St Philomena

Born: c. January 10, 291 (?) Died: c. August 10, 304 (aged 13) (?).
 
Patron Saint of Babies, Infants, and Youth
 
Little is known of her life, and the information was received by private revelation from her. Martyred at about age 14 in the early days of the Church. The figure of Philomena, young roman martyr, emerged after nearly
seventeen centuries of silence. Since the finding of her body the extraordinary presence of St. Philomena in the Church began. Since then every Pope has venerated her with his personal devotion and millions of  Catholics have felt her beneficial influence.  She has been a model of sp iritual life for many Saints, Blessed and Venerable.  Great devotion toward St. Philomena has spread all over the world and Pontiffs have
granted the Saint the "Liturgical Cult" with Mass and its own Office.
