Saint Barbara, a 4th century Christian so angered her pagan father by her will to remain a virgin, that he forced her to live in a locked tower. The solitude gave her the ability to pray, study and convert to the faith. He then denounced St. Barbara to the civil authorities, where by she was horribly tortured and at last beheaded. Her father was the executioner. As he was traveling home, he was struck dead by lightning. When anger controls us, the consequences are grave.
