My friend’s mother is suffering from cancer and has taken a turn for the worse. Please keep her in your prayers.
Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the Sick, we turn to You in this time of illness. O dearest comforter of the troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with Your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden.
Dear God, we place our worries in Your hands. We place our sick under Your care and humbly ask that You restore Your servant to health again.
Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge Your holy will and know that whatsoever You do, You do for the love of us. Amen.
Grant we beseech Thee, O God, Our Lord, that these thy servants may enjoy enduring health of mind and body; and that, through the glorious intercession of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, they may be freed from present sorrow and possess eternal joy, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Father, your Son accepted our sufferings to teach us the virtue of patience in human illness. Hear the prayers we offer for our sick brothers and sisters. May all who suffer pain, illness or disease realize that they are chosen to be saints, and know that they are joined to Christ in his suffering for the salvation of the world, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Almighty and Eternal God, the everlasting Health of them that believe: hear us for Thy sick servant, for whom we implore the aid of Thy pitying mercy, that, with his (her) bodily health restored, he (she) may give thanks to Thee in Thy Church. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Saint Peregrine, pray for us.
O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder Worker” because of the numerous miracles which you obtained from God for those who have turned to you in their need. For so many years, you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being. You turned to God when the power of human beings could do no more, and you were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His cross to heal your affliction. I now ask God to heal these sick persons whom I entrust to you. Aided by your powerful intercession, I shall sing with Mary a hymn of gratitude to God for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.
