St. Catherine of Sweden (patron saint of protection against abortion and miscarriage)

Feast day March 22

St. Catherine is the fourth child of Saint Bridget of Sweden. At the time of her death St. Catherine was head of the
convent of Wadstena, founded by her mother; hence the name, Catherine Vastanensis, by which she is occasionally
called.

At the age of seven she was sent to the abbess of the convent of Riseberg to be educated and soon showed, like her
mother, a desire for a life of self-mortification and devotion to spiritual things.

At the command of her father, when about thirteen or fourteen years old, she married a noble of German descent,
Eggart von Kürnen. She at once persuaded her husband, who was a very religious man, to join her in a vow of chastity.
Both lived in a state of virginity and devoted themselves to the exercise of Christian perfection and active charity.
In spite of her deep love for her husband, Catherine accompanied her mother to Rome, where St. Bridget went in 1349.
Soon after her arrival in that city Catherine received news of the death of her husband in Sweden. She now lived
constantly with her mother, took an active part in St. Bridget's fruitful labors, and zealously imitated her mother's
ascetic life.

Although the distinguished and beautiful young widow was surrounded by suitors, she steadily refused all offers of
marriage. In 1372 St. Catherine and her brother, Birger, accompanied their mother on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land;
after their return to Rome St. Catherine was with her mother in the latter's last illness and death.
Catherine died on March 24, 1381, mourned like her mother by the whole of Sweden. In 1484 Innocent VIII gave
permission for her veneration as a saint and her feast was assigned to March 22 in the Roman martyrology.
Catherine wrote a devotional work entitled "Consolation of the Soul" (Sielinna Troest), largely composed of citations
from the Scriptures and from early religious books; no copy is known to exist. Generally she is represented with a hind
at her side, which is said to have come to her aid when unchaste youths sought to ensnare her.
