St Catherine of Siena's Dialogue describes the entire spiritual life through a series of conversations between God and the soul, represented by Catherine herself. Readers of The Dialogue of Saint Catherine of Siena, will find her revelations from God as informative - and formative - as those who recognized her sanctity during her life.

We can read God's communications to his beloved daughter with detached awe or we can receive His messages to us through her writings. Do you long for certainty that Divine Providence exists in the midst of our chaotic world? Does your prayer seem too dry, or too routine?

If so, The Dialogue will provide consolation, encouragement, and hope.… (more)

Dictated conversation between a thirty-one year old woman and God during an extended mystical episode. Noteworthy for its literary conceit of Christ as the bridge (a la Florence's Ponte Vecchio) upon which the soul can progress upward by stages. ( )

Good translation, good notes -if you are new to Catherine, start here, if you are not new to her but prefer the Dialogues in English, stay here.
