beloved Therese how a part of me died,
When your tiny heart stopped and I cried and I cried,
Could the love of a father bring life you would be,
Alive at this moment, in my arms, close to me,
Burning tear upon tear still falls to the ground,
In vain I still look but you cannot be found!
Angels have borne you to Mary and she,
In Unspeakable love holding you waits for me.
Your Most Loving Father
Totally Faithful to the Sacred
Deposit of Faith entrusted to the Holy See in Rome
opera tua ... quia modicum habes virtutem, et servasti verbum
Meum, nec non negasti Nomen Meum
know your works ... that you have but little power, and
yet you have kept My word, and have not denied My Name.
