From Marie of the Sacred Heart to Thérèse.

May 20, 1888

To Thérèse of the Child Jesus My dear little daughter, Souvenir of my dear Retreat ! . . .

Pentecost Sunday May 20, '88

Lines written on the reverse side of a page from a calendar, which carried this printed text (the "souvenir" that Marie was giving to Thérèse): "Oh, Cherubim, lead me into the Bridegroom's garden! There He is. ... He is coming... . Will He stop at me!.. . Will I be the little plant upon whom He is going to look with pleasure and whose flower He will pick in order to breathe in its scent!. . . Open your petals and bend the flower of your heart towards Him, and He will look at you with love!..."
