Saint Barbara was the beautiful daughter of a pagan merchant. He kept her locked in a tower, which gave Barbara plenty of time to pray. When her father ordered a bath house built for Barbara, she asked the builders to add a third window in honor of the Trinity. When Barbara's father found out that she was a Christian, he was furious and tried to get her to renounce her faith. She bravely refused and was martyred on December 4th.
