Today, July 14,is the Feast of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American canonized to sainthood. She is the patron saint to Indigenous Americans and ecology.

She lived by the motto “Who will teach me what is most pleasing to God, that I may do it?”

Like her, let us live our lives with a God focus and concern for others.

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us!
