A novena is when we pray for 9 consecutive days to obtain answers to our needs, problems, financial problems, illness and other favors. Like St. Jude and St. Rita, St. Philomena is a patron of "hopeless" and "impossible" cases. If you would like to seek help with problems about health, marriage, money, real estate and other needs, try praying the novena to st Philomena. She is known to be powerful in cases like expectant mothers, problems with children, sterility, real estate, etc.
Start with the sign of the cross:
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
O 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.. (mention your intention).
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. Amen.
Saint Philomena, powerful with God, pray for us! Saint Philomena, powerful with God, hear our prayers!
