Sandra Scroggins: “Thank you Mother Theodore”
This Rooted for Tomorrow story was contributed by Sandra Scroggins for the 175th anniversary of the Sisters of Providence arriving in Indiana.
In November 2006 I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and was near death. So began a year of treatment and trials. Also that month Mother Theodore Guerin was canonized in Rome. In the months that followed I was the recipient of many prayers for healing by the Sisters of Providence. In fact, a dear friend who is Presbyterian had a dream about Mother Theodore, who told her not to worry about me because I was going to be okay! That was eight years ago and I am completely healed. Thank you Mother Theodore and the Sisters of Providence!
