|St. Catherine the Great Martyr|
Let us praise the divine Catherine,
the all-lauded bride of Christ,
the protectress of Sinai, our help and support;
for with the sword of the Spirit,
she brilliantly silenced the sagacious ones of the impious.
And being crowned now as a martyr, she asketh great mercy for all.
O ye martyr-lovers,
rise up in solemn chorus now in inspired manner
and acclaim the supremely wise Catherine;
for she preached Christ in the stadium and trampled upon the serpent,
and spat upon the knowledge of the philosophers.
