–St. Agnes of Rome
St. Agnes of Rome lived during the third century in Rome. She is one of the martyrs listed in the Canon of the Mass. Agnes was just a young girl when she decided to dedicate her life to Christ, and wanted to remain unmarried. One suitor refused to respect her wishes, and feeling slighted, reported her to the authorities for being a Christian. Agnes faced her abusers and persecutors with courage, and refused to renounce her faith.
