This unit is intended to introduce you to a remarkable Carmelite woman who is little known outside the French-speaking world but deserves wider recognition. She enables us to appreciate further the diversity of expressions of the Carmelite charism while reflection on her life encourages us to look at our own.

In the five units you will be looking at the following themes:

  1. An outline of her life;

  2. Her life as an example of mystical love in action;

  3. Humility;

  4. The Incarnation;

  5. The Eucharist.
