St. Agnes

St. Agnes in stained glass at Swanton Morley, Norfolk England. St. Agnes is my daughter's confirmation patron saint. I have entrusted my little one to her care and prayers and I'm counting on Agnes guiding her to Heaven. This is a beautiful depiction of her don't you think?

St. Agnes, ora pro filius meus. Amen+

Yes, beautiful.

I presume this is not St. Agnes of Assisi.

I feel like I am entering a very holy place whenever I visit your blog, and I always learn something new. God bless you.

Irene - this is St. Agnes of Rome, Virgin Martyr.

Vincenzo - A very kind thing to say, thank you and may God bless you.

Well Agnes' representations in art always offer us a beautiful depiction, since she is traditionally considered a young maiden.
