From Sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to her two Carmelite sisters in the Carmel - June 3rd 1941

V + J! From our Caen monastery 3rd June 1941 

Beloved little sisters,

I’m speechless. I would like the language of heaven to express everything my poor heart feels. I could die of happiness. There’s the much-desired blessing from our Angelic Pastor, and the delightful and charming Tabor, which is certainly not too beautiful to encase our manifest relic. The little lizard has a certain sparkle as well, but only to delight the eyes of her Beloved. I’ll stop there, as I hope to write to you again soon because my little heart is bursting with joy and gratitude. I’d like to hold both of you in my arms, as I’ll do for eternity in the heavenly Homeland. In the meantime, I’ll make up for it with Mamma Lamb. Your little Sr Françoise-Thé.
