The Autobiography of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (The Little Flower), a Carmelite sister.
For years I had cherished a longing which seemed impossible of realization—to have a brother, a Priest. I often used to think that if my little brothers had not gone to Heaven, I should have had the happiness of seeing them at the Altar. I greatly regretted being deprived of this joy, yet God went beyond my dream. I only asked for one brother who would remember me each day at the Holy Altar and He has united me in the bonds of spiritual friendship with two of His apostles. I should like to tell you, dear Mother, how Our Divine Master fulfilled my desire.
In 1895 our holy Mother, St Teresa, sent my first brother as a gift for my feast. It was washing day and I was busy at my work, when the Prioress called me aside and read me a letter from a young Seminarian, in which he said he had been inspired by St Teresa to ask for a sister who would devote herself especially to his salvation and to the salvation of his future flock. He promised always to remember this spiritual sister when saying Mass and the choice fell upon me.
Dear Mother, I cannot tell you how happy this made me. Such unlooked for fulfillment of my desire awoke in my heart the joy of a child; it carried me back to those early days, when pleasures were so keen, that my heart seemed too small to contain them. Years had passed since I had tasted a like happiness, so fresh, so unfamiliar, as if forgotten chords had been stirred within me. Fully aware of my obligations, I set to work and strove to redouble my fervor. Now and again I wrote to my new brother.
Undoubtedly, it is by prayer and sacrifice that we can help our missionaries, but sometimes, when it pleases Our Lord to unite two souls for His Glory, lie permits them to communicate their thoughts and thus inspire each other to love God more.
