About St. Philomena

Although very little is known about St. Philomena, devotion to her is widespread. She is known as a powerful intercessor and many saints and popes have had a devotion to her.

For hundreds of years, St. Philomena was entirely unknown, but then in 1802 the bones of a young girl were discovered in the catacomb of St. Priscilla in Rome. The tomb indicated that she was likely a virgin and martyr named Philomena. In 1805 the remains were moved to Mugnano, Italy and there were soon reports of miraculous healings taking place there.

According to catholic.org, “Her popularity soon became widespread, with her most memorable devotees being St. John Vianney, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, St. Peter Eymard, and St. Peter Chanel. After being miraculously cured, Ven. Pauline Jaricot insisted that Pope Gregory XVI begin an examination for the beatification of St. Philomena, who was to become known as the “wonder worker”. After hundreds of other miraculous cures, she was beatified in 1837. St. Philomena, who the pope named as the Patroness of the Living Rosary and the Patroness of the Children of Mary, is the only person recognized as a saint solely on the basis of her powerful intercession.”

St. Philomena Novena Prayers

Dearest St. Philomena, your prayers are powerful because you are so close to Our Lord. Your child-like faith and devotion are an inspiration to all of the faithful. Many miracles have occurred as a result of your intercession. In your closeness to Our Lord, please lift up these my intentions in prayer…

(state your intentions)

St. Philomena, at such a young age, you gave everything to Jesus to be come a consecrated virgin for the Kingdom. Giving even more, you gave your live as you suffered a martyr’s death to preserve your gift to our Lord. Pray for me, that I might have the same faith and willingness to accept God’s will no matter the cost.

Amen.

  21. Dear Saint Philomena I need Your help. Please come to my aide. I need to talk to PM tonight please let him and I speak, let him and I talk about us please. I truly and honestly need Your help.

I am lost and confused and I truly need a miracle on my petitions please. I love PM and I need Your help.

  23. Dear Saint Philomena, I am confused. I was told something about PM but I don’t know if to believe it. I feel like I’m losing him. I’ve come this far with him and I don’t want to let him go. Please it is breaking my heart every day that I wish to be with him and finally for PM to initiate our relationship. Please I ask You to guide me to the right person that could knock down any black magic they may be doing to him. Please. Guide me to that person and let it work. I don’t know what to think anymore but I don’t want him to leave me. Please let the 2 ladies I trust be right about him. That he will ask me to be his girlfriend and that we will be happy together. Please help me for I can’t do this on my own. Please don’t let what I’m doing go in vain. Amen.

  24. Dear Saint Philomena, I come and ask for continuous help with PM. I’m scared of losing him. We haven’t texted since Thursday and I don’t know what’s going on. Please let him go back to the ways when he would text me and call me. Let him feel love for me like I feel for him. I know they tell me he’s falling for me but I don’t know what to do, he makes me nervous when we don’t speak. Please let him and I initiate our relationship as it has been a little over 2 months and I don’t know what he thinks. Please let PM go back to calling me and texting me. Let him miss me like I miss him. Open his heart to let mine in. Please Saint Philomena, help me and show me a miracle in all of this. Amen.

  25. Dear Saint Philomena, I come here to continue asking for Your help. Something happened when PM and I spent the day together. He acted different and even mentioned how he wanted to get rid of the phone I keep in contact with him. I know he’s not good at technology but I didn’t expect him to want to get rid of his phone. Then he walked away without a kiss. I am not sure what’s going on. I’m scared as he doesn’t communicate as much with me like before. I feel like I’m fighting a battle I can’t win. They say he loves me but I am not sure sometimes. Please help me for I can’t do this on my own. Please let him and I spend more quality time together and let us be happy with each other please? I truly need Your help in this. Amen.

  26. Dear Saint Philomena, I desperately come to ask for Your help. I’m confused as to what is going on with PM. I asked if we could spend the day on Thursday as I asked for the day from work to give him quality time as we don’t see each other but once a week… yet he hasn’t replied. Please help me with PM. I’m being told he loves me and wants to be with me but I’m not too sure as to what’s going on. Please have him answer me today. Please have him want to see me. Please I do this all to give him my quality time since I work and he’s busy all the time. Please let him want to see me please I need Your help for I can’t do this on my own. Amen.

    • Hi EB: I am not sure how I came to this site (well, I am but that is not the point of my reply) and have been reading your prayers and requests to our dear Saint Philomena and I couldn’t help to stay quiet. She helped me tremendously when I was in need of help, but I also know that it was me who sought different paths to solve my problems and I did this thanks to Her.

      Please read on: The Holy Trinity and, in this case, Saint Philomena answers all our prayers in 3 ways: They say yes and give you what you want; They say No and give you something better; or they say Wait and give you the best.

      Please, move on from the “relationship” with PM and forget him – it is obvious he is not in love with you and doesn’t respect you. Stop pushing yourself into the relationship, stop trying to find goodness in him when he is interested in giving his best to others. I am afraid that pushing yourself to make him love you will only end up in your feelings getting hurt more than they have already. My mom told me when I was a little boy to remember always that God says: “help yourself (from any situation) and I will help you”. You seem like a caring and loving woman, but this man you are seeing doesn’t know your value – he is interested in other goals. Please, move on and pray for strength and a quick recovery from the “breakup” – you will be much happier and can concentrate on another person that might be truly interested in you. I hope you will read this and listen to your heart. God bless you, ASP

  27. Dear Saint Philomena, I humbly come to ask for Your help. Please help me with PM. We are trying to see where us goes and we have 2 months in this. I pray that we finally initiate a relationship as he is someone different in my life that despite my fears, he still doesn’t cease to amaze me. Saint Philomena, please guide my love into his heart and let him love me. Let him be more romantic and let him text me and call me more often like we did at the start. Please let him be as loving as he was on Monday of last week where he searched for me. Let him start wanting to spend more time with me and let his family encourage it. Please help me with PM and let us start spending more time with each other. Please for I can’t do this on my own. Amen.

  28. Dear Saint Philomena, I’m scared of losing PM. I’ve been texting him and he fails to reply. I’m not the type to complain because one we aren’t yet officially a couple and two I don’t want to push him away. They told me he’s not talking to his ex girlfriend anymore and that he wants to be with me… but not getting a response makes me believe the opposite. Please help me with PM please… I need Your help for I can’t do this on my own. I’m getting confused about what’s going on and what’s going to happen. I don’t want to lose him. Please don’t let what I’m doing go in vain and let us finally be a couple. Amen.

  29. Dear Saint Philomena, I come here for Your help. I first pray that You help me have a good day as I haven’t been really having one in a while. I’ve been scolded over following rules from our finance department. Also I am afraid of things going wrong today. Dear Saint Philomena, PM got home late last night and I’m hoping since he has been getting home early at nights he doesn’t do this as a habit. Also, I ask for Your help in removing all those who oppose from us being together. Remove the evil his ex girlfriend maybe doing to separate us and let him focus on us. Let him not communicate with her anymore as it breaks my heart just thinking about the possibility of him wanting her. Monday we spent it together and he made me happy… really happy. He asked about the little things and asked how my day was. Please let him finally ask me to be his girlfriend, we’ve been trying it for 2 months now and I finally want us to move forward with this. I’m falling for him. Please help us. Amen.

  30. Dear Saint Philomena, I desperately come to ask for Your help. I feel alone and confused. PM has been acting different with me. I wish it was all in my head but I’m not sure. I ask for Your help for PM and I to get back on track where he used to call me and ask how I was. I’m scared of losing him and I’m scared he may want someone else. I’m alone in this battle and I truly need Your help in this. So please come and hear my petition and answer my prayers. Please help me with PM and let him realize that I truly like him and truly want to be with him. Please don’t let what I’m doing go in vain. I need Your help for I can’t do this on my own. Amen.

  33. Dearest St. Philomena:
    I have a special prayer today for a great salary increase for our public safety personnel in my county. I live in a large county with a high crime rate and our officers are paid one of the lowest salaries across the metro area. Our hard working officers are leaving because other counties & cities can offer more. We only have 700 officers and should have 1100. It’s being discussed amongst the county and board of commissioners. I pray that you will intercede on their behalf and bring to them a salary that makes that dangerous job worthwhile…..to where they can live a decent life. Please, I beg of you….bring a great compensation package to fruition. It cannot wait any longer. Hear my prayers.

  34. Dearest St Philomena… I ask for your intercession to our God, through Jesus & Mary, for the miracle we need to come forth.. finances for us relocate by tbe sale of my property immediately… my mother to be in our completely & her be safe from those use & are not honorable in their ways.. for all children to safe & only be touched by others in loving-kind ways. Thank you.

  35. Dear Saint Philomena, please help me in my prayers. I need a miracle. I want PM to start talking to me more often, for him to spend more time with me. I want whatever evil anyone may be causing us goes away. I hope his mother was sincere about wanting me to be his girlfriend. I am falling for him and I need Your help. Please let us break all obstacles and all evil. Let him stay away from his exes and let him focus on us. Please I need Your help for I can’t do this on my own. Amen.
