Daughter of Light – St. Philomena
St. Philomena, virgin and martyr, was a young Roman girl virtuous and wise beyond her years; moreover, she's brave and heroic. Having vowed herself to Christ, she declines the marriage proposal of the despot Diocletian, the wicked emperor of Rome. He punishes her with imprisonment and torture but miracle after miracle occur and she defies death. When her final hour does arrive, she valiantly suffers death for Our Lord and the Catholic Faith.
