It is therefore true, indeed, 51 1, 2 | tempest of offense against God it lay. And she had understood 52 1, 3 | when he offends; though it is true that both the guilt 53 1, 3 | corporeal, from wherever it may come, receives infinite 54 1, 3 | burned, and have not love, it would be worth nothing to 55 1, 4 | others; and how sometimes it satisfies for the guilt 56 1, 4 | obliged to do so; whence it follows immediately, that 57 1, 4 | follows immediately, that it is right for you, and My 58 1, 4 | fruit of grace, receiving it humbly in greater or less 59 1, 4 | world to show them what it is, so that, feeling its 60 1, 4 | know how little stability it has, and may come to lift 61 1, 4 | lift their desire beyond it, and seek their native country, 62 1, 4 | have trouble, they receive it in the guise of correction, 63 1, 4 | has covered his heart, as it were, with a diamond, which, 64 1, 4 | with a diamond, which, if it be not broken by the Blood, 65 1, 4 | with his own hand apply It to the diamond over his 66 1, 4 | over his heart and shiver it, and he will receive the 67 1, 4 | a man barters and sells it to the devil, the devil, 68 1, 5 | that you should ask, and it will be given you, for I 69 1, 6 | general and particular. It is general because you are 70 1, 6 | such a man does no good, it follows that he must do 71 1, 6 | is more particular when it is done to those who are 72 1, 6 | neighbor; and, by not doing it, he does him, as you see, 73 1, 6 | sensual will. Sometimes it is seen that he brings forth 74 1, 6 | deprive the man who practices it of all mercy, unless he 75 1, 6 | as I have related to you. It is, therefore, indeed the 76 1, 7 | of our neighbor, and how it is that virtues differ to 77 1, 7 | therefore, I said to you, that it was in the neighbor, that 78 1, 7 | own sensuality, crushing it under the heel of reason, 79 1, 7 | recognized My goodness, she loves it without any medium, and 80 1, 7 | And it cannot be otherwise, because 81 1, 7 | no profit, you should do it to your neighbor. This proves 82 1, 7 | and to another, another, it so happens that it is impossible 83 1, 7 | another, it so happens that it is impossible to have one, 84 1, 7 | give one virtue, to be as it were the chief of the others, 85 1, 7 | souls of many creatures; it happens, therefore, that 86 1, 7 | help making an act of love. It is true, however, that that 87 1, 8 | hope through love of Me, it rather fortifies it, and 88 1, 8 | Me, it rather fortifies it, and proves it in the love 89 1, 8 | fortifies it, and proves it in the love he feels for 90 1, 8 | those, who need the proof of it, My servant proves his faith 91 1, 8 | tested by many contrarieties, it would not be a serious virtue 92 2, 1 | ground of humility, in which it is planted, which humility 93 2, 1 | or any fruit of life, if it were not planted in the 94 2, 1 | due to Me, and attributes it to herself, through vainglory, 95 2, 2 | virtues stand together? It is, as if a circle were 96 2, 2 | tree were out of the earth it would die, and give no fruit. 97 2, 2 | existing by love, and that it can live by nothing else 98 2, 2 | life, but only of death. It is necessary then, that 99 2, 2 | you always remain within it. ~ 100 2, 3 | like a word, which, when it has issued from the mouth, 101 2, 3 | mouth, is no more, unless it have issued with affection 102 2, 3 | affection or love, in which case it would be grateful and pleasant 103 2, 3 | principal foundation; for it would not be becoming that 104 2, 3 | finite time, and also because it is often profitable that 105 2, 3 | the order of her director, it is well; since, if she continued 106 2, 3 | macerating the flesh whenever it should wish to combat the 107 2, 3 | but rather indiscreet, for it is not lawful to perform 108 2, 3 | down a thousand times, if it were possible, the life 109 2, 3 | first with self, otherwise it will never be of perfect 110 2, 3 | for others is imperfect. It would not, therefore, be 111 2, 3 | glorious light; knowing, by it, her own fragility, she 112 2, 3 | on the world, and placed it under the feet of her affection, 113 2, 3 | her affection, despising it, and holding it vile, and 114 2, 3 | despising it, and holding it vile, and thus becoming 115 2, 3 | and thus becoming lord of it, holding it as folly. And 116 2, 3 | becoming lord of it, holding it as folly. And the men of 117 2, 3 | shine in the time of trial, it would not have been truly 118 2, 3 | child, if she do not bring it forth, so that it may appear 119 2, 3 | bring it forth, so that it may appear before the eyes 120 2, 3 | of his fame of paternity. It is the same with Me, who 121 2, 4 | her request and to satisfy it, giving hope to the sorrow 122 2, 4 | and, as fire grows when it is fed with wood, so grew 123 2, 4 | soul to such an extent that it was no longer possible for 124 2, 4 | possible for the body to endure it without the departure of 125 2, 4 | is the Supreme Strength, it would not have been possible 126 2, 4 | them mercy. For what is it to me if I have life, and 127 2, 4 | cover Your spouse, when it is my own sins, and not 128 2, 4 | heart can help breaking when it sees such dignity as Yours 129 2, 5 | they feed themselves, but it is also their duty to feed 130 2, 5 | defects of those who receive it, death; that is to say, 131 2, 5 | give this Blood and use It for salvation and perfection 132 2, 5 | himself properly to receive it, for It gives life and adorns 133 2, 5 | properly to receive it, for It gives life and adorns the 134 2, 5 | affection of him who receives It; similarly It gives death 135 2, 5 | who receives It; similarly It gives death to him who receives 136 2, 5 | death to him who receives It unworthily, living in iniquity 137 2, 5 | mortal sin; to him, I say, It gives death and not life; 138 2, 5 | harm to him who receives it unworthily, not through 139 2, 5 | generation, in order to restore it to grace which you had lost 140 2, 5 | not sufficient to satisfy it, for, even if he had satisfied 141 2, 5 | account of the pain which it sustained in its finite 142 2, 5 | infinite nature joined to it. The two natures being thus 143 2, 5 | s sin, only the mark of it remaining behind, that is 144 2, 5 | soul can keep the bridle on it if she choose. Then the 145 2, 5 | more or less, according as it pleases her to dispose herself 146 2, 5 | good or evil, according as it pleases her will; and so 147 2, 6 | sin had been taken away. It is right that he who receives 148 2, 6 | glory, but he deprived Me of it, and wished to give it to 149 2, 6 | of it, and wished to give it to himself. Thus he came 150 2, 6 | above, and if they do not do it, the greater their debt, 151 2, 6 | for death and cannot have it, for they cannot lose their 152 2, 8 | this Bridge, inasmuch as it reaches from earth to Heaven. ~ 153 2, 8 | the greatness thereof, for it reaches from Heaven to earth, 154 2, 8 | have said to you above. It was, therefore, necessary 155 2, 8 | the Eternal Deity, so that it might be sufficient to satisfy 156 2, 8 | angels. And observe, that it is not enough, in order 157 2, 9 | breaking at such tenderness? It seems, oh, Abyss of Charity, 158 2, 9 | hunger and the desire which it has conceived towards You. 159 2, 9 | those who do not; should it please Your goodness to 160 2, 9 | willingly would I see and hear it." ~ 161 2, 10 | being lifted on high, yet it is not separated from the 162 2, 10 | the intellect, and finds It consumed with ineffable 163 2, 10 | running beneath, may not touch it; for, in My Son, was no 164 2, 10 | earth. Do you know when it was lifted on high? When 165 2, 10 | kneaded into one thing with it. And there was no one who 166 2, 10 | could go on the Bridge until It had been lifted on high, 167 2, 10 | of the Cross, making of it an anvil on which My Son, 168 2, 10 | of love, as I have said, it is drawn together with all 169 2, 10 | else has been made for him. It was therefore necessary 170 2, 10 | have steps, in order that it might be climbed with greater 171 2, 11 | while he who goes under It goes to perdition and death. ~ 172 2, 11 | that, if the rain come, it may not impede the traveler. 173 2, 11 | not by Him,' and so indeed it is. Therefore He says of 174 2, 11 | like the river, although it seems to him that he stands 175 2, 12 | delight to those who use It, that every bitterness becomes 176 2, 12 | heard about this Bridge, how it is, and this I have told 177 2, 13 | his inordinate self-love. It is, indeed, the truth that 178 2, 13 | him who wishes to follow it, because it is firm and 179 2, 13 | wishes to follow it, because it is firm and stable, and 180 2, 13 | shown to you the Bridge as it actually is, and the doctrine, 181 2, 13 | and the same thing with it. And I have shown it to 182 2, 13 | with it. And I have shown it to the ignorant, in order 183 2, 13 | where stand those who teach it; and I have explained that 184 2, 13 | Bridge, and not underneath it, because underneath is not 185 2, 14 | Then this soul, as it were, like one intoxicated, 186 2, 14 | If I turn to the earth, it abounds with Your Mercy. 187 2, 14 | Oh, Loving Madman! was it not enough for You to become 188 2, 15 | My mercy, because I gave it you to taste and to see 189 2, 15 | minds, for they then bring it forth, and lose the life 190 2, 15 | of itself, but only when it is moved and lifted by others, 191 2, 15 | intellect has no object before it but themselves, with the 192 2, 15 | dead to My will because it loves nothing but dead things. 193 2, 15 | as she is helped by Me. It is true indeed, that every 194 2, 15 | asks My help, he can have it, but never can he help himself; 195 2, 16 | does any sin, abominable as it may be, take away the light 196 2, 16 | grace, because they had it not, but because nature 197 2, 17 | evils that proceed from it. ~ 198 2, 17 | My mercy, for if they had it they would not be cruel 199 2, 17 | of heart and injustice! It kills the soul and makes 200 2, 17 | goes on from bad to worse. It is a fire which always germinates 201 2, 17 | which does not belong to it. It is a root which has 202 2, 17 | which does not belong to it. It is a root which has many 203 2, 17 | greater than his neighbor. It also brings forth the deceitful 204 2, 17 | for his own profit. And it produces envy, which is 205 2, 17 | when they themselves put it there? Sometimes even do 206 2, 18 | steal what is Mine, and give it to the service of their 207 2, 18 | among you.' But they knew it not, because, in the aforesaid 208 2, 19 | human generation in that it considers not its own dignity! 209 2, 19 | then, have become nothing; it has deprived you of life, 210 2, 19 | Blood, and have trampled It under the feet of their 211 2, 19 | disordinate affection; and it is for this injustice and 212 2, 19 | and false judgment.' And it was reproved when I sent 213 2, 20 | upon the disciples, who, as it is said, being fortified 214 2, 21 | of Hell that follows upon it, but on account of pain 215 2, 21 | contrition of heart, and offer it to Me, for the offense they 216 2, 22 | pain to them, that, were it possible, they would rather 217 2, 22 | of man could not imagine it. And if you remember well, 218 2, 22 | cannot be consumed, because it is not a material thing 219 2, 22 | them with torments, so that it torments them, without consuming 220 2, 23 | Now it remains to tell of the third 221 2, 23 | which will generate in it confusion and shame. Know 222 2, 23 | the tongue cannot describe it. To the just it will cause 223 2, 23 | describe it. To the just it will cause the fear of reverence 224 2, 23 | was unchangeable, after it took the glory of the Resurrection. 225 2, 23 | to the eye of the damned, it will appear such, on account 226 2, 23 | the healthy eye light (and it is not the defect of the 227 2, 23 | of the light that makes it appear other to the blind 228 2, 24 | But why then did he do it? He did it because he was 229 2, 24 | then did he do it? He did it because he was the eldest, 230 2, 25 | they have come to Me, is it measured to them. Because 231 2, 25 | lost their love, but have it still, participating closely, 232 2, 25 | for themselves alone, for it is not so, but it is shared 233 2, 25 | alone, for it is not so, but it is shared by all the proved 234 2, 25 | that there be need to fill it, because it is full, but 235 2, 25 | need to fill it, because it is full, but they have an 236 2, 25 | neighbor, they have not left it behind, but, with it, they 237 2, 25 | left it behind, but, with it, they will pass through 238 2, 25 | they do not actually feel it, but they rejoice in tasting 239 2, 25 | certainty they feel of having it fulfilled. Their desire 240 2, 25 | because, though they have it not yet fulfilled, no bliss 241 2, 25 | soul, for, if this were so, it would follow that, until 242 2, 25 | perfection is lacking to them. So it is not the body that gives 243 2, 25 | water nor fire can injure it, not by virtue of itself, 244 2, 26 | because they see, following it, an increase of pain to 245 2, 26 | themselves. And so will it be, because when that terrible 246 2, 26 | fruit of its labor, because it was the companion of the 247 2, 26 | to enter the Sea Pacific. It is the contrary for those 248 2, 26 | the water of death. And it is to this that the Devil 249 2, 26 | mad, and do not perceive it, because they have lost 250 2, 26 | faith. The Devil says, as it were, to them: 'Whosoever 251 2, 26 | him come and I will give it to him.'" ~ 252 2, 27 | creature can move, because it is yours, given by Me. You 253 2, 27 | free arbitration, can hold it or leave it, according as 254 2, 27 | arbitration, can hold it or leave it, according as you please. 255 2, 27 | according as you please. It is an arm, which, if you 256 2, 27 | arm, which, if you place it in the hands of the Devil, 257 2, 27 | will even be fortified by it, when the eye of his intellect 258 2, 27 | by My goodness, so that it does not yield to these 259 2, 27 | virtue may be proved, for it is not proved except by 260 2, 27 | virtue in the soul. Not that it is the intention of the 261 2, 27 | rather to deprive you of it, and this he cannot do, 262 2, 27 | cannot do, if you do not wish it. Now you see, then, how 263 2, 27 | there, they take hold of it, by means of their lord 264 2, 27 | prepared for them, and embrace it with the arms of love, holding 265 2, 27 | perfect ones, but, in them, it is imperfect, for, because 266 2, 27 | destination, they embrace it with hatred, as I told you. 267 2, 27 | told you, and they taste it and possess it before they 268 2, 27 | they taste it and possess it before they depart from 269 2, 27 | always relishes good, though it is true that the soul, blinded 270 2, 27 | into them. For, because it seems to them that following 271 2, 27 | mercy on the world, and draw it out of the darkness of mortal 272 2, 27 | Which deliberation, before it is made, is a thorn which 273 2, 27 | and I have shown them what it is to love anything without 274 2, 28 | now I wish to tell you how it is only they themselves 275 2, 28 | accorded with Mine, and it is the will that gives trouble 276 2, 28 | good of the blessed ones? It is having their desire filled 277 2, 28 | spirit, and came between it and the perfect knowledge 278 2, 28 | of the Truth, preventing it from seeing Me face to face. 279 2, 28 | from the satisfaction of it. So you see that My servants 280 2, 28 | reply to you, they have it in seeing My goodness in 281 2, 28 | if the soul has covered it with the cloth of infidelity, 282 2, 28 | of infidelity, drawn over it by self-love, she does not 283 2, 28 | because she has hidden it. Thus you see, that in seeing 284 2, 28 | merits infinite pain, because it is against Me, who am Infinite 285 2, 28 | by the affection of love. It is a good truth then that 286 2, 28 | receiving the earnest money of it in this life, and that, 287 2, 28 | Goodness, and sought for it where it was to be found, 288 2, 28 | and sought for it where it was to be found, that is 289 2, 29 | creatures. I would that, when it is pleasing to Your Goodness, 290 2, 30 | nevertheless, now I will declare it to you more fully, satisfying 291 2, 30 | affection, and nourishes it, and the hand of love -- 292 2, 30 | benefits received, which it does with care and gratitude, 293 2, 30 | the intellect, saying, as it were, 'I will love, because 294 2, 30 | the affection, says, as it were, 'If you will love, 295 2, 30 | you can love.' And at once it arises, considering carefully 296 2, 30 | the dignity of her being it tastes My inestimable goodness, 297 2, 30 | contemplating her misery, it discovers and tastes My 298 2, 30 | holy desire, with which it eats hatred and displeasure 299 2, 30 | perfect patience, which it drew from holy hatred. The 300 2, 30 | the affection presents to it. This love so dazzles the 301 2, 30 | eye of the intellect that it can discern and see nothing 302 2, 30 | such glittering objects. It is the very brightness of 303 2, 30 | and knows not the truth, it errs, seeking good and delights 304 2, 30 | bound to the affection, and it moves as it pleases, either 305 2, 30 | affection, and it moves as it pleases, either with the 306 2, 30 | light of reason or without it. Your reason is attached 307 2, 30 | by disordinate love, cut it off from Me; you have also 308 2, 30 | choice agrees with the will, it becomes one thing with it. 309 2, 30 | it becomes one thing with it. And I tell you truly, that, 310 2, 31 | persevere in vice. Thus it is with perseverance that 311 2, 32 | Living Water of Grace, and it is right for you, with perseverance, 312 2, 33 | persecution, for he loves it not. He is afraid because 313 2, 33 | yourselves together, as it is said, 'two or three or 314 2, 33 | Why is it said 'two or three or more'? 315 2, 33 | three without two, and so it is. You know that the commandments 316 2, 33 | resounds, but not so when it is full. So memory, being 317 2, 33 | but filled immediately it is emptied with other things, 318 2, 33 | love for transitory things, it is filled with love of celestial 319 2, 35 | suffered the penalty of it. The new law is the law 320 2, 35 | law, but rather fulfills it, as said My Truth, 'I come 321 2, 35 | the law, but to fulfill it.' And He united the law 322 2, 37 | self-love, for, had she unwound it she would see that, in truth, 323 2, 37 | imperfection of theirs, it is impossible that they 324 2, 37 | themselves, is necessary, for it is not enough for eternal 325 2, 37 | should be abandoned because it is displeasing to Me, and 326 2, 37 | should be loved for My sake. It is true that, generally 327 2, 37 | irrespectively of herself. It was with this imperfect 328 2, 37 | and not to a servant. Yet it is true, that a servant 329 2, 38 | the ordinary grace of God. It is manifested to them by 330 2, 38 | taste, know, prove, and feel it. This second manifestation, 331 2, 39 | one thing together. And so it is that I manifest Myself 332 2, 39 | Show us the Father, and it is enough for us.' My Word 333 2, 39 | Invisible, made Myself, as it were, visible by sending 334 2, 39 | manifested Me to you. Therefore it was that He did not say ' 335 2, 40 | mortal sin, recognizing it for what it is, begins to 336 2, 40 | recognizing it for what it is, begins to weep from 337 2, 40 | will return to you;' and so it was, for, when the Holy 338 2, 40 | arrive at perfection, and it is to this end, namely that 339 2, 41 | acquired from Me, so is it manifested by means of the 340 2, 41 | fountain and then drink of it, the vessel becomes empty, 341 2, 41 | fountain, while he drinks, it always remains full. So 342 2, 41 | Me you owe to Me, so that it is not of grace that you 343 2, 41 | must be sincere, because it is with the same love with 344 2, 41 | for the creature is shown? It is shown when the lover 345 2, 41 | the lover feels pain if it appear to him that the object 346 2, 41 | and in many other ways can it be seen that his neighborly 347 2, 41 | in order to drink from it. It is because his love 348 2, 41 | order to drink from it. It is because his love for 349 2, 41 | virtue of His Blood, for it is in virtue of this Blood 350 3, 1 | back for anything, whatever it be, nor rises from holy 351 3, 2 | begotten Son, who showed it to you with His blood! Which 352 3, 2 | crucified, communicating, as it were, sacramentally, with 353 3, 2 | abandon vocal prayer, since it does not seem to all that 354 3, 2 | afterwards perfect, so also is it with her prayer. She should 355 3, 2 | the Devil, who has caused it, under color of contrition 356 3, 2 | hope therein. Wherefore it was, if you remember rightly, 357 3, 2 | from him who will receive it) gave you strength to do, 358 3, 2 | use to the soul who makes it, and pleasing to Me, and 359 3, 2 | she will never arrive at it. Sometimes the soul will 360 3, 2 | visitation, that she feels, as it were, by conscience, rather 361 3, 2 | of course provided that it were not the Divine office 362 3, 2 | hour appointed for saying it, should feel their minds 363 3, 2 | should so arrange as to say it before or after My visitation, 364 3, 2 | therefore she should not abandon it, but use it in the way that 365 3, 2 | not abandon it, but use it in the way that I have told 366 3, 2 | from herself, and fasten it in Me with the light of 367 3, 2 | virtually a prayer, although it does not replace a prayer 368 3, 2 | work ceases not to pray.' It was for this reason that 369 3, 3 | with knowledge of Me, lest it bring the soul to confusion, 370 3, 3 | the soul to confusion, for it would cause the soul to 371 3, 3 | conscience should rise against it, and, with hatred of it, 372 3, 3 | it, and, with hatred of it, hold out reason against 373 3, 3 | hold out reason against it, not allowing such evil 374 3, 3 | evil emotions to get by it. Though sometimes the soul 375 3, 3 | through purity of conscience, it saw sin where there was 376 3, 4 | It now remains to be told you 377 3, 4 | remains to be told you how it can be seen that souls have 378 3, 4 | charity and give birth to it on their neighbors, they 379 3, 5 | with love and burning with it, have gathered together 380 3, 5 | was occasion enough for it; but the principal part 381 3, 5 | secret of the Heart, showing it to you open, so that you 382 3, 5 | finite pain. I poured from it Blood and Water, to show 383 3, 5 | Holy Baptism, but desiring it with the affection of love. 384 3, 5 | because, through love was It shed. There is yet another 385 3, 5 | baptism of Blood, speaking, as it were, under a figure, and 386 3, 5 | in virtue of the Blood, it was necessary to leave a 387 3, 5 | of the Blood, sprinkling It, in absolution, upon the 388 3, 5 | the fruit of the Blood. It is true that, in the last 389 3, 5 | in the hope of receiving it, he puts off confessing 390 3, 5 | to do so. In which case, it is not at all certain that 391 3, 5 | your redemption, because it was terminated and finished 392 3, 5 | and therefore you receive it infinitely. Had it not been 393 3, 5 | receive it infinitely. Had it not been infinite, the whole 394 3, 5 | whomsoever will receive it, and by the baptism of water, 395 3, 5 | in order to show this, it was necessary for the Blood 396 3, 8 | of My Name. Who can see it? The soul who is denuded 397 3, 8 | reached Me, her End, sees it clearly, and, in seeing, 398 3, 8 | so that in nothing can it suffer pain, because it 399 3, 8 | it suffer pain, because it has that which it desired 400 3, 8 | because it has that which it desired to have, before 401 3, 8 | She now, in truth, sees it completely in My saints, 402 3, 8 | before caused her sorrow, it no longer now can give her 403 3, 9 | this feeling and union. But it being pleasing to My Goodness 404 3, 9 | to do? Show me that which it is Your pleasure for me 405 3, 9 | me to do, and I will do it.' Which I answered when 406 3, 10 | pleasure, and not having it they suffer pain, fearing 407 3, 10 | crucified. Wherefore were it possible for them to have 408 3, 10 | toil they would not want it. They would rather delight 409 3, 10 | with Christ, acquiring it with pain, than in any other 410 3, 11 | infused by grace. And how it is better to go for counsel 411 3, 11 | which seemed dark because it was not understood; not 412 3, 11 | in seeing they discerned. It was thus that the holy prophets 413 3, 11 | light according as he needed it for his salvation or that 414 3, 11 | of the holy science had it, expounding the doctrine 415 3, 11 | Evangelists. The martyrs had it, declaring in their blood 416 3, 11 | the Lamb. The virgins had it in the affection of charity 417 3, 11 | obedient ones is declared, by it, the obedience of the Word, 418 3, 11 | Testament; in the Old, by it, were seen by the eye of 419 3, 11 | alone, being taken from it, by the coming of the Word 420 3, 11 | completing the old law by giving it love, and replacing the 421 3, 11 | the law, but to fulfill it.' It is almost as if My 422 3, 11 | law, but to fulfill it.' It is almost as if My Truth 423 3, 11 | with My Blood I will make it perfect, and I will fill 424 3, 11 | perfect, and I will fill it up with what it lacks, taking 425 3, 11 | will fill it up with what it lacks, taking away the fear 426 3, 11 | of penalty, and founding it in love and holy fear. How 427 3, 11 | to all, who will receive it? Every light that comes 428 3, 11 | taste only the letter of it, still desiring many other 429 3, 11 | get not to the marrow of it, because they have deprived 430 3, 11 | because they find much in it that appears to them gross 431 3, 11 | as if they had studied it for long; and this is not 432 3, 11 | Wherefore, I say to you, that it is much better to go for 433 3, 11 | because of his darkness, it may appear to you, that, 434 3, 11 | charity, in which charity it receives the supernatural 435 3, 11 | intellect, and the more it knows the more can it love. 436 3, 11 | more it knows the more can it love. Thus the one feeds 437 3, 11 | be in the body or out of it; and tastes the earnest-money 438 3, 11 | damnation, if he yield to it." ~ 439 3, 12 | request of the Truth. For it is necessary for him who 440 3, 12 | for God Himself manifested it to her, and condescending 441 3, 14 | in pain the eye manifests it. And if the pain be sensual 442 3, 14 | of mortal pain and tears. It is true that their guilt 443 3, 14 | thereby done to Me, abandons it with a hearty grief for 444 3, 14 | removed, as has been said, but it is a spiritual love with 445 3, 14 | them with joy, she counts it glory to be persecuted for 446 3, 14 | that no tongue can tell it. Having crossed the river 447 3, 14 | having seen the Truth, knows it; and knowing it, loves it. 448 3, 14 | Truth, knows it; and knowing it, loves it. Drawing her affection 449 3, 14 | it; and knowing it, loves it. Drawing her affection after 450 3, 14 | state of neighborly love, it would not be perfect. Therefore 451 3, 14 | not be perfect. Therefore it is necessary that the one 452 3, 14 | to the depths. Therefore it is necessary to bear with 453 3, 14 | therefore endeavors to repay it through the medium which 454 3, 14 | you -- before you existed; it was, indeed, love that moved 455 3, 14 | repay to Me, but you can pay it to My rational creature, 456 3, 14 | True indeed is it that this height cannot 457 3, 14 | and final) stage. Nor can it be preserved when it has 458 3, 14 | can it be preserved when it has been reached if the 459 3, 14 | the affection from which it has been developed, the 460 3, 14 | class of tears belongs. It is therefore impossible 461 3, 14 | said to you, which, though it is mortal, appears immortal 462 3, 14 | the soul, for, in tasting it, she sees My secrets! Wherefore 463 3, 15 | on the fire, the moisture it contains groans on account 464 3, 15 | as desire is never ended, it is never satisfied in this 465 3, 15 | fruits of all other virtues. It is true that suffering is 466 3, 15 | desire infinite, otherwise it would be worth nothing, 467 3, 15 | the tears, and consumed it, as happens in the case 468 3, 15 | of the fire has consumed it and drawn it into itself. 469 3, 15 | has consumed it and drawn it into itself. Thus the soul, 470 3, 16 | It remains for Me to tell you 471 3, 16 | in proportion to the love it feels. So worldly men weep 472 3, 16 | everything that grows from it is corrupt also. Self-love 473 3, 16 | mountain of pride, whence it follows that since the root 474 3, 16 | among their actions, even it will be spoiled by the foulness 475 3, 16 | the action which obtains it. Often such a man is rewarded 476 3, 16 | robs Me of honor, and takes it himself. This flower stinks 477 3, 16 | unbearable to themselves, and it is conformable to their 478 3, 17 | deeds.' Nevertheless, if it please Your Goodness to 479 3, 17 | more words on the subject, it will cause me the greatest 480 3, 17 | You; and in another, as it might seem to me, a mind 481 3, 17 | spiritual self-love; for if it were so, I would humbly 482 3, 17 | creatures and servants. For it seems to me that the habit 483 3, 18 | you may the better know it, rise above the feelings 484 3, 18 | though you may have lost it by your own defects. For, 485 3, 18 | True Light, for, without it, you would plunge into darkness. ~ 486 3, 18 | It is necessary for you to 487 3, 18 | creature should be conquered by it, but in order that he should 488 3, 18 | Creator. How does she prove it? When, with anger and displeasure, 489 3, 18 | which I said to you that it was the pupil of the eye. 490 3, 18 | been said, for, without it, the soul would be in a 491 3, 18 | therefore cannot avoid or hate it. ~ 492 3, 18 | hate himself on account of it; he is ignorant of vice 493 3, 18 | of the evil which follows it: he is ignorant of virtue 494 3, 19 | soul through grace; because it seems to me that I should 495 3, 19 | yet she does not perceive it, nor that, within her, lurks 496 3, 20 | Will, clothes herself with it, and fixes her attention 497 3, 20 | her intellect and fixing it in the light of faith upon 498 3, 20 | perfection is, having seen it practiced by the sweet and 499 3, 20 | such hatred of your sins. It was as if the sweet and 500 3, 20 | labor from whatever source it comes, but rather enduring
