Novena to Saint Peregrine Laziosi, Patron Saint of those suffering from Cancer
Beautiful novena to Saint Peregrine Laziosi (also known as Pellegrino and Peregrinus), the patron saint of those suffering from cancer. St. Peregrine was miraculously healed of a cancerous growth during a vision of Christ coming down from the cross to touch his leg. His feast day is May 1. The novena may be prayed over any 9 day period, but is often started on April 22 or 23. The opening and closing prayer is said everyday with the appropriate daily prayer in the middle.
