From Sister Marie-Dosithée Guérin to her sister Mrs. Martin 

 23rd April 1865.

. . .You are wrong to worry when you don’t take Marie to Mass, she is not yet obliged to go, but if she is good in church and doesn’t create too much distraction, I would like you to take her when it is possible, so that she forms good impressions early on. It is important not to force a 5 year-old child to pray to God all through the service; I think she must be able to read well enough to occupy herself during Mass.
