Quote

I believe Mother Theodore’s treasures were these: steadfast belief in Providence; an enduring and practical love of people – especially her sisters; and a sense of this place, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, as the deep well from which she drank in the presence, strength, and elaborate beauty of God.

December 6
“Were you not at Vincennes, Sister Theodore would not know whether we had daughters there or not. It seems something has made the atmosphere so cold that the ink is frozen.”
