Bob and Penny Lord photoSaint Roch has many titles: Miracle Worker - Patron Saint of Cholera, Plague, epidemics, dogs, dog lovers, pilgrims, bachelors, surgeons and grave diggers, among others.

Family, the Lord works in powerful ways.

What a time for St. Roch to come back into our lives than now, when the world is in the midst of an epidemic, the Swine Flu.

Saint Roch is the patron saint of plagues and epidemics, among other things.

We were first introduced to Saint Roch in Assisi, at the Convent of San Damiano. There is a painting of St. Roch and the dog. In Italy, he is called Santo Rocco. St. Rocco is very important to the Italian people, actually to all Europeans as well.

We researched him, and found that he is a powerful intercessor for many things, as you can see above. We began to pray for his intercession for friends and relatives who had various diseases, like the Flu, Asthma, respiratory illnesses, and the like. He always came through for us. But as time went on, and more and more Saints became part of our lives, St. Roch was put on the back burner.

We stopped praying for his help. Even two years ago, when the aviary flu struck, and then again last year, when the Swine flu epidemic began, we didn't think to pray for the intercession of St. Roch.

But this last weekend, we held our Annual Holy Family Conference, here at our Mission in Morrilton, Arkansas. Lo and behold, one of our benefactors brought a life-sized statue of Saint Roch, and placed him smack in the middle of the Conference Center.

Everyone had to pass the statue to get to their seats. Naturally, they wanted to know who he was and what he was about.

They wanted to know the history of St Roch, and so we went back to our vast archives of reference materials, which we have accumulated over 30 years of researching the Saints, and told them the story of St. Roch.

Everybody immediately suggested we pray for the intercession of St. Roch for our present epidemic, Swine Flu. And so we did, the whole three days of the conference, and we are continuing to pray, and we recommend you do as well. In case you didn't know, we have a great deal of faith in the intercession of the Saints for various needs. But I'm sure that having read our books and seen our television programs, you do know. We have been given great power through the intercession of our Saints, like St. Anthony, St. Therese, St. Joseph of Cupertino, St. Peregrine and on and on. You pray; they deliver.

Believe it or not, for those of you who have never heard of Saint Roch, or only know him as a name we give to our Italian or French children, he is an extremely powerful intercessor.

His miracles have saved entire cities from plague and cholera. He is responsible for many miracles and cures during his lifetime, but he is responsible for even more since his death.
