SAINT OF THE MONTH

Saint Peregrine
Feast Day - May 1

St. Peregrine is patron of all who are afflicted by cancer, foot ailments or any incurable disease. He was a native of Forli in Italy and died in the year 1345 at the age of 85. As a young man he led a worldly and dissolute life.

St. Peregrine changed his manner of living because of the good example of St. Philip Benizi. He happened one day to strike St. Philip in anger, and was instantly converted when the saint turned the other cheek for him to hit.

PRAYER OF THE MONTH

Prayer

V. Keep us, O Lord, as the apple of your eye,
R. In the shadow of your wings protect us.

St. Peregrine, we come to you confidently to implore your aid with God in our necessity. You were converted instantly from a worldly life by the good example of one holy person.

You were cured instantaneously of cancer by God's grace and unceasing prayer. In your gracious kindness please ask the Lord to heal us also in body, mind, and soul.

May we then also imitate you in doing His work with renewed vigor and strength. Amen
