Much-loved little sister,

You, too, need a little note from your tiny 74 year old “Sister and Mamma”. So here it is. May our holy little Thérèse unite us ever closer, may she fill her beloved sisters’ hearts with her surrender and immense trust, and, if it is God’s will, may she soon come and detach us from earth forever.

Sr Agnes of Jesus

Happy and holy feast day on the 30th, darling little sister. When will we fete our little sister in heaven? That said, we earn more merits in exile through faith. Yes, I do remember the feast day of 25th August. Those memories are distant and yet so fresh in our hearts!

I won’t say any more, because I have just written to you! I love you dearly, it’s pointless repeating it! Farewell, little sister.

Your eldest sister

Sr Marie of the Sacred Heart
