St. Agnes

St. Agnes was only 12 years old when the soldiers seized her. In those days they killed all Christians. One day they saw St. Agnes being good so they went to kill her. She was led to the pagan goddess Miriva in Rome. But instead she raised her hands and made the Sign of the Cross. They put handcuffs on her and they slipped right off her wrists. And then the soldiers dragged her on the roads on the streets and people laughed at her. After that she was offered a rich young man's hand in marriage, but she refused. She said, "I belong to my Savior alone." And then one strike of his sword killed that little girl. Agnes means Lamb. She was gentle and pure. Her feast is January 21.

St. Angela (friend of girls)

St. Angela knew many poor girls that were out on the streets and roads. They didn't know about God and Jesus and the Blessed Virgin and the saints, so she invited them over to her house and taught them about Jesus a lot. She did that almost every day and she taught them prayers. And then once then once those girls were older, they taught other people about Jesus.


St. Ann

St. Ann was the grandmother of Jesus. She and her husband were begging for a child, praying every day for a child. So one day, after St. Ann was too old, she was praying outside and this angel appeared to her and said, "You shall have a child that will be named Mary."

Then she told her to come back for a couple of months and she went back. So she kept on visiting her again and again, until she said, "I want you to dig a hole." And all this spring water came out. The Blessed Mother told her to wash herself and she did. Whoever bathed in there would get well. That now is at Lourdes and that's where people come and they get cured.

St. Christopher

When St. Christopher was living, it was dangerous days. He became a soldier but he did not have any belief. He was not a Christian. A saint came by and told him about Jesus Christ so he thought he'll believe in Jesus Christ so he did. One day he was going to journey to Bethlehem and he was going across the river on a stormy day and he saw a little boy. The child said, "Hold me and take me out far out in the sea." So he picked the boy up and carried him across the river because the river was getting stronger. He was a very strong man so he carried the boy across and the boy got heavier and heavier. And as he notices the boy getting heavier and heavier, the boy said, "I am the Lord." And then all of a sudden he realized that he was carrying Jesus. So he was very surprised! He died a martyr.

He always taught the people about Our Lord. They always came to listen to William when he preached. He never ate meat. He gave it to the poor. He never spent money on himself; he gave it away. Our Holy Father asked him to be an archbishop. William didn't want to accept it, but he listened to the Holy Father. Then one day he died and a whole crowd of people went following his dead body to the grave.


St. Zita

St. Zita was a young little girl. She worked for these people and they said to her, "Don't work so hard, because you're showing off our laziness." And then one day they fell asleep so she thought that she'll make bread. So she made bread. But really most of all she loved to talk to God. So she was talking to God, praying for like a couple hours. Then all of a sudden she forgot about the bread and she cried. But then these angels came down and took the bread out of the oven. She made the best bread in the world; it was sweet.
