Beloved little sister

Pray for us because the Congress is upon us and we have ever so much to do. I have to remember St Francis de Sales’ words: “Do not anticipate the events of this life with dread, but humbly trusting that you will not lack God’s help when they come to pass.” I’m quoting from memory; that’s just the gist, but it does me good.

Our "Godmother" is no worse but she too is in great need of God’s help if she is not to dread the future. She is extremely frail but still has her lovely sweet smile! She sends you her love as does “Céline” and all three of us ask you for your news.

Your little sister and mamma

Sr Agnes of Jesus
