“My children, Saint Philomena has great power with God, and she has, moreover, a kind heart; let us pray to her with confidence. Her virginity and generosity in embracing her heroic martyrdom have rendered her so agreeable to God that He will never refuse her anything that she asks for us.” — Saint John Vianney. She remains a mystery and questions abound, but her friends are many.Like St. Jude and St. Rita, St. Philomena is a patron of “hopeless” and “impossible” cases. But she is especially devoted to the needs of expectant mothers and those unable to conceive, destitute mothers, problems with children,orphans and problems in the home. We pray to her for the conversion of sinners and return to the sacraments, to intercede for the suffering. The sick and those with mental illness and the imprisoned. Priests pray to her for their vocation and works. She intercedes for food for the poor, for the missions, for real estate and financial problems.
MEDAL: Apostles Creed, ask for the grace of faith.
3 CRYSTAL BEADS: (Trinity, purity) on each, pray an Our Father in honor of the 3 Divine Persons of the Blessed Trinity in thanksgiving for all favors obtained through her intercession.

St, Philomena, beloved daughter of Jesus and Mary, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Amen.
ENDING PRAYER: Hail, O illustrious St. Philomena, who shed so courageously your blood for Christ! I bless the Lord for all the graces He has bestowed upon you during thy life, and especially at your death.
