Available on backorder
Philomena, [2nd Century], virgin & martyr. In 1802, a tomb was uncovered in the catacombs which held the body of a 13-15 year old girl with a broken skull. Her cult spread rapidly. St. John Vianney called her his “dear little saint.” She was credited with many miracles and answered prayers. From her tomb we find her symbols of arrows, anchors and flowers. Her cult was suppressed in 1961. She is patron of desperate, forgotten, impossible and lost causes. Her feast was August 10.
