I had a scare last month when I felt something that did not feel quite right. Was not sure if it was a bone, a ligament, a cyst or heaven forbid something far worse, and me with no health insurance either ! I was able to access an exam for free at my psy clinic where I go for weekly counseling as it is State run. I investigated which saint was the patron of breast cancer and found out about St Agatha. I had a pink chaplet made by someone on Etsy and now say it daily. Passing it along.
Oh St. Agatha, who withstood the unwelcome advances from unwanted suitors,
and suffered pain and torture for her devotion to Our Lord, we celebrate your
faith, dignity and martyrdom.
Protect us against rape and other violations, guard us against breast cancer and other
afflictions of women, and inspire us to overcome adversity.
Oh St. Agatha, virgin and martyr, mercifully grant that we who venerate your sacrifice,
may receive your intercession. Amen.
'Animals have done us no harm and they have no power of resistance. There is something so dreadful in tormenting those who have never harmed us, who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power' .........Cardinal John Henry Newman.
