    She was TRULY given the GRACE and was embodied by the Holy Spirit that guided her love for the less fortunate, Indian and black Americans. She was given the wisdom to have known WHY we exist here on Earth and what our responsibilities are when we are blessed to know God and understand our duty to love him with all our heart. God Bless her in Heaven, for she is an example of divine behavior and not of Pluralistic Ignorance, that has dominated the minds of our Country today.

    We as Catholics must carry our torch to those and light the faces of those covering their faces with the hands of the evil one. We have a responsibility to respond to Mary and God's call to action for our salvation and all of mankind. Thank you.

    Saint Katherine was truly a wonderful woman indeed. Because of her tireless work for Native American children to attain a standard and religious education that to this day I am forever grateful for creating St. Michael's Elementary School in St. Michaels, AZ. My sister, cousins, nieces, and nephews all have or are partaking into the education there.
    I am at a crossroad and hope that I may one day educate the little ones on my reservation soon. Pray for us, Saint Katherine.
