This authoritative account of the first Native American woman to be declared a saint by the Church is sure to inspire you. Discover an extraordinary young woman who was called by Blessed Pope John Paul II God's "bountiful gift" to his Church.
The daughter of Mohawk chief and a Catholic mother, Kateri (baptized Catherine) Tekakwitha (1656-1680) forms a unique bridge between the Native American community and the Church. Kateri was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1980 and canonized in 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI.
Kateri Tekakwitha's faith and love for Christ in the face of overwhelming hostility and her own debilitating illnesses will encourage you as you seek God's grace to overcome challenges in your own life! She is a powerful role model and a shining example that God's call to holiness is truly universal and is heard by men and women in all walks of life and all ages.
Written by experienced and prolific authors Matthew and Margaret Bunson, Saint Kateri: Lily of the Mohawks is the most definitive biography of Kateri Tekakwiha.
