by Sister Julie Ann on August 21, 2008

Gain more insights into the goodness of the Kauai, HI island folk of  St. Theresa Parish and the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity who live and serve with them.

All of the major Hawaiian islands have Lei Day festivals. Don’t miss the scenes from the children’s May Day Program that celebrates Lei Day.

beach-6.jpgKeith Warner OFM offers a reflection on what it means to follow in the footsteps of Jesus and leave footprints (on the beach or on any kind of earthy soil):

What does it mean to leave footprints? One has to have feet for walking, and Francis is well known for his devotion to the humanity of Christ. Second, one must travel or go on a journey to leave such marks behind. Third, footprints are clues to the means of locomotion and direction of the traveler. Even though he did travel by boat and mule, Jesus mostly walked, and by following his footprints, one can determine the path he took. Lastly, in order for others to follow his footprints, Jesus had a leave a mark where he traveled. For Francis, the world is capable of receiving the footprints of God’s son, of holding markings which lead us in the way to the Father.

What is stirring in your heart after viewing this podcast? Where is God leading you to leave your footprints?

  1. Footprints…like fingerprints, are distinctly ours! The podcasts have shown that each of the Sisters also has a unique personality with the common ground of a shared spirit of service to the wonderful folk of this island paradise of faith. It has been an inspiration to listen to each part of the story. The Lord bless you.

  3. The video is very well done, giving a good overview of the life of the Sisters in Hawaii. The Sisters do such a great job of giving of themselves to the Parish and community. May God bless them and give them the graces they need.
