Photo of the Day: St. Kateri Tekakwitha's Canonization

October 22, 2012

Smith's cure from a near fatal infection in 2005 was the miracle needed for the canonization of Blessed Marianne. St. Kateri, a young Mohawk-Algonquin woman born in upstate New York, is regarded as the first Native American saint.
