The Martyrdom of St Catherine of Alexandria

The Martyrdom of St Catherine of alexandria, Altarpiece in the Cesi chapel, Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome, by Girolamo Siciolante da Sermoneta (1521–c. 1580). From Wikipedia.

O God, who didst endue blessed Catherine, thy Virgin, with grace to witness a good confession, and to suffer gladly for thy name: Grant us, we beseech thee, so to follow her stedfastness that we may attain to the glorious fellowship of thy Saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
¶ Or this:
Lord, give thine angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways; and bear us safe in their hands through life and death to meet the Lord and be ever with him, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
