Tekakwitha Conference

Comments

Tonight on EWTN at 7 pm just 15 mins away Watch St. Kateri Tekakwitha ! 🙌💗
What many people do not know is that not all Saints are first Catholic. Saints are chosen for reasons. May be a few I know of... 1. Miracles are attributed to the person. 2. The person has had a life not contradictory to Catholic doctrine. 3. The involved members of the Catholic church needing Saints have a wanting eye. I know these reasons work for Catholic. Isn't it odd this is a one sided deal? It is said that a Catholic Saint with few miracles attributed to he or she is a "small" Saint. The Church can admit to this if they like. Before you charge into welcoming Tekakwitha as a saint, I challenge you, HOW MANY OF YOU WILL BE HEALED BECAUSE OF HERE? Come on, give me a ball park figure?
Pablo Tac (1822-1841) was Luiseño Indian. He was born and raised at Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, located in present-day Oceanside, California. At the age of ten, he left the Mission with Fr. Peyrí and another young neophyte boy, Agapito Amamix. Their destination was Rome. On September 23, 1834, Pablo and Agapito enrolled at the Urban College. There they learned how to be missionary priests, hoping to one day return home to California to shepherd their Luiseño brothers and sisters in Christ. Also while in Rome, Pablo wrote down the memories of his people, the earliest from a California Mission Indian. Meet Pablo Tac is a story of faith, courage and the universality of the Catholic Church.

Come and meet Pablo Tac.

The Tekakwitha Conference is the voice, presence and identity of Indigenous Catholics of North America under the protection and inspiration of Saint Kateri

One of the core tenets of the #TekakwithaConference is to “promote healing through forgiveness and reconciliation.”

If we are to live by our values it is incumbent upon our organization to make room for the conversation about the boarding school period to take place. We must dedicate resources to healing from this trauma - a process that begins with advocating for acknowledgement within our own Catholic communities and at every level of the Church’s hierarchy.

Even in times of great distress, it is important to remember that one of the four main focuses of a thriving, healthy Kateri Circle is service.

Through this global health crisis, let us look for safe and effective ways to be a light in our communities.

On this feast day of #StKateriTekakwitha we are reminded by her life that even when sickness and disease seemingly robs us of everything, healing is possible. This is the hope we have in Jesus: that He will make all things new! Saint Kateri knew this well and inspired so many others with her faith.

Looking for a faith-filled family-friendly movie to watch this weekend?

Look no further than EWTN - at 8 p.m. ET, Saturday, April 17, tune in for "Kateri," the story of a Mohawk girl who, though orphaned, ostracized, and plagued by smallpox and war, embraced the Catholic faith and became a missionary to her native people. She is the first Native American saint and known as "The Lily of the Mohawks."
