Sister Kathleen Erickson
We talk to Sister Kathleen Erickson about how she assumed as a girl she would get married and live on a farm... and then became a Sister of Mercy instead. Deeply concerned about justice, peace and the poor, her work has taken her to immigration detention centers, to scruffy border towns, and even into police custody as she protested nuclear weapons.

Sr. Kathleen Erickson is a Sister of Mercy of Omaha, Nebraska.

"In some strange way, every person is called to a level of spirituality, and maybe even mysticism. It isn't just for the nuns or the priests or special people. Every person is meant to discover their own deepest, deepest connection with the God within."
