Reading didn’t come easily to Catherine of Siena (1347-1380), and she didn’t learn to write until she was an adult. But Catherine wasn’t about to let those limitations and other obstacles—including her parents’ desire to marry her off—get in the way of God’s plan. The 400 or so writings—many of them dictated to others—that Catherine left behind paint a powerful picture of God’s love for us.
protect me today
from the Evil one’s whispers
know better than you
what’s best for me.
Make your time with God today a dialogue. Don’t do all the talking.
