February 18: Feast of St. Agatha Lin, Chinese Martyr

St. Agatha was beheaded as one of many Chinese martyrs in Mao-kin.  She was born into a devout Catholic family and was well aware of the Chinese persecutions of Christians, because her father was tortured and arrested more than once for his Christian faith.  She became a Christian teacher and catechist as an adult and spent some time in prison for her refusal to denounce her faith.  While there, she was also mocked for her virginity.  Her feast day is February 18.
