Little child, brave warrior

In the mail box today was a hand written letter from a woman in Canada who is imprisoned for peacefully protesting abortion. I wrote her and enclosed a drawing by DD1. In her return letter, written in a prison cell, she quoted St. Thérèse of Lisieux:

________________________________________

“Je veux t’aimer comme un petit enfant.

Je veux lutter comme un guerrier vaillant.”

(Poesies 184)

“I want to love you like a little child.

I want to fight like a brave warrior.”

[Poetry 165, St. Thérèse of Lisieux]

That sums it up.
