Vatican investigating healing attributed to Blessed Kateri

April 25, 2011

The Vatican is investigating whether the healing of a boy in Washington in 2006 is a miracle attributable to the intercession of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha.

Doctors said that Jake Finkbonner, then 11, was expected to die from a fast-spreading flesh-eating bacterium. “All of a sudden, to have this infection stop is almost like a geyser coming out of the earth with this great roar--and all of a sudden it just stops,” said surgeon Richard Hopper. “And there's silence. And everybody's just a little bit stunned by it being over.”
