St. Agnes of Rome
At the young age of 13, Agnes rejected advances from Roman suitors. One such suitor was the governor’s son, who jealously offered estates and money for his marriage. She refused, and the governor ordered her to undress and be led through the streets. Her hair suddenly grew and covered her body while an angel appeared and clothed her. She was thrown into a brothel, but was miraculously able to preserve her purity and was ultimately martyred as a result.
