St. Catherine of Vadstena was daughter of St. Bridget of Sweden. She persuaded her husband to take a vow of absolute chastity, and both lived in a state of virginity.

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.
