The Saint Did Not Make a Move

One day, a priest who did not believe in the special gift of the Saint (St. Catherine of Siena) responded to a request to bring Holy Communion to St. Catherine when she was sick, but with a host that was not consecrated. At the entance of the priest, the Saint did not make a move, as she was accustomed to do, in order to adore the Eucharistic Jesus, but instead, fixed her eyes on the priest and reproved him openly for the deception and for the sin of idolatry in he wanted her to fall.*
