Saint Philomena, known as "the Wonderworker," has become very popular in recent times because her grave was only discovered in the 19th Century, after being lost for centuries. It was found in the catacombs and contained some small bones and a vial of her blood, which had crystallized into a jewel-like form. Many miracles have occurred as a result of her intercession. Apparently, she was courted by the Emperor Diocletian but she had vowed her virginity to Christ. In his rage, he had her brutally tortured and killed at age thirteen. Most images portray her with black hair. The anchor is a symbol of faith and also part of her martyrdom, along with the arrows. Sue has incorporated the martyr's palm into the background and dressed her in red for martyrs.
The original was painted in acrylics on a 9 x 12" board.
IMPORTANT: Each of the 3 sizes indicates outside dimensions. There is a border of white left around the image, approximately 1 1/2" to 2" all around.
