To Madeleine Sophie Barat

Madeleine Sophie Barat, R.S.C.J.
1779 - 1865

September 30, 1840 ~ Mother Duchesne writes to Mother Barat, "I thank you most sincerely for having at last lifted the burden I have carried so inefficiently and which would have been such a trial in my last hours.  I desire death and I fear it.  But God, Who is so good, will give me the means of expiating my faults, for I see quite clearly that crosses will follow me, though of quite another kind, if only that of exchanging a very busy life for one of complete inactivity."
