St. Catherine of Siena: Strong Woman of God, Model for a New Missionary Age - Christian Saints & Heroes - News - Catholic Online

This is the feast day of a great woman saint, Catherine of Siena who called the Papacy back from the brink, challenging the Church's leadership to fulfill its mandate of guiding the faithful from Rome. It reminds me that in every age there have been voices which have fulfilled the same role. One such voice today belongs to Sylvia MacEacheran who hosts a blog which deals with the issues of abuse within the Church in Canada. I don't always agree with Sylvia in particular cases, but I have always supported her goal of demanding the Bishops act justly in addressing their obligation in protecting the faithful from the predations of criminal clergy. 



Please take a moment today to offer a prayer for this good woman. The task she has taken upon herself is to a large degree thankless, especially for somone who is a faithful and practicing Catholic.  



Good St. Catherine... guide and protect Sylvia in her ministry. Help her to keep our greatest of all gifts, our children, safe and the Church pure.
