Therese's correspondence LT 195 – To Sister Marie de Saint-Joseph – September 8-17, 1896 (fragments)

MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus
Mary of Saint Joseph


Sept. 8-17 (?) 1896


                The little brother thinks like the little Child...
                The most painful, the most LOVELY martyrdom is ours since Jesus alone sees it.
                It will never be revealed to creatures on earth, but when the Lamb opens the book of life, what astonishment for the Celestial Court to hear proclaimed with those of the missionaries and martyrs the names of poor little children who will never have dazzling actions...
                I continue to treat very sick hats.
