Much-loved little sister,


I told you that His Eminence Cardinal Pacelli might come to Lisieux. For several reasons, his desire cannot be fulfilled. Let us unite for the great triduum in Lourdes.

There will also be lovely celebrations in Lisieux. Let us hope that all the prayers said in Lourdes and around the globe will bring peace to the world.

Fortunately, peace in is our hearts and in the hearts of many who love God. What a blessing it is to have spent so many years hidden in the crevice of the rock that is monastic life! And now we are old doves ready to fly towards the eternal Altars!

You’ll laugh, because your last flight was halted! So was Sr Marie of the S.H.’s, and mine a few years ago.

Forgive me for such a short note. I am literally swamped!!!

We’ll have news of our little sister soon, won’t we?

Goodbye in Jesus. Let us fly towards Him.

With love from your loving little Sister and Mamma

Sr Agnes of Jesus


Give my respectful, affectionate and grateful regards to those around you.
