Angat Vice Mayor Jowar Bautista discovers Saint Corona, patron saint of pandemics
Angat Vice Mayor Jowar Bautista shared an interesting trivia on his Facebook page.
Apparently, there is a Saint Corona and she is known to be the patron saint of pandemics and epidemics. Her remains are buried at a basilica in Anzu, Northern Italy which is coincidentally the current epicenter of COVID-19.
Saint Corona lived during the rule of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
At age 15, she married a Roman soldier who did not know she was Catholic. It was discovered when she saved San Victor when he was being tortured. She kneeled in front of San Victor and prayed for him—an action that led to her own torture and imprisonment and eventual death.
