Day 9 - Saint Peregrine Novena
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
I put myself in the presence of the Lord Jesus,
I remain in silence to let myself be invaded by the presence of Jesus, Mary, Saint Peregrin,
« Son, here is Your Mother. « (John 19, 27)
To love Mary: to love like the Lord Jesus, to be like Him, source of joy, to share everything with Her, even the Cross. I have my cross to bear: it is the sign of my belonging. I need Mary to help me do it ... Holiness is not a luxury, but a duty. Great holiness always becomes simple if I truly belong to Mary. I give my Mother complete freedom so that She can use Me as I want.
Prayer of the day:
Lord Jesus, You who in your great goodness gave your servant Saint Peregrine a great and deep devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, grant me this same favor. Train me the child of Mary. Good and Most Merciful Jesus, give me Your Most Holy Mother, the Blessed and Immaculate Virgin Mary, who is also mine. Amen.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father
Saint Peregrine, pray for me.
Saint Peregrine, pray for all those who suffer.
Saint Peregrine, you who suffered, put in my heart, Faith, Hope and Peace.
Offer up a small sacrifice, a resolution for this day.
When we think about it, we will find lots of resolutions to offer, "just for today". Some examples: going to mass, a visit to the Blessed Sacrament, quitting smoking or watching TV for a day, a gesture of love towards someone who needs it, a phone call or a short prayer ...
Let us pray:
Prayer for healing of people with cancer
Lord Jesus, it is with confidence that I begin this novena with You and Mary, our Holy and Virgin Mother, to obtain, by the intercession of Saint Pérégrin, the healing of ……. suffering from cancer.
