The Lord is king; he is robed in majesty. — Psalm 93:1
Mass Readings: Isaiah 6:1-8 / Matthew 10:24-33
A lot of communities will be celebrating today. Late last year it was announced that Blessed Kateri (1656-1680) will become St. Kateri. She was the daughter of a Christian Algonquin mother and a Mohawk father in upstate New York. She’ll become the first Native American to be canonized. The miracle attributed to her intercession was the recovery of 5-year-old boy from the rare and potentially fatal disease, necrotizing fascilitis ( flesh-eating bacteria). The family lives in our own Archdiocese of Seattle and is part Native American.
Like St. Therese of Lisieux, who also died at the age of 24, Kateri is a good reminder for those of us who are no longer young that holiness, that saintliness, can be found among members of all generations.
Prayer: Dear Kateri, help me be a good example to young members of my family.
