Happy name day to our Catherine! She was actually named specifically for our dear St. Catherine of Laboure, but we like to lay claim to all the heavenly help from friends we can get -- and St. Catherine of Siena is truly one of the greats of the heavenly court! St. Catherine, Pray For Us! Pray for our Church! Pray for the Papacy!
