Sister Hosea Rupprecht, FSP, is a member of the Daughters of St. Paul, a religious community dedicated to evangelization with the media. She hails from Renton, Washington (near Seattle). At age nine, her Dad took her to see what we now call Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. This—and the voracious reading of Hardy Boys books—cemented a love of story in Sr. Hosea. When Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark came out in 1981, she wasn’t allowed to see it so, like any enterprising teenager, she went to see it with some friends without telling her parents. It was during this time that she realized how influential media stories can be and that the “greatest story ever told,” that of Jesus Christ, could also be told using the media. It’s no coincidence that the Holy Spirit led her to the Daughters of St. Paul.
