Saint: St Catherine of Sienna

St Catherine of Sienna, Virgin and Doctor(Teacher) of the Church is one of the great figures of Christianity.  She worked for the poor and sick, and especially sought to bring sinners back to their religion.  She laboured to bring the Popes back to Rome from Avignon and had great influence on the affairs of the Church.  Her writings still inspire today.  Pope Pius XII made her protectress of nurses.  In the banner she is depicted tending the sick.
