From Léonie to Céline - September 14th 1894

14th Sept. 1894

Beloved little Céline,

My first words after thanksgiving are for you. No, no, we never parted; I feel very much united to you in the Divine Heart, where I find strength and courage for my broken soul. But these breaks are both sweet and sanctifying at the same time. How good Jesus’ hand is, even at the height of a trial!

It is 8 o’clock, the sacrifice is fulfilled! (Céline joined the Carmel after the 7 o’clock Mass on the Feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross.)

At the foot of the Cross, I leave you and love you, beloved little dove of Jesus’ Heart.
