Transcript of Saint Catherine of Siena

My Early Life My Dedication Some Snapshots!
Later on... My Death Name: My name is Caterina Benincasa which is my birth name, you may also know me as St. Catherine of Siena. When I was 17, I became a Dominican tertiary. A Dominican tertiary was a woman who entered the service of the Third Order, becoming something like a nun.We were put to live in an abbey and we lived centering our entire lives around Jesus Christ. I became a tertiary because I felt that God was leading me through the visions I had, I realized that this was what I was to do. Saint Catherine of Siena In a time, when travel was not very comfortable, I went around working for peace in Italy and the Church.

We lived in Siena, Tuscany, Italy in quite a large house. My Birthday: I was born on the 25th of March, 1347 in Italy. here are a few paintings of me, my life, my house and so on..... This is the abbey I lived at. In th
hav I was canonized in 1461 by Pope Pius II and my feast day is the 29th of April. I
th Fun Facts! In one of my visions Jesus Christ was holding a wedding ring out to me and I understood that I was meant to be dedicated to him. Here's a quote from one of the letter I wrote: "I turn me and lean against the most Holy Cross of Christ Crucified, and there I will fasten me." I would never eat much, and if I did I would throw it up shortly after. Today, I would have had anorexia and bulimia
