Hi! My name is Sister Kathryn Hermes. I belong to a congregation of women religious called the Daughters of St. Paul, and I’ve written a number of books that touch our connection to God through times of pain and uncertainty.

When we’re loved, we thrive. It’s that simple. But so many things stand in the way of accepting that God loves us all, individually, separately, specially…The truth is that you can walk free of the wounds that are binding your heart and suffocating your relationships. You can experience the total blessed forgiving love of God, and I want to accompany you on that journey.


What we're creating 


If there is one thing on which we can all agree, it is that the world needs this soul healing.

The image I use these days is that of the Japanese art of Kintsugi. A beautiful bowl or vase has fallen on the floor and is shattered, and the only thing left is to clean it up and mourn its loss. But that’s not the way the Japanese artist looks at the bowl, and that’s not how God looks at us. The Kintsugi craftsman repairs the bowl, but uses gold or silver instead of glue, leaving it often far more beautiful than it was before it was broken. We come to God broken, but he makes us more beautiful than ever before. 

Everything I do here is oriented toward soul healing, toward accompanying people into a place of love and acceptance.

What you will find here and how it will help you 


If you want to explore more, from as little as $2 per month my valued Patreon friends develop their relationship with God through:

  • over 50 audio and video programs and guides on spirituality and prayer,
  • my very popular Journalling Sheets created for each month
  • monthly HeartWork Exercise Guides
  • weekly new podcasts
The higher tiers offer you admission into My Sisters online Community for women and men seeking the sacred in everyday life, a live group meeting once a month, and at the largest tier a personal meeting with me for spiritual growth.

I will be with you as you deepen your trust in God and in your struggle to believe in God’s goodness and love. If you are plagued with self-doubt, if you’re afraid of opening up and becoming vulnerable, if you just need some clarity of mind and heart, then I can help you discover God’s grace and peace.

You can be free of the wounds that bind your heart and suffocate your relationships. But it doesn’t happen overnight; there’s no magic pill to take. There are many different paths you can take on this journey of healing, and I want you to choose the path that is right for you.

If you feel that you want to have someone beside you on your path, if your journey has sometimes felt unfocused and solitary, then becoming a member of my Patreon Group may be precisely what you’ve been yearning for. I am praying for everyone who reads these words and I ask God’s blessing on you all!


Why am I inviting you to share in my ministry



It’s my mission to help bring Christ to a broken world; but that’s your mission, too: it’s the mission of every Christian. We’re all in this together! I know that sometimes people wonder what difference they can possibly make, how their voice can be heard, how they can work for good in a world whose problems seem too vast and insurmountable to fathom, much less heal.

What I’m offering is an opportunity for you to do something, right here and right now, that will benefit the world. By becoming a patron of our mission and receiving the exclusive content that I have reserved for you, you’ll be participating in living Christ and giving Christ to a broken world. This is an opportunity for you to do something, something real and concrete and useful, about the pain and woundedness we see around us. This is your chance to help people overcome despair, regrets, and spiritual emptiness. You can take the shattered fragments of lives—your own, those around you, or even those on the other side of the world—and bring them to God, who is the ultimate Kintsugi master.

And that’s why I’m asking for your support, for you to be a patron of this work. Your support helps me and all the sisters to continue our work of extending in time the healing of Christ, to help the world’s broken pieces become whole again in Christ.


Who are we?

As I mentioned, I am a member of the Daughters of St. Paul, an international Catholic religious congregation founded in 1915 in Italy that lives and works in 52 countries around the world and is dedicated to the apostolate of proclaiming Christ through the use of media.

I live at the Daughters of St Paul Motherhouse in Boston, Massachusetts. My sisters minister to people in all situations and walks of life in Pauline Book and Media Centers which radiate Light and Hope in today's world (we have a chapel in each one), teach media literacy through the Pauline Center for Media Studies, produce books, radio programs and podcasts, websites and ebooks, and share their faith in person and on social media 24/7 in the US and English-Speaking Canada. You can read more about us at www.pauline.org.

I write about moving through our brokenness into the light of God. I’ve written a bestselling book called Surviving Depression: A Catholic Approach, and my newest book, Reclaim Regret: How God Heals Life's Disappointments , has just been released. I also do individual and group spiritual exercises through a program called Heartwork, and I contribute to a special Facebook group called My Sisters.


Thank you!

If you’ve read this far, then I’m so grateful to have shared this time together: thank you, and may God bless you! Please consider joining me on this beautiful journey… and dare to take Jesus at his word. The Master Artist always makes something beautiful… and that includes you.
