Therese's correspondence LT 116 – To Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart – September 7, 1890

                I would like the little Jesus candles to be lit when I go to the chapter, would you like to go?... Please don't forget... I didn't put the new pink candles because these tell me more about the soul, they started to burn the day I took the habit, so they were pink and fresh. Papa (who had given them to me) was there and all was joy!... but now the color of rose is gone, is there still for the orphan of Beresina joys the color of rose here below? ... Oh ! no, for her there are only celestial joys... joys where all the created, which is nothing, gives way to the uncreated, which is reality...
                Do you understand your little girl?... Tomorrow she will be the bride of Jesus, tomorrow she will be the bride of the one whose face was hidden and whom no one recognized!... What an alliance, and what a future! ... Yes, I feel it, my wedding will be surrounded by angels, only Heaven will rejoice and also the little wife and her dear sisters!...
