St. Jude Journal – June 2022

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.

The next Solemn Novena to St. Jude takes place June 18th—26th at the National Shrine of St. Jude. These nine days of Novena prayer give us another opportunity in our lives to receive the strength of the Holy Spirit.

Join in the Novena by sending your special intentions and we will deliver your petitions to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine, where they will be remembered in our Masses and prayers throughout the Novena.

May St. Jude keep you in his continuing care.
