This creature asked Our Lord how she should best love him, and Our Lord said: 'Have mind of thy wickedness and think of thy goodness.' She said again: 'I am the most unworthy creature that ever thou showedst grace unto on earth.' 'Oh daughter,' said Our Lord, 'fear thee nothing. I take no heed what a man hath been, but I take heed what he will be.'
