Novena to St Philomena the Wonder Worker for the healing of autism


Each person (who has autism or an autism related condition) whose name is sent to be included in this novena will be prayed for regularly by a priest of Lourdes, France at the grotto. Only the first name of the person is needed for the purpose of this novena. Everyone is invited to send names: parents, grandparents, teachers, doctors, aunties, therapists etc.

The novena is held twice every month from: the 1st to the 9th of the Month and from the 10th to the 18th of the month.

(My oldest child received a big healing from autism through prayer).


It is interesting how the Church is Mother.

Before the only plenary indulgence was the Crusades.


Then St. Francis got that.


Pray the rosary before the BS.
Pray it together in family or community.

And on and on.
