Video: The Biggest Thing St. Catherine of Siena Can Teach Us

Aleteia - published on 01/06/15

Fr. Robert Barron introduces us to one of the "pivotal players" in his new series.

The is the second "teaser" video for Fr. Robert Barron’s new series, Pivotal Players. The multi-part film series will be following the footsteps and discussing the influence of a some of the holy people who have shaped the Church over the millenia, as well as changed the course of civilization. Catherine of Siena is one of them, and as Fr. Barron reminds us, she is defintely an interesting saint to reflect on—bold, eccentric, courageous, and most notable for how she shows us that there is much more to life than what meets the eye.
