Requiescat in Pace
Dear Devotees of Saint Philomena and friends of her Sanctuary,
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to the greatest devotee of Saint Philomena in our time.
Monsignor Giovanni Braschi
October 24, 1943 - February 26, 2021
Rector of the Sanctuary of Saint Philomena
Custodian of the Sacred Body of Saint Philomena
President and Spiritual Director of the Universal Archconfraternity of Saint Philomena
Passed away suddenly on February 26th, 10:30 in the Sanctuary of Saint Philomena in the presence of loved ones. He was suffering from bronchitis over the past week which had worsened in the past day. Today Our Lord called him home when his heart stopped.
Msgr. Braschi or as he was affectionately known, Don Giovanni, has always recounted that he wanted to take his last breath in the Sanctuary of Saint Philomena which had been his home for more than 37 years and he loved dearly.
He was the worldwide expert on everything related to Saint Philomena and was definitely the greatest devotee of Saint Philomena our time has known. He is now in the presence of Saint Philomena and is at peace.

“My children, St. Philomena has great power with God. Her virginity and generosity in embracing heroic martydom has rendered her so agreeable to God that He will never refuse anything that she asks for us.”
