Catherine was born into a noble family in Egypt around the year 292. When Catherine grew up and was considering marriage, she had a wonderful dream in which the Blessed Mother presented Jesus to her. Catherine fell in love with Jesus and wanted to be His spouse, but He refused because she was not baptized.
Catherine learned from a hermit that her sins kept Jesus from being her spouse. After her baptism, Catherine showed great love for the poor and bravely defended her faith. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of St. Catherine of Alexandria, who loved Jesus above all others and tried her best to please Him.
