In 1802, the mysterious grave of this young martyr was discovered in the Roman catacombs. Her courageous story, mystically revealed to three people, told how she faced torture and death at the hands of the Roman emperor. The thirteen-year-old Philomena persevered in her virtue and Faith to the very end. She is an intrepid and powerful little intercessor before the throne of God!

I gave my first copy to a friend (a great devotee of St Philomena). Weeks later I found myself wanting to reread this issue and forgot I had given it away. I quickly re-ordered and re-read. The inspiration found in these pages stays fresh with each reading. I'm grateful for every issue and appreciative of all the work that goes into preparing a superior publication !!
