V + J! From our Caen monastery 6th August 1939


Darling little Céline,

As you know, it’s with great sisterly love that I’m writing to you again for your feast day. I beg Jesus to shower you with his manifest blessings in the Communion I will take for you. Then, my increasingly loving heart can rest in peace, sure that all my debts have been paid.

What do you make of our darling Mother’s unparalleled and attentive kindness? Knowing your garden was devastated by the flood, she lovingly did everything she could to alleviate the problem. It moved me to tears.

Darling Céline, you asked me for news of my health. Alas, I’m a poor little old woman with aches and pains all over. To think I could go on like this until I’m a hundred! What a catastrophe!!! Blessed be God! Let us love His will and nothing else, and we’ll turn this earth into a piece of heaven.

We are perfectly united, are we not, since all four of us are quite frail now? Your very loving little visitandine

Sr Françoise-Thérèse
