Feast Day - January 21
O glorious St. Agnes, look down from heaven to this earth of ours where you once found the lily of innocence and preserved its purity.
Obtain for us the grace, O most pure virgin, to love Jesus with all the love of which we are capable. May His love be the strength of our faith, the happiness of our hope, the very word upon our lips, the guiding force of our wills, the courage of our sacrifices, the haven of our hearts, the answer in all of our difficulties, the mainspring of our actions, the victory in our struggles, the only Life of our lives, and the tranquility of our death.
Following your example, O happy virgin, may we die repeating these words: “I love Christ!” Amen.
