St. Peregrine: Patron Saint of Cancer Patients

Prayer to Saint Peregrine

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.

 

Novena to St. Peregrine

GLORIOUS WONDER-WORKER, St. Peregrine,
You answered the divine call
With a ready spirit,
And forsook all the comforts of the world
To dedicate yourself to God
In the Order of His Most Holy Mother.

You labored manfully
For the salvation of souls;
And in union with Jesus Crucified
You endured the most painful sufferings
With such patience
As to deserve to be
Healed miraculously
Of an 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 fulfill His Will
In all the events of life.

Enkindle in my heart
A consuming zeal
For the salvation of souls;
Deliver me from the infirmities
that afflict my body

(name your petition)

Obtain for me
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.

Amen.

St. Peregrine, pray for me
And for all who invoke your aid. (3 times)



Saint Peregrine Laziosi - Catholic Online

The following information is from Catholic Online:

Peregrine Laziosi was born of a wealthy family at Forli, Italy, in 1260. As a youth he was active in politics as a member of the anti-papal party. During one uprising, which the Pope sent St. Philip Benizi to mediate, Philip was struck in the face by Peregrine. When Philip offered the other cheek, Peregrine was so overcome that he repented and converted to Catholicism.

Following the instructions of the Virgin Mary received in a vision, Peregrine went to Siena and joined the Servites. It is believed that he never allowed himself to sit down for thirty years, while as far as possible, observing silence and solitude. Sometime later, Peregrine was sent to Forli to found a new house of the Servite Order. An ideal priest, he had a reputation for fervent preaching and being a good confessor.

When he was afflicted with cancer of the foot and amputation had been decided upon, he spent the night before the operation, in prayer. The following morning he was completely cured. This miracle caused his reputation to become widespread. 

He died in 1345 at the age of eighty-five, and he was canonized by Pope Benedict XIII in 1726. St. Peregrine, like St. Paul, was in open defiance of the Church as a youth. Once given the grace of conversion he became one of the great saints of his time. His great fervor and qualities as a confessor brought many back to the true Faith. Afflicted with cancer, Peregrine turned to God and was richly rewarded for his Faith, enabling him over many years to lead others to the truth.  He is the patron of cancer patients.

Miraculous Signs of Archangel Michael

By Loci B. Lenar

While traveling through the town of Netcong, located in Morris County, New Jersey, I stopped into St. Michael's Catholic Church to say some prayers. The church has a beautiful display of stained glass windows and statues. I   normally carry a camera and decided to snap some photos.  Remarkably, the image of Saint Michael has a rainbow that appeared while photographing the statue. To read my testimony and its connection to current events, and to view this stunning photograph in a larger format, please visit the following link:  Miraculous Signs of Archangel Michael.

Prayer to Mitigate Natural Disasters

The Sacred Heart

God the Father, we join together in prayer and petition heaven for divine intervention to mitigate earthquakes and natural disasters throughout the world.

We invoke the powerful name of Jesus to calm the storms of time and to bring forth a millennium of peace and tranquility.

We pray to the Virgin Mary to interecede on behalf of Humanity for God's hand of mercy to bless us with divine protection.

We ask this and thank thee in the name of Jesus. Amen

I wrote the prayer in 2010 as a result of the earthquake in Haiti.

The Lord inspired me to compose a prayer in order to petition God to mitigate earthquakes and disasters while I was praying for the victims and families of Haiti. 

Please join in by reciting the prayer daily. 

Thank you very much for your thoughtful prayer support.

Angelic Tails: True Stories of Heavenly Canine Companions

This new book is by author Joan Wester Anderson, renown for writing books on angelic visitations and miracles.

The following excerpt is from Loyola Press: Angelic Tails is a collection of down-to-earth true stories from ordinary people who believe that God has graced their lives through heavenly canine companions. Each of the 30 stories challenges readers to reconsider their conception of angels—from the story of a former Air Force colonel whose golden retrievers served as his heavenly helpers in the Colorado wilderness to the account of St. John Bosco, who, for more than 30 years, was protected by an angelic dog as he walked the dangerous city streets. In the end, for all who see through the eyes of faith, this book is evidence that God can use even muddy paws and cold noses to fulfill his purposes in our world.

Miraculous Photo: Shield of Archangel Michael

In August of 2005, a Cross of Light appeared for the first time on Mr. Lenar's backyard fence in Mine Hill, New Jersey, USA.  The same bright cross has subsequently appeared every year from 2005 to 2013 during Lent and Holy Week. Loci Lenar says that Fr. Richard Tartaglia has confirmed this phenonmena by visiting his home several times and photographing the sign in 2012 and 2013. 

Fr. Tartaglia spoke about this sign in his Homily during a prayer service held at St. Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. For more details on this story, please visit the Homepage on this site.

Where Miracles Happen

Commentary by Loci B. Lenar

Joan Wester Anderson and her updated book, Where Miracles Happen, is inspiring and touched my soul with God's spiritual presence. While reading Part One: Miracles through Prayer, I was captivated in the story, A Light in Her Life. The inspiring story with added illustrations is posted on our blog at the following link: Angels Wonders, and Miracles of Faith.  Visit our Homepage  for my thoughts on Joan's new book.

Pray for World Peace

Please pray daily to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to change the course of history into an era of peace.  Also pray the Holy Rosary and request the Blessed Mother to intercede on behalf of humanity.

During her 1917 apparitions in Fatima, Portugal, Our Lady of Fatima foretold of an era of peace.  For information connecting her message to scripture, please read Revelation 20:1-3,  A Thousand-year Reign of God's Peace.

Divine Mercy Prayer

The Lord's blessing and grace flows through the recitation of The Chaplet of Divine Mercy.  Pray daily or in time of need!
