A Belief in Providence: A Life of Saint Theodora Guerin
By Julie Young

Mother Theodore Guérin was a pioneer on the Indiana frontier and the founder of the Sisters of Providence at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. A Belief in Providence: A Life of Saint Theodora Guérin, a youth biography, explores the life of the woman who would become Indiana’s first saint. Born in France, Guérin joined the Sisters of Providence, came to the United States to found an establishment near Terre Haute, Indiana. Despite poor health, primitive frontier conditions, and dealings with a contentious archbishop, she founded Saint Mary-of the-Woods College and opened schools in Jasper, Madison, and Vincennes. The book also examines the process leading to Guérin’s canonization on October 15, 2006.
