Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha: Patron of the environment and ecology

Wouldn't this make a wonderful motion picture. It's too bad Hollywood has no desire to tell stories of strong, devoted Catholic women. Learn more about Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha in this newly posted video . . .

. . . or read this reflection from this later post on the soon-to-be Saint Tekakwitha. 


  1. Great video! I love Kateri! There is one thing that puzzles me though: What is her connection to the environment? Why is she considered the patron saint of ecology?

  2. I have the same question as the above. As a geologist and environmentalist, I wonder what her connection to the environment is? Thanks!

  3. Hi all.

    For more information on St. Kateri and her connection with ecology, check this later blog post:

    There are some links in that post as well that may be helpful.

    God bless,
    Bill P.
