Finally, a decision:
Hush! dear Tempier, I speak to you softly yet loud enough for you to hear. Yesterday, the 15th of the month of February of the year of grace 1826, the Congregation of Cardinals, assembled under the presidency of Cardinal Pacca, prefect, has unanimously approved the Rules, except for slight modifications proposed by the Cardinal ponent, the judgement of the Congregation being that our Holy Father the Pope grant the brief of approbation in good and due form.
Although this is a signal grace that the Lord is granting us, one that calls for our entire gratitude, I think it is opportune to put limits on the exterior tributes of our rightful sentiments and to defer manifesting them until our Holy Father will have approved the decision of the Congregation and will have ordered the brief to be sent…
Let us acknowledge that the conduct of divine Providence in this matter has been admirable and that none of us should ever become oblivious of how evident his protection has been
Letter to Henri Tempier, 16 February 1826, EO VII n 224
“I have often thought with wonder of the great goodness of God; and my soul has rejoiced in the contemplation of His great magnificence and mercy. May He be blessed for ever! For I see clearly that He has not omitted to reward me, even in this life, for every one of my good desires.” Saint Teresa of Avila
