From the Yellow Notebook of Mother Agnès of Jesus
A little robin came and landed on her bed.
Léonie sent her the little music box we have preserved, and the tunes were so sweet, even though they were popular music, that she listened to them with pleasure.
Finally, someone brought her a bouquet of wildflowers for the anniversary of her Profession. Seeing herself so loaded with gifts, she wept with gratitude and said:
“It’s all God’s tenderness towards me: exteriorly, I’m loaded with gifts; interiorly, I’m always in my trial (of faith) . . . but also in peace.”
