St Agnes Clip-On Figure
The name Agnes comes from the words for Ã¯Â¿Â½pureÃ¯Â¿Â½ in Greek and Ã¯Â¿Â½lambÃ¯Â¿Â½ in Latin. St. Agnes lived around the year 300. The lovely 13-year-old daughter of Roman nobles had several suitors but, having consecrated herself to Christ, she refused to marry any of them. For this, the suitors attempted to force her into a life of impurity. Agnes resisted, strong in her Christian faith, and was eventually martyred for her beliefs. She is beloved as a saint of innocence and virtue.
