St. Agatha Medals, Medallions and Jewelry
Saint Agatha was a beautiful young woman born into a noble, wealthy family. From an early age, Agatha was dedicated to Christ and would not marry or have sex with any men. However, the magistrate, Quintian, believing himself to be worthy, pursued Saint Agatha, a virgin. She refused all of his advances. He then had her persecuted for her Christian beliefs and tortured her and cut off her breasts. It is believed that St. Peter appeared to her and healed her wounds. Imprisoned further, then rolled on live coals, she was near death when an earthquake struck. In the destruction, the frightened magistrate fled. Brave, Saint Agatha thanked God for an end to her pain, and died. Her faith never wavered.
