St. Agnes, Virgin and Martyr

 

St. Agnes, Virgin, Martyr

from St. Ann Catholic Church in West Palm Beach, Florida

 

Prayer to St. Agnes of Rome:

Let us gain courage for our own battle

by honoring the martyrdom of the glorious virgin Agnes.

St. Agnes, vessel of honor,

flower of unfading fragrance,

beloved of the choirs of Angels,

you are an example to the worth of virtue and chastity.

O you who wear a Martyr’s palm and a virgin’s wreath,

pray for us that, though unworthy of a special crown,

we may have our names written in the list of Saints.  Alleluia.
