St Catherine of Siena

Whilst I was browsing the theology shelves of a local bookstore a few weeks ago, a title in the feminist theology section caught my eye: The Feminine Genius of Catholic Theology by Matthew Levering.

Catherine of Siena

"Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire." So was today's Dominican Saint, Catherine of Siena, quoted by the Anglican Bishop of London at a recent wedding. That the words of an illiterate Italian mystic of the fourteenth century, recorded by amanuenses, should be quoted at the wedding of the future King and Queen of an apparently post-Christian country is remarkable. Still more remarkable, however, is the influence that Catherine had in her own lifetime. Befriending popes and politicians through correspondence from the seclusion of her austere cell and through her adventurous travels, Catherine decisively engaged the political landscape of her day, playing an important role in resolving the Avignon schism. Catherine, then, had surely taken her own advice and discovered the gift and mystery of herself: daring to be a Daniel, speaking the truth to the powerful and mighty on behalf of the poor and marginalised, she was as concerned by the rights of political prisoners as she was by the unity of Christendom, and all this before her early death aged thirty-three.   Read more
