Saint of Chastity
Why are we writing about this particular Saint? Her life story is little known to man, but well known by God. This you will see clearly confirmed by the thousands upon thousands of miracles granted, down through the centuries, through her intercession. These miracles, in themselves, could fill a book.
That Saint Philomena has touched the hearts of many, you need only to visit the Shrines of powerful Saints, like the Curé of Ars St. John Vianney, and see the place she held in their hearts, a living testimony of the role the little Saint of Chastity has always had in God’s Plan of salvation.
Why do we say in God’s Plan of salvation? If you recall, although Jesus cared for the bodies of the poor souls who approached him for physical healings, he was more concerned with the salvation of their souls. We will not only be speaking of the healing of the body brought about miraculously through her intercession, we will speak of the role she wants to play in the salvation of souls. Whereas, we know our Saint mostly for the miracles brought about through her intercession, we will be touching on the role God is giving her to play in your hearts and the hearts of your children, and grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
