From sr Agnès of Jesus to Céline - December 1890 (?).

Darling petit Célin1,

Here is the painting of the little King of Heaven! Meagre painting! But if he revealed himself in his glory, which of us, said St. Teresa, would wish to remain on earth a second longer!...

The picture of his glory! Can we even draw it here below?

Yet it draws itself in the heart of his chosen ones in this life: the painter [r° tv] is Jesus, the brush, the cross, and the colours his precious blood. That’s as far as the earth is concerned.

But the painting has a reverse side… which our mortal eyes cannot gaze upon.
