And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth… you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
Jesus, gracious and loving Lord, you knew the pain of abandonment when your friends denied and ran away from you. The experience of sickness or caring for loved ones often leaves us feeling alone and isolated. Help us to feel your presence and send your Spirit of Comfort upon us. We trust in your Word that says we will never be alone for you are with us always. With you by our side, may we reach out to others suffering and isolated so that no one feels alone.
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. When your leg wound became infected and gangrenous, you shut yourself off from others to spare them from unpleasantness. Yet, you bore all with an unflinching spirit, confident that the Lord would hear your prayers. Once healed, you went out again to minister among the sick and suffering. Intercede for us, we pray, that we might also reflect your courage and confidence in the healing power of the Lord who calls us to be together in his name.
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.
