Sometimes you just have to meet a new saint (of course she isn't new ...just new to me) and I am delighted with St. Philomena....her amazing story of faith and her dedication to Christ. Let those who have gone before us...be our companions on the pilgrim journey. Amen
In the 19th century, the Dominican Sister Maria Luisa had a vision of Saint Philomena, a Greek princess persecuted for her Christian faith. According to the vision, Saint Philomena, a 13-year-old princess, faced opposition when her family converted to Christianity. The family sought refuge in Rome to avoid conflict, but Emperor Dioclesan became infatuated with Philomena. Dedicated to Christ, she rejected his proposal, which angered the Emperor. In retaliation, Philomena endured excruciating torments, including
being pierced by arrows, tied to an anchor and thrown into water, and ultimately beheaded, all due to her unwavering faith. Her remains were later discovered in the Catacombs of Priscilla in Rome, sparking a surge of devotion. Saint Philomena is known as the "Wonderworker" due to the numerous miracles attributed to her intercession.
