Chaplet: Saint Philomena
Saint Philomena is one of the 4 Patron Saints of Desperate Causes. She is also the Patron Saint of babies and girls. The Saint Philomena Chaplet commemorates the virginity and martyrdom of this 13-year-old Saint who bravely faced an emperor to protect her chastity, which she had promised to God. When the emperor wanted to torture her in public for that, the angels miraculously protected her against him. All in front of the Roman people who, after seeing these miracles, converted to Christianity.
This chaplet mainly consists of 13 red beads (10 howlites and 3 crystals), symbolizing her martyrdom, 3 white jades symbolizing her virginity… and it also includes a unique mix of stones such as faceted crystals and hematites. These stones together tell her miraculous story. It also features enameled metals and the original Italian medal of Saint Philomena with Saint John Mary Vianney on the back. Saint John Vianney was the author of the litanies to this great Saint. Historical explanatory mini booklet included.
