    I ask that Kateri please pray for me to heal my back so that I may rejoin my visitation with nature. I bared the death of my husband of 22 years,trying to keep my children strong in the face of death. I did this on my own starting From 1998 to his passing in 2006. As, a result I had lost faith In God but, now have come to realize that he was beside me keeping me strong all the time. Now I ask that Kateri give me her hand and lead me into Nature again as the pain in my back keeps my from what I love so much. With each stride I endure the agony but continue on. Blessed is Kateri who is the Lily of the Mohwak. Amen

    I am asking Blessed Kateri to intercede on behalf of a missing college student named Jessica Ronhock, who was attending the nursing program at Elmira College in NY (not far from Kateri's home of Auriesville, NY) and was last seen in Kayenta, AZ, a Navajo tribal land around January 22, 2012. Her family are devote Catholics and I know if it is God's will, Jessica can be found. Please join me in asking Bl.Kateri for this intercession, thank you!

    I have admired Blessed Kateri for twenty-three years. Her story is so inspiring. I chose her for my confirmation name sixteen years ago. When I named my daughter after her two years ago, I was, and still am, asked where I came up with the name. I enjoy sharing her story. I am happy about her pending canonization, but surprised it took so long. Blessed Kateri please continue your vigil over our precious planet. You are an inspiration to me. Your continued devotion in the face of such hardship has helped me though so much. Please help me to be true to my faith. In your name I pray for my cousin. she has a rare cancer that has come back. Please comfort her while she heals physically and emotionally. Through Christ be Blessed.

    Please post when you have the exact date and information of the canonization of Kateri. I have heard it will be in October 2012. I would like to know where it will take place so we can save some funds to come to this historical day. Now the children can use Saint Kateri for their name for confirmation.

    I was introduced to Blessed Kateri by Sister Pat, whose was actually christened Kateri by her parents. I spoke to Sister Pat about a friend of mine, R.A. who is very ill with ALS. Sister Pat suggested I pray to Blessed Kateri for a miracle. I am meeting my dear girl friend this afternoon. I am praying for a miracle. Please pray with me.
