"Eternal greatness! You made yourself low and small to make mankind great."

While in an ecstatic trance, St. Catherine of Siena dictated The Dialogue. In this intense and searching work, she offers up petitions to God, filling her conversation with instruction on discernment, true and false spiritual emotion, obedience and truth, and revealing her famous image of Christ as the Bridge. Catherine's brilliant insights into the nature of the spiritual life have motivated Christians for centuries to unite a life of prayer with a life of action.

"This have I told you, my sweetest daughter, that you might know the perfection of this union-producing state, when the eye of the intellect is ravished by the fire of my charity, in which it receives supernatural light. With this light the souls in the state of union love me, because love follows the intellect, and the more it knows the more it can love." (from the book)

About the Author

By the time St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380) was twenty-one, she had experienced her mystical "marriage" to Christ and thrown herself tirelessly into ministering to the poor and sick. Throughout her active ministry, Catherine pursued truth through prayer, reading, and spiritual experience. She is one of only a few women in history to be recognized as a theological "Doctor" of the Catholic Church.
