Reason of usual childhood illnesses
" For there is an immense difference between a pure and a most impure child. The first can be guided by Me directly, while the second only indirectly and that along essentially, or as need be, thorny paths.
 It should not therefore be rashly asked why, not seldom children, who surely have committed either no offense at all or who at least are not yet of an accountable age, are afflicted by Me sometimes more harshly than aged sinners, who would find it as hard to number their sins as the sand of the sea.
 Here I say: whoever has notions of making a tree lean towards some direction, must start to do so while the tree is still young and tender. Once the tree has grown old, then extraordinary means would need to be applied for giving it any possible new direction; a very old tree however shall accept no other direction than the final one, when hewn down.
 And it therefore happens that I, speaks the Lord, sometimes worked children and even little ones over more severely than someone ripe in years, because nowhere are the evil spirits busier and more ready to serve than with the children, in helping the soul to build her body in such a way as for her body to harbor free and comfortable dwelling places for a large number of their kind.
