Catherine Payton

Catherine Payton (1727-1794 — also known by her married name, Catherine Phillips) was an eminently gifted minister in the Society of Friends, who traveled almost continually for forty years in the service of Truth throughout England, Ireland, and North America. Her journal and letters clearly demonstrate a life entirely surrendered to the cross of Christ, a mind supplied with wisdom and utterance from on high, and a heart filled with love for God and for mankind.

About two years ago, to my humble admiration, in a season of great proving of spirit it was so renewed and sealed to me (the inward attraction being so strong, and the evidence so undoubtable) that [Catherine Payton] was a faithful follower of the Lamb; for a language sweetly flowed through my mind, ‘I have chosen her and she is mine’—so that I not only rejoiced, but was strengthened.

Letter to a Backslidden Brother

Catherine Payton (1727-1794, also known by her married name, Catherine Phillips) was a well-known and highly-esteemed minister in the Society of Friends, whose labors in the gospel turned many from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God. This selection from her journal contains an autobiographical portion, in which Catherine describes her early experiences of the mercies and judgments of the Lord, and her call to the ministry, followed by a sample of her letters which manifest her extraordinary gift of administering heavenly counsel and admonition to a variety of spiritual conditions.
