Saint Barbara the Great Martyr

Saint Barbara lived during the time of the emperor Maximian (286 - 305 AD), in the city of Nicomedia in Asia Minor and was the daughter of the pagan Dioscorus. Her father, a fanatical nationalist, had her locked up in a tower, due to her extraordinary of her beauty in order to protect her from suitors. However, he secretly converted to Christianity. In fact, he had ordered a bath to be built for her, so that she would not have to use the public baths, and while the plan for the bath initially provided for two windows, Barbara installed another one to honor the Holy Trinity, confiding the word to her father .Then her father, seeing this change, took pity and ordered her to be delivered to the Roman Prefect. The Prefect, admiring her beauty, tried at first to convince her, but seeing that she was adamant, he subjected her to torture, more to save her from the wrath of her father who wanted her killed. Finally the Prefect ordered her beheading, and set the sentence to be carried out by her father himself, which was also his wish. But at the moment when he had completed his crime, he fell dead struck by lightning by divine judgment.
