Women’s History Month: Mother Theodore’s travels
Saint Mother Theodore Guerin’s trip from Ruillé, France, to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods was an arduous one. Mother Theodore traveled by most of the “modern” forms of transportation at that time — ship, train, stagecoach, canal boat — and survived!
In her journal, she wrote about traveling by stagecoach: “The coach jolted so terribly as to cause large bumps on one’s head. This day, indeed, we danced without a fiddle all afternoon. The road was really dreadful.”
