Benedict on Bologna

The Holy Father on Poor Clare abbess St Catherine of Bologna, who sounds like our contemporary:
In his catechesis, the pope described the life of St. Catherine of Bologna, an abbess of the Poor Clares and "a woman of great wisdom and culture" who lived in the 15th century.

Despite the many centuries that separate her time and today, St. Catherine still speaks to modern men and women, said the pope.
