Saint of the Day

St. Catherine of Genoa (1447-1510)
Catherine married at age sixteen. Careless, cruel, and unfaithful, her husband brought them to bankruptcy. She converted him through her prayer and fidelity, and the two lived together chastely the rest of their lives, working with the sick and poor.

Reflections from the Saints

If it were given to a man to see virtue's reward in the next world, he would occupy his intellect, memory and will in nothing but good works, careless of danger or fatigue.

Life in Christ: Catechism #2411

Contracts are subject to commutative justice which regulates exchanges between persons and between institutions in accordance with a strict respect for their rights. Commutative justice obliges strictly; it requires safeguarding property rights, paying debts, and fulfilling obligations freely contracted. Without commutative justice, no other form of justice is possible.
