St Philomena was a virgin martyr who was visciously tortured because she refused an adulterous marriage to the king (who was already married). she was ripped with hooks, shot with arrows and finally had a rope tied around her neck and was thrown into the river. She is a powerful intercessor, protector of virgins and the young. Many miracles have been worked through prayers to her.
