St. Catherine of Alexandria (also Catharine) (November 25th), virgin and martyr is invoked against diseases of the tongue, protection against a sudden and unprovided death. She is the patroness of Christian philosophers, of maidens, preachers, wheelwrights, and mechanics. She is also invoked by students, orators, and barristers as "the wise counselor." She is pictured with a broken wheel.
