Feast of Santa Agrippina di Mineo

Evviva Santa Agrippina!

June 23rd is the Feast Day of Santa Agrippina di Mineo, virgin and martyr. To commemorate the occasion I'm posting a Prayer to Saint Agrippina. The accompanying photo was taken at the 2014 Feast of Santa Agrippina in Boston's North End. Boston is home to many descendants of Mineo, Sicily, and they venerate their patroness each August with a beautiful Feast in her honor.
Prayer to St. Agrippina
O glorious virgin and Martyr Agrippina your cruel executioner bound you to prepare you for martyrdom. Pray for us that our hearts will also be bound always to God's holy love, Let us pray fervently. May devotion to Saint Agrippina Endure for ever. Amen.
