St Peregrine Prayer

O great St Peregrine, you have been called ‘The Mighty, ‘ ‘The Wonder-Worker, ‘ because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.

For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more.

You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction.

Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.

(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.

Prayer to St Peregrine

St Peregrine, whom Holy Mother Church has declared Patron of those suffering from Cancer, I confidently turn to you for help in my present sickness.

I beg your kind intercession.

Ask God to relieve me of this sickness, if it be His Holy Will.

Plead with the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Sorrows, whom you loved so tenderly and in union with whom you have suffered the pains of Cancer, that she may help me with her powerful prayers and loving consolation.

But if it should be God’s Holy Will that I bear this sickness, obtain for me the courage and strength to accept these trials from the loving hand of God with patience and resignation because he knows what is best for the salvation of my soul.

St Peregrine, be my friend and patron.

Help me to imitate you in accepting suffering, and to unite myself with Jesus Crucified and the Mother of Sorrows, as you did.

I offer my pains to God with all the love of my heart, for his glory and the salvation of souls, especially my own. Amen.

Prayer to St Peregrine Patron Saint of Cancer Patients

Glorious wonder-worker, St. Peregrine, you answered the divine call with a ready spirit and forsook all the comforts of a life of ease and all the empty honours of the world to dedicate yourself to God in the Order of His holy Mother.

You laboured manfully for the salvation of souls.

In union with Jesus crucified you endured painful sufferings with such patience as to deserve to be healed miraculously of incurable cancer in your leg by a touch of His divine hand.

Obtain for me the grace to answer every call of God and to fulfil His will in all the events of life.

Enkindle in my heart a consuming zeal for the salvation of all men.

Deliver me from the infirmities that afflict my body (especially… )

Obtain for me also a perfect resignation to the sufferings it may please God to send me, so that, imitating our crucified Savior and His sorrowful Mother, I may merit eternal glory in heaven.

St. Peregrine, pray for me and for all who invoke your aid.
