Fr. Peter Mary Rookey-The Healing Priest.



Fr. Peter Mary Rookey
Probably one of the most well-known priests of the Servite order is Fr. Peter Mary Rookey. Although a number of interesting books have been written about Fr. Rookey and his charism of healing, when asked about his gift, Father simply says, “It is God’s work, not mine - He does all the healing, I just pray.”
In 1948, after having been healed miraculously from blindness, Fr. Peter Mary Rookey formed the Servite Order in Ireland. Father has traveled the world using his charism, including many trips to Medjugorje. Although Father does not travel as much now, in 2006 at the age of 90, Fr. Rookey made a pilgrimage to Medjugorje.

In Medjugorje, Father was asked to bless a young boy in a wheelchair, and after having blessed the young boy, Father ordered the boy to stand up. The boy stood up and walked to Fr. Rookey and fell sobbing with joy into his arms!
Perhaps one of the most well known healings through Fr. Rookey was the physical and spiritual healing of David Parkes.

 You can send a prayer request to him via Fr. Peter Mary Rookey, O.S.M.
3121 West Jackson Blvd
Chicago, IL 60612

He receives calls from Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM (Central Time) at 773-638-0159 ext. 102.

Fr. Rookey shares what he calls a Miracle Prayer and tells us that if we mean each word fully with all of our heart, that we will experience something spiritually good.

THE MIRACLE PRAYER>>>
Lord Jesus, l come before You, just as I am. I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In Your name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. l give You my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever. I invite You into my life, Jesus. I accept You as my Lord, God and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul and spirit.
Come Lord Jesus, cover me with Your precious blood, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. I love You, Lord Jesus. I praise You, Jesus. I thank You, Jesus. I shall follow You every day of my life. Amen.
Mary my mother, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all you angels and Saints please help me. Amen.

Say this prayer faithfully, no matter how you feel. When you come to the point where you sincerely mean each word, with all your heart, something good spiritually will happen to you. You will experience Jesus, and He will change your whole life in a very special way. You will see. Medjugorje Spirit

I attended a conference in Peoria, IL several years ago and Fr. Rookey was there. I remember him well. He prayed over me and annointed me with oil which smelled like roses to me and a few others. However, the oil was not rose scented. Some present interpreted this to mean that the Blessed Virgin Mary was present. He is truly a gifted and holy man.

Ed said...

Thank You Jean for your comment. It is true that Fr. Rookey is truly a gifted and holy man. I have met him 3 times in the last 10 years. The first time was at Saint Rita's Church in Warwick, Rhode Island where he held a Healing Service. The other two times were in Medjugorje.He also laid hands and prayed over me.
At the healing service at Saint Rita's Church, there was a man who was cripple in a wheel chair. Fr Rookey prayed over him and the man got out of his wheel chair and walked. Our Lord works miracles through Fr. Rookey.
Jean, did you know that before Fr. Rookey startes his healing services he is in prayer for 4 to 5hours before he prays over anyone.
God Bless,

How can you find out where his next healing mass will be at?

Being 92 years old, he does
not travel anymore. He does
take phone calls (5 hours a
day, Mon. thru Fri.) if you
want him to pray for you over
the phone. The phone number
is 708-748-MARY. He is truly
holy and I can attest that he
does have the gift of healing.

hi, what are the hours to call Father Peter on Mon to Fri? What time zone is that?

Thanks and God bless.

Anonymous said...

Fr. Rookey is my uncle and visits with us several times each year. Everyone in our family considers him to be a living saint. He takes phone calls at his office each weekday from about 10 AM central time until his noon Mass and from 1until 3 PM when he and his staff pray the Divine Mercy. He may answer calls after that for an hour or two more and even keeps office hours on some Saturdays. May God bless all of you who seek His loving assistance through my holy uncle!

Dear Ed, I would like to thank you for this opportunity to maybe get in touch with Fr. Rookey. I have just read Heather Parson's book on this special priest and I would very much like to speak with him. I am from England and therefore need some kind soul to translate the number as in England we don't have the alphabet on our phones therefore the latter part of the number displayed on this site i.e. MARY is meaningless. It would mean a lot to me if I could speak to Fr. Rookey as I have been unwell for some time and believe that the Lord works through this humble humorous priest portrayed in Heather Parson's book and I am desperate for the love of the Lord. If by any chance Tim reads this comment please help me get in touch with your uncle. I need his prayers and his unwaivering faith to help me with a crippling depression. Anyone who can help me will be doing me a great service and I thank them in advance.May God bless you all. Thank you.

I met Fr. Rookey before my Surgery in April 2008. I spent about 3 hours with him at his house.
He took me to his private chapel in his basement and with another close friend, he prayed over me.
I was scheduled for Breast Cancer surgery to remove a 5cm mass tumor. What a blessing to meet him.
I am cancer free after surgery, Praise God!
Can someone contact me about his trip to the Gospa Prayer house.
Is he really going to be there on Saturday and Sunday..I live nearby and I would love to see him again!

Dear Father,
I am writing to request prayers for my sister in law Rosemary who has lost most of her sight. She started to loose her sight about 6 years ago and Doctors determined her immune system is attacking her vision and they are unable to help her. Please pray that the Lord might restore her sight. God Bless you and thank you in advance for your prayers.

Fr. Rookey, God`s gifted man, please pray for my family, that they all stay united in prayer & love and may God blessthem with good health & life. Secondly, please pray for my uncle who has become partially paralised because of the suicide attempt, that God forgives him & make him allright & that he may return to the service in Church which he did before falling sick. Also I ask you to pray for my 2 friends & myself (trying to concieve since 8 years of marriage), that may God in his loving mercy bless us with children, as per his will & grace.
Please pray that we may never loose hope in God & our holy Mother & seek the fruits of placing our trust in them.

liz said...

Dear Father. Thank you for your faithfulness to our Lord and Blessed Mother. May I ask for your prayers and intercession for my health. I have been hospitalized in and out for over six months and am in a state of fatigue unable to move forward in my own ministry of counseling. I can barely walk around the house and need to provide for myself. I also fear for my 36 y/o son who smokes incessantly and eats dangerously. my deepest desire is that he find a true relationship with the Lord and a life partner who is Catholic. I sometimes feel I am at the end but I do believe in God's healing grace and know He has more plans for me.. Thank you for reading this note and please pray. liz in cozumel, mexico

Father Please Pray for my brother David. He has a depression and drug addiction, and lost his faith. Everyday he talks about how he hates life, wants to die. And has no motivation to do anything. It breaks my heart. He needs spiritual healing. Please Father pray for him that he may enjoy the wonderful gift of life and the blessings Lord gave us. I really wish he could find himself and believe he has a purpose. I do not want to lose him. Thank you.

Dear Father,

My name is Juanita and I fell as though I keep having to overcome obstacles by myself. The challenges I have had seem never ending and I would really like your support in prayer. Today I went on you-tube and searched prayer and you came up. I recited the prayer with you and I immediately felt better. Please pray for my overall well-being, I know this slump is not permanent.

I would also like you to pray for my Veronica cousin who I just found out has been declared legally blind. And my friend father Mr. Mcguire, we would like him around for as long as possible.

Thank you Ed for this prayer line.

This is a long overdue message of thanks to Fr. Rookey. Sept. 22, 2006 I was diagnosed with stageIV Lymphoma. I was at a healing Mass in Bolingbrook, Illinois at which Fr.Rookey was present. After the Mass I was brought up to Fr. Roookey who prayed over me. It is now almost five years that I have been cancer free. Thank you Fr. Rookey!

Kantarawa said...

My name is Kantarawa and I write from Kiribati. Fr, before I say more I would like to thank God for giving me this opportunity to connect me with you. Thank you Lord.
Fr. I am very happy to talk to you eventhough we lived apart it like I am next to you because of God's love.
Fr I have a son who is blind since 2009 to date. He is 18 years old now and he became blind when he is 17 years old. One of his eye is hopeless according to the doctor's report and his other eye has been treated in New Zealand twice. The silicone oil is put in his eye and he will return to New Zealand for removing it but still now no news of his treatment received from the hosipital. We usually attend mass everyday and yesterday after mass one of my friend tells me about you. She gave me your address and that is why I thank God for bringing you to me. Please Fr bless my son and pray for him also to follow in your steps to become what God's want from him. Thank you Fr.

Nina said...

Dear Fr, Rookey, I was referred to you by "Joseph in California". Please pray for my family: for my brother, Tom, to return to the Catholic Church after being a member of a protestant church for many years; for my husband, Alex, that he have true spiritual peace, for my brother-in-law, Sam, that he be healed from a severe heart block from which he refuses to seek medical care, and for me, that I be healed from the cerebral stenosis which has resulted in me having had transient ischemic attacks. I also request prayers for everyone in my music ministry group that we all continue to work for God's glory alone and for our priests that they continue to be strong in their vocations. Yours in Christ.

Rob said...

I heard about Fr. Rooney some years ago and am disappointed that I have never been able to meet him. I tried to contact him today, however, all the mailboxes are full. My family and I are undergoing a really tough period in our lives and we need prayer or at least to speak to him, if only for a moment cos I know that at least he cares. In the meantime I will keep trying and perhaps I will be able to reach him someday.

SpasticTurnip said...

Dearest and Blessed Fr.Rookey, I am seeking your Prayers and Spiritual Guidance in banishing negative beings/spirits from my home .I was given several years ago a Prayer. Freedom from Curses. I was told this was a Prayer you sent to a lady in Rathmines Dublin,Ireland to remove the presence of a shadowed man from her home...I have done this Holy Prayer on many occasions but HE and others still come to my daughter and I.. We can actually feel them on us at night in bed, sometimes we feel their breath and hands covering our face and neck, also a very bad smell of fishy bleach, I have some protection of Jesus as we call out to Him to save us, and My Beloved St.Michael and ALL The Blessed Angels and Saints but they still come..I had them when I was a child, but since I had my daughter,they come more often..I am 45yrs,my daughter 21yrs.I even had my home Blessed..I told my uncle Fr. Dominic Hession a Fransiscan in Africa about this and even he prayed to no avail.He too is an Exorcist who said there are beings in my home around me but not evil???? I think they sense when a Priest is comming so they do not...Help us Please, I sometimes feel we belong to them even though we are Catholic and believe in the Holy Trinity etc,and Pray for protection daily...Sincerly Patricia and Amanda Hession Dublin 5 Ireland

Miriam said...

Dearest Father Rookey please pray for the chronic and now severe depression I have to be alieviated through Jesus Our Lord. I battle suicidal thoughts every day, even though I have been under the care of a psychiatrist and take medication. I've tried most anti-depressants, and I've gone through 15 years of therapy. I'm 56 and I've had depression to some degree since I was 25. Only God can help me. I pray several hours a day for others but my prayers to have the depression lifted haven't been answered. I know how tired you must be, sorry for adding to your prayer burden. I go to Mass, although only once a week. The depression is keeping me from going outdoors. I'm trying hard, but I need more help. I give my suffering to Jesus in atonement for all my sins. I'm so tired of fighting this illness. Please pray for the suicidal thoughts to be removed. God Bless You Father for all you do for people! Pamela

cmr said...

Fr. Rookey,
I am sorry for all my sins. I beg you to help me in this time of great crisis in my life. I want to call you but I am afraid.... I have not been a good Catholic concerning attending mass or going to confession. I pray the rosary and just found your prayer again.. help me in this time of need. May God and you hear my prayers at this time

bo said...

Dear Rev Father Rookey
May I please request your prayers.Apparently, I have a very rare type of

Thank you for your time and may God Bless you. March 26,2013

Donald Gill said...

Dear Father, I am asking for prayers for our friend Nella. She is pregnant with her fifth child and has limphoma. She is very devoted to her family and her Catholic faith. Her surgery is scheduled next and she is more concerned for her children than for herself. We have a bunch of prayer warriors praying for her and ask for the intercession of Gianna Molla.
Yours in Jeus

janners said...

Fr. Rookey: I pray that you asked Jesus to show my son Daniel not to give up on his marriage, not to walk out on the vows that he took, to give it one more chance. I believe he is confusing respect and love, please pray that he sees what he has and can have before it's too late, he is a good man he needs God in his life. thank you Father Rookey

Song said...

I'm asking for prayers of reconciliation for myself and the love of my life. she is my best friend and I hope one day for her to be my wife. But recently we had been arguing and it scared her and she left. I know this seems silly but she was the one person who loved me and I love her. Please bring us back together again, let our foundation be strong and loving please let me get the apartment that I recently applied for. I want to create a home for my family including her. I love her and I want her in my life forever.
Thank you

Eunice Serrano said...

Dear Father Peter, 2013 was a really tough year for me. I went through a lot of emotional stress. Last December the doctor diagnosed me with having Vitiligo (as it appears on my neck and at the back). I have just recovered from the last year's stress and now this condition came up and it is affecting me emotionally and mentally. I am 35 years old and I'm want to live my life to the fullest and serve God in ways I can, but this condition is affecting me and my esteem. I pray and I have faith in God too but I would be happy to have people praying with me as well. Please help me pray to our God that he will heal and restore me. Thank you and God bless you!

Could anyone tell me please how can I get in touch with Fr. Rookey? a phone number, an email address, or a regular mail address, please. Is he still having healing services?
I am asking this for my 2 years old daughter who was born with some problems on her left eye.
I am hoping that through his prayers her eye will get fixed and we will avoid a surgery.
Thank you,
Cristina

Dear Fr. Rookey, my dear wife MaryAnn was diagnosed with stage 3Ovarian Cancer five years ago at age 46. Through the Grace of Lord Jesus Christ, and the intercession of ST. Pio, and ST. Peregrine, although very difficult, MaryAnn's surgery and chemo treatments were successful. Now MaryAnn is faced with the knowledge that she has the BRCA2 gene mutation which gave her the OV cancer and places her at a high risk for breast cancer. While MaryAnn does not have cancer now, MaryAnn is faced with having to make a decision on whether or not to have her breasts removed pro-activity or risk having cancer something again in her life. Father, for the past five years I've said your Miracle Prayer each time MaryAnn would go for her dr. visits or CAT scans. Please Father, MaryAnn is frail and week at 86 lbs., please pray for her and ask our Lord to send an army of Angels and Saints led by St. Pio and ST. Peregrine down from Heaven to be by her side when she meets with her specialist next week for their opinion. I pray that the Holy Spirit guides MaryAnn on making her decision. In Jesus’ name I ask the Holy Father for another Miracle. Yours in Christ, Joe M.

Dear Father,
I am asking you to please intercede for me and my loved ones. This situation is convoluted.

My only child has gotten herself into an awful mess. She is only 23 and expecting her 4th child.

The oldest child (who is 4) lives with me 4 days a week and her dad the rest of the time because of allegations made against my daughter's abusive partner.

The other two little kids (aged 3 and 2) are in foster care.

My daughter (and her partner) are living in a homeless shelter.

Her oldest daughter's dad is consummed with anger and bitterness. He is doing his level best to ensure that my granddaughter has no relationship with her mom.

I must stress that the allegation made was that my daughter's partner placed a plastic bag over my granddaughter's head and locked her in a cupboard. I am not God and do not know if this happened or not. All I can say is that whenever the little angel talks about it the story changes (it's a plastic bag then it's a paper bag). Also she has NEVER mentioned being locked in a cupboard and totally denies this happened. I have a feeling her dad has made that part up.

He is taking my daughter to court to gain custody over their daughter. He has told me countless times that he's not ready to be a full-time dad and that he has to plan for 'his' future. And his daughter doesn't really like being with him. She says he shouts and never plays with her. She wants to be with her mom and if she can't have that then she wants to stay with me. She may only be 4 but she is bright and highly articulate and knows her own mind. She is well aware that her dad hates her mom and that he wants to keep her away from her mother.

Please can you pray that my daughter and her ex-partner put aside their personal feelings and focus soley on their daughter and sort things out without having to go to court. That they can learn to co-parent together.

And can you also pray that my daughter gets her life on track and that the family can be reunited.

My heart is broken and I am literally sick with worry. What we need is a miracle but my prayers have fallen on deaf ears and I am hoping that maybe God will listen to you.

Many thanks and heartfelt appreciation.

Thank you Fr. Rookey for keeping me in your prayers and praying with me prior to my surgery on Feb. 27, 2013. With the grace of God and your powerful prayers, my meningioma was successfully removed! I just had my last 3 MRI's and they all looked good so I am clear for the next 5 years.
With this miracle I continue to spread your healing powers to all my friends and family undergoing surgeries and/or facing challenges in their lives.
You are a powerful person and we are so fortunate to have you with us.
May God continue to Bless you.
Again, Thank you Fr. Rookey for all you do.
Have a wonderful day.
Love you dearly...Maria and family

PS: Father Rookey,Please keep our dear friend, David and his family in your prayers. He was just diagnosed with a liver tumor and will face surgery soon.

Dear Fr.Rookey, pl pray for my family.the relationship between my daughter and her father is very complicated. They critize, attack and do not respect each other. The emotional environment is always tense at home.my husbando is rude to her and to me also.He does not think to prosper, he is very greedy with money and we lost the confidence on him at the financial aspects envolving the family. But he has a good side and I do not want to leave him, as he has noone else in our country. We are his family for sure.
Also, my niece is living with us for a while. I beg you to pray in order she find a safe, confortable and adequate place to live, as our house has not much place to accomodate her.
Soon I may be submitted to a surgery and I hope all will be ok with this and my health.
Also, I am facing a turning point and I must face new challenges on my life, so I am little unsecure about this situation.
So please, pray for my family , we share Divine Love, harmony, health and prosperity. We are in a very need of peace and love at home. Thanks Father for your Prayers.
