Three 20-something women trying to figure out what it means to be lay, Catholic, and modern all at once.

An Antidote

In light of the two last posts, I thought we might want to seek heavenly aid. Here is a saint whose feast day we are celebrating January 21. St. Agnes is the patron saint of chastity, virgins, and betrothed couples. How we need her prayers during this time!! St. Agnes, help to purify our hearts as we seek our vocations in the Church. Be our protection as we live our vocations in the world.

Thanks so much for this, Edith. A sister at my school told the girls about her at our weekly rosary. She said that St. Agnes would inspire them to be women of great courage, especially during this time of year. I don't know much about her, but I'm very much looking forward to chatting with her!
