Prayer to Saint Barbara
you are stronger than the tower of a fortress
and the fury of hurricanes.
Do not let lightning hit me, thunder frighten me
or the roar of canons jolt my courage or bravery.

all the storms and battles of my life
with my head held high and a serene…Continue

"Let us today entreat the most Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph, not only for ourselves, but also for our families, for all those who surround us.
