Sometimes Christ comes with such great majesty that no one could doubt but that it is the Lord himself. Especially after receiving Communion – for we know that he is present, since our faith tells us this – he reveals himself as so much the lord of this dwelling that it seems the soul is completely dissolved; and it sees itself consumed in Christ. O my Jesus! Who could make known the majesty with which you reveal yourself! And, Lord of all the world and of the heavens, of a thousand other worlds and of numberless worlds, and of the heavens that you might create, how the soul understands by the majesty with which you reveal yourself that it is nothing for you to be Lord of the world!
In this vision the powerlessness of all the devils in comparison with your power is clearly seen, my Jesus; and it is seen how whoever is pleasing to you can trample all hell under foot. In this vision the reason is seen why the devils feared when you descended into limbo and why they would have preferred to be in another thousand lower hells in order to flee from such great majesty. I see that you want the soul to know how tremendous this majesty is and the power that his most sacred humanity joined with the divinity has.
