Saint Corona: Patron Saint And Protector Against Plagues & Epidemics

In Anzù, Northern Italy, the hotbed of the coronavirus in Europe, is a basilica where the relics of Saint Victor and Saint Corona are being preserved since the 9th century.
Saint Corona was only fifteen when she professed her Christian Faith during the persecution of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius around 165.
Corona was arrested and tied by her feet to the tops of two palm trees which were bent to the ground. When the palms were let loose she was torn apart. According to the Roman Martyrology, this happened in Syria.
Saint Corona is especially venerated in Austria and Bavaria as the Patron Saint against epidemics.

Her feast day is May 14.

And more

As the world finds itself in the grip of the global Covid-19 Pandemic, many people are discovering and turning to a little known 2nd-Century Catholic Saint named Saint Corona.

During the Middle Ages, she was often invoked by treasure hunters, likely due to her name, which means “Crown”, as coins of the time would often feature the crown of the ruler who issues them.
Saint Corona’s feast day, along with Saint Victor, is May 14th.



  1. The image is like Jesus on the cross. He's been accused of not having the power to save Himself, and neither could she. Interesting.

    1. She got some springtime associations as well-
      Yah, it's interesting

  2. Hi Penny

    Seems to me an increasingly desperate Western imperialism (at its core the "Nazi" bankers) is resorting to biological warfare, including on its "own" people.

    But it won't work. Their attack on rising China already largely failed. "Communist" China is no match for them (besides, it has its own traditional medicine which works).

    It's probably also a desperate attempt to keep / get more control over their "own" countries (think e.g. the yellow vests). They want more totaltarianism / police state.
    It won't work. They're merely shooting themselves in the foot.

    1. Loon of Alabama (of the dogmatic, i.e. dictatorial / totalitarian disinfo media) seems to hint (a bit like Dubya) at more totalitarianism / police state in the West (like post-9/11).

      (although I normally never read him, but since you sometimes mention him)

    2. I don't normally read the loon either. Unfortunately his opinion pops up somewhere and then I do.

      When I take the time, I check his sources and very often what he writes and what he cites have nothing to do with one another.

      I still recall his report that Turkey was going to annex Mosul... YUp, they were.
      Mosul is still in Iraq.
      Why he wrote such garbage I'll never know?
      And that's not all of it- He's stridently anti Turk like the rest of the dogmatic media while almost never mentioning US/Kurdish occupation. Why?
