St Catherine of Alexandria 2017

Let Holy Mother the Church gladly receive the glorious solemnity of the Virgin Saint Catherine. Hail, o virgin, worthy of God, hail, sweet and kindly one, obtain for us the joy which you possess with glory. (The antiphon at the Magnificat for First Vespers of the proper Office of St Catherine.)
St Catherine of Alexandria, by Caravaggio, ca. 1598
Aña Inclyta sanctae * Vírginis Catharínæ solemnia suscipiat alácriter pia mater Ecclesia. Ave Virgo Deo digna, ave dulcis et benigna: óbtine nobis gaudia, quæ póssides cum gloria.
