Notes to Serve For
the History of St. Philomena
and Manual of the Arch-confraternity,
Translated from the French by Agnes Sadlier.
The writer states that he “differs from most historians in refusing to recognize as canonical the pretended revelations in regard to St. Philomena. . . Imitating the wise reserve of the Church, he will state legends merely as legends, and he feels sure that the love of the faithful for St. Philomena will not be lessened.”
Contents of this book include chapters on: The Christian Cemeteries, Invention of the body of St. Philomena, Invocations to St. Philomena, The Cord and Chaplet of St. Philomena, Mass of St. Philomena, Prose, Hymn and Canticles, etc.
