From Mother Agnès to Céline - October 20, 1893. 


Darling petit Célin1, happy feast day… I have only the time to send you lots of big kisses and say: I love you!... Your memory, my little Céline, is so sweet to me that it is like rest for my soul… Fear nothing, your heart belongs to Jesus, completely to Jesus!... Thank him every day for having favoured you to such a great extent!

See you soon, petit Célin! Thank you for your delightful little pots but I am perhaps depriving you of them, which detracts from my joy a little… Thank you also for the lovely canvas. How kind you are to us!...

Your little Mother who cherishes you

Sr. Agnès of Jesus


Sr. Marie of the Sacred Heart wishes a happy feast day to her petit Célin but we informed her too late; she hasn’t the time to write, but always has time to love her petit Célin.

Happy feast day on behalf of Mother Marie de Gonzague who is on her great retreat.
