Saint Mary of the Incarnation - Widow, Ursuline nun (1599-1672).
Marie Guyart Martin was born in Tours, France. When Mary was eighteen, her parents believed she was ready to get married with Claude Martin and she gave birth to a son. Six months later, the Lord marked her with the seal of His predilection and she was visited by the cross of widowhood, with all its trials. Mary of the Incarnation felt strongly attracted to the religious life.
