Making Saints with Fr. Molinari

October 14, 2012
Fr. Paolo Molinari, S.J., is an Italian Jesuit who has spent most of his life in Rome as a Postulator for the Causes of Blesseds and Saints. One of his most significant "cases" was that of the young, Native American woman, Kateri Tekakwitha, "Lily of the Mohawks," who will be canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday, October 21, 2012. This comes over 350 years after her heroic life was lived out in what is now upstate New York and also along the south shore of Montreal, in Quebec.
This wide-ranging conversation includes details about the miracles that were required for Kateri's beatification by Blessed John Paul II in 1980, as well as her canonization in 2012. This interview was filmed at the Infirmary of the international headquarters of the Society of Jesus in Rome on March 27, 2012.
