HISTORY

Sant’Agrippina di Mineo was a beautiful blonde princess who was unmercifully tortured to death by the emporor Valerian in 256 a.d. After her death, her body was taken from Rome to Mineo by three holy women: Bassa, Paula, and Agotonica. Sant’Agrippina is the patron saint of thunderstorms, leprosy and evil spirits. The story of the journey of the martyred body of St. Agrippina from Rome to Mineo was full of miraculous events. The fragrance that accompanied the body of St. Agrippina wherever it went, the veneration of the sailors and the farmers, the light weight of the reliquary so that the three women could carry it, the quickness of the voyage from Rome to Sicily, the miraculous cloud that covered the girls and transported them and the relics at certain times of danger in the journey, the angels that protected them from harm, the devils that were defeated and swept out at the sight of the sacred relics and the miracle of Teogonia, are all signs that it was the will of God that Agrippina should be the Saint of this blessed city. The relics of St. Agrippina arrived in Mineo on Wednesday, May 17th, 261.
