This St. Kateri Tekakwitha Rosary is a lovely way to display your devotion to one of our newest Catholic saints. St. Kateri was recentlly canonized by Pope Benedict XVI and is the first Native American saint. The St. Kateri rosary features a color medal centerpiece of the saint holding a crucifix and standing before a cross. The gold links and crucifix as well as the clear beads makes the colorful center stand out beautifully. St. Kateri Tekakwitha is a shining example that God's call to holiness is truly universal and is heard by men and women in all walks of life and all ages. She was also known as a miracle worker and sought out by others for her prayerful and sanctified life. Saint Kateri Tekakwitha is the patron of environmentalists and orphans.
