Her message

The unconditional love of God for every individual

Although Marthe Robin showed nothing of the suffering that tormented her, she did not do it to demonstrate her own heroism or so that people would praise her for her courage, but to ensure that nothing would block the river of love that flowed from God through her to each one of her visitors.

One should never reject a soul that God brings to us because he always does it for some important reason.

The thousands of testimonies about the way Marthe received those who came to see her were unanimous: Marthe welcomed each person as a unique individual, did not have set phrases and really took the time to make each person welcome. She asked questions, was interested in her interlocutor and listened attentively to what they had to say.

A person, who came to see her many times, said :
« [If only you knew] the sense of trust and how comfortable it felt to be with such a loving and attentive person, who made God present and led you to him in a very simple way!" »

Marthe led others to contemplate the love of the Father

Rather than showing the extent of Christ's suffering to her peers through her own body tortured by illness, Marthe showed the love of the Father. She provided a glimpse of the great hope that inspired her.

One cannot imagine the amount of suffering and sins that Marthe's visitors confided in her during her life! And yet, she never condemned anybody; She would always show the path of the God's mercy, without taking the easy route of playing down the sin disclosed. She preferred to focus on the Lord's infinite capacity for forgiveness and love: « O my Jesus, so many sins! But your mercy is infinite», she wrote.

She gave encouragement and restored hope

For her, there was no such thing as a "hopeless" case. In welcoming someone she would, above all, encourage and find a way of restoring hope. But her words would do more than simply invite the person to be positive. Marthe would prompt a movement of trust in God rooted in the certainty that he is the Master of the impossible and can triumph over the greatest evil: « The mercy of God surpasses all his works, and he performs his greatest masterpieces of love in the midst of the greatest human misery. »


«The mercy of God surpasses all his works, and he performs his greatest masterpieces of love in the midst of the greatest human misery.»

Meeting Marthe

Although every conversation with Marthe was unique, they followed a common pattern...

Marthe was filled with compassion. She listened to people's accounts of suffering to the point of crying sometimes. She knew how to console people in an exceptionally loving way. She was entrusted with many prayer intentions and the power of her intercession was often perceptible. Seemingly desperate situations, in many different domains, would be resolved or sorted out after she prayed.

Through these countless lives that were transformed by meeting her, God made the gift of his mercy tangible and came to meet every person, regardless of their circumstances.

I now know the purest joy, that of living for others and for their happiness.
