Once again we are joined by the fantastic Dr. Matthew Bunson! We discuss his new work which brings us the life of “St. Kateri: Lily of the Mohawks”. The humble daughter of a Mohawk chief and a Roman Catholic mother, Kateri (named after St. Catherine of Siena) Tekakwitha lived a short life (she died at the age of 24). But she was such a powerful witness, so much so, that even the famed “black robe” Jesuit missionaries were awed “by her perfection of the virtues, her mystical prayer life, and her total love for Christ.” Her last words were: “Jesus, I love you.” No one tells a story like Dr. Bunson, and he doesn’t fail to captivate this time when describing the life of this remarkably holy woman.
