What a beautiful, concise history of Catherine’s life and her love and work for the Church. May she always be an inspiration to all of us as we follow in her footsteps.
How marvelous to fall in love with Catherine all over! Thanks for reigniting her life in my heart. When I read her life story a few years ago I was forever inspired and set on fire. Thanks Catherine Walsh you stand well in her shoes. You were approximately named!
Catherine— well done! I certainly appreciated your preaching,
Thank you! It was a wonderful short history of her life and her deep love of God. I can see her walking with a stride to help us to go on in her way of love. Thank you.
