Where can this be acquired? In the house of 216 3, 2 | I do not wish defects to be considered in particular, 217 3, 2 | so that the mind may not be contaminated by the remembrance 218 3, 2 | that otherwise she should be brought to confusion. And 219 3, 2 | from his deceit, and to be pleasing to Me, you must 220 3, 2 | any confusion of spirit be greater than the broadness 221 3, 2 | and so shall my iniquities be consumed, and with desire 222 3, 2 | and then vocal prayer will be of use to the soul who makes 223 3, 2 | Sometimes the soul will be so ignorant that, having 224 3, 2 | visitation past, if there be time, she can resume the 225 3, 2 | ought not on that account to be troubled or suffer annoyance 226 3, 2 | of rendering the office be not omitted. But, in any 227 3, 2 | case, vocal prayer should be immediately abandoned for 228 3, 2 | vocal or mental prayer can be understood in many and diverse 229 3, 2 | wherefore vocal prayer will be made at the appointed time 230 3, 2 | will, and will sometimes be continued beyond the appointed 231 3, 2 | if the soul see him to be in need, and also her own 232 3, 2 | that actual prayer may be united with mental prayer 233 3, 3 | knowledge of self requires to be seasoned with knowledge 234 3, 4 | It now remains to be told you how it can be seen 235 3, 4 | to be told you how it can be seen that souls have arrived 236 3, 4 | will, fortifying her own to be willing to suffer pain, 237 3, 4 | that is to say, one cannot be without the other, for there 238 3, 4 | other, for there cannot be love of Me, without love 239 3, 5 | Why then did You want to be struck and have Your heart 240 3, 5 | the soul. But, if the soul be unable to confess, contrition 241 3, 5 | to, and do not, you will be deprived of the fruit of 242 3, 5 | speaking. But let no one be so mad as so to arrange 243 3, 5 | of death, when he may not be able to do so. In which 244 3, 5 | therefore can this operation be called infinite, not that 245 3, 5 | the actuality of the body be infinite, nor the pain of 246 3, 7 | making them receive injury or be deprived of their property, 247 3, 8 | ended then, you would not be, because by love you are 248 3, 8 | your being, you could not be, but My love created you, 249 3, 9 | the blessed, he desired to be loosened from the body, 250 3, 10 | they desire to come and be with Me, they are contented 251 3, 10 | Inasmuch as they appear to be suffering they are rejoicing, 252 3, 11 | which at first appeared to be dark, now appears with the 253 3, 11 | Cross. This light is to be seen in the Old and New 254 3, 11 | How was this declared to be the Truth? By this same 255 3, 11 | nevertheless, they appear to be much illuminated in their 256 3, 11 | scarcely knows whether she be in the body or out of it; 257 3, 12 | tears, and how they came to be, and whence they proceeded, 258 3, 12 | inasmuch as the truth cannot be learnt from any other than 259 3, 12 | Himself, and nothing can be learnt in the Truth but 260 3, 14 | manifests it. And if the pain be sensual the eye drops hearty 261 3, 14 | which I have permitted to be inflicted upon her for her 262 3, 14 | she counts it glory to be persecuted for My Name's 263 3, 14 | neighborly love, it would not be perfect. Therefore it is 264 3, 14 | therefore, she sees herself to be ineffably loved by Me, she 265 3, 14 | which she sees herself to be loved. And, for this reason, 266 3, 14 | further knows that she can be of no use to Me and can 267 3, 14 | which she feels herself to be loved by Me, and therefore 268 3, 14 | has received from Me, to be ministered unto by you; 269 3, 14 | you. That pure love cannot be returned directly to Me, 270 3, 14 | that this height cannot be reached without passing 271 3, 14 | final) stage. Nor can it be preserved when it has been 272 3, 14 | you, His pilgrim-members, be ever ready to grow in greater 273 3, 15 | value: and how God wishes to be served as the Infinite, 274 3, 15 | ask how their value can be infinite. I do not say that 275 3, 15 | infinite, otherwise it would be worth nothing, nor would 276 3, 15 | the Infinite God, wish to be served by you with infinite 277 3, 16 | their actions, even it will be spoiled by the foulness 278 3, 16 | whatever state a man may be, he should never stop doing 279 3, 16 | their neighbor. So if a man be a thief, he robs Me of honor, 280 3, 16 | to confess sins, and to be used in love of virtue, 281 3, 16 | but that in which they can be fed by the earth; for their 282 3, 16 | that they should always be unquiet, longing and desiring 283 3, 16 | beneath them, and he cannot be satisfied or content except 284 3, 17 | enamored -- "Thanks, thanks be to You, Supreme and Eternal 285 3, 17 | to judge the one soul to be in light, and the other 286 3, 17 | other does not, should I be right to judge that he who 287 3, 17 | pray You, so that I may not be deceived through my limited 288 3, 18 | by this law any man can be constrained to commit any, 289 3, 18 | rational creature should be conquered by it, but in 290 3, 18 | soul, because virtue cannot be proved, except by its contrary. 291 3, 18 | beauty, I caused her to be accompanied by the vilest 292 3, 18 | of the world.
