PRAYER TO
SAINT AGNES
 
O glorious St. Agnes,
you served God in humility and confidence on earth
and are now in the enjoyment of His beatific Vision in heaven
because you persevered till death
and gained the crown of eternal life.
Remember now the dangers
that surround me in the vale of tears,
and intercede for me in my needs and troubles.
 
(mention your intentions)
 
Amen.
 
 
 
PRAYER TO ST. AGNES
 
Let us gain courage
for our own battle
by honoring the martyrdom
of the glorious virgin Agnes,
  St. Agnes, vessel of honor,
flower of unfading fragrance,
beloved of the choirs of Angels,
you are an example to
the worth of virtue and chastity.
O you who wear a Martyr's
palm and a virgin's wreath,
pray for us that, though
unworthy of a special crown,
we may have our names
written in the list of Saints.
AMEN
