Jesus My Lord, Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha was the daughter of a pagan Mohawk chief. A Jesuit missionary converted her, and then her relatives shunned her. They attacked her beliefs, resented her for refusing to work on Sundays, and insulted her prayer life. This did not deter her from practicing the Faith. Now she is the patron of people who are ridiculed for their piety. I ask her pray for the needs of Native Americans, especially those whose rights have been abused, and to intercede for me when people reject the way I express my faith or ridicule my methods of working toward holiness. Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us. Amen.
