St. Agnes - Young Girls & Purity
Saint Agnes - Patroness of Girls, Chastity, Purity and Betrothed Couples.
Agnes was a beautiful young girl who had dedicated herself to God. Many men wanted her as their wife but she refused. She even refused the governor's son.
He was enraged and wanted her beheaded. Law did not allow the beheading of a virgin. Many more horrible things were done to her to kill her or change her mind, but she was miraculously protected from much of the harm perpetrated on her. Through all of it she never lost sight of her devotion to God.
"May all young girls innocents be protected, never betrayed. May they be kept them safe from all harm."
