It matters not what my abilities may be then, provided that I possess you, Lord. Do what you will with this insignificant creature. Whether it be that I should work, or become inspired, or be the recipient of your impressions, it is all the same. Everything is yours, everything is from you and for you.…It is for you, Lord, to regulate everything: direction, humiliations, sanctification, perfection, and salvation – all are your business.
