MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus


May-June (?) 1888
The postman of little Jesus is very good, I send him all my love and my kisses. I will take the wine he gives me with happiness, thinking that it comes from the cellar of the Child Jesus.
My darling little Father, it is you who are the postman of Jesus, I know it well. Oh ! thank you... how good you are to me!
Yes, I will always remain your little queen and I will try to bring you glory by becoming a great saint.
Thérèse of the Child Jesus, the brilliant diamond and the very fine little pearl embrace you well.
Someone has just shown me birds, oh! my darling little Father, how good you are. There are three birds, one for the diamond, one for the fine pearl and one for Papa's little queen, she will try to do her best to look a bit like her King.
