St. Catherine of Alexandria, an early Christian martyr, is one of “Fourteen Holy Helpers.” These are saints who, together, are believed to be especially strong intercessors. In German they are called the “nothelfer,” the helpers of those in need. May we strive to be “nothelfer,” and may we ask St. Catherine to pray for us and aid us in all our good endeavors.
