Once again we are joined by the fantastic Dr. Matthew Bunson! Â We discuss his new work which brings us the life of (http://www.discerninghearts.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Matthew-Bunson-266x300.jpg)"St. Kateri: Lily of the Mohawks". Â The humble daughter of a Mohawk chief and a Roman Catholic mother, Kateri (named after St. Catherine of Siena) TekakwithaÂ 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 Â "by her perfection of the virtues, her mystical prayer life, and her total love for Christ." Â Her last words were: "Jesus, I love you." Â No one tells a story like Dr. Bunson, and he doesn't fail to captivate this time when describing Â the life of this remarkably holy woman.
