Quote of the day: 29 February

I see him smiling at you from the very depth of the Tabernacle; oh! what a smile is that smile of the little Jesus… (Mother Agnès of Jesus, OCD, 29 February 1884)

The Chaplet of Practices

29 February 1884

My dear,

Here is the workbook, or rather the little preparation notebook. Are you happy? Oh! How I would like to be a witness to your happiness!

It was Madame Leroyer who gave me this pretty COVER and Sister Thérèse of St. Augustine (her only daughter) who embroidered it. You will have to pray for them on the day of your First Communion.

Bye-bye baby, be a little angel, yes nothing less than a little angel, Jesus in the Host wants to find Heaven in your childlike heart.

I see him smiling at you from the very depth of the Tabernacle; oh! what a smile is that smile of the little Jesus…

As for me, I send you all my kisses and the blessing of your beloved Mother to encourage you to plant flowers.

Sister T. of St. Augustine gave me this little CHAPLET OF PRACTICES for you. Marie will explain to you how to use it.

Your Agnès

Thank my darling little Father for his excellent fish this morning.

Mother Agnès of Jesus, O.C.D. (Pauline Martin)
