From sr Marie of the Sacred Heart to Céline - August 13, 1893.

Little Céline,

I didn’t know that Thérèse had written to you, otherwise I would have been very happy to write you a note. It’s impossible at the moment, we are expecting the letter. My Célin1, I share in all your difficulties, pray to St. Joseph, he’ll pull you out of this predicament. I haven’t the time to say one more word, and yet I have so much to tell you. Your painting of the Nativity fills me with happiness, every day [v°l I look at it with devotion. If only you knew how much love it puts in my heart for the baby Jesus. Alas! what has God not done for us? When we meditate on this mystery, we are astounded by the ingratitude of mankind.
