Your baby has touched so many people that I believe she was the miracle–we were praying for a miracle and the whole time we had one–people praying again–people sharing their prayers with others and encouraging them to pray…that is a miracle.
I hope you find peace in the fact that your daughter and your family brought so many people together in faith. I’m not a very spiritual person but your beautiful little girl’s strength and faith in God touched my soul! She brought people together and restored faith for so many… her spirit is still here influencing us all. “What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” ~Albert Pike Thank you for being so strong and faithful and thank you Phil! #stormtheheaven
I just wanted to let you know how she changed my life and my marriage. Over 28 years of marriage my husband and I wondered away from our Lord. My sister was murdered in a domestic violence situation. I was so angry with God. I blamed him. I let all of this affect my marriage as well. I’ll be married 29 years in October, but if not for your precious daughter I probably wouldn’t be celebrating those 29 years. When social media blew up with prayers for Phil and the pictures of that beautiful girl went viral, I dug out a very old prayer book and I cried so hard. I spoke to our Lord and I asked him for forgiveness. I prayed that whole night. Within a few weeks I brought myself to apologize to my husband for distancing myself from him and asking him if we can mend what had been almost broken. We started praying together for Phil, we watched her joke of the day every night and began to laugh together again. We returned to mass, prayed the rosary, the Divine Chaplet. I have a whole new prayer book now. Your daughter mended so many things that were wrong in my life. We will continue to pray in her honor. I will never ever forget Philomena or what she did for me and my family.
Hello. Just wanted to tell you that I think you and your family is simply amazing. Your faith is beyond anything I’ve ever witnessed. I never prayed until I heard about Phil. Now, I pray all the time and will never stop. God bless Phil. She is a beautiful little girl.
You and you baby girl changed my life, you gave me my faith back after I lost all faith when my niece was killed… you and Philomena have taught me so much.
My son, Liam, passed away 12 years ago. My husband and I struggled with our faith after he passed. I have not prayed since…until I heard about Philomena. My family and I did come to the prayer service/block party and although I had already started praying myself, I think that day helped my four daughters and my husband, really see what faith in God and faith in your community can do. We now pray every day. Philomena was and is the miracle that brought us and so many people back to God. We will never stop praying.
