Known for her chastity and corporal mortification of the flesh, she is the first Native American woman to be venerated in the Roman Catholic Church. Tekakwitha was beatified by the Blessed Pope John Paul II in 1980 and was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI in October 2012.
She followed the generation of saints John de Brebeuf, Isaac Jogues and Companions from the North American Martyrs confirming the ancient belief that “the blood of martyrs is the seed of the church”.(Tertullian (c. 160 c. 220 AD)
