April 29 – Saint Catherine of Siena


listenO My Savior, Saint Catherine of Siena took her faith out into the world to make a difference for Your Kingdom.  She served as a spiritual guide to many, she affected politics, and she convinced the pope to return the Church’s leadership to Rome.  By word and deed, she taught that Christians should influence the world with their spiritual values.  I ask her to pray for me, that I will recognize the opportunities around me in which I can assert my Christian Faith to help shape society.  Lord, fill me with a desire to get involved in the world’s affairs, and show me how to do it well.  Saint Catherine of Siena, pray for me.  Amen.
