Prayer to Our Lady of Tumours (Santa Maria dei Tumori)

Santa Maria dei Tumori, Santa Maria Maggiore, Ravenna, Italy

Holy Mary, Mother of God, Health of the sick, intercede for us. By His death and resurrection your Son opened for us the doors to His grace, the source of health of soul and body. We trust in your intercession with Him. We ask for your loving protection against all cancers, tumours, cysts and growths. We pray not only for ourselves but for all who suffer from these illnesses. May they find in you a most tender Mother who brings health and consolation. Holy Mary of tumours pray for us. At the Cross you offered your sufferings with patience; teach us to unite our suffering to yours and like you to offer it to your Son Jesus who is our only Saviour. Amen
