Quote of the day, 15 February: Madame Acarie

He indeed is a miser for whom God does not suffice.

Blessed Mary of the Incarnation
Madame Acarie

After taking care of her husband Pierre until his death on 17 November 1613, and settling the inheritance, Barbe Acarie, aged forty-eight, entered the Carmel of Amiens on 15 February 1614, under the name of Sister Mary of the Incarnation. As a lay sister, she worked in the kitchen as much as her infirmities allowed her. With the agreement of the Prioress, she exercised a ministry of spiritual accompaniment to the Sisters, who asked for her help.

Olivier Rousseau, O.C.D.
