Product Description

How tired Pauline looked! How thin and pale she seemed, leaning against her pillows as the coach rattled its way from France toward Italy. Everyone knew she did not have long to live.

But Pauline was convinced that the little martyr Philomena would grant a cure at her shrine in Mugnano.

When Pauline finally arrived at the shrine, the townsfolk quickly learned she was seeking a miracle. So they decided to ask "their" Saint to cure "the French lady."

There was no response. So they begged Philomena. Again, no response. Philomena seemed to be deaf.

But her zealous devotees were not about to give up. They demanded a miracle! Some even went up and pounded on Philomena's tomb.

"Are you there, little Saint? What's the matter with you? Cure this poor French lady or it's all over between us! It's your duty, Philomena! You owe it to us!"

Pauline winced with pain to see such boldness. But she kept on praying and hoping. Was Philomena going to answer?

This book gives the answer. It also tells how young Pauline collected pennies and prayers for the missions, how she started the Living Rosary, how she helped the pagan babies in China, and how her last big project led her to disaster--and then to Heaven. All in all, this is the wonderful story of how a spoiled rich girl came to be one of the greatest lay apostles in the entire history of the Church.

Book is: Softcover. 244 pp., with a few black-and-white illustrations, a historical note, and a prayer for the glorification of Pauline Jaricot. Great book for beginner to intermediate readers.
