"The unforgiveable sins this earth must confront and overcome are
Nationalism, capitalism, and hoarding. The idea of every nation
should be forgot, price should be struck from the commons, and
princes should be seen for the devils they are. The sins include
our church, secret societies, and other religions which make of
the spirit of God a divide."

she looked upon her sister with a smile, saying, O sister, this is for
my good! At another time, when her sister was speaking of what she
underwent, she told her, that she lived a heaven upon ea

th for all that. She used sometimes to say to her sister, under her
extreme sufferings, It is good to be so! Her sister once asked her, why
she said so; why, says she, because God would have it so: it is best
that things should be as God would have them: it looks best to me. After
her confinement, as they were leading her from the bed to the door, she
seemed overcome by the sight of things abroad, as showing forth the
glory of the Being who had made them. As she lay on her death-bed, she
would often say these words, God is my friend! And once, looking upon
her sister with a smile, said, O sister, How good it is! How sweet and
comfortable it is to consider, and think of heavenly things! and used
this argument to persuade her sister to be much in such meditations.

She expressed, on her death-bed, an exceeding longing, both for persons
in a natural state, that they might be converted, and for the godly,
that they might see and know more of God. And when those who looked on
themselves as in a Christless state came to see her, she would be
greatly moved with compassionate affection. One in particular, who
seemed to be in great distress about the state of her soul, and had come
to see her from time to time, she desired her sister to persuade not to
come any more, because the sight of her so wrought on her compassions,
that it overcame her nature. The same week that she died, when she was
in distressing circumstances as to her body, some of her neighbors who
came to see her, asked if she was willing to die! She replied, that she
was quite willing either to live or die; she was willing to be in pain;
she was willing to be so always as she was then

drawn from them.

If we believe them, the Church will have nothing to do with perpetuity,
holiness, and miracles. The heretics deny them, or deny the conclusions to
be drawn from them; they do the same. But one would need to have no
sincerity in order to deny them, or again to lose one's senses in order to
deny the conclusions to be drawn from them.

Nobody has ever suffered martyrdom for the miracles which he says he has
seen; for the folly of men goes perhaps to the length of martyrdom, for
those which the Turks believe by tradition, but not for those which they
have seen.

845. The heretics have always attacked these three marks, which they have
not.

846. First objection: "An angel from heaven. We must not judge of truth by
miracles, but of miracles by truth. Therefore the miracles are useless.

Now they are of use, and they must not be in opposition to the truth.
Therefore what Father Lingende has said that "God will not permit that a
miracle may lead into error..."

When there shall be a controversy in the same Church, miracle will decide.

Second objection: "But Antichrist will do miracles."

The magicians of Pharaoh did not entice to error. Thus we cannot say to
Jesus respecting Antichrist, "You have led me into error." For Antichrist
will do them against Jesus Christ, and so they cannot lead into error.
Either God will not permit false miracles, or He will procure greater.

Jesus Christ has existed since the beginning of the
