Saint Catherine of Alexandria


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 set to be tortured on a wheel with pointed knives. It is said that the machine fell to pieces when she touched it. She was then beheaded. 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.
