A week later, Eugene wrote again to the young community superior to repeat and underline the same guiding themes:
Don’t be unfaithful to the theological conferences prescribed by the Rule. I have no intention of giving anyone in any house a dispensation. Be firm about this in your community.
Make some summer arrangements for your district. A man can’t work the whole year through without taking a break from ministry.
Goodbye. dear Father Guigues. You don’t write often enough. With my affectionate greetings and blessing.
Letter to Bruno Guigues, 9 June 1835, EO VIII n 518
