  • Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, From the Housetops Issue


In this issue the heroic life of Saint Kateri Tekawitha is beautifully written by Sister Marie Bernard, who also painted the picture of the saint for the front cover. If you know little or even nothing of this great native born American saint, this issue of our magazine is for you. You will learn why she is called the "Lily of the Mohawks." What was her secret for remaining completely chaste, surrounded as she was by rampant immorality and paganism? Under the guidance of the Jesuit missionaries, she consecrated her virginity to God. What an example she is for our time.

Included in the articles of this issue, is the story of another Native American, Joseph Chi wa tenwa, an edifying example of one of the many members of the Huron Nation who embraced the Catholic Faith, and even shed his blood for it. Sister Agnes Mary wrote the account, and also colorized the original Black and White drawing of Joseph pointing the way to a Jesuit missionary.

From the Housetops Magazine issue.
