A Letter to Saint Philonella

I wonder many things about your life. I am thrilled to know as much as I do, since there is very little on so many saints that have passed through this life.

What was it like to work closely with your sister? Did you face trouble from your family for choosing this life over, say, marriage and children? What opposition did you face from male students and teachers as you studied and worked?
