What can be better than this biography of St. Catherine of Siena--Medieval saint, victim soul, mystic, visionary-- written by her
spiritual director of many years? It places one in Siena, in the 14th century, and does not taint her inedia (lived for some time solely on the Eucharist) with notions that she was anorexic, as do some current biographers may suggest. This woman is a miracle of the Lord, and her life attests to this fact yet. She reaches any one who desires holiness, and there is no way around the sacrifices and focus required. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0895557614, Paperback)

This is the classic life of St Catherine by her spiritual director. He tells of her only what he experienced firsthand, or of what he learned firsthand from her mother, her sisters, her family members and friends. An incredible life, told simply and straightforwardly, without embellishment and without dodging her many miracles, and miraculous conversions. This book puts you squarely in the presence of one of Holy Mother Church's greatest saints.
