Jake Finkbonner, of Ferndale, Washington, receives the holy communion from Pope Benedict XVI during a canonization ceremony, in St. Peter's Square, at the Vatican, Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012. Finkbonner was infected with a flesh-eating bacteria in 2006, when he was five years old, and his prognosis was so grave that his parents had last rites performed and were discussing donating his organs. The Vatican determined that Jake’s cure was a miracle due to the intercession of Kateri Tekakwitha, a 17th century Native American who is among seven people who were declared saints during the ceremony.
