Who is St. Philomena? Pope Gregory XVI referred to her as the wonder-worker of the nineteenth century. Bl. Pope Pius XI declared her the 'Patroness of the Children of Mary. St. John Vianney attributed all of his miracles to her, stating, 'I have never asked for anything through the intercession of my Little Saint without having been answered. This early virgin-martyr continues her wonder-working ways in our twenty-first century. Devotion to St. Philomena is spreading like a re-kindled wildfire throughout the universal Church today, with testimonies to her miraculous intercession being received by the international shrine of St. Philomena in Mugnano, Italy, from all parts of the world.
