Saint Of The Day For November 25: Saint Catherine of Alexandria

Saint Catherine’s Story: according to the Legend of St. Catherine, this young woman converted to Christianity after receiving a vision.

At the age of 18, she debated 50 pagan philosophers.

Amazed at her wisdom and debating skills, they became Christians—as did about 200 soldiers and members of the emperor’s family.

All of them were martyred.

Saint Catherine’s Death

Sentenced to be executed on a spiked wheel, Catherine touched the wheel and it shattered.

She was beheaded. Centuries later, angels are said to have carried the body of Saint Catherine to a monastery at the foot of Mt. Sinai.

The Devotion of St Catherine

Spread as a result of the Crusades.

She was invoked as the patroness of students, teachers, librarians and lawyers.

Catherine is one of the 14 Holy Helpers, venerated especially in Germany and Hungary.
