Historical context in the 16th century
Sister “Marie de l’Incarnation” chose her name. It is in Jesus Christ that Madame Acarie recognizes both God, whom she adores, and the man Jesus-God, an example to be imitated in everything.
Madame Acarie is part of the movement of this great century which has seen, not without disputes and controversies, the development of frequent communion.
Everything, every day, is for her the presence of God and life transformed in this presence, whatever the many human demands..
This grace of identification with Suffering Christ is granted to some so that they “complete in their flesh what is lacking in the Passion of Christ for his Body which is the Church” (Col 1,24)
Humility : “this is the shortest and most certain way to go to God” she said.
The relationship of Mary of the Incarnation to Sacred Scripture made her a mistress of spiritual life in the tradition of Reformed Carmel.
