Catherine of Siena--Peace Maker Saint
Yesterday I put a picture of OUR LADY OF PEACE that I photographed in the Roman Basilica of "Mary Major". Along with Mary, the Mother of God who, with her Son, ardently desires peace, forgiveness and reconciliation in today's world is the great saint, Catherince of Siena. In my trip with my two brothers to Italy I visited the house where Catherine of Siena was born. There I took this photo of the holy and powerful St. Catherine. Catherine spoke both to kings and to Popes urging them to create peace and to allow reconciliations to happen. Needless to say she was not always heeded. But I add this picture of Catherine hoping for peace in our terror torn and war torn world.
