St. Peregrine Relic Charm Bracelet

He received a vision of Our Lady who told him to go to Siena, Italy, and there to join the Servites. After training and ordination, they assigned him to his home town. He lived and worked, as much as possible, in complete silence, in solitude, and without sitting down for 30 years in an attempt to do penance for his early life. When he did speak, he was known as a fervent preacher, excellent orator, and gentle confessor. Founded a Servite house at Forli. A victim of a spreading cancer in his foot, Peregrine was scheduled for an amputation. The night before the operation, he spent in prayer; that night received a vision of Christ who healed him with a touch. The next morning, Peregrine found his cancer completely healed.

Prayer to Saint Peregrine For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you. (Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)
O great St. Peregrine, you have been called "The Mighty," "The Wonder-Worker," because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.

This is a special bracelet I like to create to honor St. Peregrine. When I create a bracelet in his honor, I like to add feminine charms because I know that for a woman it is very important to keep feeling feminine and beautiful, how important it is to continue dressing up and keep uplifted all the time.
Cancer touched my life when my mother was diagnosed with cancer and five years later my sister-in-law and I know how important it was for them to continue wanting to dress up and try to look their best, that is the reason I add those charms besides all the Catholic medals as a reminder that Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and all Our Saints are with us all the time and St. Peregrine as a great intercessor for those suffering from that terrible illness.
