Scripture:

Psalm 34:4

“I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.”

St. Roch, also known as Saint Rocco, is revered as the patron saint invoked against skin diseases, plague, and other contagious illnesses. Born in the 14th century in Montpellier, France, he came from a noble family. After the untimely death of his parents, he distributed his wealth among the poor and embarked on a pilgrimage to Rome.

During his travels, St. Roch encountered towns devastated by the plague. Moved by compassion, he tended to the sick, miraculously healing many with his prayers and the sign of the cross. Despite his efforts, he eventually contracted the disease himself. Seeking solitude, he withdrew to a forest, where legend has it that a dog brought him food and licked his wounds, aiding in his recovery.

St. Roch’s iconography often depicts him revealing his plague sores on his thigh, emphasizing his role as a healer and his miraculous cure. Historically, he is also portrayed with a dog by his side, symbolizing the loyal companion who sustained him during his isolation.

In later years, St. Roch returned to his hometown, but he mistaken for a spy and imprisoned. He accepted his suffering with patience and continued to trust in God. Eventually, a miraculous cross appeared in his cell, leading to his release and vindication.

St. Roch’s life exemplifies selflessness, compassion, and faith in the face of adversity. His intercession sought by those afflicted with skin diseases, plague, and epidemics. He remains a symbol of hope and healing, revered by many around the world for his miraculous interventions and steadfast devotion to those in need.
