I would also like to speak about the readings and the Psalm, which are the Word of God addressed to man at the right time, when he needs them the most. You have to listen to the Word of God with such a mindset, and immediately apply it to your life; let it reach the mind, the heart, and expose the falsehoods, the lies and all hypocrisy. This is the most important. If, after hearing the Word of God, we are left with a commotion, an anxiety about doing the will of God; it is a blessed anxiety, which shows us where in the soul we are still susceptible to the evil spirit. This anxiety is caused by a discrepancy between the Word of God and our behaviour. It (the anxiety) has to be noticed and dealt with, changing our behaviour in the matter that touched us. The word of God is alive and acts in the soul; it enters as a sword and wounds everything that is not of God. We have to let it act. Let us ask the Holy Spirit to act with power in our souls. The Word of God is perfect in itself, so we should also pay attention not to attempt to diversify it in any way. This is offensive to God, who always gives things in a perfect form.
