The Address


Some of you may have noticed the web address of this blog and wondered about the 'philomenarocks' part. Well, Saint Philomena is my patroness and an incredible saint. She's a 13 year old virgin martyr from the early church who gives us a bold witness of faith, courage, chastity, and sanctity (among other virtues). You can find out more about her on the website for her shrine in Italy:

If you'd like to read a book about her, I suggest Fr. Paul O'Sullivan's "Saint Philomena, The Wonder-Worker", found here:

Sorry, I haven't figured out how to link to other sites yet, so 'copy and paste' is the best I can offer.
