Memorial of St. Kateri Tekakwitha

In Canada we celebrate the Memorial of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, Patroness of Canada, on April 17, the date of her death in 1680.  St. Kateri, known as the “Lily of the Mohawks” lived a short life filled with pain, but lived it with faith and a deep devotion to God.  May we all learn from St. Kateri how to walk humbly with God through every challenge and joy of our lives.
