VATICAN CITY — Jake Finkbonner was so close to death after flesh-eating bacteria infected him through a cut on his lip that his parents had last rites performed and were discussing donating the 5-year-old’s tiny organs.
Jake’s 2006 cure from the infection was deemed medically inexplicable by the Vatican, the “miracle” needed to propel a 17th century Native American, Kateri Tekakwitha, on to sainthood. Kateri will be canonized on Sunday along with six other people, the first Native American from what is now the U.S. to receive the honor.
Jake is fully convinced, as is the Catholic Church, that the prayers his family and community offered to God through Kateri’s intercession, including the placement of a Kateri relic on Jake’s leg, were responsible for his survival.
Jake, now 12 and an avid basketball player and cross-country runner, will be present at the canonization, along with hundreds of members of his own Lummi tribe from northwest Washington state and indigenous communities across the U.S. and Canada who have converged on Rome to honor one of their own. It’s a ceremony the Catholic Church hopes will encourage Native Americans to keep to their Christian faith amid continued resentment among some that Catholicism was imposed on them by colonial-era missionaries centuries ago.
“I believe everybody has a purpose on this earth,” Jake’s mother Elsa Finkbonner said this week soon after the family arrived in Rome for the ceremony. “I think this Sunday Jake will define his purpose, and that’s to make Kateri a saint.”

My comment: The signs of Jesus Christ coming is clear in the Holy Word of God. That this boy was healed by a “saint” is a lie. Satan himself can mask as an angel of light, and lying wonders and miracles are even performed by him. It is an illusion to deceive others, even possibly the elect.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Lying wonders such as these will become frequent, as the devil knows his time is short. He will try to deceive as many as possible. Hold fast to the Word of God. Pray and Read. Seek him! For his coming is very near. Stand fast against Satan.
The catholic church leads many to the wide gates of hell, by endorsing lies such as these, and the praising of bones (among many other things.)
But Jesus Christ says:
“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” —Revelation 19:20

Now they will feel a part of the family and welcomed in. Yes, the deception and illusion is real. Too bad it has to be masked and can’t be simply attributed to faith in the healing power of Christ. But then the enemy, the Devil, has as his purpose to steal the glory of Christ, if that were possible.
Revelation 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
