Saint Roch
Prayer to St. Roch (patron of contagious illnesses)

O Blessed Saint Roch, patron of the sick, have pity on those who lie upon a bed of suffering.
Your power was so great when you were in this world, that by the sign of the Cross, many were healed of their diseases.

Now that you are in heaven, your power is not less. Offer, then, to God our sighs and tears and obtain for us that health we seek through Christ our Lord.


(Repeat the following 3 times)
Saint Roch, pray for us, that we may be preserved from all diseases of body and soul.
