Description

Saint Agnes

Feast day: January 21

The name Agnes comes from Greek and means “pure, innocent”.

Agnes was an extremely beautiful Roman woman. When the son of the Roman prefect wanted to take twelve-year-old Agnes as his wife, she refused him on the grounds that she was already engaged. She stated that her fiance is Jesus Christ. Neža was then brought before the court. During the rape attempt, the prefect’s son was visited by a demon, which led to his death. However, Agnes revived him to his life through her prayer. Despite this, she was branded a witch and later beheaded.

Saint Agnes is the patron saint of: chastity, virgins, betrothed; rape victim; girl scouts; a child; gardeners, animals (sheep) and shepherds.
