Saint Kateri Prayer

O Saint Kateri, Lily of the Mohawks,
Your love for Jesus, 
so strong, so steadfast, 
pray that we may become like you.

Your short and painful life 
showed us your strength and humility.
Pray that we may become 
forever humble like you.

Like the bright and shining stars at night,
we pray that your light
may forever shine down upon us,
giving light, hope, peacefulness
and serenity in our darkest moments.  

Fill our hearts, Saint Kateri Tekakwitha
with your same love for Jesus
and pray that we may have the strength and courage
to become one like you in Heaven.  
Through Christ our Lord. 


Prayer to the Lily of the Mohawks

Saint Kateri, you are revered
as the mystic of the American wilderness.
Though orphaned at the age of four,
and left with a scarred face and
damaged eyesight from illness,
you were esteemed among the Mohawk tribe.

When you asked to be baptized a Christian
you subjected yourself
to abuse by your people
and were forced to run away.
You endured many trials,
but still flowered in prayer and holiness,
dedicating yourself totally to Christ.

I ask you to be my spiritual guide
along my journey through life.
Through your intercession,
I pray that I may always be
loyal to my faith in all things.


Prayer to St. Kateri, Lily of the Mohawks

O Great Lily of the Mohawks,
we ask that you take our intentions to the foot of the cross.
Ask Jesus to bring healing to those who are heavily burdened.
Through your intercession, may this favor be granted
if it is according to the will of God.
By your prayer, help us always to remain faithful
to Jesus and to his Holy Church.
St. Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us.
