The Feast of St. Catharine of Alexandria

Sentence Do not, therefore, abandon that confidence of yours; it brings a great reward. (Hebrews 10:35)
   
Collect Almighty God, you have given extraordinary courage to your servant Catharine, that she was able to stand before the powerful and mighty of this world and fearlessly confessed the holy name of our Saviour Jesus Christ. She steadfastly kept the faith passed down by the Apostles, and calmly died a martyr’s death: prepare us O Lord, that we may confess our faith and hope at any time, and be willing to suffer indignation and adversity for the sake of our Lord; we ask this through your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.
