Saint-Catherine-of-SienaO My Savior, Saint Catherine of Siena took her faith out into the world to make a difference for Your Kingdom.  She served as a spiritual guide to many, she affected politics, and she convinced the pope to return the Church’s leadership to Rome.  By word and deed, she taught that Christians should influence the world with their spiritual values.  I ask her to pray for me, that I will recognize the opportunities around me in which I can assert my Christian Faith to help shape society.  Lord, fill me with a desire to get involved in the world’s affairs, and show me how to do it well.  Saint Catherine of Siena, pray for me.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Catherine of Siena

Only your love could so dignify the flesh of Adam. And so by reason of this immeasurable love I beg, with all the strength of my soul, that you freely extend your mercy to all your lowly creatures. >>

The pearl of justice is found in the heart of mercy. >>

Out of mercy you have washed us in his Blood, out of mercy you have wished to converse with creatures. O crazed with love! It did not suffice for you to take flesh, but you also wished to die! … O mercy! My heart drowns in thinking of you: for no matter where I turn to think, I find only mercy. >>

O dearest daughter, I have determined to show my mercy and loving kindness to the world, and I choose to provide for mankind all that is good…. I want you to know: whatever I give to man, I do it out of my great providence. >>

I see your mercy pressing you to give us even more when you leave yourself with us as food to strengthen our weakness, so that we forgetful fools should be reminded forever of your goodness. >>

Everything comes from love; all is ordained for the salvation of man. God does nothing without this goal in mind. >>

Now we are the vessel that has received this blood. And we are the rock into which the standard of the most holy cross was set. >>

To the servant of God … every place is the right place, and every time is the right time. >>
