1334 + In the meditation of sin, the Lord gave me to know all the malice of sin and the ingratitude that is contained in it.

I feel within my soul a great aversion for even the smallest sin. (8) However, the eternal truths I have been meditating on do not bring even a shadow of disturbance or unrest into my soul. And although I take them very much to heart, my contemplation is not thereby interrupted. In this contemplation, it is not transports of the heart that I experience, but a depth of peace and a wonderful silence. Although my love is great, I experience an extraordinary equilibrium. Even receiving the Eucharist causes no feeling, but brings me to a depth of union where my love and God‟s love are fused together as one.
