St. Kateri Tekakwitha

On July 14, we celebrated the feast day of the Lily of the Mohawks.   I had ordered this DVD.


In Her Footsteps, The Story of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, is more of a documentary that takes the viewer to the beautiful woods of Albany, NY and Quebec, Canada where St. Kateri lived.  Where we did not learn more about St. Kateri, we did hear beautiful stories of her miracles.  I purchased it through Amazon, here.

The older girls watched it and liked it.  I'm not sure if early elementary age kids would sit still long enough to appreciate it.



St. Kateri, pray for us!

  2. As you know, we have a special reason to love St. Kateri. :) I will have to make note of this movie for Lily. I bet she would enjoy it since she enjoys everything she can read and learn about her patron Saint.

  3. Hi Patty! My Mom had a real devotion to St. Kateri. When we visited Santa Fe, we saw a large statue of her outside the cathedral. There is a large Indian population there, and she is an inspiration to them for sure.
    Blessings,

    1. Funny you should mention that, Ceil, but the Bishop of Santa Fe is on the documentary!
