Meditate on a St. Agatha rosary during times of difficulty. St. Agatha is the patron saint of breast cancer and breast disease, bakers, nurses, bell founders, fire, earthquakes, and sterility. We recognize her devotion to our Lord as a virgin and martyr. She was tortured by the Romans as a result of her refusal to accept the advances of a Roman consul. She was not only imprisoned and commissioned to death but her breasts where cut off. Her bravery and faith never wavered.
