Boom.  The legend of Barbara tells us that her father tortured and killed
her for converting to christianity and he was immediately thereafter killed
by a bolt of lightning or fire from heaven.  So, she is patron of all death
that falls from the sky.

Incidentally, she's also the patron (for varous reasons connected to her
story) against death by artillery, against explosions, against fire, against
impenitence, against lightning, against mine collapse, against storms,
ammunition magazines, ammunition workers, architects, armourers, artillery,
artillerymen, boatmen, bomb technicians, brass workers, brewers, builders,
carpenters, construction workers, dying people, explosives workers, fire,
fire prevention, firefighters, fireworks, fireworks manufacturers,
fortifications, founders, geologists, gravediggers, gunners, hatmakers,
hatters, lightning, mariners, martyrs, masons, mathematicians, military
engineers, milliners, miners, ordnance workers, prisoners, safety from
storms, sailors, saltpetre workers, smelters, stone masons, stonecutters,
storms, sudden death, the country of Syria, tilers, warehouses, and

She's the perfect saint for 9-11.

The Church often took local legendary or mythological figures and turned
them into Catholic saints.  Buddhists have done this, too.  Tibetan Buddhism
is a retelling of the ancient animist beliefs of the mountain people, but
revised to teach Buddhist principles.

Just because it ain't historically accurate doesn't mean it ain't the truth.
