Saint Philomena is a saint venerated for her faith and martyrdom. Its history remains shrouded in mystery and legend. She is said to have been a 13-year-old girl from Greece who was martyred in the 4th century. Despite the torture, she refused to renounce her Christian faith. She is often represented with a fleur-de-lis, a symbol of purity, and an anchor, a symbol of hope. She is considered the patroness of desperate causes and is invoked to obtain miracles. Her devotion has spread throughout the world and she is commemorated on August 11.

Saint Barbara, a 3rd century Christian martyr, embodies faith and resilience. Her cult has spread across many cultures, notably among miners and firefighters, who consider her their patron saint. Legend has it that she was imprisoned by her father in a tower, a symbol of her determination to follow her faith. The fires of Saint Barbara, traditionally lit on December 4, symbolize protection against dangers, particularly fires, hence the custom of honoring them in fire stations. Saint Barbara is revered for her spiritual strength and courage in the face of adversity, and remains an iconic figure of protection and Christian devotion.
