The story of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin The story of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin is one that must be told. She offers as powerful a role model for today's generation as she did for her contemporaries in the early 1800s. Her example of holiness and leadership is timeless. -From the Foreword On October 15, 2006, the Roman Catholic Church canonized Mother Theodore Guerin, making her only the eighth saint who lived and worked in the United States. In celebration of this momentous event, ACTA Publications offers The Eighth American Saint-a comprehensive and readable biography on this inspirational woman that will include a vivid, eye-witness account of the canonization ceremony. Saint Mother Theodore Guerin left a legacy of service, piety and faith across two continents. In France she inspired hope while serving as superior to the schools in the town of Soulaines. But it was in the fledgling United States that her abilities shone, as she founded a new congregation of the Sisters of Providence and built schools, orphanages, and even a pharmacy. Her memory lives on through Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in Indiana-the United States' oldest Catholic liberal arts college for women. The Eighth American Saint was originally published in 1959 under the title Faith Is the Substance by Katherine Burton. Burton's masterful biography recreates Mother Theodore's struggles, failures and triumphs. The Foreword and Afterword by Mary K. Doyle bring Mother Theodore's story full circle, providing a complete story of her life for a new generation of readers.
Born in France in 1798, Anne-Th?r?se Guerin served with the Sisters of Providence for seventeen years before being asked to lead a small missionary band of Sisters of Providence to the United States in 1840. She established a motherhouse in Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana. She overcame great trials, including prejudice against Catholics and a devastating fire, while building a strong congregation. By the time of her death in 1856 she had opened schools in towns throughout Indiana. The Eighth American Saint is a reissue of the book Faith Is the Substance, but it includes a new Foreword and Afterword by Mary K. Doyle that include a discussion and description of the canonization ceremony taking place on October 15, 2006.
