From sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to her three sisters in the Carmel - July 15, 1938

V + J! From our Caen monastery this 15th July 1938   

Darling little sisters,

A quick thank you, beloved Godmother [Marie, Thérèse’s godmother] for your kind letter. It means a great deal to me, especially now that it’s rarer to have epistles from you.

Please thank Mgr Natucci (our kind distant Brother) for having sent me these pretty photos of the Jesuit martyr.

And thank the dear Carmelite Sisters of Carpentras for kindly remembering the little visitandine and thinking to spoil her too.

We are preparing for our increasingly beloved Mother’s feast day celebration on 17th and 18th August.

With heartfelt kisses

Sr Françoise-Thérèse
