In 1376, Catherine requested an audience with Pope Gregory XI in order to convince him to return to his people in Rome. The pope did so within a year later, though what part Catherine's appeal had in this decision is still a topic of debate. It is evident, however, that he found her diplomatic skills exceptional, as he personally requested that she journey to Florence as a Roman ambassador in 1377, which ended in success.
Catherine was a supporter of Pope Urban VI, despite his dire unpopularity. He requested that she reside in his court, and she did so, spending her time arranging meetings and writing letters in attempts to convince others of his legitimacy.
Catherine was made a saint in 1461 by Pope Pius II, 81 years after her death.
