St. Agatha

St. Agatha is the patron saint of Catania.
The city organises festivities in her name that last three days between the 3rd and 5th of February.
St. Agatha was a martyr; she had herself killed to avoid renouncing her faith in God.
The young girl was captured and tortured before she died. She was beaten and burned and her breasts were removed. Agatha showed no fear before her persecutor, but was always proud, knowing that the Holy Spirit would be there to help her.
