Reviews - What do customers think about I Ask St. Philomena?

Wonderful  Jul 29, 2008
This is a wonderful book about St. Philomena and her effect on the lives of those who call upon her. Its a wonderful down to earth read and a loving tribute.
Buyer Beware  Feb 6, 2008
I bought this book because I wanted to know more about this Saint. The book is not a biography of St. Philomena, it is a story about the author's devotion to her and how she gets him whatever he wants.

It presents a very childish, selfish view of "using" Saints to get whatever we want. In one chapter he literally relates the story that he wanted a Mercedes and couldn't afford it, so he asked St. Philomena and she got it for him. Throughout the book, the Saints are treated as "Genies in a bottle" almost - with a very superficial, materialistic slant.

I don't think this book would help anyone grow in holiness and sanctity. I am giving it two stars instead of one, because the author does have some useful information on learning about different Saints and picking a patron Saint of one's own. But, I urge any reader to beware of soaking up too much of this attitude that the Holy Saints of God are at our beck and call to cater to our most childish whims.

The Saints are amazing, wonderful advocates on our behalf. They help us grow in our faith and they bring us closer to God. They can act as intermediaries and advocates for us before the Holy Throne of God, but this book trivializes this in my opinion and reduces the Saints to something to be "used" for our own gratification.

I would not have purchased this book if I had read it first.
Affirmation of Faith  Apr 9, 2006
This charming book not only talks about how Saint Philomena interacts in his life (the sound of bottles knocking together when he tucked her picture in a closet), but he shares his thoughts on why it is a good idea that we use the saints for intercession. He encourages the interaction with saints by researching their lives, choosing the one who has the most meaning to you, either by name, location or occupation. He makes perfect sense when he applies his logic as to why the saints do listen to us and carry our pleas to the Highest Power. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book in one sitting. I plan to share it liberally but will make sure my name and phone number are inscribed so that it always comes home to me!
One of the best and most useful books ever!  Sep 6, 2005
I LOVED this book. I have recommended it to many friends and bought it for many others. It took me about an hour to read, but it was a life-changer. My husband and I now have a great love of and devotion to St. Philomena. We have found her intercession to be very powerful.

I can't say enough about this book. If I could buy a copy for everyone in the world, I would.
