Principles and Practices - June 14

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.
