by Emily Cavins

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Even before Kateri Tekakwitha's canonization on October 21, 2012, many had been inspired by the story of the young Native American mystic who lived in the Mohawk Valley during the seventeenth century. With Emily Cavins's skill for weaving together historical facts and a compelling story, readers will discover Kateri's path to sainthood against the backdrop of her life as a Native American in New York. These pages will reveal: - What led to Kateri's desire to become a Christian - Her piety and self-denial in the face of persecution and illness - Her impact on the Catholic Mohawk community - The long road to sainthood, including two miracles attributed to Kateri. More than just a compelling story of Kateri's short life, readers will also learn how to avail themselves of Kateri's intercession, why Kateri has become known as the patron saint of the environment, and of her connection to St. Francis of Assisi.
