From Céline to her sisters Agnès of Jesus, Marie of the Sacred Heart and Thérèse. 14th April 1889. Fragment

Ah!!!... dear little Sisters, what a deep sigh escapes my soul at this moment! How broken my poor heart is!

I can’t grow accustomed to seeing our dear Father so sick. I always remember him at home, when he spoke to us like a real patriarch, he is so good!

Oh! God must love us very much to cause us so much distress. I wonder why he is not impatient to call our beloved Father to Him. It seems to me he is making a big effort to leave him longer on the earth. Something very beneficial must result from this not only for his glory but also for Father and for us, otherwise He wouldn’t be capable of waiting longer… Dear little Sisters, what a happy moment it will be when we shall all be reunited up above!...

Oh! how these trials make us yearn for the Homeland…
