From sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to her three sisters in the Carmel - June 2, 1927

V + J! This 2nd June 1927

Te Deum laudamus!

Rejoice with us, beloved little sisters. Our dear Mother has been elected again. We are all giving thanks and we want to share the news with you, because everything has been shared between us for a long time. Shortly, as soon as there’s an opportunity to send them, you’ll receive the circular and election results.

The very significant improvement in our beloved Mother’s health means we can enjoy her leadership for another three years. She really is God’s elect. We lift our grateful and overjoyed hearts to Him.

We are on a Pentecost retreat as well. This holy day is the feast of love par excellence. I love it passionately.

Tomorrow I’ll be 64 years old. I, too, would like to be consumed by divine love in order to die from it soon.

Happy and holy feast day, little Marie of the Holy Spirit! We desire nothing but love, don’t we? That is the only thing that’s true . . . . With my love and kisses, darling little sisters,

Sr Françoise-Thérèse

B.B.G.!
