This nine-day journey to St. Catherine of Siena’s feast day on April 29 is the second Novena by Catholic laity to unite the faithful in prayer for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in healing and atonement.

St. Catherine of Siena is known for her love of Christ and his Church. Her love was personal and mystical, culminating in her receiving the Stigmata of Jesus. Her love was also practical, expressing itself in advocacy for moral and administrative Church reform. She appealed personally to Church leaders, including Pope Gregory XI, to enact the reforms needed to rekindle faith within the Church, and the love of Christ that produces obedience to him and his teachings. Her advocacy was not politically motivated but flowed from her communion with Christ. She lived in the 14th century, a time not unlike our own. She died at the early age of 33.
