Doctor José Gregorio Hernández’s prayers for healing
Venezuelan Catholics venerate Hernández for his works and his example of Christian behavior, asking him for favors and attributing miracles to him.
The process of beatification and canonization was initiated by the Venezuelan Catholic Church in 1949 before the Vatican under the direction of Monsignor Lucas Guillermo Castillo, Archbishop of Caracas.
Dr. José Gregorio Hernández was designated “venerable” by Pope John Paul II on January 16, 1986, after beginning the procedure and finalizing the first cases. This was the first step towards his beatification.
If all goes according to plan, he would become Venezuela’s first saint.

Lord, my almighty God.
Lord, grant Jose Gregorio the grace to heal me as a spiritual doctor of my soul and body if it is for your glory. You have greatly blessed José Gregorio and in your great mercy, you have given him the ability to treat the sick and assist the needy.
In place of your beloved Son, who gave us these sublime lessons, I beseech you, Lord: “Whatever you ask you can get. Everyone who asks gets it. But do it with faith. For those who have faith, everything is possible. In my name, you can ask the Father for anything and he will give it to you”.
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who taught us to pray, grant us these mercies.
(Recite the Our Father) Our Father.
