Therese's correspondence LT 262 – To Sister Geneviève – August 3, 1897

MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus
MARTIN Céline, Sister Geneviève of the Holy Face


3 August 1897
O my God, how gentle you are for the little victim of your Merciful Love! Now that You join external suffering to the trials of my soul, I cannot say: "The anguish of death has surrounded me" but I cry out in my gratitude: "I have descended into the valley of the shadow of death, yet I fear no evil: because you are with me, Lord!”

(To my beloved little Sister Geneviève of Ste Thérèse)
- August 3, 1897 - Ps XXII. 4.
