Hear a wonder, and a true miracle that happened this year, with a poor passenger.
From Villa Hermosa he left with a beast, on horseback; Six bandits put him in a saw to steal him.
They stabbed him ten times, and left him for dead; After eight days, two woodcutters saw the body lying, they complained in pain, with sad voices they asked for a confessor to be brought to them.
Stunned and stunned with such great wonder, they reported to Justice, and the whole town came.
A religious arrived, saying to him: what was he asking for? Confession: that I am living by this Divine Image.
As soon as he confessed, without saying another word, he went to report to the Accentor by miracle of this Saint.
In his chest they found him with a true faith this Divine Portrait of Barbara, beautiful and beautiful.
Barbara is the intercessor of the supreme Trinity, and through her she frees until the last hour.
Of lightning and lightning you are, Barbara, lawyer, because you save us from danger if you are really called.
We pray to JESUS, blessed fruit of Mary, save us from storms, for we adore Barbara.
