Bear's cousin Stew will be undergoing surgery for a bowel resection due to cancerous polyps. Your prayers for him and his family would be greatly appreciated:

In case you are wondering St. Peregine is the Patron of victims of Cancer.

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called
"The Mighty", "The Wonder-Worker",
because of the numerous miracles which
you have obtained from God
for those who have had recourse to you.
For so many years you bore in
your own flesh this cancerous disease
that destroys the very fiber of our being,
and who had recourse to the source of all grace
when the power of man could do no more.
You were favored with the vision of Jesus
coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction.
Ask of God and Our Lady,
the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you:
(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying.)
Aided in this way by your powerful intercession
we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity,
a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.
