SaintCast 16 Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha

Hope everyone in America had a great Independence Day, and my hopes for a great summer/winter, and a Blessed Feast of St. Benedict for the rest of the world’s listeners!

A great SaintCast “welcome” to the Technopriest, Fr. Bill Kessler, who paid a visit to our humble abode in Overland Park, Kansas. We got a chance to podcast together, and learned a little more about why he’s such a special Man of God. Our wish for a great retreat for Fr. Bill in Colorado. . .

A rousing speech from Kenneth Brannagh as Henry V, from the Battle of Agincourt in Shakespeare’s Henry V gave the answer to last week’s St. Jeopardy question, the Feast of Crispin or St. Crispin’s Day, October 25. More on Saint movies, including a trailer from the upcoming film on St. Francis Xavier.

We profile the first native American Blessed, Kateri Tekakwitha, whose feast we celebrate Friday. What an incredible witness to the faith she was! What conviction she demonstrated.

Coming up on the SaintCast, an interview with a Vatican insider, you’ve seen him on TV, a well known Vatican commentator on news networks, and author of several books on the Vatican, Pope Benedict, and Opus Dei. . Stay tuned, and Stay Subscribed!
