I am Catholic., and I have been walking with Jesus my whole life...and He has saved me from "me" many times...LOL....
One thing I do, is pray.. a lot. I think we all do as Christians. I headed this thread Catholic only because of what I am posting. All are welcome to pray this anytime.. but I did not want to offend others who are not Catholic, or who might not understand.
A Novena is a 9 day consecutive prayer. ST. Peregrine is the patron saint of all CANCER.
I post this for all who might want the prayer to St. Peregrine. A POWERFUL intercessor.
God Bless you girlies... I sure love ya!
Prayer to Saint Peregrine
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.
St. Peregrine was born in 1260 at Forlì, Italyto an affluent family. He lived a comfortable life as a youth, and politically opposed the papacy. After he experienced the forgiveness of St. Philip Benizi, he changed his life and joined the Servite order. He was ordained a priest, and later returned to his home to establish a Servite community. There he was widely known for his preaching, penances, and counsel in the confessional. He was cured of cancer, after he received a vision of Christ on the cross reaching out His hand to touch his impaired limb. He died in 1345 and was canonized in 1726. He is the patron of cancer patients.

Hi Elainethere- I'm not sure what type of chemo yet as I have an appt. with the MO next Monday. Thank you for your advice. I hope it doesn't effect me to much. I guess it is a wait and see. Thanks again!

I wanted to share that two weeks ago I was able to venerate the relic of Saint Peregrine (a first class relic) while visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in LaCrosse, WI - I attended mass and before hand had the opportunity for confession. During that time the Priest suggested I ask for the opportunity to venerate the relic which I was able to. This was a wonderful gift and has carried me with high hopes ever since.
Has anyone else had a similar opportunity?

Hello, ladies. I'm glad I found this thread. I have IDC, triple negative and just had my first chemo session today. I'm so thankful that I found this thread full of women who understand what it's like to live with breast cancer and also understand the richness of Catholic spirituality!
I am never any good for selecting screen names, so I picked Agatha for St. Agatha of Sicily. She was one of the saints I used to think about a lot since I'm an enthusiastic amateur baker and she is patroness of bakers. Only now I look to her as a patroness of breast cancer patients, too.
My treatment is at Sloan Kettering in NYC and after my first consult with the oncologist and surgeon I was a little wound up. After the meetings I wandered a couple of blocks north and a couple east just to clear my head. I found myself at the steps of a wonderful church, St. Catherine of Siena. As soon as I stepped inside I felt immediately at ease, nurtured. There are wonderful side chapels for prayer and meditation. The parish is run Dominican Friars. At the end of the post I'll try to embed a little video about their health ministry. It's very interesting.
Please pray for me - I'll be praying for all of you, too. Peace be with you.

What a nice story about your screen name. Therese of Lisieux was my confirmation saint; that's why her name is part of my screen name.
I'm sorry you had to join us here. Triple negative cancer can be scary, and chemo is no fun. What chemo regimen are you doing?
How wonderful that you have found a spiritual sanctuary near your medical center. My daughter signed me up for an hour of perpetual adoration in my local parish on Wednesday afternoons. It sometimes means juggling my work schedule, but it's always worth it. Many blessings to you; I light a candle every week at Mass for my BC sisters and brothers.

SOme good news on BC.org member's daughter. She made it through surgery. However still in ICU so prayers still needed for her continued recovery.

Hi AgathaNYC- welcome! So glad you found this site. How nice to stumble upon that church at your time of need. I like to go to my church and just sit and pray. I will pray for you and all of us.
Hi feelingfeline- so glad she made it out of surgery will continue to pray for her.

I am so glad to have found this discussion group for Catholics. I am now 9 months post diagnosis of triple positive bc. The hospital where I had my surgery and chemo has a beautiful Catholic chapel where I found such solace throughout this ordeal. Were it not for the grace and strength I received through prayer (my own and others' prayers), I would have been a basket case. The fear in the beginning was paralyzing! I am happy to say that fear has taken a hike! Praise God! While I pray for total healing, I trust God will bring some good out of our suffering (offered up) for us and others. God bless you all!

Thank you for your welcome post, FeelingFeline.
I have been reading through many of the posts on this Catholic thread! There is such great faith expressed here by members no matter what their stage or treatment outcomes! This is so refreshing compared to a Canadian forum of which I am also a member (different screen name).
Thank you, everyone. Wishing you all continued strength and blessings.

I was diagnosed with triple positive BC, too. It's definitely a marathon, not a sprint. I feel as though my relationship with God has grown closer and stronger since diagnosis. I feel very blessed to have been given the gift of consolation, that feeling of calm peace that comes over me despite the many challenges that have come from diagnosis. Hope you are blessed as well!

Update on BC.org member's daughter. Continuing on life support but responding to commands to move eyes, squeeze hands etc so clearly present and responding to her family and medical team. Her Mom says: please keep up the good work. No prayer is ever wasted. XXX

FeelingFeline, thank you for the update. I will be praying for BC.org member's dear daughter.
ElaineTherese, yes, I find it hard to read of other members' suffering and fear without their sensing God's presence and consolation through it all. It's beyond words, and I feel helpless to offer any relief to them other than prayers. I'd like to be able to share His great consolation with them. If only they'd beg Him, what a gift they would receive.
