From sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to her three sisters in the Carmel - December 10, 1930 (a)

Letter from Mgr Suhard with regard to the sickness of Sr Fse Th. Martin

  

10th December 1930 

  

Dear Mother Prioress,

The Mother Superior of the Visitation has already updated me with the distressing news and told me how edifying Sr Françoise-Thérèse is proving to the community. I whole-heartily unite myself with the beautiful soul who made such a strong impression on me when I made my canonical visitation. She can only rise in glory through suffering. . . . She is so close, in her way of thinking, to her little Sister . . . that this intimacy can only result in great holiness.

. . . Let us be closely united in prayer, dear Mother, and take advantage of the fine example she is setting for us, and become more and more united to God.
