Title: WOMEN WHO INSPIRE: GIFT OF KATARINE DREXEL / WORK OF GOD'S HANDS: A VIDEO ON MOTHER TERESA FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
Description:
This single DVD includes two programs about strong women who founded religious congregations which were groundbreaking in their attention to previously underserved populations. Both serve as courageous examples of commitment to social justice. THE GIFT OF KATHARINE DREXEL This program is a dramatic film on the life of a dynamic American whose concern for the recognition and personal fulfillment of Native Americans and African Americans was far ahead of her time. St. Katharine Drexel (1858-1955) founded the order of Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament to serve the desperate need she saw in the South and on the Indian reservations of her day. The film provides a moving insight into the evolution of a religious vocation. St. Katharine Drexel became the second American-born saint during the canonization ceremony celebrated by Pope John Paul II on October 1, 2000. JH-A 28 min.
