Local artists are looking to the ancient St. Corona, a 16-year-old martyr, for help after the Coronavirus outbreak stalls their business.

The Internet is abuzz because the Holy Roman Catholic Church, with its CEO in the Vatican Corporation offices, has just unearthed a long forgotten female saint, St. Corona.

St. Corona
Victor and Corona's memorial day is November 24 (Nov. 11 on the Greek Orthodox Church calendar). Their feast day is May 14 [about the time this pandemic should have faded away].

In northern Italy, outside the town of Feltre, on the slopes of Mt. Miesna, there is a Church of Saints Vittore e Corona (, erected by the murderous European Crusaders from Feltre after the First Christian/Catholic Crusade that set out to kill infidel foreigners.

St. Corona is venerated in Austria and eastern Bavaria, where she is invoked in connection with superstitions involving money, such as gambling and treasure hunting ("German cathedral dusts off relics of St. Corona, patron of epidemics,", March 25, 2020). More
