Tomorrow is the feast day of St. Kateri Tekakwitha. She was born in a Mohawk village in 1656. When Kateri was four, a smallpox epidemic killed her mother, father and younger brother, leaving Kateri with impaired vision and a scarred complexion. An uncle and some aunts raised her. Kateri was a hard worker, leading a quiet life because of her limited vision, but helping her community with the harvest, wood-gathering, sewing, and her many hours of prayer. She died on April 17, 1680, at the age of 24. She was canonized on October 21, 2012.
Thank you for the example of St. Kateri
who teaches us that prayers are important
and that we can all do small things to make this world a better place.
May St. Kateri look upon us and offer our prayers to you.
Through Christ our Lord,
