Had it not been a Sunday, we would have celebrated the Memoria of St Agnes, Virgin and Martyr. There are phrases of her ‘Acts’ that are picked up in the Responsory that we sing for Monastic Saints and Religious: ‘Earthly kingdoms and all the glory of the world I spurned, for the love of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, Whom I have seen, Whom I have loved, in Whom I have believed, Whom I have desired’.

On this Sunday, let us renew our total dedication to Our Lord, giving Him our all. May you be greatly blessed in so doing.
