St. Agatha

 The Martyrdom of Saint Agatha

St. Agatha was born to a rich, influential family in Sicily sometime during the third century. The exact date is unknown. She dedicated herself totally to God and refused the advances of many men who wished to marry her.

One of the men who she refused was named Quintian. Insulted by her refusal, he had her arrested for practicing Christianity and assumed she would give in to his advances in fear of torture. Saint Agatha persisted in refusing him. She prayed for the help of Jesus Christ to give her strength, “Jesus Christ, Lord of all, you see my heart, you know my desires. Possess all that I am. I am your sheep: make me worthy to overcome the devil.”

Enraged, Quintian put Saint Agatha into a brothel. After a month of humiliation Saint Agatha was brought before Quintian again. She remained steadfast in her resolve and rejected him once again. He imprisoned her as she proclaimed that Jesus gave her freedom.

Saint Agatha’s Final Words

Quintian tortured her relentlessly with flogging, burning, and cutting off her breasts. He refused her any medical help. Jesus provided the help she needed through the intercession of St. Peter. She is depicted in many paintings carrying her breasts on a plate. Saint Agatha died after a particulary brutal torture which involved rolling her naked body over hot coals mixed with broken shards of pottery. Her final words were, "Lord, my Creator, you have always protected me from the cradle; you have taken me from the love of the world and given me patience to suffer. Receive my soul."

 Saint Agatha – Patron Saint of Breast Cancer

Saint Agatha is the Patron Saint of Breast Cancer and sexual assault because of the torture she suffered under Quintian. Many Christians who are afflicted with breast cancer wear a Saint Agatha necklace asking for her intercession to help them through their ordeal of surgery and therapy. Consider giving a loved one suffering from breast cancer a Saint Agatha medallion to strengthen them and let them know they are not alone.
