So the Bridge 133 2, 15 | of God, by these words, she humbly waited for the fulfillment 134 2, 15 | power, but only so far as she is helped by Me. It is true 135 2, 15 | proceeds every evil. But if she were grateful for the benefits 136 2, 15 | grateful for the benefits she has received, she would 137 2, 15 | benefits she has received, she would know Me, and knowing 138 2, 15 | would remain in My love: but she, as if blind, goes groping 139 2, 15 | groping down the river, and she does not see that the water 140 2, 17 | slave of riches, so that she cares not to observe My 141 2, 17 | through affection of love.

But if she 148 2, 21 | she can find mercy. But if she pass the Bridge of death 149 2, 21 | account of My displeasure, she arrives at eternal damnation. 150 2, 21 | eternal damnation. And then she is reproved cruelly by My 151 2, 21 | and false judgment which she has practiced generally 152 2, 21 | and false judgment which she practices at the end, in 153 2, 25 | having come to naught, but she can always love with that 154 2, 25 | that affection with which she comes to Me, and that measure 155 2, 25 | that is measured to her. She always desires Me, and loves 156 2, 25 | in vain -- being hungry, she is satisfied, and being 157 2, 25 | satisfied, and being satisfied, she has hunger, but the tediousness 158 2, 25 | They see that, by My mercy, she is raised from the earth 159 2, 25 | of that soul, which good she has received through My 160 2, 25 | garments of her own flesh which she had quitted.

And as I told you 170 2, 28 | without this pupil of faith she would not see, except as 171 2, 28 | drawn over it by self-love, she does not see, but only has 172 2, 28 | without the light, because she has hidden it. Thus you 173 2, 29 | notwithstanding all this, she saw them, through self-love 174 2, 29 | Himself to her. And, for this, she was in bitterness, and fixing 175 2, 29 | intellect on the Eternal Father, she said: "Oh, Inestimable Love, 176 2, 30 | love something, because she is made of love, and, by 177 2, 30 | the indignity into which she has fallen through sin. 178 2, 30 | and love of vice, whence she draws pride and impatience, 179 2, 30 | the Blood of My Son, and she cannot be dominated unless 180 2, 30 | cannot be dominated unless she consent with her will, which 181 2, 34 | diverse considerations. She saw that many began to mount, 182 2, 34 | their own personal pain, and she saw others, practicing this 183 2, 34 | the second state, but few she saw who arrived at the greatest 184 2, 36 | see the punishment which she expects to receive for her 185 2, 36 | bear to the soul, so that she may climb with love and 186 2, 37 | soul acts imperfectly, for she has not yet unwound the 187 2, 37 | spiritual self-love, for, had she unwound it she would see 188 2, 37 | for, had she unwound it she would see that, in truth, 189 2, 37 | from which imperfection she must advance to perfection, 190 2, 37 | perfection, either while she lives, by a generous love 191 2, 37 | imperfection, with the purpose, had she but time, of serving Me, 192 2, 38 | degree of perfection which she seeks in Me. Sometimes I 193 2, 38 | desire of the soul. Sometimes she seeks Me in prayer, wishing 194 2, 38 | see My virtue. Sometimes she seeks Me in the wisdom of 195 2, 40 | soul always fears until she arrives at true love. But 196 2, 40 | at this perfection, after she has risen from the guilt 197 2, 40 | fear of the penalty, whence she rises to the consideration 198 2, 40 | in which contemplation, she finds her own pleasure and 199 2, 40 | former consolations. When she was in the guilt of mortal 200 2, 40 | the guilt of mortal sin, she had separated herself from 201 2, 40 | the door of desire. When she knows herself and her darkness, 202 2, 40 | herself and her darkness, she opens the window and vomits 203 2, 40 | light of faith, so that she come to prudence. Then, 204 2, 40 | come to prudence. Then, if she love Me without thought 205 2, 40 | hatred of her own sensuality, she rejoices in the time of 206 2, 40 | at perfection, and what she does when she is perfect. 207 2, 40 | and what she does when she is perfect. This is what 208 2, 40 | is perfect. This is what she does. Though she perceives 209 2, 40 | is what she does. Though she perceives that I have withdrawn 210 2, 40 | I have withdrawn Myself, she does not, on that account, 211 2, 40 | fire of charity. How does she await me? Not in idleness, 212 2, 40 | with the light of faith, she extirpates, with hatred, 213 2, 40 | knowledge of Me and of herself, she continues to pray with the 214 2, 40 | with actual prayer, which she practices at the appointed 215 2, 40 | to this end, namely that she may arrive at perfection, 216 2, 40 | do I leave her, so that she may see and know her defects, 217 2, 40 | consolation and afflicted by pain, she may recognize her own weakness, 218 2, 40 | and learn how incapable she is of stability or perseverance, 219 2, 41 | soul by sentiment, that she may be thus led to enclose 220 2, 41 | proportion to the degree in which she refers to grace the power 221 2, 41 | slaying her own will. And she never ceases to cultivate 222 2, 41 | Christ crucified, which she has found on her journey 223 3, 1 | self-knowledge and entered therein, she remains, with her door barred, 224 3, 1 | consolations of the world. Why does she thus shut herself in? She 225 3, 1 | she thus shut herself in? She does so from fear, knowing 226 3, 1 | also from the desire, which she has, of arriving at pure 227 3, 1 | generous love. And because she sees and knows well that 228 3, 1 | that in no other way can she arrive thereat, she waits, 229 3, 1 | can she arrive thereat, she waits, with a lively faith 230 3, 1 | For no other reason ought she to leave off prayer, for, 231 3, 1 | wearied and confused in mind, she may abandon the exercise 232 3, 2 | virtue. Wherefore should she persevere and never abandon 233 3, 2 | of the soul. All of this she should pass by, by means 234 3, 2 | nourishment from prayer, if she pray only vocally, as do 235 3, 2 | for, in doing only this, she bears but little fruit, 236 3, 2 | also is it with her prayer. She should nevertheless continue 237 3, 2 | continue in vocal prayer, while she is yet imperfect, so as 238 3, 2 | fall into idleness. But she should not say her vocal 239 3, 2 | that is to say, that while she is reciting, she should 240 3, 2 | that while she is reciting, she should endeavor to elevate 241 3, 2 | only- begotten Son, wherein she finds the breadth of My 242 3, 2 | remission of her sins. And this she should do, so that self- 243 3, 2 | for fear that otherwise she should be brought to confusion. 244 3, 2 | displeasure of sin, and so she would arrive at eternal 245 3, 2 | would come to her, because she did not seize the arm of 246 3, 2 | and pleasing to Me, and she will arrive, from the vocal 247 3, 2 | perfect mental prayer; but if she simply aims at completing 248 3, 2 | abandons mental prayer, she will never arrive at it. 249 3, 2 | the presence of My Truth, she (the soul), in order to 250 3, 2 | abandon My visitation, that she feels, as it were, by conscience, 251 3, 2 | than abandon that which she had begun. She should not 252 3, 2 | that which she had begun. She should not do so, for, in 253 3, 2 | do so, for, in so doing, she yields to a deception of 254 3, 2 | of the Devil. The moment she feels her mind disposed 255 3, 2 | many ways I have told you, she should abandon vocal prayer; 256 3, 2 | past, if there be time, she can resume the vocal prayers 257 3, 2 | the vocal prayers which she had resolved to say, but 258 3, 2 | resolved to say, but if she has not time to complete 259 3, 2 | not time to complete them, she ought not on that account 260 3, 2 | perfection, and therefore she should not abandon it, but 261 3, 2 | exercise in perseverance, she will taste prayer in truth, 262 3, 2 | the intellect, the more she knows; and the more she 263 3, 2 | she knows; and the more she knows, the more she loves, 264 3, 2 | more she knows, the more she loves, and, loving much, 265 3, 2 | loves, and, loving much, she tastes much. You see then, 266 3, 2 | one with the other. Thus she will exercise together mental 267 3, 2 | on with prayer, and when she has arrived at friendly 268 3, 2 | friendly and filial love she does so. Unless the soul 269 3, 2 | soul keep to this path, she will always remain tepid 270 3, 2 | proportion to the pleasure which she finds in My service." ~ 271 3, 3 | attains to perfection, which she does after she has attained 272 3, 3 | perfection, which she does after she has attained to friendly 273 3, 3 | filial love. I tell you that she arrives at perfect love 274 3, 3 | hatred, founded in humility, she will draw patience, with 275 3, 3 | draw patience, with which she will become strong against 276 3, 3 | coming of the Holy Spirit. She should remain fasting and 277 3, 3 | doctrine of My Truth, and she will become humble because 278 3, 3 | will become humble because she will know herself in humble 279 3, 4 | by which the soul knows she has arrived at perfect love. ~ 280 3, 4 | house with perseverance, she conceives the virtues by 281 3, 4 | which power and virtues she overrules and conquers her 282 3, 4 | and through which charity she participates in the wisdom 283 3, 4 | wisdom of My Son, in which she sees and knows, with the 284 3, 4 | consolations, as has been said, and she knows also the malice and 285 3, 4 | by that imperfect love. She therefore arises, with hatred 286 3, 4 | which is of the Holy Spirit, she participates in His will, 287 3, 4 | the house through My Name, she brings forth the virtues 288 3, 4 | the virtues, I mean that she issues out of the House 289 3, 4 | the neighbor's necessity she loses that fear of being 290 3, 4 | birth to those virtues which she has conceived through affection 291 3, 5 | arriving at the Side, where she found the secret of the 292 3, 5 | Blood? In the Side, where she knew the fire of divine 293 3, 6 | perfect is her vision that she sees the glory and praise 294 3, 8 | How the soul, after she has passed through this 295 3, 8 | Me, the Eternal Father, she loves, and loving, she is 296 3, 8 | she loves, and loving, she is satisfied. Satisfied, 297 3, 8 | is satisfied. Satisfied, she knows the Truth, and her 298 3, 8 | glory and praise of My Name. She now, in truth, sees it completely 299 3, 8 | I told you. And although she also sees the injury done 300 3, 8 | only compassion, because she loves without pain, and 301 3, 10 | account of the union which she had made with Me, is impatient 302 3, 11 | immortals, and oftentimes she arrives at so great a union 303 3, 11 | at so great a union that she scarcely knows whether she 304 3, 11 | she scarcely knows whether she be in the body or out of 305 3, 11 | Eternal Life, both because she is united with Me, and because 306 3, 11 | and in no other way could she perfectly have done so. 307 3, 12 | both by the union which she had had with God, and by 308 3, 12 | had with God, and by what she had heard and tasted of 309 3, 12 | of God. And nevertheless she had joy from the hope of 310 3, 12 | her, teaching her the way she was to direct her will ( 311 3, 12 | the sweet Truth, to whom she remained united, wishing 312 3, 12 | these states with tears, she wished to learn from the 313 3, 12 | the eye of the intellect, she made her request of the 314 3, 12 | Wherefore, knowing that she had not forgotten the teaching 315 3, 12 | that in no other way could she learn about the different 316 3, 12 | states and fruits of tears, she rose out of herself, exceeding 317 3, 12 | light of a lively faith, she opened the eye of her intellect 318 3, 12 | the Eternal Truth, in whom she saw and knew the Truth, 319 3, 14 | stage of the soul. And so she proceeds, with love, to 320 3, 14 | But, inasmuch as she has not yet arrived at great 321 3, 14 | arrived at great perfection, she often drops sensual tears, 322 3, 14 | is deprived of the thing she loves, that is, internal 323 3, 14 | external being that which she had from the creature, and 324 3, 14 | suffering of the heart, she begins to weep with a tender 325 3, 14 | everything, and in this way she lets fall sensual tears -- 326 3, 14 | light of self-knowledge, she conceives displeasure at 327 3, 14 | perfect self-hatred. From this she draws true knowledge of 328 3, 14 | with a fire of love, and she begins to unite herself 329 3, 14 | loss due to herself; for she does not think of herself, 330 3, 14 | in an ecstasy of desire, she joyfully takes the food 331 3, 14 | sustaining them with joy, she counts it glory to be persecuted 332 3, 14 | Name's sake in whatever she may have to suffer.

Wherefore she often receives the spirit 354 3, 14 | My love, but in so far as she desires them by reason of 355 3, 14 | grace permitting, so that she may ever grow in virtue. 356 3, 14 | perfect in this life that she cannot attain to a higher 357 3, 15 | the soul loves the less she seems to herself to love. 358 3, 15 | has reached Me, her End, she does not on that account 359 3, 15 | of ever losing that which she has so long desired; but, 360 3, 17 | explanation and satisfaction which she had received from the Truth, 361 3, 18 | and the desire with which she longed to serve Him, turned 362 3, 18 | to prove the love which she has for Me, her Creator. 363 3, 18 | Me, her Creator. How does she prove it? When, with anger 364 3, 18 | with anger and displeasure, she rises against herself. This 365 3, 18 | her true beauty consisted, she should not raise her head 366 3, 18 | as, not having the light, she does not know the evil of 367 3, 18 | that is to say virtue, she cannot love or desire either 368 3, 19 | of which I have spoken, she should not remain contented, 369 3, 19 | very fact, is turning back. She should either grow in the 370 3, 19 | the general light, which she has acquired through My 371 3, 19 | the soul truly have light, she will wish to arrive at perfection. 372 3, 19 | her own perfection; yet she does not perceive it, nor 373 3, 19 | stench of pride, and there she lies. Now, if the soul were 374 3, 19 | humble and not presumptuous, she would be illuminated to 375 3, 19 | have elected the soul. And she would see that I give everything 376 3, 19 | love and reverence, should she receive everything, which 377 3, 20 | except seeing in what way she can preserve and increase 378 3, 20 | doctrine of perfection. She knows what this perfection 379 3, 20 | full sweetness, this light, she runs, as one enamored and 380 3, 20 | the table of holy desire; she does not see herself in 381 3, 20 | destroyed his own will, she shuns no labor from whatever 382 3, 20 | from creatures, because she is stripped of mercenary 383 3, 20 | soul is to Me, the purer she becomes, and the further 384 3, 20 | becomes, and the further she is from Me, the more does 385 3, 20 | the love of her neighbor, she remains always in Mine, 386 3, 21 | souls, and being hungry, she eats, that is to say, nourishes 387 3, 21 | offense of her neighbor. She has indeed, in a sense, 388 3, 22 | humiliates herself; then she prays for the whole world 389 3, 22 | and, after these things, she asks to hear something about 390 3, 22 | the union of love which she had made with her Creator, 391 3, 22 | if, in elevation of mind, she had gazed into the eternal 392 3, 23 | the last petition, which she had made concerning His 393 3, 24 | contemplated the truth, in which she saw virtue resplendent in 394 3, 24 | which is her very food, she cannot live. Where does 395 3, 24 | who receives unworthily? She is like a candle on which 396 3, 24 | mind upon the candle which she received in holy baptism, 397 3, 24 | soul is not disposed as she should be for so great a 398 3, 24 | darkness. Of the Sacrament she feels nothing but the crackling 399 3, 24 | proper disposition so that she could not receive the Light. 400 3, 24 | desire of the soul when she receives the Sacrament, 401 3, 25 | among the other benefits she receives from Me, the special 402 3, 25 | Me, the special Gift that she receives in the Sacrament. ~ 403 3, 25 | in her sentiments unless she wish to be -- that is, unless 404 3, 25 | to be -- that is, unless she let the light of the most 405 3, 25 | certify to herself that which she has seen and known through 406 3, 25 | not those of the soul, for she is illuminated and assured 407 3, 25 | her own perceptions, for she touches with the hand of 408 3, 25 | is, with fiery desire -- she tastes My Burning Charity, 409 3, 26 | the soul who receives, as she should, this Bread of Life, 410 3, 26 | receiving this Sacrament she dwells in Me and I in her, 411 3, 26 | grace dwells, for, since she has received this Bread 412 3, 30 | because at the moment of death she realizes better the value 413 3, 30 | pupil of the holy faith, she sees Me, the Infinite and 414 3, 30 | Infinite and Eternal Good, whom she hopes to obtain by grace, 415 3, 30 | with the hands of love, she seems to enter into His 416 3, 30 | into His possession before she actually does so, in the 417 3, 30 | narrow door of the Word she reaches Me, the Sea Pacific. 418 3, 30 | this pass, for in Truth she tastes the happiness of 419 3, 32 | though the soul is filled she is not sated, but ever desires 420 3, 32 | You, and the more of You she has, the more she seeks -- 421 3, 32 | of You she has, the more she seeks -- and the more she 422 3, 32 | she seeks -- and the more she desires, the more she finds 423 3, 32 | more she desires, the more she finds and tastes of You -- 424 3, 32 | You thanks, because I am she who is not, and if I spoke 425 3, 32 | cannot desire enough; for she cannot desire it in itself, 426 3, 32 | her with things for which she does not ask You. Moreover, 427 4, 1 | and with the same milk she feeds the virtue of obedience. 428 4, 1 | to please Me. Where does she find this? In sweet Christ 429 4, 1 | darkness of infidelity, so she hastens along the way of 430 4, 2 | to be found, and whence she comes, and who is her companion, 431 4, 2 | contains all the rest, for she is conceived and born of 432 4, 2 | rock of the holy faith. She is a queen whose consort 433 4, 2 | interior of the soul in whom she dwells. Such a one feels 434 4, 5 | light of the most holy faith she would have learnt, in the 435 4, 5 | with due perfection. So she wanders, seeking by that 436 4, 5 | what place and in what way she can pay her debt, trampling 437 4, 5 | in her search by faith, she finds the place -- namely, 438 4, 5 | enters there as one dead, if she is truly obedient; that 439 4, 5 | obedient; that is to say, if she have perfectly observed 440 4, 5 | general obedience. And even if she should be imperfect when 441 4, 5 | should be imperfect when she enters, it does not follow 442 4, 5 | it does not follow that she cannot attain perfection. 443 4, 5 | perfection.

She dwells in the garden of 447 4, 6 | fire of love with which she observes the rules of the 448 4, 7 | her heart is different. She does not serve, or act towards 449 4, 9 | of this spouse obedience? She eats knowledge of self, 450 4, 9 | Incarnate Word. What does she drink? The Blood, in which 451 4, 9 | His Eternal Father, so she becomes inebriated with 452 4, 10 | soul may know by which road she is walking and of the hidden 453 4, 11 | satiated in Your abyss, for she continually hungers after 454 4, 11 | no fear to the soul, for she knows the truth; it is a 455 4, 11 | soul is certain of what she believes.

She lay in this state for eight 479 Lette, 0| to such an extent that she would often say: "These 480 Lette, 0| explain the patience which she practiced, under this terrible 481 Lette, 0| new torment came upon her, she would joyously raise her 482 Lette, 0| skin, and so feeble was she from the waist downwards 483 Lette, 0| the waist downwards that she could not move herself, 484 Lette, 0| her, and we thought that she was approaching the end. 485 Lette, 0| then called around her, and she, with singular humility 486 Lette, 0| were standing near that she desired to receive Holy 487 Lette, 0| it was done.
