“This day you shall be with Me in paradise.” - Luke 23,42

Opening Prayer

O good St. Peregrine, patron of those suffering from foot ailments, cancer, and incurable diseases, grant, we beseech you, relief from suffering to (name the names of the persons who are ill).

In your compassion, we beg you to intercede with Our Lord Jesus Christ that mankind may soon find a cure for the dread disease of physical cancer as well as for the moral cancer which grips so much of our world today. Amen.

Daily Novena Prayer

Finally, O good St. Peregrine, we ask that you intercede for those whom God sees fit to call home. May they die in happiness and peace, confident that they will be with You forever in the presence of Jesus and Mary. Amen.

St. Peregrine, pray that we may have strength and comfort in the hour of our death.

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 honors of the world to dedicate yourself to God in the Order of His holy Mother. 

You labored 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 fulfill 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 us. 

Closing Prayer

And, if God wills, please obtain a cure of the illness of (mention the name(s) here) through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

This is so very comforting and healing. This novena has gently revealed another part of the mystery of suffering and it has shown me, thru St Peregrine , that by cooperating with Grace, we may learn to imitate our Lord.... Danielle, again, thank you... May .the Holy Spirit continue to inspire you.
