Episode 6 St. Catherine of Siena: Her Life and Teachings with Fr. Thomas McDermott-
In this episode, Fr. McDermott begins a more generalized discussion on the teachings of St. Catherine of Siena.
In this episode, Fr. McDermott aids in our understanding of St. Catherine’s teachings on the “Blood of Christ” and it’s context from Sacred Scripture and Medieval sensibilities. He discusses “The Christ Bridge” as a central image in St. Catherine’s writings and one’s spiritual journey. The flowering of baptismal grace is exemplified in this teaching.

Thank you for this series of podcasts. I’m very impressed by how much there is to learn from a woman who lived in the 1300’s. She’s so interesting. Also reading Sigrid Undset’s book which is mentioned by Fr. McDermott.
