On the feast day of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the Church offers the following collect prayer at Mass:

Lord God, You called the virgin Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, to shine among the American Indian people as an example of innocence of life. Through her intercession, may all peoples of every tribe, tongue and nation, having been gathered into Your Church, proclaim your greatness in one song of praise. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen

Powerful unifying words for a troubled nation and world…”proclaim your greatness in one song of praise.”
