Saint Catherine of Siena coloring page: April 29th
Catherine was one of 25 children. By age 6, Catherine began having visions of angels, saints, Mary, and Christ. Her parents were very anxious that their daughter find a suitable husband. Catherine, however, did not want suitors, as she desired to give her life to Christ. One day, Catherine cut off all of her beautiful hair, to show her parents how sincere her love for Christ was. Later, Catherine became a third order Dominican. In 1375, she received the stigmata, although it was never visible until after her death. Catherine was also responsible for persuading the Pope to move back to Rome from Avignon. She was only 33 when she died, and was made a Doctor of the Church. Her body is incorrupt.
