Faithful virgin and glorious martyr, St. Philomena, who works so many miracles on behalf of the poor and 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 obtain from God
a favorable answer to the request which I now humbly lay before
thee…(Here mention your petition.) I am firmly convinced that
through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings, and the
death thou didst endure, united to the merits of the Passion and
death 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.
St. Philomena, powerful with God, pray for us.
