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.
Sept. 17 -- Each Saturday morning, the weekly harvest from the St. Ann's Garden of Faith, the Piermont Community Garden, and home gardens of parishioners is distributed at the St. Ann's Food Pantry.
This summer we have been blessed with a very abundant harvest of leafy green vegetables, beans, tomatoes, peppers, corn, and herbs. Thanks to all who make this work of mercy happen.
