From sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to sr Marie of the Sacred Heart –June 22, 1930

22nd June 1930 

 . . . Happy and Holy feast day, beloved eldest sister. When I take Communion for you, I’ll ask Jesus to shower you with graces and I’m sure that our little Saint Thérèse will back my request; she has so much influence over His Heart.

Poor Mrs Tifenne! Now she is in eternity! Mortal life is such a mirage; everything is vanity, apart from loving and serving God. I loved my godmother very much. I was comforted and pleasantly surprised to know she was a member of the Third Order of St Francis, and to hear she offered herself to Merciful Love. I think she was warmly welcomed and that Thérèse helped her in her mysterious passage from time to eternity. Let’s pray that she won’t be in purgatory for long.
