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

  46. To whom may read this comment, whether yourself,a loved one,family member or friend is afflicted with this dreaded disease my prayers go out to you. Several months ago my husband sought out some medical treatment for what he did not know was wrong with him. All he knew was that he was not himself, did not have the strength in his arms & legs as he once did. Granted we both are not getting younger, both in our 60’s & are slowing down. Certainly not to the point where it is not possible to show up for work or do general chores in & outside the home. After at least a half dozen trips to his primary doctor, 2 lung specialist & an ENT dr. Each visit proving thru blood work, everything was a- ok! Still out of work it wasn’ t until a trip to the emergency room, did the dr on call ordered a C-scan. This showed the result that by my husbsnds symptoms the doctor was leaning towards being. Swollen lymph nodes,tumors in the throat\neck area, later finding out stemming from the lungs. Now, having the first of four series of chemotherapy behind him with the numerous side effects that are associated with treatment we are left with FAITH. I had lunch with a dear friend who i don’ t get to see often, since our last visit much as taken place in our lives to catch up on. One being the death of her father on her birthday December 11, 2016 cancer was his cause of death. Before we parted she handed me the medal of St.Peregrine and said give this to your husband as her way of showing “I care”. Myself not knowing the story that goes along with this saint, I googled him to find out. What a powerful novena. I was so touched by the gift & grateful for such a thoughtful & giving friend. She intended it for her dad but never got the chance to send it for they live many miles apart. Praise to you our Wonderful & Powerful God. Amen
