Saint Philomena was a Virgin and Martyr, died at a young age in the year 304AD. Feast day on the 11th of August.
Her remains we found in the early 19th century in the catacombs of Priscilla at Rome. Inscribed on Her tomb was “PAC TECUM FILUMENA”, translated to “Peace be to you, Philomena.”
Also inscribed were three symbols 2 anchors, 3 arrows, and a palm.
Emperor Diocletian wanted to marry Philomena but she refused as she has consecrated her life to God. This angered Emperor Diocletian, he had Philomena imprisoned, scourged, anchor put around her neck and put in a river and shot with arrows but She miraculously survived all the attempts at Her life. Enraged the Emperor had Philomena behead, She died a Martyr of the church.
PRAYER TO SAINT PHILOMENA
O Saint Philomena, Virgin and Martyr, whom God glorifies by so many miracles, whom the Vicar of Jesus Christ has named the Protectress of The Living Rosary and the Children of Mary,
manifest, more and more plainly from the heights of Heaven, that a voice holy as shine cannot be denied and that we have the right to rely upon thine aid.
Obtain for us the grace to be faithful to Jesus Christ, even to death.
