CC058: The Enduring Legacy of St. Kateri Tekakwitha

Why does the life of a young Algonquin-Mohawk woman from a 17th century mean so much to the Catholics of New Mexico and Arizona? In this episode, Bishop Wall takes a look at St. Kateri Tekakwitha, the first canonized Native American saint.

“When we look at the saints, and this our special saint, St. Kateri, we would imitate her as she imitates Christ, and one of those virtues, I would say, is not only being a faithful woman, but kindness, especially kindness towards others. And kindness is a mark of the Holy Spirit.” – Bishop James Wall
