For a Priest who was diagnosed with a brain tumour

Father John Hollowell, a highly respected Catholic priest from Indianapolis (whom I am sure is familiar to members of this forum) has announced that he has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Please keep him in your prayers, especially as he is going for surgery in March.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal (John Hollowell). You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into John Hollowell’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Prayer to St. Anthony for Those With Cancer

Dear St. Anthony, you recognized Our Lord Jesus as the Divine Healer. In your goodness and kindness, please intercede for John Hollowell who is suffering from cancer. If it is God’s will, may the gift of healing be granted to him. Comfort him during times of unbearable pain, and ask our Lord to grant him peace and patience in suffering. May God give him the fullness of life here on earth. Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

which is love and Mercy itself.

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty”, “The Wonder Worker” because

of the numerous miracles which you obtained from God for those who have turned to you in

their need. For so many years, you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys

the very fiber of our being.

You turned to God when the power of human beings could do no more, and you were favored

with the vision of Jesus coming down from His cross to heal your affliction. I now ask God to

heal these sick persons whom I entrust to you; Father John Hollowell

Aided by your powerful intercession, I shall sing with Mary a hymn of gratitude

to God for His great goodness and mercy.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
