Remember: there is a patron saint of people ridiculed for their piety.
She is St. Catherine of Siena.
The last of twenty-five children, she died at age thirty-three.
She was truly amazing: fiercely loyal to the See of Peter during one giant storm.
If you think there are problems in the Church today just begin to read her magnificent writings.
She is a Doctor of the Church and during WWII Pope Pius XII named her a joint patron saint of Italy along with Saint Francis of Assisi.
St. Catherine, pray for us!
