   Darling little Mother,

So I’m 75 years old today! I assure you I can hardly believe it . . . . Oh, the words you quoted by our little Thérèse did me so much good: “I can depend on no works of my own, but only upon the mercy of God.”

It’s so encouraging and so true! It removes all fear. Little Mother, for me you are “the unfailing compass”. I feel that God speaks to me through you. You are a reflection of his goodness and love when it comes to your little Marie. You support her in her trials and promise her that she will go straight to heaven after this exile which, for all of us, is coming to an end.

Our Léonie has arrived at port after all the storms. What bliss it is to put all one’s trust in the One who never fails us, and especially to have trust in the depths of the abyss, when all is darkness around us. That is what touches Him, is it not darling little Mother?

Your ever young old Marie
