St Catherine of Siena

Some short briefs from St. Catherine taken from Laudate.

Enrich your soul in the great goodness of God: The Father is your table, the Son is your food, and the Holy Spirit waits on you and then makes His dwelling in you.  – Saint Catherine of Siena

Charity is the sweet and holy bond which links the soul with its Creator: it binds God with man and man with God. – Saint Catherine of Siena

Eternal Trinity, Godhead, mystery deep as the sea, you could give me no greater gift than the gift of yourself. For you are a fire ever burning and never consumed, which itself consumes all the selfish love that fills my being. Yes, you are a fire that takes away the coldness, illuminates the mind with its light, and causes me to know your truth. And I know that you are beauty and wisdom itself. The food of angels, you gave yourself to man in the fire of your love. – from On Divine Providence by Saint Catherine of Siena

Everything comes from love, all is ordained for the salvation of man, God does nothing without this goal in mind. – Saint Catherine of Siena

St. Catherine, pray for us.

May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
