God took my son from me. What more can He do to me? I no longer fear him. The coldness of your heart may keep you from him forever. This is madness! Nothing can part us from those we have loved more than life, more than salvation itself.
Love is stronger than death. Your scriptures say so. He is love itself. If you would love, don't place yourself beyond love's reach. You must resign yourself. Open your heart. I go to Mass. I could have given up worship altogether.
Indeed, I thought of it. I lived in peace, and I should have died in peace. God has ceased to matter to me. What will you gain by making me admit I hate Him, you fool? Now at last you are face to face. He and you. You must yield to him unconditionally. I was saying to myself, 'If there were, in this world someplace free from God, if it meant suffering a death every second, eternally, I'd carry my son to that place. If your God were the god of the pagans or philosophers, though he might take refuge in the highest heavens, our misery would drag him down.
But as you know ours did not wait. You might shake your fist at Him, spit in His face, whip Him with rods, and finally nail Him to a cross. What would it matter? It is already done. The priest quickly gets it out and places his hand on the Countess's head to comfort her weeping. That evening the Countess dies and the next morning when the priest hears the tragic news he rushes to the manor to see her. When leaving the manor the priest overhears murmuring about him and when he gets a talk from the Count's uncle Canon he is told that people all over town are spreading rumors on the priests last conversation with the Countess.
People don't hate your simplicity The priest returns to the manor and Chantal lets him inside. She pushes him into the drawing-room and tells him that the governess is leaving and she is finally getting what she wanted. The priest says, "Little good it will do you. If you stay as you are, you'll always find someone to hate. But the only person you really hate is yourself. The Count returns to the manor and tells the priest to stay out of his families affairs from now on and to leave his daughter alone. The Count says to him, "I disapprove of your indiscretions.

That's how I see it. I could tell a different one," the priest says. Torcy tells the priest to stay away from the daughter Chantel because she is a demon but the priest says as long as he is the priest in this town he will close his doors to no one. For days the priest is worried that people in the town of Ambricort were secretly judging and accusing him of things he didn't do but he decides to let everyone judge his actions for himself. While sitting home with an open bottle of wine, Torcy surprises him by arriving to his home to which the Priest accidentally gets up and spills the wine bottle on the floor right when Torcy enters the house.
Seeing the broken bottle of wine on the floor, Torcy believes the priest has developed a drinking problem. So that's how it is. This isn't wine. It's some monstrous poison. After his health worsens, the priest goes to get help at a small local hospital and while walking home during the night he faints in the Auchy woods.

Having a sudden overbearing fear of death the priest decides to take the train to Lille the next morning and see a professional doctor. Before leaving that morning, Chantal makes a surprise visit while the Priest is packing. The priest asks her to help since she came all the way there against her father's will. Chantal becomes cruel when the priest tells her he will only listen to what she has to say in a confession booth and Chantel then rudely tells him her father can easily get him transferred since the whole town takes him for a drunkard.
I want everything. I'll try everything. I will sin just for sin's sake. I'll damn myself if I please. I don't believe in miracles any more than ghosts but I think I knew my mother. Yes, as young as my companion. Things suddenly seemed simple. Youth is blessed. It's a risk you take, and even that risk is blessed. By some premonition I can't explain, I understood that God didn't want me to die without knowing something of this risk. Just enough for my sacrifice to be complete when it's time came.
Finally seeing the doctor, the priest learns the truth of his condition as the doctor diagnoses him with stomach cancer which is a disease that rarely occurs to people his age. Staying at the hospital in Lille the priest decides to again start writing in his diary: "I think of my last few mornings this week, of the cock's crow and my peaceful window.

Otto made a compilation of Anne's diary, her rewritten diary texts, and some short stories.
