January 21 - Saint Agnes

She was a Roman child of about 12 years of age who suffered martyrdom in the 4th century. Not much is known about her, but legend has it that she wanted to give herself to Christ in body and soul and, when she rejected the advances of a rich Roman, she was taken to the governor, who offered her gifts and riches if she renounced her faith. Agnes was steadfast in her conviction and was tortured and killed.

Do you think you are too young to receive a call to give everything to God?
