1332 Second day. As I was meditating on the sin of the Angels and their immediate punishment,

Satan falling from heaven, as depicted by Gustave Doré in an illustration for John Milton's "Paradise Lost".
I asked Jesus why the Angels had been punished as soon as they had sinned. I heard a voice: Because of their profound knowledge of God. No person on earth, even though a great saint, has such knowledge of God as an Angel has. Nevertheless, to me who am so miserable, You have shown Your mercy, O God, and this, time and time again. You carry me in the bosom of Your mercy and forgive me every time that I ask Your forgiveness with a contrite heart.
