Novena for my Dad and all who are suffering from cancer

Will you join me in a novena for my Dad and all those who have cancer starting on Sunday, December 11? My Dad just found out on Thursday that he has cancer in the small intestines. We don’t know yet if the cancer has spread. We should know more this week. But we’d like to storm heaven with prayers for him and all of your loved ones with cancer. Feel free to put the names of your loved ones who are battling cancer in the comment line.


St. Peregrine, whom Holy Mother Church has declared Patron of those suffering from Cancer, I confidently turn to you for help in Tod Masters’ present sickness. I beg your kind intercession. Ask God to relieve him of this sickness, if it be his Holy Will. Plead with the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Sorrows, whom you loved so tenderly and in union with whom you have suffered the pains of Cancer, that she may help Tod Masters with her powerful prayers and loving consolation.

But if it should be God’s Holy Will that he bears this sickness, obtain for him the courage and strength to accept these trails from the loving hand of God with patience and resignation, because Our Lord knows what is best for the salvation of Tod Masters’ soul. St. Peregrine, be our friend and patron. Help us to imitate you in accepting suffering, and to unite ourselves with Jesus Crucified and the Mother of Sorrows, as you did. I offer my pains to God with all the love of my heart, for his glory and the salvation of souls, especially the soul of Tod Masters. We pray this prayer in the precious and holy name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
