Kateri

Today is the Feast of Kateri Tekakwitha, one that we commemorate with great joy as she was the patron of our Camp Glinodo/Glinodo Center for many years. We often have an icon of her on display and have those rich prayers from our Native American culture added to our Liturgy of the Hours. Since the day falls in the middle of summer it adds to the celebration, as she is a patron of ecologists, too.

Some very nice entries on our community website, if you haven't been there in the last couple of days. Here.

Reflections from prioress Anne Wambach on the summer feast of Benedict, July 11 are here.

This isn't Kateri, of course, but I think I should make her the patron of this site as I gaze upon her every day through my office window. Here she is today--with a couple of memories from earlier entries this past year!
