Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha

About Saint Kateri Tekakwitha

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha was born in 1656 to an Algonquin mother and an Iroquois father. Her mother was a captive of the Iroquois at the time. Saint Kateri’s mother was a Christian but kept this fact hidden from her captors. She did not have Saint Kateri or her brother baptized for fear of what the Iroquois might do to them.

Smallpox Epidemic

While Saint Kateri was just a child, a smallpox epidemic raged through the Iroquois village. The disease took her father, mother, and brother. Saint Kateri was the only one to survive the disease.

St Kateri Patron Saint

Saint Kateri Adopted

Saint Kateri was adopted by her uncle who urged her to marry an Iroquois warrior who was her age. She refused because she knew how cruel the Iroquois were.

In 1675, a Jesuit missionary named Father Jacques de Lamberville, saw Saint Kateri near the Mohawk River. He described her as a “beautiful lily”. Saint Kateri later became known as Kateri, Lily of the Mohawk. Father Jacques took her to live at the St. Francis Xavier Mission close to Montreal. Saint Kateri received her First Communion in 1676 on Christmas Day.

Saint Kateri Vows Chastity

Saint Kateri vowed a life of chastity and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary on the feast of the Annunciation in 1679. She carried her rosary wherever she went for the rest of her life. Saint Kateri became weak from the extreme penances she imposed upon herself.

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Dies

Saint Kateri quietly died in 1680 during Holy Week. As she passed away, she spoke the names of Jesus and Mary. Shortly after her death, miracles were attributed to her.

Saint Kateri Canonized

Pope Pius XII beatified Kateri in 1943 because of her virtues and heroic life. Polish prisoners during WWII told of the appearance of Saint Kateri. They said she informed them that she was named Kateri Tekakwitha patron saint of Poland. The men were released from the prison camp shortly after her appearance.

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha was canonized in 1991.
