 Our Description

Saint Philomena - Powerful with God

In May 1802, excavators in the ancient Catacomb of St. Priscilla in Rome came upon a well-intact shelf tomb sealed with terra-cotta slabs in the manner usually reserved for nobility or great martyrs.  The tomb was marked with three tiles, inscribed with the following confusing words: LUMENA/PAXTE/CUMFI.  However, if one places the first tile last and separates the words properly, the very intelligible sentence emerges: Pax tecum, Filumena, which is, "Peace be with you, Philomena." Also inscribed on the tiles were several symbols: a lily, arrows, an anchor and a lance, which would appear to indicate virginity and martyrdom.  Inside the coffin there were discovered the remains of a girl of about twelve or thirteen years of age, along with a vial or ampulla of her dried blood.

In this comprehensive book about St. Philomena, Sister Marie Helene Mohr, S.C. has told the entire story of the discovery of her relics, their transfer to Mugnano, her many miracles and her final acceptance by the Pope as a saint, as well as the role of Ven. Pauline Jaricot and the Cure of Ars in making her known to the world, plus numerous stories of cures, favors and graces obtained through her intercession - all of which are certain to inspire the reader with devotion to this powerful saint.  Also included are stories of the various shrines of the Saint (both in the United States and in Europe), plus powerful prayers for St. Philomena's intercession.
