From Sister Agnès of Jesus to Céline. 26th April 1889.


My darling,

Your 20th birthday is bathed in tears; normally at this age, there is joy, illusion, and everything smiles! Thank Jesus for having given you the best, true, and most precious proof of his love: the Cross! We are going to heaven; in view of this eternal celebration let us keep our souls young.

Trials are sent to us to [v°] preserve our souls from the wrinkles of sin. Trials are good, material heartbreaks make the soul’s heart like a beautiful diamond that’s capable of mirroring all of Heaven. Angels gaze at their reflections in its shiny water and above all Jesus sees his own image, the image of Jesus, his portrait, that is to say the Heaven of Heavens!

Farewell, my darling, give my love to the big sheep who bleats at your side (Léonie)…

Sr. Agnès of Jesus
