Saint Barbara is the patron saint of artillerymen, military engineers,
miners and others who work with explosives because o
f her old legend's
association with lightning.
She is invoked against thunder and lightning and all accidents arising
from explosions of gunpowder.
She is the patron of the Italian Navy and is also recognized as the
patron saint of U.S. Navy.
