Saint Barbara lived during the times of Emperor Maximianus, and she was the daughter of the rich idolater Dioscoros. From an early age she became a Christian and so she encountered great aggressiveness from her father, who was responsible for her decapitation. Saint Barbara is considered a patron saint as child protector. Saint Barbara celebrates on December 4th.
