1. Human nature is for the soul what the hair shirt is for the body


Lord Jesus:  My daughter, do not give up. This is what your fight is based upon, upon trust. It is the weapon that I constantly multiply in you. Thus, do not be afraid, because you will manage to vanquish all these adversities and you will remain faithful. Do not let yourself be deceived with undue hatred towards yourself. You know well that you should hate sin, and not your person, which is the closest to Me. Understand, daughter, that it means something else to hate the nature, which is sinful, and something else to hate your poor soul, which is subjected to it. Do not condemn yourself, because through this you would also condemn My action, which was the deprivation of man of his unblemished dignity, so that he could atone for his sin. Thus, your nature is your form, which oppresses you, which bothers you. You can say that it is for your soul what the hair shirt is for the body.
