Saint Agatha of Sicily (d. 251) is a Christian saint. Her memorial is on 5 February. Agatha was born at Catania
she was martyred in approximately AD 250. She is the patron saint of Catania. She is one of seven women,
the Blessed Virgin Mary, commemorated by name in the Canon of the Mass.
According to variations of her legend, having rejected the amorous advances of a Roman prefect, she was
him for her Christian faith. Among the tortures she underwent was the cutting off of her breasts. She is
often depicted iconographically carrying her excised breasts on a platter.
The shape of her amputated breasts, especially as depicted in artistic renderings, gave rise to her attribution
the patron saint of bell-founders and as the patron saint of bakers. More recently, she has been venerated as
saint of breast cancer patients.
Her scorned admirer eventually sentenced her to death by being burnt at the stake. However, she was saved from
fate by a mysterious earthquake. She later died in prison.
She is considered as patron saint of Malta since her intercession is reported to have saved Malta from Turkish
invasion in 1551. She is also patron saint of Breast Cancer, Breast Disorders, and Rape Victims.
The memory of Agatha is upheld in particular by the Military Order of the Collar of Saint Agatha of Patern.
