How will they 122 2, 17 | they rob others? How will they draw their foul soul out 123 2, 17 | soul out of the mire, when they themselves put it there? 124 2, 17 | there?

Would they then give their life for 128 2, 17 | salvation of souls, when they will not give their substance? 129 2, 17 | give their substance? Would they give their affections when 130 2, 17 | give their affections when they are gnawed with envy? Oh, 131 2, 18 | praising My Name, which debt they are bound to pay.

They and all others, who are 142 2, 20 | following the truth which they understand through the same 143 2, 20 | salvation of souls. And they cannot say 'I had no one 144 2, 20 | them by an angel, so that they cannot say, 'the angel is 145 2, 20 | virtue in their souls. Thus, they were born in sin like you, 146 2, 20 | given to them. Wherefore, if they do not amend while they 147 2, 20 | they do not amend while they have time, they will be 148 2, 20 | amend while they have time, they will be condemned by the 149 2, 21 | betrayal of Him. So that they are reproved of this false 150 2, 21 | and, on that account, are they punished with the devils, 151 2, 21 | tortured with them. And they are reproved of injustice 152 2, 21 | reproved of injustice because they grieve more over their condemnation 153 2, 21 | which is theirs. For to Me, they ought to render love, and 154 2, 21 | it to Me, for the offense they have done Me. And they do 155 2, 21 | offense they have done Me. And they do the contrary because 156 2, 21 | do the contrary because they give to themselves love, 157 2, 21 | grieving on account of the pain they expect for their sin; so 158 2, 21 | their sin; so you see that they are guilty of injustice 159 2, 21 | other together. Wherefore, they, having depreciated My mercy, 160 2, 21 | the Devil, whose servants they made themselves through 161 2, 21 | sensuality, so that, together, they are punished and tormented, 162 2, 21 | and tormented, as together they have offended Me. Tormented, 163 2, 22 | torments. The first is, that they see themselves deprived 164 2, 22 | that, were it possible, they would rather choose the 165 2, 22 | torments, because in seeing him they know themselves more, that 166 2, 22 | themselves more, that is to say, they know that, by their own 167 2, 22 | that, by their own sin, they have made themselves worthy 168 2, 22 | painful to them, because they see him in his own form, 169 2, 22 | The fourth torment that they have is the fire. This fire 170 2, 22 | many others. Now because they did not amend themselves 171 2, 22 | after the first reproof that they had of injustice and false 172 2, 22 | which was that, in death, they would not hope in Me, nor 173 2, 22 | for their own pain, have they thus so miserably received 174 2, 24 | hatred is so great that they cannot will or desire any 175 2, 24 | or desire any good, but they continually blaspheme Me. 176 2, 24 | Me. And do you know why they cannot desire good? Because 177 2, 24 | free-will is bound. Wherefore they cannot merit, having lost, 178 2, 24 | cannot merit, having lost, as they have, the time to do so. 179 2, 24 | have, the time to do so. If they finish their life, dying 180 2, 24 | good to their neighbor, and they blaspheme Me, because their 181 2, 24 | of their damnation when they should arrive in torment 182 2, 24 | hatred, because in hatred they finished their lives." ~ 183 2, 25 | measure of love, with which they have come to Me, is it measured 184 2, 25 | measured to them. Because they have lived in love of Me 185 2, 25 | from the same love. And they rejoice and exult, participating 186 2, 25 | the universal good that they enjoy altogether. And they 187 2, 25 | they enjoy altogether. And they rejoice and exult with the 188 2, 25 | with the angels with whom they are placed, according to 189 2, 25 | in the bonds of love. And they have a special participation 190 2, 25 | participation with those whom they closely loved with particular 191 2, 25 | world, with which affection they grew in grace, increasing 192 2, 25 | in the life everlasting, they have not lost their love, 193 2, 25 | that you should think that they have this particular good, 194 2, 25 | because it is full, but they have an exultation, a mirthfulness, 195 2, 25 | refreshed by the knowledge that they have found in that soul. 196 2, 25 | have found in that soul. They see that, by My mercy, she 197 2, 25 | of grace, and therefore they exult in Me in the good 198 2, 25 | the love of the neighbor, they have not left it behind, 199 2, 25 | it behind, but, with it, they will pass through the Door, 200 2, 25 | those bonds of love in which they finished their life, they 201 2, 25 | they finished their life, they go on and remain eternally. 202 2, 25 | on and remain eternally. They are conformed so entirely 203 2, 25 | entirely to My will, that they cannot desire except what 204 2, 25 | dying in a state of grace, they cannot sin any more. And 205 2, 25 | Wherefore in nothing do they disagree with Me, and their 206 2, 25 | their desire for My honor, they desire your salvation, and 207 2, 25 | do not resist My mercy. They have a desire too, to regain 208 2, 25 | does not afflict them, as they do not actually feel it, 209 2, 25 | not actually feel it, but they rejoice in tasting the desire, 210 2, 25 | desire, from the certainty they feel of having it fulfilled. 211 2, 25 | afflict them, because, though they have it not yet fulfilled, 212 2, 25 | lacking to them. Wherefore they feel not the pain of desire. 213 2, 25 | would follow that, until they had the body, they had imperfect 214 2, 25 | until they had the body, they had imperfect bliss, which 215 2, 25 | Blessed. Oh, how much delight they have in seeing Me, who am 216 2, 25 | good! Oh, how much delight they will have in being with 217 2, 25 | to the general Judgment, they have not, on that account, 218 2, 25 | your resurrection. There, they exult in His wounds, which 219 2, 25 | and Eternal Father. And they are all conformed with Him, 220 2, 25 | them eternally. Not that they can work any good, but they 221 2, 25 | they can work any good, but they rejoice and delight in that 222 2, 25 | delight in that good which they have brought with them, 223 2, 25 | brought with them, that is, they cannot do any meritorious 224 2, 25 | meritorious act, by which they could merit anything, because 225 2, 25 | because in this life alone can they merit and sin, according 226 2, 25 | merit and sin, according as they please, with free-will. ~ 227 2, 25 | full of hatred, because they finished their lives in 228 2, 26 | increases their pain. With pain they await the Last Day of Judgment, 229 2, 26 | Day of Judgment, because they see, following it, an increase 230 2, 26 | outside, which is the body. They will be reproached by the 231 2, 26 | means of My Son, and which they should have done for their 232 2, 26 | contained in the Holy Gospel. They will be reproved for their 233 2, 26 | filthiness and avarice; and when they see the mercy that they 234 2, 26 | they see the mercy that they have received from Me, their 235 2, 26 | rewarding them for the toils they bore for Me, together with 236 2, 26 | the depths of Hell. And they will see generosity and 237 2, 26 | the Lamb, the pains that they have borne remaining as 238 2, 26 | great a dignity (of which they are deprived), will increase, 239 2, 26 | the sign of the wickedness they have committed, with pain 240 2, 26 | pain and torture. And when they hear that terrible speech, ' 241 2, 26 | ways. Thus miserably do they arrive at their end who 242 2, 26 | their sins and My Mercy. And they arrive at the Gate of the 243 2, 26 | Gate of the Lie, because they follow the doctrine of the 244 2, 26 | their Door, through which they go to Eternal Damnation, 245 2, 26 | and the Way through which they pass to enter the Sea Pacific. 246 2, 26 | the Devil calls them, and they are as blind and mad, and 247 2, 26 | not perceive it, because they have lost the light of faith. 248 2, 27 | to be conquered, but that they may conquer, proving their 249 2, 27 | at the moment of death, they, having passed their life 250 2, 27 | lordship of the Devil (not that they were forced to do so, for 251 2, 27 | do so, for as I told you they cannot be forced, but they 252 2, 27 | they cannot be forced, but they voluntarily put themselves 253 2, 27 | this perverse lordship, they await no other judgment 254 2, 27 | extremity of death, and before they get there, they take hold 255 2, 27 | and before they get there, they take hold of it, by means 256 2, 27 | charity and died in love, if they have lived perfectly in 257 2, 27 | and Eternal Good. And so they taste eternal life before 258 2, 27 | taste eternal life before they have left the mortal body, 259 2, 27 | imperfect, for, because they were imperfect, they constrained 260 2, 27 | because they were imperfect, they constrained My mercy, counting 261 2, 27 | desperation, their destination, they embrace it with hatred, 262 2, 27 | in departing this life, they receive every one their 263 2, 27 | as I have told you, and they taste it and possess it 264 2, 27 | it and possess it before they depart from the body, at 265 2, 27 | for, wishing to fly pains, they fall into them; and of the 266 2, 27 | could he catch them, for they would not allow themselves 267 2, 27 | themselves to be caught if they saw that no good or pleasure 268 2, 27 | Now I want to show you how they deceive themselves, and 269 2, 27 | wishing to flee troubles, they fall into them. For, because 270 2, 27 | My Son, is great toil, they draw back, fearing the thorn. 271 2, 27 | the thorn. This is because they are blinded and do not know 272 2, 27 | anything without Me. But they, as if blinded by the fog 273 2, 27 | themselves. You see how deceived they are, choosing rather to 274 2, 27 | pass a little thorn. And they cannot escape enduring pain, 275 2, 27 | I have shown you how they are deceived by a disordinate 276 2, 28 | thorns, who those are whom they do not harm; although no 277 2, 28 | sin, do harm, and to whom they do not. And as, so far, 278 2, 28 | goodness, and have told you how they are deceived by their own 279 2, 28 | tell you how it is only they themselves who are injured 280 2, 28 | minds are free, that is, they do not feel the weariness 281 2, 28 | desire filled with what they desire; wherefore desiring 282 2, 28 | wherefore desiring Me, they have Me, and taste Me without 283 2, 28 | without any revolt, for they have left the burden of 284 2, 28 | their will is fulfilled, for they have that which they desired 285 2, 28 | for they have that which they desired to have, and so 286 2, 28 | desired to have, and so are they satisfied. Wherefore I told 287 2, 28 | you. In this life then, they taste the earnest money 288 2, 28 | with which I have told you they will be satisfied. ~ 289 2, 28 | But how have they the earnest money in this 290 2, 28 | present life? I reply to you, they have it in seeing My goodness 291 2, 28 | you see, that in seeing they know, and in knowing they 292 2, 28 | they know, and in knowing they love, and in loving they 293 2, 28 | they love, and in loving they deny and lose their self-will. 294 2, 28 | self-will. Their own will lost, they clothe themselves in Mine, 295 2, 28 | sanctification. At once they set to, turning their back 296 2, 28 | neither is there any pain. They bear everything with reverence, 297 2, 28 | tribulation for My sake, and they desire nothing but what 298 2, 28 | virtue, as I told you above, they resist with their will fortified 299 2, 28 | deserving of pain, and so they proceed with cheerfulness 300 2, 28 | after sin) come upon them, they endure them all with the 301 2, 28 | not through hatred. And they that love Me recognize this, 302 2, 28 | and, examining themselves, they see their sins, and understand 303 2, 28 | rewarded and evil punished. And they see that every little sin 304 2, 28 | Infinite Good, wherefore they deem themselves favored 305 2, 28 | and in this finite time; they drive away sin with contrition 306 2, 28 | with perfect patience do they merit, and their labors 307 2, 28 | infinite good. Hereafter they know that all labor in this 308 2, 28 | that the labor is small. They endure with patience, and 309 2, 28 | patience, and the thorns they pass through do not touch 310 2, 28 | this life, and that, though they walk on thorns, they are 311 2, 28 | though they walk on thorns, they are not pricked, because 312 2, 28 | because as I told you, they have known My Supreme Goodness, 313 2, 29 | scandalized at her, because they had heard of the sweet goodness 314 2, 30 | to tell you what method they who want to come out of 315 2, 30 | I showed you the methods they should use; nevertheless, 316 2, 30 | The virtues conceived, they give birth to themselves 317 2, 30 | and delights there where they are not. ~ 318 2, 31 | perseverance is needful -- they are vice and virtue. If 319 2, 31 | is with perseverance that they who want life arrive at 320 2, 31 | and with perseverance that they who taste the water of death 321 2, 33 | with impatience, because they are full of Me, who am every 322 2, 35 | said, "Do you see those? They have arisen with servile 323 2, 35 | vomit of mortal sin, but, if they do not arise with love of 324 2, 35 | Me to Moses, by which law they who committed sin suffered 325 2, 36 | if, with hatred of sin, they employ their minds to dig 326 2, 36 | constancy, and perseverance they will succeed in doing so. 327 2, 36 | negligence and ignorance, that they suddenly faint, and every 328 2, 36 | backwards. Wherefore, because they imperfectly climb to the 329 2, 36 | Bridge of Christ crucified, they do not arrive at the second 330 2, 37 | This very love, however, if they serve Me with a view to 331 2, 37 | delight and pleasure which they find in Me, is imperfect. 332 2, 37 | of the consolations which they found in Me, and the insufficiency 333 2, 37 | perfect self-knowledge, they may know that of themselves 334 2, 37 | know that of themselves they are nothing and have no 335 2, 37 | not profit me. All this they do, because they feel themselves 336 2, 37 | All this they do, because they feel themselves deprived 337 2, 37 | only-begotten Son, in which they are washed from their iniquities. 338 2, 37 | iniquities. By this Blood they are enabled to know My Truth, 339 2, 37 | of adoption. But, since they are imperfect, they make 340 2, 37 | since they are imperfect, they make use of Me only for 341 2, 37 | those in the second, because they slacken their pace, ceasing 342 2, 37 | withdrawing their charity if they see their own profit or 343 2, 37 | was originally impure, for they gave to their neighbor the 344 2, 37 | same imperfect love which they gave to Me, that is to say, 345 2, 37 | a desire for perfection, they do not recognize this imperfection 346 2, 37 | theirs, it is impossible that they should not turn back. For 347 2, 37 | increase their virtues, they will arrive at the state 348 2, 37 | the same love, with which they love Me, so that, if they 349 2, 37 | they love Me, so that, if they love Me, as a servant does 350 2, 37 | I have spoken, but while they remain in the state of mercenary 351 2, 37 | manifest Myself to them. If they, through displeasure at 352 2, 37 | light of the holy faith, they will be so pleasing to Me, 353 2, 37 | so pleasing to Me, that they will attain to the love 354 2, 37 | dear friends, for though they are two in body, yet they 355 2, 37 | they are two in body, yet they are one in soul through 356 2, 38 | and diverse benefits which they receive from Me. The second 357 2, 38 | sentiment of the soul, by which they taste, know, prove, and 358 2, 38 | however, is in men themselves; they manifesting Me, through 359 2, 40 | now I will show you how they signify the three states, 360 2, 40 | Truth had promised them. They remained barred in from 361 2, 40 | arrives at true love. But when they had persevered in fasting 362 2, 40 | continual prayer, until they had received the abundance 363 2, 40 | abundance of the Holy Spirit, they lost their fear, and followed 364 2, 41 | know this well, for, if they have received My love sincerely 365 2, 41 | self-regarding considerations, they satisfy the thirst of their 366 3, 2 | doctrine of My Truth, lest they should faint through weakness. 367 3, 2 | and the disciples, while they remained in watching and 368 3, 2 | many paternosters. And when they have once completed their 369 3, 2 | completed their appointed tale, they do not appear to think of 370 3, 2 | does not seem to all that they are called to mental prayer, 371 3, 2 | penalty of offending Me, for, they must, until death, say their 372 3, 2 | say their office. But if they, at the hour appointed for 373 3, 2 | drawn and raised by desire, they should so arrange as to 374 3, 2 | sacramentally; that is, they communicate in the affection 375 3, 2 | affection of charity, which they taste by means of holy prayer, 376 3, 2 | the affection with which they pray. They who proceed with 377 3, 2 | affection with which they pray. They who proceed with little 378 3, 2 | method, taste little, and they who proceed with much, taste 379 3, 2 | contemplative life is one, so are they. Although vocal or mental 380 3, 4 | the holy disciples after they had received the Holy Spirit, 381 3, 4 | received the Holy Spirit, when they came forth from the house, 382 3, 4 | rather glorying therein. They did not mind going before 383 3, 4 | perfect state, in which they taste charity and give birth 384 3, 4 | to it on their neighbors, they have arrived at the fourth 385 3, 5 | How they who are imperfect desire 386 3, 5 | follow the Father alone, but they who are perfect desire to 387 3, 5 | house, which is a sign that they have arisen from imperfection 388 3, 5 | rule, way, and doctrine. They place none other before 389 3, 5 | crucified, not the Father, as they do who are in imperfect 390 3, 5 | to have the delight which they find in Me. But they, as 391 3, 5 | which they find in Me. But they, as if drunken with love 392 3, 5 | through My Blood, even if they have not been able to have 393 3, 6 | and praise to GOD, whether they will or no. ~ 394 3, 6 | worldly people will or no, they render glory and praise 395 3, 6 | praise to My Name, not that they do so in the way they should, 396 3, 6 | that they do so in the way they should, loving Me above 397 3, 6 | mercy and charity shine, and they render praise and glory 398 3, 6 | glory to My Name, even when they persecute My servants; for 399 3, 6 | persecute My servants; for they prove in them the virtues 400 3, 6 | So that, whether they will or no, worldly people 401 3, 6 | praise and glory, even when they intend to do Me infamy and 402 3, 7 | to reach Me, their End. They augment in them the virtues 403 3, 7 | to deprive My servants, they fortify them, proving in 404 3, 7 | and perseverance. Thus they render praise and glory 405 3, 7 | Eternal Father, and that they might participate in My 406 3, 7 | against Me in their pride, they fell and lost their vision 407 3, 7 | vision of Me, wherefore they rendered not to Me glory 408 3, 7 | fulfilled in them, that is, that they render Me glory, not as 409 3, 7 | of life eternal, of which they are deprived by their sins, 410 3, 8 | the love of the neighbor, they pass through the Narrow 411 3, 8 | of Christ crucified, and they find themselves in Me, the 412 3, 9 | loosened from the body, as they do, who have reached the 413 3, 10 | but becomes one with Mine, they cannot desire other than 414 3, 10 | what I desire, and though they desire to come and be with 415 3, 10 | to come and be with Me, they are contented to remain, 416 3, 10 | So that in nothing are they in discord with My Will; 417 3, 10 | discord with My Will; but they run their course with ecstatic 418 3, 10 | shame and pains. Inasmuch as they appear to be suffering they 419 3, 10 | they appear to be suffering they are rejoicing, because the 420 3, 10 | relief in the desire which they have for death, for oftentimes 421 3, 10 | patience, as I told you they did, who are in the third 422 3, 10 | in the third state, but they glory, through My Name, 423 3, 10 | In bearing tribulation they find pleasure, and not having 424 3, 10 | pleasure, and not having it they suffer pain, fearing that 425 3, 10 | to them many tribulations they rejoice, seeing themselves 426 3, 10 | have virtue without toil they would not want it. They 427 3, 10 | they would not want it. They would rather delight in 428 3, 10 | Eternal Life. Why? Because they are inflamed and steeped 429 3, 10 | steeped in the Blood, where they find the blaze of My charity, 430 3, 11 | How they, who are arrived at the 431 3, 11 | doctors, and my saints. They were illuminated by My Truth 432 3, 11 | that, though in darkness, they know the Truth. Wherefore 433 3, 11 | science, because in seeing they discerned. It was thus that 434 3, 11 | out the light. Wherefore they understood the Holy Scripture 435 3, 11 | desiring many other books; and they get not to the marrow of 436 3, 11 | the marrow of it, because they have deprived themselves 437 3, 11 | expounded the Scripture; and they are annoyed and murmur, 438 3, 11 | annoyed and murmur, because they find much in it that appears 439 3, 11 | idiotic. And, nevertheless, they appear to be much illuminated 440 3, 11 | knowledge of Scripture, as if they had studied it for long; 441 3, 11 | not remarkable, because they have of course the natural 442 3, 11 | proceeds science. But because they have lost the supernatural 443 3, 11 | light, infused by grace, they neither see nor know My 444 3, 11 | with My servants, because they offer the light that is 445 3, 11 | other, and, with this light, they both arrive at the Eternal 446 3, 11 | Eternal Vision of Me, where they see and taste Me, in Truth, 447 3, 11 | have done so. Therefore do they taste life eternal, deprived 448 3, 12 | ignorance of creatures, in that they did not know their Benefactor, 449 3, 12 | kinds of tears, and how they came to be, and whence they 450 3, 12 | they came to be, and whence they proceeded, and the fruit 451 3, 14 | proceeding from the heart, they are caused by a disordinate 452 3, 14 | for fear of the penalty they have incurred. ~ 453 3, 14 | belonging to the unitive state; they rather give savor to each 454 3, 14 | not indeed in so far as they are given her by My love, 455 3, 15 | all of which give life if they are disciplined in virtue, 456 3, 15 | of your soul from which they proceed. I have already 457 3, 15 | satisfied, and as soon as they are satisfied hunger again; 458 3, 16 | feels pain, that is, when they are deprived of something 459 3, 16 | deprived of something which they loved. ~ 460 3, 16 | diverse kinds of sin, and if they should produce some good 461 3, 16 | value for eternal life, for they are not done in grace. Let 462 3, 16 | putrid, and so in truth they are. Its flowers are the 463 3, 16 | been given them for death. They condemn and judge everything 464 3, 16 | their weak intellect; for they have blinded the eye of 465 3, 16 | the most holy Faith, which they will not allow to see or 466 3, 16 | always judge well, because they are founded on Me, the Supreme 467 3, 16 | always judge badly, for they are founded on evil. Such 468 3, 16 | to their neighbors. And they think of nothing else but 469 3, 16 | because the heart from which they proceeded was not clean, 470 3, 16 | fruits of wicked deeds. They stand drooping to the earth 471 3, 16 | the world. Do not marvel, they can turn no way but that 472 3, 16 | no way but that in which they can be fed by the earth; 473 3, 16 | unable to satisfy them. They are insatiable and unbearable 474 3, 16 | conformable to their state that they should always be unquiet, 475 3, 16 | desiring that thing which they have to satiety. This is 476 3, 16 | cannot content them, because they (who are infinite in their 477 3, 16 | life to grace ends when they commit mortal sin. ~ 478 3, 17 | concerning which I fear that they are, or may become, stumbling-blocks 479 3, 19 | kinds of perfection; for they may be called perfect who 480 3, 19 | Me, if, that is to say, they act with true knowledge 481 3, 19 | the will of man. But, if they were not thus clothed with 482 3, 19 | Will, in true humility, they would often offend against 483 3, 19 | happen to them? Because they have placed all their labor 484 3, 19 | They say, cheating themselves 485 3, 19 | consolations, and tribulations as they may be needed for your salvation, 486 3, 20 | every condition in which they may be, and receive every 487 3, 20 | to them. And inasmuch as they deem themselves worthy of 488 3, 20 | worthy of trouble, so also do they deem themselves unworthy 489 3, 20 | unworthy of the fruit which they receive after their trouble. 490 3, 20 | receive after their trouble. They have known and tasted in 491 3, 20 | Him manfully. These are they who sit at the table of 492 3, 20 | mortify their own body. They have indeed mortified their 493 3, 20 | one scandalizes them, for they have cut away that thing 494 3, 20 | their feet, standing, as they do, in the waters of many 495 3, 20 | and do not hurt them, for they remain attached to Me by 496 3, 20 | light and holiness, for they have holy minds, and eat 497 3, 20 | servants of the world, and they are never scandalized by 498 3, 20 | to say, in their own case they are content to endure anything 499 3, 20 | is done to some one else, they endure it with compassion 500 3, 20 | take offense from those they love, nor from any rational
