Bare Feet and Theology

00:00

November 28-December 5 Podcast

Julia Prinz, V.D.M.F., and John Endres, S.J., discuss their visit to communities of women religious in Asia.
When John Endres, S.J., and Julia Prinz, V.D.M.F., traveled to Asia in 2009 with a delegation from the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, they were not sure to expect. Their trip gave them unique insights into the lives of their students, in particular women religious, who travel from the Pacific Rim to study theology in Berkeley. They witnessed women working closely with the poor and practicing a theology that grew from the culture. Sr. Prinz and Fr. Endres recently spoke about their journey at a "Theology in the City" lecture sponsored by JSTB. Pictured above: novices of the Daughters of St. Anne, in Ranchi, Jharkanland, India.
