Let us gain courage for our own battle by honoring the martyrdom of the glorious virgin Agnes.

St. Agnes, vessel of honor,
flower of unfading fragrance,
beloved of the choirs of Angels,
you are an example to the worth of virtue and chastity.

O you who wear a Martyr's palm and a virgin's wreath,
pray for us that, though unworthy of a special crown,
we may have our names written in the list of Saints.
