The St. Jude Journal – June 2019
Welcome to the St. Jude Journal. I am delighted to share with you letters of thanksgiving for St. Jude’s intercession, especially during the upcoming Spring Solemn Novena to St. Jude, June 15th—23rd. Please join with me and thousands of other devotees by sending your petition or letter of gratitude to the National Shrine of St. Jude.
We find many opportunities to strengthen our connection with God throughout our lives. Some paths we learn from our family, other opportunities arise through our friends. We may not always recognize some of our most promising opportunities at first—needing time and sometimes a new perspective to be open to discover and embrace the impact of God’s strength and wisdom. These connections and our continuing growth in living our faith invigorate our lives and help us face the challenges we meet.
The devotion to St. Jude is also a connection with God that develops within us. However the role of faith in our life matures, St. Jude is there for us. Whether your devotion to this quiet Apostle and the power of his intercession is relatively new or you have been praying the Solemn Novena for decades, St. Jude offers hope for every intention.
You can join in the Novena by sending your special intentions and we will deliver them to the altar of St. Jude to be included in the Masses and prayers of the Claretians throughout the nine days of the June Solemn Novena.
May St. Jude keep you in his continuing care.
