Details on the illness of Sr Françoise-Thérèse Martin

28th December 1930 

. . . Our dear Sister Françoise–Thérèse has proved such an edifying example to me in her days of great suffering! How edified I have been by her faith, love, and delicacy of sentiment. She does justice to our dear little Saint Thérèse, whose virtues she imitates. We are therefore overjoyed to be keeping her. It was as though all my tiredness blew away with the wind once I knew she was out of danger.

I would be very grateful, Reverend Mother, if you could ask your dear Miracle-Worker to help me live by her Little Way, because before being a nun, my name was Marie-Thérèse. Your dear Saint has always loved and protected my family and I love her very much.
