Father of life and health, thank you for this new life and day. As we celebrate the Feast of St. Peregrine, friar servant of Mary, help us imitate his example of humility, patience, prayer and endurance in suffering. As we seek his intercession before your merciful and healing hands, like him, may we also surrender everything - our health and life to you. Help our unbelief and lack of trust and patience to our own sufferings or the suffering of others sometimes. Grant these through Christ our Lord. Amen.
St. Peregrine, pray for us.
Fr. Edgar Benedi-an, OSM
