My dear Céline, Would you be so kind as soon as possible to send me the fabric you bought to make me an apron. I would also need the Scottish sash you had for your disguise. Send me also all the clean white ribbons that you have, there is one that I had around my head on the day of my 1st Communion; you can also take the hat... All this is to represent Saint Agnès... Darling little sister, how good God is for you! If you could see what grace you received on Friday, I truly believe it's the grace you've been waiting for. You know, you said to me: but I didn't receive a decisive grace. I am convinced that this is the grace. Now you must be all for Jesus; more than ever he is all yours, he has already placed the mysterious engagement ring on your finger, he wants to be the sole master of your soul. Dear Sister, we are truly Sisters in the full sense of the word! Farewell ; from afar my heart reads in your heart. Therese of the Child Jesus. pcind. Kiss for me my incomparable King.
