Saint Mother Theodore Guerin
“What have we to do in order to be saints? Nothing extraordinary; nothing more than what we do every day. Only do it for [God’s] love…”
– Saint Mother Theodore Guerin
You might have more in common with a saint than you think. Meet Saint Mother Theodore Guerin. She’s a saint now, but during her life she was a real person who dealt with real problems. She didn’t want to take on the difficult mission of leaving France to start a congregation in the frontier of Indiana. However, her trust in Providence — the protective care of God — led her to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods where she accomplished amazing things.
We hope her story inspires and encourages you in your daily life.
