St. Catherine of Alexandria


This design, donated to the monastery by a friend, is an iconographic drawing of St. Catherine, the Great Martyr of Alexandria. Her story is a classic one, illustrating both the honored position of women in the Orthodox Church, as well as the truth that martyrs lay down their lives freely; they cannot be killed "by accident."

It is said that Catherine was a high-born, learned and beautiful maiden of Alexandria, who publicly debated the Christian faith with a number of pagan philosophers who were put to shame by her wisdom. The emperor fell in love with her, and when she would not marry him, had her put to torture before execution. She is said to have survived incredible tortures, including being broken on a spiked wheel, which has become her symbol. Numbers of people were converted by her example. She was finally beheaded. Her relics are to be found at St. Catherine's monastery on Mt. Sinai in Egypt.

The reverse of this design reads: "By her wisdom and great deeds St. Catherine trampled the snares of the enemy. By her prayers, O God, deliver us from all harm."
