From Mother Agnes of Jesus to Sr Françoise-Therese (Leonie) – August 7, 1925

 

Jesus +                                                                                                 7th August 1925

Don’t be upset, darling little sister, because you had much more than the Pope’s blessing, you had the blessing of God, the Bl. Virgin and all the Saints.

You know, God often allows oversights of this sort to happen to predestined souls in order to further detach them from the earth, so that they desire and appreciate only Him, and perhaps to shield them from a certain self-complacency, so that they might be purer and more humble.

You are Jesus’ little "Violet", therefore do not be upset under your protective leaves and morning dew. No, don’t be upset by anything. Instead, rejoice that, on your silver anniversary, a pleasure was withheld from you. Once more, offer this pleasure up to Jesus your Beloved Spouse and don’t think about it again unless it is to rejoice anew because He is more glorified and you are more beautiful in His eyes.

From your little sister and Mamma, who loves you more and more

Sr Agnes of Jesus
