5th February


The more we purify ourselves of the sins we know we have, the more we acquire the light to see the sins we do not know we have, thus purifying ourselves of these also. St. Teresa compared the supernatural light that penetrates the soul to the beam from the sun which, entering a room through the glass of the windows, reveals the innumerable particles of dust pressing and hitting each other in a continuous vortex in motion, whereas before nothing could be seen. Similarly, the soul enlightened by grace sees in itself many defects, which it could not see before.
