Novena to St. Philomena

Leader: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

All: Amen

All: I believe in God, the Father Almighty/ Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ/ His only Son our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit/ and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate/ was crucified/ died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day/ He rose again. He ascended into heaven/ and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again/ to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit/ the Holy Catholic Church/ the communion of saints/ the forgiveness of sins/ the resurrection of the body/ and the life everlasting. Amen.
