FEAST OF CATHERINE OF ALEXANDRIA, VIRGIN, MARTYR

Lessons in wisdom
Saint Catherine of Alexandria is traditionally believed to have been martyred in the year 305 A.D. during a time of heavy Roman persecution in the early church. Of noble origins and unsurpassed beauty and brilliance, she is said to have announced to her parents that she would only marry someone who surpassed her in loveliness, intelligence, wealth, and social status—a foreshadowing of her eventual commitment to Christ. Executed by the Roman emperor because of her extraordinary success in attracting converts to Christianity, Catherine became patron saint of libraries and librarians as well as all those associated with teaching. Thank someone in your life who brings wisdom and faith together.
