Happy Feast of St. Catherine of Alexandria!
Patron of this blog and my Confirmation Saint.
Why did I pick St. Catherine of Alexandria? Numerous reasons. However, I see her as a bridge between my two lives. Back in my ultra-liberal feminism progressive Catholic days, St. Catherine was a symbol of a strong woman who dared to argue with the dominant authorities of her time (read: men). Today, I've come to realize that is only part of who St. Catherine was: she was a strong defender of the Faith, a teacher, a philosopher, a virgin who died for her love of Christ.
God willing, maybe one day I'll be as complete.
Oh, yeah, it's also Thanksiving Day in the U.S..
St. Catherine, pray for us!
