to St. Peregrine
Patron Against Cancer
O God, who gave to St. Peregrine an Angel
for his companion, the Mother of God for his Teacher, and
Jesus as the Physician of his malady, grant we beseech You
through his merits that we may on earth intensely love our
Holy Angel, the blessed Virgin Mary, and our Saviour, and
in Him bless them forever. Grant that we may receive the favor
which we now petition. We ask this through the same Christ
our Lord. Amen.
(say 7 Our Fathers, 7 Hail Marys and 7 Glory
be to the Fathers with
the invocation "St. Peregrine, pray for us.")
O God, in St. Peregrine You gave us an outstanding
example of faith and patience. We humbly ask You that, by
imitating him and by the help of his prayers, we may believe
more fully in Your healing help, bear the suffering of this
life without wavering, and come with joy to the peace of heaven.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Dear Apostle of Emilia and member of the
Order of Mary, you spread the Good News by your word, and
by your life witnessed to its truth. In union with Jesus crucified,
you endured excruciating sufferings so patiently as to be
healed miraculously of cancer in the leg. If it is agreeable
to God, obtain relief and cure for N., and keep us all from
the dread cancer of sin. Amen.
Glorious wonder-worker, St. Peregrine, you
answered the divine call with a ready spirit, and forsook
all the comforts of a life of ease and all the empty honors
of the world to dedicate yourself to God in the Order of His
holy Mother. You labored manfully for the salvation of souls.
In union with Jesus crucified, you endured painful sufferings
with such patience as to deserve to be healed miraculously
of an incurable cancer in your leg by a touch of His divine
Hand. Obtain for me the grace to answer ever call of God and
to fulfill His will in all the events of life. Enkindle in
my heart a consuming zeal for the salvation of all men. Deliver
me from the infirmities that afflict my body, especially (name
your ailments). Obtain for me also a perfect resignation to
the sufferings it may please God to send me, so that, imitating
our crucified Saviour and His sorrowful Mother, I may merit
eternal glory in heaven. Amen.
St. Peregrine, pray for me and for all who
invoke your aid.

For Sick Relatives and Friends
O great St. Peregrine, thou hast been called
"The Mighty," "The Wonder-Worker" because
of the numerous miracles which thou hast obtained from God
for those who have had recourse to thee, thou who for so many
years didst bear in thine 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; thou who wast favored with the vision of Jesus coming
down from His Cross to heal thy affliction, ask of God and
Our Lady, the cure of these sick persons whom we entrust to
thee. (Name them)

A PRAYER TO SAINT PEREGRINE FOR WORLD
Saint Peregrine, you spent your early years

to work for peace and understanding in today's world. Help
people of violence redirect their energy to building the Kingdom
