St. Kateri Tekakwitha was a Mohawk woman who converted to Catholicism at age 19. She loved Jesus Christ with great devotion, and she fervently prayed for the conversion of her fellow Mohawks. St. Kateri died of an illness at age 24, and she was canonized in 2012, making her the first Native American to be recognized as a saint.
A Prayer for St. Kateri:
O Great Lily of the Mohawks, we ask that you take our intentions to the foot of the cross. Ask Jesus to bring healing to those who are heavily burdened. Through your intercession, may this favor be granted if it is according to the will of God. By your prayer, help us always to remain faithful to Jesus and to his Holy Church. St. Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us. Amen.
