Saint Mary Magdalen de Pazzi and her visions of Purgatory
It is the Sixteenth Century. We are again at a time of struggle and crisis in the world and in the Church. A priest will cause many innocent lambs, not aware of his disobedience and betrayal to the Church, to stray. As always, when the Church is under attack and things look hopeless, God raises up a powerful Saint to save His Church. St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi was one of those Saints. She was born in Florence, Italy, into a very prominent and most influential family; both sides of her parents’ families were close friends of the ruling Medici family. They would be responsible for contributing, down through the history of Florence, many highly acclaimed statesmen, but none whose mark would be so profoundly and everlastingly felt on the Church and the world, as a Carmelite Nun from their ranks who would far surpass their fleeting fame.
She was baptized Catherine after St. Catherine of Siena. From her earliest years, she showed an affinity for the religious life. When her father was appointed Governor of Cortona, Catherine was placed in a convent school there and learned to love the prayerful and holy life, she saw so authentically lived out each day. When she made her decision to enter the Carmelite Order, at first her family objected; they had plans to marry her off to another leading family, uniting the two families into one major entity, a dynasty more powerful than either had been before.
