Happy Feast of St. Philomena!


Today is the feast of Saint Philomena, my patroness and a powerful little saint. Martyred at age 13 for refusing to break her vow of consecrated virginity to Christ, she stands as a bold witness to the grace held out to each of us in times of trial and to the lengths at which we ought to go to be wholly devoted to Christ. May she intercede for all who come to this little blog.

Hail, O holy Saint Philomena, whom I acknowledge after Mary as my advocate with the Divine Spouse, intercede for me now and at the hour of my death. Saint Philomena, beloved daughter of Jesus and Mary, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
