The pursuit of God’s wisdom may not lead to riches or earthly honours. In St Catherine’s case, this pursuit contributed to her martyrdom. She was not, however, foolish in preferring to die for Jesus rather than live only by denying Him. All the rewards that her tormentors offered her would rust, lose their beauty, or in some other way become a poor exchange for Catherine’s honesty and integrity in following Jesus Christ.
Each one will die and the things of this world end. It is only the life to come that is without end, the choice seems a simple one, surely?
St Catherine of Alexandria, pray for us all!
