When to celebrate the Day of the angel Barbara?

on December 17.

Who was Saint Barbara?

According to legend,

Saint Barbara of Iliopolis

was born in Phenicia in the family of the influential pagan Dioscorus.

Varvara was noted for her beauty, and her father decided to lock her in a tower to hide her from prying eyes.

During the period of imprisonment, the girl looked out the window, studied the world that was opening up, and indulged in meditation.

As a result, Varvara independently came to the conclusion that everything that exists could have been created by only one Creator.

Finally, Dioscorus decided to release his daughter from the tower to prepare her for marriage.

Varvara, taking advantage of her freedom, immediately accepted baptism from local Christians.

After learning about this, the pagan father became angry and ordered the girl to be tortured: she was scourged with ox veins and the owner's wounds were rubbed.

To top it all off, the ruler of the city gave Dioscorus the right to judge Barbara, and the father beheaded his daughter with his own hands.

Congratulations on Varvara's birthday in verse and prose

On St. Barbara's Day, I will light a candle

and whisper the words of a simple prayer.

I am not asking for fame, power and wealth, I am asking

children and parents for health and happiness.

I ask for mercy and protection for them,

Save the holidays, loved ones and relatives.

On the day of St. Barbara, I turn to heaven,

Hear and help, patron saint.
