Prayer for Cancer Victims

In your spare time, please pray for my aunt who was diagnosed with breast cancer.  St. Peregrine is the patron saint of cancer patients.   He himself was stricken with the disease. The night before the operation to remove the cancer on his leg, he prayed before the image of the crucified Christ in the priory chapter room.  His prayer led him into a deep trance-like sleep during which he envisioned the crucified Christ leaving the cross and touching his cancerous leg. When Peregrine awakened from the trance of prayer, he discovered the wound healed and the leg saved.

Please pray that God may heal my aunt from this affliction.

A Prayer to St. Peregrine for Sick Relatives and Friends

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called "The Mighty", the "The Wonder Worker" because of the numerous miracles which you obtained from God for those who have turned to you in their need.   For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being.   You turned to God when the power of human beings could do no more, 
and you were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His cross to heal your affliction. I now ask God to heal these sick persons whom I entrust to you:

(Here mention their names)

Aided by your powerful intercession, I shall sing with Mary a hymn of gratitude to God for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.
