St. Catherine is worth a mention

March 29, 2009

I read Susan Spano's article on Siena with interest ["Tuscany in Repose," March 15], but was disappointed that it did not mention St. Catherine of Siena, whose head and thumb are on display in the Basilica of San Domenico. She is the patroness saint of Italy.

Writing about Siena without mentioning St. Catherine is like writing about Assisi without mentioning St. Francis.
