St. Catherine of Alexandria
As one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers, this 4th-century martyr is a very powerful intercessor and actually is said to have spoken to Joan of Arc. Her sheer faith in God gave her the bravery to stand up to powerful men and their persecutions of the Christians. Having consecrated her virginity to Jesus, the young noble girl underwent torture and was eventually beheaded for her faith.
