From sr Genevieve (Celine) to sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) - December 21, 1930 

+ Jesus                                                                Carmel of Lisieux 21st December 1930 

What bliss it is, dear little sister, to be reunited at Christmas once more! God did not want us to miss our appointment. You’ll understand how much pleasure the good news about your health brings us! And yet has the time to emigrate to the Homeland not yet come? This prolonged wait is a trial for our faith and trust. Let us not waste this opportunity to suffer it well, and joyfully, even. Let us copy our little saint, who said, “When the saints and even God mislead me, I pay them all manner of compliments, and then they don’t know what to do with me.”

That is my spiritual bouquet, dear little Léonie. With that, I send you lots of love and kisses

Your little Céline
