I am a single mother, I lost my home and contents in a house fire in December 2003. I had no fire insurance, and no help making a new start. My only source of income is child support, and that is not on a regular basis. I have many stresses and they are causing many health problems for me. My children are out of control, they have behavior problems and now they have brought problems into the school. My son failed the 7th grade and is now in summer school, which he is seriously failing in summer school. My best friend was buried today, and it has really been stressful accepting her death. My mother is seriously ill, and I am constantly worried about her. I am in college and with all the other stresses, my school work is being affected. I have a short time left, I will be graduating in December 2004. I hope to relocate, and pray for a financial blessing to make this move. God's Blessings!  Jackie

St Philomena, I ask that you pray for my petitions which I pour out to you at this time.  We would like to have another happy and healthy child.  We have tried to overcome several problems with conceiving and have had no success.  If it be for our good and the will of God Almighty may this conception occur this week.  Thank you MW

First & foremost I would like to thank God, Mama Mary, all the Angels & Saints of the impossible & the helpless for the intercession & for the answered prayers. I am really glad that even though the problems seem to be endless, by  faith I still can survive & I am able to find a headway. Again, at this point I am requesting for my prayers  to be granted again, if possible before this year end. I am really broke & my family is relying on me. I've applied for an overseas work since January & up to this time we are still waiting for the coming of our visa. Kindly intercede my prayers that me & my colleagues will be able to be deployed to the country of our choice/applied - Japan & New Zealand, if possible before the year ends. We are patiently waiting & we just do hope & pray that the Holy Spirit will bless those who are handling our documents- the employers, our agents, madam Cecil, her lawyer Atty Fajardo. May God also enlighten their hearts & their consciences that by God's grace their promises would come into reality soon. Let only the truth prevail & not deception, because in good faith we've done our very best to meet their requirements in all honesty & in Godly way.  I will continually praise  You  Lord & thank you in advance for I know, you  will listen & grant  my prayers. Amen.

I am writing on behalf of our own St. Philomena School located in Labadieville,
LA.  We are a coeducational Catholic school with 129 students in grades preK -
8th.  We have been in existence for 132 years.  Over the years, we have experienced many success and faced many challenges.  At this time, we are dealing with the possibility that
our school will close its doors at the end of this school year.  As a mother
with two children in our precious school and an alumna, this very thought is
disheartening, as you might imagine.  Our school has until January 8, 2004, to
present the diocesan school board with 130 registered students for next year and a
balanced budget.  We will hold registration during this first two weeks of December.  We are $29,000
away from having the balanced budget that we need.  For all of these reasons, I am writing to request that you pray for our school.  I truly believe that with faith and prayers we will
remain open.  As Jesus said, "Ask, and you will receive. Seek, and you will find.  Knock, and it
will be opened to you.  For the one who asks, receives.  The one who seeks, finds. 
The one who knocks, enters." Sincerely, Kris Guillot (E-mail address for St. Philomena School is

Dear St. Philomena and St Joseph, I am asking for your prayer and guidance at this time.  I am waiting for my work permit, and praying that I can get it this by March 2004 so that I can start working legally. I have a problem with my I-140 and I am afraid that the issue of my work permit will be delayed because of this.  I pray Lord that this problem of mine will be resolved. Please also grant that my family and loved ones will obtain good health.  Please pray for my mom, K.C., Aunt Sheila, Aunt Ritzelle, Jenny, Kuya Noel, Kuya Allan, Josh, Fheraigh, Allana, Jhnon and all their loved ones as well. Please bless my dad.  Forgive me for all my shortcomings.  Please guide me always in making decisions in life.  Help me Lord.  I trust You. I love you, Lord.

I pray to be pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

Please don't think I am asking you to feel sorry for me.  I am asking for prayers for the healing of my husband's mind even though I am very much affected by his behavior.  For as long as I can remember he has had a terrible temper and flys off the handle at things normal people would not be bothered by.  About 13 years ago he lost his job and things have gotten progressively worse.  He has no self esteem and a very negative attitude about people and life.  He thinks he is religious but he doesn't seem to like anyone and can't find a good word to say about many people.  I pray that he will be healed and will be patient, kind, loving, understanding, slow to anger, easy to get along with, outgoing, interacting with others in a positive way, forgiving and a peacemaker.  You see he doesn't have ANY friends and I can't get him to go hardly anywhere besides Church.  My brother had invited us to come down for Easter Sunday -he acutally likes my brother.  When I first asked him he said no he didn't really want to go.  Then yesterday he said I have a deal for you -- I will take you down to see your family Sunday after we eat.  All I said was "Why after we eat?" and he completely exploded calling me names and said he was just trying to do something to make me happy and what was wrong with me.  Maybe I too am crazy but this is not a normal response to my question.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray for him that he will be miraculously healed.  I just don't know what to do to help him and I know he is miserable and I am often miserable being around him.  We have an adult son living at home who also gets some of the abusive treatment as does our married son.  Last year there was a terrible fight between my husband and daughter in law.  Things are just not pretty.  This is Easter weekend and I know I should be celebrating and happy.  Instead I am living with this terrible secret and trying hard to help figure out how to help my husband.  Thanks for listening and PLEASE pray for us!  Anonymous

I desperately request your prayers, miracles and healing in all areas in my life. I am going through a very traumatic period having lost my job some months ago and having lost the case I brought against my employer for unfair dismissal, after holding high level positions for 17 years, suffering from severe hair loss and skin problems for several years which no treatment seems to be able to cure. I am also, through desperate prayers trying to reach out and heal Barton, the man I love so very dearly and pray for a miracle that he will return back to me one day with love. We were very happy together and were planning a future together until someone from his past returned back into his life about two years ago and after leaving him and returning back to him thrice in the last two years, she has now eventually gone back to her old boyfriend. This has left him devastated and without realising it he has changed from a gentle caring person into a cruel hard person. I love him very much and he once loved me too but he cannot seem to let go of her and still calls her up and writes to her. He now does not want to see me anymore. I desperately request your prayers for him too that the Lord opens his eyes and sets him free of her to get on with his life and be the gentle caring person he used to be and realise how much I love him. He does not seem to realise the hurt, the pain, the anguish and the heartache I am going through with him, for him and because of him. I want so much to help him let go of her and the only way I can do it is to reach out to him in prayer. We both need healing in this area of our lives. I am hurting badly because of what he put me through for the last two years without realising it. Please pray for both of us. I am emotionally, physically and mentally exhausted and have lost my self-confidence. Please also pray that I am able to find a good job. I do not feel motivated enough but I desperately need a job now. I have been without work since December and am not used to being without work but I feel as if the world has crashed down upon me and won't let me rise and stand up again. Thank you very much and God Bless you and your Ministry. 

Dear St. Philomena and St. Joseph:
I pray for my family.  Please help us to sell our home.  I know you hear the prayers and intentions deep in my heart.  Please, let us sell this house and help us find the perfect one for our family.  This is a big move for us but my children are important.  Take this crohns disease away from my son that he would never suffer anymore.  He is a wonderful son and I also ask to always watch over all of us.  Help my husband to give up his alcohol and to be a better Christian.  Watch over my daughter, that she may continue to grow in goodness and knowledge including the same for my son.  Help me to continue to thrive on prayer and patience.  Thank you and God Bless all of us.

That I marry please.  Thank YOU very much Blessed Mother for helping me.  Also please intercede for my parents, for those suffering in the world, The Pope, my friends and my enemies.  Thank you SO much!!!  Joan in KS

Great Saint Philomena, please obtain the graces to heal me of my painful affliction. Thank you.

The devotion of the Seven Sundays in honour of the Seven Sorrows and the Seven Joys of St. Joseph.

A Story of St. Joseph's timely intercession

When my daughter was about three years old she was very autistic.  We sent her to the local preschool.  She was totally unable to cope and cried a great deal and would sometimes vomit because of the stress. The pre-schooling for my daughter was totally unworkable. (She was unable to communicate at this stage of her life, but has since told me that she was afraid that I would never come back to pick her up from the preschool).

The autistic association came up with the idea of sending her to one of their schools which was many miles away.  I was amazed that this was suggested in view of the fact that my daughter could not even cope with one hour at preschool so I turned to St. Joseph for his help and for seven Sundays in a row I prayed fourteen Glorias in honour of the seven Sorrows and the Seven Joys of St. Joseph.

On the first day that she was taken in the school taxi to the special school when they arrived at the school she hopped out of the car and waved goodbye to the lady from the autistic association who was helping out and from then on my daughter had no more difficulties separating from me in order to go to school.

St. Philomena, Powerful with God Pray for us and please grant the petitions which we ask of you on this page if they be in accordance with the Will of God and for our good.  If they are not good for us please obtain for us what will be good for us.

                                          To Saint Philomena nothing is Refused.

This is not a full list of what is available.
