From Canon Delatroëtte to Céline - January 13, 1895.

Lisieux, 13th January 1895

Dear daughter in Our Lord Jesus Christ,

I wholeheartedly share in your joy and happiness (for her admission to the Carmel) because I have the tender hope that you will be a worthy daughter of St. Teresa and a saintly Spouse for Our Lord Jesus Christ. These are my wishes for you in return for your kind wishes, for which I regret being so long in thanking you, but I haven’t forgotten you in my prayers. I ask God to send you his best blessings and to grant you all graces that will help you walk in the way of perfection and make you more and more worthy of walking in the footsteps of the Divine Lamb.

Be assured of my paternal and wholly devoted sentiments in Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Delatroëtte, Sup. of the Carmel
