Daily Catholic Question

Who is the most recent person from the United States to be canonized?

St. Damien of Molokai was canonized in 2009. He is remembered for his ministry to the lepers in Hawaii. At that time, though, Hawaii was not an American state.

St. Theodora (Mother Theodore Guerin) was canonized in 2006 and spent most of her ministry in Indiana. However, she was born in France.

The most recent native-born American saint is St. Katharine Drexel who abandoned a multimillion-dollar fortune to serve among the poor. She was canonized in 2000.

		<p>His <em>First Epistle to the Corinthians </em>was preserved and widely read in the early Church. This letter from the bishop of Rome to the Church in Corinth concerns a split that alienated a large number of the laity from the clergy.

American Catholic Blog To avoid running aground on the rocks, our spiritual life cannot be
reduced to a few religious moments. In the succession of days and
