Prayers of Devotion to Saint Rocco

Devotional Prayer List

Dear mendicant pilgrim, you once took care of sufferers from the plague and were always ready to help others by kind service and fervent prayers.  You yourself had no home and you died in a dungeon.  No wonder countless invalids have confidently invoked your help. 

Please grant a cure to (mention the name of the sufferer), and help us all become spiritually healthy.  Amen.


O great St. Rocco, deliver us, we beseech thee, from the scourges of God; through thy intercession, preserve our bodies from contagious diseases, and our souls from the contagion of sin.

Obtain for us salubrious air; but, above all, purity of heart.

Assist us to make good use of health, to bear sufferings with patience; and, after they example, to live in the practice of penance and charity, that we may one day enjoy the happiness which thou has merited by thy virtues.

St. Rocco, pray for us (repeat three times).
