Liturgical/devotional association: 
St. Catherine of Alexandria
Full text: 

Hac in die laudes piae
Caeli iungant harmoniae
Plausus et tripudia,

Qua conscendit ad divina
Christi sponsa Caterina
Sublimi victoria.

Virgo dolens Christianos
A profanis ut profanos
Subici martirio,

Christum palam confitetur
Neque super hoc veretur
Opponi Maxentio.

 

English translation: 

On this day may the pious harmonies of heaven add applauses and dances to the praises,

because of Catherine, Christ's bride, who ascends to divinity in a proud victory.

The virgin aching for the Christians by the pagans, like the wicked she suffered martyrdom, she acknowledged Christ openly and also didn't fear to stand up to Maxentius.
