Princess of Paradise

Today is the feast of a thirteen year-old girl martyred for the Faith in the third century. She is a special patron of mine; my daughter Mary Philomena is named in her honor. For those of you who would like to learn more about this young saint who has been honored by Pope Saint Pius X and Saint Jean Vianney among others, the link to the official site of her Sanctuary in Mugnano, Italy is: www.philomena.it

Saint Philomena, Princess of Paradise, Patroness of the Children of Mary, powerful with God, pray for us.
