A recurring theme of Kateri’s life is that of traversing and reaching across distance between cultures and people. What actually began before her birth in 1656. The marriage of her father, who was a Mohawk Chief, and her mother, an Algonquin Roman Catholic Woman, crossed tribal lines of the day near Lake Champlain in what is today upstate New York, USA. They settled into their Mohawk tribal village and started their family, first with Kateri then a baby boy.
When Kateri was four, a devastating Smallpox epidemic invaded her village and wiped out many of her tribe, including both of her parents and her baby brother. Kateri was severely scarred on her face from the disease and suffered permanent damage to her eyesight rendering her partially blind. Kateri was adopted by her Aunt and Uncle and moved with them to a different village up river from her original home.
From this time forth until the spring of 1677, she spent a lot of her time on a spiritual journey to what would become her preparation for conversion to Catholicism. She was well known to have a very dedicated spirit and spent many hours of each day alone in the forest speaking to God. It was in the forest, under a beautiful natural spring, where she crossed over and was baptized a Christian woman.
Thereafter, she was subjected to near constant ridicule from her village for adopting the religion of outsiders. People threw rocks at her, called her names, and refused to recognize her socially.
It was in July 1677 that Kateri traversed yet another crossroads moment of her life that was to become the beginning of her path to Sainthood: Leaving her culture and family behind, Kateri embarked on a 200 mile journey north across Lake Champlain and up the St. Lawrence River from one country (New Netherlands) to another (New France), to a place just south of what is now Montreal, Quebec.
God’s call on Kateri to a higher purpose was no doubt recognized by the Jesuit priests accompanying her, for they arrived in Kahnawake with a letter from her Jesuit sponsor that said, “I give you a treasure, guard it well.”
She lived in Kahnawake until 1680, where she died at the age of 24. Her last words were, “Jesus, I love you.” Within 15 minutes of her death, eyewitness accounts describe the scars on her face caused by smallpox had miraculously disappeared.
Kateri spent her final years, as she did her childhood years walking in the forests near her home, placing handmade crosses throughout the woods in a “stations of the cross” like fashion. She was always seen wearing her rosary around her neck, and when not in the forest speaking with God she could be found in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
