The book is a dialogue between St Catherine and God and Him speaking to her in regards to some questions she has. She is a saint and doctor of the Church at the end it deals with the end of her life which was really good. For the religiously-inclined, the influence of St. Catherine remains strong; among the first statements of intent made by both Pope John Paul I and John Paul II was that, at the earliest opportunity, they would worship at her shrine in the church of San Domenico in Siena.

Saint Catherine of Siena and Her Times tells her story. Young Catherine’s call to live a cloistered life of prayer was frustrated not only by the social needs of her day (caring for those suffering from poverty and the plague) but also by.
