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. St. Agatha is the Patron Saint of Catania. She had protected the city 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 placed in prison and the Cathedral which holds her reliquary and her miraculous veil that stopped the volcanic lava from destroying Catania. Scenes of the volcanos at Mt. Etna and the annual festival of Sant' Agata held in Catania.
