Through Faults To Virtue
Self-knowledge is clearly necessary for anyone who seeks to have union with the Supreme Light and uncreated Truth, and this the Divine Mercy teaches to the proud and to the presumptuous commonly through their falls; suffering them to fall into some sin, which they thought there was no chance of their doing, so that, gaining in this experimental way of self-knowledge, they may learn to distrust themselves in every respect.
