St. Catherine of Siena is the
Patron Saint of Italy and a
Doctor of the Church.

She was born Catherine
Benincasa in Siena in 1347.  At
an early age, she joined the
Third Order of Saint Dominic in
which she gained a reputation
for great sanctity.  Recognizing
her holiness and wisdom, many
followed her leadership in her
devotion to the poor.  She
labored incessantly and with
fiery zeal for the unity of the
Church and was a devoted
champion of the Papacy.

She died in Rome in 1380 after
a remarkable life, leaving a
legacy of
outstanding spiritual treatises.

Saint Catherine was canonized
in 1461.

Her Feast occurs on April 29.
