St. Philomena’s 200th Anniversary!

St. Phlomena Virgin and Martyr

O Faithful Virgin and glorious martyr, St. Philomena, who works so many miracles on behalf of the poor and sorrowing have pity on me. Thou knowest the multitude and diversity of my needs. Behold me at thy feet, full of misery, but full of hope. I entreat thy charity, O great Saint! Graciously hear me and obtain from God a favorable answer to the request which I now humbly lay before thee ... (Here specify your petition.) I am firmly convinced that through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings and the death thou did endure, united to the merits of the Passion and death of Jesus, thy Spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of thee, and in the joy of my heart I will bless God, who is admirable in his Saints. Amen

Our Lady Said: "To Philomena nothing is refused”

One night, Mother Mary Louisa had a vision in which she saw Our Lady and St.  Philomena. The "dear little saint" confided her to the protection of the Mother of God saying: "Stand firm beneath the protection of Mary." Again, she saw Saint  Philomena laying her crown before Mary's throne saying: "Lady of Heaven, I have come to ask grace." Whereupon she solicited more than thirty graces for different persons. Our Lady replied: "To Philomena nothing is refused. "St. Gabriel wrote down the concessions with a golden pen. Then the saint  turned to Mother Mary Louisa and asked: "Have you seen how this was done? I  asked the graces from Mary, and through Mary they were granted to me."
