St. Philomena was a young woman who was martyred for Christ long ago. Her tomb and relics were discovered in 1802 in the catacombs of Rome. In 1805 her relics were enshrined in a Roman Catholic Church in the village of Mugnano, near Naples, Italy. Miracles and answers to prayer began to occur for those who asked the Holy Martyr Philomena’s intercessions. She is counted as an intercessor for persons with mental illness, bodily ills, prisoners, lost causes, and many other concerns.
