LT 231 - to Mother Agnes of Jesus - May 30, 1897.


May 30, '97

Do not be grieved, dear little Mother, because your little girl has seemed to hide something from you. I say seemed, for you know very well, if she has hidden a little corner of the envelope, she has never hidden from you a single line of the letter, and who then knows better than you this little letter that you love so much? To others I can show the envelope on all sides since they can see only this, but to you!!!... Oh! little Mother, you know now that it was on Good Friday that Jesus began to tear a little the envelope of your little letter. Are you not happy because He is getting ready to read this letter that you have been writing for the last twenty-four years?! Ah, if you only knew how well it will be able to tell Him of your love throughout all Eternity.
