O faithful virgin and glorious martyr,
Saint Philomena, who works so many miracles
on behalf of the poor and the sorrowing,
have pity on us.
You know the multitude and diversity of our needs.
Behold us at your feet,
full of misery, but full of hope.
We entreat your charity, O great Saint.
Graciously hear us and obtain from God a favorable answer
to the requests which we now humbly lay before you.
(Here mention your requests)
We are firmly convinced that through your merits,
through the scorn, the sufferings and death you endured,
united to the merits of the Passion and Death
of Jesus your spouse, we shall obtain
what we ask of you,
and in the joy of our hearts we will bless God,
who is admirable in His Saints.
Saint Philomena, Powerful with God, Pray for us!
