St. Agnes of Montepulciano

When she was only nine years old, Agnes asked her parents to let her enter the convent at Montepulciano. They hesitated, but knowing that Agnes was a mature and devout child, they agreed to let her enter. When she was fourteen the sisters put her in charge of procuring all the food, clothing, and other needs of the community. The next year the pope himself asked her to become superior of a new community and teach its sisters.
