Dear little sister,

Did you know that your Mother wrote to me to give me your news, thinking it would be too long to wait until Easter? How kind!

I am pleased that your terrible itching has subsided. I can’t sleep when I have even the slightest itch! But it’s not something that I’m prone to.

Sr Marie of the Sacred Heart is still in the same condition. She had a good Lent! She is an angel of virtue.

Would you believe that I risk having a visit from the Cardinal of Paris, and during my retreat, too!!! Still, I’m hoping that he won’t come before the 9th. On that day I come out of my solitude.

There is more news, but it’s not very certain and still top secret. His Eminence Cardinal Pacelli is now planning to take advantage of his trip to France to kneel on our little saint’s burial place, but that won’t be before 1st May.

In the meantime, let all four of us stay kneeling "at the foot of the cross to receive the divine dew of salvation.”

Your little Sister and Mamma

Sr Agnes of Jesus
