SAINT CATHERINE OF SIENA, Virgin and Doctor of the Church – Memoria: 29 April

Saint Catherine was born in the year 1347. Wishing to follow the way of perfection she entered the Third Order of Saint Dominic while still an adolescent. She was on fire with love of God and her neighbors; she brought peace and harmony between her fellow citizens, strenuously fought for the rights and liberty of the papacy, and did much for the renewal of religious life.  She dictated a number of writings which are renowned for their spirituality and sound doctrine. She died in the year 1380.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You made Saint Catherine of Siena a contemplative lover of the Lord’s sufferings and an ardent servant of Your Church. Grant through her prayer that Your people may be united to Christ in His mystery, and rejoice for ever in the revelation of His glory. We pray this in the most precious name of our Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.  Amen

JOHN 6:35-37 (Today’s Gospel Reading: John 6:35-40)

35 And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
