St. Catherine of Alexandria

In the ancient world, Alexandria was the city with the best schools and wisest teachers. By the age of eighteen, Catherine was well-known for her wisdom and goodness, even though she was a Christian. The ruler of the city wanted her to commit a sin and give up her Christian faith. She respectfully refused. He brought several of his wisest teachers to talk her out of her faith. Catherine answered all their objections and was able to explain the faith calmly. The ruler grew angry as Catherine was speaking and he ordered her to be put to death.
