journey to find the third window and

the cross on the wall, he furiously con-

fronted his daughter, who told him that

she had, indeed, become a Christian.


Dioscorus, in great anger, brought St.

Barbara to Marcian, the Roman prefect,

who had her tortured and imprisoned.

To this day, Santa Barbara is beseech-

Her intercession is invoked against sud-

den and violent death. She is the Patron

Saint of artillerymen and all those who

work with ordinance, explosive muni-

tions, cannons, and things that go boom.
