ST CORONA, MARTYR – MEMORIAL: MAY 14
St Corona, feast day May 14 (SS Victor and Corona) was a 16-year-old Christian who was martyred for her faith in Damascus in the second century. St Corona stood up publicly for Victor, a Roman soldier who was being tortured because he had converted to Christianity. For this act she died a horrific death. She was tied to two palm trunks that had been bent to the ground and when they whipped back up her body was torn to pieces. She is invoked by treasure hunters and people who play the lottery. Recently, her prayers to the Divine Physician are requested by those affected by Covid-19.
