Pray with St. Jude during Lent

Prayer to St. Jude for Lent

St. Jude, walk with me this Lent. Open my heart to the wisdom of God in His Word, and give me the strength to share that wisdom with others. Through this time of reflection, may I arrive at Easter energized to celebrate Christ’s Resurrection and more ready than ever to receive God’s love. Amen.

Thank you for joining us in prayer during Lent. Lent is a season of hope and renewal. In addition to our devotion to St. Jude, we can ask for guidance to keep our faith focused and strong. Each day of Lent is meaningful because we have the opportunity to turn our attention again and again to core aspects of our faith: love, charity, and prayer. As you read and consider these Lenten Meditations, know that our shared prayer and devotion to the patron of hope can enrich your Lenten journey. May the grace of God be with you during this season of renewal, in anticipation of the joy of Easter.
