What is the real meaning of life?
Where shall we look for it?
In pleasure and entertainment?
See, what answer the wise, rich and beautiful princess
Saint Catherine of Alexandria has to give you in this book.
The life of Saint Catherine the Great Martyr teaches us that we must look for the true treasure, the meaning of life: but not in the knowledge and the things of this world, nor in riches, or in noble descent, or in any other worldly attraction. These are good in themselves, but they all have an expiry date. They do not last. We can only find true happiness and real meaning in our lives when our guide is Christ Himself, within the Church that is founded by the “Bridegroom” of Saint Catherine’s eternal soul.
Our saint΄s day, or name day, is when we honor the memory of the particular saint whose name we bear, and which in Greece is usually our grandfather΄s or grandmother΄s name as well. We give joy to our Saints when we arrange to celebrate a liturgy in our church on that day, but even more when we try and become like them in our acts and thoughts. Saint Catherine, for example, rejoices when we try to distinguish good from evil, not according to what people around us think is right, but taking as our foundation and compass the teachings of Christ through His Saints.
Here is a couple of the many positive comments written about "Saint Catherine":
Adrianne Evans from FL wrote: "Your book Saint Catherine is absolutely beautiful! And not just to look at. I have never read a book that dealt with martyrdom so gently and so well, especially for children. It truly conveys the attitude of Psalm 116:15. “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.”
