St. Philomena The Wonder Worker

St. Philomena The Wonder Worker by Father Paul O’Sullivan, O.P.  is an absolutely wonderful book that will greatly aid in furthering a devotion to this saint.

I read this several years ago and our entire family enjoyed it and developed a devotion to this saint.

She was a favorite of St. John Vianney and he promoted her devotion far and wide.

I was looking for this book in an online format so it could be shared on the blog and I was able to find a PDF version of it.

While reading from an actual book is easier, this books is only 90 or so pages and the online version would be free so I thought it worthwhile to put it up here.

If you would like to purchase this book you can find a few copies on Ebay for under $6 here. You can also find newer versions on Amazon here.

And if you would rather read it online or download the pdf  just click here.

Additionally, here is a litany composed by St. John Vianney to help encourage her intercession for us.
