Christ is in our Midst LVII(letter 86)

... " You write that for twenty-five years you have been reading and listening and feeding on God's word, but it was no use. What use do you want it to have? Or do you want to see yourself faultless and holy in everything? This does not happen in the spiritual life. Be satisfied with seeing your inadequacies, for from this gradually, imperceptibly comes humility, if only to a small degree. And our deviations and attractions to worldly allurements are very humbling to our ego. I recall having written to you about this more than once...."
