Excerpt from The Life and Letters of Sister St. Francis Xavier (Irma Le Fer De La Motte): Of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana
A revised edition of the Life and Letters of Sister Saint Francis Xavier is especially welcome at this time, when the centennial celebration of Indiana's statehood has revived the memory and the worth of those who have laid the foundation of Indiana's position and power among the States of the Union.
The Life and Letters of Sister Saint Francis Ite freshens our memory, in a special manner, with the heroic deeds of those, who, in the designs of Wisdom Eternal, were destined to plant the seeds of faith, since then grown and still growing into the mighty tree of the Gospel. Looking only to God's glory and to the spread of His kingdom among men, it is not surprising that they have written so little concerning themselves. Fortunately, in the correspondence preserved and here presented, we have virtually an autobiography Of one of these great servants of God.
