Catherine of Siena (1347-1380) had her first vision of Christ at age 6 and dedicated her life to his service as a Dominican. She produced an extraordinary series of nearly 400 letters on spiritual education and the public affairs of the Church and served as an advisor to Pope Gregory XI and his successor, Urban VI. Catherine is also the author of the Dialogue and a Doctor of the Church.
Saint Catherine issues an invitation and challenge: change direction, move away from self and toward God and neighbor. This 15-day journey will teach you to focus on Christ and be transformed by him, sharing the knowledge and joy of his love with others. The Cross is the central axis of these fifteen days because it is the place that leads to God. This is the vision of spiritual awakening in Christ that Saint Catherine offers us.
