St Agatha

5 February is the memorial of St Agatha, who was martyred at Catania in Sicily, probably during the persecution of Decius (250-253). Devotion to her was widespread in the Church in the earliest times and she is mentioned in the Roman Canon of the Mass. My sermon for today can be read here, and this mosaic of the saint is from the Lady Chapel of Westminster Cathedral.
