Ask for the intercession of Santa Águeda against breast cancer
O glorious virgin and martyr, Saint Águeda,
that in order not to betray the faith in Jesus Christ, you
preferred to have your breasts torn from martyrdom
and miraculously cured in prison,
look for your daughters who,
full of confidence, are addressed to you.
You who have preserved integrity before God
free us from the temptation to exchange our faith
for transient values that keep us from God.
Young man that you were, free our young people from drugs,
and all kinds of exploitation.
And how did you say to your torturer,
“Do not you be ashamed to maim at the woman
what your mother gave you to take away her food?” Get
rid of all the ills of the breast so that
each day, living as true Christians,
we can say with you:
“I have in my soul the whole breasts,
with which I nourish all my senses
that from the infancy I consecrated Christ Jesus.”
Pray a Our Father, a Hail Mary and a Glory to the Father
