St. Agnes, one of the earliest Roman martyrs, was put to death at a very young age (12 or 13) around 305 AD.
She is usually portrayed holding a lamb, which signifies her innocence. Also, her name sounds like the Latin word for lamb, "agnus." The palm branch in her hand is a symbol of her victory as a virgin martyr, remaining faithful to Christ unto death.
Each year on St. Agnes' feast day, Jan. 21, the Pope blesses two lambs. Their shorn wool is used to make the white woolen stole called a pallium, which is worn by archbishops.
Here's a video of Pope Benedict XVI blessing two adorable little lambs, who wear flower wreaths in honor of St. Agnes. Listen carefully and you'll hear one greet the Pope with a bleat the moment he steps into the room.
Nov. 17, 2016 -- Two days before the annual Thanksgiving distribution of food for the needy at St. Paul's on Saturday, Nov. 19, Don Paoli, Kim Cardazzi and their crew of adults and students were busy preparing the bags of foodstuffs for the over 500 people who were anticipated.
In a room in the building behind the main school, St. Paul's Food Cupboard volunteers had organized an efficient assembly line, along which each student moved a shopping bag down the length of a 20-foot line of tables, collecting canned vegetables, stuffing mix, applesauce, and other fixings for a full, traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
The students, from Nyack and Clarkstown schools, were earning community service hours, but their laughter and comaraderie showed that they were enjoying their opportunity to do some very important work for others. There was no fooling around -- and soon the loaded bags of food were filling the floor space along the far wall.
Still to come later were the turkeys, provided by the Hudson Valley Food Bank, the Pearl River Elks, and through a grant from the Cornell Co-operative Extension. Besides their Saturday food distributions, the St. Paul's Food Pantry prepares special holiday bags for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. About 500 bags are prepared -- and a couple extra, so no one will go away empty-handed. For more photos, click here. Click on a photo to enlarge it, and then scroll through the resulting slide show.
