St. Roch Comments

Untrustworthy sources say he was probably born at Montpellier, France, son of the governor there. He was orphaned when he was twenty. He went on pilgrimage to Rome and devoted himself to caring for the victims of a plague that was ravaging Italy. He became a victim himself at Piacenza but recovered and was reputed to have performed many miracles of healing. On his return to Montpellier, he was imprisoned for five years as a spy in pilgrim's ... Continue Reading

    Please, St. Roch, intercede for my husband, Ron, so that he will soon be healed from a torn meniscus in his knee. It is very painful, and we are having difficulty getting timely medical help. My husband suffers from combat ptsd, due to his time as an infantry soldier in Vietnam. This inactivity due to an extremely painful knee is very hard on his mental health because he is usually very active, which is good therapy for his ptsd.
    I also ask that I will be patient and loving throughout this ordeal. Help the doctors treat him properly.
    Thank you Jesus, and also St. Roch

    St. Roch,

    I am asking for your help in finding a good home for my sister's dog, Cagney. She passed away and he really misses her. He is a very sweet and loving companion and needs someone who can give him a lot of love and attention. Thank you for your help in finding him a new home.

    St. Roch, I humbly ask for intercessory prayer to our Lord Jesus Christ for healing of a horrible illness and affliction which is not common to the medical community ( plague). I am in need of a miracle and very depressed. I pray for healing as I have three beautiful children I desire to be here for and my heart is broken with this illness. I suffer from fear and anxiety and unbearable emotional pain due to this illness along with the physical illness itself that has rendered me helpless. I feel alone. Please also pray for my children for any pain that their mother having this illness brings to their lives. Pray for them. Please ask our Lord to heal me through His miracle working powers as well as others if possible suffering from this very same illness if that is His will. I ask these things in the name of Jesus. Amen
