October Solemn Novena to St. Jude


Novena Prayer to St. Jude

St. Jude, the Church honors you universally as the patron of hopeless and difficult cases. Pray for us in our needs. Make use, we implore you, of this powerful privilege given to you, to bring visible and speedy help where help is needed. Pray that we humbly accept the trials, disappointments and mistakes which are a part of our human nature. Help us to see the reflection of the suffering of Christ in the tribulations of our own lives. Let us see in a spirit of great faith and hope the part we even now share in the joy of Christ’s resurrection, and which we long to share fully in heaven. If it is God’s desire for us, we seek the following favors: (Here make your request.) St. Jude, we ask that all be accomplished according to the will of God, and thank you for your intercession in response to our prayers. Amen.
