"St Catherine of Siena: A Woman for our Times"
October 16, 2015 @ 7:00 PM$4 – $12
Adrian Dominican Sister Nancy Murray, OP (sister of actor Bill Murray) performs a one-woman play as St. Catherine of Siena, Doctor of the Church, who lived from 1347 to 1380. Sr. Nancy dramatizes vignettes of St Catherine’s life: from Catherine Benincasa’s childhood to her influence on political & church leaders of the time. Through the magic of theater as a “new form of preaching,” Sr. Nancy’s dramatic skills allow her audience to get to know the real St Catherine & her message about God’s love for all.
Sr. Nancy describes St Catherine’s life as “thoroughly medieval & surprisingly modern.” St Catherine was a nurse & mystic. She cared for tor the sick & poor. She was one of the most influential women of her time– visiting & writing Popes & princes on social, political & religious issues. She’s credited with influencing the end of the Avignon Papacy; returning the Pope to Rome.
