MY DEAREST LITTLE MOTHER, -- Your letter has done me such good. The sentence: |Let us refrain from saying a word which could raise us in the eyes of others,| has indeed enlightened my soul. Yes, we must keep all for Jesus with jealous care. It is so good to work for Him alone. How it fills the heart with joy, and lends wings to the soul! Ask of Jesus that Thérèse -- His grain of sand -- may save Him a multitude of souls in a short space of time, so that she may the sooner behold His Adorable Face.
