From Sister Geneviève to Thérèse.

June-July (?), 1897

Here, my dear, is what 1 drew from the Gospel after asking the Blessed Virgin to console me.

"It will be for you (Thérèse) a cause of joy and happiness, and at his birth many will rejoice.... For he will be great before the Lord, and he will convert a great number of the children of Israel to the Lord their God, in order to unite the hearts of fathers to those of their sons, to lead back the unbelieving to the wisdom of the just so as to prepare for the Lord a perfect people. . .."

Oh, Thérèse, my own Thérèse!...
