Vatican will canonize first native american saint

A young boy’s recovery from flesh-eating bacteria will help a 17th-century woman become the first Native American saint in the Catholic Church.

The Vatican has called the recovery of Washington state’s Jake Finkbonner from near death in 2006 a miracle that can be credited to Kateri Tekakwitha. Jake’s family prayed to Tekakwitha, who was disfigured by smallpox herself as a girl in what is now upstate New York.

The date for Tekakwitha’s canonization will be announced in a few months.

  2. Globalizarea a facut deja asta. Nu vezi ca si asiaticii sunt in anul 2011 d. Hr. si nu sunt in anul (insert here) oricum niste multe mii cum aveau pana acum cateva sute de ani? Asta e lumea spre care ne indreptam.
