Latest craze - Saint Philomena

You may have noticed that I get crazes about Saints from time to time. My latest is Saint Philomena. I am delighted to find that the 19th century Popes were also quite enthusiastic in promoting devotion to her.

My interest was prompted by a visit to Ancora bookshop where I picked up a small book by Rick Medina. I' call back there later to pick up the larger TAN book about her. She works some great miracles and has a sense of humour.
