“If you are what you should be you will set the whole world ablaze!” – Saint Catherine of Siena
Our Set the World Ablaze! Prayer Pillowcase offers both a challenge and an invitation to check in with God about what we're doing and why, and to listen for His answer. Saint Catherine of Siena was known for her holy and strict lifestyle, was a reformer, political activist, defender of popes and an “influencer” of her times. She led an active, prayerful life while choosing to become neither a nun nor a wife or mother.
She declared that if we are who we should be, we can achieve great and wonderful things. Whose to say who we should be? God! Having a Set the World Ablaze! Prayer Pillowcase nearby reminds us to accept Saint Catherine’s invitation by seeking contemplative moments and more time in prayer.
