St. Jude Journal – June 2021

Our prayer to St. Jude can be deeply meaningful as we offer our needs for his intercession. The stress and heaviness that accompany difficult challenges are lightened knowing that when we call on St. Jude, he is there to give us hope and support. And we can experience peace of mind and heart when we recognize God’s role in blessings received and in the joys that fill our days. Let us remember to share our relief for that peace in prayers of thanksgiving.

Our devotion to St. Jude is also a source of direction for our lives, one that is known more and more profoundly as our devotional prayer continues over time. That direction may come to each person differently, but it always includes the clarity, hope, relief, and love that are the way of prayer with, to, and through St. Jude.

The next Solemn Novena to St. Jude takes place June 19th—27th at the National Shrine of St. Jude. Send your prayers and petitions and we will place them at the altar of St. Jude to be remembered at our Masses and Novena services during these nine days of prayer.

May St. Jude continue to guide and support you in faith.
