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.

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. Dear St. Peregrine,

    Please help us with prayers, my sister in-law Pelargia has breast cancer.
    Two weeks ago she had an operation to remove the tumour in the breast. She went back for review and this is what the consultant / Doctor told them:

    He (doctor) has told us that the breast tissue margins are clear and that all is well. However, they found a little tumour in the nymph node which is disappointing. He has put two options on the table.
    1. To have surgery next week Friday and to take out all the nymph nodes.
    2. To just do radiotherapy on both arm and breast.

    Both procedures are equally effective but the difference is that with Surgery they can be assured they have removed all the cancer cells as would not be the case with radiotherapy. Pela has chosen to go with surgery, this will happen next week Friday 1st July 2016. Again samples will be sent for testing and we go from there.

    Thank you all for your prayers.

    It had Mary on one side and St Peregrine on the other.
    Of all of the gowns that get mixed up and thrown around, folded and put away, this one lands on her.
    It was a very special moment and I truly feel that this was a sign sent down from above.

    My mom is suffering a huge battle w ovarian cancer and the doctors are not giving us much hope. Please pray that my mom, Catherine Perez, can be healed and given back to us.
