and starting to doubt

or smoking you out"

Saint Agatha - Patron Saint of Catania, Sicily
Agatha was tortured after rejecting the unwanted proposals of a Roman prefect, leading to her breasts being cut off with pincers. As if that wasn’t already beyond the pale, she was later martyred when she was cooked on coals to her death. Eventually she became considered a Saint. To this day in Sicily on February 4-6, during the festival of Saint Agatha, little cakes resembling her severed breasts (called minni di virgini or Cassatelle di Sant’Agata, consisting of shortbread in the shape of a breast, filled w/custard, chopped almonds or pistachios, covered in pink icing & topped with a cherry, or filled w/ricotta, covered in white icing & topped with a chocolate chip) are served to mark the occasion.
