St. Catherine of Siena was born in Siena, Italy and at the age of 21 had a mystical marriage to Christ in which she claimed he gave her a ring (invisible to others). In the vision she was ordered to serve the sick and the poor; she soon gained followers. She also became involved in political affairs and began dictating letters to scribes, playing a large role in persuading the Pope in Avignon to return to Rome. Her letters to him had a childlike warmth and intimacy as she called him “Babbo” (daddy in Italian). In 1970 she was declared a Doctor of the Church for her many contributions.
