I do not know if the hour has come for me “to pass from this world to my Father” [Jn 13:1], but He is drawing me very strongly! To you, who have always been my confidant, I know I can tell everything: the prospect of going to see Him whom I love in His ineffable beauty, and of being immersed in the Trinity that was already my Heaven here below, fills my soul with immense joy.
