St. Philomena has made herself known to our family in special ways and I love that a book came out to help me share her story with my younger audience. I lost my father this past year and that has taught me that grief has many side-effects. All bring a level of suffering, some small, some seem unbearable. Though it is not necessarily the intention of this book, each page can, in my experience, be used independently as a meditation. They have helped me unite my hurting heart with that of Our dear Lord, and also find a close friend in one who suffered so great for love of Him.

Since she was finally beheaded and some more details. I told my children that later because it is not mentioned in this story. But I considered it important because of the size of this saint and the miracles she has done and continues to do in the Church, her example of love for chastity and purity but above all the courage that God is first before even her life, he turned his back on honor, power, pleasure and possession.

Editorial Reviews

Susan Hilliard (Caretaker of the National Shrine of St. Philomena, USA & Executive Board Member of the Universal Archconfraternity of St. Philomena, Italy)

My Name is Philomena is a long awaited "Children's" book on the life of St. Philomena, Virgin Martyr, whose life ended at the age of 13. It is beautifully illustrated and well written according to the historical story of her life. It should be in every home library where children can read it often. A helpful story to instill the love of God in all children, who need to have him in their thoughts.”

Colleen Carroll Campbell (Award-winning author of The Heart of Perfection, My Sisters the Saints, and The New Faithful)

“In this beautifully illustrated, poetic retelling of a lesser-known martyr’s life, Fr. Peregrine Fletcher gives today’s children a compelling model of the very virtues they’ll need to be tomorrow’s saints: courage, purity, and rock-solid faith. Read My Name Is Philomena to your own little ones and pray that God will make them a light in the darkness of their age, just as Philomena was in hers.”

Kathleen Beckman (Author and Speaker,Praying for Priests, A Family Guide to Spiritual Warfare, Beautiful Holiness)

My Name Is Philomena: A Saint’s Story is a brilliant work of art; a story to be savored by every Catholic! This lovely and original presentation of St. Philomena who is a powerful intercessor, especially for men, women and children who struggle with spiritual battles, is a moving feast for the heart. Fr. Peregrine Fletcher's book is a gift to the Church. May every Catholic home receive this gift. Ponder and pray as you turn these pages. Your heart will be enriched. Highly recommended!”

Kathryn Griffin Swegart (Award-winning author of Lucia of Fatima)

“With an artistic style reminiscent of Tomi dePaola, Father Peregrine Fletcher masterfully tells the little known tale of the martyr Saint Philomena. ”
