St. Jude Journal – August 2023

Few changes are as quick to disrupt our lives as something that alters our health. A need for healing impacts each of us differently. Hopefully one of our early reactions is to reach out for healing and strength and hope through our faith.

For many of us, the path to healing starts with prayer. We ask God to give us His healing love, and maybe a bit more strength than we usually need. We also turn to St. Jude, the Patron of Hope, for the courage to approach our healing with patience and the peace of hope.

Our upcoming Solemn Novena to St. Jude, August 12th—20th at the National Shrine of St. Jude, is another way to share your needs for healing with St. Jude. While all petitions are definitely welcome for the Novena, these nine days of prayer are especially dedicated to asking St. Jude to intercede on our behalf for God’s healing.

May God grant His healing love to you and your loved ones.
