On San Marcos Avenue in St. Augustine, Florida, stands the replicated Mission Nombre de Dios. Towering over the mission is a 208-foot stainless steel cross marking the site of the first known Catholic mass celebrated in Florida in 1620. A few hundred miles to the north in Montgomery, Alabama, sits the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, known to many as the birthplace of the civil rights movement. Newport, Rhode Island's Touro Synagogue, dedicated in 1763, urged new leaders Washington and Jefferson to form a government which to bigotry gives no sanction, to persecution no assistance. From the pre-Columbian Anasazi kivas of Colorado built in the 1300s to the Peace Chapel constructed in 1970 on the Canadian border, this work examines the roots of 51 historic sites throughout the United States. Each entry provides detailed background material on the place of worship and those who established it, along with its location and religious affiliation. Sites include those devoted to Indian or Native American, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Catholic, Protestant, Mormon, Baha'i, and other beliefs. The essays also place the church or site into an historical perspective, tracing how their foundings impacted the development of the United States.

Philomena's wealthy parents had decided to visit the Emperor in Rome, and 13-year-old Philomena went with them. But in Rome, trouble arose. The Emperor, who was not a Christian, decided he wished to marry the beautiful Philomena, although he already had a wife. But Philomena had promised Our Lord she would never marry. The Emperor was very angry, and he threw Philomena into prison to change her mind. There Our Lady appeared to her, giving her the grace to be brave in suffering and never to consent to the sinful marriage. The angry Emperor had her beaten-but angels healed her wounds. Then she was thrown into the Tiber River with an anchor around her neck-but angels rescued her. Finally, the Emperor ordered a lance to be driven through the back of Philomena's head: her faithful soul went straight to Heaven. The Christians buried her body in the catacombs. Centuries later, in 1802, workmen digging beneath the streets of Rome discovered Philomena's tomb. Her relics were moved to Mugnano, Italy, and many miracles began occurring there-blind, deaf and crippled people were cured. When a very sick woman named Pauline Jaricot was cured after prayers to Philomena, the Holy Father had a study made. Then in 1837 he added her name to the list of saints. Over the years many people have received favors and miracles from St. Philomena-the little saint known as "the wonderworker" and "Philomena, powerful with God."

Wie viele andere Mütter verliert auch Philomena ihren Sohn, aus Anthony Lee wird mit drei Jahren Michael Hess.
