Sharing faith experiences - I – Sr Lucy Kurien
Welcome to our special program on the Year of Faith, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, a series on the lives of Inspiring People and Witnesses of faith in the Catholic Church from around the world. These are people who lived their ordinary lives in extraordinary ways. Their unique stories inspire us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us to inspire our brothers and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Sr. Lucy Kurien from India, a religious nun who is the founder and director of a Charitable institution called Maher – a home for battered, exploited, destitute women and children. According to her, it is a home for sharing and caring; a home for peace and reconciliation; a home for unity in diversity, and a home for human growth and village development. Sr. Lucy hails from a traditional Catholic family in the Southern Indian state of Kerala. In the first part of this interview she speaks about her life with the poor, her inspiration, and her mission.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Sr. Lucy Kurien from India, shares with us her mission, her life with the poor and more.
