As the image depicts, Mathilde Bertrand-Boutle’ wrote a spiritual journal under the name of Lucie Christine, mother and widow of five children who became an Adoration Reparatrice sister. Here is part of her rule of life.
“I must always forgive.”
“I must love ardently the soul of my neighbor.“
“I must never make an observation or a reprimand whithout thinking of the pain it will give the person to whom I make it.”
“I must always reflect when I see the faults of others, how weak I am myself and how much I fall short of my own good intentions.”
–Lucie Christine, French mystic
“A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good; for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.” –Luke 6:45
