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.

    The story of how I know Saint. Philomena is a good one. My family and I went to a special mass and there was a foundation called" Treasures of the Church" which brought relics of different saints that included bone particles, pieces of flesh... And when I came to St. Philomena. When I touched it, I felt this small buzzing that soon extended to my spine and when I let go, it stopped. St. Philomena inspired me to live a holy life. I hope that when I die, I can meet you in heaven. God bless you,Saint. Philomena.

    I've been praying your novena for a while now with no change. I'm determined to continue but it is difficult. Years ago you answered my prayers with a miracle and I believe in my heart it will happen again. Please take my petitions to God and intercede for me sweet St. Philomena. Please restore my faith, I need you. Please bless all on this forum.

    St. Philomena, please help my husband to return to us and be a father to our children and a husband again. Help him accept the guidance of the Holy Spirit and Our Lord Jesus Christ, and let go of all the evil in his life distracting him from being a good husband. Help my family, please St. Philomena.

    i heard of St Philomena way back in 1992. i was to be baptised on easter and did not want to have a christian name. my fren gave me a leaflet of St. Philomena feast day and convinced me to take this name cos St. Philo's feast falls on the day my son was killed by a crazy driver in front of our home. With pain and thinking that there must be a reason for this, i adopted this name & have not used it. Everyone calls me by my fist name & philo is only known to my hubby & daughters & the church registry. On my son's 1st anniversary of passing, my hubby, hurt & dejected, visited SFX church in Petaling Jaya during the charismatic prayer.There a member said that someone had requested a prayer to St. Philomena & had sent flowers. Surprised, he listened & returned home. To-day, curiosity has brought me back to seek St. Philomena's story & am happy that there are so many prayers answered thru' her. She must be Great. :)
