Prayer is an essential tool for healing and is an excellent source of comfort, courage and strength for those who are suffering. During times of illness, disease or a life challenge, nothing is more important than to offer prayer and to join with others in assurance of these prayers.
In addition to prayer, the Saints protect us against harm, help strengthen our faith and offer spiritual guidance and healing. They are our models of prayer and their intercession helps present powerful prayers of healing to God on our behalf.

Saint Servatius was born in Armenia during the fourth century and was said to be a distant relative to Our Savior and to Saint John the Baptist.
Servatius became a priest and guardian of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. While in Jerusalem, he had a vision in which he was ordered to go to Tongres to succeed Bishop Valentine. Servatius had been bishop of Tongres for several years when the Huns threatened to invade the city. In 382, as a refuge, Servatius took a pilgrimage to Rome where he had another vision. Saint Peter told him that Tongres would be destroyed and to move his see to Maastricht. Peter also handed Servatius the key to the Gates of Heaven, which gave him the power to forgive sins, and to open or lock the Gates.
No more than a few days after his relocation to Maastricht, Servatius fell ill with fever from an infection in his leg. He died on May 13, 384.
Saint Servatius is recognized today as the patron of those who suffer with foot or leg ailments.
His feast day is May 13th.
Saint Servatius, Pray for Us.
