 Darling little sisters, we are now closer to heaven than earth, are we not? What a profitable Lent this will be . . . Our hearts and souls are fused with those of Jesus and Mary. What an ineffable union!!!

Your kind letters are a delight to me and bring me such comfort!

What a beloved Angelic Pastor we have! His speeches will be a delight to us. How we’ll benefit from meditating on them. They are like manna from heaven, and we’ll be sure to appreciate and make the most of them, for they provide nourishment for eternal life.

I don’t know how to thank you for this precious and very valuable feast day gift. My poor little heart is overflowing with gratitude and love.

Your very happy little visitandine

Sr Françoise-Thérèse
