St. Agnes Comments

St. Agnes was a Roman girl who was only thirteen years old when she suffered martyrdom for her Faith. Agnes had made a promise, a promise to God never to stain her purity. Her love for the Lord was very great and she hated sin even more than death! Since she was very beautiful, many young men wished to marry Agnes, but she would always say, "Jesus Christ is my only Spouse." Procop, the Governor's son, became very angry when she refused him. ...

    This is my confirmation name. When my teacher told me St. Agnes was the Patron Saint of Girls, she was giving us sugestions, I imediatly liked it and added it to my list. My very long list. Agnes is also my Great-grandmother who died on my birthday's middle name which makes it even better. I was torn between two other names but this one called to me.

    I picked Saint Agnes to be my confirmation saint because of her strong love for God and Jesus. Even when she was tortured she stayed true to God.

    I am inspired by this beautiful saint who was a leader, stayed true to her faith, beliefs and customs and even sacrificed her own life for the Lord. She is my role model and I am taking her name for my confirmation.

    You don't have to be thirteen to following the example of St. Agnes. I am in my forties and saving myself for marriage to my fiancee, so just stand by your Catholic faith and you will find God will bless you for it in so many ways.

    I spent some time in her city, Catania, but at the time I wasn't leading a chaste life. Now I can look back and say that I was some how blessed by her because I converted a couple years after returning from Italy.

    One night I was looking up information about Catania, and came across photos of her Feast being celebrated in Catania, her name in Italian is Agata, and I read her story, and like each time I read it, I fell in love with this saint. The next morning I went to First Saturday Mass at the oldest and most beautiful church in Miami, Gesu. GUESS WHO"S FEAST DAY IT WAS! I love you SANT'AGATA!

    I read a story of a magazine published by Catholic organization. I was very young when I read it. It made an impact in my life. The title is "I cannot love you." The main characters are, Agnes and Marco. It was a nice and a very touching story. Marco and even his father were not bad Romans. They are just part of the pagan society at that time. Though Agnes was put to martyrdom in the story but it was not because of the father's manipulation. Marco and his father were both converted to Christianity at the end of the story because of Agnes undying faith and loyalty to God. I wonder if that story might be a revised version of St. Agnes life.

    Food for Thought Person----Check out the life of Saint Monica. Her life also makes your point very nicely. If she approached life like Saint Agnes did, we would have been deprived of Saint Augustine. Where there is faith there is life, Where there is life there is hope.

    We would all do well to also look at the life of Saint Rita. She was faced with a similar crisis but handeled it differently. She marred a most un-Christian man but managed to convert him by the time of his death. His soul was saved. She did the opposite of what Saint Agnes did but both are recognized as being saints.
