Gloria Patri…         or        Glory Be…

O Jesus, our great High Priest, Hear my humble prayers on behalf of your priest, Father Antony. Give him a deep faith, a bright and firm hope and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of his priestly life.

In his loneliness, comfort him, In his sorrows, strengthen him, In his frustrations, point out to him that it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and show him that he is needed by the Church, he is needed by souls, he is needed for the work of redemption.

O loving Mother Mary, Mother of Priests, take to your heart your son who is close to you because of his priestly ordination, and because of the power which he has received to carry on the work of Christ in a world which needs him so much.
Be his comfort, be his joy, be his strength, and especially help him to live and to defend your church against the devil and his evil spirits who wander about the world for the ruin of souls.

Our Lady of the Taper.

Saint David, pray for him.

Saint Antony, pray for him.

Novena Prayer of Healing for Cancer

Oh great Saint Peregrine, you have been called The Mighty and The Wonder-Worker because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who ask your intercession.For many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, and you had recourse to the Source of all grace when the power of man could do no more.

You were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His cross to heal your affliction. Please ask of God and Our Lady the cure of these sick whom we entrust to you. Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God an eternal song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.
