Today, let us pray for all cancer patients and others who are suffering once more. Let us pray that their lives -- that all of our lives -- will glorify God alone. We do not exist for any other reason. Let us pray that we all live for our true purpose: for Him. 🙏🕊❤

 

Thank you for joining me in praying the St. Peregrine Novena these last 9 days. Continue to pray for each other. God bless.

With as many advances as there are in medicine and science, it's easy to look to doctors for a cure and a fix to our suffering. It's easy to depend on them. And while doctors are important, helpful, and can provide life-saving treatments, everything is ultimately in God's hands. So today let us pray that we all may come to depend more on God through our suffering. 🙏🕊❤

St. Peregrine Novena (Day 7 w/ Dcn. Phúc)

St. Peregrine Novena (Day 7 w/ Dcn. Phúc)

January 17, 2022

When the saints suffered, they allowed that suffering to bring them closer to Christ on the cross. They became Christ-like, even, through each pain and affliction they suffered from. Instead of becoming selfish because of their pain and suffering, they became even more selfless. So today let us pray that all cancer patients and others who suffer will become more selfless through their suffering, like the saints. And while we reflect on true selflessness, let us also remember to pray for everyone else's needs and intentions during this novena. 🙏🕊❤

St. Peregrine Novena (Day 6 w/ Dcn. Phúc)

St. Peregrine Novena (Day 6 w/ Dcn. Phúc)

January 16, 2022

Through the witness of the saints, we know that suffering has meaning. Many saints accepted suffering while others even asked for more of it. They did so because they were motivated by love and by a desire to join Christ in redemptive suffering - however painful and long. Let us pray today for all cancer patients and others who are suffering. Let us pray that their suffering will not rob them of joy and experiencing God's love for them right now. 🙏🕊❤

St. Peregrine Novena (Day 5 w/ Dcn. Phúc)

January 15, 2022

While St. Peregrine was cured of his cancer miraculously, many people will unfortunately not experience that same healing. But everyone does have the chance of enjoying an even greater reward: everlasting life with God.  So today let us pray for everyone suffering and nearing death. Let us pray that through their faith, they will not be afraid of death but will have hope in everlasting life with God. Let us pray that their fear will be relieved, and that their hope will be strengthened. 🙏🕊❤

Today let us pray that all cancer patients, as well as others dealing with chronic & life-threatening diseases, will be consoled. Let us pray that they will experience the healing presence and love of our Lord whether it be through prayer or through their interactions with others, especially through their family and friends. We also want to remember in a special way to pray for all the families and friends who know someone suffering with cancer; may God console them too. 🙏🕊❤

St. Peregrine Novena (Day 3 w/ Dcn. Phúc)

St. Peregrine Novena (Day 3 w/ Dcn. Phúc)

January 13, 2022

Today, let us pray that all cancer patients and others who suffer from debilitating diseases or illnesses will be able to offer up their suffering in union with Jesus Christ. Let us pray that their suffering will bring them closer in union with Christ as He suffered when He was on this earth. Jesus understands our human feelings and sufferings. He is capable of carrying them for us, and He wants to. So let us pray that those who are suffering are able to turn it all over to Jesus. And lastly, let us pray that we are able to help our family and friends carry their burdens, so that none of us are ever alone in our suffering. 🙏🕊❤
