From Marie of the Sacred Heart to Thérèse.

November 11, 1887

Thérésita of my heart,

Godmother is not forgetting her darling; she sees the dear little girl of her heart, far away, far away. . .and yet still close to her. . . . She believes that Jesus does not leave His dear Thérésita for the space of a step; she believes that in His eyes these marvels are not worth one of Theresa’s sighs.... How sweet to be so much protected and so much loved....

This is all that Marie will say tonight to her Benjamin. Let her little heart understand all the rest and let it lean on Jesus always.
