Saint Agatha was born into an important Sicilian family and from an early age dedicated herself to Christ as a virgin. Legend has it that one suitor, Quintian, after being rejected, had Agatha imprisoned in a brothel for one month to change her mind. After suffering abuse and humiliation but never wavering, Quintian then sent her to prison where she suffered the torture of having her breasts cut off. Then an earthquake struck, killing Quintian and Agatha died peacefully. She has been invoked during Mt. Etna’s eruptions.
