Lily of the Mohawks: The Story of St. Kateri
by Emily Cavins, Foreword by Fr. Mitch Pacwa
Order from Fransican Media: 800-488-0488 or Catalog.FranciscanMedia.org
St. Kateri is the first Native American to become a saint from North America. Her life of 350 years ago was one of simplicity and devotion to Christ in the midst of great political change and division among the Native American tribes. Her life can help us become more aware of the current situation in the US and Canada concerning Native American relations. She is an intercessor for North American for healing and hope.
Review from Fr. Chris Walsh: In recent years there has been much conversation about the "new evangelization" yet many are still unsure of what it actually means. In Lily of the Mohawks: The Story of St. Kateri, Emily Cavins allows us to experience its meaning as she tells this beloved Native American's story of grace. Through the Jesuit missionaries' willingness to understand the culture of Kateri's people, their commitment to remain a loving presence despite many obstacles and the primacy of prayer and devotion we learn the essence of the "new evangelization". This book tells us a story that will no doubt inspire many so that there are more saints for North American. -- Fr. Christopher M. Walsh, Pastor, St. Raymond Church, Philadelphia PA
