The Dome in St Barbara’s Chapel in St Stephen’s Cathedral, ViennaSt Barbara is a warrior saint, who was beheaded by a sword to preserve her virginity. Like St. Michael, she protects policemen and firefighters, and soldiers, with a special love for heavy artillery. She withstood every kind of torture and isolation for her faith… and in the end, her torturers were killed by strikes of lightening.
You need an arc light prayer, she’s the woman to call. And they say that Christianity is unfriendly to strong women! Her feast day is December 4th.
St Stephen is the first Christian martyr, who was stoned to death for speaking the gospel in public. He was a deacon, who took care of widows and the poor. He also spoke very well, and brought many to the faith. His Feast Day is December 26.
