Michael of the Saints
Michael Argemir was born in Spain on September 29, 1591.
He became a Trinitarian friar in 1607, and took the name of Michael of the Saints. His brief life of thirty-three years was one of great love for Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. His generous service
to the poor, the unfortunate and the sick made him a compassionate priest and a faithful friend.
His ministry didn't end with his death. After eleven days of prayer, Frances Sanz was cured through
his intercession. The cancerous tumors on her lip and tongue disappeared. No scars were left. Hers was one of many such cures and was presented as one of the miracles when Pius IX canonized
Michael on June 8, 1862.
We hope you will join us in our prayers to God to find a cure for cancer through the intercession of Saint Michael of The Saints.
We praise you, Most Holy Trinity, for having sent us Saint Michael of the Saints, to be our friend
and intercessor in the fight against cancer.
Grant us, we pray, a humble faith that we may follow in his holy footsteps and believe without doubt
in your generous gift of healing.
With humble and childlike trust, we ask your Divine help through Saint Michael of the Saints in this urgent necessity.
May this gift of bodily health bring us peace and joy which are but a foretaste of heaven, and may
we be counted one day among your saints in glory.
Father, your world is ill with cancer and frightened. We pray you ease the suffering of those afflicted, give loving hands to those who care for them, and light the way for those who seek its cure.
Merciful Father, extend your healing hand so that we may soon cry out, A cure at last!
In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
The Trinitarians, white-robed with a red and blue cross on the breast, were founded in 1198 to
rescue slaves. Today, as perish priests, teachers and chaplains, they work with alcoholics, addicts,
the retarded, the aged, the lonely, the deaf, and other prisoners of modern society. Their special effort is to unite all people in one voice of prayer that a cure for cancer may be found.
