St. Catherine of Siena was one of the most fascinating and influential people of the Middle Ages, but her desire was to remain hidden with Christ. Learn how this seemingly uneducated woman dedicated her life to Christ at the young age of 7 and then managed to get the pope back to Rome. Although she lived centuries ago, St. Catherine still speaks to the deepest desires of our current generation.
