"I am not my own..."

To the upright I will show
the saving power of God. - Psalm 50: 23b

"... Kateri Tekakwitha was devoted 
to the Eucharist and to Jesus 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?' "

Louis Kaczmarek 
Excerpt from: Hidden Treasure, 
The Riches of the Eucharist


 St Kateri Tekakwitha
Daughter of Christian Algonquin mother
and non-Christian Mohawk Chief
Consecrated Virgin
"Lily of the Mohawks"
Patroness of ecology and the environment
FEAST DAY - July 14

"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!
