Saint Barbara was such a beautiful young woman and, amazingly, this made her father, Dioscorus, jealous! He locked Barbara in a high tower to guard her from the outside world but Barbara still converted to Christianity. When Dioscorus discovered his daughter had become a Christian, he had her beaten and tortured in an attempt to get her to renounce faith. Eventually, Barbara was beheaded. Her father was struck by lightning shortly after her execution. She is recognized as a paragon of faith and devotion, and protects from lightning, fire, and explosions!
