Saint Agnes, Roman Martyr

Saint Agnes Domenichino

Saint Agnes, by Domenichino (Domenico Zampieri) (1581–1641). From Wikipedia.

Almighty and everlasting God, who dost choose the weak things of the world to confound the strong: Mercifully grant that we who celebrate the simplicity of thy child–martyr Saint Agnes may, by thy grace, be pure in heart, firm in faith, and resolute in action, willing to offer ourselves a living sacrifice unto thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who as on this day didst cause thy blessed Virgin Agnes to attain unto the heavenly palm of martyrdom: Grant us, we beseech thee, so to follow her example that we may be accounted worthy to be admitted into thy presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
