Amazing second retreat with even more amazing people πŸ’–πŸ’– #Redeemed #SaintKateri #GodLovesUs #SMLT

Today is the feast of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, patroness of the environment and ecology, and the first Native American saint!

The β€œLily of the Mohawks” was a virgin of the Mohawk tribe. Her parents and brother died of smallpox when she was four years old, and so she was adopted by her aunt. Smallpox still dotted her face and impaired her eyesight. Despite these obstacles, Tekakwitha shunned all marriage proposals and lived chastely.
In 1667, Jesuit missionaries arrived at her tribe, and it was then that she converted to Christianity, accepting baptism later.
Shunned and abused by relatives for her faith, Tekakwitha escaped to a cabin where she practiced austere mortifications and is said to have experienced union with God in prayer. Upon her death, a devotion to her started immediately among her people.
Today many pilgrims visit her grave in Caughnawaga, Quebec where a monument to her memory was erected in 1884. Pope John Paul II beatified her June 22, 1980. Pope Benedict XVI canonized her on October 21, 2012.

Happy feast of St. Kateri! A statue of this beautiful saint we carryπŸ™ŒπŸ‘! Kateri said: β€œI am not my own; I have given myself to Jesus. He must be my only love. The state of helpless poverty that may befall me if I do not marry does not frighten me. All I need is a little food and a few pieces of clothing. With the work of my hands I shall always earn what is necessary and what is left over I’ll give to my relatives and to the poor. If I should become sick and unable to work, then I shall be like the Lord on the cross. He will have mercy on me and help me, I am sure.” #zieglers #fczieglerco #stkateri #kateri #saintkateri #catholicartandgifts #catholic #saint #catholicism #nativeamerican #catholicchurch #patronsaint #catholicsaint #feastday #enviroment #simple #beautiful #humble #😍 #πŸ™

My big sister in faith, I look up to Saint Kateri as a shining example of humility, courage and love of Christ. This humble servant was courageous in the face of opposition to her life of faith even amongst her family and people. She dedicated herself, heart and soul to Christ above all others and strove to bring Him to others; teaching children to pray and tending to the elderly and sick. Although she passed April 17th, the day after my birthday, we commemorate her life and celebrate her feast day today. Happy Feast Day Saint Kateri!

As most of you may or may not know, the 'K' in my initials stands for Kateri, who is my patron saint. She is the 1st Native American saint and her courage and bravery throughout her life really impressed me as a child. Her story is very inspirational and I have always looked up to her as a role model. When I was supposed to pick my patron saint for Confirmation, I was torn between her and St. Catherine of Siena. The latter was such a hero and really showed the power and ability of a woman to change the course of history. I was debating between the two for a few weeks until I read that St. Kateri was also really impressed by St. Catherine and was actually baptized with St. Catherine's name. As it turns out, Kateri is the Mohawk form of Catherine. Jackpot! It was like 2 saints in 1. I was sold and so I picked Kateri.
Today is pretty special because it's the feast day of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha and ironically enough, Ash @ohmysoulissinging and I were in Siena, the hometown of St. Catherine. Ash and I were able to witness the incorruptible body of St. Catherine (her head and thumb are in the church).
I didnt get the best photos because photos aren't allowed inside in the church and I was in a rush when we left. The 3rd photo is the view from St. Catherine's house
