An American Saint


Today we celebrate the feast day of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American to be canonized a saint. St. Kateri exemplified the meaning of being true to one’s faith, being true to Jesus Christ and to His Church on earth.  May we take time today to thank Him for His saving graces, and  ask Him for the power to discern how to better bring His message to a world sorely in need.

All things are possible with Him if we allow him into our lives.  Be like Saint Kateri, and let Him in.

Saint Kateri – pray for us for we are in need of His Graces.  Protect all people from the evil one and let the guiding principle of Christianity – Love one another (John 15:12) – be the guiding principle of this world.  Amen.
