Prayer for the Canonization of Blessed Káteri Tekahkwí:tha


  O God who, among the many marvels of Your Grace in the New World,

did cause to blossom on the banks of the Mohawk and of the St. Lawrence,

the pure and tender Lily, Káteri Tekahkwí:tha,

grant we beseech You, the favor we beg through her intercession;

that this Young Lover of Jesus and of His Cross

may soon be counted among her Saints by Holy Mother Church,

and that our hearts may be enkindled with a stronger desire

to imitate her innocence and faith.

Through the same Christ our Lord.
