St. Philomena Comments

Little is known of her life, and the information was received by private revelation from her. Martyred at about age 14 in the early days of the Church. In 1802 the remains of a young woman were found in the catacomb of Saint Priscilla on the Via Salaria. It was covered by stones, the symbols on which indicated that the body was a martyr named Saint Philomena. The bones were exhumed, cataloged, and effectively forgotten since there was so ...

    St. Philomena I just found out about you yesterday. I wish I had known about you years ago. Your holiness and devotion at such a young age is so inspiring. St. Philomena thank you for the example of love and devotion so desperately needed in present times. Please help me to accept and understand whatever the Lord has planned for me in this life. PRAISE AND GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST.

    St. Philomena works miracles in my life... she has never let me down. One recent time was just this past Tuesday July 3rd I said a prayer, then I prayed quietly. Being thankful!!
    I asked for money to come from no where because I was in desperate need. Specifically I asked St. Philomena for money to drop out of the sky. I went to my mail box Thursday and there was a check in there for me for almost $500.00... My truck was recently repossessed and I owed $1900 for the title loan. The company sold the truck for a little over $2600 and after the fees deducted, I received the difference.. I had NO IDEA!

    God Bless St. Philomena!!

    St. Philomena, I ask that I be healed of multiple sclerosis. My family has had to watch me suffer for so long with this and I have even at times thought that I would surely die before I could wake the next day. I trust in you, St. Philomena. Also, I ask for rapid healing and return to full use of both of my shoulders. Return my husband, too, to better health and energy. We trust in you.

    I am praying to St. Philomena to provide comfort to my nephew and his wife during their times of difficulty in coping with the physical problems of their infant son Ethan. I am praying to her and asking for her to heal Ethan, who is suffering from VACTERL association and is having trouble with his digestive and intestinal system. May she hear my prayers and ask God to alleviate Ethan's problems. May he come home soon and start to grow and thrive.

    When the nuns of the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus gave me the name of Philomena they didn't tell me much about the history of St. Philomena. However, I have always felt God's divine protection and guidance in important decisions that I make in my life. It was only this morning that I "happen" to come across this website and read the very complete account of my patron saint, and I'm sure St. Philomena has been busy intervening for me. I bless this day that I discovered her.

    I learned about Saint Philomena at an orphanage in Mexico 17 years ago. The Priest in charge said that their contributions doubled in size as well as the number of children they were able to take in thanks for Saint Philomena. Not long after that our daughter conceived while doing heavy duty drugs. We told her about Saint Philomena and gave her a picture of the little Saint and she prayed for a healthy child for 9 months at which time she gave birth to a perfectly healty 9 lb 15 oz baby girl. She have our grandaughter the middle name of Phiomena. BLESSED BE GOD IN HIS ANGELS AND HIS SAINTS.
