We often cause pain to one another on account of the difference of our dispositions and natural inclinations.


Saint Mother Theodore Guerin founded the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in 1840. She was born in France in 1798 and died in the United States in 1856, having lived the last 16 years of her life as a missionary teacher and healer in the Indiana wilderness. A strong leader and an even stronger woman of faith, Saint Mother Theodore and her many words of wisdom shared in her journals and letters continue to inspire people of today.
