St Catherine receives the Sacred Heart

"In your nature, eternal Godhead, I shall come to know my nature. And what is my nature, boundless love? It is fire, because you are nothing but a fire of love. And you have given humankind a share in this nature, for by the fire of love you created us. And so with all other people and every created thing; you made them out of love." - from a prayer of St Catherine of Siena. In this detail from a chapel in Santa Sabina, Rome, St Catherine receives the heart of Christ, a sign of divine love and mercy. 29 April is usually the feast of St Catherine of Siena, the Dominican saint and mystic.
