O God, who, among the many marvels of Your grace in the New World,
did cause to blossom on he banks of the Mohawak and of the St. Lawrence,
the pure and tender Lily, Kateri Tekakwitha,
grant, we beseech You,
the favor we beg through her intercession--
that this young lover of Jesus and of His cross
may soon be counted among her saints by Holy Mother Church,
and that our hearts may be enkindled with a stronger desire
to imitate her innocence and faith.
Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
