LT 184 From Thérèse to Sister Geneviève.

 

February 24, 1896

J.M.J.T.

To you, dear child, I give as wedding present the last tear I shed on this earth of exile. Carry it on your heart and remember that it is through suffering that a Sister Geneviève of Saint Teresa can reach sanctity. You will have no trouble in loving the Cross and the tears of Jesus if you think often of this saying: "He loved me and He gave Himself up for me!'"
