See, therefore, 119 2, 8 | look at the greatness of this Bridge, inasmuch as it reaches 120 2, 8 | thereby. I say then that this Bridge reaches from Heaven 121 2, 8 | This was necessary, in order 122 2, 8 | reformed the road. Why was this done? In order that man 123 2, 8 | Son should have made you this Bridge, unless you walk 124 2, 9 | How this soul prays God to show her 125 2, 9 | Then this soul exclaimed with ardent 126 2, 9 | Your goodness to manifest this to me, willingly would I 127 2, 10 | How this Bridge has three steps, 128 2, 10 | explain to you the nature of this Bridge. I have told you, 129 2, 10 | reaches from Heaven to earth; this is through the union which 130 2, 10 | the earth. Now learn that this Bridge, My only-begotten 131 2, 10 | Son, was no venom of sin. This Bridge is lifted on high, 132 2, 10 | For this reason I said to you that, 133 2, 10 | everything to Himself by this means, namely, by showing 134 2, 10 | then, My Son was treated in this way by love, in order that 135 2, 10 | draw all things to Him. And this is to be understood in two 136 2, 11 | How this Bridge is built of stones 137 2, 11 | This Bridge is built of stones, 138 2, 11 | Heaven in the Incarnation of this My Son. How was Heaven opened? 139 2, 11 | faint by the way; and for this reason My love has ordained 140 2, 11 | that He is the Road, and this is the truth, and I have 141 2, 11 | because he who follows this Truth receives the life 142 2, 11 | Wherefore, those who follow this road are the sons of the 143 2, 11 | But he, who walks not on this road, goes under the Bridge, 144 2, 12 | felt by him who goes on this road, for, even in this 145 2, 12 | this road, for, even in this life, he tastes and participates 146 2, 12 | chooses rather to receive in this life, the earnest money 147 2, 12 | have seen and heard about this Bridge, how it is, and this 148 2, 12 | this Bridge, how it is, and this I have told you in order 149 2, 13 | How this Bridge, having reached to 150 2, 13 | after the resurrection, this Bridge, namely Himself, 151 2, 13 | the stones founded upon this doctrine, which is the way 152 2, 13 | the way made for you by this Bridge. For first, He practiced 153 2, 13 | For first, He practiced this doctrine and made the road 154 2, 13 | the truth, and to announce this road, that is, the doctrine 155 2, 13 | crucified, reproving, by this means, the world of its 156 2, 13 | This much I have said to you 157 2, 13 | that they may know that of this Body of Christ I made a 158 2, 13 | with the human nature, for this is the truth. ~ 159 2, 13 | This Bridge, taking its point 160 2, 13 | has now remained of all this, and where is the road to 161 2, 13 | might fall into ignorance on this point. I tell you that this 162 2, 13 | this point. I tell you that this way of His doctrine, of 163 2, 13 | clemency of the Holy Spirit. This power of Mine gives the 164 2, 13 | fortitude to whoever follows this road, wisdom gives him light, 165 2, 13 | gives him light, so that, in this road, he may recognize the 166 2, 13 | to the height of Heaven. This is what He meant when He 167 2, 13 | then, should you follow this road, without any cloud 168 2, 13 | that they may see where this road of Truth is, and where 169 2, 14 | How this soul wondering at the mercy 170 2, 14 | Then this soul, as it were, like one 171 2, 14 | not wonder that You say this to those who are converted, 172 2, 14 | Holy Church. What has done this? Your Mercy. Oh, Divine 173 2, 15 | After this soul had refreshed a little 174 2, 15 | wished that you should taste this mercy, and also the dignity 175 2, 15 | have first become weak, and this was when they conceived 176 2, 15 | indeed, that every time that this corpse, in whom only free-will 177 2, 15 | to you. Do you know how this tree finds such roots? In 178 2, 15 | but little; the fruits of this tree are mortal, for they 179 2, 16 | How the fruits of this tree are as diverse as are 180 2, 16 | The fruits of this death-giving tree, are as 181 2, 16 | from man, so much as does this one. This the philosophers 182 2, 16 | so much as does this one. This the philosophers knew, not 183 2, 16 | them the light to know that this sin obscured the intellect, 184 2, 17 | are the evils that come of this cursed sin of avarice, how 185 2, 17 | many and diverse sins. And this she does because she does 186 2, 19 | through love and mercy. With this false judgment, and with 187 2, 19 | lies did His enemies say: 'This man works by virtue of Beelzebub.' 188 2, 19 | life, and given you death. This life and power were given 189 2, 19 | affection; and it is for this injustice and false judgment 190 2, 19 | This was meant by My Truth when 191 2, 20 | This is that continuous reproof 192 2, 20 | through the river in iniquity. This is that sweet reproof that 193 2, 20 | and love of virtue, and this truth has not been shown 194 2, 20 | the others who followed this Word? Mortal creatures, 195 2, 21 | This second reproof, dearest 196 2, 21 | misery greater than My mercy. This is that sin which is neither 197 2, 21 | depreciating My mercy. Therefore is this last sin graver to Me than 198 2, 21 | that they are reproved of this false judgment, which is 199 2, 22 | This first pain revives in them, 200 2, 22 | and more, and the fire of this Conscience never ceases 201 2, 22 | see him again. With all this that you have seen, even 202 2, 22 | that they have is the fire. This fire burns and does not 203 2, 24 | tell them of his pains. This, certainly, he did not do 204 2, 25 | should think that they have this particular good, of which 205 2, 25 | gifts of their body, but this desire does not afflict 206 2, 25 | bliss to the soul, for, if this were so, it would follow 207 2, 25 | body will participate in this bliss. ~ 208 2, 25 | love, and therefore will this delight endure for them 209 2, 25 | merit anything, because in this life alone can they merit 210 2, 26 | misery of the damned. For this is another of their pains, 211 2, 26 | purity of My Deity, and of this mass of their Adam nature 212 2, 26 | the Father of Lies; and this Devil is their Door, through 213 2, 26 | follow the Way of Truth, and this Truth is the Door, and therefore 214 2, 26 | water of death. And it is to this that the Devil calls them, 215 2, 27 | Me. And I have set him in this life to tempt and molest 216 2, 27 | But if man do not give this knife of his will into the 217 2, 27 | the damned in Hell, and in this life, to exercise and prove 218 2, 27 | to deprive you of it, and this he cannot do, if you do 219 2, 27 | extremity of their death under this perverse lordship, they 220 2, 27 | judgment, but, in departing this life, they receive every 221 2, 27 | the vision of a tree, that this soul once had. ~ 222 2, 27 | conditions. I have told you this, because I now speak to 223 2, 27 | back, fearing the thorn. This is because they are blinded 224 2, 27 | no one can pass through this life without a cross, far 225 2, 27 | tribulations, and because this river flows with tempestuous 226 2, 27 | but of holy desire. And this I have shown you under the 227 2, 28 | although no one passes this life without pain. ~ 228 2, 28 | thorns. No one born passes this life without pain, bodily 229 2, 28 | narrated to you, who, in this life, taste the earnest 230 2, 28 | as I have told you. In this life then, they taste the 231 2, 28 | they the earnest money in this present life? I reply to 232 2, 28 | illuminated in Me, possesses. This eye has the pupil of the 233 2, 28 | Word Incarnate; and without this pupil of faith she would 234 2, 28 | they that love Me recognize this, and, examining themselves, 235 2, 28 | I wish to punish them in this life, and in this finite 236 2, 28 | them in this life, and in this finite time; they drive 237 2, 28 | they know that all labor in this life is small, on account 238 2, 28 | the earnest money of it in this life, and that, though they 239 2, 29 | How this soul was in great bitterness, 240 2, 29 | having placed nothing in this life, no matter in what 241 2, 29 | And, notwithstanding all this, she saw them, through self-love 242 2, 29 | Himself to her. And, for this, she was in bitterness, 243 2, 30 | blindness of men, tasting in this life the earnest-money of 244 2, 30 | affection presents to it. This love so dazzles the eye 245 2, 30 | pleasure of the free will. This free will is bound to the 246 2, 30 | her free choice, and when this free choice agrees with 247 2, 30 | in the midst of them; and this is what My truth, the Word 248 2, 30 | the midst of them.' And this is the truth. I have already 249 2, 32 | pilgrims and wayfarers in this mortal life, cannot be without 250 2, 32 | Water of Life, by means of this sweet and amorous Word, 251 2, 32 | Because you cannot pass this mortal life without pain, 252 2, 33 | the midst of you. For in this way, in which you should 253 2, 33 | cannot be in the midst; this is no indifferent trifle, 254 2, 34 | How this devoted soul looking in 255 2, 34 | she saw others, practicing this first state, arriving at 256 2, 35 | need for servile fear; and this does not mean that sin is 257 2, 35 | person punish himself in this life with perfect contrition. 258 2, 36 | fault. And let us consider this to be the first step and 259 2, 37 | punishment, but rather with love. This very love, however, if they 260 2, 37 | proves the imperfection of this love? The withdrawal of 261 2, 37 | battles and perplexities. This I do so that, coming to 262 2, 37 | exercises, saying to themselves, This labor does not profit me. 263 2, 37 | does not profit me. All this they do, because they feel 264 2, 37 | from their iniquities. By this Blood they are enabled to 265 2, 37 | consolation withdrawn from them: this happens because their love 266 2, 37 | perfection, they do not recognize this imperfection of theirs, 267 2, 37 | person is first called in this way, but this is because 268 2, 37 | called in this way, but this is because the soul herself 269 2, 37 | of herself. It was with this imperfect love that S. Peter 270 2, 37 | The soul who has climbed this step with servile fear and 271 2, 37 | we will dwell together.' This is the state of two dear 272 2, 37 | will dwell together,' and this is the truth." ~ 273 2, 38 | with such fire of love. Now this charity is manifested in 274 2, 38 | know, prove, and feel it. This second manifestation, however, 275 2, 38 | Sometimes I manifest Myself (and this is also a part of the second 276 2, 38 | the things of the future. This I do in many and diverse 277 2, 39 | sees the Father sees Me.' This He said because He was one 278 2, 39 | Me are but one thing. For this reason He did not say 'I 279 2, 39 | manifest myself to you, for in this manifestation of Himself, 280 2, 40 | delight and profit in Me. This is a necessary stage, by 281 2, 40 | drawing to Himself, with this love, My divine charity, 282 2, 40 | who wishes to arrive at this perfection, after she has 283 2, 40 | own pleasure and profit. This is an imperfect state, and 284 2, 40 | feeling. My Truth showed you this when He said to the disciples ' 285 2, 40 | does when she is perfect. This is what she does. Though 286 2, 40 | the orders of Holy Church. This is what the soul does in 287 2, 40 | perfection, and it is to this end, namely that she may 288 2, 40 | spiritual self-love, for this should be the end and purpose 289 2, 41 | imperfectly, and of the signs of this imperfect love. ~ 290 2, 41 | with spiritual love, know this well, for, if they have 291 2, 41 | love with which I love you. This indeed you cannot do, because 292 2, 41 | why persecute you Me?' This He said, judging that Paul 293 2, 41 | persecuted Him in His faithful. This love must be sincere, because 294 2, 41 | so that the soul may in this way come to the knowledge 295 2, 41 | for it is in virtue of this Blood that the virtues give 296 3, 1 | not occupied in prayer. This he does in order that holy 297 3, 1 | often with these words: 'This prayer avails you nothing, 298 3, 2 | vision is related which this devout soul once received. ~ 299 3, 2 | prayer of the soul. All of this she should pass by, by means 300 3, 2 | holds the key of the Blood. This is that tavern, which I 301 3, 2 | faint through weakness. This food strengthens little 302 3, 2 | through love. On seeing this the soul becomes inebriated, 303 3, 2 | her neighbor. Where can this be acquired? In the house 304 3, 2 | perfection. By what means is this acquired? By perseverance 305 3, 2 | to do, for, in doing only this, she bears but little fruit, 306 3, 2 | remission of her sins. And this she should do, so that self- 307 3, 2 | seize the arm of My mercy. This is one of the subtle devices 308 3, 2 | is a continual prayer, in this sense that a good and holy 309 3, 2 | salvation of souls, for this exercise lies at the root 310 3, 2 | not to pray.' It was for this reason that I told you that 311 3, 2 | Unless the soul keep to this path, she will always remain 312 3, 3 | own consolations. But from this hatred, founded in humility, 313 3, 4 | arrived at perfect love. This is seen by the same sign 314 3, 4 | perfection, and, through this charity, which is of the 315 3, 5 | And of a vision, which this holy soul had, concerning 316 3, 5 | Where did the soul know of this her dignity, in being kneaded 317 3, 5 | were, under a figure, and this way the Divine charity provided, 318 3, 5 | continual baptism of Blood. This the Divine charity provided 319 3, 5 | heart is sufficient for this baptism, the hand of My 320 3, 5 | giving you the fruit of this precious Blood. But if you 321 3, 5 | will receive the fruit of this baptism, of which I have 322 3, 5 | through Me, are infinite. This is in virtue of the infinite 323 3, 5 | love. And therefore can this operation be called infinite, 324 3, 5 | present, nor the future. This I manifested in the opening 325 3, 5 | steeped. And, in order to show this, it was necessary for the 326 3, 7 | just spoken, are placed in this life in order to augment 327 3, 7 | My servants in virtue in this life and as justiciars to 328 3, 8 | after she has passed through this life, sees fully the praise 329 3, 9 | then, had seen and tasted this good, when I drew him up 330 3, 9 | his body, except through this feeling and union. But it 331 3, 10 | miserably offending Me. This vision of My offense is 332 3, 10 | nourished and united with Me. This is a sight which I grant 333 3, 11 | With this light that is given to the 334 3, 11 | understand them. Wherefore I sent this light to illuminate the 335 3, 11 | had the illumination of this light according as he needed 336 3, 11 | opprobrious death of the Cross. This light is to be seen in the 337 3, 11 | declared to the faithful? By this same light. And because 338 3, 11 | love and holy fear. How was this declared to be the Truth? 339 3, 11 | declared to be the Truth? By this same supernatural light, 340 3, 11 | Scripture comes and came from this supernatural light. Ignorant 341 3, 11 | were blind notwithstanding this light, because their pride 342 3, 11 | studied it for long; and this is not remarkable, because 343 3, 11 | for the soul's salvation. This I have told you, my sweetest 344 3, 11 | might know the perfection of this unitive state, when the 345 3, 11 | supernatural light. With this light the souls in the unitive 346 3, 11 | feeds the other, and, with this light, they both arrive 347 3, 11 | the soul received in Me. This state is most excellent, 348 3, 12 | How this devout soul seeks knowledge 349 3, 12 | Then this soul, yearning with very 350 3, 12 | weeping. Wishing then to know this from the Sweet, Supreme 351 3, 14 | destroyed in everything, and in this way she lets fall sensual 352 3, 14 | perfect self-hatred. From this she draws true knowledge 353 3, 14 | heart-pangs, and so sheds tears. This is the last stage in which 354 3, 14 | tasted the bitterness of this in her self-knowledge, by 355 3, 14 | at the final stage. Yet this sorrow is no impediment 356 3, 14 | each other, for, had not this last grief (in which the 357 3, 14 | In this way will she feel the fire 358 3, 14 | herself to be loved. And, for this reason, the soul that knows 359 3, 14 | own image and similitude. This love you cannot repay to 360 3, 14 | True indeed is it that this height cannot be reached 361 3, 14 | state is changed because this further state has been reached, 362 3, 14 | state has been reached, for this further state does but increase 363 3, 14 | how sweet is the taste of this union to the soul, for, 364 3, 14 | the things of the future. This is the effect of My Goodness, 365 3, 14 | self-knowledge. I give her this light, My grace permitting, 366 3, 14 | soul is never so perfect in this life that she cannot attain 367 3, 15 | infinite. I do not say that in this life your tears can become 368 3, 15 | it is never satisfied in this life, but the more the soul 369 3, 15 | love, exercised, and with this desire the eye weeps. But 370 3, 15 | so long desired; but, in this way, hunger is kept up, 371 3, 15 | satisfied hunger again; in this way their satiety is without 372 3, 15 | desire of your souls. In this sense I said that there 373 3, 15 | tears of infinite value, and this is true as regards their 374 3, 15 | and having passed from this life in a state of love 375 3, 15 | regards the tears shed in this life only, no tongue can 376 3, 16 | mentioned at the beginning of this My discourse; those, that 377 3, 16 | proceeded from the heart, and this is the truth, for the heart 378 3, 16 | struck by various winds. This is the tree of the soul. 379 3, 16 | such a soul abandon on this account its good works, 380 3, 16 | to you in another place. This also will I sometimes do, 381 3, 16 | acceptable to Me. I acted in this way with My glorious apostle 382 3, 16 | you that the flowers of this tree were putrid, and so 383 3, 16 | honor, and takes it himself. This flower stinks less than 384 3, 16 | I say that this tree has seven branches 385 3, 16 | which they have to satiety. This is the reason why such satiety 386 3, 16 | because he is deprived of this satisfaction by his guilt, 387 3, 17 | How this devout soul, thanking God 388 3, 17 | Then this soul, eager with the greatness 389 3, 17 | Your only-begotten Son. By this abyss of Your fiery Love, 390 3, 17 | that You replied above to this question -- 'I am He who 391 3, 17 | already said in general on this matter. The second request 392 3, 17 | would gladly know whether this joy can consist with the 393 3, 17 | do not wish to fall into this snare." ~ 394 3, 18 | desire perfection. Besides this I will explain to you your 395 3, 18 | two lights derived from this primary light, and to these 396 3, 18 | pass like the wind. But this you cannot know thoroughly, 397 3, 18 | your Creator (not that by this law any man can be constrained 398 3, 18 | against his will, but that this law of perversity fights 399 3, 18 | spirit). I did not impose this law upon you, in order that 400 3, 18 | she rises against herself. This law has also been imposed 401 3, 18 | Wherefore, to one who possesses this light, the fragility of 402 3, 18 | perfect humility. So that this law does not constrain you 403 3, 18 | instability of the world. This should be seen by the eye 404 3, 18 | was the pupil of the eye. This is that light which is necessary 405 3, 18 | of the immaculate Lamb. This is the ordinary light, that 406 3, 18 | state of damnation. And, for this reason, because the soul, 407 3, 18 | See then how necessary is this light, for your sins consist 408 3, 18 | evil, and how you also need this light, as has been said." ~ 409 3, 19 | long as you are pilgrims in this life, you are capable of 410 3, 19 | arrive at perfection. In this second perfect light are 411 3, 19 | same path. Do you know why this would happen to them? Because 412 3, 19 | better in that way than in this.' And this is the way the 413 3, 19 | that way than in this.' And this is the way the soul often 414 3, 19 | if the soul were not in this condition, but were truly 415 3, 20 | soul who has arrived at this light. And of a beautiful 416 3, 20 | a beautiful vision which this devout soul once received, 417 3, 20 | last, having arrived at this glorious light, are perfect 418 3, 20 | perfection. She knows what this perfection is, having seen 419 3, 20 | salvation. And, inflamed with this desire, He ran, with great 420 3, 20 | shouting of the people. But all this He passed through like the 421 3, 20 | in its full sweetness, this light, she runs, as one 422 3, 20 | who has placed his all in this light and knowledge, and 423 3, 20 | souls. Those who are in this sweet light know it, and 424 3, 20 | by one road, because, in this way, he perceives the greatness 425 3, 20 | yourself, dearest daughter, of this sweet and excellent state, 426 3, 20 | gaze at those who run in this glorious light and holiness, 427 3, 20 | endure it with compassion of this injured neighbor, and without 428 3, 20 | were asleep, concerning this holy desire, and that the 429 3, 20 | necessary for you to arrive at this union and purity, namely, 430 3, 20 | judge that My will permits this in order to prove virtue 431 3, 20 | with holy compassion. In this way you will arrive at perfect 432 3, 20 | not you, and, in doing this, you will arrive at all 433 3, 20 | This was the doctrine given to 434 3, 20 | as these, who have learnt this doctrine, taste the earnest 435 3, 20 | earnest of eternal life in this life; and, if you have well 436 3, 20 | if you have well retained this doctrine, you will not fall 437 3, 21 | earnest of eternal lift in this life. ~ 438 3, 21 | Life. It is true that, in this life, they receive the earnest, 439 3, 21 | earnest, and taste it in this way, namely that the soul 440 3, 21 | always remains hungry. So this earnest-money is a commencement 441 3, 21 | receiving his payment. Wherefore this enamored soul, clothed in 442 3, 21 | having already received in this life the earnest of My love, 443 3, 21 | immortal life. I say that this earnest is not perfect, 444 3, 21 | who nourish themselves at this table of holy desire, are 445 3, 22 | How this soul, rendering thanks to 446 3, 22 | so that I, and others in this life of pilgrimage, may 447 3, 22 | infirmity that I knew not of, in this precept that, in no way, 448 3, 22 | one blind and sick with this infirmity, passed judgment 449 3, 22 | of the holy Church, that this truth given to me, miserable 450 3, 22 | when I see them running on this sweet and straight road, 451 3, 22 | goodness to tell me anything of this matter, I will gladly hear 452 3, 22 | holy pastors. I ask You this in order that these sentiments 453 3, 23 | How God renders this soul attentive to prayer, 454 3, 23 | the eye of His mercy upon this soul, not despising her 455 3, 23 | will fulfill your desire in this request, in order that, 456 3, 24 | in their hands; and, in this way, you will the better 457 3, 24 | breast of My Spouse." Then this soul obediently contemplated 458 3, 24 | human nature; so that in this you have greater dignity 459 3, 24 | with your human nature. This greatness is given in general 460 3, 24 | So this Word, My Son, with His most 461 3, 24 | that they may administer this light to others, with gratitude 462 3, 24 | Wisdom, My only-begotten Son. This is that Light, which has 463 3, 24 | the Divine nature, and, by this means of the Incarnate Word 464 3, 24 | I have said to you that this Body is, as it were, a Sun. 465 3, 24 | participates more or less in this light, according to the 466 3, 24 | the fire. I will develop this metaphor further that you 467 3, 24 | happens to those who receive this Sacrament. Each one carries 468 3, 24 | with which he receives this Sacrament, which of itself 469 3, 24 | and lights it by receiving this Sacrament. I say without 470 3, 24 | with which you can receive this light and feed it. The material 471 3, 24 | could you participate in this light; you would be like 472 3, 24 | souls the wick which catches this Divine Flame, that is to 473 3, 24 | does the soul united in this way obtain light? At the 474 3, 24 | coming with love to receive this Sweet and Glorious Light, 475 3, 24 | ministers, and you receive this Light according to the love 476 3, 24 | personally participate in this light, that is in the grace 477 3, 24 | grace which you receive in this Sacrament, according to 478 3, 24 | it. He who should go to this sweet Sacrament in the guilt 479 3, 24 | nothing remains but smoke; so this soul has cast the water 480 3, 24 | of the altar to receive this Light with her body, and 481 3, 24 | therefore, that in no way can this Light, united with its heat 482 3, 24 | foul, so the sweet Light of this Sacrament cannot be defiled, 483 3, 24 | communion the Light and Heat of this Sun, the Word, My only-begotten 484 3, 25 | and of a beautiful vision this soul had upon this subject. ~ 485 3, 25 | vision this soul had upon this subject. ~ 486 3, 25 | should you and others look at this mystery, and how should 487 3, 25 | sight and touch, because in this Sacrament all bodily perceptions 488 3, 25 | How is this Sacrament to be truly tasted, 489 3, 25 | of the most holy faith. This eye sees in that whiteness 490 3, 25 | been waging against you in this Sacrament; and to make you 491 3, 25 | its savor were taken away. This was shown you by My goodness, 492 3, 25 | pupil of the holy faith, for this eye should be your principal 493 3, 25 | with it you should look on this Sacrament. How do you touch 494 3, 25 | By the hand of love. With this hand alone can you touch 495 3, 25 | intellect has recognized in this Sacrament. The soul touches 496 3, 25 | the tremendous mystery of this Sacrament and the Grace 497 3, 25 | should receive and look on this Sacrament, not only with 498 3, 25 | receive, and taste, and see this Sacrament." ~ 499 3, 26 | receives, as she should, this Bread of Life, this Food 500 3, 26 | should, this Bread of Life, this Food of the Angels.
