Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Agatha laetissime et glorianter ibat ad carcerem,
et quasi ad epulas invitata
agonem suum Domino praecibus commendabat.

English.png English translation

Agatha most joyfully and gloriously went to a dungeon,
and, as if she were invited to a sumptuous feast,
she commended her suffering to the Lord with prayers.

Translation by Paul Pascal
