    Very good list, thank you for this.

  5. SISTER MARY LAURENCE  •  Feb 10, 2011 @6:05 pm

    HELLO, VERY pleased you have listed Blessed Marianne Cope among the blesseds and now you can take her name off the Venerable list.

    Kateri is a blessed too.


  6. SISTER MARY LAURENCE  •  Feb 10, 2011 @6:33 pm

    thanks again. Blessed Kateri still belongs on the blessed list (not canonized yet) and there is one more blessed in our country (there are five Blesseds in all).

    Hi there-just came over from EWTN’s site and your site was mentioned in the ‘Catholic Q & A’ section. Someone mentioned your site, so I thought I’d come over and see what you got with regards to American Saints.

    Hi, Sister Mary Laurence! I see from the Syracuse paper yesterday that another miracle for Blessed Marianne Cope was sent to Rome for verification. I’m so excited at the thought that this might be the one that will secure her canonization! I’m from Utica, so this would be a great ‘spiritual shot in the arm’ for us!

    Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha (1656-1680), also known as Blessed Catherine Tekakwitha, is honored by the Catholic Church as the patroness of ecology, nature, and the environment.

    Tekakwitha’s baptismal name is Catherine, which in the Iroquois languages is Kateri. Tekakwitha’s Iroquois name can be translated as, “One who places things in order.”1 or “To put all into place.”2 Other translations include, “she pushes with her hands” and “who walks groping for her way” (because of her faulty eyesight).

    Tekakwitha was born at Ossernenon, which today is near Auriesville, New York, USA. Tekakwitha’s father was a Mohawk chief and her mother was a Catholic Algonquin.

    Has the cause of the priest who founded Boys’ Town been introduced?

  10. Hannah of Pentwater  •  Sep 13, 2011 @3:07 pm

    I very much enjoyed browsing this page – THANK YOU!

    You may want to add Servant of God, Father Isaac T. Hecker, CSP. His cause was opened recently – see also (needs updating!)

    Unfortunately, many links to “Holy Men and Women” are dead. Maybe we all could help update them? Here is one I found for Fr. Hardon

    Thanks Hannah, we’ll check it out and add it!

  12. admin  •  Sep 20, 2011 @2:37 am

    hi Hannah, since we are a volunteer-run website, any help you provide in updating old or incorrect info is much appreciated! Simply use the contact area on the site to submit any updates you may have. Thank you!

    You forgot Peace Pilgrim. She was a Saint but not in the Catholic system.

  14. Donna  •  Feb 2, 2012 @4:54 pm

    Please update with Blessed John Paul II

    I just heard this thing on the radio about funny comedian Tom Truong up coming movie The Second Coming of Christ. It’s a movie about the son of God reborn to earth to save us from armageddon of December 21 2012.

    Kateri Tekakwitha should not be shown among the saints until she is canonized next Oct 21st. On that day Bl Marianne Cope will also be canonized. Kevin B Hale

    Today my religious ed students (6,7,8th grade) asked if there were any American saints. I knew of only 2 and promised I would do some research for them. Thanks for your site and the information you’ve provided. I will share the information with the goal of “planting seeds” for the Holy Spirit!

  18. SanDee Erickson, SFO  •  Mar 27, 2012 @2:30 pm

    What about Sister Dorothy Stang who was martyred in South America because she stood up with the native people against the big ranchers and oil companies who wanted to take away their land?
