Best wishes for the Feast of the Holy Innocents

28 December 1978

My dearest Brothers,
This is to wish you the best on your feast of the Holy Innocents – as the little Society of the Brothers of the Word is still only a little Babe as the Babe of Bethlehem.
My prayers for you is that each one of you having given all to Christ you may also give your life in a Martyr’s death as the little ones did.
Pray much for Mother as I do for you.

God bless you.
Mother


You are always in my prayers

Yemen, 4 August 1981

My dearest Brothers, Br. Sebastian and all in Rome,
This brings you Mother’s love, blessing and prayer for each one of you – that you may grow in the likeness of Christ through love and humility and so proclaim the Holiness of God to all you meet.
You are very much in my prayer – that you really become so free that Jesus may live His life to the full in you.
I hope you have met Archbishop Mayer and ask him. I am still waiting for His Golden Jubilee gift.
On Saturday I leave for Africa – so pray for me.
Happy and Holy feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Cause of our joy

God bless you.
Mother
