In Her Footsteps: The Story of Kateri Tekakwitha

October 10, 2012
Here's what you've been waiting for! At last, all of us here at Salt + Light Television are happy to bring you a sneak peak at our latest documentary. We hope you enjoy the following trailer!
For 350 years, a young Christian Mohawk woman has been interceding for and inspiring natives and non-natives around the world. Written accounts from Jesuit missionaries in the late 17th century emphasize her virtuous life, devotion to chastity, hatred of sin and self, extreme practices of penance as well as hundreds of accounts of miracles after her death at the age of 24.
At her beatification on June 22, 1980 in St. Peter's Basilica, Pope John Paul II described her last days as "an ever clearer manifestation of her solid faith, straightforward humility, calm resignation, and radiant joy, even in the midst of terrible sufferings. Her last words, simple and sublime, whispered at the moment of death, sum up, like a noble hymn, a life of purest charity: Jesus, I love you." On October 2012, Kateri Tekakwitha became the first Native woman to be recognized as a Saint.
This moving documentary takes us on a journey from northern New York State to Montrèal and Kahnawà:ke, QC; from Washington State to New Mexico, as we follow St. Kateri's incredible journey of deep faith, heroic sacrifice and love of Christ. Featuring many people who have been touched by her -including the little boy who received the miraculous healing that led to her canonization- the film shows that no one is too simple or too young to follow Christ, and that this woman, whose face was scarred and vision was weak, is still a source of Grace and healing for all.
Join us for our world television premiere of In Her Footsteps: The Story of Kateri Tekakwitha on Sunday, October 21 at 8:00pm ET/9:00pm PT.
