St. Margaret of Antioch
One legend understood mystically by the medieval Church relates that this saint, when under persecution, was confronted by a dragon (Satan) which devoured her, but the cross she carried in her hand so irritated his throat that he was forced to disgorge her (therefore she is the patroness of childbirth). The next day, attempts were made to execute her by fire and then by drowning, but she was miraculously saved and converted thousands of spectators witnessing her ordeal - all of whom were promptly executed. Finally she was beheaded in 304 A.D. St. Margaret's Church celebrates its Patronal Festival on the Sunday closest to the 20th July.
