#18: The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Siena, Book 3: A Treatise on Prayer

This part was really long, but treated of a variety of interesting subjects, from the value of tears to a good death. Of most note for modern listeners is the discourse on bad priests. Sadly, everything old does become new again. I was also particularly interested in the closely related section on the Eucharist, with the comparison of the Son to a fire which can be infinitely distributed without losing substance, and to the Sun.

There's still one more part to go, but you can always read the whole thing over at CCEL. You can access the previous parts here: Book 1 and Book 2.
