St. Kateri Tekakwitha

Mt 11: 28-30

“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Be Patient and Wait

Today we celebrate the feast of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha. Saint Kateri is the patroness of ecology, the environment, people in exile, and Native Americans. Saint Kateri was a Native American woman, worker, and virgin. She strongly lives out two virtues we see echoed in today’s reading, diligence and patience. In today’s reading we are reminded to be patient and wait for God. Our souls yearn and desire God, especially in difficult times. In dark moments we grow especially impatient because God’s ways might not be our ways and we desire answers.

Let us remember to be diligent in prayer and faith, like Saint Kateri, and wait for God. There is always hope, even in our lowest moments. Nothing is ever the end because the “dead shall live.” Even life conquers death if we are patient and wait. Pray for patience today. Is there an aspect of my life in which I am being impatient and not waiting for God?

Prayer

Wait for the Lord, whose day is near.
Wait for the Lord, keep watch, take heart.
