Novena to Saint Peregrine 2

Novena to
Saint Peregrine 2

(To obtain cancer cures)

St. Peregrine was born in 1260 at Forlì, Italy to an affluent family. He lived a comfortable life as a youth, and politically opposed the papacy.  After he experienced the forgiveness of St. Philip Benizi, he changed his life and joined the Servite order.  He was ordained a priest, and later returned to his home to establish a Servite community.  There he was widely known for his preaching, penances, and counsel in the confessional.  He was cured of cancer, after he received a vision of Christ on the cross reaching out His hand to touch his impaired limb.  He died in 1345 and was canonized in 1726.  He is the patron of cancer patients.

Repeat this prayer for nine days...

Oh great Saint Peregrine, 
you who have been called "The Mighty" 
and "The Wonder-Worker" 
because of the numerous miracles 
which you have obtained from God 
for those who have had recourse to you. 
For so many years you bore in your own flesh 
this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, 
and who had recourse to the source of all grace 
when the power of man could do no more. 
You were favored with the vision of Jesus 
coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. 
Ask of God and Our Lady, 
the cure of these sick persons whom we entrust to you. 

(State your intention here...)

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, 
we shall sing to God, 
now and for all eternity, 
a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.
