St. Catherine of Siena did much for the Papacy which, at that time, was in grave need of her help. As a child she delighted to pray and she often said Hail Marys on each step of any stair. Once she was rewarded with a vision of Our Lord.
Like the prophet Jeremiah warning the Jews of their fall, St. Catherine was also sent by God to persuade the Pope to return to Rome. In the year 1375 Catherine went to Avignon to persuade Pope Gregory XI to return to Rome after an absence of seventy years.
At first, Pope Gregory would not hear her, as he was too weak to stand up to the French nobles and the French cardinals. Catherine told him about her knowledge of a certain secret oath the Pope had made. In the end he agreed to go with her back to Rome. St. Catherine died when she was thirty-three.
Her feast day is April 30th.
Please say a little prayer for our artist, Bee Jay.
