Happy St. Catherine's feast day!
Alas, I am celebrating by one last big push to get a big project out. There is no rest for the wicked!
But for those of you who have been good - there is a treat over at the invaluable Disputations where Tom has been carefully, and in the best Dominican manner, discussing the challenging content of one of St. Catherine's letters to a seeking layman.
Of course, when was Catherine not challenging in her letters?
When reading Raymond de Capua's biography of Catherine, I found myself overwhelmed, thinking " Did that woman ever spend 10 minutes in a normal, boring manner?"
You gotta allow for the hagiographic instinct - especially since Raymond was writing with an eye toward Catherine's eventual canonization.
There may possibly be time for more later. But in the meantime as Tom puts it:
In the Name of Jesus Christ crucified and of sweet Mary, happy Feast of St. Catherine of Siena!
