Saint Agnes

Saint Joseph Shrine, in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - statue of Saint Agnes

For the feat of Saint Agnes, here is a photo I took at the Shrine of Saint Joseph, in Saint Louis, in January 2008. Saint Agnes was an early martyr, greatly venerated by the primitive Church. She is shown carrying lambs, which is a symbol of virginity. The pallium of Archbishops are made from the wool of two lambs which are blessed on this day.
