Long Live + Jesus Christ!

27th February 1935

Dearest beloved little sisters,

how can I express my heart’s affection; it melts with gratitude and love. Our darling Mother is engaged in hand-to-hand combat with the divine Thief to prevent Him from taking her, but after all, what does it matter to me whether I live or die, since my only joy is to love Him?

No Communion since the 16th. What a cruel deprivation. Our darling eldest sister’s 75th birthday did not go by unnoticed. I shared your Mass and your Communions. Thank you!!!

I’m forced to stop. I can’t see anymore. Our dear nurse is a real mother. Your little S. Fse-Thérèse.
