St. Peregrine (for the intercession of)
Father of love and mercy, you miraculously cured Saint Peregrine of an advanced cancer of his foot when the power of man could do no more. You favored him with the vision of Jesus coming down from His cross to heal his affliction. Hear the prayers we offer, through the intercession of Saint Peregrine, for the cure of the sick whom we entrust to You. May all who suffer pain, illness, or disease know that You are with them even in the depths of despair. Enable them to see Your plan and bring them closer to Your Son who accepted our sufferings to teach us the virtues of meekness and patience as we carry our crosses through life. Amen.
