ST. CATHERINE OF SWEDEN – Patron of Miscarries/Anti-Abortion
Catherine married young, and both she and her husband lived a life of virginity and chastity until his death. She later travelled and lived with her mother, St. Bridget of Sweden, who had called for the Order of the Holy Savior, or the Bridgetteines. After the death of St. Bridget, Catherine fully formed the order and soon became friends with St. Catherine of Siena.
