Much-loved little sister,

I want to give you a little surprise by writing you a few lines for your birthday. "Marie" and "Céline" are not far behind and carry the beautiful rose of their deep sisterly affection. I myself send you this little keepsake.

We will take Communion for you on the third of June.

If we unite the desire held by all three of us to go to heaven, then it will make a strong force. It will create a drive so powerful that I’m afraid we might fly away for good to the bewildered looks of our two Communities! Surely not; our flight is an invisible one. It consists in penetrating the Heart of our beloved Jesus ever deeper, far away from the earth though without leaving it.

Little Mamma

Has anyone ever given you a little boat? If not I’ll send you a delightful one via messenger. It was made by an extremely adept Lay Sister.
