Prayer Request

I'll get back to my usual posting in the next few days, but today I have a special request. Because I believe in the power of prayer, I'm making public my request for intercession for Sue, who is undergoing a Gamma Knife Procedure this week. Sue is a wife and mother and has courageously battled cancer for years. I will be lifting Sue in my own prayers, but certainly the more prayers for her, the better. I also found this prayer online that I'd like to share...perhaps you know someone who needs it as well.

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.
