Your letter of the 16th inst. received on Saturday. I presented your request for re-admission to our Institute and I am obliged to say that it has been refused. This decision of the Community is final.
You ask my advice as to what is best for you to do. You certainly understand your own position and know well what steps you must take to become reconciled with the Church if you have violated your vows. I am truly sorry for you and for your good, kind parents who have already had so many trials. I hope God will grant them grace and strength to bear all courageously and win the crown for which they are striving.
With an assurance of the aid of my poor prayers for you and them, I am most sincerely in the Sorrowful Heart of Mary our Mother.
