Biographer, Kateri Tekakwitha

"Unfortunately her mother died, when Kateri was 4 year old. And it's assumed that, her mother Kagenta was her name, sangsongs to Kateri to plant some of the seeds of the Christian faith in her young daughter".

Matthew Bunson, has actually written several biographies of different saints. But he says the life of Kateri is a true model for young people, since she shows that holiness is possible for everyone.

"The universality f the holiness of finding saints in every corner of the world . But also how young people can be called to holiness. We cannot forget that Kateri died at the age of 24".

She has been dubbed the Pocahontas of the Catholic Church. The author of her biography says she built a bridge between Native Americans and Christians.

"Kateri herself represents that beautiful union of the Native American love of nature of prizing that which is good and beautiful in the wilderness”

After converting, Kateri was persecuted by her tribe. She never doubted her faith, but she did flee to Canada. Now as a saint of the Catholic Church, her biographer says she can inspire others to follow in her footsteps and seek holiness in their every day lives.
