Day 7 - St. Peregrine Novena

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's 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's also remember to pray for everyone else's needs and intentions during this novena. 

Dear holy servant of God, St. Peregrine, we pray today for healing.
Intercede for us! God healed you of cancer and others were healed by your prayers. Please pray for the physical healing of…
(Mention your intentions)
These intentions bring us to our knees seeking your intercession for healing.
We are humbled by our physical limitations and ailments. We are so weak and so powerless. We are completely dependent upon God. And so, we ask that you pray for us…
Pray for us, that in our pain we will not become selfish but ever more selfless!
We know, St. Peregrine, that you are a powerful intercessor because your life was completely given to God. We know that in as much as you pray for our healing, you are praying even more for our salvation.
A life of holiness like yours is more important than a life free of suffering and disease. Pray for our healing, but pray even more that we might come as close to Our Lord as you are.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
