|2A OUR SUNDAY VISITOR December 21, 1952 The Observer Edition St. Yincenf s Jottings Charlotte had been away for a visit. Upon returning to St. Vin- cent's, she entered a side door and went directly to the Little Girl's parlor on the third floor. Sister soon learned the reason she came in so secretly. Charlotte had brought a little dog with her. Sister tried to explain to the child that we could not have a dog living with the little girls• But Charlotte refused to understand. With many tears and protests, the little dog was finally sent home. Next morning, Charlotte was helping Sister Secunda in the chap- el. Her heart was heavy and tears were very close to her eyes. She wanted that little dog. When the child told Sister Secunda the rea- son for her sadness, Sister put her arm around the child and took her to the Blessed Mother's altar. The two knelt down together. "Dear Blessed Mother, Charlotte feels bad," said Sister, "because it is impossible to keep her dog here. But I know she will offer it to you as a sacrifice. Then she will be happy again•" Charlotte looked at Sister and said, "Do you think the Blessed Mother heard what you said?" : "Yes, surely, Charlotte. God lets the saints in Heaven hear us when A AT CHRISTMAS TIME YEAR'S SUBSCRIPTION FOR we speak to them."
