This St Catherine of Sweden (Miscarriage) Healing Holy Card with Medal includes a full-color holy card with two healing prayers, a saint biography and an oxidized silver patron saint medal.
Saint Catherine was born in 1332 and was the daughter of Saint Bridget of Sweden and of Ulpho, Prince of Nericia. At the age of 14, Catherine married a religious noble of German descent. Each took a vow of chastity and devoted themselves to Christian perfection.
After the death of her father in 1348, Catherine joined her mother in her well-known pilgrimages and practices of devotion and penance in Rome. Not long afterward, Catherine's husband died. For the next 25 years, Catherine worked with the poor by teaching them life skills and religion. She followed her mother's example to love and guide others by counseling women who had suffered a miscarriage or illness during their pregnancy. When Catherine's mother died in 1373, she returned to Sweden and became abbess of her mother's convent, the motherhouse of the Bridgettine Order.
She died in 1381 and was canonized in 1484.
Saint Catherine of Sweden is recognized today as the patroness of those who have suffered a miscarriage. Her feast day is March 22nd.
