Saints Kosmas and Damianos

Saints Cosmas and Damianos

.

Twin brothers

born of the 3rd century

in Cilcia, Turkey

.

The patron saints of

physicians and surgeons

and those suffering

with blood disease

.

kindly hear

my anemic prayer

.

Saints who gave up their lives

so that others

may have comfort and mercy

.

Saint Kosmas

and

Saint Damianos

speak in gently whispered prayer

to God for me

.

O Gladsome Light of the Heavens

I implore the holy spirit

to take away my ailments

and be of service to others

that they see

of thy

Glory

.
