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 ...

    I pray for wisdom, financial security, generosity and gratitude in my life. Thank God for His infinite mercy and the great examples of His martyrs. May we have the courage to emulate them and love each other no matter what the consequences or how hard the times. May every one of your needs be met and may every one of us be granted peace with and in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

    My dear St. Philomena, Patroness of the children of Mary. I firmly believe that you suffered and died for our Lord Jesus Christ and in return Jesus loved you, blessed you and favored you by His power, praise and glory to perform miracles. I pray for those in need of your divine intersession.

    Dear St. Philomena, I know that you can work wonders with the Holy Spirit. So please incline your ear to my prayers and beg God to help my family and myself. Please allow my grandfather to get better and if it is not God's will that he remain with us please ask that he not suffer in the least bit while in the hospital. Please ask that my family be kept safe and that no more accidents occur. And please, help me to find the first thing I need to do to get my health back. Help my body calm down so that I may take things I need to take to get better. Help me deal with my anxieties, help me sleep, help me know with certainty the new direction I should take my life in, help me to get support from my family should I need to go back to school, help me to heal emotionally, spiritually, but most of all physically because I am tired of not feeling well. Help me to have faith that I will be ok and that God has a wonderful life planned for me. Help me to know that deep in my heart and have the courage to do what I need to allow that into my life. Please intercede for us with Our Blessed Mother and all of the Heavenly Court. We need your prayers more than ever. Thank you for helping me in any way you already have. Amen.

    St Philomena most gracious Intercessor I humbly ask you to continue to pray for my family and specifically my daughter Gillian. May she be safe from the snares of the Devil. You have provided the most powerful and generous gifts of help and intercession with God for both me and my daughter Gillian. She has been removed from demonic bondage and given me instant relief from intense pain. Thank you Saint Philomena, beloved virgin spouse of Our Lord God. Pray for us. Amen.

    I prayed to St. Philomena for a few months several years ago when my bestfriend's mother, whose birthday also falls on her feastday Aug. 11, introduced me to her. But for several years, i have forgotten her. Then lately, something happened to my 16 years old daughter. Then, a contemplative priest with gifts of charisms, Fr. Pio, helped us. He gave me a medallion of St. Philomena who, he said, promised him that she will help me. So now, I always use the medallion. I am amazed that even if my friendship with the saint was shortlived before, she, through Jesus and Mary, instantly came to help me and my young daughter. Now, I am more at peace being in her presence always. I desire to learn more about her, that's how I got to this site, and to renew my devotion to her. Praise God for all the people who developed this site and the video by Steve, and for this wonderful Saint Philomena!

    Oh Lord, Thank you for all the good things you give us through the intercession of St Philomena. If you have a problem and you have prayed for along time without any change, please quickly try St Philomena Novena because she will never disappoint you.

    I have tried this several times and she always answer my requests.

    God bless you all

    Dearest glorious Saint. I humbly bow before you and seek your intercession to help my daughters. My eldest daughter is plagued with an eating disorder. I ask that you ask our precious Lord to heal her and free her of the demons of this condition. Please restore her to complete health. My other teenage daughter struggles at school and has very few friends. Her confidence is low. This saddens both of us. Please help her with her reading, spelling and understanding of subjects. I am grateful to you for the opportunity to lay my burdens at your feet. Thank you dear Saint. Please help us.

    Blessed and ever amazing St. Philomena, I am in awe of your devotion and love for Jesus and the divine Mother Mary. I would like to be like you - loving Jesus in consummate happiness. Please pray for us who have recourse to you. I ask you especially to pray for my marriage, my husband who is asking for divorce, and my two young beautiful children. Already separated for close to 10 years from my husband, I have never failed to believe deep inside that God has very wonderful plans for us and this suffering is only so that his name and his works can be glorified soon! Whatever the Lord has destined for me I accept and obey. I only ask, blessed saint, that you intercede for me to your divine spouse, Jesus, and ask his never ending mercy on my family. I also ask you humbly to pray to Jesus through the intercession of Mother Mary to give me courage and wisdom to withstand any persecution and that God provide me whatever is necessary to raise the children. In Jesus' name, I thank you and promise to spread devotion to you wherever I go. St. Philomena Please Pray for Us!
