From Sister Agnès of Jesus to Céline. 27th April 1888.


Jesus’ cherished little lamb,

Again I wish you a happy birthday (after the visit), be always what you are, strong, resigned in all life’s little sorrows, and devoted to everyone.

I love you very much my petit Célin1 and darling little daughter. Love God a great deal and you shall love me enough

[r°] 19 years old! You’re still in the springtime of your life. Oh, how fortunate we are to dream only of the flowers of virtue, and the flowers of Heaven!... That is indeed your dream… Jesus is really very generous to the little nest of birds at Les Buissonnets.

Farewell my darling, even though I say nothing, my heart is always speaking to you.

Pray for our beloved Mother. She is still suffering a great deal. (Mother Marie de Gonzague)

[tv] Give a big kiss to my Léonie, I found she was very nice this morning.
