To the upright I will show the saving power of God - Psalm 50: 23b
"Bl Kateri Tekakwitha was devoted to the Eucharist
and toJesus Crucified. At 4 am she could be seen kneeling
outside the chapel in the snow waiting for it to open.
She attended three Masses daily and always managed two hours
in preparation for Holy Communion and two hours in thanksgiving;
and she made frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament.
Her motto: 'Who can teach me what is most agreeable to God
so that I may do it?' "

"I 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."- St Kateri Tekakwitha
St Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us!
