Darling little sister,

7 o’clock in the evening

I have very, very great news! We have just received a telegram from Rome. “Our little Saint Thérèse’s own Mass and Office have been extended to the Universal Church.” This is a very great blessing, you understand, and in their immense joy, our Sisters rushed to the bells. They made them peal out loudly just as in the old days or when, during the battle for the Cause, important news would reach us from Rome announcing that it was progressing. Now its glory days are here and there is no other “great” news left for us to hear on earth. Let us heartily rejoice on this day, because, with the reign of His little queen, the reign of Jesus is spreading too. This is rushed; I’m holding up the post. All three of us shower you with kisses
