St. Peregrine, the patron saint for persons suffering from cancer, AIDS, or other illnesses.
St. Peregrine was born in Forlì, Italy and was ordained a priest and established a Servite community (Friar Order Servants of Mary). 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.
“The lesson of Peregrine’s life is not that God worked a miracle, but that a faithful servant placed himself, unconditionally, in the hands of God.”Wikipedia
O good Staint Peregrine, patron of those suffering from foot ailments, cancer, and incurable diseases, grant, we beseech you, relief from suffering to (name the names of the persons who are ill).
In your compassion, we beg you to intercede with Our Lord Jesus Christ that mankind may soon find a cure for the dread disease of physical cancer as well as for the moral cancer which grips so much of our world today. Amen.
