I received a message on Facebook stating that Father Peter Mary Rookey, who is a special healing priest Died this morning, September 10, He was going to be 98 years old. He had a special healing ministry and always said when asked about it, “it is God’s work, not mine”.
May he rest in the Lord’s peace!
I have been to two Masses that he celebrated, and he was so devoted to the Holy Eucharist and our Blessed Mother.

*Eternal rest grant unto Father Peter Mary Rookey, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen
Amazing human being. Not enough words to describe his compassion through the Holy Spirit.
God bless him and may he rest in peace.
Father Peter Mary Rookey wrote this prayer. I carry a copy in my Magnificat.
The Miracle Prayer
Lord Jesus, I come before you, just as I am, I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your Name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever. I invite you into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord, God and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit.
Come Lord Jesus, cover me with your Precious Blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I love you Lord Jesus. I praise you Jesus. I thank you Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen.
Mary, My Mother, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all the Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.
