Prayers Urgently Requested

Please stop and offer prayer for Kathleen Schuck, OPL, the treasurer of my Lay Dominican Chapter of Bl. Margaret of Castello. Yesterday, although she was in pain, the cause of which was unknown, she was eating barbecue and celebrating with the chapter; today, she is in the hospital, and the doctors say it is very serious.

Prayer to Saint Peregrine

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called "The Mighty," "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 fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.

(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying.)

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.

  1. I am saying prayers for her. And thank you for posting this prayer -- I have been looking for a formal prayer to St. Peregrine for some time to say on behalf of my 12 year old son who has Leukemia. Thank you and God bless and heal Kathleen through St. Peregrine's intercession.
