From sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to her three sisters in the Carmel - June 22, 1899

Yes, this time I’m very happy and have absolutely no doubt that on 2nd July 1900, Jesus’ happy little victim will finally consummate her sacrifice and irrevocable union with her heavenly Bridegroom. What joy there’ll be in heaven and on earth! Our Angel’s triumph will be supreme, because, after the Heart of Jesus, is it not to her that I owe everything?

I must go on retreat on Monday evening, because the ceremony has been fixed for the last Friday in this blessed month of the Sacred Heart. Come with me on retreat, dear little sisters, and accompany me with your prayers, so that on the great day of her betrothal, your little Léonie won’t just have changed in name but also in everything that might displease her Bridegroom, the only One she wants to love.
