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. It continually bothers you, it continually reminds you of itself; it does not allow even for a moment to rest from itself, hurting you and hindering every action, every action and every rapture. Also, you can not get close to Me in order to unite with Me, because it covers you from every side, and you can not feel Me. However, as the body under the hair shirt does not inflict wounds, so your soul is not the cause of My sufferings. I am denuding her now until the time when she will become completely pure; she will remain in that armor of the body, which will be tormenting her. However, when this time will come that I will take you out, you will get to know that you are not the body, but the soul, and only the soul is My treasure. As a used hair shirt, you will discard the body with contempt, but also with gratitude for it helped to sanctify you. So be happy, enduring all this unworthiness, and do not be afraid because I watch over you and I will not allow to you to be lead astray.
