St. Peregrine

Gavin's friend Aleigha's Mommy found this and shared it with us so I wanted to put it on here as welll so we can share it! ....

St. Peregrine is the heavenly patron of those afflicted by cancer, by any ailment of the leg, or by any incurable disease.

Prayer to Saint Peregrine

O God, who gave to St. Peregrine an angel for his companion, the Mother of God for his Teacher, and Jesus for the physician of his malady: grant, we as You, through his merits, that we may on earth intensely love our holy angel, the Blessed Virgin, and our Saviour, and in heaven bless them forever, Grant that we receive the favor which we now petition through the same Christ out Lord Amen.

Say 1 our father, hail mary, Glory be to the father with the invocation : St. Peregrine pray for us.

St. Peregrine was converted by St. Philip, O.S.M. He entered the order of the servants of Mary in 1283. Thus began 62 years of unbelievable penance as Peregrine made reparation for the sins of his youth. His feast day is May 2nd. St. Peregrine is universally invoked as a PATRON of Cancer Victims because a cancerous growth on his own leg was miraculously cured.
