January 21 - Saint Agnes

According to the acts of the martyrs, Agnes was only 12-years-old when she was martyred. It seems she was very pretty and many young men wanted to marry her. But Agnes claimed she had committed her life to Christ. She was tortured and killed and is venerated in Rome in a church built on the catacomb where her body is believed to be buried.
