From Mother Agnès to Céline - May (?), 1893.


Most importantly, address your letters to M. M. de G. Don’t forget. Petit Célin1, I want news of the interview with Uncle. I’m waiting daily.

Our Father (Canon Delatroëtte) spoke to Fr. Youf, he praised Marie and Uncle highly. I can’t believe it because usually he is cold and worse than cold even!... Poor little Marie, so she will soon take flight towards the mountain of Carmel!... And you petit Célin, will stay behind alone! Oh, once again, believe you are privileged among the privileged in our family. If only you knew how much I can sense God loves you!...

In a few days, you will receive a letter addressed to me, please don’t send it to me but bring it yourself when you have the opportunity, it’s not urgent. M. M. de G. mustn’t know about it.

Your little sister who cherishes you

Sr. Agnès of Jesus.

1 Term of endearment.
