Feast Day of Saint Catherine of Alexandria Celebrated

Born early in the fourth century to pagan royalty and known for the scores who followed her in acceptance of Jesus as the Christ, Saint Catherine of Alexandria is a saint whose feast day is celebrated by Catholics and Orthodox Christians on November 25.  Known as a virgin martyr, beheaded when she refused to abandon Christianity, Saint Catherine is also called Saint Catherine of the Wheel and Saint Catherine the Martyr.

As a young woman, Saint Catherine vowed to remain a virgin for her whole life, choosing to follow Jesus who was the perfect being.  She considered herself the bride of Christ, spurning others, even royal suitors, who sought her hand in marriage.  She successfully debated the most renowned philosophers and scholars of her time, holding fast to her strong Christian faith.

At Stained Glass, Inc., this revered Saint, one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers, is celebrated in magnificent stained glass art, depicted with a wheel, which symbolizes the spiked breaking wheel destroyed by God when her tormenters attempted to use it to murder her.  During her period of imprisonment, tradition says over 200 were converted to Christianity and martryed, inspired by her example.
