Agnes of Rome, Martyr. Feast Day 21st January.
A Roman who lived circa. 305, she was twelve or
thirteen when she was martyred for refusing to marry a pagan. From the
earliest centuries she was held in high honour by the Church for her
heroism in defence of her faith. Often portrayed, as she is here, holding a lamb as a
symbol for purity. It is also a play on her name as the Latin for lamb is
On her feast day in Rome two lambs are blest and their wool is used
to make the palliums, a circular band approx. 2 " wide worn around the
neck, given by the Pope to archbishops as a sign of their authority (from the Latin palla meaning cloak or mantle).
Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey.
