March 3 – Saint Katharine Drexel

Saint Katharine Drexel

listenBlessed Savior, Saint Katharine Drexel was born into a generous, wealthy American family. As a religious sister and teacher, she founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament to serve Native Americans and African Americans. She is the patron saint of racial justice and of philanthropists and was the second person born in what is now the United States to be canonized a saint. Lord Jesus, I pray for those who are treated unjustly. Help me to overcome any prejudices I might have. Use me as an instrument of fair treatment. Saint Katharine Drexel, pray for me.  Amen.
