October 28th, Feast of St. Jude Thaddeus

Oh glorious apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused thee to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes thee universally as the patron of hopeless cases--of things despaired of. Pray for me who am so miserable; make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded thee of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (mention your request), and that I may bless God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise thee, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor thee as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to thee. Amen

  1. St. Jude's Novena
    "May the Sacred Heart of Jesus
    be Adored, Glorified, Loved & Preserved
    through-out the world, now & forever.
    Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
    Saint Jude, Worker of miracles, pray for us.
    Saint Jude, Helper of the Hopeless, pray for us."
    Say the prayer 8 times a day for 9 days.
    It has never been known to fail.
    Publication must be promised.
