American boy's healing paves way for Blessed Kateri's canonization
Catholic World News - December 20, 2011
The sudden and inexplicable healing of a young boy in Washington state who was near death because of flesh-eating bacteria was the miracle that has paved the way for the canonization of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha.
Despite doctors' best efforts, Jake Finkbonner was near death in 2006 when a priest urged his parents to pray for the intercession of Blessed Kateri. He soon experienced a complete recovery, for which doctors cannot provide a medical explanation.
