From sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to Mother Agnes of Jesus – May 27, 1917

Feast of Pentecost 1917 [27 May]

I savour your words immensely, little Mother. “God is working within us. We don’t need to see it and feel it.”

This is fortunate, because I’m becoming more and more like an unfeeling log. I ask Jesus to set fire to it and the Spirit of Love to stimulate it so that their “tiny creature” wants nothing more than to love. She doesn’t know how to say or do anything else because she’s too small and this smallness is the source of all her joy and strength.

Am I on the right path, darling little Shepherdess? Your little baby lamb still fears going astray and living under an illusion.
