Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, Patroness of Canada

Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha was canonized in Rome.  Canada's first aboriginal saint

I guess this litany should be renamed, but until that is done officially it remains.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
