My Dearest Devotees

I am very happy to announce the worldwide feast program and I implore each of you to pass this newsletter on to a friend because you will be giving them the greatest gift of all, you will be introducing them to a wonder working Saint. I read day after day here at the sanctuary of the many prayers answered and miracles proclaimed through her powerful intercession. Tell your friends, neighbors, sons, daughters, grandchildren, your parents, your God children, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles: “Here is St. Philomena the Wonder Worker, if you need a miracle pray to this saint!”

Our Lord kept this pure and loving virgin martyr hidden until the time He knew we needed her most which is now. I need her and I believe you need her too. I have sent out a novena prayer in last week’s newsletter and invite you all to join me in reciting it and imploring our Saints help. I continually seek her intercession and she continues to listen and help me, every day! This doesn’t mean that my life is without trial but I can tell you every day I feel the presence and love of this Saint and I see her work in many different ways in many different lives. I am never alone for she is with me. Invite her into your life, ask her each day for her intercession with something, the burdens you carry will become lighter and you will know she is there.
