When you’ve suffered injustice, turn to St. Barbara with this prayer

ST BARBARA,MARTYR

PD

Kathleen N. Hattrup - published on 12/04/18

Beseech your Divine Savior and mine to protect me from the dangers that press upon me.

St. Barbara was brutally murdered by her father because she wished to give her life to God. She is one of the 14 Holy Helpers, and a particularly powerful intercessor in situations of injustice.

Turn to her with this prayer:

O Saint Barbara, you who opened your mind to the light of faith through the work of reason, pray that my mind and heart might be ever open to Truth and may I embrace It with all the strength of my soul.Embracing this Truth as you did, obtain for me the grace to persevere in all trials. Beseech your Divine Savior and mine to protect me from the dangers that press upon me. Faithful Jesus, you who define yourself as Truth, cover me with your protection as you covered your beloved servant Barbara. Amen.
