Who was St. Kateri?
Saint Kateri Tekakwitha , known as Lily of the Mohawks (1656 – April 17,
1680), is a Roman Catholic Saint, who was an Algonquin–Mohawk virgin
penitent and laywoman. Born in Auriesville (now part of New York), she
survived smallpox and was left with scars on her face and body when cured. She
was orphaned as a child, then baptized as a Roman Catholic and settled for the
last years of her life at the Jesuit mission village of Kahnawake, south of
Montreal in New France, now Canada.
Tekakwitha professed a religious vow of chastity until her death at the age of
24. After her death, the scars on her face allegedly cleared. Known for her
virtue of chastity and corporal mortification of the flesh, as well as being
shunned by her tribe for her religious conversion to Catholicism, she is the
fourth Native American to be venerated in the Roman Catholic Church. She
was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1980 and canonized by Pope Benedict XVI
at Saint Peter's Basilica on October 21, 2012. Various miracles and
supernatural events are attributed to her intercession.
