From sr Agnès of Jesus to Céline - March 18-19, 1888.

From Sister Agnès of Jesus to Céline. 18th‑19th March 1888.

Petit Célin1, whose foot hurts, I love you as my darling little daughter who I prepared for her first Communion… I hope you always hurt your foot when walking on earth so that in suffering you shall inevitably become detached from all that passes, spread your wings and fly towards Heaven.

Darling, God shall reward you for your generosity in giving him Thérèse. He doesn’t love you less than her and He is waiting for you too!...

Poor little Léonie will perhaps be hurt at not having a little note, don’t tell her I wrote to you.

1 Term of endearment.
