Dear Saint Peregrine I need your help. I feel so uncertain of my
life right now. Serious illness (for myself, family, friends) test
my faith in God. Help me imitate your enduring faith when you faced
the ugliness of cancer and surgery. Allow me to trust the Lord the
way you did in this moment of distress. I want to be cured, but
right now I ask God for the strength to bear this cross in my life.
I ask for the grace not to despair. I seek the power to proclaim
God's presence in my life despite the hardship, anguish, and fear I
now experience. Oh glorious Saint Peregrine be an inspiration to me
and a petitioner of these needed graces from our loving Father.
