“Why are you devoted to St. Philomena?” -Mary Catherine, age 12
I’m excited about our third question from Ask the Author!
It is a long story, but I will give the highlights of my devotion to St. Philomena.
#1. She’s the reason I’m here! My mom had a difficult pregnancy with me and I wasn’t expected to live. My grandma prayed to St. Philomena and I was born perfectly healthy. St. Philomena worked a miracle so I could be here to write her story.
#3. She inspires me. St. Philomena didn’t hold anything back from God; she gave Him everything In doing that, she won eternal life in Heaven with Him. She was stubborn, she was courageous, and she was just a little girl. I ask for her intercession to help me face my trials the way she faced her trials – with hope in God and faith in His plan.
Thank you for your question, Mary Catherine! Please head over to my Ask the Author page to submit your question! I want to hear from you!
