ST PHILOMENA STATUE - 8"
Boxed Nothing historical is known about this holy woman save that her tomb indicated that she was a virgin and martyr. She is the only person to have been canonized based solely on reports of intercessory prayers and miracles. She was a great patroness to such lights as St. John Vianney and St. Pauline Jaricot. This lovely image shows her in the traditional image familiar to so many. Dressed in a pale coral gown holding the palm of martyrdom, an arrow and standing next to an anchor, believed to be instruments of her torment and death. Add to the cart or wish list above.
