Saint Catherine of Genoa

Saint Catherine of Genoa (1447-1510)
Acrylic painting, wool threads and wood piece, painted gold

Having come to the point of twenty-four carats,
gold cannot be purified any further;
and this is what happens to the soul
in the fire of God’s love.
(Purgation and Purgatory 80)

She was known for her doctrine of the purgatory, seeing it as an interior fire that one needs to be purified in order to approach God.
