Saint Catherine de Ricci was born to a noble Italian family.  As a child, she spoke to her guardian angel, prayed the rosary, and did penances. At 14, she entered the Dominicans and became perpetual prioress at 25. Catherine was a great mystic and could bilocate. She is said to have received a ring from the Lord as a sign of her espousal to him; to her, it appeared as gold set with a diamond; everyone else saw a red lozenge and a circlet around her finger. At 20, she received the stigmata and experienced the “Ecstasy of the Passion” for 12 years. Her sanctity drew many for advice and prayers, including three future popes. She died in 1589 after a long illness.
