A second commemoration of Saint Agnes occurs on this day in the ancient Sacramentaries of Pope Gelasius and Saint Gregory the Great; as also in the true Martyrology of Bede. It was perhaps, the day of her burial, or of a translation of her relics, or of some remarkable favour obtained through her intercession soon after her death.
