Verse on the back:
St Agatha
PATRON OF BREAST CANCER PATIENTS (SIXTH CENTURY)
Born in Sicily to a wealthy and important family, Agatha
lived a life devoted to God. She was quite beautiful and
many men sought  her hand in marriage. Agatha refused
their attention. Aware of her faith in a time of religious persecution,
one suitor, who was also a judge, had Agatha brought before him and
charged as a Christian. He offered to drop the charges if Agatha
would deny her beliefs and give herself to him. When she did not
yueld to his will, Agatha was condemned to live in a brothel. There,
she refused customers and rejected any advanced toward her. When
the judge saw that the brothel had failed to weaken Agatha's resolve,
he ordered that she be tortured and sent to prison. Having her breasts
cut from her chest was one of the many atrocities suffered by Agatha
at the hands of her oppressors. They denied her any medical care, but
God provided all the care she needed in the form of a vision for St.
Peter. Through these trials, Agatha consistently stood by her faith.
When she was near death, an earthquake struck and suddenly
brought her torture to an immediate halt. At this, Agatha thanked
God for an end to her pain, and with that final prayer, she died. St,
Agatha's name is included in the Canon of the Mass. She is a patron
of breast cancer patients, those suffering from breast disease, and
victims of torture.
