List of Prayers to the Saints
Great Saint Roch, we beseech you, deliver us from the scourges of God.
Through your intercession, preserve our bodies from contagious
diseases and our souls from the contagion of sin.
Obtain for us the purest of air to breath;
but above all, purity of heart.
Assist us to make good use of health,
to bear sufferings with patience; and,
after thy example, to live in the practice of penance
and charity that we may enjoy the happiness
which you have merited by your virtues.
Saint Roch, pray for us.
