January 21 – Saint Agnes of Rome


Christ Jesus, Saint Agnes of Rome was only a teenager when she had to decide between life and dying for You.  She had been ordered to sacrifice her virginity to pagan gods, and she sacrificed her life instead.  Since she is the patron saint of engaged couples, I ask her to intercede for all the folks I know who are dating, planning to get married, divorced and lonely, cohabitating, married without the Sacrament, and everyone else who is facing the temptation of sexual relations outside of marriage.  Help them to grow in their intimacy with You, and teach them to rely on You to remain pure and chaste.  Saint Agnes, pray for us.  Amen.
