Invoke St. Barbara for True Sacraments Before Death

"...all who shall invoke Thee in memory of my sufferings and death... 

at the end of their life, may receive the last sacraments ... ."  

 

 

St. Barbara is considered the patroness of a happy death,
because she has obtained for many of her clients the grace
to receive the last sacraments, when in danger of dying
without them. This favor the Virgin Martyr asked as her
pagan father was about to deal her death-blow. "Lord
Jesus," she prayed, who art infinitely good and the sure
foundation of hope and salvation for those who believe in
Thee, grant, I beg Thee, that all who shall invoke Thee in
memory of my sufferings and death, may feel the effects of
Thy mercy and above all, at the end of their life, may
receive the last sacraments with a truly humble and contrite
heart and be delivered from the snares of the devil."
