Therese's correspondence LT 113 – To Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart – September 2-3, 1890

MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus
MARTIN Marie, Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart


September 2-3, 1890



                If you only knew how good your little words do me!... For me it's music from Heaven, it seems to me that I hear the voice of an angel...
                But also aren't you the angel who led and guided me on the road to exile until I entered Carmel? Even now you are still for me the angel who consoled my childhood and I see in you what others cannot see because you know how to hide what you are so well that on the day of eternity many people will be surprises.
                But your little girl will not be surprised at anything, and however beautiful your throne and your diadem may be, she will not be surprised at what the love of the divine Spouse will give to the one who will have formed the same love in her heart. for the Spouse of virgins, and your little girl also hopes to be in your crown a very small flower which will lend its humble brilliance to the glory of its visible angel of the earth.
