427 A moment later, I again saw the child who had awakened me.

It was of wondrous beauty and repeated these words to me,True greatness of the soul is in loving God and in humility. I asked the child, “How do you know that true greatness of the soul is in loving God and in humility? Only theologians know about such things and you haven't even learned the catechism. So how do you know?” To this He answered, I know; I know all things. And with that, He disappeared. 428 But I could no longer get to sleep; my mind became exhausted by thinking about the things I had seen. O human souls, how late you learn the truth! O abyss of God‟s mercy, pour yourself out as quickly as possible over the whole world,according to what You Yourself have said.
