February 5 – Saint Agatha


Loving God, while Saint Agatha was being tortured for her faith, You interrupted her agonies with an earthquake.  She thanked You for bringing an end to her pain and passed immediately into Heaven as a blessed martyr.   I lift up to You my home and family, workplace and co-workers, church and community.  Through the intercession of Saint Agatha, protect us from earthquakes, fire, storms, and other natural disasters.  Teach us not to be so attached to our earthly possessions that we want Your protection for selfish reasons; rather, help us become more generous with the goods You have given us.  Saint Agatha, pray for us.  Amen.
