The feast days of Saints Agatha, Agnes, Cecilia, Philomena, Lucy, Anastasia, Dorothy, and Maria Goretti should be Catholic "International Daddies take their Daughters to Mass days".
One of the most powerful tactics in battling our culture of promiscuity and sexual license is a greater reverence for virginity. Fathers and mothers need to be strategic in how they instill this love for purity in their children.
Saint Agatha and these heroic young women demonstrate that virginity is more valuable than earthly life itself. It's difficult to communicate this to our sons and daughters, but the stories of the virgin martyrs bring it into full focus.
So take them to Holy Mass today to honor Saint Agatha and tell them her story.
