 Our Description

Saint Kateri
Lily of the Mohawks
by Matthew and Margaret Bunson

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 Pope Blessed John Paul II, God's "bountiful gift" to His Church and a "sweet, frail yet strong figure of a young woman who died when she was only twenty-four years old: Kateri Tekakwitha, the 'Lily of the Mohawks.'"

The daughter of a Mohawk chief and a Roman 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 for converts to the Church, young people striving for chastity, and anyone looking to deepen their own prayer life. She is also 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, St. Kateri: Lily of the Mohawks is the most definitive biography of Kateri Tekakwitha.

Experience the extraordinary stories of the French Jesuit missionaries, the famed Blackrobes," in the wilderness of North America and the heroic conversions of the Native Americans to the Catholic faith. Follow Kateri's life from when she contracted smallpox as a toddler – a disease that swept through her village – claiming her family and leaving her severely disfigured and half-blinded. Drawn to the Catholic faith by the Bible stories and teachings of the French Jesuits, Kateri amazed them by her perfection of the virtues, her mystical prayer life, and her total love for Christ. Her last words were: "Jesus, I love you."

Kateri Tekakwitha's life of faith is an inspiration to everyone!

Review Provided By TiberRiver.com - THE Catholic Book Review Site

This item received 3 stars overall. Saint Kateri - the newest saint of America

Saint Kateri – Lily of the Mohawks by Matthew and Margaret Bunson is a newer edition of a book that was first published in 1992. It was updated and rereleased in time for Kateri’s canonization on October 20, 2012.

The book begins with a beautiful foreword by Monsignor Paul Lenz. He was the vice-postulator for the cause of canonization of Kateri. This is followed by nearly a six page timeline starting with the settling of the Iroquois in New York through to St. Kateri’s canonization. I found the 8 ½ page introduction to be filled with interesting facts about the Saint and the process of sainthood.

The biography is then broken into three main sections – The Worlds of Saint Kateri, The Life of Saint Kateri and The Legacy of Saint Kateri. The first section encompasses three chapters. To me they read more like an early American history textboo Full Review...

Profile
Daughter of a Christian Algonquin woman captured by Iroquois and married to a non-Christian Mohawk chief. Orphaned during a smallpox epidemic, which left her with a scarred face and impaired eyesight. Converted and baptized in 1676 by Father Jacques de Lamberville, a Jesuit missionary. Shunned and abused by relatives for her faith. Escaped through 200 miles of wilderness to the Christian Native American village of Sault-Sainte-Marie. Took a vow of chastity in 1679. Known for spirituality and austere lifestyle. Miracle worker. Her grave became a pilgrimage site and place of miracles for Christian Native Americans and French colonists. First Native American proposed for canonization, her cause was started in 1884 under Pope Leo XIII. The Tekakwitha Conference, an international association of Native American Catholics and those in ministry with them, was named for her.
