Prayer to St. Catherine
Dominican Tertiary and Doctor of the Church, you were full of wisdom, the
special gift of God, and you knew how to guide even Pontiffs, as well as
how to extinguish fiery passions and restore true peace among people. How
inspiring your spiritual writings and how heroic your abstemious life!
Fires are today unfortunately all too common, some even caused by criminal
persons. Please protect and encourage firefighters in their heroic efforts
to save lives. Amen.
