Novena to St Jude

Novena to St Jude


Saint Jude is the patron of Hopeless Causes, Desperate Situations.


About St. Jude

Saint Jude was one of Jesus’ twelve original apostles, so we can conclude that he was also at the Last Supper. Saint Jude is also known by the name Thaddeus, which means sweetness and gentleness of character.
He is often shown in drawings, like the one above, holding an image of Jesus in one hand and a club (a symbol of his martyrdom) in the other. Often the Holy Spirit is seen over his head as a tongue of fire (in remembrance of Pentecost when He came upon the apostles).
He is not the traitor Judas Iscariot.
Saint Jude, followed Jesus faithfully until His crucifixion, and then later worked on evangelization. Very little is known about his life, but we do know that he died as a martyr — some say around 65AD, giving his life to Jesus Christ. He is now one of the most invoked saints for intercession in desperate situations because his New Testament letter stressed the importance of a faithful person persevering in the environment of harsh circumstances.
This Apostle and Martyr has helped countless souls through his epistle in the New Testament and his intercessions on behalf of those who seek his aid in times of trial.

Novena to St Jude for nine consecutive days 
for your intentions asking St. Jude
 to intercede to God the Father, 
His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit 
on your behalf.

Prayers will be answered on or before the ninth day and has never failed

These two prayers to  St Jude can be used as a novena
( a prayer said for nine consecutive days.)

Prayer one
Oh glorious apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron saint of hopeless cases--of things despaired of.

Pray for me who am so miserable; make use, I implore you of that particular privilege accorded to you, 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 you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen
(Say 3 Our Father's, 3 Hail Mary’s, and 3 Glory Be’s after this.)


Prayer two
O Holy St Jude!
Apostle and Martyr,
great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ,
faithful intercessor for all who invoke your aid.
Special patron in time of need;
to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart,
and humbly beg you,
to whom God has given such great power,
to come to my assistance;
(mention your request)

help me now in my urgent need and grant my earnest petition.
I will never forget your graces and favors you obtain for me
and I will do my utmost to spread devotion to you. Amen.

St. Jude, pray for us and all who honor you and invoke your aid.
(Say 3 Our Father's, 3 Hail Mary’s, and 3 Glory Be’s after this.)

From the Bishop's Desk

That desiring to know what God has to say to you personally is the most important thing in the world. There are many who go through their whole life without ever wishing to know this and so remain ignorant of the things of God and who is God and what would He have them do; to their great detriment.
A personal message from our Bishop, sharing his thoughts and reflections on the word of God together with you on this journey of faith.
