San Peregrin Retablo
Patron of Cancer Patients, AIDS Patients; Invoked against Illness
Peregrin was born to a wealthy family in the 1200's and he became a political activist. He was anti-papal GUELPHS and in favor of the Imperials. When a papal legate came to town, Peregrine punched him in the nose. The man turned the other cheek. Peregrine was overcome by this gesture. He ended up joining the servite order. In penance for his past, he did not sit down for 30 years. He had a reputation of being a good confessor and great preacher. Later in his life he developed foot cancer. The night before they were to amputate his foot, he prayed that Christ would come down off the cross and heal his foot.
