Lily of the Mohawhs NeEARLY THREE Hunprep Years have passed since Kateri Tekakwitha died. Although she was not baptized until the age of twenty, she showed a great abundance of grace and Christian virtues during her short life of twenty-four years. The Church, in remembering her daughter Kateri, proclaimed her “Venerable” through the decree of Pius XII on January 3, 1943. The record of favors obtained through her intercession is kept at Caughnawaga, Quebec, and is furthering the cause of her canonization. Kateri Tekakwitha, or the Lily of the Mohawks as she was to be known, was born in 1656 at Ossernenon, an Iroquois village — now Auriesville, New York. Four years later, the village population was decimated by a plague of smallpox which killed both her parents. Kateri survived and was adopted by an uncle and aunt who taught her the domestic skills demanded of the future Indian wife. When she became of a marriageable age, the Lily of the Mohawks refused to enter upon this state of life; the people of the primitive and immoral society caused her much suffering for they could neither believe in nor understand, nor have any use for Christian chastity and virginity. When three Jesuit Missionaries in the Iroquois Country stopped at the home of Kateri’s uncle, they heard of this maiden and the vow she had taken. Having asked for instructions, the girl was placed under the special care of Father de Lamberville who baptized her on Easter Sunday, 1676. She continued her former way of life, but hatred and resentment towards her grew to such an intensity that the Jesuit Fathers, fearing for her life and safety, decided to send her to their mission at Caughnawaga where a large Christian Community welcomed her. Shortly after her visit to the Hotel Dieu and to the Sisters of Notre Dame, the Lily of the Mohawks decided to consecrate herself to Christ. For a while the Fathers hesitated, but on March 25, 1679, granted her wish and she became the first. Indian ever to take the vow of chastity. In this new environment, Kateri intensified her penitential devotions; she wore iron chains, walked barefoot in the snow and spent many long hours praying in the forest and before the Blessed Sacrament. She continued her holy life until death claimed her in 1680. People who saw her after she died claimed that her face ‘shone like the sun’, and her features, once marred by the smallpox pits, now ‘reflected an angelic beauty’. In a measure of days Kateri Tekakwitha saw little of life. Her existence was arduous —— but many of the hardships were self-imposed. In her place of reward, Kateri is praying and ever ready to help us, knowing that every minute spent in meditation, penance and prayer has availed. —Routr NELson
