    St. Apollonia, sweet saint, I'm still appalled by the terrible and cruel torture you underwent for the love of Christ. It is a testament and witnessing that I admire so much. Dear saint, please ease my mother's pain and discomfort, sorrow and suffering, all of which she is so keenly aware. Intercede for her today on your feastday, that she may have a peaceful day. Keep her safe and sound. Amen

Please heal everyone's hurt and soften their hearts towards one another so we can work together to help our patients. Also help me to be kind to my fellow employees and to our patients.

    Dear Saint Applonia
    I pray that with your intercession with god you can heal my tooth and gums. Please help my wisdom tooth grown in normally. i can not pull it because the root is running through my nerve. It is putting srain on the tooth next to it. Please make it grow in straight. Please also heal any ailments my other teeth maybe be suffering from. I have already lost a tooth and can not afford to loose anymore. Please help alleviate the stress i face daily regarding me teeth. they bring me such anxiety - please allow me to relax. I put my faith in you and Jesus Christ.

    I thank you in advance for your help xoxo In jesus name amen

    I pray to you St. Appollonia for my granddaughter Mary Elizabeth who is 6 years old and was
    born with Lyphamtic Malformation in her neck, face mouth and throat.
    She has had over 30 surgeries and procedures and still is not finished. Actually she is having a MRI today to see what is next. She had a feeding tube and a trache since she was born which were recently removed. Her parents are wonderful with her and her care. She lost her baby teeth too early and her permanment. She is already have problems with them. She was recently seen by her dentist who is a specialist for this condition. Its look like she going to lose a permanent moler and she also said her two front teeth are very soft also. She does not produce saliva like we do. Please intercede for her and her teeth get strong and that she does not lose them or she will be looking at implants or dentures. This little girl has gone thru so much. She is a beauty and a stroing little girl. Thank you.
