Klappentext

Excerpt from Life of Venerable Mary of the Incarnation, Ursuline Religious and Foundress of the Monastery of Quebec, Canada

Whatever time was not employed in prayer the saintly child occupied in visiting the suffering poor, ministering to their wants and consoling them-in their af iction. Such pious inclinations are often the prelude of a vocation to the religious life; indeed, Marie Guyart. Had but reached her fourteenth year when she manifested the desire to enter a convent, but God had otherwise ordained for the time being.

Our heroine was about seventeen when her parents, after the approved fashion, sought out a suitor for their daughter's hand and speedily found one pleasing to them. It was with great distress that the servant of God listened to the disclosure of these plans for her future. However, so completely was she inured to obedience, ever consider ing her parents' desires as the will ofgod, that she offered no objection and was shortly after married to Claude Jo seph Martin, a respected tradesman of her native city. This event took place in 1616 and marks a new era in our heroine's life. We know but little of the two following years however, it appears from the writings of the Vene rable Mother that careful attention to the duties of her state did not prevent the young woman from leading a thoroughly devout life.
