The voice of Jesus.
Woe to the world, My Child: woe to the heart that clings to its allurements and its vanities!
For the world will continue to infect thy heart, will doubtless pervert, and finally betray thee into the power of the demon.
What can there be in common between the world and My Heart, since the world, either openly or secretly, favours every vice; whilst My Heart breathes naught, except what is holy?
Blessed is he, My Child, who withdraws his affections from the things of the world, and consecrates them to Me alone!
