St. Agnes

Picture source

O invincible Martyr, Saint Agnes most renowned, by thy confidence in God's help,
when, being condemned by the impious Roman prefect to see the lily of thy purity
stained and trampled in the mire, thou didst not despair, still trusting firmly in the God who giveth His angels charge over them that trust in Him: we beseech thee by thine intercession to obtain for us from Almighty God the forgiveness of all our sins and the sure confidence that He will bestow upon us life everlasting and the means necessary to merit it.
