November 2nd – Day of Prayer for Cancer

Day of Prayer for Cancer

June 1st – Day of Prayer for CancerThroughout Wednesday’s liturgies at the National Shrine of St. Jude, we will pray in a special way for all those who suffer from cancer. We invite you to join us November 2nd, and on the first Wednesday of every month, as we call upon St. Jude for the healing of cancer. Please send your special intentions for healing and remembrance of those affected by cancer to the Shrine or join our prayer circle of healing by posting your prayer to our Day of Prayer for Cancer wall below.


We pray together: St. Jude, you are the bearer of abiding hope. I place myself in your care as I bear the cross of cancer. I trust that you intercede constantly for me, giving me courage when I am afraid, strength when I grow weary, hope for my most difficult challenges. Most faithful patron, may you remind me always of the love and healing God offers to each of His children. Amen.

    St. Jude, patron saint of hopeless cases, pray for us. O Holy St. Jude, help me when I feel hopeless and alone. Come to my aid in this great need, and ask God to assist me in my troubles and sufferings, particularly for who ever started the fight tonight and everybody else involved, for peace, love, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, generosity, self-control and so that we may experience the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. In the name of Jesus, through Mary and Joseph, associating his intercession to the Holy Family, who he is relative, and I promise to gratefully encourage devotion to him, as appreciation to his favors. Amen.
    Prayerfully, Brother Carlos L. Torres
