that the affection 347 2, 30 | intellect, saying, as it were, 'I will love, because the food 348 2, 30 | because the food on which I feed is love.' Then the 349 2, 30 | were, 'If you will love, I will give you that which 350 2, 30 | increate charity with which I created her, and, in contemplating 351 2, 30 | sees how, through mercy, I have lent her time and drawn 352 2, 30 | perfection in herself, as I will tell you below. So, 353 2, 30 | I have already told you that 354 2, 30 | the soul is so great that I cannot be offended by one 355 2, 30 | presents to the other, as I told you, good or evil, 356 2, 30 | becomes one thing with it. And I tell you truly, that, when 357 2, 30 | binds itself with reason. I, then, by grace, rest in 358 2, 30 | together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.' And 359 2, 30 | And this is the truth. I have already told you that 360 2, 30 | except by Him, and therefore I made of Him a Bridge with 361 2, 30 | those three steps figure, as I will narrate to you below, 362 2, 31 | I have explained to you the 363 2, 31 | her three powers. Of which I told you above, when you 364 2, 32 | come to Me and drink, for I am the Fountain of the Water 365 2, 32 | the Sea Pacific, because I am one thing with Him, and 366 2, 32 | Son. And why did He say: 'I am the Fountain of Living 367 2, 32 | and therefore of Him did I make for you a Bridge. No 368 2, 33 | I will now return to the three 369 2, 33 | which you should follow, I am in your midst, reposing, 370 2, 33 | unless a man has a companion, I cannot be in the midst; 371 2, 33 | which is naught, because I am He that is. So that he 372 2, 33 | gathered together in My name, I will be in the midst of 373 2, 33 | be in the midst of them.' I said to you that two were 374 2, 33 | the ineffable love, which I have shown you by means 375 2, 33 | only-begotten Son, whom I have placed as the object 376 2, 33 | congregated together in My Name, I am in the midst of them 377 2, 33 | disposed to thirst. Thirst, I say, for virtue, and the 378 2, 33 | Me, for through Him have I shown My love to man. He 379 2, 33 | and walks safely because I am in the midst of her. 380 2, 35 | fulfills it, as said My Truth, 'I come not to destroy the 381 2, 36 | I told you that no one could 382 2, 36 | virtue, and the love which I bear to the soul, so that 383 2, 37 | above their imperfection, I withdraw from their minds 384 2, 37 | battles and perplexities. This I do so that, coming to perfect 385 2, 37 | humility, for which purpose I treat them thus, without 386 2, 37 | these weak ones, of whom I speak, relax their energy, 387 2, 37 | providence, and that what I give and promise to My creatures, 388 2, 37 | promise to My creatures, I give and promise to them 389 2, 37 | good and the end for which I created them. My creatures 390 2, 37 | should see and know that I wish nothing but their good, 391 2, 37 | give them eternal life, I created them in My image 392 2, 37 | the Lord, with the words, 'I have never known Him.' The 393 2, 37 | irrespective of themselves, for I, who am the Rewarder of 394 2, 37 | of filial love, because I respond to them with the 395 2, 37 | servant does his master, I pay them their wages according 396 2, 37 | according to their deserts, but I do not reveal Myself to 397 2, 37 | do some of these of whom I have spoken, but while they 398 2, 37 | state of mercenary love, I do not manifest Myself to 399 2, 37 | love of the friend. And I will manifest Myself to 400 2, 37 | be one thing with Me and I with him, and I will manifest 401 2, 37 | with Me and I with him, and I will manifest Myself to 402 2, 37 | wherefore My Truth said: 'I will come and we will dwell 403 2, 38 | Do you know how I manifest Myself to the soul 404 2, 38 | proportion to her desire, but I make three special manifestations. 405 2, 38 | of their love. For though I am no Acceptor of creatures, 406 2, 38 | no Acceptor of creatures, I am an Acceptor of holy desires, 407 2, 38 | she seeks in Me. Sometimes I manifest Myself (and this 408 2, 38 | things of the future. This I do in many and diverse ways, 409 2, 38 | diverse ways, according as I see need in the soul herself 410 2, 38 | manifestation takes place. I then form in the mind the 411 2, 38 | wishing to know My power, and I satisfy her by causing her 412 2, 38 | the wisdom of My Son, and I satisfy her by placing His 413 2, 39 | Why Christ did not say "I will manifest My Father," 414 2, 39 | manifest My Father," but "I will manifest myself." ~ 415 2, 39 | together. And so it is that I manifest Myself to you, 416 2, 39 | Wherefore if My Truth said, 'I will manifest Myself to 417 2, 39 | But why did He not say, 'I will manifest My Father 418 2, 39 | wished to show that He and I are not separate from each 419 2, 39 | He had, He had from Me, I having nothing from Him; 420 2, 39 | Son proceeds from Me, not I from Him, though I with 421 2, 39 | not I from Him, though I with Him and He with Me 422 2, 39 | this reason He did not say 'I will manifest the Father,' 423 2, 39 | manifest the Father,' but 'I will manifest Myself,' being 424 2, 39 | manifested Himself to Me, because I am one thing with Him, and 425 2, 39 | one thing with Him, and I will manifest to you, by 426 2, 39 | third reason was, because I, being invisible, could 427 2, 39 | Word, according to what I told you in the treatise 428 2, 39 | intellect alone, for, as I am, you cannot see Me now. 429 2, 39 | cannot see Me now. Wherefore I veiled the Divine nature 430 2, 39 | Me through that medium. I, the Invisible, made Myself, 431 2, 39 | was that He did not say 'I will manifest the Father 432 2, 39 | Father to you,' but rather, 'I will manifest Myself to 433 2, 39 | manifests himself to Me, will I manifest myself to you, 434 2, 39 | understand why He did not say 'I will manifest the Father 435 2, 40 | figured in the Body of My Son. I have told you what was meant 436 2, 40 | powers of the soul, and now I will show you how they signify 437 2, 40 | treating of the third state, I wish to show you how a man 438 2, 40 | that is of friend and son. I call filial love perfect, 439 2, 40 | of a friend, which is why I told you that a friend grows 440 2, 40 | take to arrive thereat? I will tell you. Every perfection 441 2, 40 | an imperfect state, and I, in order to develop perfection 442 2, 40 | He said to the disciples 'I will go and will return 443 2, 40 | should come after. He said 'I will go and will return 444 2, 40 | disciples, He also returned, as I told you above, for the 445 2, 40 | and from the Son. Now, as I told you, in order to raise 446 2, 40 | soul from imperfection, I withdraw Myself from her 447 2, 40 | separated herself from Me, and I deprived her of grace through 448 2, 40 | by holy confession. Then I, having returned to the 449 2, 40 | her by sentiment, which I do in order to humiliate 450 2, 40 | the three things of which I told you, that is to say: 451 2, 40 | Though she perceives that I have withdrawn Myself, she 452 2, 40 | charity, and knowing that I desire nothing but her sanctification, 453 2, 40 | arrive at perfection, that I withdraw from her, not by 454 2, 40 | sentiment. Once more do I leave her, so that she may 455 2, 41 | And I would have you know that 456 2, 41 | self-regarding considerations. I require that you should 457 2, 41 | the same love with which I love you. This indeed you 458 2, 41 | indeed you cannot do, because I loved you without being 459 2, 41 | you ought to do so. While I love you of grace, and not 460 2, 41 | of grace, and not because I owe you My love. Therefore 461 2, 41 | cannot repay the love which I require of you, and I have 462 2, 41 | which I require of you, and I have placed you in the midst 463 2, 41 | and what you do to him, I count as done to Me, which 464 2, 41 | properly dug out. Wherefore I often permit such a love 465 2, 41 | and for the same reason do I withdraw myself from the 466 2, 41 | perfection. After which I return into her with more 467 2, 41 | only- begotten Son. For I told you, if you remember, 468 3, 2 | This is that tavern, which I mentioned to you, standing 469 3, 2 | called to mental prayer, I should reply 'No.' The soul 470 3, 2 | advance by degrees, and I know well that, just as 471 3, 2 | exercises with true humility. I do not wish defects to be 472 3, 2 | and hideous sins. But, as I said, I do not wish the 473 3, 2 | hideous sins. But, as I said, I do not wish the soul to 474 3, 2 | in My mercy, and saying: 'I confess to my Creator that 475 3, 2 | passed in darkness, but I will hide myself in the 476 3, 2 | consumed, and with desire will I rejoice in my Creator.' 477 3, 2 | your sins.' And once more I gave you the light to see 478 3, 2 | these words: 'Wretch that I am, John the Baptist never 479 3, 2 | in his mother's womb. And I have committed so many sins, 480 3, 2 | offended by me, and who I am, who offend Him.' Then 481 3, 2 | Cursed that you are, for I can find no way to take 482 3, 2 | find no way to take you. If I put you down through confusion, 483 3, 2 | the wings of mercy, and if I raise you on high, you humble 484 3, 2 | yourself down to Hell, and when I go into Hell you persecute 485 3, 2 | you persecute me, so that I will return to you no more, 486 3, 2 | many prayers vocally, and I, visiting her mind sometimes 487 3, 2 | visitation, in the many ways I have told you, she should 488 3, 2 | prayer, made in the way that I have told you, will enable 489 3, 2 | but use it in the way that I have told you. ~ 490 3, 2 | only-begotten Son, and therefore I told you that some communicated 491 3, 2 | many and diverse ways, for I have told you that a holy 492 3, 2 | according to the state in which I have placed her. Each one, 493 3, 2 | was for this reason that I told you that prayer was 494 3, 2 | itself continual prayer. I have now told you how mental 495 3, 2 | vocal prayer for mental when I visit the soul. I have also 496 3, 2 | mental when I visit the soul. I have also spoken to you 497 3, 3 | Hitherto I have shown you in many ways 498 3, 3 | friendly and filial love. I tell you that she arrives 499 3, 3 | Me, when, for her good, I withdraw delight from her 500 3, 4 | Me in self-knowledge as I have told you, receives
