Sharing My Songs – “The Fragrance of the Rose” 4/30/18

My parish of St. Kathryn’s in Hudson, NH, is named for St. Catherine of Siena, an amazing woman who lived in the 14th century. During that time of turbulence in the Catholic church, she was not afraid to speak truth to power…and that included the pope! She was also a mystic and visionary. She is one of only four women to hold the title of Doctor of the Church, recognizing the great influence her writings have had in the church. “The Fragrance of the Rose” is based on a passage from the “Dialogue of St. Catherine.”
