Why a Retreat on
Saint Catherine of Siena?

Caterina di Jacopo di Benincasa, known as Saint Catherine of Siena, was born in Siena (Italy) in 1347. She was the 23rd child to Jacopo and Lapa Benincasa.

At 18, Catherine joined the Dominican Third Order. During her life, She attracted a diverse group of followers. Her passing in 1380 was mourned by her devoted followers, and her legacy was cemented with her canonization in 1461.

Saint Catherine of Siena's enduring relevance to today's Catholic men and women is highlighted in several key aspects of her life and legacy, which can be summarized in the following points:

  • Model of Complete Surrender to Christ: Catherine's life exemplifies total dedication to Christ, a principle that remains central to Catholic faith and practice.

  • Emphasis on Contemplative and Active Life: Catherine balanced a life of prayer and seclusion with active public engagement, demonstrating the importance of both aspects in a holistic spiritual life.

  • Spiritual Guidance and Leadership: Her role in guiding a diverse group of followers, including laypeople and clergy, showcases the potential for spiritual leadership and mentorship.

  • Commitment to the Unity of the Church: Her dedication during the Great Schism to the cause of Pope Urban VI and the unity of the church is a testament to the importance of solidarity within the Catholic community.

  • Legacy as a Woman of Influence: Catherine's recognition as a Doctor of the Church underscores the significant role women can play in the Church's spiritual and intellectual life.
