Long Journey to Sainthood, for the First Native American Saint

On October 21 Kateri Tekakwitha, a Mohawk indian woman, will become one of the few people from what is now the United States and Canada to be canonized. This article tells about her and about her impact today.

My daughters love Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha and are very excited about next Sunday. They’ve been praying for her canonization for several years.

Wouldn’t Saint Juan Diego be considered a Native American? I mean, he was a native of Mexico which is a part of North America.

Can anyone tell me at what time in ROME the Mass for Canonization begins? I know it will be rebroadcast later in the day, but if I know what time it begins, I might be able to stream it live - if that service will be available that is:tiphat:

Re: Juan Diego - Not in the usual sense of the description ‘Native American.’ :wink:
