Trust me. Have devotion to absolution. Find a few rays of light and warmth if there are any on your sacramental journey: some consolation from God if he sends you any. Just go forward and, if there should be some unexplored paths, some impenetrable darkness, some people who misunderstand you or leave you confused, find out why from God and from me. You know that I am slow to respond when things are going well. I will be prompt when you are suffering and in need.
With all my soul I bless you in our Lord.
To Mademoiselle Antonia Bost
