VATICAN CITY (AP) Jake Finkbonner was so close to death after flesh-eating bacteria infected him through a cut on his lip that his parents had last rites performed and were discussing donating the 5-year-old's tiny organs.

Jake's 2006 cure from the infection was deemed medically inexplicable by the Vatican, the "miracle" needed to propel a 17th century Native American, Kateri Tekakwitha, on to sainthood. Kateri will be canonized on Sunday along with six other people, the first Native American to receive the honor.

Jake is fully convinced, as is the church, that the prayers his family and community offered to Kateri, including the placement of a relic of the soon-to-be saint on Jake's leg, were responsible for his survival.

I was elated at St Kateri's canonization. Her strength in practicing her faith under ridicule is very admirable.


But I am saddened to see some negative views about it: www.timesunion.com

Some if not most 4th Degree Assemblies of the Knights of Columbus are named after saints. When we were starting a new assembly here at St. Elizabeth's we decided on naming it after her. I was the 1st Faithful Navigator cool

Jake is from the Bellingham Washington area, and I went to college with some of his family. His story is amazing! A good friend of mine, who is a local priest was blessed to be able to attend the Canonization Mass. Here are a couple of articles from the most recent edition of our Archdiocesan newspaper:
