St. Barbara Novena

About Saint Barbara

St. Barbara was brought up a pagan. Her tyrannical father, Dioscorus, had kept her jealously secluded in a lonely tower which he had built for the purpose of keeping her confined. Here, in her forced solitude, she gave herself to prayer and study, and contrived to receive instruction and Baptism in secret from a Christian priest. While in the tower she convinced some workmen who were building two windows to add a third in honor of the Trinity.

Dioscorus, on discovering his daughter’s conversion, was beside himself with rage and denounced her before the civil tribunal. Barbara was horribly tortured for her faith and, at last, was beheaded — her own father, merciless to the very last, acting as her executioner. God, however, speedily punished her persecutors. While her soul was being carried by angels to Paradise, a flash of lightning struck Dioscorus and he was rushed before the judgement seat of God.
