Saint Catherine was born in Alexandria, Egypt from a royal family and already at a young age she had a lot of knowledge. She converted to Christianity and performed great works in favor of Christians, which angered the pagans who ordered her imprisonment.
They tried to make her convert but not only did that not happen, but she managed to convince many about the True God.
After this, the Prefect was enraged and ordered the torture and beheading of Saint Catherine.
