St. Catherine Of Alexandria, VM - November 25th

"O God, Who on the top of Mount Sinai didst give the Law to Moses, and dist, by means of Thy holy Angels, wondrously convey thither the body of blessed Catherine, Thy Virgin and Martyr: grant, we beseech Thee, that, through her merits and intercession, we may be able to reach that mountain which is Christ: Who with Thee liveth and reigneth." - Roman Catholic Daily Missal, 1962

 

St. Catherine was a noble virgin of Alexandria Egypt who united a zeal tor the liberal arts with an ardent faith. When she saw many Christians given up to torture by Maximin, she went to him and strongly stated the necessity of faith in Christ for salvation. Wondering at her wisdom, the tyrant commanded her to be held, and, assembling the most learned men from all sides, he tried to persuade her to turn to the worship of idols. But the opposite happened; many of those men were convinced by Catherine’s wise reasoning and embraced the faith of Christ and did not hesitate to die for it. Because of this, Maximim tried promises first and then threats to win Catherine from her conviction; but, when nothing succeeded, he had her beheaded with an axe. - Father Carota, Traditional Catholic Priest, 2015
