Reviews - What do customers think about Seven Principles of Sainthood: Following St. Mother Theodore Guerin?

Opening our hearts to the 7 principles.........  Jun 3, 2008
Oh, to be able to emulate the Saints! To be truly able to put into our daily lives, the practice of these principles. Perhaps we can, and within the covers of this wonderful book, Ms. Doyle gives us the gentle teachings from which to start.

Saint Mother Theodore Guerin was the foundress of the Sisters of Providence in Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana. The road which took a simple country girl from France into the rather rugged Indiana country during the 1840's was one that perhaps few could follow. Starting with barely nothing, Saint Mother Theodore began an order, orphanges, academy, and served that part of the population of the Midwest at a time where struggling was truly exemplified. And she did so, with her eyes constantly on Our Lord and Savior, and His Teachings.

After reading this most revealing look at the life and times of this great Saint, you cannot go away without realizing how much she suffered and sacrificed during a time of no convenience. You realize how much we are blessed with in our lives, so much so, that it would be remiss to think that we could not at least attempt to incorporate these seven principles into our daily tasks. Ms. Doyle has made this journey for us as simple and pure as possible.

Having attended St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, Ms. Doyle had been given access to the archives and writings of Saint Mother Theodore. It is then through her study of this great Saint, that she presents us the simply stated, but intrinsically stirring, foundations of sainthood. They are:

1-Pray with the Saints
2-Trust in Providence
3-Spread the Word
4-Lead by Serivng
5-Be Just and Kind
6-Forgive Like Jesus
7-Strive for Humility

She also includes a most valuable timeline of Saint Mother Theodore's life and canonization as well as some of Mother Theodore's favorite prayers.

Each chapter begins with a scriptural passage that leads perfectly into the Principle. The content of the Prinicple is filled with stories and examples of how Saint Mother Theodore used all aspects of her daily spiritual and working life to honor God and to give to Him that which He asks of us. Amid times of great trial and suffering in her life, she never took her eyes off the path that He set before her and she strove even harder to offer these same trials and sufferings to Him as He did for us, in His Passion and Crucifixion. Each chapter ends with ways in which to act out the Principle in our everyday lives. I found many ways that I hadn't even thought of as well as those that truly challenged my current way of thinking.

I particularly found Principle Seven (Humility) to be the most profound and most challenging because it requires us to release the pains and offenses that we experience from others, while at the same time, realizing how we could have offended others during our lifetime and hoping that we have been forgiven as well.

You will find this latest offering from Ms.Doyle to be challenging in its demands of us as children of God, but also helping the reader understand that it is not impossible. After all, "with God, all things are possible".
