    $15.95
    Sometimes the answers aren't enough. Sometimes you want to know why they're the answers.

    Any Bible can answer questions. This is the one that explains why those answers are the answers.

    In twenty-five very compelling tabs spread throughout the Bible text, Prove It! The Catholic Teen Bible gives the why to the biggest questions of all. To the questions you've been asking your parents, your teachers, your friends yourself:

    What's life all about and where do I fit in?

    What's my life all about, and where do

    God, family, friends, and all the rest fit in?

    How do I know God even exists, and what

    do the life and death of Jesus have to do

    with me right here, right now?

    If God loves us all, why should I bother

    taking my Catholicism seriously?

    If all religions are pretty much the same,

    why be a Catholic at all?

    History of the Sisters of Providence Vol 1

    History of the Sisters of Providence Vol 1
    $10.00

    1806-1856
    Excerpt from the Preface: "The work of the Sisters of Providence in the Indiana woodland forms part of several diverse movements in the world of their day, first in Europe in the great resurgence of Catholic thought and activity in post-Revolutionary France and also in the far-flung missionary labors of France across the globe. In America the Sisters fitted as an integral part into the great western pioneer movement of settlement, development, and education; and their labors tied up intimately in particular with the diocese of Vincennes, which was only six years old when they reached Indiana. They bore their part also in the great work of assimilating and educating the new immigrant population, so largely Catholic, and exerted a powerful influence in commending the much-maligned Catholic religion to their Protestant pupils and their parents. When the little group of frightened Frenchwomen crossed the Wabash on that memorable afternoon in late October, 1840, to undertake their works of zeal and education in the thick Vigo County woods, they brought to Indiana a permanent and beneficent force destined to grow and wax more and more potent for good in many diverse fields."

    "This second volume of the history of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods covers the administrations of Mother Theodore's first four successors:  Mother Mary Cecilia Bailly, Mother Anastasie Brown, Mother Mary Ephrem Glenn, and Mother Euphrasie Hinkle--a period of over forty years.  The author, with candor and honesty, with true literary skill and clarity of expression, presents each administration with its joys and sorrows, its successes and sometimes insurmountable problems, all convincing the reader that Mother Theodore's successors had no clearcut path created for them either."

    The pages of this volume span a period of approximately 40 years in the history of the Congregation of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana--from 1890 when Mother Mary Cleophas Foley was elected General Superior for the first of her 6 terms of office, to 1928, the year of her death.  Prior to this time, however, 50 years of struggle, privation, and dedicated apostolic labor, in the fields of Christian education and basic health care, had prepared the ground for this later harvest of expansion and development.
