Daily Spiritual Reflection
Friends, under more normal circumstances we would have celebrated our monthly healing Mass in honor of St. Peregrine today. Please join the Servite Community in praying to St. Peregrine for all who need healing.
Prayer to St. Peregrine
Saint Peregrine, we turn to you with confidence and ask that you intercede for us in our need for healing.
When you yourself were sick, you found comfort in prayer before the image of Christ crucified.
Now you live forever blessed in everlasting light.
Intercede for us with the risen Lord that he might extend his healing hand and cure the illnesses that afflict us.
Faithful servant of the Blessed Virgin, intercede with the Lord of glory that he might free us from our suffering and show once more the power of his saving love.
O good friar, sleepless in supplication, intercede with the Lord of life that he might remove the shadow of illness and restore us to joy in the light of recovered health, rendering thanks to Jesus Christ, our Savior.
Saint Peregrine, unite your voice to our prayer: Intercede for us and for all who are sick, as did the Centurion for his servant, Martha and Mary for their brother Lazarus, and the Virgin Mary for the spouses at Cana, so that we, too, may experience your powerful protection over the poor and the sick.
To God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, whose holiness you reflect, O Saint Peregrine, be all honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.
Fr. Don Siple, OSM, Rector of The Grotto
