SAINT OF THE DAY
St. Catherine of Alexandria
St. Catherine was an early Christian virgin and martyr. She was born to a noble family and converted to Christianity through a vision. She was known as a skillful debater who defeated pagan philosophers in argument and won many over to the faith. Many of her fellow Christians were put to death under the reign of the Emperor Maxentius. He offered Catherine a royal marriage if she would denounce her faith, but she refused. She was imprisoned and through her fame converted his wife and two hundred of his soldiers. When this was discovered, he had them all put to death. St. Catherine is the patroness of philosophers, preachers, lawyers, apologists, scholars, and librarians, to name a few. Her feast day is celebrated on November 25th.
