St Catherine Fieschi Adorno
During her intense life (1447-1510) the Saint seems us unexpected relevant. She reproduces among lights and shadows the common experience of everybody’s life.
Daughter of the Genoese aristocracy, she raised her nobility to a supernatural level. She became humble and a capable orderly among the incurable patients of the hospital Pammatone. Such as neglected wife of the intemperate Giuliano Adorno, she could “take her revenge” as Christian wife: she nursed him with love care in his last years and helped him to rediscover Faith and Charity.
She is the mystic who gave the world the “Treatise about Purgatory”,
and who roused, with her uncontainable love for God, the hearts of many apostles
of charity, who consider her as their inspirer and guide.
