A lady told me this story which happened over eighty years ago in Ireland. One of her relatives was very ill. The family did not telephone the doctor to come to the house because they knew that if they did not have the money to pay him that he would refuse to come. They prayed to St. Philomena for help for the sick family member. Later on in the day the doctor came to the house to see the sick girl. They were stunned and asked him who had asked him to come. He said that a tall girl with long black hair had come into his office and had paid the fee and asked him to come down to their home to visit the sick girl. The family had not talked about the matter to anyone except to St. Philomena in prayer.
