She thought she was too young to be a missionary. Our Lord assured her that He would make her His missionary and that she would have to pay a certain price for souls. "I want you," said Jesus, "to earn three golden coins a day." Our Lord then explained what He meant by golden coins.
- The first golden coin was her prayers to Him for souls.
- The second golden coin was her little sacrifices, especially acts of obedience.
- The third golden coin was a promise "never to miss Mass or Holy Communion through your own fault and to visit Me often in the Blessed Sacrament."
