Saint Roch Prayer for Dogs and Healing

Saint Roch is a catholic saint with incredible power in defeating plagues: he is the patron saint of dogs and those suffering from ill health or ailments. These prayer to St. Roch will be sure to offer protection against plagues and ill health, and protect your dog so your dog may protect you.

Upon his pilgrimage to Europe, St. Roch was saddened by how many were being struck down by the black plague. He then put himself at great risk by visiting those were ill and performing healing prayers for them.

St. Roch cured many miraculously just by making the sign of the cross, and at the time despite visiting hundreds of victims he never once suffered from the highly infection disease himself.

It was only on his final visit to Piacenza he caught the plague in his leg. St. Roch did not want to trouble anybody with his illness so walked into the wild and waited for his death in an abandoned hut.

A local farmers Dog found St Roch and licked his wounds, a well of water appeared nearby and he was slowly healed.

This is why the St. Roch prayer is incredibly powerful for healing, and why we also pray for him for our dogs.

Now you know a bit of St Roch, lets take a look at some prayers to call for Saint Roch’s intercession.

St. Roch Healing Prayers

O blessed Saint Roch, Patron of the sick, Have pity on those who lie upon a bed of suffering. Your power was so great when you were in this world, that by the sign of the Cross, many were healed of their diseases.
Now that you are in heaven, your power is no less. Offer to God our sighs and tears and obtain for us the physical and spiritual health we seek:

This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O most merciful god, Who through an angel promised St Roch that whoever should invoke his name, would be preserved from pestilence and contagious diseases.
Grant that through his intercession we may be preserved from all dangers. Both of soul and body.

Through christ our lord. Amen

Many of us have reached a point in our lives that feels like it’s too much to handle. We all remember the joy we felt when we first encountered God, but sometimes we still miss the small joys of our daily lives.

Prayer for my Dog

St. Roch is also the patron saint for dogs, due to the miracle that happened when he was licked a dog while recovering from the plague.

He is a specially powerful saint for healing sick dogs, or those about to undergo surgery.

Can I pray for my dog? What does the Bible say about pets?

Dogs are sometimes negatively portrayed in the Bible. For instance, on Matthew 7:6:

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

Similarly, on Philippians 3:2:

Watch out for those dogs, those evildoers, those mutilators of the flesh.

However, this should not be taken to mean that God does not favour dogs. After all, we also have Proverbs 12:10:

The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.

We have a duty to care for our pets and to treat them well. To do otherwise is an act of wickedness against God’s creation.

Therefore, it is also appropriate to pray for our dogs. As the patron saint of dogs, Saint Roch is a powerful force to intercede in their favor. This is specially true for a sick dog, since as previously mentioned he is also a strong saint for healing. Here is a great prayer to say for our dogs.

Which saint do I pray to for my cats?

While praying to St. Roch is sure to help in many ways, if you’re specifically worried about a sick or lost cat, you should consider praying to the patron saint of cats. On this website you can find a powerful prayer to St. Gertrude of Nivelle for cats.

  4. St. Roch,
    I ask for your intercession in the healing of my dog Zeus. He was recently diagnosed with Aspergillosis and is in a great deal of pain and suffering. The type of Aspergillosis he has is incurable. While he is still somewhat mobile, only getting up to sometimes eat and potty, he is for the most part, strictly bed ridden. I will be taking him to see his veterinarian again tomorrow, 7/18/2022, to discuss his quality of life and to ultimately make the decision to have him humanely euthanized. It hurts me and tears me up so bad to even put that in writing, much les come to the decision. I just can not continue to see him suffering so much. He is on pain medications and an anti fungal medication for Aspergillosis, but this is only prolonging the inevitable. It hurts so much! I ask for a miracle of complete healing from this deadly disease that is attacking his whole body.
    These things I ask through Christ Our Lord, Amen!
