Kateri Tekakwitha Becomes First American Indian Saint - Yahoo! News <-- click it
As if that's not enough, here's the part that just floors me....Kateri Tekakwitha was named the first Native American saint today by Pope Benedict XVI in a ceremony held in St. Peter's Square.
Some 80,000 people came to the open-air ceremony as the 17th century Mohawk-Algonquin woman and six others were canonized.
Seriously?The Washington boy was near death for months with a flesh eating bacteria, but made a miraculous recovery that the Vatican credited to Tekakwitha.
The Vatican said it believes that the prayers Finkbonner's family directed to Tekakwitha were responsible for bringing the boy back from the brink of death.
Is it any wonder that those of us who don't believe will find stuff like this pointing towards the edges of insanity????
