Did you know there is actually a St. Corona?

On this week’s episode of The Catholic Talk Show, Ryan Scheel, Ryan DellaCrosse, and Fr. Rich Pagano discuss “The Catholic Church, Plagues, & The Coronavirus.”

Who is St. Corona?

“She’s being called on in Northern Italy where her remains are,” Fr. Pagano begins.

“She was a teenager, and was in a married relationship. She and her brother-in-law, St. Victor (they kind of go hand-in-hand) were martyred.

“As Roman soldiers gouged out St. Victor’s eyes, she cried out to encourage him to not give up. He kept the faith and boldly proclaimed it. He was martyred and then they captured her, and essentially, tied her to two bent-over palm trees and they ripped her from limb-to-limb.”

“She was definitely sought after from that period of time on because of how many miracles came from her intercession, as well as St. Victor, as it relates to epidemics and pandemics.

“St. Corona is a very, very powerful witness.”
