St. Agnes was born in 291 A.D. in Rome, Italy. She was very beautiful and kind. Agnes loved Jesus and gave herself to Him. Because of this, she refused to marry. Many men wanted to marry her but after refusing them they accused her of being a Christian. At that time it was illegal to be Christian. After being arrested she was treated very badly but still remained faithful to Jesus and kind to her captors. She was later beheaded and died joyfully as a courageous martyr at the age of 13.
