New icon - St. Catherine of Alexandria

Abigail (Katharina)'s patron saint.  We got her this one for an early birthday present, since the previous one was tiny in comparison to the others.  We put the smaller one over her bed at her request.

Let us praise the all-lauded and noble bride of Christ, the godly Catherine, the guardian of Sinai and its defense, who is also our support and succour and our help; for with the Holy Spirit's sword she hath silenced brilliantly the clever among the godless;and being crowned as a martyr, she now doth ask great mercy for us all.   
-- Troparion for the Feast of St. Catherine
