O Great St Roch
O Great St. Roch,
deliver us, we beseech you,
from the scourges of God.
Through thy intercession,
preserve our bodies from contagious diseases,
and our souls from the contagion of sin.
Obtain for us a clean/healthy environment;
but, above all, purity of heart.
Assist us to make good use of our abilities,
to bear suffering with patience;
and, following thy example,
to live in the practice of penance and charity,
that we may one day enjoy the happiness
which you merited by your virtues.

Petition For A Sick Person
Dear Pilgrim St Roch,
you once took care of sufferers of the plague and were always ready to help others by your kind service and fervent prayers.
You had no home and you died in a dungeon, in prison.
No wonder countless sick people confidently invoked your help!
St Roch, please seek a cure for (Person’s Name… ) but may God’s will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
St Roch, help all those whom I pray for to become spiritually healthy. Amen.
