Catherine of Siena, 14th Century Lay Dominican, and Doctor of the Church
We remember that beautiful picture of Catherine walking with the Lord, reading the Divine Office, and sensing Him there beside her, so close as to feel a complete union of mind and heart. Through Catherine´s intercession, may we be helped to remain in Jesus and live out of a more immediate and passionate contact with Him, animated by His spirit and a passion for a more human world.
O Glorious St. Catherine, champion of the Church of Christ and of His vicar on earth,
Doctor rich in wisdom, peace-maker among peoples, friend and guide of souls, obtain for us the wisdom that will make us saints, and for the world, a lasting peace. We make our prayer through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who with you lives and reigns in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever, Amen.
Words from St. Catherine of Siena
God does not ask a perfect work, but an infinite desire.
Be who you were created to be and you will set this world on fire.
Preach the Truth as if you had a million voices. It is silence that kills the world.
Love does not stay idle.
God is closer to us than water is to a fish.
