The Feast of St. Catherine of Alexandria

Gentle Reader: You can probably guess that my favorite painting of St. Catherine of Alexandria is the Caravaggio in my banner (!) but here are some others that I enjoy!

St. Catherine of Alexandria pray for us!





When picking a photo of St. Catherine for my blog banner, it was a contest between the Caravaggio I went with and this one (below) of "St Catherine of Alexandria Reading a Book" by Onorio Marinari. I went with the Caravaggio because I'm a huge fan of his work and I felt his St. Catherine was a bit more recognizable. However, I think the Marinari is reflective of the way I peer at books! LOL!
