Written in an easy-to-read style, this book tells of the Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, a young Algonquian woman who was baptized and converted to the Catholic faith. Becoming ostracized from her tribe, she left her village and thereafter lived a life devoted to God until her death at age twenty-four. 178 pages, softcover.
This is the inspiring story of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, a holy young Indian woman who was converted to Christianity by French missionaries during the 1600s. Ostracized from the Iroquois who had adopted her, Kateri lived as a single woman with deep faith, offering her sufferings and life to Christ. Affectionately known as "Lily of the Mohawks", she was recently beautified by Pope John Paul II. Illustrated.
