St. Agatha Jewelry and Collectables
Agatha (231-251) was a consecrated virgin woman, living circa 250 A. D. She rejected advances from a Roman senator who then accused her of being a Christian. The senator ordered her tortured, raped, and breasts cut off as punishment. As she stayed in her prison cell, she had visions of Saint Peter who healed her with a “celestial ointment”.
