St. Agatha Comments

Although we have evidence that Agatha was venerated at least as far back as the sixth century, the only facts we have about her are that she was born in Sicily and died there a martyr. In the legend of her life, we are told that she belonged to a rich, important family. When she was young, she dedicated her life to God and resisted any men who wanted to marry her or have sex with her. One of these men, Quintian, was of a high enough rank ... Continue Reading

    Dear St. Agatha, whose love for Jesus was so focused, so great and so all encompassing nothing could divert you from Jesus. Pray for us, poor sinners, that Jesus be the reason for everything we think, say, and do.Help us dear, sweet saint so suffered much physical and mental torture, may we not magnify our little troubles. Teach us to pray always. Amen

    O Heavenly Father, Who raised Agatha to the dignity of Sainthood, we implore Your Divine Majesty by her intercession to give us health of mind, body and soul. Free us from all those things which hold us bound to this earth, and let our spirit, like hers, rise to your heavenly courts. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You, forever. Amen.

    My wife was 34, in 2006, when diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer... She was a non catholic at the time... We prayed to my saints, Padre Pio and Blessed John Paul II... She was given the prognosis of being cancer free in July 2010, in April 2011 she came into our Catholic Family via RCiA and the Vigil mass.... Her confirmation name and patron saint is St Agatha.... I need HELP! I'm looking for devotional candles for St Agatha... We have my Padre Pio, JPII, Fatima, and other Catholic candles at home... I haven't been able to find one specially for my wife and it would mean so much to us.... Does any one here have any suggestions to vendors? Thanks and God Bless You All..

    About two to three years ago, i finally learnt that saint agatha is my guardian angel, and at this very moment, i finally learnt some facts about St.Agatha which i am so humble and proud that St.Agatha is my saint.

    Dear St.Agatha,
    In Jesus name and Our Blessed Virgin Mother Mary i humbly pray for all my sins that i have committed in the past and present, also i pray to the Lord that He may guide me throughout the rest of my life-journey, particularly in complex situations and decisions i have to make. Not forgetting i pray for all my brothers and sisters whom are very unfortunate as they slowly die from hunger and poverty, also i pray for our abandon elderly. Lastly, i pray for all sinners across our earthly planet, especially for those whom have lost faith or have not yet encounter our only almighty God. Amen.

    this info was most informative, I will give a brief speech on St. Agatha, at our daughters of the Holy Cross meeting. I am Anglican, but we share sisterhood in the Catholic Church.

    Thank you
