The B.C. Catholic has a story by Deborah Gyapong about the travel's of a Canadian delegation to Rome for St. Kateri's canonization:
For Canadian delegation members attending Kateri Tekakwitha’ s canonization, a highlight was meeting the boy who experienced a miracle cure attributed to the new saint.

In a news conference Oct. 21 in Rome after the canonization, the Speaker of the House of Commons Andrew Scheer, a Catholic, spoke of meeting Seattle teenager Jake Finkbonner who was miraculously cured of life-threatening flesh-eating disease after a relic of Kateri was placed on his pillow and family and friends pleaded for her intercession. Jake and family participated in the prayer vigil led by the Canadian delegation on Oct. 20.

“It was one of those special moments that I’ll always treasure,” Scheer told journalists.
