Novena to Saint Jude, the patron saint of hopeless causes and desperate situations.
To be prayed every day for 9 consecutive days
Most Holy Apostle, St, Jude
faithful servant and friend of Jesus
The church honors and invokes you universally
as the patron of difficult cases,
of things almost despaired of.
Pray for me,
I am so helpless and alone
Intercede with God for me,.
that he brings visible and speedy help
where help is most needed
Come to my assistance in this great need
That I may receive the consolation and help of Heaven
In all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly,
Make your request here…..
And that I may praise God,
with you and all the saints, forever
I promise O, Blessed St. Jude,
to be ever mindful of this great favor granted me by God
And to always honor you
as my special and powerful patron,
and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.
May the most sacred heart of Jesus be adored
and loved in all the tabernacles,
until the end of time.
May the most Sacred Heart of Jesus be praised and glorified,
now and forever.
St. Jude pray for us and hear our prayers
Blessed be the sacred heart of Jesus
Blessed be the immaculate heart of Mary
Blessed be St. Jude Thaddeus,
in all the world and for all eternity.
Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth
As it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
Who is Saint Jude Thaddaeus?
St. Jude, also known as Thaddaeus, was the brother of St. James the Less and a cousin of Our Lord Jesus Christ. He was one of the twelve Apostles, and his symbol is a club. St. Jude is frequently depicted with a flame encircling his head, which symbolizes his attendance at Pentecost, when he accepted the Holy Spirit alongside the other Apostles. St. Jude bearing an image of Christ, the Image of Edessa, is another symbol used to represent him.
Sometimes he is also pictured with a carpenter’s rule or the Epistle of Jude on a scroll or book.
Scholars of the Bible concur that St. Jude was the son of Clopas and that his mother, Mary, was the Virgin Mary’s cousin. According to ancient authors, he preached the Good News in Judea, Samaria, Idumea, Syria, Mesopotamia, and Libya. According to Eusebius, he returned to Jerusalem in 62 and participated in the election of his brother, Saint Simeon, as bishop of Jerusalem.
Saint Jude is not the same individual as Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Our Lord Jesus and lacked faith in God’s grace due to his grave sin.We highly recommend this Catholic book below that will help your faith. It addresses numerous questions and can be given to friends and family.
