Prayer To St Roch For Healing

Saint Roch is especially known for the care of plague victims. He was born at Montpellier in the south of France during an epidemic of plague, which had already carried off so many victims. His parents were nobles and wealthy land owners, who expected him to be someone great when he grew up. But from a young age he was drawn to God and consecrated himself entirely to Him before his birth.

This prayer to St Roch for healing may be said as a novena (9 days straight) or a one-day healing prayer. St Roch’s intercession is often sought in order to help protect against disease. Not all prayers work and it is difficult to know who will be answered and how often.

Saint Roch is the patron saint of dogs and he is one dog’s best friend. His full name was “Saint Roch of Montpellier”. Saint Roch is depicted on his knees in the middle of a noose trying to reach his companion dog who is tied up just out of reach. This prayer to St Roch serves as a reminder to us that when we pray to him, we should never give up hope.

In the later part of the thirteenth century, there was a priest who was known as a healer. He performed many healings through his intercession and devotion to God.

O most merciful God

Who through an angel promised St. Roch

That whoever should invoke his name

Would be preserved from pestilence

And contagious diseases.

Grant that through his intercession we

May be preserved from all dangers,

Both of soul and body

Through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Your power was so great when you were in this world, that by the sign of the Cross, many were healed of their diseases.
