The English-language edition of the Osservatore romano published an article by Father Thomas Rosica, C.S.B., CEO of Salt + Light Television, in its March 7, 2012, issue, on how Blessed Kateri’s faith and witness are a model for the New Evangelization. Blessed Kateri will be canonized on October 21, 2012, in Rome.
