Here is a timeline covering the major events of the 19th Century and some events

Here is a timeline covering the major events of the 19th Century and some events that probably didn’t seem that important at the time, but which have had a long term effect. God never abandons His people, no matter how far we drift, or even run screaming, from Him. Into the mess of the new ideas and terrible wars, rebellions and death that poured out in that century, God called quiet, gentle people like St Catherine Laboure, Elizabeth Anne Seton and the Ratisbonne brothers. Church events are written in blue.
