Description: Twenty years ago, four women from Tennessee founded an order of religious sisters - the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. Their mission now stretches across the country. They've taught countless students, developed the Education in Virtue series and even appeared on Oprah. Co-founder Sr Joseph Andrew joins us with their story.

African-American Sainthood and the Beauty of Everyday Holiness (2 segments)
Description: February is Black History Month, and we'll be hearing a lot about the lives of Rosa Parks, Frederick Douglass, George Washington Carver and countless others who made remarkable contributions to society. But you probably won't hear much about the lives of African American saints. There are currently six active sainthood causes for Americans of African descent, and they all are beautiful examples of how to live holy lives amid the ordinary circumstances of life. We'll hear about them with Matthew Bunson.
