From sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to sr Genevieve (Celine) - May 15, 1927

15th May 1927 

. . . . . Little Céline, I, too, feel that I should work assiduously on the virtue of fraternal charity. Jesus expects it from me before coming to fetch me. Let us help each other to acquire this precious pearl. Let us pray to Thérèse, the perfect model. In this virtue, which comes straight from the meek and humble Heart of our beloved Saviour, she excelled.  

What a fond memory I have of dear Cardinal Vico! His visit was one of the most joyous moments of my life. I have a wholly filial and affectionate respect for this revered Prelate.

Oh yes, you were very much in our thoughts on the day of our jubilarian’s celebration. What a fabulous dinner she had in her honour! On Monday evening we received the telegram announcing the blessing of the statue at the Vatican. Our little Queen has her throne installed everywhere, even in the Pope’s grounds. This ideal Child of God and Holy Church is at home there because she is with her Father!
