Important Announcement - Please Read

A New Orthodox Marketplace Website is Coming!

The Orthodox Marketplace online web store and the Department of Religious Education's catalog store are in the process of merging operations.

While we are working out the details of this transition, the Orthodox Marketplace website will suspend sales functionality of the site. Customers will be able to browse the catalog, log in and check on the status of outstanding orders and order history (including downloads).

However, the cart and checkout features will be disabled.

If you wish to purchase items in the interim, a subset of our product catalog is still available from our Amazon Storefront.

We expect the new Orthodox Marketplace and Resource Center website to launch later this summer.

What is the real meaning of life? Where shall we look for it? In pleasure and entertainment? In knowledge? In riches? In travelling? In beauty? See, what answer the wise, rich and beautiful princess Saint Catherine of Alexandria has to give you in this book. The life of Saint Catherine the Great Martyr teaches us that we must look for the true treasure, the meaning of life: but not in the knowledge and the things of this world, nor in riches, or in noble descent, or in any other worldly attraction. These are good in themselves, but they all have an expiry date. They do not last. We can only find true happiness and real meaning in our lives when our guide is Christ Himself, within the Church that is founded by the “Bridegroom” of Saint Catherine’s eternal soul. Our saint´s day, or name day, is when we honor the memory of the particular saint whose name we bear, and which is generally our grandfather´s or grandmother´s name as well. We give joy to our Saints when we arrange to celebrate a liturgy in our church on that day, but even more when we try and become like them in our acts and thoughts. Saint Catherine, for example, rejoices when we try to distinguish good from evil, not according to what people around us think is right, but taking as our foundation and compass the teachings of Christ through His Saints.
