Kateri Tekakwitha is first Native American saint

Posted: Tuesday, Nov 6th, 2012

In the month of March, 2006 a six-year-old boy was lying on his bed. His parents were devastated, thinking they might lose their son. His parents were so desperate to get help, they turned to blessed Kateri Tekakwitha and they called the main office in Montana and asked the director Sister Kateri Mitchell if she could bring blessed Kateriís first class relic to pray for their son. Sister Kateri Mitchell immediately went to Seattle Childrenís Hospital and prayed for the little boy. Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha interceded for the little boy and he began to heal. Today, he is 12 years old and in good health.

The Pope Benedict XVI accepted this miracle and on Oct. 21, 2012 Pope Benedict XVI canonized blessed Kateri Tekakawitha to Saint Tekakawitha. Saint Kateri Tekakwitha is the first Native American Indian woman to become a saint and she is Mohawk from New York.

This is a wonderful happening. All Natives have come annually for so many years to pray for her sainthood. Our prayers are finally answered. Thank you, God.

I love You.
