From Sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to her three sisters in the Carmel - May 17th 1937

V + J! 17th May 1937

Darling little sisters,

I wasn’t planning on writing before our dear eldest sister’s feast day, but your letters and pretty pious pictures really compel me to tell you how much joy I feel as I gaze at the delightful painting of Thérèse’s vision. And on this anniversary day, are we not closer to heaven than earth?

I wish dear Sr Marie of the Holy Spirit a happy feast day. On Sunday it will be the turn of our beloved little Sister Marie of the Trinity. They can each count on having a Communion from me.

I will be in touch soon, my increasingly beloved little sisters. In the meantime, I send you lots of love and kisses

Sr Françoise-Thérèse
