St. Catherine of Siena receives the Stigmata ~ Though always suffering terrible physical pain, living for long intervals on practically no food except for the Blessed Sacrament, she was radiantly happy & full of wisdom. She was subjected to persecution, even of her own Dominican Order by the Sisters because of jealously. She asked Jesus to make her first visible stigmata invisible so as not to commit the sin of pride. When she died it became visible.
ordopraedicatorum: St. Catherine of Siena was greatly devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus; she made an entire donation of her heart to her Divine Spouse and she obtained the Heart of Jesus in exchange.
