St. Peregrine Novena

Saint Peregrine NovenaSt. Peregrine is the Patron Saint of Cancer Patients.

St. Peregrine was known for his holiness but also for a miraculous healing that he received.

He was scheduled to have his leg amputated because of a cancerous growth. The night before the surgery, he prayed for healing, received a vision of Christ coming down from the cross to touch his leg and was completely healed.

St. Peregrine Novena Prayers

Dear holy servant of God, St. Peregrine, we pray today for healing.

Intercede for us! God healed you of cancer and others were healed by your prayers. Please pray for the physical healing of…

(Mention your intentions)

These intentions bring us to our knees seeking your intercession for healing.

We are humbled by our physical limitations and ailments. We are so weak and so powerless. We are completely dependent upon God. And so, we ask that you pray for us…

Day 1 – Pray for us, that we will not let sickness bring us to despair
Day 2 – Pray for us, that we may persevere in hope
Day 3 – Pray for us, that we will have the courage to offer up our suffering in unity with the Cross
Day 4 – Pray for us, that the loneliness of our suffering will be consoled
Day 5 – Pray for us, that the fear of death will be replaced with the hope of everlasting life
Day 6 – Pray for us, that our suffering will not rob us of joy
Day 7 – Pray for us, that in our pain we will not become selfish but ever more selfless
Day 8 – Pray for us, that this sickness will teach me to depend more and more on God
Day 9 – Pray for us, that our lives will glorify God alone

We know, St. Peregrine, that you are a powerful intercessor because your life was completely given to God. We know that in as much as you pray for our healing, you are praying even more for our salvation.

A life of holiness like yours is more important that a life free of suffering and disease. Pray for our healing, but pray even more that we might come as close to Our Lord as you are.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

  7. I’m due to start another 10 episodes of radiotherapy on Wednesday 30th November in the hopes that this will halt the growth of a malignant sarcoma tumour in my chest area and prevent this disease spreading elsewhere. Had 10 sessions 2 years ago which shrunk it slightly and it hasn’t responded to oral medication. However, I’m totally surprised that my oral medication was continued at my last consultation as I fully expected it to be stopped as tumour had grown another few millimetres and I’m absolutely astonished that radiotherapy has been offered again, as this was something I never expected.
    So I’m praying to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Our Blessed Lady, St Peregrine, my Guardian Angel and a host of other Angels and Saints for a safe and successful outcome from this treatment.
    I’m also praying for the healing of all of us on this website who are suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses and all our wonderful families, friends, doctors, nurses and all those involved in our care and support. Please pray for me. Thank you so much and God bless us all. And God bless John-Paul and Annie for these novena websites.

  8. St. Peregrine please pray for my son in law Chris. He starts chemo on Monday. Please think of his young daughter and wife. They need him so very much. I have faith that you and our Blessed Mother can together heal Chris and strengthen his faith in our Lord. Hear my prayers dear St. Peregrine.

  9. Dear God thank you St Perigrine for the intercesion for that second chance of life although at times been backsliding as usual. Please help me to pray, been in pain this past days and worried that cancer has manifested in my left breast or been plain muscular strain. Hoping it would be the latter. Thank you believing i will be totally healed both physically, emotionally and spiritually.
