Philomena - reach out to the angels
This beautiful Greek princess was one of many youngsters who died at the hands of Diocletian in the 3rd and 4th century. The emperor himself wanted to marry her, but when she refused he had her brutally tortured and tried numerous ways to kill her. It is said angels healed her through prayer, but she was eventually decapitated at the age of 13.
