Kateri's final words were. . ."Jesus Mary I love you" Witnesses reported that within a few minutes of her death, the pock marks from smallpox completely vanished and her face shone with radiant loveliness. Before her death, Kateri promised her friends that she would continue to love and pray for them in heaven. Both Native Americans and settlers immediately began praying for her heavenly intercession. Several people, including a priest who attended Kateri during her last illness, reported that Kateri had appeared to them and many healing miracles were attributed to her. Fifty years after Kateri's death the first convent for Indian nuns was established in Mexico and they pray daily for Sainthood for Blessed Kateri. Their prayers were answered on October 21, 2012 when Kateri was canonized as the first native american woman to be honored with sainthood.
Our sun catchers delight all year round: hanging in a window or from a tree in your garden, they look beautiful and bring a smile or memory to whom ever gazes upon them. This ornament makes a great gift for friends or yourself.
Approximately 4.25" in diameter and a quarter inch thick, weighing 4 oz or more, these are heavy as one would expect from a quality piece. The glass is individually hand pressed from molds that are engraved in relief. Individual variations such as bubbles and shear marks occur naturally in the process of gathering the glass, distinguishing each as handmade.
