"O Jesus Christ" she cried as she set off on the journey to the prison, " All that I am is Thine; preserve me from this tyrant".
And Our Lord did preserve her. Even though Agatha was in the care of an evil person, she stayed pure and good while in prison. God gave her strength to stay firm and not fall into temptation when Quintanus offered her safety in exchange for sin.
Quintanus lost patience and sent Agatha to the torturers, but she never lost her faith in God. After being cut up and rolled over broken pottery, Agatha prayed for God to take her to Heaven, which He did.
St. Agatha is an incorruptible.
She is the patron saint of nurses and breast cancer patients.

Outside my window... It's a bright clear day.
I'm thinking... about how nice it will be to have all the boys and everybody here in just a couple weeks.
From the kitchen... the dishwasher is running.
I am creating... music!!!
I am reading... the 6th Trixie Belden: A Mystery in Arizona.
I am hoping... that Kevin comes down with the rest of the boys.
I am hearing... the dishwasher running.
Around the house... Michelle, Cathy, and Anna are figuring out a new device for making the rope swing more fun.
Few more plans for the rest of the week... none that I know of.
