American Roman Catholic nun who founded a religious order in Santa Fe, NM, now known as the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. The order is dedicated to educating and assisting poor American Indians and blacks. The Sister died on 3/03/1955 and was beatified in 1988 for her life of good works and for the healing of a boy's hearing loss after prayers to her. Pope John canonized her on 10/01/2000, making her the second American-born saint.
