    St.Catherine de Ricci, I am delighted to know you through this website. What a splendid, marvellous and holy life you have led. Now with the coming of Ash Wednesday and Lent give us a holy devotion to Christ's Passion, suffering and death. Dear St. Catherine de Ricci grant us the desire to pray often and to grow in love of Christ. In true gratitude to Christ help us to transform and change from being self-righteous, selfish individuals to being Christ-centred. Amen
