LT 262 - to sr Geneviève - August 3, 1897.

August 3, 1897

Oh, my God, how gentle You are to the little victim of Your Mer­ciful Love! Even now when You join exterior suffering to the trials of my soul, I cannot say: "The agonies of death have surrounded me," but I cry out in my gratitude: "I have descended into the valley of the shadow of death, nevertheless, I fear no evil because You are with me, Lord!"

To my beloved little Sister Geneviève of St. Teresa, August 3, 1897. Psalm XXII, 4.
