October 7, 1827 ~ Philippine writes to the Religious of the Sacred Heart in Paris, "How I thank the Heart of Jesus with you for the great grace of the Society's approbation by the Holy See! What pure joy it brought us! It gives us courage to suffer in order to sustain by our labors a work which God Himself directs and in which by His gracious bounty He has given us a share. Each new foundation brings us renewed happiness, for it increases the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
