St Agnes and the Lamb Panel #12584
This stained glass window features Saint Agnes holding a lamb, her namesake. Saint Agnes' feast day is January 21st. She is the patron saint of the Children of Mary. Born in Rome, Saint Agnes was only thirteen years old when she was martyred for her faith. Agnes is depicted in artwork with a lamb, since the Latin word for lamb is “agnus”, which sounds like her name. The name Agnes is derived from the feminine Greek adjective meaning “chaste, pure or sacred”. In the window, Agnes is depicted holding a lamb before a field featuring a red pattern.
