The gravestone of Mother Theodore

Saint Mother Theodore was a woman of courage, determination and compassion. Mother Theodore was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI in October 2006.

After the tragic deaths of both her brothers and her father, Saint Mother Theodore spent many years taking care of her mother and sister. Her deep desire to serve God would have to wait. At the age of 25 her mother finally allowed her to follow her dream and devote her life entirely to God.
