My dad is into antiques and he picked up a statue of a nun in full habit holding a quill and an open book. The book says, "omnia possum in eo Quime con for tat."

can anyone tell me what the translation means or who the statue may represent?

Thanks!

I can do all these things in him who strengtheneth me.

EDIT: Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini is the statue.
