THE FOURTEEN HOLY HELPERS - MARGARET THE VIRGIN
The Fourteen Holy Helpers are a group of saints venerated together in Roman Catholicism because their intercession was believed to be particularly effective against various diseases.
This group of "helpers in need" originated in 14th century Rhineland, due largely as a result of the epidemic that grew to become the Black Death, but their veneration spread almost as quickly as the plague.
Margaret the Virgin, also known as Margaret of Antioch,
Margaret The virgin martyr, is widely celebrated as a saint.
Having embraced Christianity as a young woman she pledged her virginity to God, this caused her pagan father to disown her.
A few years later the Roman Governor asked her to marry him but if she accepted she would have to renounce Christianity but when she refused he had her cruelly tortured before having her put to death.
Her patronage protects during childbirth, and aids the escape from devils and she is commemorated on July 20th.
