1. Prayer to Saint Philomena
faithful virgin and glorious martyr, St. Philomena, who works so many miracles
on behalf of the poor and sorrowing, have pity on me. You know the multitude
and diversity of my needs. Behold me at your feet, full of misery, but full of
hope. I beg your charity, O great Saint! Graciously hear me and obtain from
God a favorable answer to the request which I now humbly lay before you . . .
(name your request).
I am firmly convinced that through your merits, through the scorn, the sufferings and the death you endured, united to the merits of the Passion and death of Jesus, your Spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of you, and in the joy of my heart I will bless God, who is admirable in His Saints. Amen.
O most pure Virgin, glorious Martyr, Saint Philomena, whom God in His eternal power has revealed to the world in these unhappy days in order to revive the faith, sustain the hope and enkindle the charity of Christian souls, behold me prostrate at they feet. Deign, O Virgin, full of goodness and kindness, to receive my humble prayers and to obtain for me that purity for which thou didst sacrifice the most alluring pleasures of the world, that strength of soul which made thee resist the most terrible attacks and that ardent love for our Lord Jesus Christ, which the most frightful torments could not extinguish in thee. So, that wearing thy holy cord and imitating thee in this life, I may one day be crowned with thee in heaven. Amen.
