St. Peregrine, Patron Saint of Cancer Patients, 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 fibre 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.

On this bracelet I wanted to convey a message that no matter what you may be going through and God is always with you and when you sit down to enjoy that cup of coffee or tea invite Him like a good friend in time of needing comfort. That is why I added coffee and tea charms.

Includes a St. Peregrine 3rd class relic medal of St. Peregrine. Other Catholic medals include: St. Therese, St. Joseph, St. Dymphna, Mother Theresa, St. Frances "Mother" Cabrini, St. Anthony, St. John of God, St. Cosmas and St. Damian, Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, St. Bernadette.

I included a stunning glass lampwork heart with gold shimmer on center and surrounded with more lampwork beads and pearls. I also added some feminine charms.
