the Carmel
Therese's correspondence LT 106 – To Sister Agnes of Jesus – May 10, 1890

MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus
MARTIN Pauline, Mother Agnes of Jesus


10th May 1890



                Dear lamb, one more day and you will come back to fight in the plain!... The poor lamb will finally find his Mother... How happy I am to be forever a prisoner in Carmel, I don't want to go to Heavy to have ecstasies, I prefer "the monotony of sacrifice"! What happiness to be so well hidden that no one thinks of you!... to be unknown even to the people who live with you...
                Dear lamb, how I thank Jesus for having given me to you, for making you understand my soul so well!... I cannot tell you everything I think... Ah! the sky !!! So one look and everything will be said and understood!...
                Silence, this is the language that can tell you alone what is going on in my soul!...
