We do too. And they need our prayers.
So we’re excited to announce that the next novena we will pray is to the patron saint of cancer patients: St. Peregrine.
This will be a first for us — we have never prayed through St. Peregrine’s intercession before. But after receiving many requests for this novena, we are really looking forward to what we believe will be a very powerful prayer.
Saint Peregrine had a cancerous ulcer on his leg which was miraculously cured when it was thought to be beyond saving. So we will pray for all cancer patients, for all who suffer from life-threatening illnesses, for all their families & friends, as well as for physicians and scientists working to discover a cure.
We all seem to know someone, in one way or another, who has been diagnosed with a terminal disease. So we hope you will join us in praying the St. Peregrine novena for them, and that you will share it with all of your friends & family.
They can sign up to pray with us HERE.
St. Peregrine’s feast day is May 1st. But as with every novena, you can pray it any time of the year — and we will start this one on January 7th. It’s one week away, so be sure to get the word out!
We’re praying for you!
P.S. Today is a Holy Day of Obligation as we celebrate Mary, the Mother of God.
