Novena to St. Peregrine – Day 5

PergMosaic1Day 5 – Prayer for Patience in Suffering

Ps 37

Commit your way to the Lord;
Trust in him, and he will act,
And make your uprightness shine like the light;
The justice of our cause like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord and wait in patience;
Do not fret… calm your anger, and forget your rage…
But those who hope in the Lord,
They shall inherit the land.

Lord Jesus, you are slow to anger and abounding in kindness. During your passion, you patiently bore insults, humiliation, and more pain than we can imagine. Please do not allow to become burdened with more than we can bear. Teach us to be patient in affliction. With your loving presence at our side, reassure us. Show us that we can endure our personal crosses out of love for you and our fellow believers.

Our Father, who art in heaven…
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you….
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit…

Dear St. Peregrine, brother and friend, faithful Servant of Mary, kindly listen to our plea. You followed the peaceful and gentle Christ. Even when struck with illness, you showed patience and strength in your infirmity. Help us to bear our own trials in life with patience and a smile, confident in knowing that our suffering serves some greater purpose even if perhaps known to God alone.

May God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, whose holiness shines forth in you, St. Peregrine, receive all honor and glory forever. Amen.

St. Peregrine, pray for us.
