The Roman Martyrology reading for Feast of St. Catherine of Alexandria is especially beautiful and worthy of meditation:


Roman Martyrology - November 25th
November 25th-on this date in various years-

At Alexandria, St. Catherine, virgin and martyr, in the time of Emperor Maximinus. For the confession of the Christian faith she was cast into prison, endured a long scourging with whips set with metal, and finally ended her martyrdom by having her head cut off. Her body was miraculously carried by angels to Mount Sinai, where pious veneration is paid to it by great gatherings of Christians.
