Saint Catherine of Bologna
Raised among nobility, Catherine became an accomplished artist, musician and writer. She discerned a religious vocation and entered the Poor Clares. First assigned to bake, do laundry, and take care of the animals, she was eventually asked to start a new convent of Poor Clares in Bologna. She led the sisters there with wisdom, while creating religious art and writing spiritual books and poems, until her death in 1463.
