One calls upon holy Barbe to be preserved of a sudden death and also to have the grace not to die without receiving the last sacraments. Holy Barbe is also called upon to be preserved the lightning. One can also request from holy Barbe the most various graces. Holy Barbe is one of holy most popular of French and her statue appears in many churches. Vigorously refusing to sacrifice to the false gods, she undergoes the most horrible torments and died, says one, decapitated by her father himself.
Ô Lord God, which elected holy Barbe for the consolation of alive and dying, make us the grace obtain, by our veneration and our confidence for this holy martyrdom, all the favors that she asked you for her trusty servants, before her glorious dead. We beg you by NR. – S. J. – C. Amen.
Holy Barbe, which are the hope of the patients and failing to obtain safety eternal to them, request for us.
Ô good Jésus That it was to be heavy for your shoulders, and more still for your heart, the weight of our crimes! Just as the grape under the press gives all its juice only when it’s crushed by the burden which weighs on him, thus your crowned body spread its invaluable blood, crushed under the press of the pain. Forgive us, Jesus. Amen.
