Francell Lee Schrader has read and studied the three hundred and sixty-four impressive letters of this fourteenth century saint still extant and has included many beautiful and poetic quotations from them in this volume. Saint Catherine of Siena was born in Renaissance Italy in 1347. She was not only a person of great goodness, but she was really the first lady to use her own brilliant intellect and Divine Light in the world of men and actually bring about many changes. Her correspondence with King, Pope, Prince, and Military Leader achieved amazing things, and as an International Peace Negotiator she prevented some wars and brought Peace in others. All this in an age where no lady had ever before attempted such things.
Saint Catherine of Siena is one of only three ladies to have the Title "Doctor of the Church." The author sees in Catherine, who has been one of her favorite saints since childhood, a forerunner of all the marvelous brilliant lady leaders doing great things in the present day, and she hopes readers will find her story a joy and perhaps an inspiration for their own lives.
This book is a work of art containing vivid descriptions of many beauties of the Renaissance, which the reader will treasure always.
