Saint Théodore Guérin

Admin 20:22 0 Comments

The 3rd of October is the feast day of Saint Théodore Guérin.

Saint Théodore Guérin lived between 1798 till 1856 and is also known as Saint Theodora. She was born in Etables, France near the end of the French revolution. From her youth she knew she wanted to be a nun, but delayed her entry into the vocation due to the depression her mother suffered after the murder of her father when she was 15 and the death of her two siblings. Saint Theodore took over the household tasks and also cared for her mother and her remaining sister. At the age of 25 she gained her mother's consent to enter the religious life and she joined the Sisters of Providence. The Sisters of Providence took care of the poor, sick, the dying and educated children. She was asked to head a group of missionary sisters to establish her order in the United States of America in 1840. This was to serve the pioneers in Indiana. She reached the Saint Mary of the Woods and stayed in a tiny log chapel with five other sisters.  Less than a year after, she started Saint Mary of the Woods College, the first women's Liberal Arts college in the United States which is still active today. She founded many other schools, pharmacies and orphanages in Indiana. In 1998 she was beatified by Pope John Paul II and in 2006 canonised by Pope Benedict XVI.

Dear children, I am speaking to you as a mother - with simple words, but words filled with much love and concern for my children who, through my Son, are entrusted to me. And my Son, who is of the eternal now, He is speaking to you with words of life and is sowing love in open hearts. Therefore, I am imploring you, apostles of my love, have open hearts always ready for mercy and forgiveness. According to my Son, always forgive your neighbors, because in that way peace will be in you. My children, care for your soul, because it alone is what truly belongs to you. You are forgetting the importance of family. A family does not need to be a place of suffering and pain, but a place of understanding and tenderness. Families who strive to live according to my Son live in mutual love. While He was still little, my Son would say to me that all people are His brothers. Therefore, remember, apostles of my love, that all people whom you meet are family to you - brothers according to my Son. My children, do not waste time thinking about the future, worrying. May your only concern be how to live well every moment according to my Son. And there it is - peace for you! My children, do not ever forget to pray for your shepherds. Pray that they can accept all people as their children; that, according to my Son, they may be spiritual fathers to them. Thank you!
