St. Agnes was a Roman girl who was only thirteen years old when she suffered martyrdom for her Faith. Agnes had made a promise, a promise to God never to stain her purity. Her… love for the Lord was very great and she hated sin even more than death! Since she was very beautiful, many young men wished to marry Agnes, but she would always say, " Jesus Christ is my only Spouse.". Procop, the Governor's son, became very angry when she refused him. He had tried to win her for his wife with rich gifts and promises, but the beautiful young girl kept saying, "I am already promised to the Lord of the Universe. He is more splendid than the sun and the stars, and He has said He will never leave me!" In great anger, Procop accused her of being a Christian and brought her to his father, the Governor. The Governor promised Agnes wonderful gifts if she would only deny God, but Agnes refused. He tried to change her mind by putting her in chains, but her lovely face shone with joy. Next he sent her to a place of sin, but an Angel protected her. At last, she was condemned to death. Even the pagans cried to see such a young and beautiful girl going to death. Yet, Agnes was as happy as a bride on her wedding day. She did not pay attention to those who begged her to save herself. "I would offend my Spouse," she said, "if I were to try to please you. He chose me first and He shall have me!" Then she prayed and bowed her head for the death-stroke of the sword.. Answer . she was a beautiful 13 yr old Roman girl, (who believed in the teachings of Christ) and was sought in marriage by young men of great Roman families. She refused them all and was accused of being a christian by one of them as a result. Like other Christians of Rome , she was ordered to make a sacrifice to the Roman Gods or be condemned to death. Her calmness and courage in the face of death, her virginity and her martyrdom are the reasons she became a saint.. Agnes was killed with a sword. She refused to marry the governor's son, Procop. She wanted Jesus as her spouse. She was asked to deny Jesus and marry. When she refused, she was martyred.

St. Agnes was not canonized. She was proclaimed a saint by early Christians because of his martyrdom. The canonization process did not come into existence until the 12th c…entury. In the primitive Church, martyrs were immediately recognized as witnessing to the perfection of Christian life on earth, having shown the ultimate proof of their love for Christ by the offering of their lives. By the sacrifice of their lives for Christ, they attained Heaven in eternal glory and were indissolubly united to the Lord, the Head of the Mystical Body. .
St. Agnes is the patron saint of girls.She is also the saint of chastity.
St. Agnes is from the story St. Agnes in Agony about a girl wholived in Rome, I had originally heard that she had refused torenounce her Christianity and was sentenced to a li…fe of sexuallabor. The Story is supposed to actually go like this... St. Agnes in Agony was a gorgeous 13 year old virgin. A king had ason that he wanted to marry her. She refused to marry him, becauseshe had made a promise to God not to have sex with anyone. When sherefused the King's proposal of marriage to his son he said to killher. When they said "Sir we cannot possibly kill a virgin!" Theking ordered her out to be tied to a post and burned to death. Butthey tried and tried again to lite her and nothing they could dowould start a fire to burn her, so they drew a sword and eitherslit her throat or chopped her head off. Don't know for sure which, but either way she still unfortunatelydied, but honorably because i believe a promise to God is somethingno matter what the circumstances you don't break, and she provedjust how important not breaking a promise to God is. I still don'tknow which story is true, but that's the fun part, because you caneither research your heart out or choose which story to believe!Your Choice!
