Dearest Florentina,

Baths should be taken for health reasons and not to beautify the body.  Use baths when infirmity demands and not when the will urges, for she who does what is not necessary will easily fall into sin: "Make no provision for the flesh. . ."  But anything done for the recovery of health is fine.  So, take your baths not as dictated by the pleasure of the flesh but for the cure of ill health.  This way, you will be far from sin.
