Saint Catherine of Siena by Alice Curtayne. (Augustine Pub. L3.00).
FRANCIS Thompson said that the saints have left their dents upon the world. This is certainly true of St. Catherine. This new edition of her life shows this very clearly. It is a portrait of the inner life of a saint especially revealed by her letters and of a saint who was immensely active.
She had enormous will power which revealed itself in her terrible penances and her refusal to allow seemingly insuperable problems to deflect her from her purposes. The book brings out her bitter interior struggles in the dark night of her soul.
