Their fruits are their actions, which are 275 3, 16 | are their actions, which are all poisoned by many and 276 3, 16 | by a soul in mortal sin are of value for eternal life, 277 3, 16 | for eternal life, for they are not done in grace.

Such critics 283 3, 16 | follow the leaves, which are the words which issue from 284 3, 16 | salvation of the neighbor. These are the stained leaves of that 285 3, 16 | told you. These branches are the seven mortal sins which 286 3, 16 | seven mortal sins which are full of many and diverse 287 3, 16 | unable to satisfy them. They are insatiable and unbearable 288 3, 16 | them, because they (who are infinite in their being) 289 3, 16 | infinite in their being) are always desiring something 290 3, 17 | concerning which I fear that they are, or may become, stumbling-blocks 291 3, 17 | the sign of virtue. These are the things which I beg You 292 3, 18 | with which your members are bound, to rebel against 293 3, 19 | because, as long as you are pilgrims in this life, you 294 3, 19 | pilgrims in this life, you are capable of growth, and he 295 3, 19 | this second perfect light are to be found two kinds of 296 3, 19 | the table of penance, and are good and perfect, if their 297 3, 20 | at this glorious light, are perfect in every condition 298 3, 20 | follow Him manfully. These are they who sit at the table 299 3, 20 | salvation of souls. Those who are in this sweet light know 300 3, 20 | by which stumbling-blocks are caused, namely their own 301 3, 20 | servants of the world, and they are never scandalized by any 302 3, 20 | in their own case they are content to endure anything 303 3, 20 | such iniquities, for they are separated from Me, while 304 3, 21 | been said, their desires are without suffering, and yours 305 3, 21 | without suffering, and yours are not. These servants of Mine, 306 3, 21 | this table of holy desire, are blessed and full of grief, 307 3, 21 | nature. In like manner these are blessed by the union of 308 3, 21 | My sweet Will, and they are full of grief through compassion 309 3, 22 | more from proof, that You are the Acceptor of holy desires. 310 3, 23 | spoke to Me, know that you are, in truth, a means by which 311 3, 24 | misery of those who today are suckled at the breast of 312 3, 24 | having placed them where they are through My Goodness, over 313 3, 24 | light and heat and color are united. ~ 314 3, 24 | host is divided God and man are not divided, but remain 315 3, 24 | understand Me. Suppose that there are many who bring their candles, 316 3, 24 | same material, in that you are all created to My image 317 3, 25 | How the bodily sentiments are all deceived in the aforesaid 318 3, 25 | grosser bodily sentiments are deceived; but the soul cannot 319 3, 25 | perceptions of the body are deluded, but not those of 320 3, 26 | in this life, where you are pilgrims and travelers, 321 3, 26 | See then how straitly you are constrained and obliged 322 3, 27 | exists in this life. They are My anointed ones, and I 323 3, 27 | fellow-creatures; for, if by sin they are cruel to themselves, they 324 3, 27 | cruel to themselves, they are cruel to the souls of their 325 3, 27 | cruel to themselves, they are cruel to others." ~ 326 3, 28 | ministers; and how such are like the sun. ~ 327 3, 28 | have spoken to you, who are like the sun, for the odor 328 3, 28 | and the color, for they are united together and are 329 3, 28 | are united together and are one thing; wherefore he 330 3, 28 | three powers of his soul are brought together and ordered 331 3, 28 | as soon as these powers are thus disposed, the soul 332 3, 28 | charity.

So you see that they are angels, placed by My burning 344 3, 28 | They who hope in themselves are the ones who fear, and are 345 3, 28 | are the ones who fear, and are afraid of their own shadow, 346 3, 28 | I am He who is, and they are they who are not, and that 347 3, 28 | is, and they are they who are not, and that they have 348 3, 28 | in their footsteps. They are like precious stones, and 349 3, 28 | anointed ones and ministers are peculiarly beloved by Me, 350 3, 29 | to priests, whether they are good or bad. ~ 351 3, 29 | said, and perfect priests are themselves in a condition 352 3, 29 | appointed them, how worthy they are of being loved; when they 353 3, 29 | whom I spoke to you, which are all bound and obliged to 354 3, 29 | should hold them, for they are My beloved children and 355 3, 29 | which I forbid, because they are My Christs, and you ought 356 3, 30 | telling you how different are the struggles of the soul 357 3, 30 | sinner, and how different are their deaths, and how the 358 3, 30 | endures them, seeing that they are ordained by My will.

Oh! how happy are their souls when they come 361 3, 30 | earthly angel! happy you are in that you have not been 362 3, 30 | only-begotten Son, wherefore you are really now passing through 363 3, 31 | other poor wretches who are in great misery as I have 364 3, 31 | know not what to do. They are not nourished in hope, because 365 3, 31 | they arrive at death, they are not so inclined to abandon 366 3, 31 | Your miseries are not hid from you now, for 367 3, 31 | you the reward which they are accustomed to give their 368 3, 31 | that afterwards when you are with them they may render 369 3, 31 | you have not done so you are reproved, and for your greater 370 3, 31 | a white, than when they are separated. So it happens 371 3, 31 | daughter, how different are the sufferings and the battle 372 3, 31 | of Me, and the more they are enlightened by the Holy 373 3, 31 | Holy Scripture, the greater are their obligations and more 374 3, 31 | committed, and their torments are greater than those of others, 375 3, 31 | others, just as good men are placed in a higher degree 376 3, 31 | which they ought to be and are not.
