Today is the optional memorial of St. Catherine of Alexandria.
St. Catherine was a 4th century martyr. The symbol commonly associated with her is a wheel or a wheel with knives, since she was tortured and died on a wheel with pointed knives. It is said that from her lacerated body prayers ascended to heaven and the machine fell to pieces. Wagon wheel pasta with its wheel shape would be a fitting option for a meal today. I don't have a particular recipe in mind - any meal that would call for pasta would work to incorporate this symbol.Pin It
