Vatican recognizes Taos artist's
artist Giovanna Paponetti received a
thank-you letter from the
Vatican after sending Pope Benedict XVI a copy of her
book, “Kateri: Native American
Kateri is the only American Indian ever considered for sainthood.
“Never in my life did I expect
this,” Paponetti said of the letter.
“I don’t know why she isn’t more well-known,” Paponetti said. “I felt like I was being guided by Kateri. I am grateful that my book has found its way to the Vatican as this is the place where Kateri’s sainthood will be decided, hopefully soon.”
