Prayer to Saint Peregrine
Oh great Saint Peregrine,
you who have been called "The Mighty" and "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 fiber of our being, and who had recourse
to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more.
You were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross
to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady their intercession for
Theresa whom we entrust to you.
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.
