Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, foundress of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Ind., has been called a visionary, a model of virtue, and a source of inspiration and hope. Hers is a story of strength and prayer; challenge and humility; sorrow and peace.

In 1998, the world came to know what Sisters of Providence have known for years. In October of that year, Pope John Paul II granted the title of "Blessed" to Mother Theodore, signifying that she is a holy woman worthy of honor and veneration.
