Prayer Request

My aunt is currently undergoing heavy cancer treatment. I would very much appreciate your prayers and anyone else reading this.

God bless.

Please add your prayers to JC Cowan’s, for there is more strength found there than men imagine.

Here is a prayer to St. Peregrine of the Friar Order Servants of Mary, who is one of the patron saints charged with carrying the prayers for salvation from such illnesses to the altars of heaven, and joining his prayers to ours:

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 an incurable cancer in your leg by a touch of His divine hand. 

Obtain for us the grace to answer every call of God and to fulfill His will in all the events of life. Enkindle in our hearts a consuming zeal for the salvation of all men. 

Deliver her from the infirmities that afflict the body JC Cowan’s aunt, who is beloved of you. 

Obtain for her also a perfect resignation to the sufferings it may please God to send me, so that, imitating our crucified Savior and His sorrowful Mother, she may merit eternal glory in heaven.

St. Peregrine, pray for us and for all who invoke your aid.
