Reviewed by Gordon Nary



As a cancer survivor of 12 years of treatment, I have read many books on cancer, many of them medical texts, I have never found book so inspirational\ that influenced my life more than Jesus the Healer: St. Peregrine. OSM, the Helper Although it was written primarily for caregivers with sections of Healing through Pain, Healing through Generosity and Faith, Healing through Love and Goodness, Healing though Peace and Patience, and Healing though Kindness. However, it is very applicable to cancer patients.


The most important feature of this book is the collection of letters to Father Chris from people of al ages, Some of them from children made me cry – the first time that I have every cried reading a book.


Father Chris also has a novena to St. Peregrine which I strongly recommend to all who have cancer. If possible visit a St. Peregrine shrine. They are international, and many are in Servite Churches, Also consider joining Friends of St. Peregrine Cancer Ministry


This book is a national treasure and should be given io every person with cancer and their caregivers globally.. There is no better way of following God’s command to love our neighbor as ourselves than to give one of these books as a gift. Father Chris is a national treasure and Jesus the Healer: St. Peregrine. OSM, the Helper is an interaction treasure
