THE SECOND MANSIONS
59
ONLY CHAPTER
TREATS OF THE GREAT IMPORTANCE OF PERSEVERANCE IN ORDER TO ENTER THE
LAST MANSIONS, AND OF THE FIERCE WAR THE DEVIL WAGES AGAINST US. HOW
ESSENTIAL IT IS TO TAKE THE RIGHT PATH FROM THE VERY COMMENCEMENT OF
OUR JOURNEY. A METHOD OF ACTION WHICH HAS PROVED VERY EFFICACIOUS.
1. Souls in the second mansions. 2. Their state. 3. Their sufferings. 4. They cannot get rid of their
imperfections. 5. How God calls these souls. 6. Perseverance is essential. 7. Temptations of the
devil. 8. Delusion of earthly joys. 9. God alone to be loved. 10. Reasons for continuing the journey.
11. War fare of the devil. 12. Importance of choice of friends. 13. Valour required. 14. Presumption
of expecting spiritual consolations at first. 15. In the Cross is strength. 16. Our falls should raise
us higher. 17. Confidence and perseverance. 18. Recollection. 19. Why we must practise prayer.
20. Meditation kindles love.
1. Now let us consider which are the souls that enter the second mansions, and what they do
there: I do not wish to enlarge on this subject, having already treated it very fully elsewhere,64 for
I could not avoid repeating myself, as my memory is very bad. If I could state my ideas in another
form they would not weary you, for we never tire of reading books on this subject, numerous as
60
they are. 2. In this part of the castle are found souls which. have begun to practise prayer; they
realize the importance of their not remaining in the first mansions, yet often lack determination to
quit their present condition by avoiding occasions of sin, which is a very perilous state to be in.
3. However, it is a great grace that they should sometimes make good their escape from the
vipers and poisonous creatures around them and should understand the need of avoiding them. In
some way these souls suffer a great deal more than those in the first mansions, although not in such
danger, as they begin to understand their peril and there are great hopes of their entering farther
into the castle. I say that they suffer a great deal more, for those in an earlier stage are like deaf-mutes
and are not so distressed at being unable to speak, while the others, who can hear but cannot talk,
find it much harder. At the same time, it is better not to be deaf, and a decided advantage to hear
what is said to us.
4. These souls hear our Lord calling them, for as they approach nearer to where His Majesty
dwells He proves a loving Neighbour, though they may still be engaged in the amusements and
business, the pleasures and vanities of this world. While in this state we continually fall into sin
and rise again, for the creatures amongst whom we dwell are so venomous, so vicious, and so
dangerous, that it is almost impossible to avoid being tripped up by them. Yet such are the pity and
61
compassion of this Lord of ours, so desirous is He that we should seek Him and enjoy His company,
that in one way or another He never ceases calling us to Him. So sweet is His voice, that the poor
