The Virtues Chosen for Us

All souls cannot aspire to receive the same kind of virtue from the variety of divine impressions, but all can receive the touch belonging to that state which is appropriate for them.

Some dwell in light and some in darkness, but what does this matter?

The soul seeks God himself and his action.

Let us then preach to all souls the gospel—not of the state of pure faith or pure love, not of the cross or of the caress—but let us preach to all simple hearts the gospel of self abandonment to the divine action.

They will receive by that means the special state which has been chosen for them from all eternity.
