St. Catherine became head of the convent founded by her saintly mother.
She wrote a pious work titled, “Consolation of the Soul” (in medieval Swedish Siælinna tröst, or Själens tröst in modern Swedish); according to some sources a dated copy from 1407 is still in existence.
St. Catherine worked towards the canonization of her mother in Rome. She had a close friendship with St. Catherine of Siena.
