Saint Agatha is the Patron Saint of Catania
Martyr of the Early Church
Journey with Bob and Penny Lord as they go to Sicily and explore the life story of this early Church Martyr. She had protected Catania from earthquakes and especially volcanos since the 4th century.
Visit the Churches in her honor, the Church of alla Fornace where she was burned, the Church of al Carcere, where she was place in prison and the Cathedral which holds her reliquary and her miraculous veil that stoped the volcanic lava from destroying Catania.
We discuss the annual festival of Sant' Agata held in Catania.
