Jesus+

Dear lamb, still one more day and you will come back to fight on the plain! .. . The little lamb will again find its Mam­ma. . . . How happy I am to be always a prisoner in Carmel; I have no desire to go to Lourdes to have ecstasies. I prefer (the monotony of sacrifice)! What a joy to be so hidden that nobody thinks of you! .. . To be unknown even to persons with whom you live         

Dear lamb, how I thank Jesus for having given me to you, for making you understand my soul so well! ... I cannot tell you all I am thinking about.... Ah! HEAVEN!!!!!! Then a single glance and all will be understood! . . .

Silence, this is the language that alone can tell you what is hap­pening in my soul! ...
