Who is Saint Catherine , Brief about her life 
The Holy Great Martyr Catherine was the girl of Constus, the legislative leader of Alexandrian Egypt amid the rule of the sovereign Maximian (305-313). Living in the capital, the focal point of Hellenistic learning, and she had of an uncommon charm and cleverness, Catherine got a phenomenal Learning, concentrate the works of the best savants and educators of times long past. Young fellows from the most commendable groups of the domain looked for the hand of the wonderful Catherine, however she was not keen on any of them. She told her parents that she would go into marriage just with somebody who outperformed her in respectability, riches, attractiveness and shrewdness.
 Catherine's mom, a hidden Christian, sent her to her own particular profound Father, a righteous Elder living in a given in outside the city, for guidance. In the wake of hearing in to Catherine, the Elder said that he knew about a Youth who outperformed her in everything. "His face is more brilliant than the sparkling of the sun, and all of creation is administered by His astuteness. His wealth are given to every one of the countries of the world, yet they never decrease. His sympathy is unequaled."
This depiction of the Heavenly Bridegroom delivered in the spirit of the blessed lady an impassioned craving to see Him. "In the event that you do as I let you know," said the minister, "you will look at the face of this distinguished man." the Elder gave Catherine a symbol of the Theotokos with the perfect Child Jesus on Her arm and advised her to to pray with faith to the Queen of Heaven, the Mother of the Heavenly Bridegroom, and She would hear Catherine and allow her heart's longing.
 Catherine prayed throughout the night and was allowed to see the Most Holy Virgin, Who said Her Divine Son, "Observe Thy handmaiden Catherine, how equitable and upright she is." But the Child dismissed His face from her expression, "No, she is terrible and unbelieving. She is an absurd poor person, and I can't stand to take a gander at her until she forsakes her impiety.
Catherine returned again to the Elder profoundly disheartened, and revealed to him what she had found in the fantasy. He affectionately got her, instructed her in the faith of Christ, advice her to maintain her tidiness and honesty and to always pray . She then got the Mystery of blessed Baptism from him. Again Saint Catherine had a dream of the Most Holy Theotokos with Her Child. Presently the Lord took tenderly at her and gave her a delightful ring, a wondrous token of her engagement to the Heavenly Bridegroom (This ring is still on her hand).
Around then the ruler Maximian was in Alexandria for a pagan celebration. In this way, the festival was particularly stunning and swarmed. The cries of the conciliatory creatures, the smoke and the possess a scent reminiscent of the penances, the interminable blasting of flames, and the clamoring swarms at the fields debased the city of Alexandria. Human casualties additionally were brought, the inquisitors of Christ, the individuals who might not deny Him under torment. They were sentenced to death in the fire. The saint’s love for the Christian saints and her fervent desire to mitigate their sufferings forced Catherine to talk to heathen vicar and to the ruler Maximian.
 Presenting herself, the holy person admitted her confidence in the One True God and with astuteness uncovered the mistakes of the agnostics. The magnificence of the lady enthralled the emperor. Keeping in mind the end goal to persuade her and to demonstrate the prevalence of agnostic knowledge, the ruler requested fifty of the most learned rationalists and rhetoricians of the Empire to debate with her, however the holy person showed signs of improvement of the insightful men, so they came to put stock in Christ themselves. Holy person Catherine made the Sign of the Cross over the saints, and they accepted death for Christ and were burned alive by request of the emperor.
 Maximian, no longer wanting to persuade the holy person, attempted to tempt her with the guarantee of wealth and acclaim. facing an irate refusal, the emperor offered requests to subject the holy person to appalling torments and after that toss her behind bars. The Empress Augusta, who had heard much about the holy person, needed to see her. She swayed the military officer Porphyrius to go with her to the jail with a unit of troopers. The ruler was inspired by the solid soul of Saint Catherine, whose face was brilliant with awesome beauty. The sacred saint disclosed the Christian instructing to them, and they were changed over to Christ.
 On the next day they again conveyed the saint to the judgment court where, under the danger of being broken on the wheel, they encouraged that she deny the Christian Faith and offer relinquish to the divine beings. The holy person steadfastly admitted Christ and she herself moved toward the wheels; yet a blessed messenger crushed the instruments of execution, which broke into pieces with numerous agnostics standing adjacent.
 Having seen this ponder, the Empress Augusta and the majestic retainer Porphyrius with 200 officers admitted their confidence in Christ before everybody, and they were decapitated. Maximian again attempted to allure the blessed saint, proposing marriage to her, and again he was can't. Holy person Catherine immovably admitted her loyalty to the great Bridegroom Christ, and with a prayer  to Him she herself lay her head on the square underneath the killer's sword.
 The relics of Saint Catherine were taken by the holy messengers to Mount Sinai. In the 6th century,, the admired head and left hand of the heavenly saint were found through a revelation and transferred with respect to a recently developed church of the Sinai religious community, established by the sacred Emperor Justinian (November 14).
