St. Katharine Drexel is the 2nd American-born saint to be canonized. Her life is nothing short of amazing. She was born November 26th, 1856 in Philadelphia to a wealthy family. Her mother passed when she was just 5 weeks old. Her father remarried and had a daughter. The Drexel children had a wonderful upbringing. Her parents were both spiritually and financially well endowed. They were devot in their faith and often practiced the spiritual and corporal works of mercies. Katharine grew up seeing her father pray for 30 minutes each evening. On Fridays her mother would open their home and care for the poor. They distributed clothing, food and provided rent assistance to those who needed it.
