Durable and everlasting laminated holy prayer card that contains a color image of St. Philomena on the front, and the Novena to St. Philomena on the back. Card measures 2 1/2 inch by 4 1/2 inch. Back of card reads: Patron of Working People and of Christian Education of Poor People. Faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, who workest so many miracles on behalf of the poor and the sorrowing, have pity on me. Thou knowest the multitude and diversity of my needs. Behold me at thy feet, full of misery but full of hope. I entreat thy charity, O great saint! Graciously hear me and deign to obtain from God a favorable hearing for the request which I now humbly lay before thee. (Here specify petition.) I am firmly convinced that through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings, the death thou hast undergone, united to the merits of death and passion of Jesus thy spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of thee: and in the joy of my heart I will bless God who is admirable in His saints. Amen. Made in Italy!
A kind stranger introduced me to St. Philomena, giving me a book about her and a blessed medal.
I began wearing it with my crucifix pendant and praying and talking to her on some troubling issues I had almost given up on. It took a few months, but I started realizing, hey, I am not suffering so much about "such&such" (very personal matter) lately. I feel such kindness, concern, and love from her. God must truly answer her prayer requests in which we have asked her help. Please get to know her. She truly seems to love to share her love of God and special blessings and graces from Him with all who merely ask and pray to her.
Thank You for the help with Sharing!

I often leave the prayer cards at church for people to pick up. God bless.
